Johnny Napalm for Prez

To take a break from boring shit and to spread good news about real world stuff, I am pleased to announce to you that a new Guitar Hero is coming out.

Guitar Hero Encore: Rock the 80s is set to be released the middle of next month and will feature such 80s songs as: Asia's "Heat of the moment", Flock of Seagulls' "I Ran (So far away)", and Eddie Money's "Shaken" as well as many other monster ballads. Whether your an amatuer Guitarist, a novice Hero or just interested in wasting about 30- 40 hours a week, I would recommend enhancing your life by picking this game up.

Best Finish Ever?

Some of you have probably already seen this but it reminded me why Schlabach is one of my favorite writers and how college football is the greatest thing in the world.

Vol's #1 Receiver?

I just happen to be combing the national board and came across an interesting thread of posts on the front page entitled: "Tennessee Receiver Kenny O'Neal." Upon further reading some people think Kenny maybe the Vol's go to guy this season. His attitude and character issues are also brought up and from what several people say it seems he has grown up a lot in the past year or so. Many of the posters seem to think the world of his potential. However they also knock him for his pass catching ability or lack thereof. All and all it's nice to see. I hope he scores a lot of touchdowns this year, as long as they're not against CWM's soft zone defense October 6th on the banks of the Tennessee River. God I can't wait. I have a good feeling about that one based on what happened this past season.

Here's the link to the thread:

The Price is not Right

As all of you know Georgia's baseball team was significantly bad this year. However, tonight marked the one year anniversary of the 2006 Athens Regional Championship game in which the Bulldogs defeated Florida State. I hope that some of you were able to catch the 2007 Nashville Regional Championship game between Michigan and Vanderbilt on CSS. Though I was rooting for Vandy, the game reassured my belief that meaningful baseball is hard to beat. The game was full of tremendous plays from both teams. Vandy scored twice in the bottom half of the 8th to tie the game at 3. The game would go into extra innings after Michigan's second baseman made a diving catch for the 2nd out of the 9th to halt a great scoring chance for the Dores. In the top of the 10th with 1 out, a seldom used pinch-hitter for Michigan took a 3-1 fastball over the fence for his second career home run and a 4-3 lead. The home run came off of National Player of the year David Price who was making his first relief appearance of the year. With one out and the bases empty in the bottom of the 10th, Michigan's right fielder made a home run saving catch off the bat of Vanderbilt's Pedro Alvarez that secured the lead and help save the game for Michigan. Sorry for summarizing the game but I thought it was one of the finer baseball games I have ever seen. Georgia not being in the tourney takes a lot of the fun out of it for me. Some don't like aluminum bats, two-way players, the DH, diminishing the regular season, or baseball in February. But the brackets, cross-sectional match ups, passion, effort, strategy, and do or die scenarios are unmatched and makes College Baseball in June great.

Greatest Ejection Ever

Lou Piniella was pretty impressive in getting tossed from today's Braves-Cubs game, but the manager of the Mississippi Braves was able to do him one better. This is miles ahead of any ejection I've ever seen, including last year's classic Asheville Tourists clip.

Obviously, this was all planned in advance and he was just waiting for a bad call, but does this happen to remind anyone else of the time Georgia Costanza tried to get fired by the Yankees?
