football day

I like to blog, but I like football even better. I've been watching games all day, including the 48-28 victory of my beloved Georgia Bulldogs over Georgia Southern. Southern played tough, but the score doesn't really reflect the nature of that game. Georgia emptied the bench in the second half and Southern did well against the subs. The UGA first string could have made that game ugly.

But the DAWGS look formidable to me. That freshman tailback, Danny Ware, reminds me of the good old days of Georgia football. That boy runs hard. I look for success this season.

Good ole Bob hit me with 165 spams while I was watching TV. I Blacklisted his ass again, but I have no doubt that he'll be back under a different name. What a fucking cockroach.

Young Jack came to watch football with me today. He is convinced that he's good enough to win a college scholarship. "My daddy says that they PAY YOU to play football in college," Jack announced. I tried to explain that his daddy was slightly wrong with that idea--- Jack could get free tuition, free food, a free room and free books, but college football players DON'T get paid any money, at least not under NCAA rules. He didn't like what I had to say.

But I fed Jack a few slices of fresh pineapple and he liked it as much as I do. He went away a happy boy, with 12 of Quinton's Playstation II games in a bag. I've got no use for them anymore. I haven't heard from my son in almost three weeks now. I haven't seen him in six months. That just ain't right, but that's the way it is. Jack can play those games. No sense in leaving them here to gather dust.

My upset pick of the day? Wake Forest will beat Clemson.

(UPDATE: Okay, I was wrong about my upset pick. But it was damned close.)


Growing up in Jacksonville, I always rooted for the Dawgs when they had that very large cocktail party every year.

But, with me going to, and my family toes to Florida State, I started bleeding garnet and gold.

Still like to see y'all spank them Gators. (I get a pleasure when it happens although sometimes it is better for them to face us without that loss).

I was hoping you would post a score. Since I don't have cable any longer, I miss out on a lot of college football. Kinda miss it.

Damn Bob was hitting me like I was a two-dollar whore until this post:

I've not had a visit from him since. Not only is he an asswipe, he's a coward.

The 'Dogs is OK. The 'Gators is not.
The proudest football moment of my life: Huskers kicking butt blowing out Steve Spurrier's Gators for the Nat'l Championship in the Fiesta Bowl.
Steve Spurrier: what a cry-baby.
Tom Osborne: "When you make a touch, act like you've been there before".
Dan - U of N '66 alumni - There is No Place Like Nebraska
OK, you'all can say, "thank God for THAT". {:^)

Ya might be in trouble next week, old Holtz is not going into his monday whining. Might even be a good game. I have faith in the mighty Gamecocks, they will fold in the fourth.
