09-27-08: UGA v ALABAMA... (Tentative) Tailgating Plan

1: Plan for Saturday

My parents are staying at the Holiday Inn Express this weekend, and I thought we could just tailgate there. I could park my truck there Friday night and leave the coolers and the grill there all night. I've got enough beer for everyone leftover from my dad's party, so if you were planning on bringing beer, then bring some liquor that we can shoot. I am going to get a few hamburgers and hot dogs but feel free to bring anything else you want to throw on the grill. Holland, you are responsible for the music. If anyone can think of a better place on campus where we should tailgate or can come up with an argument for why we should just tailgate in the parking lot of my apartment, then I am all ears. However, don't use the bathroom thing because we have my parents' room for that.

2: My take on the Blackout

Why not? CMR knows what he's doing. It will look cool. Plus, I look good in black.

Above: Mike- I know you wanted to be able to say that you were at the only "Blackout" ever, but just shut up and wear some black.

3: Prediction(s) for this weekend

UGA 10 - BAMA 6
We will see Rick a lot more this weekend than we did GSU weekend.
Murray will eat pizza more than once.
Rick and Larry make up.
McCarthy drops a new slang term that no one has heard in a while.
Holland gets naked.
P Lowe puts on for his city.

We can only hope things get this crazy this weekend. 10-6.

Gameday: Arizona State

I don't like our chances for 2 reasons and no it's not Willie's soft zone defense (although in all seriousness that does concern me)- 1) those ASU guys practice against a cactus; 2) did you see what Sparky did to the Iowa team bus?

Happy Weekend

75 minutes of African American studies and a HACE test with Moorman until my weekend begins. Here's to hoping for a big win this weekend at ASU...

Below: Rick before he gets a good tan on his ASU trip.

And after we win...

I hope to celebrate in a similar manner this weekend.

6 Down

Sept. 17 marks the unofficial halfway point to St. Patrick's Day.

Erin Go Bragh!

On an unrelated note, those who were confused about Donnie's comment on this blog earlier this week, a typo was made in which he inserted the wrong name in referencing whos blood was soaked up in the sheets at the Marriot in Doraville. Please pardon this mistake.

This Guy Might Be an Even Bigger Idiot Than I Am

I know we play right into his hands by linking to it, but whatever.

CBS Sportsline's Gregg Doyel might want to look into a Dawg Vent account. There's not even any need to pick this thing apart. It speaks for itself:

National ranking biggest issue for overrated Bulldogs

"There's a problem with Georgia, but it's nothing that can't be fixed. That's the good news...The problem is more fundamental than Georgia's bad group of receivers, bad pass coverage and bad play-calling. Georgia is ranked No. 2 in the country. That's the problem. But it's a fixable problem. It can be rectified as soon as Sunday night when coaches and media make their newest Top 25 polls and drop the Bulldogs like a left hook to the jaw."

"...Brian Mimbs launched kicks of 45, 51 and 77 yards in the fourth quarter when alleged Heisman candidate quarterback Matthew Stafford and alleged Heisman candidate tailback Knowshon Moreno were factually useless."

"...But when it mattered, Stafford and Moreno didn't."

"...Coach Mark Richt didn't help matters by calling strange plays throughout the quarter, running when he should pass and passing when he should run and generally doing nothing to showcase his two alleged Heisman candidates. And don't get me started on the Georgia receiving corps, which dropped five passes and couldn't be bothered to dive for a catchable ball on another throw."

"...That's one of the charms of the college football season. Sooner or later, mistakes in the polls get rectified. Even a mistake as glaring as the "No. 2" next to the word "Georgia."

Even More Top Fives

I'm back with another Top 5 that no one will listen to, but that's OK, because it gives me something to take my mind off the fact that I have the worst damn fantasy football team in my league. Anyway, this particular edition is made up of the top five new songs by bands I had never heard of before this summer.

1. The Dutchess and the Duke – “Reservoir Park”

This is kind of a folk-rock duo from Seattle that recently played at Tasty World in Athens. And we all know that if there's an official Athens music venue of Only in America, it's Tasty World. This song, and most of their first album, sounds very Rolling Stones, but with mostly acoustic guitar. Think “Paint It Black.”

Reservoir Park - The Dutchess & The Duke

2. Gentleman Jesse and His Men – “You Don't Have To (If You Don't Want To)”

The main dude from this group is the guitarist for Atlanta punk band The Carbonas, but don't let that scare you away, guys. This is pretty straightforward power pop, and pretty much the only competition Drive-By Truckers' “Ghost To Most” has right now for best song of the year.

You Dont Have To (If You Don - Gentleman Jesse

3. The Weight – “A Day in the Sun”

I'm pretty sure these guys have something to do with the same Atlanta punk scene as Gentleman Jesse, but they make country music fit for a place as Southern and dignified as the GB's. Just listen to the beer-opening sound effect at the beginning of this song, not to mention that they break the world record for most Budweiser cans on an album cover.

A Day In The Sun - The Weight

4. King Khan and the Shrines – “Welfare Bread”

A Montreal/Berlin-based, Indian-French-Canadian-fronted band that makes unreal 60s garage rock. The compilation they released earlier this year is entitled “The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines,” and it lives up to its name, seriously. Can't recommend this band strongly enough.

Welfare Bread - King Khan and The Shrines

5. The Gaslight Anthem – “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues”

The album this comes from really isn't that great or anything, at least compared to the other ones on this list, but it's still worth a listen. Guys will probably do something pretty damn good eventually, as soon as they decide to get off the Warped Tour. This song pretty much kills, though.

Even Cowgirls Get The Blues - The Gaslight Anthem
