Late Night with Laura

Don’t you just hate it when you wake up early or can’t go to sleep because you have the most fantastic, fabulous idea and it won’t leave your brain? No need to get up and write it down because it is so earthshakingly brilliant it cannot be forgotten. New channels now exist in your brain because all the synapses fired at once, and like a flooding river changing course, the thought is PERMANANTLY etched in the landscape of your mind.

NOT! Last night I had the most incredible idea for a blog post. Probably a Pulitzer Prize winning idea. But, I was warm and sleepy and couldn’t be bothered to expose an arm to get the smartphone inches away and email myself a few key reminders, just in case.  Next time, next time I am favored by the Muses, I will get up and WRITE IT DOWN!

Today is the eleventh Saturday in Ordinary Football Season and our BCS intentions are for the repose of the rankings of the Oklahoma State Football team who lost in double overtime to some unranked nobody team last night. The significance of such a loss had people emailing me in the middle of the night to tell me (probably why I couldn’t sleep in the first place.)

Evidentally the mystery of the BCS football college championship rankings is only slightly eclipsed by that of the transubstantiation of the Eucharaist. Certainly it causes more dissention among the ranks of its followers than Martin Luther and King George combined.

The BCS formula provides us with alot of entertainment, speculation and anticipation. People argue about the system, but if there was a playoff system, they would argue about those rankings and seedings. Haters gonna hate.

Hopefully the LSU Tigers win out and I continue to enjoy the system that provides one of the few surprises left in this age of modern technology and rapid news.
