Slow News Day Tuesday: The New Season's Resolutions Edition

Ladies and gentlemen, we have almost made it. Today marks the last Tuesday before the Tuesday before the start of college football season. By this time next week, we will be back into our regular autumn routine, with polls and previews and predictions and suchlike, so this marks the final edition of "Slow News Day Tuesday" for 2011.

Accordingly, since this effectively is the year-end installment of this weekly feature, it seems only right that we should use this opportunity to give our new season’s resolutions. Let’s face it; whatever we did last year sure didn’t work, so we clearly need to mix it up a little bit this year.

For my part, I intend to apply Winston Churchill’s dictum more completely. I feel like I have that whole "magnanimity in victory" part pretty well nailed down, but I’m going to work on the "defiance in defeat" aspect this season. Since I seem perfectly capable of offending opposing fan bases entirely inadvertently, I see no reason not to be a jerk on purpose anytime the Georgia Bulldogs lose a football game.

What do you plan to do differently this autumn? Share your new season’s resolutions in the comments.

Go ‘Dawgs!
