A moment of nerdery: One letter off famous quotesOctober 25, 2009 at 12:57 am | Posted in Football, Idiocy, Media, Minda's Take, NCAA football, Nerdery | 2 Comments
The Husker football team had more turnovers than points today (8 and 7, respectively) in what some are calling the worst loss in team history. Only really crappy teams lose to Iowa State, and only historically sloppy squads turn the ball over EIGHT TIMES in one game to a team like that. Or at all. (Sorry, ISU fans. It’s the truf.)
It was a dark day to be a Husker fan. It really would be best for me to not think about that crapfest of a game any more tonight, or ever again.
So as a distraction, I turn to Twitter. Joe Posnanski got on a roll tonight, posting a series of famous quotations with one letter changed. Here are some of my favorites.
