Auld Lang Syne Lyrics

Auld Lang Syne Lyrics - Auld Lang Syne lyrics are familiar to many during the New Year. It is without question the go-to New Year's Eve tune.

It has appeared in dozens of films and television shows. It once provided the melody to Korea's national anthem. It has been covered by U2, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley.

A poet named Robert Burns took a fragment of an old folk tune and crafted a song that would come to represent honoring the past, celebrating the future and the power of friendship and forgiveness.

Auld Lang Syne Lyrics

“I heard Professor James Chandler of the University of Chicago point out not only that ‘Auld Lang Syne' was America's (and the world's) favorite New Year's Eve song, but that it was also the song featured in more Hollywood movies than any other except ‘Happy Birthday,' ” said Robert Crawford is a professor of English at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and wrote the award-winning “The Bard,” a biography of Burns.

“Think everything from ‘Sex and the City' and ‘When Harry Met Sally' to ‘It's a Wonderful Life.' I think the song works so well in so many cultures because (like quite a lot of Burns' best works) it calls a community together around it, acknowledging differences and separations, yet extending a hand in a way that overcomes these.”

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
