“The thing about football – the important thing about football – is that it is not just about football.” (Terry Pratchett)
That sure applies to this game today doesn’t it? With all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the match this afternoon and all the emotions; good, bad and indifferent, it all revolves around a set of numbers up on a scoreboard at the end of the game. Those numbers are going to make some people ecstatic and will make others want to kick their dog.
Don’t do that. Instead I invite you to my house to kick our two cats -” Joe” and “Pa”.
The final score will award bragging rights for one school and “Wait til next year you SOBs!” for the other. It’s going to be a good game to watch and let’s hope it is well-played, at least by Pitt, but everyone likes to see good solid competition by two teams battling each other out there.
