I am cruising at 37,000 feet and
listening to the Federal Air Control
Channel, while suddenly the pilot’s
voice crackles,” I saw the game, and
unfortunately they lost  21-14,”
and some other pilot, somewhere,
responds, “Yeah, if they couldn’t stop
what San Diego was running at them,
how are they going to stop Ricky
Williams next week?” and now I’m
saying into the microphone I don’t
even have, “Jeez, can you forget
about the game, and just keep your
eyes on the road.”
