It's Monday morning and it's practically July. I don't know where the weekend or the first half of the year went, but, since there's barely time to keep up with it all, I'll take a fast few seconds to lay it all out for you before your first cup of coffee even has time to cool:
- I remain on the outs with major league baseball, but I am giving serious consideration to the advice offered by fellow webloggers and loyal readers. I'll have something definitive to say about this soon, so keep the comments coming and stay tuned, but . . .
- . . . In the meantime, I have begun gearing up for college football season by offering a brief history of bowl games, which I began last evening and will be continuing over the course of the next several days.
That's the history of bowl games, not the history of bowls.
- Somewhere around the 60th ballot cast in the current Dawg Sports poll, Notre Dame finally received a vote for No. 1. Feel free to cast your vote, as well.
- Parker has the right attitude about the University of Georgia . . . but I don't believe I'd have worn those pants.
I prefer to go with the more elegant formal Georgia attire. (Photograph courtesy Varsity Vests.)
- Orson Swindle needs some "pro bono geek advice" and, while Burnt Orange Nation is collecting signatures, Sunday Morning Quarterback is practically taunting B.O.N. by offering previews of South Florida and Fresno State. Dude, South Florida? That's just mean.
- As usual, they're doing good work at The Blue-Gray Sky, where they are knocking Notre Dame's game day T-shirts, proposing substitute slogans, and breaking down the dollars and cents to show just how pathetically desperate the Georgia Tech football program has become.
Since I don't want to be accused of kicking the Yellow Jackets while they're down, I've decided to provide a public service to the students and alumni of the Georgia Institute of Technology by posting this picture to let them know what a good-looking American girl looks like.
That ought to bring you up to speed and get you ready to dive into your work week. Have at it.
