First, some sports:
Also, congratulations to the LSU Tigers, who once again staved off elimination with a 9th inning rally. Trailing 5-0, they scored a run in the 7th, a run in the 8th, and four runs in the bottom of the 9th to send Rice home and give themselves another shot at North Carolina. It's still uphill for the Tigers but, like their football counterparts, they keep plugging and good things keep happening. Oh yeah, one more thing:
Now, about this post's title: Weíve all seen this. Young men wear something they call shorts well below their waist. These shorts would be a good 6-8" below the knees if worn at the waist. Men my age wear them like that and they donít look bad. Young men wear them so far below their waist, though, that they have to actually hold them up with their hand to be able to walk. Usually, a substantial portion of their boxer shorts underneath are exposed as well. I think it looks ridiculous but it should also be noted that no one would or should ever take fashion advice from me. If thatís the style, so be it. No complaints from me. However, I must confess that I do laugh when I see something like this in the morning paper (Not sure but free registration may be required). Seems two boys (16 & 14) got into a car chase with police, wrecked the vehicle they were driving and several others, and then got out and took off on foot. That article picks up the story thusly:
As the "two young men" bolted from the Trailblazer to make a run for it, said Salzer, one was delayed because "his pants fell down to his ankles and he had to pull them up before he ran."Any takers?
78 days until football season ...
Quote of the Day
Surely at some point Tuesday afternoon, doubt and despair must have quietly crept into the LSU dugout.
It didnít stick around, though.

Quote from said blog: "LSU rallied for six late runs, including the final four with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, to claim a 6-5 win over the Rice baseball team in an elimination game at the College World Series Tuesday afternoon in Omaha, Neb. The Owls' 2008 season has come to an end with a final record of 47-15."
