I didn't even realize the Huskies were playing tonight until about five minutes after kickoff. Needless to say, I left work soon thereafter in hopes that I'd be able to catch at least some of the game on TV. I got home in time to watch the second half.

First off, what a surprise to see them play so well! All the preseason talk had me prepared for a pretty abysmal season, so it was refreshing to see them dominating on both sides of the field. As much talk as there's been about Locker, I've been hoping for a spark from the running game (for a few years now), so it was fun watching Rankin get his seventh career 100+ yard game.

It was also nice to finally see my dawgs play in HD. I wasn't sure I'd even manage to see them in SD on FSN Northwest, so seeing that the game was being broadcast on ESPN HD was a pleasant surprise.

That being said, I think I actually felt a little nauseous after watching Syracuse's nasty orange uniforms for over an hour. Also, I think the game's announcers were three of the biggest nuggets I've had to endure since a few years ago, during the Seahawks game against the Redskins, when the announcer came just short of admitting he had a Mark Brunell RealDoll at home.

And then finally, who tipped the guys off at ESPN that I'd be much more interested in some baseball newbie's failed attempt at a perfect game than watching my favorite college football team tear it up against Syracuse?
