There's a whole great big blogosphere out there beyond Dawg Sports and here is what is going on in it these days:
- Over at Burnt Orange Nation, Peter Bean has put together The Ultimate 2006 College Football Road Trip. While I would quarrel with his choice of Iowa State at Texas on September 23---that is, after all, the day Colorado plays at Georgia---he does include the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, so all is forgiven.
- The Realist has some things to say about baseball, as does Ian, the latter of whom may have quoted me . . . kind of . . . in a manner of speaking . . . I think.
I may have said something to the effect that living in Athens gave a fellow a skewed view of how many good-looking women there are in the world.
- In honor of the Passover, The M Zone posted a brief yet intriguing piece on Jewish football stars who played for the Michigan Wolverines. That got me thinking about Georgia Bulldog greats descended from the twelve tribes of Israel. Any thoughts on this interesting question would be most welcome and should be shared in the comments section below.
- Following a lengthy absence, L.D. is back and in rare form, offering his thoughts on everything from the G-Day game to bloggers' biases. Of particular note is this gem:
My dog, who yesterday ate a pile of those caterpillar looking pollen thingies and who hasn't been able to figure out how to walk through a swinging door, could write this crap.
- Check out MGoBlog, where you will find The (Friedrich) Nietzsche Theory of the Heisman. No, I'm not kidding.
- This is a bit off topic from our usual college football fare, but Doug Gillett, who was put in a pensive mood by the prospects for war with Iran, provided a very detailed and informative article on nuclear weapons.
"Do not be fooled . . . zis is just Doug's vay of avoiding haffing to post ze pictures from ze Bloggerpalooza!"
- As if the prospect of global thermonuclear war wasn't enough of a bummer, Donnie Trismegistus brought the room down still farther by reminding us all how badly the Bulldogs underachieved during the Jim Donnan era, although I continue to maintain that the 1992 Georgia squad was the one whose failure to win a national title was most inexplicable.
- Fortunately, along came Xon and brought us some good news . . . in fact, he brought us the Good News with this reminder of the significance of the Easter season, which is well taken this Good Friday.
