Furlough, Pt. II: Day One

Hey everyone. As I have discussed before, Gannett's furlough program was extended into the second quarter and, as such, I am on unpaid leave this week.

I cannot blog. It's strictly prohibited.

I have pre-loaded daily blog posts so HOTTIES still can converse during my absence. Have a nice day.

Since you fashion yourself as some sort of horseman, what was your take on the Derby?

i like that the winner's owner hitched his horse trailer to his pickup, drove it to kentucky and won the derby.

9:25 AM  
Blogger Criminal Type said...

I think it's an awesome development. The Derby is one race. The term "upset" has its origins in thoroughbred racing.

Upset was the only horse to beat Man O' War.

Anything can happen when the track is wet. See: Sea Hero, Lil E. Tee.

It would seem that JGT would be allowed to do voluntary posts. The attorneys are probably worried about some kind of liability that could arise.

Back in the day, I turned down a law school scholarship/work offer from a top construction law firm. Got several close friends that are attorneys. The friends are OK, but I hate our legal system that ensures attorney neccesity through overly complicated rules/liability issues.

Sorry for the soapbox moment...now..off to church.

Yesterday, Xaff said he didn't understand a lot of our posts. I thought I would try posting in Korean to see if that would help.

It is hilarious how much gets lost in translation when you go English->Korean and then back to English using google translation.

Good morning to our Dear Leader, first out of the gate yesterday and apparently euthanized before the first turn. I hope all the Hotties have a great day. I do not like it when JGT does not get paid.

translated into Korean, then back to English ends up as...

don't worry, Michael. Afternoon and evening meals will be heavily weighted (literally) towads fudge sticks, "nabs", and similar goodies.

And on my day off tomorrow, I'll have a 1/3 lb bacon cheeseburger at Sutton's Drug Store.

Salad was the only thing edible in the cafe. The entree was some liver stuff. I don't eat viscera.

I'd heard rumors that Bruce was playing Land of Hope & Dreams. Haven't had a chance to talk to my next door neighbor to find out if it was true. Human Touch is a great one, too.

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

I had the opportunity to chat the old-fashioned way with JGT yesterday when we met so I could give him the resolution.

For someone who will be spending the next week off the payroll, he was surprisingly calm. He was frustrated, yet controlled. Of course, he was accompanied by Wifey and daughter -- what a cutie, she was.

He was rightly excited about the award he won for journalistic excellence. I presume Wifey will leave an extensive list of chores for him. Maybe he'll look in on us as a lurker. It's up to us to fan the flames that keep this place so hot.

Let's be honest ... a long snapper will never win the Heisman Trophy. It's just not going to happen.

So what is doable?

How about an award for the nation's top long snapper -- akin to the Thorpe, the Groza, etc.

We should name it for the first snapper to gain popularity at Auburn -- Brian Brinsfield. Of course, Coach Dye could never get his name correct, so the award should be ...

The Brainsworth Award

ehyou - Good Morning!!! I absolutely love your avatar. It always makes me smile.

tangent to the James Gang, does anyone else out there have Mary Measle & the Fabulous Retreads in there tunes?

Gotta love the Chief.

Doc - I'm absolutely unfamiliar with who you just mentioned, so no I don't have them.

Good Monday morning, Hotties!

Jet, I was thinking the same thing about TarHeel.

Seanzie, it's worse than ever. I have now resorted to just lining myself up WAY left! LOL

TarHeel, War Eagle!

Easier said than done, TarHeel! I really need to take some lessons, but I just don't feel like it.

Blogger Sean said...

Well Luv I have the opposite problem, I pronate too much and end up hooking the ball usually, which is odd for a righty, but so it goes. My golf instructor at Auburn spent 2 weeks teaching me how to set up like a normal righty would slice...funny how things work.

Furlough = BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

what has happened to our AU baseball team? talk about tanking it? yikes!

oh, and good morning everyone.

7:34 AM  
Blogger Sean said...

Scottie, it's all about the pitching. It's not very good.

7:35 AM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

nope. not good at all.

is it too early for Diet Coke #2?

7:39 AM  
Blogger Sean said...

The Braves need to spend some money, speaking of Baseball. When everyone is healthy, they have a solid team. The problem is their depth outside of their first five pitchers and line up isn't very good. They need to get some 3 out guys and get rid of some of these long men who aren't worth much, i.e. Bennett, Carlyle.

THT, It's never too early for DC, there's not much to it.

That weather that hit the Gump is heading Macon-way. Looks pretty nasty.

7:44 AM  
Blogger gatiger said...

ehyou (chief) - it ain't much better a couple hours north of you either from what I hear.

7:47 AM  
Blogger Jet Can't Wait for Football said...

I'm convinced the bullpen for AU is comprised of GaTiger, Digger, THT and me.

This is the equivalent of 87 octane, 89 octane, 93 octane, and lard.

7:48 AM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

Sean, i agree on the Braves. they were up 2-3 runs yesterday when i went out to clean the garage. i thought Jo-Jo was doing pretty good but the Astros finally got to him. i guess back-to-back good starts were too much for him. :(

7:53 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

lard burns clean, right?

7:55 AM  
Blogger gatiger said...

Jet - I don't know about the rest of your aforementioned crew but this here reliever can bring some heat. I've been pitching alot of baseballs lately and I'm absolutely blowing it past 'em. I've pitched a veritable No Hitter. Oh sure, some of you are bound to say, 'but gatiger, you're pitching against your 2 year old son.' Well, while that may be a valid statement, it just doesn't matter. That boy can swing a bat and he's bigger than most other boys his age.

So, leave me alone.

Ga Tiger, I have a nasty 2 seamer, a decent change and an "exploding slider...says the middle school team I help out.

Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

after busting my shoulder while skiing 10 years back, the only thing I can throw now is a tantrum.

8:01 AM  
Blogger Sean said...

A Tantrum is a pretty legit wakeboarding trick, THT. You should be proud of yourself.

8:02 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

yikes, Sean. I didn't know. My tantrums are confined to land. I don't do deep water. I swim like a concrete block.

8:04 AM  
Blogger Sean said...

You should YouTube the tantrum, it's a cool looking trick. One of my really good friend's brothers almost died attempting to do one, but they were able to revive him after paddles and CPR.

TarHeel, you're too hard on yourself.

8:10 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

well, that's something I'll never try! I'll stick to catching some air on the mountain.

8:12 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

Luv, you're right. Maybe I don't swim as bad as a concrete block. Perhaps it's more like I have a ball & chain attached to each extremity.

I consider it amazing, shocking, impossible that Auburn has gone -- and will go -- this long between trips to the SEC baseball tournament.

2003? Seriously?

8:38 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

good morning Criminal! Great to have you here.

8:39 AM  
Blogger Criminal Type said...

How does that happen?

It's shameful. Just get out of the bottom third of the league. I mean, Stephen Hawking is married. So was Dennis Johnson.

8:40 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

my adjectives re: AU baseball... embarrassing, unacceptable, disturbing

8:41 AM  
Blogger Criminal Type said...

They have a swell stadium. Not the SEC's best anymore, but it's still in the top half.

They have a fine overall athletic department and baseball, for the most part, gets what it needs financially.

They have a swell recruiting area. Alabama and Georgia are teeming with good college players.

I don't get it.

CT...
I couldn't agree more. While not always the national powerhouse, AU has always been a solid top-half of the conference team. Generally respectable and competitive. 6 years is a long time to be in a slide, I didn't realize it had been that long.

8:46 AM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I'm just glad to see that there are still some GWAR supporters out there. Rock on CT.

I don't feel the need to conform to society's opinions about "good" music. I just follow my spirit and allow my body to be absorbed by the melodies.

Ministry has great melodies.

great lyrics. i have no idea what they mean but who cares?!

lyrics are so unimportant to me. Sing about burnt toast, I don't care. Just make the music good.

I am seeing reports that DeAngelo Benton will wear #5 in the fall. That means Tommy Trott will not. Any info on this anyone?

Maybe Tommy will wear my orange prototype AU #5 and DeAngelo will wear old school #5.

the NBA? what's that?

i actually watched the 4th quarter of the Bulls/Celtics game Sat. nite. i dunno why.
