I'm sure he's happy when he goes to the games! :lol:

The only treatment for a football fever is to deal with it head on. So I waddled over to USC the other day, where they were having one of those torturous August scrimmages that football insists upon. After a couple hours of close study, here's my prediction:

USC will win the national title, then go on to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLXVIIY^%$$##.5, or whichever incarnation it is this season, down in Miami, I believe.

But USC it is. If I were a Vegas bookie -- and that would surely be a step up -- I'd make them a 3-1 shot. At the scrimmage the other day, here's what I saw:

Their offensive linemen are built like gigantic wine bottles. The Trojans also have half a dozen leggy running backs -- grasshoppers, really -- who can leap tall buildings in a single down.

The linebackers are carved from quarry stone and all seem to have the appropriate anger-management issues. This year's bunch, with more range than ever, were playing a little more in control. They will run through a wall for Coach Pete Carroll, then spit out brick dust, the opposing fullback and maybe a mascot or two.

Lord help the poor tailback who somehow makes it all the way to safety Taylor Mays, a Superman among boys, who pummels opponents like piñatas.

My dad's proud of him regardless. And my son's more into basketball.
