Five at 10,

I apologize for beating this horse but the documentary was just crud. Is that too strong for family based? I know "stink pants" is sort of the industry standard in these discussions but I wnated to express something stinkier.

How can a group with the collective talent level at ESPN 30 by 30 have decided that production was worthy of their efforts? In my humble (yet always right) opinion the biggest failure was their angle for the story. Sure the rivalry is crazy and should not be ignored. The fierce rivalry is the back drop for the real story.

The story, however, is everyone coming together after the storm and working together as human beings and Alabamanians. The story is not anything to do with that nutjob that had "too much "Bama" in him." Oh, if this were not family based ...

fünf auf zehn,

What is this stipend money supposed to be used for by the student athletes? Also, what is permissible? Here's saying if there is a loophole that allows a student athlete to invest the stipend to create larger dividends Harvard and/or Silicon Valley Universities win the BCS Championship within 5 years.

Can you imagine schools recruiting with their student athlete's money managment portfolio to gain an advantage? As mercenary as the system is, I can. What's that Coach Miles? You don't know a Bernie Madoff? Oh, you knew him as Bernard?

Any time Weena and tuckus appear in the same sentence it's going to be an alright day. I'm selling Tebow ... period. His star has only faded since graduating and yesterday's rally moment will become a memory of what could have been if only the NFL would embrace the "spread offense." The real question is what do with the profits from the sale? As of this morning, I'm torn between: buying Cammie Cam Juice futures and letting it roll over and ride on LSU plus the points (no matter how many) from now until BCS Championship.

It was one of those weekends. Auburn set a record for whoopins'. Seriously, they got beat like they owed LSU money. Normally, I become a raging maniac while Auburn is losing. Nothing but stunned silence and awe. Yes, awe.
MSU last second Hail Mary to knock off a BCS Contender Wisconsin. Another powerhouse is brought down by "Sneaky" Tubberville; (Gambler my tuckus! He is a dang sorcerer!) Another WS home run record is added. (Hey, Ron Washington! Ever thought of pitching around the land mass MVP?) Dolphins Stink! Even Reggie Bush (who knows a tad about stinking) says so. Congratulations Mr. Luck! South Beach welcomes you! Tebow is the consummate Tebow. Who knew? (Consummate? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.) The Saints come stomping in. Wow! Anyone think that wasn't a little message to Peyton? That had to be like watching your little brother get his tail handed to him while 5 of his buddies held you down. Something tells me the Manning family love for the Saints is over.

I wanted to comment upon the last question and answer. It was from Jordan Rules and thus, by definition, baited me to respond. The question was interesting. It was not the hoohah about LeBron and Jordan that was interesting. In my mind it was how the topic also related back to the question I missed earlier this week about the Red Sox hijinx.

Sorry about that. I actually had to work. BTW I just read 5, 5 @10's in 10 minutes. Freaky! Any wayhay, the idea that I have to dress a certain way, speak with intelligence and reserve my comments (or at least make sure my personal opinions are not attributed to an organization) is part of life. Everyone's life.

Not eating fried chicken, not playing video games and not drinking beer at my job is expected. They don't even have to state it is prohibited in the employee manual. I do not make multi-millions but that is not the point. The point is respect for an employer or a client (customer). The point is there are work hours and play hours.

Have you seen how most professional athletes spend their "play hours?" Is that life so difficult that they cannot at least pretend the word "professional" means they should act professional at their chosen profession? While I concede we only hear about the off-the-field train wrecks, you must also concede the "wrecks" are ridiculous! It defies logic such talented people waste their opportunities with such nonsense. Their selfishness disgusts most hard working people and creates the idea for impressionable children that excess, and impunity are the measure of talent.

Count me out. I will always love my teams but you can keep the players, owners, commissioners, etc. Oh, and LeBron told me to tell you, "Jordan called. He said, he doesn't rule and you should seek "professional" help." See what I did there?

I know I did not ask any of these questions in time for the mailbag but alas, I have some stuff to do. In no particular order, 5 questions in 10 words or less: How are the Dolphins possibly ranked that high? Potential World Series matchups better without Phillies? Anything better than back-to-back thrashings of the Gators? You mentioned the Yankees. They move to Tennessee? Since when does pretend Al talk about anyone besides Ditka?

I'll take UT by 7. Overtime win where UT scores and UGA does not.

Really, Hank? Your a politician now? Do I need more political advice from you I do not already get/ignore from U2 and R.E.M.? If Hank, Jr. wants to wax poetic he should just keep to "We say grace and we say Ma'am, if you ain't into that we don't give a (dang)" Although, this does beg the question "If he returns to the "godd grace" of ESPN has he proved empirically a country boy can survive? Hey-oh!!

No way AJ Burnett has more tats than Jesse James. Also, would the real AJ Burnett please stand up? There is no way that was him pitching last night.

I have a potential solution to the 3 Tiger pile up in the SEC. Maybe we can convince Mizzou to change its name to the Fighting Wal-Marts. Thoughts?

I will NEVER root for the Yankees! I will dress in Crimson, hug Al from Dadeville and yell Roll Tide until I lose my voice before I root for the Yankees. I will paint my face that far less manly blue and orange worn down in Gainesville, teach Muschamp what "padawan" means and do the Gator chomp until my arms fall off before I would root for the Yankees. I would scoop up after UGA; I would tell Les Miles he is a "genius;" I would change my son's name to "Joker;" I would agree to pick up the Ol' Ball Coach's bar tab for the year; and otherwise sell everything I have and donate it to any of the SEC Schools other than Auburn (Except Vandy. Yeah, they need my money) before I would root for the Yankees!

Why, you may ask? What is the difference? The SEC is about rivalry. Heated rivalry. Sometimes maniacal rivalry that goes back generations. The world versus the Yankees is about Good versus pure (bleeping) EVIL!

Am I the only one who thinks it is interesting the Atlanta Braves f/k/a "The Boston Braves" and the Boston Red Sox n/k/a "the bane of my miserable existence" both stink like Terrence Cody's sweat socks?

I guess it is a good sign I'm not so sad I forgot to hack on Alabama.
