Never put your Another Teams Hand

The University of Georgia did just that...put their another teams hand.

The past two weeks, the Bulldog Nation was...In the name of  "Larry Munson"...rooting for Tennessee and Arkansas!



This is where Georgia is now.   Georgia has to root for rivals 'cuz UGA  failed to take care of their own business.  Namely South Carolina...and Florida.

2 winnable games resulting in ugly losses.

Yes beat Missouri ...34-0.

But check this out:

Madea's Thanksgiving Rules

A re-post... from Thanksgivings past:


Madea's Thanksgiving Rules


1. Don't get in line asking questions about the food. "Who made the potato salad? Is there egg in there? Are the greens fresh? Is the meat in the greens turkey or pork? Who made the macaroni and cheese? What kind of pie is that? Who made it? Ask one more question and I will punch you in your mouth, knocking out all your fronts so you won't be able to eat anything.

2. If you can't walk or are missing any limbs, sit your butt down until someone makes your plate for you. Dinner time is not the time for you to be independent. Nibble on them pecans and walnuts to hold you over until someone makes you a plate.

3. If you have kids under the age of twelve, I will escort their little butts to the basement and bring their food down to them. They are not going to tear my house up this year. Tell them that they are not allowed upstairs until it's time for Uncle Butchie to start telling family stories about their mommas and papas. If they come upstairs for any reason except for that they are bleeding to death, I will tear their butts up and you better not ask why!

4. There is going to be one prayer for Thanksgiving dinner! JUST ONE! We do not care that you are thankful that your 13 year old daughter gave birth to a healthy baby or your nephew just got out of jail. The time limit for the prayer is one minute. If you are still talking after that one minute is up, you will feel something hard come across your lips and they will be swollen for approximately 20 minutes.

5. Finish everything on your plate before you go up for seconds! If you don't, you will be asked to stay your greedy butt home next year!

6. BRING YOUR OWN TUPPERWARE!! Don't let me catch you fixing yourself a plate in my good Tupperware knowing that I will never see it again! Furthermore, if you didn't bring anything over, don't let me catch you making a plate period or it will be a misunderstanding. And why are you making plates before you eat? You never bring a dish or offer a dime do you?

7. What you came with is what you should leave with!! Do not leave my house with anything that doesn't belong to you. EVERYBODY WILL BE SUBJECTED TO A BODY SEARCH COMING AND GOING OUT OF MY DOMAIN!!!

8. Do not leave your kids so you can go hopping from house to house. This is not a DAYCARE CENTER ! There will be a kid-parent roll call every ten minutes. Any parent that is not present at the time of roll call, your child will be put outside until you come and get him or her. After 24 hours, I will call CPS!

9. BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM BEFORE YOU COME INTO TOWN!! There will be no sleeping over at my house! You are to come and eat dinner and go home or to your hotel room. EVERYBODY GETS KICKED OUT AT 11:00 pm. You will get a 15 minute warning bell ring.

10. Last but not least! ONE PLATE PER PERSON!! This is not a soup kitchen. I am not trying to feed your family until Christmas dinner! You will be supervised when you fix your plate. Anything over the appropriate amount will be charged to you before you leave. There will be a cash register at the door. Thanks to Cousin

Alfred and his greedy family, we now have a credit card machine! So VISA and MASTERCARD are now being accepted. NO FOOD STAMPS OR ACCESS CARDS YET.

The "Catch"!

We saw it live!


For the Birds!

Leave it to our Atlanta lose a game.  But to lose ...the way they did?

Up 24-23 with 44 seconds left?  Calling needless timeouts?  Not able to stop Cleveland...once...on that final drive?

We're done!

A Tuskegee Salute! the Atlanta Falcons organization.

With all the bad going on in the NFL these days, this is very refreshing.

Atlanta...we applaud you!

Falcons to honor member of Tuskegee Airmen on Sunday

The Falcons will honor a living member of the Tuskegee Airmen during Sunday’s game vs. Cleveland.
According to the club’s website, the Falcons will recognize 98-year-old Edward Johnson, a sergeant in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II.
Johnson served with the 332nd Fighter Group and 477th Bombardment Group, serving as an instrument-flying instructor, the Falcons said.
The Tuskegee Airmen were African-American members of the Air Corps and the U.S. Army Air Forces whose ranks included pilots who flew bombing missions in World War II.
According to the Falcons, Johnson is a long-time fan of the club who has never attended a game. He will be accompanied by one of his daughters.
The ceremony will occur sometime during the first half, the Falcons said.

Thoughts...On A Friday

It is a Friday!

I am on vacation!

All is well with the world!

Five things.....I think I think:

1.  I think...I am better the "deep south"...than in Buffalo, NY.

2.  My trip to North Caroling...this Tuesday...will be..."Very Interesting".

3.  Don't think...I will be ...firing up the grill in Cary.

4.  I think...we need to leave by 8am or get to Cary before dark.

5.  I really, really...really...really...needed this vacation! 

Spare the Rod?

This Adrian Peterson thing has gone way too far.  How can another man or woman ...tell to discipline his own children?

To "whip"?  Or not "whip"?

Me?  I never had to spank...beat... or whip my daughter.  A stern look...was sufficient.  A talking to.

But not all children ...are the same.  My late stepson...Sam...was very much indifferent to a talking to.  The only thing he responded to...and understood was a swift blow to the chest. It got his attention.

I can remember growing up...I got a whipping or two...with an extension cord.  Hell,  back in the day...I remember all my Kindergarten teachers and 1st and 2nd grade teachers...having their "straps" and "paddles".

I think I turned out okay.   My siblings turn out okay.   No mass murderers...none of us in prison.

But back then there was no social media.  

But today....Is today.   A different world.  Watch what you do...for the whole world is watching.

I feel for Mr. Peterson.   He did to his son...what was done to him.  He was brought up where "whipping"...via...switches...was common.

Don't make it right.

Still...Is it right to take away a man's career?  Make it where he can't earn a living in his profession?

Cuz we disagree with his child rearing?

Spare the rod?

It's...Just the Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks...are just that.

Just...the Hawks.

Only the Hawks can lose to a Los Angeles Laker team...with only 1 win.

Only the Hawks can have a sold out arena...but 70%...rooting for the Lakers.

Only the Hawks...can make a 36 year old Kobe Bryant...look like a 26 year old ...Kobe.

Only the Hawks.

Why? "Gurley Man" Why?

An open letter to Todd Gurley:

Dear Todd,

We acknowledge you are an exceptional football player with extraordinary talents.  Fact is have never played an entire season.  Last year you got hurt.  This year you were suspended.  4 games.  You then...for reasons we cannot understand ...decided to come back and play in the final 3 games. 


An NFL running back has a career longevity of about 3.5 years.  You were going to be a 1st round draft pick...You should  have told Georgia...thanks...but no thanks.   "I have made the University millions of dollars...let me earn my degree...and move on the NFL."

But no! came back to play in a college football game...tore your ACL on your knee...will need surgery....and possibly...cost you and the family.....millions.

2 Bad Teams...1 Awful Game

Awful .... Awful...Awful.

That's what the NFC South is...that's what the Carolina Panthers..are..That's what the Atlanta Falcons are.

The Falcons tried to lose...The Panthers did lose.

At the end of the day...The Falcons are in 1st place!  Go figure.  They can't run the ball...can't stop the run...Gave up a 16-3 lead...

But...this is our NFL...On Any Given Sunday?


Can You Feel the Beat?

We almost forgot what a good drum beat...or drum line...sounded like.

Remember this classic "Last Battle" from the movie "Drumline"?
