Incidental contact. The quarterback went headfirst instead of feetfirst. He was nothing more than a running back at the time. We did get away with some penalties though, as did the other team.

I think Clowney got away with one.  What think ye?

For our wandering Scotsman.

Paratroopers from England, Scotland, France and the US were on a plane. During World War II, four paratroopers each from England, Scotland, France and the US, were on a plane about to jump when they realized there was only one serviceable parachute. The French paratrooper downed a glass of cognac, said "Pour la France!" and jumped without the parachute. The American downed a glass of bourbon, said "For freedom!" and jumped without the parachute. The Scotsman downed a glass of whiskey, said "For Scotland!" and threw the Englishman.

Recently the blog IN THE NATIOAL INTEREST reported that the 2D Calvary Regiment would get the new anti GPS jamming system to test its effectiveness. Stay tuned.

Yeah Harry, we really blew that one with SF. Had plenty of chances to win at the end but couldn't get it done. Some bad calls by the refs didn't help, but that's a story for another group.
