Cocktail Thursday: Kentucky Edition.

The Bulldogs Look To Get Back On The Horse In Thoroughbred Country.

I was persona non blogga last week*, and in my absence ChuckDawg pitched in to provide you a great cocktail to get you through the bye week. But now, like the Bulldogs, I'm back on the field of play.

Let's get this straight, Kentucky is really, really bad. They were bad before they began starting a true freshman at quarterback and got clobbered 49-7 by Arkansas. There is no logical reason why the Georgia team we've seen every week of the season except two weeks ago doesn't walk away with this one.

But logic has nothing to do with it. The only thing worse than letting a team like South Carolina beat you up is letting them beat you twice. The bye week came at precisely the right time for the Classic City Canines. When you get physically dominated on the offensive front, and when your most veteran defense in recent memory looks like it is composed of true freshmen, you need answers. Lots of answers.

I don't have all the answers for the Georgia coaches. But i do have the answer for you if you're getting ready to watch a Bulldog football game played in Lexington, Kentucky, the home of the original American spirit.

The answer . . . is bourbon. The answer is always bourbon. Okay, not true. I am pretty sure bourbon is not the answer when performing neurosurgery or teaching kindergarten. But other than that, bourbon is an acceptable answer. Feel free to use this space to discuss your favorite bourbons, your favorite uses for bourbon, or why bourbon is superior to all other spirits while waiting for Houston to take on SMU at 8, and Oregon to score 452 on Arizona State at 9 while dressed like one of the Transformers. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!!

*Okay, if you must know I and my good friend Irwin Fletcher were touring with the Stones as part of our Death Cab/Facts Of Life tribute band "Meth Lab For Tootie." I can't guarantee it won't happen again. We're huge in Prattville.
