football saturday

My beloved Georgia Bulldawgs beat Kentucky 62-17 today. Yeah, the game was a blowout, but it SHOULD have been. Kentucky is not only the worst team in the Southeastern Conference--- they are one of the worst teams in the country. Georgia did what they should have done to them.

Now, let's see if the Dawgs can jock up for next week against Auburn. That will be one hell of a game. Georgia had better play with zero defects if they intend to win.

I needed some groceries this morning, so I went to Kroger's, and then ended up stopping off at a local seafood market and buying a pint of fresh Harris Neck oysters (shucked) and a pound of shrimp. I ate every one of the oysters (raw) with some tabasco sauce and horseradish while I watched football.

Those small Harris Neck oysters are incredibly delicious. They are salty, slick and sublime. Pop one in your mouth and you become one with the marsh, the salt water, the tides and all the creatures therein. Savor that experience. Mother Ocean, I can TASTE YOU!

Tennessee put me right off my oysters by losing to Notre Dame this afternoon. Bejus on a bicycle! Georgia fucked up, played like Fido's ass and let the Volunteers beat them earlier this year. That made Tennessee the flagship of the SEC East. And the Volunteers honor that position by letting a bunch of interlopers from South Bend, Indiana beat them in Neyland Stadium?

Today is a sad day for the South. But the oysters were good.


I have heard that those are the best oysters, too. Wish I could still do raw oysters, but I have to settle for them fried now. Or in a lovely stew. But you lose all of that wondrous flavor that way.

I had a friend who used to suck raw oysters up his nose as a party trick.

Don't know if he really enjoyed them that way, though.

Yes....Go Bulldogs!!!
Georgia over Auburn would definately help my Badgers in the BCS standings.

Notre Dame Sucks. I have never forgiven them for the 1973 Sugar Bowl when they stole the National Championship from Bama.
