Great moments in history as called by CBS Sports college basketball commentator Billy Packer. (Hear Packer blow the most obvious call of the year here.)
Packer: An angry mob of Bostonians is squaring off against a small band of soldiers, and it looks like things could get ugly. I mean, tempers are hot, people. The Bostonians are taunting the soldiers. You know, they remind me a little of a young Michael Jordan, the way he used to toy with his opponents, try to unnerve them. The Bostonians are doing the same thing. Their star center, Crispus Attucks, is really letting the redcoats have it. He’s right in their faces. The mob is daring the soldiers to fire and is starting to hit at them with clubs and a sword. The redcoats have loaded their muskets and, oh!, they’ve fired into the crowd! Attucks is down! Several others are scattered on the ground around him. Now, you hate to see that, you really do. But you know, if you’re going to taunt you have to expect to get a reaction. I mean, that mob had it coming. The officials ought to let that one go.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
