"That you may ruminate"

…On Rare Victory.

Posted by Steve on November 15, 2008

Vanderbilt, where I went to college, just beat Kentucky. That’s our sixth win this season. That makes us bowl-eligible for the first time since 1982.

1982. That was 26 years ago.

In other words, Vandy’s going to go to a bowl game for the first time during my lifetime. And as I’m an alumni, I’m going to go ahead and assume I’m older than any of the players – who are, after all, current students. So all those players have just earned their school’s first bowl game of their own lifetimes.

I’m going to make another assumption: they’re all very, very, excited right now and feeling very, very proud of themselves. Good for them. They should be feeling that way!
