Looking at i stumbled upon this mildly offensive valentine that im not one hundred percent was sumbitted by donnie. And by the way donnie if you have thought about it yet (although that is a rare possibility) this might be a way to lock up your number one girl with pretty hair.

The truth behind "The Murph"


Lhasa Apso / Poodle Hybrid

The Lhasa-Poo is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Lhasa Apso and the Poodle.

Hopefully this clears up any further confusion.

Livin' the Dream: 96-83

Who's "livin' the dream" this week? Why, it's the entire Georgia basketball team.

This is all they did on Saturday en route to a 96-83 win over Gonzaga on Saturday:

Levi Stukes: 25 points.
Sundiata Gaines: 21 points, 8 rebounds, 6 steals, 5 assists and just 4 turnovers.
Mike Mercer: 19 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists.
Rick Majerus said of Steve Newman: "He's got the body of a rec league player and the heart of a lion."

Here's what Mark Few had to say: “Georgia is a really good team. They are an NCAA Tournament team. The other Georgia teams we’ve played have been good too. This team has no weaknesses.”

And Mercer did this:

Dobbs Needs To Improve Toughness? No Way!

David Ching has a nice little rundown of all the guys who redshirted this year in the Columbus Ledger-Inquirer today, with comments from the starters. A couple of highlights:


Projected 2007 position: Safety

Height/Weight: 6-2/192

Teammate's comments: "Typical Georgia safety, I guess. The big-hitting safety that everybody says we're missing this year. He has learned the game extremely fast, the playbook. He can answer the questions that coach asks that most guys at that point don't usually know. He's learned the package extremely well." ­ Georgia safety Tra Battle


Projected 2007 position: Defensive end

Height/Weight: 6-2/270

Teammate's comments: "Great upside. A little quiet, needs to get more of a football mentality, a little more toughness. He has it, but he's a nice guy too, though. When he gets some of that jerk in him, then it's a wrap." ­ Defensive tackle Ray Gant


Projected 2007 position: Safety

Height/Weight: 6-2/188

Teammate's comments: "Reshad's just a natural athlete. Anytime the ball's in the air, he goes up to get it. He may not know the playbook and the scheme as well as (Quintin) Banks, but athletic-wise, he's with the best of us as far as covering and ball skills. He's just a natural at it, you can really tell." ­ Georgia safety Tra Battle


Projected 2007 position: Defensive end

Height/Weight: 6-6/272

Teammate's comments: "Perfect frame, perfect size. Big, strong, hard worker. He'll probably be an all-American before he leaves." ­ Defensive end Quentin Moses

Peachtree Ridge: Who Knew?

While watching the grand finale of the state high school semifinals at the Georgia Dome last weekend, Peachtree Ridge's 13-7 win over Warner Robins, two players stood out to me in particular. Neither one was the more highly publicized Cameron Heyward.

The first was Peachtree Ridge quarterback Zack Graham. He stands about 6'4" or 6'5", has a very strong arm, and can really move around. The most impressive thing about him was that he seemed to be a quarterback first, a runner second. And when he did run, he looked like a poor man's Vince Young (which is a huge compliment).

After a little more research, I found that he is a two-star quarterback prospect who is a highly rated basketball player as well. It's hard to tell whether schools have offered him for football or basketball, so maybe somebody can help me out there. Georgia has given him an offer, and I think it's for basketball. It was a little surprising to see him rated so low, so maybe I just saw him have the game of his life, and he hasn't really flown under the radar the way I first thought.

I tell you that to tell you this. The other player who impressed me was Peachtree Ridge's kicker, one of the best high school kickers/punters I've seen since Beers and the Dotsons were booting balls out of Memorial Stadium.

So it definitely came as a shock when I came across an Athens Banner-Herald column by The Greatest Bulldog Ever, Dan Magill, which identified that kicker as none other than Drew Butler, the son of The Greatest Collegiate Kicker Of All Time, Kevin Butler.

Anyway, I hope this kid gets preferred walk-on status at Georgia and follows in his father's footsteps. It would be a great story.

And here's another little tidbit from the article.

Drew wears No. 13 on his jersey. His dad wore No. 5 at Georgia and No. 6 with the Bears.

In an interview with Kevin Monday, I asked him why Drew wore No. 13, and he replied:

"My dad (Joseph Butler) wore No. 13 when he was a halfback at Benedictine Prep in Savannah.

The Multiple Occasion Celebration

Today is quite a significant day in our lives. It's the last day of classes for the first semester; tomorrow is reading day. Today is also the eve of Gannam Day; tomorrow is Fleming's first Gannam Day as a staff member of Benedictine. These things, along with the fact that both Duke and UGA only have one loss a piece call for a celebration. So tonight at #8 Tanyard (not 37 Tanyard), there will be a low country boil at 8 o'clock sharp. Drinks start at 8 and food will be served at about 8:30 after which some of us or maybe one of us will leave for Firehouse while the rest of us will stay to enjoy South Park. The only requirement for entrance is attire and attitude. Attire is class A. Attitude is "girls or bust into overdrive". No more big talking....

Livin' the Dream: One Last Thank-You

I hate to keep banging on Reggie Ball, but... wait a minute, no I don't.

Did you really think I could let the regular season end without featuring the orchestrator of Georgia's season-ending victory and Wake Forest's ACC championship at least once?

On Saturday, Ball completed 8 passes for 117 yards to Calvin Johnson. He completed 1 pass for 12 yards to everybody else. That's 15 of 51 for 171 yards, 0 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in the two biggest games of his career. If that doesn't warrant a Lee Corso "Yo," then I don't know what does.

The performance literally left Philip Wheeler and Joe Anoai in tears.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2004 Champs Sports Bowl MVP.
