SI confirms what we all already know, VY should have won the 2005 Heisman. We here at SMSB have not been shy about pointing out how VY has owned Reggie Bush, from the 2005 National Title game, to winning the 2006 NFL Rookie of the Year, to whupping Reggie head-to-head earlier this season on MNF.

According to SI, not only was Bush’s 2005 Heisman bogus, Leinert’s ’04 Heisman was as well because Adrian Peterson clearly should have won that year instead.

Adding to my list of favorite party names:

(1) Oil for Us Let it Gush LLC;

(2) Raw Crude Zeal LLC; and

(3) Oil is the Best Friend of a Goil LLC.


Apparently, all three of these foreign (to Texas) companies are suing Plano-based Energytec Inc. in the Northern District of Texas for allegedly operating a ponzi scheme.

That’s right, the company with the most normal-sounding name is accused of being the fraudulent one.

In a curious turn of religious teaching, some Christian groups across the county have apparently become convinced that I-35 is a Holy Highway.

This movement began a few years ago and traces its roots to passage in the Book of Isaiah. Chapter 35, verse 8 reads:

And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it.

Well, both because the first letter of the Book and the chapter number form the moniker of the highway (“I-35”), and because the verse talks about a road, these believers intuit that I-35 is indeed the road of which Isaiah wrote.

Holy Highway

Being far from a biblical scholar myself, I can’t say one way or the other. However, having frequently zipped along the Texas portion of I-35, I can confirm that–if Isaiah 35:8 is a prophecy–it has not yet come to pass because “wicked fools” still predominate on I-35.
