Gee. That didn't last long.
For roughly 24 hours, I could say I was in on history Saturday, having sat through two lightning delays, two evacuations of Notre Dame Stadium (for the first time ever, the chroniclers of all things Irish told us), and a football game whose elapsed time was 5 hours and 59 minutes.
That, according to the chroniclers, made it the longest game in college football history.
For a day.
Come Sunday, and here were Marshall and West Virginia kicking off a 3:37 p.m. Six-and-a-half hours and change later, after 4 hours and 22 minutes of lightning-and-thunderstorm delays, they finally called it at 10:20 with 14 minutes still to play, and West Virginia leading 34-13.
So much for posterity.
