Kyle King interviews Jack Kingston

Last week, I mentioned Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga) is one of several members of the House of Representatives who voted against the resolution congratulating Florida on their recent BCS National Championship.  He was the only one to do so after their 2006 championship.

Kyle made the point that doing so was a ‘petty act’ and highlighted a Georgia fan’s envy of Florida’s successes both times.  I happened to disagree with him both times.

Kyle, to his credit, is a man that is willing to listen and change.  He has a terrific interview with Rep. Kingston. It makes me proud to originally hale from Georgia’s First Congressional District and have parents that have hosted fish fries for the guy.  Rep. Kingston sums up in one paragraph what I thought about the vote (and for that matter feel about Florida generally):

Congressman Kingston: When it comes to GA/FL, nothing counts but the present. Have you ever noticed that we only resurrect the “all-time” statistics when we lose the game? I might envy the NFL teams that pick up Knowshon and Stafford, but I’ll never envy anyone who wears blue and orange to black tie events.

Hells, yeah!

By the way, Kyle recants.  All is well with the world.

    One of the many reasons I am proud to be a Georgia bulldog is that I will never have to worry about embarrassing myself by wearing a blue and orange tie/cumberbun or God forbid a blue and orange tuxedo at some formal event.

    I think that is the crux of the matter to me. We get to wear red and black, they have to wear orange and blue.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
