Great Day...

I bet Todd is fucked up right now.

Anyway, today is (was) a great day not because Todd's guys executed to perfection. More so, because another one of JJH's close pals turned 25 years old today.

Today we salute you Monsieur Barbier....

Without further ado. In honor of our dear friend. Top 5 dead baby jokes.... (The squeamish may want to turn away)

(drum roll please)

5- Q: What's worse than a dead baby in a trashcan lid?
A: A trashcan lid in a dead baby.

4- Q: Why do you unload a truck full of babies with a pitchfork?
A: So you can tell which ones are still alive.

3- Q: What's the difference between a dead baby and a trampoline?
A: You take your boots off before you jump on a trampoline.

OK, OK. That's it. I have grossed myself out. You John Barbier are one sick son of a bitch. Happy Birthday, nonetheless.

BC Teams of the Decade:

5. 2007 Golf
A number of team tournament victories, Region Champions, and 3rd place in the AAA State Tournament. An individual State Championship was captured as well.

4. 2007-08 Wrestling
The best year for probably the most successful program of the decade. Team finished 3rd in the state and had two wrestlers compete in the finals. Ryan Gregory won the state championship and Nick Wright and Shane Summerlin were in the finals. Wright won it all in '09.

3. 2005 Baseball
A 20-9 overall record and 11-1 in region play. A controversial call in Guyton gave South Effingham the # 1 seed in the playoffs. A lineup with 5 future college players advanced to the 2nd round of the AAA state playoffs. The Cadets defeated Worth Co. in the 1st round with a dramatic walk off win in Game 2 to complete the series sweep. BC was eliminated in the 2nd round by Columbus, the eventual state champions.

2. 2002-03 Basketball
The most successful team since the '96-'97 season. A senior laden team with heavy contributions from 2 juniors. Included was a 3rd place finish in the St. Pius Christmas Tournament. Beat every team in region 3-AAAAA other than Beach, including a win over Savannah High. A 3 seed in the region tournament was also the highest since '97.

1. 2000 Football
9-2 overall record and Region Champions. Led by Finnochario Award winner Lamar Owens, the biggest win of the season came over Camden in Kingsland on a last second FG by Mell. BC went undefeated in sub-region play highlighted by a huge 2nd half comeback over Glynn. BC had 10 players make the all-region team. 6 players went onto the next level.

BC Games of the Decade:

7. 2007 Baseball @ Calvary/ 2009 Baseball vs. SCPS
2 teams that BC dominated in the 00's, 7 wins to 2 losses. 2 of the wins came by way of stellar pitching performances. In '07 BC beat the eventual Class A champs 1-0 behind the complete game outing of Kyle Tootle. In '09 Wynn Moore led BC's effort over SCPS with the same result, 1-0.

6. 2003 Basketball @ Groves
A back and forth game saw BC come up with the best finish to a basketball game in recent memory. Down 1, Cannon took a pass from Murray and went almost the length of the court and saw a running floater hit the bottom of the net, at the buzzer, to cap off the regular season.

5. 2001 Football @ Wayne Co.
Voted by the SMN as the game of the year. BC won in Jesup in 2OT with the help of a fumbleruskie and despite Carlos Height rushing for over 200 yards. The BC coaching staff caught the referees cutting BC's play clock short on multiple occasions during the 1st half, yet BC overcame the Yellow Jackets and the Wayne County Officials Association to get the victory.

4. 2005 Football @ South Effingham
BC beat undefeated and ranked SE 7-0 in Guyton. Led by an all-time performance by LB Anthony Wallace and a D. Dotson to C. Pollard TD pass, BC came away with one of the biggest upsets of the decade and a win over its future coach.

3. 2003/04 Basketball vs./@ SHS
The two best wins of the decade in completely different fashion. 2003: The game was played In front of one of the largest crowds of the decade at BC's gym. A very good BC team, which had a lot of people expecting a win, outlasted the Jackets. It was Crawford's 24th game against BC..... 2004: Shocking the most faithful of BC fans, the Cadets upset SHS at the Ron Love Athletic Center behind seniors Bell, Frankie, and junior The Hinchey. Up to that point SHS's record had almost been perfect in that arena

2. 2000 Football vs. Glynn
BC overcame a 3 TD deficit in the 2nd half and won 36-29 in OT to all but clinch the sub-region championship. Future Navy kicker Joey Bullen missed a game winning FG for Glynn in the waining seconds to allow the game to go into OT. Dotson and O'Neal captured player of the week honors for their efforts and Ziegler was sensational on defense with 2 INT'S.

1. 2000 Football @ Camden
A very wet game that was a defensive struggle for most of the night. Trailing late, Owens found freshman Kenny O'Neal on a simple go route to pull BC to within 1 point. A celebration penalty was called on the play and the ensuing PAT, from 35 yards, sailed wide. With time running out BC forced the Camden QB to fumble and the rest is history. BC 9, Camden 7. Camden has not lost a region or home regular season game to a Georgia school since. They went on to win 3 state championships in the 00's.

Untitled Post (JJH Edition)


Good work with the bday post. What you said about Connolly -- "can Connolly ever be given enough credit?"-- can be said about Rick. Lets try to give Rick more credit.

Rick is _______________

Fill in blank in comment section.

I'll start: 'on a better 3v3 football team than Barstool.'

434 turns 25

Today, December 23rd, 2009, we at OIA wish PMac and Rick Schwarz a very happy 25th birthday.

These two have lived together for the better half of a decade. They left their mark at Russell Hall. Then it was on to Campus Lodge where many memories were made. Now, they are in the process of breaking in Buckhead. Wherever these two have been, (Tuscaloosa, Columbia, Athens, Tybee, Statesboro, Savannah, Atlanta, Tampa, or Tennessee) it's been awesome for us and bad news for everyone else.

How Patrick has managed to live with Rick for all these years and not get seriously injured (except the torn MCL)is anyone's guess. Some might say he's crazy, and in a way, I would agree. We've seen Patrick with phone books, old furniture, and upset neighbors: he can flip the switch with the best of them. And we've heard the comments which continue to shock even his beloved roommate. Then there is Pat's drinking ability would make any Irishman proud: he can drink with the best of them, yet always seems to be in control. It is undoubtedly these things which make us want to hang out with Patrick. Beyond this, he is one of the nicest, classiest guys I've ever met. Plus, I hear he's really long off the tee. I suspect this to be one of the many reasons the ladies love him. He's a damn good friend and a damn good person.

Rick and I have been buds since he was carrying around Deridder dolls at Cannon Court. And during my first year of college, we hung out a lot. Sophomore year of college, things took off. Downtown Athens was our playground. We have rocked and rolled ever since. Infamous stories of our exploits continue to be discussed today. But while the rocking and rolling is what has made Slic famous, there's more to him than just that. (No, I'm not talking about what made Emily fall in love with him years ago).

He is a movie buff; the guy has seriously seen more movies than I've ever heard of. He is a sports fanatic. Even at a time when he is enduring the epic fall of the Trojan dynasty, he still stands proudly in CPC's corner. But seriously, behind all the fire Van Halanger talk, there is not a bigger Dog fan in the world than Rick Schwarz. Besides being an avid Dog fan, Schwarz is a proud supporter of Benedictine. I think Rick represents the "hey I went to BC so I am better than you" attitude better than anyone else. Further, to say Rick is loyal would be an understatement. If Rick likes something or someone, he will defend it until the day he dies. And while Schwarz certainly does not come off as the compassionate type, I will never forget what he did for me when my dad had a heart attack. Lastly, we hear Rick talk about Georgia not needing to settle all the time. While none of us really know what we are doing at the time, I know one thing: Rick will be successful at whatever he ends up doing.

Happy birthday, guys. 10-6.

The Last Best of the Decade Post?

I probably forgot all kinds of things on this, but here you go...

Top 5 Georgia Games of the 2000s

5. Men's Basketball vs. Florida, 2003 -- Georgia basketball obviously hasn't had much to celebrate this decade, but the 2003 team (Harrick shenanigans aside), and this game in particular, gave us a glimpse of how much fun it is to be relevant on the men's side. The best Georgia player in recent memory scores with 15 seconds left to beat your archrival, which just happens to be ranked third in the country.

4. Football at Alabama, 2007 -- Some would say this wasn't even the best football game in 2007, but I'd remind them of how rare it is to win on the very last play. The Alabama comeback and Coutu's missed field goal as time expired are what separates this from, say, Steve Newman's shot against Arkansas.

3. College World Series vs. Fresno State, 2008 -- So things didn't turn out so well after this one, but what a game it was. The best Georgia baseball player ever homers to spark a comeback from three runs down in the eighth, and Josh Fields has his last great moment in a Georgia uniform.

2. Football at Tennessee, 2001 -- Way back in 2001, a lot of people really weren't sure if Mark Richt knew what he was doing, especially after a loss to Slic's hated Gamecocks. But after Georgia beat Tennessee in Knoxville, it was clear he knew exactly what he was doing.

1. Football at Auburn, 2002 -- There was a time when I though Georgia would never finish ahead of Tennessee or Florida in the SEC East. Much like I say with men's basketball now, all the ingredients were there; no one could make it work. So to me, this game was even more important than Tennessee 2001, though I'm sure a lot of people disagree.

I won't bore you with explanations for the other two lists. Instead, I'll just say that they were picked largely on the degree to which I was caught up in the game or moment at the time.

Picture Of The Decade???

I really just wanted an excuse to post this picture again.

Turning in Homework Earlier (Hopefully Barstool Gives Me Extra Credit)

In no particular order, below is a list of the Top Five Catastrophes/Controversies of the past decade. I thought a top five financial gurus list would be too debatable amongst all the blog members. Please leave comments of any memorable controversies or catastrophes from the past 10 years that I have failed to mention.

Donnie v. Jack

We’ve all heard numerous stories. I think if you asked Jack or Donnie what really happened that fateful night in Atlanta, GA neither would actually remember the details of their ‘fight’. The only person besides Jack and Donnie that has any direct insight of the fight would be Donnie’s hotel roommate-- and we all know who he is going to side with…. especially since they shared an intimate moment that night.

Slick v. David Greene Jersey

Rick puked on his David Greene Jersey, Donnie’s mom cleaned it. End. Of. Story. (This falls into the ‘catastrophe’ category as there was nothing ‘controversial’ that happened that night)

Me v. Hicks

Our relation started cordial but quickly turned sour. He made me sit on a stool in the back corner of his classroom. On St. Patrick’s Day two years after I graduated from high school Hicks told me that “he is glad that he taught me because now he knows he will never have to deal with a worse person” [paraphrased]. A few years after that I saw him on Tybee during the 2007 Beach Bum Parade (the one where we got the float and wore the green caps—‘the Irish Hurricane’). I threw a huge bucket of water on him and his wife held him back as he was coming for me. I think he wanted to beat my ass. I guess that was the straw…

Pmac v. parents houses

Patrick had a badass party at his mom’s house the summer going into senior year. His mom found out and was disappointed to say the least. He then had another party the next summer. Donnie had interesting stories following both parties despite the fact that he didn’t make it to the neighborhood for one of them. Other parties ensued at other locations when PMac's mother moved away.(Not sure who reads this blog).

T. Wolfe v. Tampa Bay Taxi Cab Driver

Jack didn’t want to walk the quarter mile to our hotel and we were stranded in the middle of downtown Tampa Bay without a ride. Finally a cab driver pulls up and we start to pile in. When the cab driver told us an outrageous price (I think cabs were going for like $10-$20 a person) T. Wolfe started arguing with him. In broken English the driver told us all to get out of the vehicle. Tony—furious as only people like Tony and B.G. can be after getting kicked out of a cab for being an asshole—walks in front of the cab, bangs on the hood of the car, flicks the driver off and yells an ethnic slur in a town that is known for ethnic violence. It took a long time to get another cab.

Other Notables:

??? v. TI Property/'Love Palace of D'; Demont v. the World; and Slick v. Martinez

Obnoxiously Long Post Time

Since there aren't a whole lot of things I post about on here, and music is one of them, I'll go ahead and throw out my best music of the 2000s extravaganza. Note: there are several sports “best-ofs” in the works that will be a lot more interesting.

I'll go ahead and say this now -- I don't care about what's the “most important,” “most influential,” or anything else. The way I see it, the only way to make a list like this is to go with what you think is the “most awesome.”

And because I know no one really gives a damn about what I think is cool, I'll start with a Top 5 that everyone should be able to get behind:

The Top 5 Songs That People Actually Listened To In The 2000s*

5. Jet, Cold Hard Bitch -- Jet is a seriously terrible band. Or was. I don't know if they still exist, but I do know that no one here cares enough for me to waste the 15 seconds it would take to look that up. I also don't know how awful bands trip over themselves into one great song, but Jet managed to do that in 2003.

4. Outkast, Hey Ya! -- I almost left this off the list, just because it was overplayed to the point of annoyance for years. But I listened to it again at the last minute, and there are still like 25 different hooks stuffed into the song. Sometimes things get overplayed for good reason.

3. Modest Mouse, Float On -- It's still really weird that this song took off like it did. Unlike songs by other good bands like the White Stripes, it actually got played on Mix stations and stuff. It really was inescapable, and I'd consider it the first of many Bourbon Street specials.

2. Kelly Clarkson, Since U Been Gone -- I'll never understand why more songs like this one don't become huge hits. Or to be more specific, why artists as visible as Kelly Clarkson don't record more singles like this one: a simple, three-minute rock song with a massive chorus.

1. The Killers, Mr. Brightside -- Not only is this the best Top 40 single of the decade, but The Killers are clearly the best singles band of the decade. Their albums might blow, but damn if they don't write two or three keepers every time out. Also, this song owned B-Street for the better part of our college careers, which has to count for something.

Also considered: Franz Ferdinand -- Take Me Out, Beyonce -- Crazy In Love, Jay-Z -- Izzo.

* My sense of what was “actually listened to” is probably way off.

Now for the stuff that interests no one:

The Actual Top 5 Songs According To Anymouse

5. TV on the Radio, Wolf Like Me -- Yes, it's a song about turning into a werewolf. No, it's got nothing to do with all those movies about teenagers turning into various mythical creatures. Which begs the question: Slic, you seen those Twilight movies yet?

4. Neko Case, I Wish I Was the Moon -- Sometimes it's hard to remember that country music exists outside the realm of The Beauregard's, but Neko Case's voice is able to remind me every so often.

3. Drive-By Truckers, Goddamn Lonely Love -- You knew I had to get Drive-By Truckers/Jason Isbell onto this list somehow. I'd say this was Isbell's finest moment with the band.

2. The White Stripes, Ball and Biscuit -- Best song by the best band of the decade, pretty much.

1. The Hold Steady, Stuck Between Stations -- Song's got everything. It's loud, catchy, has smart lyrics and a Bruce Springsteen piano breakdown. On the right day, I'd call it my favorite song of all time.

Also considered: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists -- Me and Mia, Songs Ohia -- Farewell Transmission, The Libertines -- Can't Stand Me Now.

And finally:

The Top 5 Albums According To Anymouse

5. The White Stripes, White Blood Cells -- I really could have put anything the White Stripes did this decade in the Top 5, but I guess this is the most deserving record. Partly because it was my, and just about everyone else's, introduction to them. Partly because “Fell In Love With a Girl” and “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” probably are the quintessential White Stripes songs.

4. The National, Alligator -- I know it's really hacky to just post things other people have written, but I'm running out of steam at this point, so that's exactly what you're getting with the next three: “...wry, filthy, and often eloquently sad tales of materialism, sex, and loneliness... The National may sound like a garage band turned down, but there's as much primal energy lurking behind Alligator as in any mop-topped group of city kids with bloodstained Danelectros in a dusty warehouse. (AllMusic)”

3. Neko Case, Blacklisted -- “Case has a voice so soaked in the nuances of country music that she might well have been born to sing it. Blacklisted brings in a torch to accompany the twang... The songs are spectral, yearning, and a bit opaque, the kind of music appropriate for a bar in which everyone has had a few and feels no better for it. (AVClub)”

2. The Hold Steady, Separation Sunday -- “Separation Sunday is mostly about the nostalgia of decadence, but it's also about Catholic schoolgirls, blackouts, wrong-way drives, and putting your mouth around a difficult question. You can trip over hyperbole just thinking about this record: they really are the country's most intuitive bar band fronted by our most original songwriter. (PopMatters)”

1. Wilco, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot -- Everything you read about Radiohead in every other “best of the decade” list this month should go for this album as well. You have to take most of the things I post on this blog with a grain of salt, obviously, but I'm completely serious when I say that Yankee Hotel Foxtrot floored me as a 16-year-old two years into high school and still holds up seven years later.

Also considered: The Strokes -- Is This It, Ryan Adams -- Heartbreaker, Drive-By Truckers -- Decoration Day.

Relationships of the Decade

10: Rick Schwarz and Emily Barbee
Where do I begin? They went ice skating together. They frolicked on the trampoline. He was really tired one night, but he still managed to make it to a viewing of Paycheck. Things flamed out once Swarz had to get back to business in Athens. Still, they were together for the infamous New Year's party at my house where sofas were broken, I threw up, and vacuum cleaners ate shorts.

9: Bishop Boland and Ms. Dolan
Star-crossed lovers, these two have caused more of an uproar in our area than any other couple of the last decade.

8: Erica "Meyer" Adams and the Benedictine graduating classes of 2002-2005
Kappa Delta. Red jeep. Margarita pitchers. My sweet green anorak.

7: Shane and Joelle Gzniayktx
One Memorial Day Shane drank about a dozen warm beers on the beach. The tanned bimbo ended up being the little spoon at the Love Palace. Unfortunately, she's never been back.

6: Rick Schwarz and the Bama Beauties
These ladies rolled into Savannah with Alabama's own Robert Fender last St. Patrick's Day. They met Schwarz through mutual friends, and he showed them the time of their lives. While they were unable to keep up with his rock n'roll lifestyle, this is a relationship that is far from over.

5: Schiv and Katie Crider
"True love is the soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another." This quote from the movie Wedding Crashers sums it up. Watching these two together makes even the toughest guy smile. Currently, she's in New York finding herself while Bryan remains in Athens studying law and group behavior at Bourbon Street. This relationship is likely to be on the list next decade as well.

4: Joey Sims and Brooke Blanton
I am not sure how they met or who introduced them to each other, but I am so happy for them!

3: Katy Sauers and Rand Boyd
RAND!!!!! Apparently, this match made in heaven provided a lot of entertainment, but I only got to see them go at it a time or two. Ask JJH4 for the details on these two, and ask Rick for an impression. JJ.

2: Donnie Bell and Molly Holmes
So we've hit a rough patch. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. She will grow her hair back, and we will work things out.

1: Us and Bourbon Street
It's always there for us. And it is awesome.

Honorable Mention: Clowe and Plowe, Andrew and the SVA graduating class of 2005, Connolly and Savannah Cougars, JJ and LSU Lauren, Meg Johnson and myself, Schiv and Leigh, Peg Holland and Jonathan Williams, Kacey and Brandon/Sam, People and Tim Tebow, Kris Durham and Courtney Kupets, O'Hayer and Annie's friend, Shane and Nolan, and Rick and Tatoo.

Tommy Cannon Court

Tonight I am going to my first BC basketball game of the year. I'm excited about this year's team. It's going to be weird watching BC without Coach Cannon on the bench. I've mentioned this to some of yall before, but I think it would be appropriate to name the court after CTC sometime in the near future. Here are some of my ideas about how it should be done:

1: Give it time.
Wait till next year to do it. Right now, the Cannon family and others are still upset about how he was let go from Benedictine. Time heals all. Regardless of how you feel about how/why them let him go, I think we all agree that it's good for BC to be in good graces with the Cannon family. He means a lot to a lot of people in the BC community.

2: Date.
Set a date around Christmas time next year so as many people as possible can attend the game. Brady is somewhere on the other side of the earth so he needs to have the opportunity to attend. Hinchey is in Costa Rica, and it would be a shame if he couldn't make it.

3: Opponent.
Get a Bryan County or other weak opponent because the night is meant to be about Cannon, and the team will obviously be distracted. We need to win on the night we name our court after someone. Let's play someone we beat regardless of all the hoopla before the game and during halftime.

4: Pre-game.
Before the game, have Father Frank introduce the guest of honor. A brief prayer and a few words of gratitude will be appropriate.

5: Halftime.
At halftime, let Pierce, Brady, Bobby or someone else say a few words about what BC meant to Cannon. Then invite everyone who played for Cannon to come to center court along with the current players. I think it would be pretty astonishing to see how many guys have played for Cannon in the last 30 years. If Coach Cannon wanted to say something, then of course he'd be able to.

6: Post game.
Social at the Cafetorium. Beer/Barnes catering. You know the drill. The Cannon stories that night would be spectacular.

Other suggestions:
No video tribute. No speeches by anyone except people in his family. No "roasts". In other words, stay away from anything that Coach Cannon would make fun of.


***The top 10 relationships of the past decade will be up no later than Sunday.***

TCU fans knew not for which they cheered on BCS selection show
By Matt Hinton

If you were wondering during Sunday night's BCS rollout on Fox why TCU fans seemed so excited about a rematch of last year's Poinsettia Bowl with Boise State that offered neither team the opportunity to vanquish its skeptics against an elite powerhouse, it was for good reason: They really weren't that excited. According to TCU baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle, most of the enthusiastic crowd shots were whipped up and canned well before the show began, of fans who had no idea where they were going or who they were going to play (emphasis added):

So the team is there, coach Gary Patterson is there, the Fox camera crew is there and Fox reporter Charissa Thompson is there. According to coach Schlossnagle, the producers were there pumping their fists and getting the crowd jazzed with applause signs and all. He said they didn’t know which bowl game they were going to play in at the beginning of the taping and even when it did go live, Thompson only told the fans gathered there that they were going to the Fiesta Bowl and not who they would play.

Coach Patterson was finally told it would be against Boise State right before Thompson stuck a mic in his face.

It was when people started filing out of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum that the fans realized it was a rematch with Boise State that their Frogs got and not the chance to play a team like Florida. The crowd walked away disappointed. No chance to prove themselves against the snobby big-money players in the good ole boys network.

The BCS: Sending 'em away disappointed since 1998.
Not that I'm exactly in the "Plessy v. Ferguson" camp about this game -- you know, teams from non-BCS leagues are relegated to the "separate but equal" bowl -- because the matchup is more a quirk of the selection order and automatic tie-ins than a conspiracy to keep the little guys down. But when the only energy for your system has to be goaded by camera crews from crowds that would react with anger and disappointment when provided with accurate information, that public relations push still has a long row to hoe.

Congress Reverses Ruling, Sanjaya "'True' American Idol"

Not Really. But the house did pass a college football playoff bill.

These guys are clowns. Up next investigating last season's 'Biggest Loser' and overturning America's decision on Season Ones 'Dancing with the Stars.'

From the article:

"What can we say — it's December and the BCS is in chaos again," said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the top Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He said the BCS system is unfair and won't change unless prompted by Congress.

He's obviously a TCU fan.

I don't really care either way whether there is a playoff system or a bowl system. I will certainly watch either. What bothers me is that there are dickheads in D.C. that think its their business to change things for everyone. Please. Let INDIVIDUALS decide!!!! Maybe I just don't understand the system. Am I alone on this?

Do Yourself A Favor

Go see The Blind Side.

Since Sons of Anarchy ended last week there wasn't a damn thing on TV after A Charlie Brown Christmas last night. Therefore I decided to dabble in some good ole fashion movie piracy and watch The Blind Side online. I wasn't disappointed and I don't think you'll be either.

Game On

Gator DC Charlie Strong looks likes he will be named the next head coach at Louisville tomorrow afternoon according to ESPN. Now Georgia has to compete with Florida St. and Florida to fill their DC opening. I hope CMR does not back down seeing as how this is the most important hire of his tenure. FSU had Alabama DC and former Dawg Kirby Smart on the top of their list but I've heard that may not be the case any more. No telling who CUM has in mind.

Dawg fans, we're not completely free of Strong just yet. Remember, Georgia does play Louisville in a home-and-home during the 2011-2012 seasons.

In related news, CKS won the 2009 Broyles Award today, given to the top assistant football coach in the nation. DGD CBVG won that award back in 2003. Get to work Mark.

College Football Thoughts/Questions

Why did ESPN just have a 30-minute discussion about whether Alabama is going to have trouble “turning its attention to Texas”? It's the m-f'ing national championship game.

If I had told you in August that Georgia would have as good a season as USC and Oklahoma, you'd have taken it, right?

Boise State-TCU in the Fiesta is complete b.s. Also, someone convince me TCU wasn't the best team in the country during the regular season.

McCoy and Tebow were unworthy of going to the Heisman ceremony before yesterday. Is there a chance in hell that either one of them doesn't end up there, if not win it? Hopefully Ndamukong Suh at least gets some votes. Guy is unbelievable.

Bo Pelini needs to say screw it and hire one of Tech's offensive assistants.

As for the SEC championship, all I'll say is this:

Cannon Would Have Been Pissed...

If this were B.C. playing defence.

And We're Looking For A DC

Two Georgia boys heading up defenses in the MNC game. Two DGD's leading the two BEST defenses in the country. I give CMR credit for doing what had to be done (although I said it should have been done 3 years ago) but I have to wonder if his actions were a day late and a dollar short.

FYI, we had CKS on staff... coaching running backs.

HOOK 'EM!!!!

Suck it Bear, just like in '07...

Congratulations Are In Order

My boy, Drew Butler, son of the legendary kicker/radio show host Kevin Butler, was named to the AFCA All-American Team.

Those damn All-Americans. They get all the girls...

Christmas Come Early

Don't worry about any presents pops. I got what I wanted.

Three Georgia Assistant Coaches Not Renewed for 2010

For Immediate Release
Dec. 2, 2009

ATHENS-------- Contracts of three Georgia assistant football coaches will not be renewed following the 2009 season according to an announcement Wednesday by UGA head football coach Mark Richt.

Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Willie Martinez, defensive co-coordinator and linebacker coach John Jancek, and defensive ends coach Jon Fabris will not return in 2010 according to Richt; however, he indicated that all three have been asked to coach through the bowl game.

³I cannot express enough my thanks to all three for their contributions to our program,² said Richt. ³However, in the final analysis I¹m charged with providing the leadership and direction for the Georgia program and sometimes that means making difficult decisions. This was one of them.²

Martinez and Fabris are members of Richt¹s original staff that came in 2001. Jancek joined the Georgia staff in 2005.

Tiger Woods Update

Tiger Woods is dead according some news outlets!!

Alleged suicide after all rumors have turned out to be true, including ones that no body even knew about. He evidently had starving children in his basement. He made these starving children watch him and his mistress perform mommy and daddy behaviors while his wife was attending Satan worshiping festivals.

Warning: Piggyback!!

We Hit The Big Time Now

La la land was fun for a couple of days. Back to the reality of being a bad football team.

GHSA Enrollment Numbers Are Out

No major surprises on my first run through it.

BC is slotted for AA, but hopefully they do the right thing. Richmond Hill moves into AAAA territory, but I figure they'd rather play Johnson and Groves than Brunswick and South Effingham. Charlton County drops to A, which is bad news for Chumley.

One question, though. wtf is this all about:

NEW SCHOOLS (2011-2012)
Coastal (Savannah) 600 projected

NEW SCHOOLS (2012-2013)
New Savannah 900 projected

I know I'm not in Savannah all the time anymore, but did I miss something?

So This Is What Really Happens...

...on SSI Georgia-Florida weekend. I had heard stories but I had no idea it was this bad. JD would be appalled.

Sunday, November 01, 2009

So Now I Am Here...

Yesterday was Awesome. I woke up this morning in a completely trashed hotel room that smelt like 7 day old warm beer.

So Georgia lost? Boo Hoo. That didnt rain on my parade. (I guess my expectations weren't that high in the first place.) I dont know enough words to describe exactly what happened yesterday/how incredible it was. But, what I will do is a top five.

All of these things happened yesterday...

5.) Me and Barstool are friends again. I see him about as often as some of my other friends and that is about once every 3-5 months.

The opposite of this.

4.)Merchant told me that Frankie should definitely be playing NBA basketball.

Merchant: "He didnt try hard at all in high school so he wasnt going to be able to make the grades to play in college."

I told Colby that there arent a lot of 5'7 players in the NBA to which he reply "Yea, right. Look at Spud Webb. He was like the best basketball player ever."

I wish there wouldn't have been a UGA game so that I could have just talked to Merchant all day.

3.) Jack, Lindsay and I coined a soon-to-be very popular euphemism for procreation. I'll use it in a sentence.

"Donnie 'squashed the pasta' with (fill in one of about 40 girls names here)"

2.) A mentally handicapped young Florida fan talked major shit to me a good part of the entire first half. (I know what you're thinking. 'Aren't all Florida fans retarded?'. Nyuck Nyuck Nycuck. Sorry Andrew?)

After about 10 minutes of friendly banter...

Me: "Being a Florida fan, you guys have had a lot to be excited about in the past couple years"
Retarded Fella: "You haven't!"

1) I took my fun to Dave and Busters and took a bear fight with (potentially; has not yet been confirmed) T.J. Duckett and some big guy that played for Georgia with Coach Cumley. (Something Moss- a google search turned up fruitless.)

You mean to tell me there is a place where you can
go , get drunk and play video games?

JJH, you are right. It is not hard to have fun in Jacksonville during that weekend. I will continue going every year I can.

Haiku-less Friday

Happy Friday. In the 3 minutes it would have taken me to do a haiku, I decided to find a badass picture of Kris Durham instead. That picture reminded me that we are 1-0 in the state of Florida in 2009. I don't know about our chances tomorrow. The Gators have a better offense and a better defense than we do. We have a good kicker, a great punter, and AJ Green. The pressure is on them. Go Dogs!

Thanks for all the love on the blog. I really appreciate it. I've been in school for what seems like forever, and I can't really say that I've learned that much important stuff. Somewhere along the way though, I did realize how fragile life is. I think it's important to tell the people who matter how you feel about them. The dumb birthday posts you fruits made were the best presents in the world. I'm lucky to live in the greatest country in the world in the best city. I'm lucky I got to go to the best high school in America. And I realize that Dotson would make fun of me for saying this (as he would for the entire post), but I am lucky to have the best group of friends in the world. Thanks, guys. Yall are great, even Shane.


Let the Good Times Roll...

Might as well keep this party rockin' till the wee morning hours just like Bell and myself have done oh so many times before.

Teamwork is the key to success in the JROTC program.

I thought about reflecting back on some of the greatest Bell-Schwarz moments of all time. The problem with that is 1) there's just too damn many and 2) Don would probably have a better recollection of the events than myself. Seeing as how Murray, JH4, and Weazle have already done a damn fine job telling the world about what makes DB awesome, I'll keep it short and sweet:

Have a great birthday and don't do anything I wouldn't do! 1338 Gables Dr. will celebrate in your honor this weekend.

The General and I salute you on this glorious occasion and here's to many happy returns...

I'll leave you with a grand tune that's sure to conjure up good times and great memories:

P.S. Monsieur Webber sends his best and hopes to see you around Tybee some time, maybe at the Legion.

Shane beat me...

but Donnie is good and since I'm part of Dawg Duo I can't be his best friend but can be a friend.

Top 5:
1. Don is a player. He played at St. Michael’s and dominated with a star-studded crew. Plowe would pass him the ball. He then told those players they were not good enough, for he had found Chuck. Despite that, he was such a good guy prior to the departure that most everyone in the SMS family is still friendly with him today. He went onto Benedictine where he excelled in sports. He played Football just because and short of Houston might have been the most productive player on the team. He won the Effingham game almost by himself. He was a 3 year starter on the hardwood in the toughest region in the state. He was the common component in one of the greatest achievements in BC history. He, along with Frankie J., defeated Savannah High in consecutive years. The second of which came in the Ron Love Athletic Center. He also played baseball with Bunger and Patton. He was a LET III student.

2. Don is a gracious host. Whether it’s Tybee, Athens, or Statesboro he has always been more than generous with his living space. The room and board that has been offered by Don and his family over the past years has been quite amazing and there is almost nothing any of us can do to show the gratitude they deserve. In the same spirit, he is more willing than anyone I know to help you out when you need it.

3. He will have a good time. He has had his fair share of horsemen by his side, but no matter where the show goes the common thread is Don. He went stride for stride with the Champ for almost 4 years. The student caught up to the mentor and the show has only grown. There are people in Statesboro who still don’t know exactly what he’s doing and Williams sometimes falls asleep. I’ve never seen him in Vegas but if New Orleans was any indication I don’t know how good of an idea either one of those are. There are very few I have ever seen that can compete with him.

4. He lives well. He could not have attended better schools growing up, outside of 1 year. He lives on Tybee and can surf. He played sports and was good at them. People he doesn’t like, like him. Has fundamentally sound golf swing. He lived at Tanyard and could walk to Bourbon as well as Peaches. Has had girlfriends. He knew Idrissi and Bliss. He says he knows Durham. Honorary KA.

5. Still friends with Plowe despite him being a Dagon for 8 years. Makes fun of Shane a lot.

10-6 Happy Birthday, gtg.

"Yeah, Probably Your Toaster"

I don't quite know how to toast the toastmaster, but I'll give it a shot...

I also don't know 10 good things about Donnie so I'll keep this brief. Donnie is my best friend. If for 30 years Donnie and I didn't speak to each other; in 30 years, when we did, we would pick up right where we left off.

Here is 5 good things about Donnie:

5) He's more clever than anyone I have ever met.
4) He's a friend to the ladies
3) He's a great drinking partner although he is an instigator of Gin drinking.
2) People want to be his friend. I haven't known Donnie for that long, but I'd bet he's never had a difficult time finding friends.
1) He's actually not that bad of a guy

Yea, my number one was "He's actually not that bad of a guy." You're Welcome.

I think you should have a couple on me this weekend Donnie. Lets try to get as drunk as this guys...

Or, this guy...

Weekend Thoughts

1: Dogs win. AJ Green is the best (healthy) wide receiver in college football. Our defense looked good. Drew Butler can punt the ball far. Walsh is good.

2: Cadets put up 24 against Charlton. I wasn't at the game so I'm not sure if that came in garbage time or what, but at least they covered the spread.

3: CPC did it again. The end of that game was awesome.

4: The pass interference call at the end of the Florida game was awful. The personal foul call was ridiculous; it was worse than the AJ Green celebration call.

5: I heard Jeff Francouer was rocking and rolling in Savannah this weekend. I guess he didn't make it down to Tybee. He seems like more of a HHI guy anyway.

6: DJ Marty is still doing his thing at Tybee Times.

7: Boise St. -3, Georgia -1/2, and USC -3 worked out well.

8: The Calvary/Portal game was the worst high school football game I've ever seen.

9: 5 more days until the 2004 5 year class reunion. Prediction: about 40 guys show up, about 10 make it into the game, and a handful get arrested later that night. This will be the last 5 year reunion BC has.

10: Apparently, there is a category 5 Hurricane Rick heading for Mexico. The paper said the storm was "extremely dangerous". No shit.

Humpday Thoughts

1: New South Park at 10:00 tonight. Nip/Tuck encore at 11:00. Solid TV.

2: I liked South Park last Wednesday. This season of Desperate has been awesome so far.

3: Next Friday, the class of 2004 is having its 5 year reunion at the BC game. Over/under arrests: 4 1/2.

4: Florida's defense > Bama's defense. Bama's offense > Florida's offense. Florida/Bama Special Teams: Push. I like the Gators in the Dome.

5: How does Tebow suffer his first significant injury before an off week? That would never happen to a team I like.

6: I hope the Angels win it all.

7: It's too bad about the USA soccer player, Davies. I hope he makes a full recovery.

8: Teaser lock of the week: Boise -3, UGA -1/2, USC-3.

9: I'm glad Georgia doesn't play Tech on Pirate Fest weekends.

10: Rush should be able to buy the Rams. Players/coaches should be able to speak their minds about it.

11: Cowherd needs to go back to radio.

12: I hope Paul Wolfe loses.

13: October is the best month of the year on Tybee. May is the second.

14: I like Fr. O'Brien. The SMS/SPA rivalry is dying down.

15: Athens restaurants > Statesboro restaurants.

16: Go Dogs. Go Cadets. Go Irish.
