Checking out for a little R&R

If you’re astute enough to notice I’m posting at this ungodly hour, well, that’s because I’m leaving to catch a flight out west at a just slightly less ungodly hour.  I’m squeezing in a mini-vacay with some high school buddies to celebrate one’s sixtieth birthday. I’ll be back in Atlanta Sunday evening.

I will have Internet access, so I will be able to keep an eye on things here.  Blogging may be a little limited, so behave while I’m gone, you scamps.

  1. I don’t know about you, Senator, but it’s weekends like this that make me reallize how little I appreciated my youth. If only I knew one tenth what I know now and was 25 again. Oh well, have fun.

      My oldest is 25 and after this his first year of medical school he is leaving with his friends for Italy. Catching a train through France and Germany and crossing the channel and then home. Travelers checks are passe today. Credit cards, cash and bit coins are the coins of the realm. The morning he arrives back in the USA he and those friends are helping him move to a new home. The following morning he leaves for 2 weeks to help at a summer camp for diabetic children. And then he will return to Athens to help with his Dad’s annual summer project. TriTrix MTM TL custom speakers. Kids cram a lot in when they can.

    Have a great time, Senator. If the destination is Vegas, and with your high school buddies at hand, well, one doesn’t always have to act one’s age. 🙂

    With that itinerary, it’s OK to have a Bloody Mary before take-off. It’ll help.

    “Not Vegas. Steamboat Springs.”

    At least you’re not at ground zero

    Or maybe you are

    “I was thirsty but couldn’t move to get water. Or even turn off the lights. I was panting and paranoid, sure that when the room-service waiter knocked and I didn’t answer, he’d call the police and have me arrested for being unable to handle my candy.”

    No fresh bloviation is nearly as bad as no football, but I hope you enjoy your time away.

    Well things are slowing down a bit. So, I read something I thought was interesting that I wanted to mention.

    At SEC days, CMR was asked about the impact of COA. His response…

    …we feel very good about our situation. We have certainly the cost of attendance numbers, but there’s also some things that can be done in a creative way that is well within the rules that can get us in pretty good shape on that front. So we know Georgia can do just as well as anywhere in the country as far as taking care of our players, and we don’t think it’s going to have a negative effect at all.

    Notice the comment, “creative ways”. Let’s hope this COA issue becomes a non-issue. Maybe we worried for nothing.

      Noticed that too. Awfully Evil Richt of him. And I say this as a Richt homer – if he can just get out of his own way with game management, we might just win a championship or two here in the next few years.

      • Am i understanding the implications of that statement correctly? is that a warning shot across the bow of other school’s not to go all crazy with their COA’s because they can’t outspend UGA? He is absolutely right but god what an un-Richt like thing to utter. Evil Richt …me likey.

    Senator! I return off a week on the Green River and finally scroll through all the blogs I’ve missed and find you’re also in Steamboat. I had to look around the room to make sure you weren’t here.
