The Day...
He --with brains, hero's record, passion, compassion, wit, grace, killer smile... love
of family -friends -nation --with nation's hopes for the future, went to the city of Brotherly Hate, of rabid who made right-wingers seem weak, as he waved to sparse crowd of well-wishers that sunny day... drove into murder, heart-breaking history November 22, 1963... from which we have neither forgotten nor fully recovered... rest in peace John Kennedy...

- After this so-called game (no, I'm not writing final score, too fed up), we know two things: 1) UCLA needs to Hire someone familiar with coaching and "football" - 2) Hang on to wallet, pets --Next year will be... ugly
