A Box Score is Worth a Million Words

ATTENTION FOOTBALL FANS!!! Stop whatever you're doing this morning, especially if it involves Chris Berman or Tim Russert, and head immediately to and click on the story about yesterday's Navy-North Texas game.

Don't bother with the story. Anyone with a pulse knows by now the final was Navy 74-North Texas 62. Just take a gander at the stat box and the scoring summary, and let your imagination run wild. Eleven touchdowns scored in one 15:46 period of play. The North Texas quarterback completed 40 of 50 passes for 478 yards and 8 TDs, and not did his team lose, they didn't cover!

Here is a challenge to our country's vast surplus of sports cable television networks. It is you duty to show America next week's half hour coach's TV shows by the Navy and North Texas mentors. You know, the ones where they show highlights and break down the game. The two poor guys won't have enough air time to show all their own team's scoring.

Michael - not to quibble but the line was Navy -15.5 - so North Texas did cover (thankfully).
