I think I texted the letters G, M & O more times Saturday evening than ever before. That was during the game, especially the fourth quarter and after the game was over the first time (before they put one second back on the clock which was the right call).
I stopped texting and answering my phone after the game was over for good. One heck of a game and one heck of a way to lose.
Congrats to the Tigers. They rolled the Tide and deserve it.

Great read here. In case you missed it, Martin Bashir recently uttered the most vile and disgusting thing ever heard on television, aimed at Sarah Palin. When Bashir says he’d like to defecate in her mouth, or ed schultz screams obscenities at a war veteran, or al sharpton race baits for profit, we can at least take solace in the fact that nobody’s watching…

I saw the great little story in the Sergeant Grit Newsletter. Lots of submission from readers about the Marine Corp. This one was great and there is a wonderful quote at the end… Very accurate. The website is www.grunt.com. (“Butter Bars” refer to the gold colored 2nd Lt bar. A 2nd Lt is the rank of the newbie Lt…)
When I was with 2d Tank Bn at CLNC as a Corpsman, the 2ndLTs had to go to the range to qualify. I was assigned to be the Corpsman. (I was an HM1, E6 at the time). As the Butter Bars were taking their positions, I happened to notice one of the gentlemen using a “revolver” grip on holding the 1911, instead of the standard both hands under hold. I remarked to him that he might find it more comfortable in the long run if he used the under grip. He told me “I am an officer, and I know what I am doing!” (RIGHT!) So, I went back to my position with the RSO. Sure enough, the first round he fired, the slide came back and gouged the h-ll out of the “V” in his left hand. RSO calls… CORPSMAN UP! I cleaned it out thoroughly (ok, maybe a little more thorough that necessary). I told him what my Daddy had told me… “If yer gonna be stupid, ya gotta be tough!” Needless to say, he used the proper hold after that…

The U.S. Supreme Court today vacated two stays of execution for convicted murderer Joseph Paul Franklin. The decision clears the way for Missouri to proceed with his execution.
Franklin is on death row for the 1977 murder of Gerald Gordon outside a synagogue in St. Louis. He’s been blamed for 22 killings between 1977 and 1980 in a bid to start a race war.
In addition to the killings, Franklin admitted to the attempted assassinations of Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt in 1978 and civil rights leader Vernon Jordan in 1980. Flynt, who was paralyzed by Franklin’s bullet, has called for clemency for Franklin, saying “the government has no business at all being in the business of killing people.”

All is well in Northern IL after yesterday’s storms. Yarbz and I were in post JuggFest football watching mode yesterday when the dang tornadic activity began and the Bears game was delayed by two hours (good call by them, it was dangerous). He and my wife both witnessed this event when I yelled, “is that a man buttfucking a cow in that sign in the corner?”. My wife paused the pic and Yarbz took a picture. He is convinced in was a sheep and not a cow. Surprisingly, Ed Curran did not mention it and they did not use that picture again. We had a very good laugh.

While Michael Moore is still a dickhead does it come as any surprise that Moore has referred to Edward Snowden as ‘an American hero’?
Speaking of which doesn’t Rakey McHotDog look a lot like our favorite fat boy from Flint?

Yarbz arrives Friday evening and we have all day Saturday to celebrate (and watch Bama play Mississippi State at Starkville, 5:45 CST, ESPN). I figured we might want to hang at Sal’s on Saturday? Would love to get Buddha and others involved…
