Did that today.  Kinda cool, ain’t it?

All y’all are great for stopping by here.  My sincere thanks.

Everything good must come to an end, I’m afraid, and that includes the bowl season.  It’s time to crown a winner in the Bowl pick ’em.

Congrats to revdawg!  Hope you took your wisdom to a sports book.

For the rest of us, there’s always next September to regroup.

“Senator, Georgia is playing in the national semi-finals. What are you going to do next?”

I’m going to the Rose Bowl!

Jeez, how surreal to type that… In a season full of pinch me moments, today may very well be the pinchiest of them all.

Posting, as you no doubt can guess, will be sporadic for the next few days.  I just hope it’s equally euphoric when the dust settles.

In the meantime, you guys know the drill.  Behave, you scamps.

Ho, ho, ho, y’all.

I hope everyone out there is having the merriest of Christmases today.  Certainly the Dawgs have done their part to add to the merriment… and maybe, with a little luck, that one package they left under the tree that we can’t unwrap for another week will have something a little extra special in it.

In the meantime, in the spirit of the season, the GTP traditional musical tribute is a rotation between my two favorite Xmas songs and this year it’s Robert Earl Keen’s turn to perform.  He recorded this version of “Merry Christmas From The Family” earlier this month.

Gift Guide PSA

I just wanted to let y’all know I’ve done the first page update, adding several of your suggestions, along with another of my own.

Keep the recommendations coming!

Have we got a gift guide for you.

Unlike the Death Star, the GTP Gift Guide has gone operational.  The page link appears at the top of the blog.

I’ve seeded the page with sixteen suggestions in six categories.  You suggestions are not only welcomed, but encouraged.  Again, please follow the formatting guidelines set out on the page, largely for my convenience.  Also, your suggestion must be in the form of a gift, not just something you like.  (For example, I love Popeye’s Chicken and consider it an essential part of any fine tailgate.  But I ain’t making a gift of a 20-piece box to anyone any time soon.)

So, go ahead and dazzle us with your recommendations.  Let’s grow this sucker.
