The Official HABOTN Commendation

Could this be the greatest day in HABOTN history?

Thanks to our friend Jet, who is both a gentleman and a scholar, the HABOTN has been lauded via Alabama Senate Resolution No. 09-182.

Here is the text. If you'd like the official resolution in PDF form, I have uploaded it to sendspace.com and provided a link below.

Senate of Alabama
Montgomery, Alabama
Office of the Secretary

RESOLUTION


Commending Jay G. Tate and the HABOTN for Outstanding New Media Achievement



By Senator French


WHEREAS, with utmost admiration and appreciation, we recognize the Hottest Auburn Blog on The Net (HABOTN), which has established itself as the premier web site for supporters of Auburn University to glean information about athletics, engage in good-natured debate and develop friendships with like-minded fans throughout the nation and world; and

WHEREAS, Jay G. Tate, who covers the Auburn beat for the Montgomery Advertiser, launched the HABOTN on March 1, 2006, at 6:36 p.m., as a vehicle to provide readers a way to interact with him and each other on daily posts, thereby leading to thought-provoking commentary by partakers of the blog, where are known individually and collectively as "hotties"; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Tate has posted more than 1,200 items on HABOTN since its inception, leading to more than 1,000,000 comments from Hotties, not including their participation in widely anticipated online chats, known as "Campfires," where many issues of importance to the Hotties are thoroughly vetted; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Tate, with good nature and great patience, tolerated the antics of merry band of Hotties, who have strayed into areas far afield from Auburn University athletics, such as employment issues at Boston College and the threat posed to society by puppets; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Tate has selflessly shared the stage with numerous HABOTN followers by creating the "Ring of Fire," which is a Hall of Fame of HABOTN posters who have exemplified excellence and who, along with the tireless efforts of Mr. Tate, have helped elevate the HABOTN to its place as a world leader in new media; now therefore

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE OF THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA,
That with immense pleasure and great pride we commend the HABOTN for its contributions to rational, entertaining discussion of Auburn University athletics and the edification of fellowship among its devotees, and we direct that a copy of this resolution shall be provided to Jay G. Tate as a token of our appreciation and respect.

I hereby certify that the above is a true, correct and accurate copy of Resolution No. 09-182, filed with the Senate of Alabama on April 29, 2009.


(signed)
McDowell Lee
Secretary of Senate

We may never know the real story of who you got to write this for you but I guess that's not important now. Excellent job getting this through the system.

JGT - I offer congratulations and thanks yet again. Even on days where nothing is going on you've provided a place for us to gather and have fun.

Thanks for wasting more of my time JGT. I just bookmarked TFLN. It is comedy gold.

Some of my favorites:

(414): hey its robert, we just made out in the backyeard. i'm inside now and you should come to the bathroom and meet me.

(601): Are you drinking alone?

Words are inadequate at times like this. And in keeping with the first installment of a Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens said it best though: " It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."

You Jay G. Tate are the modern Charles Dickens.

The People for the Eradication of Puppets PAC has been called a terrorist cell by some. Some call it a vigilante group. I just call it a group of citizens committed to making this country safe, whatever the cost.

What I call it probably isn't that popular because it takes me a lot longer to say it than the other two descriptions I listed, and America has a short attention span.

2:58 PM

It's decidedly an aggressive move, Monica.

Because you live out of state, you have no reason to know that Alabama's laws concerning PACs have a certain morally casual attitude, so to speak.

So we can make them official, giving them the appearance of legitimacy, but we can do whatever we want to do after that.

Harri,
At least Margarita flavored premium malt beverage (not wine cooler) gives the impression of a drink with tequila, so I think you're safe.
Smirnoff Twisted IV Wild Grape premium malt beverage gives the impression that it contains vodka... so that is a little manly.

Nah ... it was done quick and on the down low ... kinda like a legislative pay raise.

matt, i'd be afraid for that bunch to rewrite anything that might be permanent.......

weagle- it should be. I drank PBR once and only once. I thought i was going to have a major accident the next day

4:45 PM

Thought Harrison would like this:

In Alaska law, even though it is legal to hunt a bear, it is illegal to wake a bear and take a picture for photo opportunities.

we drank it at AU when we didn't have anymore books to sell to get enough money for decent beer. Sounds desparate.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

that ought to be legal Prowler...natural selection should be able to run it's course

weagle- our crappy beer of choice in college was "the beast" light

4:49 PM  
Blogger weagle83 said...

Prowler, that's a good law if you don't have a BIG telephoto lens.

Blogger Prowler said...

in Alabama- It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.

So much for my weekend plans!

Blogger weagle83 said...

Harrison, you're probably a young man, suprised they would still have PBR around. Think it was on it's last legs in late 70's early 80's.

They're very good at keeping things on the down-low....now did they voice vote it in like the pay raise?

Although something of that magnitude really should have been read at length. I'll have to discuss that with the Assistant Secretary of the Senate. He's slipping to let things like that fall through the cracks. :)

weagle, they have made a small comeback recently. Supper Club used to sell them for 1 dollar.

for some reason the comeback never really caught on. could be the explosive diarrhea

5:03 PM

I'd say that had something to do with it.

FYI: I have won the Paula S. Moore Gold Medal Award for "excellence in performance" from the Advertiser.

It's the higher honor available at the MA, so that's a good thing.

The HABOTN is a big part of that, of course, and I'm grateful for your steadfast support!

Good article about AU being running back U. They rank AU 5th. Interesting read if you are into that stuff.

Speaking of Alabama's constitution, I once heard on the radio that the Alabama State Constitution is like 40 times longer than the US constitution and one of the longest in the world. I kid you not. I am not Franklining with you. I actually heard this on the radio here in Columbia, SC; not while I was in Alabama.

For years and years I pondered why this was so. Sure, it could be that it is because the people of Alabama deserve the bestest constitution ever and everyone knows that bigger is better.

I came up with a different possibility. Seeing that most northerners think we are all illiterate, I think whoever wrote the thing sought to prove a point.

They have tried to consolidate the constitution several times, but there are a great many obstacles associated with that task.

Thanks jhag. I think there is no doubt the Tiger Prowl has been a success. It is nice to see Auburn in the national headlines, especially without Charles Barkley involved with the story.

6:47 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Awk, I don't know about that. You know, they say they throw the book at people. They could mean the constitution and judging by the size, it could be a death sentence.

I'll pass on the Constitutional Reform discussion ... there are reasons fer and agin'.

But I will jump in line to gradulate Coarch Jay G for his Outstanding Achievement Award for Outstanding Achievement.

Go Jaytor!

Auburn's rolling on the recruiting trail, the HABOTN's getting resoluted, and the bammers are getting jealous.

It has been a great week. Congrats JG.

Just me, the laptop and the Team Dog at the Hangar.

Looks like some hockey, hoops, and anything else I can figure out are in my future.
