Where is Orson Charles?

I think he’s in Tampa preparing for the Outback Bowl with the rest of our boys. But after seeing that picture of the broken Independence Bowl trophy, I’m not so sure.

Killer App

Posted in Chow, Dinky Dau with tags , on Friday December 23rd, 2011 \pm\31 2:53 pm by Big Muddy Dawg

It really has come to this. A smartphone app to Bypass lines at the concession stand. And supported by the Stegeman Coliseum.

With Bypass Lane, concession lines are a thing of the past. Now you can simply place an order from your seat with your smart phone. After a text tells you it’s ready, you pick it up through a dedicated Bypass Lane or have the food delivered to your seat. No waiting. No lines.

We’ve got a game at home tonight against Furman. Somebody please try this thing out and let us know how it goes.

Man, I’d kill for an app to skip bathroom lines, too.

Richt to Pyongyang?

Posted in Dinky Dau, Fearless Leader with tags , on Monday December 19th, 2011 \am\31 3:51 am by Big Muddy Dawg

Early reports out of North Korea indicate that the Land of Darkness will be looking for a new Fearless Leader. One of the original founding members of the Axis of Evil Conference, North Korea will seek to replace a leader who served an interminably long tenure at the helm.

Citing a North Korean desire for immediate stability, sources out of College Station report that Coach Mark Richt is rumored to have interviewed for the position. While as yet unconfirmed, “insiders” have stated that the current University of Georgia head coach was seen touring downtown Pyongyang.

When asked for a statement regarding Coach Richt’s interest in replacing Kim Jong-il as North Korea’s new Fearless Leader, UGA Athletics Director Greg McGarity cryptically replied “Say what, now?”

Other possible candidates for the open position include “Hot Lips” Houlihan, that guy who stood in front of that tank in Tianamen Square and Jon Gruden. Stay tuned, folks. This could get interesting.

Tora! Tora! Tora!

Man, how many damn Tiger teams does the SEC need to have? I’m telling you, we need to even this thing out. Cats have an unfair advantage over dogs right now and it just ain’t right.

But if what’s stated by Eric Blumberg proves true, I’m glad we’ll be playing at Missouri first. It’ll be like a preemptive strike at their home. We’ll swoop in, infamously burn down their town and then be all like “What? Y’all come on over to our place next year and we’ll show you how we do it when you’re in our backyard.”

Go Dawgs!

Let’s shake on it

Posted in Dinky Dau, Fearless leader with tags , on Wednesday November 30th, 2011 \am\30 7:08 am by Big Muddy Dawg

I was looking at this photo of the post-game handshake over at the AJC and got to thinking:

First of all, I noticed that Coach Richt seems to give a firm handshake. I know he’s shaking hands with the Jowly One and all but, still, check out all the wrinkles caused by that grip.

Anyway, seems to me that Nick Saban probably also gives a firm handshake. Spurrier and Joker, too. And you just know Will Muschamp and Bobby Petrino are overcompensating squeezers. You know the type.

Oh, and Les Miles doesn’t shake hands. He’s all like:

Thanks for the paranoia!

Coach Garner, I admire you. I respect what you do and what you’ve done for our players and the University.

“If they want to throw me in jail for feeding my players, then go ahead,” he said. “Shoot, if I can get one (a violation) for feeding them, that’s pretty good.”

But when it comes to the NCAA, please, Coach Garner, no joking around. They might not get it.

OK, that aside, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope this day finds you all where you want to be, surrounded by loved ones and mounds of delicious food.

I’m prepared to set aside my hatred for Tech on this one day. And I should mention that it isn’t because I have Matthew Stafford on my fantasy football team and he’s going to need Megatron to come up big for him. Nope, that’s not the reason at all.

Go Dawgs!

I just woke up

Posted in Dinky Dau, Uninformative Information with tags , on Friday November 18th, 2011 \am\30 11:49 am by Big Muddy Dawg

Feeling a little under the weather so here are some random, completely coherent thoughts, sprung fully formed from my head:

  • We know that Matt Stafford had a little conversation with Coach Bobo after Aaron Murray broke his touchdowns in a season record. I wonder if Coach Bobo passed along any additional advice?
  • If we beat Kentucky this weekend and make it back to the Dome for the SEC Championship Game, can we get Scott Woerner to sign DVDs for every home game?
  • True story, bro.
  • There’s a place in the world whose name, when translated, means “place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as land-eater, played his flute to his loved one”. What does this have to do with Georgia football? Beats the hell out of me but I thought you guys should know.
  • Loose lips sink ships.

I can’t wait for our game tomorrow. Really. I can’t wait. I’m trying to figure out the time zone differences to know when I can call my buddy in Australia and have him tell me the results. Because, see, it’s tomorrow there now… Alright, I’m going back to bed.

Go Dawgs!

 

Quick thoughts from work

Posted in Dinky Dau, Good Feeling, You mad bro? with tags , on Monday November 14th, 2011 \am\30 7:43 am by Big Muddy Dawg

First off, don’t my employers know that if they start playing Christmas music now, by the time Santa finally shows up, all of us workers are going to be sick of it? Not only that, we’ll start to associate what is supposed to be joyous music with being stuck at work. Didn’t these guys ever read any Anthony Burgess? It’s like they’re administering the Ludovico Technique up in here.

Alright. So the first thing my Auburn coworker said to me as he walked into work was “I can’t believe you haven’t called or texted me after that whooping.” Truth be told, I probably should have because, well, he certainly deserved to be taunted after everything I had to hear from him over this past year. But I replied that my team did all my talking for me on Saturday. And, besides, all of the sports headlines following that beating have certainly continued the conversation.

He didn’t like my answer and kept goading me to at least say something disparaging about his team. I guess it might have been catharthic for him to hear me say it. But I wouldn’t give him the satisfaction. Instead, I thanked him for his team beating Sakerlina and helping to put the Dawgs in the position we’re in now. He liked that reponse even less.

Go Dawgs!

I hate Auburn

So I know you guys have all seen the Squidbillies clip where Early declares his disdain for a certain cow-related university while professing an inclination for locomotion in his lorry. Well, I admit that it’s a pretty catchy tune and it’s been stuck in my head off and on for the past week or so. As such, I decided to hack together a little something using the song as my soundtrack. It’s not much, but I’m easily amused.

I confided with a friend last night that if the Dawgs were to emerge victorious on Saturday, we should drive down to Opelika and tear down their goal posts. I’d love it if our players hid out after the game and sacked their quarterback one more time as he’s trying to get on the bus for the ride home. And I hope the SEC reviews film of our game later in the week and decides to penalize us for scoring too many points. In one quarter. I hate Auburn.

Go Dawgs!

Reinforcing stereotypes

Posted in Dinky Dau, Hate, Other People's Business with tags , on Friday November 11th, 2011 \am\30 6:46 am by Big Muddy Dawg

You know how sometimes a team will win a big game and then play poorly in their next game? Or how sometimes a team will get caught looking ahead and slip up against their current opponent? Well, if you watched last night’s game between Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech, you got to witness the Yellow Jackets fall victim to both of these scenarios.

Alright. You might be thinking, sure, beating top ten ranked Clemson may lead to a let down game. But how could Georgia Tech possibly be looking ahead to Duke when they are playing Virginia Tech? If they’re anything like their fans, Tech wasn’t looking ahead to the Duke game.

I’m so excited about Skyrim I literally don’t even care.

They were looking ahead to a video game:

Release date as shown in the above image: 11.11.11. Today. As they say, “LOL”.
