The difference between pumped in noise and the real thing

Since I’m feeling musical today, here’s my favorite example of real juice, courtesy of Mr. Westerdawg.

Teenage wasteland, my ass.

Thursday morning buffet

The pickings are a little slim today.  But spring practice gets underway!

  • A feature, not a bug for Andy Staples:  “Sometime between five and 10 years from now, most of us will watch our sports in 3-D, and we’ll wonder why anyone bothers to actually attend the games.” Sigh.
  • Matt Hinton shows again what a bunch of BS 40 times tend to be.
  • Factoid of the day #1“The 2009 AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl (Georgia 44, Texas A&M 20) gave ESPN2 its highest- rated and most-viewed bowl game ever, averaging 2,334,000 households; 3,276,000 viewers; and a 2.4 rating.” Just think what those numbers might have been if the game had been broadcast in 3-D!
  • Factoid of the day #2“Back in 1951, Frank Branch completed 60 percent of his passing attempts (24-of-40). No Mississippi State quarterback has been that accurate since.”
  • With exposure comes wisdom – Guy Morriss hangs up on AP reporter calling to inquire about newspaper-theft story.  So much for being proud.
  • The Orlando Sentinel indulges in a little more of that Urban Meyer, molder of quarterbacks meme.
  • I’m not sure that Mark Richt deserves credit for this, but add Ole Miss’ Tyrone Nix to the ranks of SEC defensive coordinators getting big raises.
  • Speaking of Ole Miss, how ’bout the Rebels making an offer to Ralph David Abernathy IV?  The times, they are a-changing…

Because you’re mine…

Off topic, I know.  But a good cause married to one of the greatest howling-at-the-moon songs of all time – how bad could it be?

Also, Chrissie Hynde.
