Long Way, Short Amount of Time

I'm watching a replay of the 1993 Florida/Mississippi State game.

Near the bottom of the screen, a handful of SEC scores were shown but then a message flashed to call Jefferson-Pilot's "900" number for updated scores at $1.00/minute.  How quaint.

Obviously things have changed dramatically.  Every network provides nearly continuous national scores, and one can get scores sent to themselves via cell phone (either by a message service or accessing the internet), or hauling a laptop into the room and checking any of dozens of free "gamecasts", calling friends on cell phone for score updates on other games, or checking other cable, satellite and subscription channels to watch those games live.

1993 wasn't that long ago.  But I'm kind of glad it is considering the benefits gained through the passage of time.

Oh... and those 1993 Gators had a fine group of college receivers:

Aubrey Hill, Chris Doering, Jack Jackson, Willie Jackson, Harrison Houston

The Gators would go on to win the game 38-24
