I love all seasons equally, but I'm getting really psyched for fall. And that, besides playoff baseball, means Husker football! I got a DVD a while ago with some old Nebraska games, and tonight after the Sox game I broke out the 1971 Orange Bowl. I found this warning by the NBC announcer to young athletes interesting...

"You young athletes watching today's game should know that the NCAA has condemned the use of any drug by college athletes. Its team doctors agree there's no known drug which helps a player to perform better, despite some rumors you may hear. Naturally these doctors warn against the use of illegal drugs by all young people. The drug scene isn't smart or cool, it's dangerous and destructive. College athletes who depend on their minds and bodies to win games know it. Players don't pop pills."

And just as I was about to post this, the same announcer asked for donations for the Pakistan flood victims! Guess they had a big one in November of '70, too. Worst disaster of the century, they called it....
