Bin Laden in a Sleeping Bag
January 24, 2007

I am a bit confused. A former officer of our nation’s Air Force just finished telling me (indirectly) and Rusty Humphrey (directly) about his 1987 experience of supplying Mr. Bin Laden with fire arms and ammunition. He shared with all who cared to listen that he, along with some other men, flew fifteen thousand pounds of cargo that was marked, “Sleeping Bags”, into Islamabad were foot-soldiers of Bin Laden retrieved them with intentions of using said “camping gear” against the Russians. He commented that he took part in five similar missions, all to the same region and to the same people. These transactions were initiated by the American government. I’ll sleep on this one. Then again, maybe I won’t.

Has anyone else ever encountered accusations such as these?


Me, Lee, and the Florida D
January 9, 2007


It should be noted that Mr. Lee Corso consulted a certain blog that will remain nameless (SmittyCity) that prompted him to put on the Gator head for his pregame prediction of Monday night’s BCS Championship. We tried to tell them, didn’t we, Lee? I’m still not convinced that LSU isn’t the best team in the nation. But, I digress. Christopher Leak deserves every bit of recognition that he has and will receive…but if your looking for the true M.V.P. of the win…look no further than the Gator defense. Those boys embarrassed the best offense in the nation with nasty pressure all night from the front and a secondary that Meyer should bronze and put on his coffee table. Troy Smith and Jimmy Tressel couldn’t stick their finger in their ear straight. Listen to me, when your a blocked punt away from going undefeated in the tenacious SEC, you can play the game. I can’t understand why the predictions were so lopsided. Granted, if you play that game next week, Florida doesn’t win by thirty again. But you must give credit where credit is due, Florida was flawless on both sides of the ball this evening. The offense did as it pleased and the defense exposed Troy Smith’s panties. A pink thong, I believe.
OSU, averaging over 400 total yards per game during the regular season, put up 82 tonight, with 1 third down conversion and 2 turnovers. That showing is as disgraceful as it gets…and no, Teddy Ginn could not have made a significant difference. Should a 52 day layoff be considered? Should not playing anyone after September with a winning record outside of Michigan be considered? Should 6 of the past 9 title games being won by the underdog be considered? You tell me.
41 – 14 … 41 -14 … 41 -14 … 41-14 … 41-14
Can Boise State dispute Florida’s title?
Anyone see what Dallas Baker had written on his shirt during the post-game interview?
Key to the game: The Secondary.

Will Meyer now get more than Bama promised Saban?

SEC Hyperbole (maybe) & Bathroom Talk
January 6, 2007

It’s over for the SEC. After this year, you will never see another SEC team in the BCS National Championship game. Now that Saban is ready to resurrect the historic Crimson Tide, the Southeastern Conference has never been so stacked. Richt, Spurrier, Miles, Meyer, Nutt, Tubberville, Fulmer, Kentucky on the move, and now Slick Nick. No one will ever again be able to exit the SEC regular season unscathed and triumph in Atlanta, subsequently sending them to the Big Daddy. Hey, Big Ten…quit arguing with us…your not the toughest conference! You may have the old history, but we have the new muscle! (or as my man Will said, “Old and Busted…New Hotness!”). But, we’re becoming too strong. How are you suppose to make it out untouched when your getting hammered by the best athletes and the best coaches in the nation week in and week out (this is why I predict 1 loss Florida to upset the Buckeyes Monday night). Besides the dynamic coaches slowly trickling into the greatest conference on earth, it would be negligent not mention the top three quarterbacks in all of high school football who meandered into the SEC last year (Tebow, Stafford, Mustain). Simply put, the best players are following the best coaches. Try pouring your heart and soul into preparation for Urban Meyer’s Gators one week, and spend the next week recovering from your excruciating win just in time to play in Death Valley. There is too much parity…everyone is good.

And for the record-
If Smitty says a mosquito can pull a plow…don’t argue, hitch it up.

On a different note…

UK’s basketball program is stuck in reverse. Each year the Mildcats continue to lose more and more games and get fewer and fewer big name recruits. Are the fans actually at the point where they are satisfied with a 7 point win over a terrible Houston team? A Houston team that doesn’t have Clyde Drexler or Hakeem! A win may be a win at Tulsa and Georgia, but here in Lexington you have to blow out the cupcakes. Do you remember what used to happen here when we had a “down” year? We’d get beat by 1 at the buzzer in overtime to one of the best college basktball teams/programs ever. That’s acceptable, losing in the 2nd round, consistently, isn’t. Drain the TUB!!!

Although, it would be a lie to claim that I have no desire to see what it says.
