Listening to a Heisman ceremony hype bit on TV...
"Which one of these players shall transcend greatness?"
"The heroes of old will welcome another member into their elite club."
"Will Tim Tebow make history and become the 2nd player ever to win the Heisman?"
Wow. The first two I find in poor taste, but the third statement is just a joke. How is doing something that's already been done "making history"? At least, how is it making history any more than any subsequent incident of the same thing? 2nd, 3rd ... 100th. They all get in the history books just the same, as not-the-firsts. No record would be broken. Sheesh.
Thank man for booze. It makes me numb to the disgracefulness. These awards and things used to mean something, I think.
