Furlough, Pt. II: Day Two (Monday)

Hey everyone. As you know by now, I am on unpaid furlough this week as my parent company, Gannett, slugs its way through these difficult economic times.

As such, I am not able to blog. It's forbidden.

I have pre-loaded daily threads to pop up at 9 a.m. CDT so the conversations that make the HABOTN so delicious resume. Please don't be scared, angered or turned off my my parent company's difficulties. I'm very spendthrift.

Peace and love.

Brother Jet,

I need your help. The last three weeks, I have noticed a marked change in my attitude. I am really starting to "Hate Bammer", something I did not think I could do. I try not to hate, but rather appreciate the rivalry and the virtues of the University in spite of my choice of fandom. However, I feel this burning need to "Hate Bammer" with all I have.

What do you suggest as a course of action?

Mr. S. ...

I've been thinkin' and prayin' over your tormented soul. And I've searched the Good Book.

Turn with me to the seventh Proverb, startin' with verse 16 and finishin' with 19.

"There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."

That sounds like UAT to me, and if the Lord can hate those things, well, then it's good enough for me.

I can't make any decisions for you, but I'm here for you to support you.

Hatin' Bammers......For an ex- Bammer like me it went from dislike to HATE around the time they fired Mike Price and hired Shula. This is when the Bama spin machine started the "GOT 12" and "Tradishun" mantra.

Been lurking forever, but finally inspired to comment on the dog naming. May I suggest "Charles Barkey"? My neighbor has a Border Collie and it barks constantly at a volume of 11. At night it was so loud, the wife and I used to think it was in our bedroom. Fortunately, my neighbor and I have now agreed that he will put the dog in at night. They are sweet, extremely smart dogs. Make sure you have a big yard and plenty of doggy entertainment, though.

Wtf is a ghost ride?

While I really don't know in this particular context, however as far as I know ghost riding is:

1. Put the vehicle in D.
2. Exit the vehicle and walk (or dance) beside the vehicle while the vehicle crawls forward (engine running / idling)
3. Get back in and stop the vehicle.

Whilst it does not make any sense, it's supposed to be some kind of 'in' thing.

If that is what it is, you'd hear the bammers whine about it as an illegal recruiting tactic.

So I'm going through some older Facebook friend request today. Some of them ... I have never heard the name, they're not from my town, we don't share a school, etc.

I figure they're HOTTIES.

So I send one of these peeps the standard Are you a HABOTN poster?Dude comes back with some terse response basically saying I'm crazy for throwing acronyms at him like I'm somebody.

Oops. Buh-bye, friend.

wartiger - I'm really happy for you! That sounds really wonderful. It's always interesting to learn about different cultures, and how wrong they are compared to our own ;-)

I guess I don't get into who "clears" with the NCAA because I've seen too many Greg Smiths, Ryan Williamses, Chris Slaughters.

Get on the field, do something, then I'll pay attention.

Congrats on the safe trip and the new adventure. It is your mission, should you accept it, to spread the love of Auburn to the yankees.

I admit it bothers me that the local teams tend to use the red and white part more than the blue, but I'll still pull for them. I know they're not Bama.

The DC area is somehow still supporting 2 newspapers. There's even free commuter tabloid versions that are ad supported and designed to read while on the Metro.

Not to speak ill of the Caps, but there were some game bound fans on the Metro and their jerseys were very close to crimson and white.

My husband was in the Old City of Jerusalem and this guy comes up and asks him if he is American (I think the baseball cap was the giveaway).

So they walk to the guy's booth.... Heart of Dixie, so far, so good, until my husband sees the BAMMER merchandise. Of all the things, you would think you could get away from them in Israel but no.

Auburn merchandise is in the mail for the poor misguided soul.

I grew up a Prattvegan and sported a '61 Falcon (nicknamed the Black Rat)and later a '68 Galaxy 500.

After HS, I only lived there for 4 months (with the parents) while Co-oping in the Gump.

Back in those days Prattville had a lot of Air Force families. Those outside influences were a good thing for that typical small Alabama town.

6:55 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Hoopie - agreed on the Air Force families' influence on Prattville.
Scott from Tucson - no hopped-up vintage Chevy. It sounds nice, though. How about a '76 Mustang II that could barely make it to 55 mph while going downhill? I did have one of those.

scott chocolate,

i have a strange and awkward question.

are you filled with peanut butter?
if not, can you be?

peanut butter + chocolate is probably one of my favorite obsessions besides AU football.

Have you ever been in a Turkish prison?

Comments by Jeremy Richardson, who now claims AU as his favorite ... per Rivals via Jeffery Lee

"It felt real good to have all seven of them there," he said. "It's not everyday that seven coaches come up in a stretch limousine to the school to check on you. It was great. It was nice. It felt good to see them all here."

Focus on the "it's not everyday" part. I'd say that's an understatement ... wouldn't you?

The limo got their attention and pissed off Meyer. Mission accomplished,

personally, i'm disappointed the seven horsemen of the aubpocolypse are not on the road in GA, FL or MS this week.

i bet you could find a truly pimped out limo in south FL. hire one with a hot tub on the back and grab some south beach bikini girls to ride around in the back sipping orange and blue kool-aid. they would just have to tell the wives it is business related.

what i heard from a bammer acquaintance that closely follows recruiting, he was sick that bama did not go after nick fairley that much. he watched fairley play against his son's HS team and said he was a beast on OL and DL. he said he reminded him of sen'derrick marks. me hopes so!

"'Oh Lord it's hard to be humble' when your name is Urban Meyer"

That is the article headline from Phillip Marshall @ AUC. PM is normally quite reserved when discussing coaches, etc.....not here!

Hoopie ...

PMarsh is usually reserved ... except when it comes to Meyer, who in his view hasn't shown the proper reverence to the league and its existence prior to his apparent virgin birth in Gainesville.

Nick Fairley might just end up on the OL before it's all said and done. Either way, this kid should be an immediate contributor.
