The Ghost of Holidays Past

I was about to post a rousing "Fuck Texas!" entry when a disturbing image flashed across my memory screen. I'm at the 2003 MLA, wandering around the lobby of the Hyatt, and I keep seeing people wearing that pale rusty orange long favored by "Bloods" and their blue-hating Latino brethren. And then I realize that the Longhorns are in San Diego along with me. It's Holiday Bowl time.

Despite having complained bitterly about getting shut out of the BCS because Kansas State beat the shit out of Oklahoma, Texas went on to lose to unsung Washington State. This year, they're headed to the Rose Bowl, where I'm hoping Michigan plasters them. But I won't be in Pasadena -- even though I have a place to stay -- because Cal has more class than Texas. It does sound like divine providence. Unfortunately, it's sort that put W in the White House. So, yes, "Fuck Texas!"
