(Auburn) Tigers Suck

without comments

Happy Friday, Tiger fans. Our beloved football team hosts Auburn on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 pm. We have volleyball Saturday morning, so will be there early to setup and then back around 2:00. Mike & Sarah Messer are taking care of food this weekend. Call Mike & Sarah for all your insurance and home loan needs.

Lee’s Chicken will be showing up around 4:00, with fried chicken (war eagle), mashed potatoes, green beans, and biscuits. If bringing stuff, bring things that complement any of that. Like a friend, they’ll probably say nice things about the food. And victory, bring plans for a victory.

On to the game, last week I correctly guaranteed the black and gold would win. Sadly, I didn’t account for the opponent’s color scheme. I’ve learned from my mistakes, though, so am going with the Tigers for your stone cold lock of the week this time. Go Tigers.

On Auburn, seriously, orange and blue as colors for Tigers? Come on. And you have a Tiger as a nickname but use an eagle for some made up reason? And scream “WAR EAGLE” at me as I’m getting off the hotel elevator in Atlanta for the SEC championship game? All of you. Every Auburn fan screamed at me as I was getting off the elevator. All in my face with their “WAR EAGLE!!@@!!@@!!@”

Auburn is silly. Boo eagle, I say, boo eagle. Go Tigers, beat the silly Tigers. On a side note, screw ku.

No Whiskey for Boilermakers

without comments

Happy Friday, Tiger Fans. Our beloved football team hosts the Boilermakers from Purdue University tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. Tailgate will start early, so you should too. Mattress By Appointment generously purchased food from Dickey’s BBQ. Meats, sides, sauces, and such should arrive around noon. You should too.

In a weird schedule quirk, the football team actually opened with 2 scrimmages, so this will be our first official game. I personally guarantee the black and gold will be victorious this time. Since hosting the Boilermakers, a good tailgate host would have beer and whiskey around to make boilermakers. Unfortunately, I have friends from college in town this weekend, so I drank all of the whiskey Wednesday night. All of it. In Columbia. There’s no more whiskey. It made for super productive Thursday though.

So, come tailgate. Eat food. See old friends and old family. Watch the Tigers win. Then tell your friends to go buy a mattress. Mattress By Appointment – not really a boldly named prostitution store. Mattress By Appointment – yes, you really need to make an appointment because I’m likely at a kid’s sporting event. Mattress By Appointment – get your Dickey’s BBQ off my mattress! Mattress by Appointment – hey, buy a mattress!

Speaking of mattresses, screw ku.

‘Cock Wings and Birthday Cake

without comments

With that kind of headline, this thing is going to write itself.

On Saturday, our beloved Tigers host the South Carolina Gamecocks in the first real game of the season. Kick off is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. We’ll have wings from CJ’s and D Rowe’s on hand, and on our hands. ¬†As normal, sides and desserts are good bringing options, if looking to bring something. Saturday is also Lydia’s birthday, so birthday cake or similar will be making an appearance as well.

Adelaide has a volleyball tournament in Jeff City, so not sure what time food will be there. Shooting for 2:00 p.m., but we conveniently know nothing about the volleyball schedule yet. Someone will be there by 2, I’m sure. You should be too.

As predicted, the Tigers treated last week’s game against the former directional school as a scrimmage. Tried lots of different things on defense especially, including letting SMS score a bunch. This week the plan is to not let SCar score at all, while our offense still goes crazy. It will be fun and good times and winning, prepare accordingly.

See you Saturday, come on out and have some (Game)Cock wings and Lydia’s birthday cake! 15-0 is still on the horizon. Speaking of the horizon, screw ku.
