The National College Football Championship ended up being between two SEC teams; Georgia and Alabama.  Living in Georgia made me aware of that fact, and having no affiliation with either team, I literally had no "dog" in that fight.  I was gripped by a mixture of anger and nausea as I watched the pretender to the Presidency walk onto the field, flanked by marines, but I endured.

So, watching two evenly matched, undeniably talented,teams should have been exciting, but I turned the T.V. off at half-time with Georgia leading 13-0.  I woke to find that Alabama won 26-23 in overtime.

I'm sure a host of Georgians are devastated, and a host of Alabamans, students and alumni feel that their rightful place as the best in college football has been restored.  

Am I just too old and cynical, or does this really mean nothing?

I found out the game had been played this morning trying to look something else up on line. 

It means what it meant when you were younger. It means what sports has always meant to the observers.

Somehow, it was much more exciting then.  My alma maters seemed more important, more closely connected then. I knew, but didn't care, that the school existed for its sports program then.
