If you're like me, you have a busy week ahead of you and there's no time to waste, so here's what you need to know to get you caught up on what you may have missed before your coffee even cools:
- I don't know what your Mother's Day weekend was like, but the Diamond Dogs were busy beating Georgia Tech on Thursday and beating Auburn on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to extend their winning streak to 11 games and set up an S.E.C. showdown with Kentucky starting this Thursday.
- Burnt Orange Nation has asked some pertinent questions, to which I have endeavored to offer answers. I also had a question of my own, as I asked the readers of Dawg Sports to share their stories of how they came to be fans of their favorite teams. You're welcome to share your thoughts in the comments or, better yet, in the diaries.
It's a little too early on a Monday morning for a color picture of Mary-Louise Parker, so those of you who frequent Dawg Sports in search of her will just have to make do with this.
- Speaking of the diaries, Sean of Michigan Sports Center and Pride of Detroit fame has offered unexpected evidence of the possible success of The Movement in his Picture of the Week, which bears more than a passing relationship to the current poll question.
- A.C. Evans reports that the Redcoat Band is going to China and A.C. has additional information on the Great Wall tour. This is pretty cool, although I must confess that I am concerned about the speed of the boat that will take the Redcoats to Red China.
Picture the Lone Bugler standing here and playing the Battle Hymn at sunrise. If that doesn't make the hair on your arms stand up, you're reading the wrong weblog.
- The rankings are out and Georgia is first in the S.E.C. and No. 8 overall. No, I'm not talking about football.
- In the South, there's more to life than just football. As Nico points out, there's also religion and literature. That's in addition to the benefits alluded to in the preceding item, of course.
