Completely Unrelated: Dawg Sports in Contention for Nobel Bacon Prize

All of you know that I am helping to coach Luella High School's Mock Trial team. All of you also know that I have an unhealthy relationship with bacon, so much so that I have seriously considered wrapping a slice of cherry pie in bacon before eating it.

I'm totally on board for honoring thy father and mother, neither stealing nor murdering, and not coveting either thy neighbor's wife or his ox, but I draw the line at the prohibition against pork products.

I am pleased to report that, earlier today, these two independent aspects of my life happily converged.

One of the students on the team works at the local Chick-fil-A. (No, not the one who thinks my grey suits match my grey hair.) During a recent practice session, I asked her if she had it in her power to have added to the menu a food item I first envisioned in July 2006 . . . a Chick-fil-A sandwich with bacon.

Two great tastes that taste great together.

She indicated that a customer could place a special order for a Chick-fil-A sandwich with bacon. She also indicated that she would be working the evening shift at the drive-through window tonight.

Needless to say, I pulled up to the Chick-fil-A drive-through window at about 6:00 this evening and got myself a Chick-fil-A sandwich with bacon.

I have now officially forgiven Truitt Cathy for renaming the Peach Bowl.

Were it up to me, it would now be called the Chick-fil-A with Bacon Bowl.

Meet the grand marshal of the Chick-fil-A with Bacon Bowl parade.

Do yourself a favor . . . sometime this week, go to a Chick-fil-A, order yourself a combo number one, and tell 'em to slap some bacon on your sandwich. You'll be glad you did.

Go 'Dawgs!
