Just tickle my balls a little, dadgumit!

I just looked up at one of the TVs in my facility and I caught a glimpse of Oprah. Only it's not just Oprah. Rather Oprah interviewing a young black man in a snazzy sweater and collared shirt combo that would surely make Geoff Burr proud. It is none other than JETS WR Lavernues Coles, presumably talking about how he was molested as a child. Either that or how Bobby Bowden sacrificed him to the media in order to keep Peter Warrick eligible and FSU's 1999 National Championship hopes alive.

Or maybe how Bobby Bowden molested him and Peter Warrick causing them such mental anguish that they had to go on shopping spree at the Tallahassee Dillard's which resulted in Coles being kicked off of FSU's football team. Now that would be a story that I'm interested in hearing.

I'll see you all in hell.

An Eckstein stat for you from the other night:

He was down 1-2 in the count...Hitters against Lidge this season in 1 and 2 counts were 2 for 59, an .034 BA.

That's pretty impressive. Something had to give between that stat and Eck's league leading number of 2 strike hits.

Free Shoes University was one of the great Spurrier quotes, along with these two gems:

"You can't spell Citrus without UT."

After a fire in the Auburn football dorms destroyed property and a large number of books. Spurrier was asked about the incident, to which he replied, "The saddest part is that most of the books hadn't even been colored in yet."

It's safe to say that Spurrier is an awesome guy.

Let's say he WAS an awesome guy.

And to be honest, not a fan of the sweaters.

You always keep me guessing Burr, though I'd never doubt your judegement on this subject.

As for Spurrier, he may protect a Qb about as well as Hildebrand protects his genitals but he's still a great quote.
