So what will we do today?

Hey everyone. It's another warm, overcast day in lower Alabama. I'm good with that. I wonder what it's like in Tampa?

LSU has just defeated Kentucky in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals. That rush of wind you hear are the UK fans exiting the St. Pete Times Forum for the last time this year. If you thought the stands were desolate before, just wait.

AUBURN HOOPS: The Tigers (21-10) play Florida tonight at approximately 8:30 CDT. Auburn is in dire need of at least a modest run here to enhance its resume. I don't think the team has yet to accomplish enough to earn an NCAA bid.

I'll be here as often as I can during the game. We'll start a new thread.

(FYI: The tournament is being broadcast on Dish Network in HD on channel 443.)

AUBURN BASEBALL: The Tigers (11-4) open SEC play this weekend at Tennessee. We're hoping that Scottie B., a Knoxville resident, will be on hand to provide the real story from the Volunteer State.

Auburn enters the series with the second-most home runs in the nation with 33. Two of the Tigers, sophomore outfielder Trent Mummey (aka "Mums") and junior infielder Joseph Sanders, rank among the nation’s top home run hitters. Mums has eight; Sanders has seven.

Tonight's game starts at 6 p.m.

yeah, my peeps up there in the land of Blue aren't happy. at all.

the weather is really ugly right now. we're expecting light rain and first pitch temps in the 40's. i don't have access to the HABOTN on my phone but i'll try to recap what i see assuming there is a game tonite.

2:36 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

JayG. The game tonight might not start on time. Maybe it'll start late enough to live blog it.

2:42 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

The HABOTN will buy you an iPhone soon, Scottie.

2:48 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

SWEEEEETTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

2:55 PM  
Blogger michael said...

There needs to be a word put in the HABOTN dictionary for when you don't realize a new thread is up until 45 minutes later.

Blogger scott from tucson said...

mr b. in teen., would twittering work in that situation?

2:58 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

is "dumb" sufficient

3:01 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

scott from T, BRILLIANT! i can do Twitter! i guess you'd actually have to sign up to follow me or something. not sure how that works.

i just sent a test twitter. only got 3 followers. we'll see how that works out.

3:06 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I think I just subscribed, Scottie.

3:08 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Harrison - Sure, from now on if you call someone "dumb," it means they didn't know there was a new blog post. Mark it.

3:12 PM

I jumped on the bandwagon Scottie. No Pressure... I just know everyone would hate to see Scottie B on a stick.

3:18 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

JG, i'm sending out another twitter test. let me know if you get it.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Hornet said...

those of us who are twitterless will need baseball updates from you twitterers

3:20 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

thanks for the support j-z.

3:21 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Twitter? I barely know her! I don't know what that means.

3:32 PM  
Blogger j-z said...

Send out another test Scotty.

3:35 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

I'm beginning to hate twitter as much as facebook.

3:37 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

j-z, did you adjust my status to allow updates?

3:38 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Facebook hates Twitter? Oooooo, online addictive application controversy! Awesome!

3:39 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Be sure to set phasers to stun, otherwise the update may not come through.

3:39 PM  
Blogger michael said...

So is this strictly a nerdy engineering thing, or are any of you aware of people celebrating "Pi Day"? I am tellin ya, there are some people around here who are pretty excited about it.

3:40 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

SCottie, what is your Twitter ID?

Harrison, the anti-technology stuff is getting tiresome. We get it. You don't like facebook and twitter. Saying it 5,000 times doesn't make it more true.

Peeps who don't have Twitter, I can post Scottie's information here. No problem.

3:41 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

Harrison, i only Twitter because i care.

actually, i've never really used it myself. i only had it set up to get JG's updates. i'm trying to take a crash course. i can log in from my phone and update no problem. just hoping it comes through.

Sure it does Jay G. It's like pressing the elevator button a hundred times. It makes it get there faster

I think I am going to start a gibberish Twitter feed. Who would join it? Jay G, you in?

3:49 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I've gotcha now, Scottie.

I'm not going to work until 7 or so ... there will be no updates to the HABOTN until then.

3:49 PM

i think BC's new coach should send a twitter to his facebook friends about his new sweet gig.

Oh, about Puppet Hour... yeah, I am leaving at 4. So, you know, let's pretend this has been Puppet Hour.

Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

ok, gotta run. it's cool to have followers! ha!

i'll do my best on the updates. my phone should have enough juice to get a few in.

i'm off to Hooters first! peace out.

3:57 PM

Will you be doing updates from Hooters? That should be interesting.

Poor Scottie, having his dirty laundry scatted across the HABOTN.

Family blog, Michael.

I will resist channeling my Walter Sobchek in the diner speech and accept your deletion, Jay G. I thought that was a pretty good one though!

It was good.

Blogger Harrison said...

who's mom wouldn't be proud of them once she found out he had over 12 internet "friends"

4:12 PM  
Blogger michael said...

When you put "friends" in quotation marks, you do that as a sign of respect, right Harrison?

4:13 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

A tip of the fedora, as Charles Goldberg would say. His dad was a regionally renown haberdasher and, surely, passed along his love of chapeaus.

If someone would articulate the benefits to me, I would like to consider joining this 'twitter' thing that all the hip kids are doing.

Are you talkin gibberish now too, Jay G?

4:19 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Denny: by joining my Twitter feed, you can receive really interesting daily updates straight into your cell phone! Or just email, or something. Either way, join now!

4:20 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

yes Michael friends in quotations are the highest level of companionship

4:20 PM  
Blogger michael said...

When I googled "a tip of the fedora" to find out what it means, the first thing that comes up is an article by Goldberg. Impressive.

4:21 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Alright, I'm out. You guys made me late. Thanks a lot.

4:22 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

Michael, you have convinced me. I do I join and be awesome like you and Jay G?

4:24 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Denny, Twitter is a good way to keep up with HABOTN/Auburn things on the go. It's kinda like text messaging, but it's free and doesn't count against your text-message limit.

4:29 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I'm going to be at a concert tonight, anyone want to twitter the basketball game updates? No? Yes!!!!

That would of course mean I would have to use my twitter account for the first time.

4:50 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

scottie b, thanks is advance for your twitter updates....

still considering a stop in Tampaland for the Auburn game tonight. If I do, I'll live blog it.I'm going to be driving all night as it is, so I'm undecided.

5:12 PM  
Blogger scott from tucson said...

i think i have everything configured correctly for the twittering-i've been folowing the wrong scotties for some time now. when you get a chance, send out another test tweet (doesn't that sound funny!).

tubbs at uk inherited some talent, if memory serves, but didn't do much with it--and didn't replace it with much (imo). i'm not a gillespie fan, but is 2 years enough?

Michael,

From last thread, did you see the interview. Why Jim Cramer goes on The Daily Show after all of the trash Jon Stewart's talked about him, I don't know. Stewart was as well prepared to destroy him as I've ever seen anyone be, ever. I watched the whole interview online yesterday. It was amazing, and really brought to light a lot of things about the financial media that I had no idea about. I will never watch CNBC again. EVER.

Jon Stewart should be world ruler. Seriously.

No trip to Tampa for you, Jay G?

6:29 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

They wouldn't let Jay G go to Tampa because he would spend all their funds clubbin' in Ybor City

6:32 PM  
Blogger Hornet said...

Jay -- does the Advertiser just pick up the AP story covering the Auburn game?? How does that work?

6:38 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

That's what they did for the LSU game.

6:46 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

No trip for me. I was told that the Advertiser doesn't have enough coin to fund that trip.

I am the only full-time Auburn writer not at the tournament. Tim Gayle is the only full-time Alabama writer not at the tournament.

We'll run an AP story in the newspaper tomorrow.

7:02 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I used to (at least partially) fund some trips myself, but those days are over. My furlough week already "displaced" a chunk of money from the Tate bank account.

7:03 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

That's lame...biggest Auburn basketball game in years, and they can't afford to send a reporter.

I wonder if they'll run the AP story when we're in the final 4.. =)

7:10 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

If Auburn becomed the ultimate Cinderella and makes the Final 4 and the MA doesn't send Jay G, Every Hottie must send $2 to a pay pal account we set up to send him. I think there's enough of us where we could keep the costs low. I'm very much against paying for the internet, but that would be different. It would be for Jay G!

7:17 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

For those of you (like me) who can't get the game on TV, it's available free on Yahoo Sports.

I'd love to really HATAGATA but I'll lucky to last through the first half. What genius schedules games in the middle of the night?

Have you hated Bama today?
