Is coming nearer on the path.

On the Banks of the Old Raritan

I've been terribly remiss here, yet again, and this is not the time to get into it or make up for lost time. But it's kick-off for Rutgers-Louisville, and I'm struck by how much pride I feel for my heretofore football deficient alma mater -- that they are, at a minimum, serious spoilers for a team's national title hopes, and at the outside very serious contenders for a BCS bowl if, alas, not title contenders.

The biggest game for Rutgers in 137 years, since they played Princeton in the first college football game ever.

They win the toss and take the ball to open the game before what might well be their first true sell-out ever. They're moving the ball methodically, eating clock. I've gotta go.
