Corso Beats his Wife...

That is the exact phrase that I once saw on a sign behind the Gameday guys when they were broadcasting live from Gainesville one morning during my college years. Greatest sign ever.

As I've said before, I won't be in Gainesville tommorow. Do you know who else won't be there? The Gameday crew. That's right, the biggest conference matchup of the young season isn't getting top billing from the folks at ESPN. Instead they've decided to go to Boston for the FSU-BC showdown. Great job guys. I'm glad that we're going to get in depth coverae of this long and storied ACC rivalry instead of the annual tussle between the Vols and Gators. I guess If you've covered one Florida-Tennessee game then you've pretty mcuh seen all there is to see. I guarantee you that schmuck pencil salesman Lee Corso was behind this. Seriously, that's his other job. He's a pencil salesman for Dixon-Ticonderoga. Could I even make something that ridiculous up? Of course I could, but I'm not.

I'm out of here for a few days. I'll try and get something up on Monday night , but it's alot more likely that I'll post again on Tuesday. Unless of course I'm locked up in some Bahamian prison.

Go Gators.

One of the best sports memories of my life is walking right by the GameDay set with one Jeremy Flantzer (ngs) before the Florida/Cousin Bangers game 4 years ago (Jerry, it was 4 right?)

And? How can you not follow that up? Is it just a great memory because you Jerry were so in love back then or is there something more to the story?

Oh yeah, congrats on the nuptials.

Having just had a three beer lunch, I cannot type all the good times we had that weekend, but 9/11 did allow us to catch an absurd game in an unreal environment, too bad Flexy Rexy was killed by the lackluster OL play...we stayed with the younger brother of a friend of ours, and these guys brought it for 72 hours...though we legitimately had to talk one guy out of killing someone after the loss.

And Jerry and I love each other (ngs).

The loss sucked. The weekend was one of the better that I ever experienced from "pageantry of college football" standpoint.
