Gut Rumbles

woof! woof! woof!

I had my doubts, but I believe now that my beloved Jawja Bulldogs may have a good football team this year. They handed Tennessee their asses on a plate a LOT worse than the score indicated.

It was a great game to watch. Out of the blue, (because I haven't seen him in a while) Young Jack came over to visit and we sat on the floor in front of the television. I made some popcorn and gave him a Mountain Dew. We watched the game together.

I really enjoyed that experience. Jack is playing Little League football again this year, and he LISTENS when I explain what is happening on the field. He's playing end on offense (because he can catch, after I almost killed him with many lessons that ended up with footballs hitting him square in the forehead) and playing linebacker on defense.

My biggest thrill of the day was when a Tennessee receiver caught a pass that would have been good for a first down, but a Georgia defender ripped the ball out of his hands for a fumble, which Georgia recovered. Jack almost pissed his pants. He started jumping up and down.

"Mr. Rob! Mr. Rob! That's just what you taught me and Quinton to do! KNOCK the ball out of his hands!"

"Don't you ever forget it, either," I replied. "If you're gonna play linebacker, MAKE a fumble whenever you can."

Damn. I miss having kids around the Crackerbox.

But the REALLY good news is that Georgia won and I don't have to listen to eric call me up and sing "Rocky Top" over the phone.


Tell ERIC to go fuck himself with a Krispy Kreme along with Phil Fulmer!!!! That was a great game. GO Dawgs. Roll Tide!!

:) As a devout UT fan, I had to smile when reading this. I have to hand it to you, you're more than correct! UT beat themselves IMHO, with all the penalties, and as a UT fan even I'll admit they deserved to lose!

I still hate UGA almost as much as I hate whatever f-ing team Spurrier is coaching but truth is truth and I'll admit it any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

The best team won today! There, I said it! That doesn't mean I have to like it but dammit, sometimes the truth is right there in front of your face!

Jack needs you, it's pretty interesting that he showed on this day of all days.

As a Gator fan I've never dreaded a Georgia game as much as the one that is a few weeks away; not even when you had Hershel Walker. Even though I live just a few minutes away from the stadium, I think I'll skip this one. I'm not a coward I just have a lot to do like shopping or playing golf or something. Anyway, I already have my excuse: injuries, yeah our best players are hurt; yeah that's the ticket.
