King Kaufman, the excellently sarcastic sports columnist for Salon, offers us his take on the LSU defeat today. With his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, he opines that if an LSU victory no doubt would have been heralded as uplifting to the downtrodden and displaced Katrina survivors, then should the press be talking about how the Tigers really let the survivors down. He offers us this fake quote which should have been reported this morning:
"I know it's only a football game, but I was really counting on LSU to lift me up in my hour of need, give me a little joy, and then they go and give up 17 unanswered points. Thanks a lot."
