Thumbin' Through Michigan v. Notre Dame

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Thumbin' Through, I bring my Treo to every game and thumb out my thoughts as the game goes on. This is complete stream of consciousness. The idea is to put you, Being John Malkovich style, right inside my head as the game goes on. Sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it's painful. Often it's obscene, but it's never boring. So if you have delicate sensibilities, I would recommend you skip this posting and continue on to the rest of site. Regards - Ed.
