From the cornfield – back to the grindstone

Well, that was fun.  I got to see Jeff Francoeur’s last game with the Braves,

saw much buffalo,



and some Grand Tetons.  No, not those, you freaks, these



Also, Brad, who is bad and nationwide, nearly got us ran out of a local beverage establishment by asking the bartender “How’s your momma and them?”  Seriously.  The guy stepped back, asked if he knew us, and after delivering our orders, stood at the other end of the bar talking to the regulars and glancing back our way.  Maybe it was our neatly cropped hair, sort of an anti-“Uneasy Rider” thing.  We decided that our mullet to head ratio was too low for that part of Wyoming and headed on into Yellowstone.

America is a wide and varied place.  In Yellowstone, I saw Georgia Bulldogs, Idaho Vandals, Montana Grizzlies, Texas Longhorns, Villanova Wildcats, University of North Florida Ospreys, Tennessee Volunteers, Washington Huskies, Wyoming Cowboys, Stanford Trees, Alabama Crimson Tide, UCLA Bruins, Colorado Buffaloes, Oklahoma Sooners, Rochester Tech Tigers, Wisconsin Badgers, Michigan State Spartans, Tulane Green Wave, LSU Tigers, UNC Tar Heels, Arizona Wildcats, and Tim Tebow Worshipers.  Plus, we have a lot of land.

Finally, I scored the coveted behind the scenes tour of Yellowstone, hanging with the paisans late one evening in their accommodations.  Think “Wet Hot American Summer,” but at night without men getting married. And less Heroin. I am told a good time was had by all.

I’ll be back to football after rehab.

    I ran across a fellow Dawg in an electronics shop in Adelaide. We were both wearing G caps and were equally astounded to run into one another.

    I was surprised how many UGA people I saw that lived and worked in Denver and Yellowstone. Of course, it is a much longer drive to Adelaide for me.
    Go Dawgs!

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.
