Egad! Is it Wednesday already? There's no time for pleasantries and formalities, then . . . let's just get right down to business. Here's what you need to know as you get ready to face your day:
- Last night, inspired by the conflicting opinions of a pair of fellow college football webloggers, I asked the question, "Is 2006 the Year of the Dog?" Let me know what you think.
- This is a bit belated on my part, but A.C. Evans, that lucky 'Dawg, got to go to four games in three days and his observations largely mirrored The Realist's. For his part, Jmac tried to go, but he was turned away at the gate.
Are you ready for some super-regional?
- In response to a comment from Paragon SC, I offered my thoughts on how my wife influences how I root as a fan. Paragon SC has offered his own thoughts upon the subject . . . as it relates to his wife, not mine, that is.
- Is Orson Swindle a closet soccer fan? If so, he has just been outed. Meanwhile, MGoBlog has gone haywire as punishment for even mentioning soccer. Don't folks know that only L.D. is cool enough to write about soccer and get away with it?
I hear that Pele guy is pretty good. Is he by any chance playing in the World Cup?
- Paul Westerdawg has provided a bit of context to the Diamond Dogs' 2006 baseball season---noting, for instance, that Dave Perno has been a part of four of Georgia's eight N.C.A.A. tournament runs---and let us know that the super-regional is already sold out, so I hope Jmac bought his tickets early this time. For more on the Red and Black, check out The Realist.
- How do we rank the conferences from best to worst? Nathan has decided to go by mascot quality, which is as good a measurement as any. Check out his A.C.C. and Big East ratings.
Surely this monstrosity will top Nathan's list as the lamest mascot ever.
- Even while spending a few days at the beach, Dawg Bone remains the primary news source of Bulldog Nation and among the latest data to be reported there is the fact that Turner South will re-air a half-hour conversation with Mark Richt this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Be there or be square.
- Special thanks go out to a couple of Dawg Sports readers who were kind enough to leave comments yesterday. One left a nice note expressing gratitude for yesterday morning's reference to the D-Day anniversary and the other let me know that my weblog has readers as far away as Qatar. Thanks for stopping by, guys . . . and, Flight Doc Dawg, stay safe. We'll be praying for your safe return soon.
