Not an Offensive End

leave a comment »

If you can’t join ’em, beat ’em? UH never once led during the entire game, and as I recall never even brought it up to a tie. Although their quarterback has the most total offensive yards of any college quarterback this year, UH has no defense. And I don’t mean they’ve got a bad defense. I mean they literally have no defense. If what they call their defense simply had not even taken to the field, SMU would not have scored any more points any faster than they did.

Except that if UH had no defense, SMU had even less. So with only 24 seconds remained in the game, UH finally pulled ahead. Then the UH defense finally lucked out and caught SMU’s hail mary pass in the opposing end zone as the clock ran out.

If one has to watch football in Dallas, the only way this could have been better would have been if the losing team had been the Cowboys.

Curried Favorite

This curried corn chowder savored at a texmex restaurant we went to on Jenny‘s recommendation was one of the tastiest I’ve had. And I’d have it again at a moment’s notice, even if it was what wound me up so tight inside that I ate almost nothing for half a week after, versus the chicken quesadilla or corn chips that accompanied it for lunch, the cheese omelette or fried potatoes or bacon or english muffin that preceded it for breakfast, the tub of popcorn and heavy pretzel I had at the UH game later in the evening, or the buffalo chicken strips that finished the day off.
