My Tribute

So, I was walking home from the Blue Moon, the only coffee shop available in Hastings (that's fairly important--I'm in Hastings right now) today. I stopped at a video rental place, and, while I was there, I noticed someone familiar: ex-Husker quarterback Joe Dailey was here. Apparently, his girlfriend goes to Hastings College (and by the way, there is some speculation that he will transfer to Hastings College for that very reason--you heard it here first), so he frequents my hometown. As I was trying to determine if it was, in fact, him, he saw me staring a couple of times. I felt stupid, but mainly, I felt an overwhelming sense of pity for him. Poor kid, his failures have drawn the attention of the nation and the disgust of the Husker Nation. I know he was terrible, but I really felt sorry for him.

Suddenly, a song came to mind appropriate to Joe and his situation. So, allow me to post my tribute to Joe, courtesy of Derek Webb.net. (Disclaimer: Just remember that I'm an angry member of the Husker Nation, too.)

Nothing is Ever Enough
She's not real
She’s the spokes on a wheel
The way she moves
Will take you where you wanna go [Unless you want to go to a bowl game]

You're the one
That she steals from
But if not you
She’s gonna find somebody else [Who apparently will be Zac Taylor]

‘Cause nothing is ever enough
Nothing is ever enough
and you love her
But you know you got to leave her
She’s leaving you with
With no way out [I'd say that about sums up a fourth-string position]

And she's a jewel
In the nose of a fool [Well, we'll just see how Callhan pans out]
She’s beautiful
But she don't know who she is [West Coast? Option? A mix???]

And you're a wreck
Because you suspect
She’ll never be
Who she was years ago [Oh, wait, that's everyone who lives in Nebraska]

‘Cause nothing is ever enough
Nothing is ever enough
and you love her
But you know you got to leave her
She’s leaving you with
No way out
and you love her
You know you got to leave her
She’s leaving you with
With no way out

Maybe you don't see it
but she’s waiting everywhere you're gonna go
in the faces of the people
Who look at you like someone that they know [That's me!]

And you love her
But you know you got to leave her
She’s leaving you with
No way out
and you love her
But you know you got to leave her
She’s leaving you with
No way out [Enjoy being a Bronco, Joe!]

(to be read in the most monotonous, apathetic voice possible:)
Oh no. Please don't go, Joe.

For some of you who may not have heard (Andrew was in this category), and who could not figure it out from my post. Joe has already decided that he is leaving the team, but he has not declared where he is going.
