Brilliant.  Upvote for you good sir.

Holy Shit - it's a Ramzy greatest hits article.  Seriously - budgeted 6 mins tops to read this, went WAY over budget when I followed ALL of the links to the previous articles and read them beginning to end.

Now off to my all time fav - the 9/11 article.  Gonna need some tissues...

Bump.

Two favorite plays from the season both involve Evan Spencer.  The TD pass in the Bama game and the attempted onside kick by Bama.  Both were awesome plays, and both times Spencer had GREAT reactions after the fact - you could see the emotions, joy, happiness, etc.  

Great summary of this season.

Stay positive, Action.  Human spirit can be amazing at times.

And, yes, when the diagnosis comes, it comes REAL HARD.  Have been there.  One day at a time.

My mother passed in Jan '14 after 18 year battle with a brain tumor - one that she wasn't supposed to survive 2 years.  She saw all four of her boy's weddings, and 11 grandchildren!

There is not a day that goes by where something - some very little thing, mostly - reminds me of mom.  Cherish these memories, and the tears.  And cherish the memories of the fight your mother put up.  Human spirit and the drive to fight through the challenges are what makes the person - and what will ultimately remind you that you will never be alone.

Many condolences to you and your family.

About 20 minutes before the big reveal, athletic director Gene Smith bounded into the living room beaming and said, “We’re in!” The entire room responded in unison:“Really?” He smiled and replied, “I have no idea.” 

Gene Smith trollin'.

At the beginning of the late block of games I sent a text to my brothers that I won't watch the Fla St game because they always piss me off. Tuned in to get a score to see this "drive". Pissed off again. Dammit Florida. Never rooting for you again.

Both Joes have or are adroitly tolerating a quarterback crisis. Both have been resilient in losses and remained stoic behind struggling offensive lines. Both are just mobile enough to not have it become a liability, but overwhelmingly both manage the fog of football acrimony with abiding grace. That leadership trait cannot be overvalued. It makes every single player on the field better.

Did you watch Cincinnati vs Toledo?  Their defense was horrible.  It is their offense that worries me.

Comment 11 Sep 2014

Thank you D11 for posting.

One of Ramzy's finest, and one that I make a point of reading every 9/11.  Special thanks to all the first responders across this country of ours.

Your sig.  Is there a pop culture reference there that I am missing, or just something that you came up with?

Don't get me wrong, it is awesome either way.  Just curious...

Thinking Natural Born Killers or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Dave Grohl is one talented dude.  Nirvana and Foo Fighters - an incredible bad ass.

On a side note, Dave and Tyler's induction speech for Rush into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame is incredible!!!  Rush + Foo Fighters - two of my all time favorite bands.

The fact that there is only one SEC team on that list (twice) proves how loaded the SEC is from Top to Bottom.

Crack open your favorite brew.

Place cast iron pan on the grill to get rippin' hot (technical term).  Sear steaks 2 min per side in the pan.  Remove steaks from the pan and place on the grill to finish according to your preferred doneness.

Don't drain the pan.  Add diced shallots and garlic for 30 seconds.  Then add 8 oz chopped shitake and 8 oz baby portobello mushrooms.  Saute.  At very end, add dry red wine and allow to reduce.  

Let steaks rest for 5-10 mins.  Crack open more favorite brews.  Enjoy.

Some (including me) have wondered in recent years whether Ohio State fans would rather beat Michigan ten years in a row or the SEC ten years in a row.

And I say, why set the bar low.  I want both!
