Can he catch a football?

I am not a track and field guy.  I watch it when it is on because Ms. The Dean threw hammer and shot in college and she still knows a couple of folks in the sports.  However, the Dawgs are making noise this year in the Indoor season.

Below is a clip from a recent meet in Arkansas.  Seriously, if you don’t care anything about track, just skip to about 4:10 and watch Torrin Lawrence for the Dawgs run.  A sight to behold. He catches Florida’s Calvin Smith, Jr. (Smith was an Olympic team qualifier in the 4X400, but didn’t get slotted to run).

Go Dawgs!

    Holy crap! You really have to watch the whole thing to truly appreciate what Lawrence did. Florida had some talent in the first three legs and the Dawgs did great to keep pace. Buy Lawrence looked as if he was simply walking down Smith, caught up, waited for his moment just long enough to make you think he was gassed and then turned on the afterburners.

    Well, these are interesting thoughts. I think they are true. However, everything is
    relative and ambiguous to my mind.

A Georgia Dawg in the Mid-West alone with his thoughts.

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.
