It is the Third Weekend in October

We are now prepared for the Great Orange Pumpkin to come down from the North to visit all the good children. As Charlie Brown awaits the arrival of….. Oops! That big Orange is Tennessee. Coach Fulmer and his band of Volunteers are making a visit to the land of Crimson! This rivalry has been going on since 1901. Alabama leads the series 44-38-7 all time. Coach Fulmer is 11-3 all time versus the Tide.

And what on Earth do my eyes see! Forty-one to Seventeen! That is 41 to 17 in Tuscaloosa. Coach Saban is now 1-0 against the Vols. Alabama now leads the series 45-38 – 7. Coach F – gets clobbered this year. See you next year, maybe! Roll Tide, Go Bama!

Purple Dragons Update

It’s all about execution. The young Warriors were on Tuesday evening. The guys played Iron-Man Flag Football again, we had no substitutes. They played great. The defense was very strong. The young guys came right out of the gate pulling flags. Four different young men pulled flags. Guys who only had one flag in our seven games pulled multiple flags in this game. I was proud of the Purple Dragons defense.

Coach Vernon was joining us on the field since we had no substitutes to manage. He helped call plays and place players. We all had a great time. The guys all knew we were putting together a full package for the opponents.

Every one of our seven ran the ball, played quarterback or tried to catch a pass. Coach B’s reverse was a smash hit. A couple of our guys are really getting prepared for the next level of football. We saw some performances that show a tremendous gain in confidence and skill since week one. We coaches have finally figured it out! The players have developed well also. Two more games to go.

Get your Chicken Now!

For those of you out there that have not experienced Chick-fil-a, you are missing a treat! The mostly in the south chain of restaurants, has a great menu. Chicken sandwiches, good milkshakes, and, a moment of silence…..Great Sweet Iced Tea!

The marketing folks of this organization want you. (My Mom also wanted you to know about this! So, I’m a Blogging! Cause Momma Said So!) Between now and November 17 they are running a contest. This allows me to combine great food and football. Go to to attempt to win. You could win a trip to the ACC, SEC or Big 12 Football Championship where each trip winner will have a chance to compete to win up to $1 million dollars and Free Chick-fil-a food for a year. (I don’t know why you would want to go to anything but the SEC championship but you have the option.)

So, get your fingers working. Chick-fil-A….they didn’t invent the Chicken, just the Chicken Sandwich. They also have some great ads. OH! And the Sweet Tea.
Auburn versus LSU
Naval Officer Ben, Katherine, Hayden, and Abigale, would like to wish you “War Eagle.” We hope you are getting to see the game this evening. We all know you and Matt will be routing for the Bengal Tigers from Baton Rouge. Should be a good one!

This should be interesting. We get to battle a couple of times over the next three weeks.

Congrats to the Tide. That was a good old fashioned butt whooping! I just love SEC football. Any given Saturday Vandy can knock off the Gamecocks. Gotta love that.

Where in Misery are y'all? I spent 5 years in Columbia.
