It’s Great, to Beat, the Florida Gators

without comments

6-0, 6-0, 6-0! Some very wise person predicted a 14-0 season this (every) year.  The same very wise person predicted a #14 ranking after Mizzou beat Georgia.  I now predict I’ll win the lottery one day this month (no point being too specific with that one, anytime this month will be fine).

This Saturday, our beloved Tigers take on the Florida Gators.  My first experience with Gator fan came years ago in a sports bar in San Antonio, where some, um, what’s the word, jackass ran around the bar incessantly chanting “It’s Great, to be, a Florida Gator!”  I have no idea who they were playing, who won, or why I was even there (so, who was Mizzou playing?), but I remember him clearly.  Good work, you guy.  (And please withhold your comments about the people in front of us at Faurot feeling the same about us, they secretly love us.  Saw one of them in Athens, even, who made sure to ask if I was going to call Georgia “cheaters”?)

Anyway, Saturday, Tigers vs Florida.  Kickoff is scheduled for 11:21.  Tailgating will be had, but it’ll be in whatever fashion the attendees choose to contribute.  It’ll be set up before you get out of bed, I’ll hang out for a while, then Adelaide has a soccer game at 9:00, so will head to that (Go Argentina 12U!), back before kickoff sometime.

Kim is headed to California this weekend. She’ll be completing a 200-mile bike ride over the weekend, raising funds for the Young Survival Coalition.  YSC is “is the premier global organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women diagnosed with breast cancer.”  Should you be so inclined, read more about it and/or feel free to donate here.

Go Kim, 200-miles.  

Go Tigers, beat the Gators.  

and on a side note, screw ku.*
