After their speeches….a very brief ECT interview was conducted with Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana on behalf of College Football Fans all across our great Nation.
ECT: Gov. Jindal, will LSU make it to the NCAA College Football Championship again this year?
Gov. Jindal: Absolutely!
Right after this…Texas Governor Rick Perry was asked next what he thought of Governor Jindal’s comments.
Gov. Perry: You know “those boys in Louisiana know something about playing football!”
ECT: Indeed they do, Governor Perry!…now what part of Texas do you buy those wonderful socks?
Funny Side Note: Just like our own ‘Daily Fishwrap’ newspaper the Aspen Times newspaper is also part of the “Swift Family” of local/regional newspapers.
So, why is it that these “not-so-Swifties” have trouble counting to 10? The Aspen Times news story about Governor Romney’s visit to Basalt (Click Here) insists there were 11 Governors, not 10.
