Oh goddamn. I'm sitting here writing and half-listening to the Notre Dame/Purdue game. They cut to a Holly Rowe, a reporter on the field who talked about the Purdue coach calling time outs and coaching up to the end of the game, depsite the fact that it's 49 to 21, Notre Dame with under three minutes to go. When they cut back to the commentators in the booth, Ron Franklin said, "It's not a matter of not giving up, sweetheart. The score is 49 to 21." Thank the christ I don't have surround sound, because that patronizing tone of voice coming from all corners of the room would have been too much. SWEETHEART.
