Since this weekend is the first weekend of college football, can you do your annual SEC draft. Same rules - bottom to top, teams can lose no more than 2 players (more if you do a second round again).
Back to School, Old School, School of Rock, and School Daze. The pickins were a little slim.
To paraphrase Animal House in regard to college football as we know it -- Let it go. War's over, man. The Big Five dropped the big one.
I think the maximum penalty FIFA can dish out for conduct on the pitch during a match is two years. Only match fixing or something similar can get you banned for life.
Way too many bad Super Bowls for one Rushmore. How about a Rushmore of one game wonders -- guys who played big in the Super Bowl but did little else?
The favorite old school shoe was the Starsky blue Adidas SL76. Blue with white stripes. Bad show good shoe.
For Thanksgiving dinner -- Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. I'd buy a chicken but the four of these guys could juice it up to a 20 pound turkey in no time.
To borrow the brick by brick analogy of UTK for UTC from 1-11 to now. The first brick was beating anyone with a pulse - check, second brick was playing competitively with the big three in the SoCon (Wofford, Appy, GaSo)- check, beating the big three -- check with an asterisk (bad call in the Waffle House capital of America), win a conference championship -- shared check. The next brick is a playoff win and then anything can happen. Right now Russ' mailbox looks a lot better than Butch's.
When our sons were 7 and 4 we dressed the older one up as a baseball player. We put the younger one in a white shirt and tie and he went as his agent. He kept all his candy plus got 15% of his brothers'.
Can you dust off the SEC draft that you did in the middle of last season and do one before the season starts? Same rules, worst record first, alternate between east and west, no team can lose more than three players.
Your comments about the tragedy in Boston show why you write and we can only read. Well written, well thought out. Thank you for putting so many of our thoughts into words.
