Tiger Prowl video

Hey everyone. The AHSAA has postponed all athletic events because of a possible swine flu H1N1 outbreak in Huntsville.

I'm scheduled to cover the Edgewood-Marengo AISA Class 2A baseball championship game today. I'm guessing that grudge match is still on, so I'll put my life on the line today and cover the event.

TIGER PROWL: The Advertiser's video expert, Shannon Heupel, was on the scene yesterday when Auburn's caravan rolled into Prattville.

The auto-play videos now have an annoying advertisement that prevents me from embedding them without said advertisement blaring into your eardrums.

I'll spare you that annoyance: CURTIS LUPER PLAYING NARRATOR

If a certain document is made available to me today, where would you be to collect such a document?

It's gotta stay, THT.

I think it's sweet. Brings a tear to my eye.

I think Air Supply can be very sensuous, don't you?
No, Air Supply is sensual. People are sensuous.
Right. Sensual. That's what I meant. My name's JGT.

Probably in a town called "Elmore," which I didn't know existed until 8:54 a.m. I thought that was a county.

We're also having our annual newsroom awards today at 4. I'm sure I won't win one because, as you know, blogs don't matter.

Maybe we can make an exchange after that?

9:04 AM  
Blogger gatiger said...

You do too matter JGT!

9:05 AM  
Blogger Jet Can't Wait for Football said...

Would it be safe to take it to the front desk and leave it there, and advise you of such?

9:05 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

There allegedly is an H1N1 outbreak in Huntsville. That made me find the AHSAA decision a little less ignorant.

Has Michael checked in today?

Blogger ehyou said...

JGT, I see a day in the future that blogs are all there is. You're just ahead of the storm.

9:06 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Jet: NO.

The front-desk people don't know who I am. I'm not even 100% sure we have front-desk people anymore.

Let's make an exchange in E. Vaughngomery somewhere.

Blogger Jet Can't Wait for Football said...

Of course, in a year, when the Advertiser is an online only product, I guess blogs will matter since Auburn athletics will be the only thing published based on current activities at Ol' Grandma.

We will confab later.

They couldn't have been more wrong.

I'm a little snippy today.

Hasn't diluted my love for Air Supply, though.

"Just As I Am," the Aussie duo's hit from late summer 1985, was the inspiration behind my first mash session.

i used to stock groceries at a food world in prattvegas at night. the fm station they played over the intercom would play about one air supply song an hour. it was a perfect hell.

New Year's Eve 1984: My soon-to-be-bride was living in a duplex in Auburn. The opposite side was occupied by a very nice lesbian couple. We were planning a nice party for our friends to celebrate the dawning of 1985. My big sis was in town, and we had spent all day decorating, preparing finger food, icing down the beer/wine, etc.

Unbeknownst to us, the nice lesbian couple next door were in the process of breaking up. At about 6pm, just before our guests began to arrive, one of them stormed out. This apparently sent her no-longer-significant-other into a state of severe depression, which she decided to share with us by turning up her stereo (which was against the other side of the shared wall of the duplex) and playing "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All".

Over and over and over and over and over.

After 2 hours of this, our party gave up. We ended up ringing in the New Year at Harry's.

I've absolutely despised Air Supply ever since.

9:38 AM  
Blogger Jet Can't Wait for Football said...

But Fearless, you still have a warm spot for Harold's El Sophisticado, right?

9:40 AM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I've said it before...
Harry's was the last stop on my bachelor party pub crawl. It will always be held dear.

9:45 AM  
Blogger Jet Can't Wait for Football said...

Ehyou ...

I don't know many who went to Harry's, but I know a lot of who ended up there.

Bachelor parties are not a good idea the night before wedding.

9:48 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

Oh, before I buckle down to work...

Thanks for sharing that great video with us, JGT, and for sparing us from the loud commercial.

After watching the video, I'm super excited for the future of Auburn long as we're not recruiting their punter.

Please pass along my appreciation to Shannon Heupel.

9:50 AM  
Blogger Jet Can't Wait for Football said...

How about ones that start at 9 a.m. before the 1 p.m. wedding? Is that OK?

9:50 AM  
Blogger Harrison said...

yes, bachelor parties have to be at least one week prior to weddings. Preferrably 2 weeks

9:51 AM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Jet, that's just called golf before the wedding. I did.

Oh yes, "that li'l ol' French place" was near and dear to my heart.

It just wasn't the vibe we were looking for that night. Oh well.

And for the record, while Harry's ended up an OK place in which to celebrate New Year's Eve, I can also state for the record it was an absolutely dreadful place to spend Christmas Eve, as I had done in '82.

Your scenario is acceptable. If you're still in the throes of drunkenness, you're fine. It's the post-drunk shakes, sweats, pukes, etc. that can break the deal.

Jay they banned the use of any "social networking" sites. When I try to go to the HABOTN website, I get a company warning. I would hate to arouse our Security! With the economic instability, I don't want to get on any "list", so I'll just use my phone. It's a little slower and definitely harder to type, but worth the inconvenience. I would hate not being able to keep up with the latest hottie news during the day.

An 80-year old man drove his brand new Corvette out of the dealership.

Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, then 100, 110, 120.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him,
blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."

The old gentleman paused. Then he said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a State Trooper and I thought you were bringing her back."

"Have a good day, Sir," replied the Trooper.

Fearless, the breaking up lesbians story was good stuff. One suggestion, when you tell a story about lesbians, you should always mention how hot each of the lesbians were, and whether you saw them kiss.
