Jodie...You'd better graduate, yo

I've harbored a crush on Jodie Foster since before I even knew she belonged to our team (or, perhaps my preadolescent gaydar was just that good). Anyway, here she is giving the commencement speech to the University of Pennsylvania Monday. Them Ivy Leaguers stick together (Jodie, Yale, class of '85). Apparently, she was critical of our current political situation in her speech.
"The U.S. 'squandered' the goodwill and sympathy other nations offered after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, Foster said. She also criticized officials for the 'disastrous and shameful' handling of Hurricane Katrina."

But then she ended it all by quoting the great scholar Eminem. The AP says it was the chorus from "Lose Yourself." Soooo, if this is correct we missed hearing Jodie say, "You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow, this opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo."

Yeah, I don't really get it either. But enjoy these shots of Ms. Foster in her cap-and-gowned cuteness.
