Ever had actual food poisoning? Probably the worst I have ever felt in my life.

When I was in high school we had an exchange student from Brazil who was the kicker on our team. Reportedly Coach Cooper was at a game or two of ours to check him out. Didn't pan out though. He went back home for school.

When the playoff was announced a few years ago, I had a discussion with some of my coworkers who are SEC fans SEC fans (cause we don't pick teams here, we just root for whoever ES(EC)PN tells us to).  They actually believe that ESPN drools over the SEC the way they do because they are heads and shoulders above other conferences...  They were completely oblivious to the fact that ESPN has a $5 billion stake in the SEC network and rights to all the playoff games...  What happens when more than one SEC team gets in the playoff?  ESPN makes more money...  Sadly that is what controls college football these days, not the love of the game...

I've got Staff Duty on Saturday, so I'll hopefully be able to watch the game at the barracks desk... otherwise I might be trying to stream it from somewhere...

Quaker Steak and Lube for best wings. Hooters were pretty good, but that was in Colorado last time I had them.

I live in Colorado (for a few more weeks) and was told you have to transfer your title to Ohio to get plates from there. I plan to do that when my CO plates expire in December.

I wonder if I could get him to come talk to my unit here in Colorado...

Remember, a $2.5B deal with the SEC and a major stake in the SEC Network has nothing to do with why ESPN drools all over them.  It's obviously because they are superior to every other conference, including those in the CFL and NFL.
