Here it is, Tuesday already and there's work to be done, so there's no excuse for wasting time. You don't have all day to get caught up on what's going on in the world, so here it is in a nutshell:
- The Diamond Dogs have a baseball game tonight against Kennesaw State, but the big news is that No. 11 Georgia will face No. 7 Kentucky this weekend with the Eastern Division title on the line. Although my confidence in the baseball Bulldogs has been the kiss of death for the Red and Black so far this season, I accepted a friendly wager offered by A Sea of Blue in the diaries.
- In the first installment of a two-part series, I have offered my list of odd fits between football coaches and their schools. While you're waiting for the follow-up posting from me, please feel free to share your thoughts on curious coaching hires I may have missed.
I'll be getting around to this guy in part two.
- The voting in the last Dawg Sports poll was concluded in the nick of time so that the new poll question could be posted promptly in response to the latest asinine proclamation from Michael Adams. Swamp Ball shares my view on this.
- I previously mentioned Burnt Orange Nation's BlogPoll roundtable discussion questions, to which I had offered my answers. Subsequent responses have been received from fellow Georgia weblogger I'm a Realist, fellow SportsBlogs Nation weblogger Bruins Nation, and armistice signatory and Michigan weblogger Maize n Brew. Dawg Sports got an honorable mention among the webloggers Bruins Nation would like to see switch sides and Dave was kind enough to offer the following praise, for which I am much obliged:
I'm always excited to see what he comes up with next, and his work always exceeds my expectations. Again, if you're not reading him, you should be.
Thanks, Dave. I really appreciate that.
As an added bonus, Dave gave an excellent answer to B.O.N.'s your-head-coach-has-to-step-aside-suddenly-and-you-get-to-pick-his-replacement question: Fresno State's Pat Hill. This is why Regis used to let contestants phone a friend before giving their final answer, because, if I'd read Dave's posting before offering my own answers, that would have been my answer, too.
Since I know Ian and Johnny were watching the season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" last night, too, I suppose I should mention that, although Ellen Pompeo is a perfectly lovely gal who is what Calista Flockhart could have been if only Calista Flockhart looked like a woman, Dr. McDreamy keeps blowing the call: Kate Walsh is not his second-best option.
Now you're all caught up and ready to dive into your work day. Have at it.
