While we all remember the far more important events of this morning 10 years ago, this afternoon will provide some comfort and allow us to let this day be one that can be remembered in a fitting member: with joy as well as sadness.  Like it or not, the NFL and NCAA seem inextricably tied to the image of the United States, both here and abroad.  In that sense, it only seems fitting that the country’s most beloved sport be occurring to comfort us and provide a means of escape after a long morning of rememberance.


Never forget.
