Jomo, pard, lots of competition for that Texan Talent.
Ten Ring: Alabama, LSU, The USC
Number 1 got an offer from Georgia Tech yesterday. I looked for a write up here at TFP (hey, not that I'm lobbying for one) to see if I'm being redundant. The Army Combine is coming up January. This may do much to clarify the future.
Been on the road fishing (we hit'em hard) last weekend in Union Springs. This week, 80^ mostly in Fort Pierce to do more of same and some maintenance on the boat.
10 Ring, MJ's Team, eh? As much as I enjoyed the "Greyhound," James Worthy, on the run finishing a beautiful pass from Magic, I plug in the Mail Man here. The Ice Man is an inspired choice for Second Team honors.
MJ had to give a nod to Pippen, but that spot should go to Lebron. Yes sir! This leopard changes spots after two rings.
Even more upgrade, Center Wilt Chamberlaim, Sixth Man: Dr. J.
Friday night offers some furious football as Knox Catholic invades the "Eagle's Nest" hoping to stomp on some eggs, thus punching a ticket to round three.
On the Signal side, everyone know Eagles love fish, especially on Fridays. This will be an evening of thrills and chills for both sides. Can Coach Price and his brood protect their eggs to win a close game against fairly equal talent? I'm saying yes this week, Signal 31, Knox Catholic 24.
As a Tennessee fan the pick is.....wait a damn minute. The monimees are just some of the cream in the SEC.
Hershel, Bo, Big John Hannah, Joe Namath, Steve Spurrier, Johnny Majors, Al Wilson, Cam Newton, Doug Atkins???
Payton Manning will always be the #1 pick in Knoxville.
10 Ring, the .38 Special A Side with which I'm most familiar is "Rock-N-Roll Strategy." Refrain is thus...
"Got the windows down and radio up, it's a rock-n-roll strategy" That's not a strategy, at best, it's a tactic. A Mr. Microphone might have been the best strategy."
Saban, as we read, is quietly assembling his class of 2014. Some pieces of this class will fill needs and see the field quickly. I believe Saban wants most is to catch the Bear, Can't see Saban leaving that to coach a startup next year.
Now, what I can believe is Saban's agent discussing what Saban acolytes currently coaching is a fit for Texas, like a Dabo Sweeny
10 Ring, has your love for the Friday follies diminished over time? I’m thinking not.
Two weeks ago in Greenville the wind blew guns while Morgana is not a witch, it was that cold. Signal was down 22 -7 at the half with not one pass thrown. I went down to freshen up and grab some coffee for my dad. I slid under the stands for a smoke. A Mountain family of mom, dad and young son joined me. Dad said they came hoping to watch Signal dismantle the Green Devils. The weekend before Greeneville wrecked their school, South Greenevile 79-2. I said I’m glad you’re with us. I asked if anyone at Greeneville had a college offer. Dad said when they graduate then they end up in jail. I said Mister many thanks, and backed away so as to not turn my back.
While my father patiently awaited my return from half time meanders was asked by a Greeneville patron who snapped some digital shots from the top of the riser, who is that #1 at right tackle? He’s huge and he’s player. Do you know him? This of course became a pleasant conversation mitigating some of my meandering. In my defense, the coffee was hot when I got there. This reminds...Congrats on your Tigers. 10 Ring that's as good as it gets from a hater like me.
I'm thinking Signal gets by Marshall county, but I'm right ready to go down to those stocked lunker holes in Union Springs.
As for my Raiders and Vols….Strong Letter to Follow.
10 Ring is there an award for most controversial lies and drops on the PGA Tour? I propose the Woods Trophy.
Didn't expect to see you with your yellow pad at Signal Friday night. Thought you'd be somewhere where something on the line like Ooltewah. #s 1, 2, and 3 all had touchdowns. I supped recently with all three at my birthday dinner.
I skipped the Florida game to go down to a Battle reenactment. Tennessee grade F, and I don't see it getting any better. Hell, I'm even flying my Vol flag upside down. I hope Coach Davis can hold his #3 ranked 2014 recruiting class together as there be more beat downs to come.
Addenda, Best Hollywood duos...Hepburn and Tracy or the Duke and Maureen O'Hara.
Mark me down with Christie Brinkley, although, about my all time is Claudia Cardinale.
As to the hooha over the new set of Tennessee Unis, if the recent past is a guide, all wardrobe changes should wait until at least of the coach's year two of the contract. I'm not impressed with the Gray. Why not come out in Orange on Orange a bit more? The effect on me was electric. Want to mix up a bit, wear Orange Pants on the road. Now, to roll out this new product to the masses, Butch needs to find a home game he can win. Not sure what that game might be at the moment.
The only gimmick I'd like to see is 100% for 60 minutes.
Do you remember when A-Rod would swoon in the playoffs? I believe he got off the juice near the end of the regular season. Am I just imaging things?
10 Ring, kudos on the magnificent results born from massive effort by your department, yet it wasn't only your staff was it? Sales, photographers, and the print folks all deserve the full marks. The layout and editing must have been mind numbing. If there was a spelling or printing error, I did not see it. Last but not least was the outstanding choice of thematic premise pulling it all together.
Mr. Gossett's nice words for #1 are for sure appreciated. I hope the young man has the opportunity to meet Mr. Gossett's assessment.
10 Ring, glad to see Baily Lenoir get his props in the paper last. week. Made sure #1 saw that in for nothing else than to stoke the flames in his considerable belly. East Hamilton v. Signal at Signal August 23rd.
For some musical #1s: The Doors début album, Ditto Dire Straits, Van Halen's first LP, REM Mummer. Yeah, Yeah, 10 Ring there was an EP out there, but that ain't no album.
