freaky. reminds me of the a news clip i saw a few years ago of lightning striking a field during a soccer game. everyone on the field dropped like flies. think some of the players may have died.

What's with the guy who's just standing there looking at the twister? He's mesmerized. Then he's like, "Okay, everybody sort of crouch down."

Bah, it's just a dust devil. Actually, I'm very happy for them that it wasn't a real tornado. That would've been bad.

I've been on a baseball field when one of those suckers started up, back when I was in high school...It's a pretty cool thing to watch, but not anywhere close to the level of a tornado.

Did your eyes get a good sandblasting? I had that happen in a dust devil once. Not a whole lotta fun, really.

The following is done in a very thick Southern (US) accent: God has spoken! Nay to those who call soccer "football"! The real football is played on a gridiron, as He intended! With helmets and pads and cleats, and with the precious pigskin! Amen! /remembers in high school about a football coach who ranted about how soccer was a sissy sport.
