Happy Thanksgiving To All

Have not blogged much lately -- work is getting to where it interfers with the fun stuff.

I did want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you are all safe as you may be going to visit family and friends.

We will spend Thursday with Laurette's inlaws in Jackson, TN, and return to Olive Branch before leaving early Friday morning to motor to Starkvegas and the Egg Bowl.

I am a little nervous about this game. One never knows what will happen when these two teams get together, and the Dawgs have so much riding on it. Of course, this is Ole Miss' bowl game as the Rebels' record will keep them from making another football trip this year.

Then there is the distraction of the "Pillowgate" affair. Have you been reading about this? What a strange thing to happen and apparently happen twice over the season -- once in Montgomery, Alabama, and once in Tupelo. There is a picture of the marquee at the Holiday Inn Express (see Kyle Veasey's blog in Clarion-Ledger) in Starkville that reads, "Secured Clocks and Pillows." Hope that doesn't make the Rebels mad as they drive into town -- they seem to play better when they are mad.

Well, anyway it should be a good game and we can all wish for a solid MSU victory and secure a bowl bid for the Dawgs. I would like the Liberty Bowl since I live in the Memphis area. We will see.

Hope to see some of you there -- if not have a joyous holiday.

Go DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!

I'm Back

It's been a while since I have posted anything, but after my trip to Starkville this past weekend, I thought it was time to say something -- GO DAWGS!!

A glorious weekend unless you were wearing some Crimson Tide color (whatever color that is since it ranges from red to maroon).

The greatest and most expensive coach in college football brings a herd of elephants to Starkvegas to play the lowly Dawgs. Have you ever seen an elephant with its tail between its legs? That is the visual you need to think of as a whole bunch of elephants go back to Tuscaloosa and other points in Alabama. It was a sight to see.

If you have not thought about it, we are the best team in Alabama because of wins over Alabama, Auburn and UAB. We are also the defacto Iron Bowl champ because we beat both of the participants.

I just can't help but think that our beloved Dawgs are on the verge of being a really good team -- at least they play hard. We've got a good chance against Arkansas and Ole Miss. Let's hope the Bulldogs can keep up their intensity.

The Razorbacks and Rebels stand a good chance of getting Croomed (a new verb in all of our vocabularies).

GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
