Screw UK

without comments

Holy it’s Thursday already, Tiger Fans,

As you all know, Homecoming week means cold, rain on Friday night, and beating as bad a football team as we can find (I’m looking at you, Oklahoma of 2010) to play.  In longstanding tradition, this year Homecoming will be against a team wearing blue whose fans don’t really even know football exists.  Kick off against UK is at 11:00, which means early tailgate time and breakfast galore.  Come when you will, bring what you will, win Tigers.

I know almost nothing about our opponent this week, which just makes it all the easier to pretend they’re from the west, wear red socks, celebrate their vagabond history, and have regularly been on probation for illegal basketball recruiting.  Go Tigers, and on a side note, screw UK.

A is for Swag

Hello football fans,

Saturday, the Tigers get back to their winning ways when #1 Alabama comes to town.  Kick off is scheduled for 2:39, you’ll want to be in your seat on time as Gahn McGaffie runs back the opening kickoff, Oklahoma style, as Mizzou starts their upset.  We’ll be at the tailgate early, come when you will.  Jim and Jessie Yankee, of Flat Branch Home Loans and Easy PC, respectively  are taking care of the meat this tailgate, via D. Rowe’s.  Smoked wings, pulled pork, and brisket are on the menu.  Bring a side or dessert, if you like, and call Flat Branch for all your home loan needs and Easy PC for your IT issues.

At this point, we’ve all heard all we care to about the illustrious SEC and how cool they (we?) are.  Their dress, their attitude, their tailgating, etc.  In rebuttal, I present two pictures of Bama fans (courtesy of outkickthecoverage.com).

A Swag


Watch out for clashing houndstooth. Houndsteeth?

They’re not so cool.

Go Tigers, beat Bama.

Lot D for Good Times

without comments

Howdy football fans,

This weekend the Tigers take on the Commodores from Vanderbilt University.  Game time is at 6 p.m.  We’ll be tailgating again, naturally, in Lot D.  Lot D, for where the good things happen.  Not Lot G, where things happen that make me say damn.  Lot D – we’re for good times.  My folks are bringing ribs for the main fare.  Bring what you will.  I’ll be there early, I’m sure.

I haven’t looked at the schedule in a while, but know we have 3 consecutive home games.  After the win at Central Florida last week, I’m certain it’s all on track and we’re in for nothing but wins in October.

Go Tigers, beat the Dores, screw ku.
