Paint the Skyline Scarlet

I know it's been a while since the last post, but who would've ever thought that Rutgers football would be the catalyst to influence my decision to resume posting. As for my absence, I will briefly explain that this upcoming week. Right now, all I want to do is talk about "the game." First of all, that was one of the best college football games I've seen in a while. Probably the best since last year's Rose Bowl game between USC and Texas. Nobody, including myself, gave Rutgers much of a chance. I said all day that the game would be over by halftime. In the first quarter, Louisville made that prediction seem more than likely. After that, it was all Rutgers. I watched them play once or twice this season, but I did not think they were THAT good. Their defense was tenacious last night and really managed to get into Brian Brohm's head, especially after the first quarter.
Am I jumping on the Rutgers bandwagon with half the state? You bet your ass! All I know is that it feels good to have a team that isn't the laughing stock of college football. Speaking of jokes, I must say that I did not appreciate those clips ESPN showed coming out of commercial. You know, the ones where they went around NYC and asked people about Rutgers football and the people knew nothing about Rutgers? Newsflash to ESPN, the people of Jersey do not need to be accepted and acknowledged by the people of NYC. Do you know why they don't know anything about Rutgers? Because they aren't in the same state and aren't even that close to each other! Do I sound bitter? Maybe I am.
Anyway, in honor of Rutgers biggest football win ever, I decided to search for some appropriate songs...
