ESPN Clasic is currently airing the 1998 Florida-Tennessee game. Ugh. Florida lost in OT after Collins Cooper missed a field goal in OT. This was after 5 Florida turnovers, including a fumble on the goal line by Terry Jackson. A truly miserable game that ended up fueling Tennessee's National Title run. I would never want to remember this night if it wasn't for one thing.
One of my roomates paid another of one my roomates (there were 4 of us) his share of the phone bill in Xanax...ahh college. Anyway, the recipient of said pharmaceuticals ended taking 4 of them at once. As anyone who is familiar with Xanax will tell you, this invariably leads to passing out. He was out so cold that we shaved his head and another one of our friends punched him in the face after Copper's missed field goal (Hard, I mean really, really hard). He didn't wake up until the next morning at 8(ish), at which point he knocked on my door. I struggled out of bed and saw him standing in my doorway with a confused look on his face. I blankly looked at him and asked what he wanted. To which he replied, "Why isn't the game on TV?"
"Because it's eight in the morning." I said.
"No way. Did we win?" he replied.
"No." (closing bedroom door).
That former roomate of mine is now a pharmacist. I swear to you.
