The most nerve-wracking SDSU football games of 2018, ranked

Two years ago I spent most of the final drive of the Cal game lying face down on the floor of my brother-in-law’s living room in Texas, trying hard not to emanate any scream or exultation or stream of expletives that might stir — or permanently scar — my niece and nephew sleeping nearby.

TONIGHT, WE DINE IN HELL!
If you stopped reading after a 300 quote, I don’t blame you. Rest assured that this is just as ham-fisted an idea as anything else I’ve had, and I simply looked it up. It’s bad, but not that “wow, this guy actually enjoys and is quoting 300” level of bad. Kind of like San José State football! *thumbs up*
