I promised my boy Aldo that if his beloved Florida Gators won it all, I would write a stirring tribute to them. Well, they did win (nay, they completely dominated), so here I am: eating my words again.
As if getting decimated in the BCS championship game wasn't enough, the Ohio State Buckeyes were completely devoured by the defending NCAA Men's College Basketball Champs, the University of Florida Gators. Although UF only won the contest by nine points, the game was much more out of reach than the score indicated. Simply put, Florida had their way -- in the second major championship game this year -- with OSU. In so winning, Florida became the first team in sixteen years to win the championship back-to-back.
There's your 'stirring tribute', Aldo.
To steal a little thunder from comedian Bill Maher, I'd like to establish my own New Rules.
New Rule: Ohio State teams must stop trying to beat Florida and leave the job up to the boys in the Maize and Blue.
Congrats Aldo. From the NBA Finals to the BCS championship, to the NCAA championship; it might be safe to say that Florida buys...I mean...uh...has the best athletes in the country.
Let the basking begin.
