Random Funny Items

A couple of random things have made me laugh the past couple of days:

1. Rubie's Grade A text from last night regarding Pitino and the Crew's imploding season

2. Orson Swindle calling Bill Simmons a pussy on the EDSBS live show last night. That whole thing was high comedy. Nothing like a bunch of drunk Cajuns calling into the internet to rant and rave.

3. Top 10 Big (11) Football Games of 2008 - soooo, the BTN has to fill up a lot of dead air in the summer so they produced a 1/2 hour show on the Top 10 games from 2008 in the Big 11. #9 was none other than Wisconsin-Caly Poly. Nothing like needing two missed PATs to get into overtime versus a D-1AA opponent and then another missed PAT to win in OT.

4. Watching old SEC games on CSTV today. They broke away from the 2004 Tennessee-Notre Dame for an update from Tim Brando on the Arkansas-South Carolina game. Quote from Brando: "For some reason, Matt Jones threw into triple coverage, leading to an interception that ended the Hogs' comeback bid." Um, Tim, hindsight provides a very good reason: cocaine, lots and lots of cocaine.

5. Uncle Rico at Walter's on Tuesday. This dude was rocking feathered hair, sideburns, a fu manchu, a highligher yellow tank top and cut-off jean shorts. He also played Boston and Van Halen on the jukebox.

Re: #5. You neglected to mention that the Daisy Dukes were hiked above his navel region, and he was showing a good six inches of leg above the knee. Class all the way.

Thank you for writing this post, which is comprised of nothing but inside jokes. My life is much fuller now.

Thanks for the college football post D3!

So how do you guys think the Lane Kiffin experiment in Tennessee is going to work out?
