Lessons from 2004
I actually waited until 2004 was over before making my list of "Things I Learned in '04," but my memory is really hazy, so it'll be mostly "Things I Learned at the End of '04."
Folks who give away free money can still be stingy.
Foreign people die really, really easily. Hundreds dead from a nightclub fire? WTF?
New Englanders really love their Patriots. They're also still celebrating their World Series Win. I spent three weeks near Boston and never saw any Celtics merchandise. And the NFL Team-Themed Travel Kits are all sold out. Well, except for the 49ers. Fair-weather fans were out in force, which is strange for a people who live in a place with such poor weather.
Anyway, speaking of football, does the team ditch jerseys every year? Because it would be a bitch to clean out the bootmarks Texas Tech left all over Cal's secondary's back. The conclusion? Since Texas Tech kicked Cal's ass, and Texas kicked Texas Tech's ass, Texas must be better than Cal. In other news, Cal was better than USC last year. I wonder how they missed out on winning a piece of the national championship.
