Taylor was among the best. But we can't have a Safety leading the team in tackles.
A few people still make this Iraq today = Germany WWII analogy. Other than Saddam and Hitler having moustaches, I don't see it. Kuwait = Europe? Some bio attacks on his own = Holocaust? Hijackers from Saudi (for the millionth time, not Iraq) = Kamikazees? Whatever makes you feel righteous, I guess.
I love the fact that, if you're great at this and don't kill yourself on the way down, you're rewarded with a full contact slam at the hands of a huge Rugby player. There may be more hope for the NFL in Europe than I previously thought. All they need to do is lose the pads.
I agree that the media's portrayal is inaccurate. This is editorial, not objective. But I don't think we accomplished our goals (only keep adjusting them) and I disliked the goals to start. The military does its best to execute its mission. My issue is with policy makers who deploy the armed forces recklessly. I don't believe the invasion makes us safer or "defends" us. It's aggressive, alienates us from the world and encourages future attacks. Many disagree. Appreciate your comment though.
Mini malls are a good thing. Maybe the best of things.
For Trojans who've always wanted to know what it feels like to run down the tunnel in the Coliseum, I suggest Nike's L.A. Run Hit Remix. It's a 10k that finishes with a trot down the hallowed hallway and onto the field. The stadium seats were empty but I still got chills. Well worth the pain of running 6 miles.
