Half Assed Live Blog on a Football Saturday

Went to the local to watch West Ham play this morning and was rewarded with a 4-1 win against Blackburn. It’s nice having a place that will open up at 10:00 (or earlier) to let you come in a watch. The best line was from an early arriving Arsenal fan, “How can you drink all day if you don’t start in the morning”

-Pittsburgh does not a have a good head coach.
-App. State is still good. LSU is no 2007 Michigan. Remember, App. Did not go undefeated in their own I-AA conference last year.

Beamer is making HUGE MISTAKE by not playing his best QB. Beamer Ball won, Skip Holtz style. GO PIRATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UVA is one of the prettiest places in the country. I wouldn’t want to be a Wahoo today. We honeymooned in Charlottesville and observed the annual July 4th citizenship ceremony they have there every year. When I think of retirement, Charlottesville is high on my list. Nothing good is going to happen there today. Groh is another one of those good assistants that has shown himself not be able to run a big time program. Too many good players not to have better results. They have been competitive but UVA fans expect more. Especially with VT having such a good decade.

-#7 for UVA has calmed down a good bit and is leading them on a nice drive at the end of the first.
-I got more texts for the ECU win than I get when trying to set up a poker game. Is it too early to start planning for the Orange Bowl? I guess we need to wait until the WVU game.
-Getting ready for the big game tonight. Clemson/Alabama. Most overrated coach versus most disappointing coach. Who will flinch first?


-Fantastic ribs on the smoker tonight.
-Tommy’s teams usually don’t collapse until much later in the season.
