Samuel Longhorn Clemson said it: “Our long national championship is over.” Well, it was a football fan, mistaking the ghost of Mark Twain, and replacing his real name with a footballized name, lamenting mighty Clemson’s defeat, and misquoting our most football-famous commander-in-chief who uttered the phrase after a nation-changing turnover from one president to the next. Mark Twain never met Gerald Ford, unless they found each other in the afterlife. They’d find a lot to talk about. Some politics, but mostly humor, I suspect.
