Last week was a momentous one for Rutgers Athletics. We ( I say not royally) were invited to join the Big 10 Sports Conference (see "The Bigger 14"). In a sense, one could say, that's a form of "Power Ball".
A little over 6 years ago, the Rutgers Football Gods gave us a glimpse of how we'll strive to play in this new league, without all the sputtering, terrific to awful efforts since them. We beat Louisville that night, and had a chance to win the Big East Championship that season, but we didn't. We've had our chances since then, all missed opportunities.
Tomorrow, Thursday, 11/29/12, we get another chance to play "Power Ball", and finally win the Big East. We'll be playing Louisville again. At home, again. It would be fitting to win, if our stars remain in alignment with our Big 10 good fortune.
But first, tonight is the real Power Ball lottery drawing. If things are REALLY going our way, and one of us wins, let's not forget the Jersey Shore, and all its people in need.
If I were to win, I'd sure help God clean up what the Devil washed in.
