What a game! All hail ‘Horns.
I’ll defer to Tom Kirkendall and his 4 am post for a link with details.
My favorite memory: Rose Parade Grand Marshall and retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, carefully, deliberately, and impartially tossing the coin in the standard pre-game ritual. The winner–Texas. Sort of an omen, as it turned out.
The game and the pomp and the press were all over the top. But for a brief shining moment, Justice O’Connor showed more class and grace herself than everyone who will cram into a certain Senate hearing room in Washington DC on January 9th.
It was never more clear to me how much she will be missed.
