When you need eighty eight
In under two
Make no blunders
Lest you miss
The last
Yard

Live life
As though
In the two minute warning


Ouch Tennesee!!!
That was a hard won loss there guys..!!

Rebel-
Last night I was telling  Pepper   that the last three minutes of the game were all one needed to watch ... and lo, and behold it came down to a two-minute warning !
(Pepper ... subtract a minute.)

What action !  Thanks.

I didn't (don't?!) have much interest in the SuperBowl (other than observing the interesting human behaviour that generally takes place around the event) but I do like your words here, Local Rebel. (Heck, I like your words, anywhere!)

When my final hour's ended
When my time on earth is thru
Please dear Lord, hear my prayer
I'm asking this of you
Let me live life to the fullest
Let me go all the way
And not be short by half a yard
Like Tennesee today!!

LOL...oh my, I won't dear show that to my 16 year old son who is a devoted Titans fan
