Lou, you tried. They gave you nothing, but you tried. You were stuck out there with a few props, a whistle, and a Starter cap, and you made magic happen. Now they've put you in a suit, forced you to commit a felony by impersonating a doctor, and robbed you of your opportunity to look your team--that team, by the way, being AMERICA--and pump us up for the hard week ahead.
Oh, you might have thought you were just talking about Notre Dame, or Nebraska, or whatever doomed team you were trying to hype into believing they could beat a far superior team. But in reality, Lou, we were all taking a knee and drinking it in like wide-eyed freshmen. Like them, for one fateful instant, we believed.
Now you're Dr. Lou...which forces us to sing songs of lament and instant nostalgia.
