It’s that time of year again, thankfully.

I thought about posting this last week.

Then I thought about posting it yesterday.

Then I thought about posting it tomorrow.

But fuck it, by the time you see this, I’ll be on the road headed to Charlotte and it’s the way to express in the moment how my heart embraces this stupid, silly, wonderful sport that, even with all the baggage attached to it these days, still tugs at my passions.

Thank you, Georgia football and college football, for making me feel this way.

  3. Good that you posted this. Forwarded it to my boss from the UK. She referred to it as ‘footsie’ today on a call after I mentioned the game tomorrow. What a wondrously preposterous example of the game we love. Go Dawgs.

      Ah yes. I’ve never forgotten that turn of phrase. It was filmed in November 2007, with AU smarting in the wake of the first Blackout, and Saban’s first Bama team was licking its wounds from a loss to the Looziana- Monroe Warhawks. So, an accurate enough description for when it was made.

    Not for nothing, I love Stephen Fry. Just an absolutely brilliant, kind, thoughtful, and very funny human being.

    Thanks for posting this, Senator.

    As I have said on here before. Anyone coming to this blog expecting rational thought and common sense when it comes to college football has come to the wrong place.

    I will be unsupervised at the farm, watching it on the HD TV attached to the side of the RV. Cold, cold beverages and big old bone in ribeyes. Sunday my sons and their friends are coming for the dove shoot and staying through Monday. I’ll not be back until later in the week, I’m fixing to go RangerRuss for a few days. Go Dawgs!

    VT looking like they should have since the old Beamer passed the torch.

    Nothing fancy like shooting birds and fishing for me. Just trying to save some pecans from the dang squirrels and killing time tomorrow with yard work, deck sealing, and car washing if need be. I’m just glad it’s not an 8p start, wish it was 3:30.

    I’ll be in a red shirt and silver britches in the crowd. Hoping to add to my ND and Rose Bowl moments, but will take a blowout win too.

    As I begin my pre-gaming with 2 or 3 fingers of Baileys in my coffee, the warm fuzziness I feel as I watched this wonderful video will soon slowly start to intensify into the one thing Mr. Fry neglected to mention: the burning, petty hatred I feel for Clemson. I raise my mug to each of you. Go Dawgs. Woof. Sic ‘em.
