Happy anniversary, baby.

Dang, I almost forgot.  Eleven years ago to the day, I opened up the doors to this joint.

To everyone that’s stopped by, I don’t know why you came, but I deeply appreciate it all the same.  Hopefully the ride is just getting good, if you’re a Georgia fan.

Oh, and as always, thanks, dog.  I couldn’t have done it without you.  You’re my muse.

Fabris Pool results, Week Thirteen

And so, my friends, another pick ’em season comes to an end.  It wouldn’t be fitting if the last week didn’t end in a tiebreaker.  This one did.

Congrats, Biggen! Your name will be engraved on a special plaque mounted in the GTP Hall of Fame, if that ever exists one day.

As I mentioned before, there will be a bowl season pick ’em.  I should have an announcement on that in a couple of weeks or so.  Stay tuned.

It’s Thanksgiving!

And you know what that calls for here at the blog…

Enjoy the day, be grateful for friends and loved ones, savor a 10-1 record going into the Tech game and settle down for what (I hope) should be a nasty Egg Bowl tonight.

Life ain’t bad, all things considered.

About those video ads…

I brought your complaints to the attention of a very supportive um… support guy at WordPress who has taken steps to do away with those ads that have been bothering so many of you lately.

Please let me know in the comments if his efforts have worked.

By the way, the folks at WordPress are great.
