They Ought to Put Warning Labels...

On Vanderbilt football.

It's the real-life manifestation of the Peanuts cartoon where Charlie Brown lines up to kick the football and runs towards it, only to have Lucy pull it away at the last second and wind up on his back.

You could also describe Vandy football in terms of Camus's "Myth of Sisyphus", where the protagonist is condemned to rolling an enormous rock up a hill, only to have it roll back down the hill again and again. According to the gods, "there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor".

The Commodores could make anyone an existentialist. For you MTSU fans out there, have a literate buddy explain it to you.

Every year ends in disappointment. This one ended later than most years.

Every year I swear that I won't be back. Like a crack ho itching for a rock, I always go back.

Is it next year yet?

Let's just hope for a win over UT to mitigate the pain.
