Tom Fornelli’s “The Evolution Of The Tennessee Fan” is worth your time. Totally.

got nothing Senator.

I wish you guys would quit complaining to me about CBS. (I don’t mean you, Moe.) I can only control what I post here. If you have a continuing problem accessing their site, maybe you should contact them.
But it is so much easier to contact you. And unlike CBS you actually respond 🙂
Damn it… I knew I was doing something wrong. 😉
If Sen. was on CBS, Uncle Verne would probably call you Rep. Bluetartsy or something like that.
Try studying Comcast’s methods. They seem to have this whole customer service thing down to a science.
Yeah, they have a way of making you feel stupid when you call to report problems and they put you on hold while they “Write up a ticket”. This after you’ve given them everything about yourself for ID while they are sitting in front of a computer that has the info.
It’s very similar to experiencing changing your bank account number.
I have resorted to using the Firefox developer tools to copy the original URL and paste it into a new tab. For those who are so inclined, you can right-click on the link in Firefox, select “Inspect Element,” copy the text in the “href” attribute, open a new tab, and then paste the URL there.
I’m not having the problem, even when I click from the site. But thanks for the info.
You’re welcome. It’s hit or miss for those of us outside the blogger arena. The first time I clicked the link today it took me to the CBS home page. I’ve clicked it a bunch of times since then, and it works just fine roughly 90% of the time. Very strange.
It really is.
The first time I clicked onto it, one Tenn video of the fan running onto the field was all that posted. Got off and reclicked to get all pictures and videos.
Just as a refresher I looked up ‘the circle of Vol’ in my anatomy and physiology textbooks.
‘A round orifice located in the male between the insertion of the scrotum and the tip of the coccyx and surrounded by gluteus on both sides. Easily collapsible and occasionally distended with a substance known as ‘Vol’, hence ‘circle of Vol’. Occasionally used to park objects, hence Elton ‘Vol’ John. And recently implicated in climate change, hence ‘bovine ‘vol’ methane eruptions’. To Tennessee football fans this orifice is playfully known as a ‘5th quarter volicious distraction’ and results in frequent visits to the ED for object removal, creams, stitches, and steroids. Gives Rocky Top a whole new meaning and may explain Sargent Carter’s choice of plaid sport-coats.
The circle of Vol is where UT fans insert the hose to drink wine!
I am surprised to see “evolution” and Tennessee fan used in the same sentence
mikebozo..When Darwin was traveling to the Galapogos,(where history has wrongly assigned the inspiration for his theory), he had a layover in Knoxville. That’s where the ball really got rolling. The Galapogos were a twisted valadation of what Charles observed there in the foothills of the Smokies.
His original work, “Depletion of the Orange Species; Unnatural Selection in a Limited Gene Pool”, is lost because a UT librarian sent the only copy to the swim team coach.
What is when Pogo and his twin possum get orders out of the Okefenokee to sign on as ANZAC mercenaries for the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign?
Did anyone see #10 on that list?!? Distasteful, yet brilliant ploy by K State band. Comedy Gold!
They thought the Jayhawks found it tasteful.
The Tenn collage missed the Tenn grad school’s anal intoxication method perfected by Pikes who used tubes instead of the original “ole bottle up the ass’.
That kid in the orange plaid jumper says Butch has to go. No championships in his lifetime.
