The Golden Nugget isn’t seeing a golden season for UGA.

The casino’s sports book posted odds on its 2017 games of the year and Georgia makes the list five times.  Unfortunately, the Dawgs are dogs in four of the five:

  • UGA vs. ND (-3)
  • UGA vs. UT (-1)
  • UGA vs. UF (-1)
  • UGA vs. Auburn (-10)
  • UGA (-2.5) vs. GT

Granted, that’s four road games, plus the Cocktail Party, and the majority are close enough to qualify as tossups, but 1-4 is still 1-4.

That being said, given recent history, the Auburn spread looks too big, methinks.

Musical palate cleanser, big band blast edition

This one popped up on the music player yesterday and it’s a real kick.  It’s from a 2008 album of Tom Waits’ covers that Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes horn player Richie “La Bamba” Rosenberg put together called Grapefruit Moon.  Entitled “Down, Down, Down”, with Southside Johnny handling vocal and harmonica duties, this sucker just flat out sizzles from the get-go.

That ought to get you going this morning.
