If you miss Uncle Verne, know that his heart remains in the right place ($$).
Nancy [Verne’s wife] and I attended our first two SEC games since retirement last October — Missouri at Alabama in Tuscaloosa and Georgia-Florida in Jacksonville. I remained absent during the 2017 season in order to not be a distraction to Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson. Gary asked me last year how I spent my Saturdays. ‘I’m like millions of other college football fans,’ I said. ‘I put my feet up on the coffee table, turn on the telecast, and scream at the announcers.’ [Emphasis added.]
Except for the Tuscaloosa and distraction parts, I can say pretty much the same thing for myself.
