On this day in history. 2 great sport moments. 1 good....and 1 not so good.

Kirk Gibson hits his shot to win game one. One of those "Natural" moments in life. Secondly....the Canes were robbed of another national title because of the BS Cleveland Gary fumble call and the refs gifted Lou Holtz and his saliva filled mouth a title. When the rivalry was one (if you can call it that) ND stole it that day. 

Go Irish...

You should know I am a ND football fan,(used to live in SB) and I hate the Miami Swagger! One of the best days of my life was all three of the Florida teams losing last week! 
 

Still love you Seeking!

No worries guys! Just having fun on 10/15. Everyone goes to Gibson today. I go to that crap fest called of a game. I'll never forget Musberger saying it best years later. That's when ND's fathers actually allowed players into the the university and that's why they could compete.

Yes sir. My 3 favorite movie characters ever.

1. Val Kilmer as Doc

2. Anthony Hopkins  as Hannibal 

3. Gene Hackman as Coach Norman Dale

Good list. 

I remember reading Gene Hackman thought Hoosiers would be the end of his career but took the job anyway.

Forgot to mention yesterday. Yesterday was the end of 13 days and Cuban Missile Crisis. One of the most underrated or least reflected on times in our history. Fresh off the Bay of Pigs JFK had to look a certain way, military guys wanted war....still JFK knew diplomacy in the eyes of the world mattered. Just a great stretch for history buffs like myself.

My Dad was in the blockade of Cuba, can't remember the ship he was stationed on.  But he tells one helluva story if ya feed him enough beer.
