Happy Homecoming week, Tiger fans!

If football season is the happiest time of the year (and it clearly is), then Homecoming weekend is peak happiness period.  It’s like Christmas morning stuffed in a Thanksgiving turkey, topped with a pile of Halloween candy, blown up with a bunch of fireworks, then drowned in a giant bucket of Cinqo de Mayo margaritas.  And so on, with some pomping added.  #FOOTBALL!! #Homecoming  #GoldPants? #America

This Saturday, our beloved Tigers host the Gators from Florida.  Kickoff is at 6:30 pm.  We’ll be hosting long lost friends and relatives from near and far, so are catering.  Dickey’s BBQ is bringing a bunch of meat and some sides, food will arrive around 3:00.  If interested in bringing something, which certainly isn’t necessary, appetizers or desserts are probably the items of choice.  Or a turkey stuffed with Christmas presents and soaked in tequila.  I’ll be there all day, so arrive when you will.

Florida is pretty good.  But I seem to recall someone pointing out last week that Mizzou would beat the roosters, UGa would get beat, and all would be well.  The all well continues this week, as the Tigers continue confounding the Gators then head to Georgia to beat up a bulldog.  It’s a lock.

Happy homecoming.  Go Tigers.  #Chomp  and on a side note, screw ku.

Rooster Breakfast

without comments

Happy Thursday, football fans,

Our beloved Tigers host the Gamecocks from South Carolina this weekend, kickoff is again at the awful time of 11:00 a.m.  That means breakfast tailgating, which isn’t all bad, except that no one shows up.  We’ll be bringing some biscuits and gravy and some drinks to warm your blood.

I was in Colorado last weekend, so only watched the first three drives of the game.  So, as far as I know, we won 7-0.  Hooray Tigers!  (Alternatively, sorry about not watching the rest, thereby letting our beloved Tigers down.  My bad, as the kids say.)

Lockily, it all turns our way this week.  UGa will get beat by Bama, we’ll win out from here, see you in ATL for the 3rd straight year, suckers.  Just the way we Drew it up.

Go Tigers, kill the roosters and eat them for breakfast before the game is even played and despite the fact that roosters are probably gamey or something, I don’t know.  on a side note, screw ku.
