In tense scene from violent American western film with much singing, "Oklahoma SSR!",

In tense scene from violent American western musical film of Cold War era, “Oklahoma SSR!”, here is moment before climactic fight with guns, when Curley is singing to Laurey song telling legend of “Pistol Pyotr” – while Laurey is loading gun, to vicious shoot Curley in zheludok!


Lone unbeaten team in world of Commie Football, Stanford Cardinal, is falling like Siberian pine tree, losing game finally in Week Nine to District 8 South division rival UCLA Bruins (6-3, #20). This is dropping Stanford (8-1) like old log to #3 Top Power rank, creating empty space for new team to occupy.

Who is new #1 team? Is Sooners of Oklahoma (8-1, #1), who is beating very much TCU Horned Frogs (6-3, #22), by score 51-22. This is creating curious situation in District 6 playoff hunt, where Sooners is now having better Top Power rank, but is stuck like tractor in mud behind Oklahoma State Cowboys (8-1, #2) in North division standings, due to 54-33 OSU victory over OU in Week 2.

Could #1 Top Power rank team in all of American college football be yet disqualify from playoffs?! Da, all is possible in brave, new world of Commie Football!

Sigh. I just adore musicals. Don’t you? Seriously, doesn’t everyone? Deep down inside, I mean? Even if they’re all like, “GRUUUNT. I HATE MUSIC THIS IS STUPID NOBODY JUST STARTS SINGING IN THE MIDDLE OF SENTENCE DURRH…” -ahem! (direct kyle quote) -ahem! ? All of the Rodgers and Hammerstein productions were like, mega-strong, but who’s fooling who? “The Sound of Music” is WHAT. THE. HILLS. BE. ALIVE. WITH. You heard the woman.  Well, Yale kinda blew it last week with a loss, so my dream of having them come back to win the Tier 2/District 1 title ain’t happening. But math isn’t really Bobby’s thing, so he hasn’t really figured out that Harvard’s definitely gonna finish with a better record. So this week, after the Massholes lost to MAINE of all teams, and Yale totally POUNDED New Hampshire, I was all like, “Hey Bobby! Bulldogs’re COMIN’!” and glare at him, and he’d like, slink away and disappear until he’d either get hungry and come looking for food, or want to use the inside toilet, ‘cuz he’s afraid he’ll see another Yeti creature or whatever, like that one time at the old outdoor latrine from last season’s Commie Football headquarters, or something. Hard to follow all his blabbing.
