Third Saturday in October, Secretary of State Rice knows where the action is, and she's not rooting for the Vols

The NY Times reports here that Alabama-native Condoleeza Rice is meeting with the British Foreign Secretary in Alabama where they will "perform the pregame coin flip when the University of Alabama football team faces Tennessee in Tuscaloosa, and then stay to watch the game."

Here the Washington Post explains that Ms. Rice is an old Bama football fan who once dated Rick Upchurch of the Denver Broncos.

The White House needs to put out some football stories about Harriet Miers. Maybe call in former Dallas Cowboys Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly, Walt Garrison, and Lee Roy Jordan. Or, Bob Hayes, Rayfield Wright, Mel Renfro, and Calvin Hill.
