    nothing is complete until we see some W's in the bright, Boulder sun at Folsom. this was the thing that always struck me as a younger Buff fan, once the McCartney thing was swinging.....not only were we running it at will on people....crushing the life out of them with linebacker play...cool in our hi-top with the low fades. but the helmets were so bright in the Colorado sun. teams could not deal with how bright we were. the clarity of the light in Colorado is the thing i always notice when i come back home from a trip or conference or whatever. yesterday, i was coming out of Norlin in the early afternoon, on the west steps, the vista of Norlin Quad....and it was like you could see every spiney needle on the trees around the flats. clear, endless blue sky all around. some puffy clouds. my eyesight sucks, but you guys know what i mean. the clarity of the light.

    i stood there for a couple minutes. the real gold helmets do this.

    cheers to you guys and Shoulder to Shoulder.....i feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders. no more South Florida helmets.

    Mick

    Like the Spartans with their shields, blinding the enemy as they met on the battlefield.

    who doesn't?

    there's no claim or braggadocio in whizzing at my place. kids, women....

    i never seen so many squat and go in the bushes since well....forever.

    it's cultural, and maybe not "right" but a man has the talent to "go" wherever....i should quote Rousseau here....

    but not in my yard. if you wouldn't call the popo if i did it in yours. i piss on the fence in Highlands Ranch, i get some Popo. you piss in my house, it's "tourism".

    it's a "state of nature" that brings men (sic) together in politics....but it brings rights and duties. not just pissing.

    I think Mick needs to get a few signs that say 'Please don't pee in my yard!!'. get a half dozen. then, on the morning of the BB.........plant them in your neighbors yards!!:thumbsup:
