Over New Year's weekend, many of you watched bowl games on TV. You watched as the same play was repeated again in slow motion then again in slow motion but with computer generated chalk marks keying you in on important components you probably missed. You poured beer and chips down the hatch while listening to ceaseless commentary and play by plays. You relived the same moments over and over until something else worth repeating indefinitely occurred. I did not. I cleaned and rearranged my room, got my oil changed and actually read a book, (gasp!).
