Two great snippets from the EDSBS preview of tonight’s game:
Weather: Perfect and Valhalla-ish, because it is California, the place that would be perfect if everyone else hadn’t already figured out the same thing and moved there before you did. 68 degrees and clear at the kick as the sun sinks in pink-red glory behind the lip of the Rose Bowl. The grass will be the color of emeralds. You’ll hate not being there.
The Other Crew: The Perrier-Jouet crew of Herbstreit and Musburger. You will look live. You will be “WOO!’”d by Herbstreit and his beautiful highlights and telegenic blue eyes. You will actually see this game, because shit all you may on ESPN for other things, they do know how to do this sport beautifully and competently. (Unlike those eye-rapists at Fox.)
