The Express

Dori and I are planning to take the kids to "The Express," a movie premiering October 10. The storyline is about Ernie Davis, the Syracuse running back who was the first African-American to win the Heisman trophy. Davis was destined to a great NFL career before leukemia claimed the life of this great man. Will mentioned his interest in this movie the other day. Here's more:

Tonight, I ran a surprisingly easy four miles in 36:29, a 9:07/mile pace. Soreness from Saturday's run was minimal. I felt like I was running at 80 percent in the warm, dry conditions, but knew better not to press it after a long one. A cold front is coming through tomorrow morning, so running this week will be wonderful.

Commodore fans are having fun talking about potential signs to hoist behind ESPN's College Gameday crew, kinda like this.

Here are some sign ideas from my fellow Commies and one from me (the last one). Some of these are inside Vanderbilt/SEC/college football, so enjoy if this is down your alley.

Vanderbilt Bandwagon: Looking for Volunteers
Memorial Magic: Let's Take This Outside
Same old (crossed out) new Vandy

Syracuse University unveiled and dedicated a statue to Ernie Davis, the 1961 Heisman Trophy winner. One problem: statue has Davis wearing Nike cleats, which did not exist until a decade or so later. Oops.
