The Pam Ward Chronicles: Week 12

Saturday, November 15, 2008


So, I kind of have to preface this: I'm not going to be as attentive to the quotes as usual today. That is because there's a big wildfire going on in my part of the world, which means I've been asked to work overtime and I figured, better Saturday than Sunday, because I don't want to sacrifice a live-blog. So, blame Mother Nature. I'll be as attentive as I can (and since I'm working I'll have access to more than one TV at a time), but please do me the favor of being your usual selves and leaving as many golden bits as possible -- and I'll try and sneak in time to update the thread with the best ones.

Without further ado: here is your schedule for Week 12. Our leader and matron saint will be calling N'Western visiting the big house; second place Dr. Lou will be in the studio, and Crazy Uncle Gary will be at the Swamp in Gainesville for South Carolina vs. Florida.

I promise things will be normal on Sunday and I'll be as attached to my computer and couch as the rest of you.

Hey everybody, AA here and I'm going to be tagging in for S2N as he dons a hose and tries to save the state of California. It's been awhile since I've been in and around a PWC so go easy on me. For your viewing entertainment I've brought you this video (via Deadspin), which could be one of the most ridiculous hit/catch combos that has ever taken place (:18 in)....



That was Chadron State College's Issac Stockton, and Issac is my new hero. Oh and since it's halftime of all these games, I argue you to change the channel to MTV and watch RockBand Battle.

Don't remember the exact quote or who said it, but someone on the OSU-Illinois game just said that Ohio State will be guaranteed a share of the Big 10 title if they win today. Michigan might have something to say about that (although, the odds of them losing to Michigan are small).

Wayne Larivee doesn't know his New York Boroughs. He said a Penn State player was from The Bronx, where he stated Joe Paterno was from. Charles Davis corrects him, saying correctly that JoePa was reared in Brooklyn.

Yes, the same Wayne Larivee who while working a Phillies-Cubs game on WGN in 1994 called Independence Hall "Freedom Hall", the name of the Lousiville Cardinals' basketball arena. Living in Virginia at the time, and being a native Philadelphian, I was livid. No wonder I hate him.

Nothing to do with announcing but I am just amazed at how South Carolina continues to shoot themselves in the foot this game. 2 turnovers that led to 2 Florida touchdowns and then on the kickoff following the 2nd TD SC tried a Music City Miracle-esque pass. The Miracle that happened? The ball was overthrown, recovered by Florida, and taken to the "one foot line".
