In Britain, today, the 5th of November, is Guy Fawkes Day, a fact most red-blooded Americans should know only because of its centrality in the plot of V for Vendetta.
This is the movie’s final scene.
If you’ve listened to either of our TWERcasts, you’ll know that Natalie Portman’s feelings for V are the same as my feelings for Pat Dye.
And when the day comes for Coach to go up to that great Japanese Maple farm in the sky, this will be our obit:
He was Pat Dye… and he was my father.. and my mother. My brother. My friend. He was you. And me. He was all of us. No one will ever forget that game and what it meant for this country. But I will never forget the man and what he meant to me. Nor his pants.
Nor (obviously) how much I love that Kelly Walker at OffBeat Auburn was able to accomplish my vision of syncing the locker room speech after the 1986 Iron Bowl with the sweet spot of the 1812 Overture.
I play it all the time. It feels right. It feels so right.

Did you post the link for that sync up? I did not see it on the site you referred to, but would like to see it.
