How did it get to be Wednesday already? All right, the week is slipping by even more quickly than expected, so there's no time for the usual niceties. Here's what you need to know while that first cup of coffee begins to take effect:
- The Diamond Dogs had to hang on to win against Kennesaw State but win they did, so the Georgia baseball squad will head into tomorrow's series-opening game against league-leading Kentucky riding a 12-game winning streak.
- Michael Adams holds the land speed record for asinine proclamations by a pompous windbag, so it is only right that the clearinghouse for pertinent information in Bulldog Nation, the Dawg Bone, has provided an open mike for communicating with Mike. Be careful, though . . . if Il Duce reads your critical comments, he might just call your boss to complain.
Michael Adams exhorts his underlings not to refer to the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party by its proper name.
- I followed up on my initial story about odd coaching fits with what amounts to the odd coaching fits hall of fame. Check it out and let me know what you think.
- I'm a Realist has put Florida and Auburn under the microscope and given us his impressions of both sets of Stalwarts in Orange and Blue (or, as I abbreviate it, "S.O.B.s").
The Realist fails to cover such crucial intangibles as how confidently the respective coaches of the two teams raise their arms, but he analyzes everything else pretty well.
- How did you become a fan? The question was first asked at Bruins Nation, but answers have been provided by Johnny and by Paragon SC. What led you to root for the team you support?
- While I'm on the subject of Bruins Nation, I should mention his recent posting on U.C.L.A.'s out-of-conference scheduling, in which he mentions (among other possibilities) the prospects for a series between the Bulldogs and the Bruins, which would have to be a more popular option in Bulldog Nation than a showdown between the 'Dawgs and the Ducks.
