Election Day

Posted: November 5, 2008 in Election '08

Early on, the polls showed McCain ahead in everything, but Obama took over the lead and maintains a nice lead over McCain in Florida with 27% of the precincts reporting. McCain remains ahead in all other states reporting their small percentage so far.

In effort to keep objectivity, because I am a very subjective person, in case you haven’t already figured out, I turn to the sports world where these two guys took time out from their busy day to talk to Chris Burman of ESPN during halftime of Monday Night football about sports matters and what they learned about themselves. Obama said he never got too high when things were great, and never got too low when times were tough. When asked what he would change about sports, he said, “It’s about time we had a playoff system in college football,” obviously being fed up with the BCS standings. When asked what valuable lesson he had learned in the sports world, he mentioned his old high school basketball coach, at times when Obama would rebel against the team or anything desired of him, telling him it wasn’t about him, it was about the team. He claims to have used this approach in his politics.

McCain was also asked about changing one thing in the sports world. He wanted to prevent the spread and use of performance enhancing drugs. McCains most valuable lesson also came when he was in high school when an old coach told him to always do the honorable thing, even if no one was looking, because even if no one else knew, he would know. Instead of being asked what he learned about himself through the campaign, the senator was asked what he wanted people to think of when they saw his name on the ballot. After jokingly mocking Chris Burman’s usual “He……could……go…….all……the…….way” chant as something he wanted people to think, he seriously said, “That I always put my country first.”

Well, rock on with that. As for me; I’ll continue to put sports first,………………………………………and Gary Gibbs on my D-Bags list!!!!!!!!!!!

PS: Notice the clever placement of the two senators in the picture above.

PSX2: Oh, speaking of voting, vote on my poll posted below about the Hornets, already.
