Speaking of obscure ones, the Bears' mascot feature is a riot.

Although the length of most games is still pretty annoying. ...

Butkus was the first one that came to mind. The story about him spitting on Mick Tinglehoff's hands at the line of scrimmage always cracks me up.
I liked the Lawrence Taylor one as a kid, too because he was mic'd up and they bleeped so much....

There was a lot of anti-FSU sentiment in the bar I was at and I noticed only one couple that were clearly ND fans.
People seemed to get angrier about the offensive PI call than excited when the TD was scor...

They didn't show a replay in the stadium and she tried walking it off on the sideline, so I didn't think it was too serious.
Then a few people in my section were saying during the 2nd half there was a fracture, but no idea where they heard that from....

Agreed. It started out interviewing a bunch of people, like those whose family members got them tickets to the game, then never went back to them for their reactions. The only individual story it really followed was the firefighter who got rescued.

While some Native Americans might not like the term Redskins, there are evidently many who do.
The NCAA tried being PC about the same issue. The Seminoles of Florida AND Oklahoma said they both liked FSU's name.
One of the Chiefs of the Ute people was a Utah football season ticket holder.

Patterson lost this one imo.
They weren't ultra conservative when they went up 21, but they weren't as aggressive as I thought they should've been with 11 mins left, considering how the defenses were playing.
I didn't even mind going for it on 4th down at the end, but TCU needed a higher per...

I was talking with my one Gator friend this week and we were talking about how fun this game might be since neither one of us have expectations. It's just about winning the game, no matter how we do it.
It's still LSU football...try to enjoy it.

Dealt with post-Katrina stuff, losing my job and breaking my leg, all in a short period of time.
Drank heavily for awhile after that until friends and family stepped in. Went to psychotherapy for a year and it did the trick. The physical therapy for my leg helped as well because it kept me active...
