Football is Here to Scratch What Itches

without comments

Happy football, Tiger fans!  On Saturday, the Racers from Murray State University take on our beloved Tigers.  Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 pm.  It’s going to be cold, so you should bundle up.

Like locusts, Murray State returns to Faurot Field after a 7-year absence  Or maybe they’re like an itch.  That film featured Marilyn Monroe, though, so I guess we’ll go with locusts.  Although last time we played them I’d just had my gall bladder removed, and the site of incision still itches, so perhaps they are itchy.  Anyway.

As I told you seven years ago, you can impress your football neighbors by letting them know that Murray State’s all-time leading rusher is a gentleman named Don Clayton, from Malden, Missouri.  (Go Green Wave.)  Don was my high school football coach and had a brief stint with the Patriots before a knee injury ended his career.  This year one of Murray State’s best players is a receiver from St. Louis.  I assume he’s no good, though, because anyone who follows recruiting knows we always get every kid with talent from STL.

We’re in our same spot in Lot D.  I’ll be there early to set up, then back again by 1:00 or so, I’d imagine, so come out when you will.  My folks are bringing ribs, peaches, and watermelon from the Bootheel, so bring what you will to accompany that.  Napkins, for example.  (But seriously, please don’t bring napkins.)  Ribs, beer, and football, three things that are undeniably good for you.

2013, 14-0, Go Tigers, S-E-C, S-E-C, S-E-C!  and on a side note, screw ku.
