First Post: Thursday of Week Six

Hey everyone. So we run a story about Bart Eddins this morning -- see below for the link -- and we're already dodging barbs from Alabama fans:
Why is it, that Awfulburn always has a photo posted, and are always on the top of the sports page? This has got to be the most biased newspaper in the world, besides the New York Times. Awfulburn, and Obama, it never ends!
Funny, we're often accused of being pro-Alabama as well. I wonder who's right? Maybe neither side? Maybe we cover the two teams equally?

In other news, Santa Claus is asking for a higher mileage reimbursement.

Here's the Auburn situation at this moment:

Morning Hotties - following on from Scottie B's comment, the world IS against the Bammer Nation. Well, MY world is at least. I do have some people in my family who are fans of UAT and I'm against them too.

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since I've been to Athens.

By the way, Eddie you can keep the Atlanta traffic. 70,000 people all trying to get in and out of the GaDome for the U2 show really really sucked.

8:33 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

How was the show, RK?

8:34 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

RK- As soon as I find an offer in either Chattanooga or Auburn area i'm gone from Atlanta. I hate Atlanta with a passion and the traffic. If it rains here all hell breaks loose on the roads. It doesn't help that I drive from the West side to the East side and have to go thru the city.

8:37 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Sensi,

It was a great show. We got to the Northside drive exit 252 for the GaDome at 5:45, the show starts at 7:00...we actually got on Northside drive from the exit at 6:15. So 30 mins on the exit ramp. It took almost 2 more hours to get to the Dome.

We missed Muse's whole set and got in right as U2 went onstage.

I was not a happy camper, but their show was great. The acoustics in the dome not so great.

8:37 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Good deal, RK. What are they closing and encoring with these days?

8:40 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

RK- When going to the dome, never drive to it. Parking is not good and getting there is a pain. The best way to go is honestly Marta and the best place to catch the subway is drive down 285 towards Auburn and get on I-20 and immediately off on the Holmes exit and station. That is a direct shot to and from dome without connections and easy on and off from interstate.

8:46 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Peter- It's fine. Marta Security is pretty good. I've parked there several times for games and late night events at the domes, some with my kids and i've never felt endangered. After big events you will usually have a good size crowd riding with you that get off mostly on that exit.

RK- Sorry man, if I knew, I would have offered the advice. As far as Marta on 75....not going to happen for good reason. Cobb County refused to get involved with Marta and will not allow it into the county for fear of what comes with it.

Eddie,

I should have asked. I've always gotten into the Ga Dome with no problem...but looking back it's always been for football games and I get down there around 4 hours before the game starts.

The only concert I have seen there was the show in 2000 with Metallica, Korn, Kid Rock, System of a Down and Powerman 5000 that started early afternoon and there wasn't much traffic.

That was a very loud show. The girls behind us came back from the bathroom with this box of pills that they had found in the bathroom and asked if we thought it would be alright if they took them.

Last time in Athens (with GA family members) was 2005! It was awesome winning! Except band members getting drinks poured on them and GA State patrol having to escort them to buses. I guess that was in retaliation for the sprinklers!

I posted this at the end of a dead thread the other day.

Acts 10:9-16

"The next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth. In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. And a voice came to him, 'Rise, Peter; kill and eat.'
But Peter said, 'Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.'
15 And a voice spoke to him again the second time, 'What God has cleansed you must not call common.' This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again."

Brother Sensi, we can eat the Bacon.

I hate to do this, but I guess I will admit to liking two UAT-influenced establishments. Zoe's pitas are excellent and I like me some Baumhower's wings. On the other hand, I really don't like Dreamland at all, so maybe that offsets the other two a bit. Another advantage to Zoe's are the hot, very fit women who tend to dine there.

It'll behoove ya to be kind to your uvula.

3:16 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Your uvula. It's down below your larinix. You got a uvula. I got a uvula. All God's children got a uvula.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Jet knows and I bet ehyou does too, but for those who don't, the preceding post brought to you by Barney Fife.

3:19 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Who knew Barney was a thread-killer? That one bullet must have worked this time.

3:45 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Indeed Norm. In response I will say:

Hallelujah!

3:48 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Anyone who says Barney Fife is not the greatest tv character ever created is just plain wrong.

3:52 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Norm...
Truer word were never spoken. It's really true for the entire show. Cast, characters, writers - everything was perfect.

4:03 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Never been a fan of the Andy Griffith show.

4:03 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I liked him better as Mr. Ferley.

Isn't "uvula" one of those dirty words you can get banhammered for saying around HABOTN? Are you guys taking advantage of the fact that Jay G isn't around? Shame on you.

4:10 PM

It's Puppet Hour! Anything Goes!

4:14 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Guys, I want to formally apologize for not being an Auburn Man and running Puppet Hour the way it should be run in the last few weeks. Work has just been too busy. Hopefully I can get back on the right track here soon.

If you all want me to just leave, I would understand.

4:23 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

You kids are getting complacent! Get up! It's HOG WEEK!

Get in the poll, and now you're getting soft!

They don't care what you're ranked out there! They think you're reading your press clippings and blog droppings!

4:23 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Puppet hour can commence until kickoff at which time adult talk starts. Enjoy the next couple of hours.

4:27 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Hard for me to get complacent when Explosions In The Sky (music from the under armour commercial) is playing on my pandora right now. I'm ready for toe to meet leather on Saturday.

4:29 PM  
Blogger Roland said...

I don't have a uvula

4:29 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

You should've heeded the words of Chevy Chase:

It'll behoove you to care for your uvula.

4:32 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Isn't "toe meet leather" no longer apropos since the advent of the "soccer-style kicker?" After all, you don't kick with your toes anymore.

"Soccer-style kicker": a great phrase from the 1970s. I wonder who Auburn's last "straight-on" kicker was.

THT? Any answers?

Who was kicking prior to Neil O'Donoghue? I believe Jorge Portela followed him, and then we've had "sidewinders" since.

4:33 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Jet, I still think toe meets leather even with the soccer style. Is it still really leather, though?

As far as "straight-on" kickers goes, I know Florida had one just a couple of years ago under Meyer. Kind of freaked me out.

4:38 PM  
Blogger michael said...

More like "the bridge of your foot meets leather"

4:40 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

You know "the side of your foot meets pigskin" just doesn't have the same ring to it does it.

4:41 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

and that's what happens when you strat to think in the same mode as Michale

4:43 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

So, when there was the kicker that had the club foot, what did the announcer say?

4:44 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Nub meets leather?

4:44 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Nub meets leather...would the ACLU approve?

4:45 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I had half a thought of trying to make the drive home, but evidently the Atlanta insterstate system has become a demolition derby venue according to the traffic site.

4:46 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

mytommy where is your commute to and from?

4:47 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Eddie,

All I know is that the "mike man" cheerleader said "Boom it, Lewis! Boom it!"

4:47 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Well, time to shut the ol' computer down and go home to pack up for FayetteNam.

According to FB, J Gizzle is not having a good day.

4:48 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Lawrenceville to Vinings. The morning ride usually isn't too bad as long as I can get going before 6:30. Evening drive is always bad. Well mostly always.

4:49 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Anyone remember (okay this was during the 80's) the mike man misspelling "Auburn" for the pregame spellout? The band wasn't quite sure what to do.

4:51 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

mytommy- Your drive is almost as bad as mine. I work in Stone Mountain and live in Villa Rica. We should do lunch one day. We are not far apart.

4:52 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Sounds like a plan Eddie. I have a feeling we pass each other many times during the week

4:54 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Villa Rica to Stone Mountain ... I think I might have to either move, or find another line of work. I have a feeling these past couple of weeks have been spectacular for you with all the flood problems

4:56 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

For sure. I bet we do! only one way in and out to that area.

4:57 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

mytommy- the week of the flood I had to practically go to Kennesaw and then to work. I had a great 3.5 hour drive one day.

Ultimate plan is to move as soon as we can to Marietta. Wife works at Kennesaw state and we go to church in Marietta along
with other friends in the area. Moving to Villa Rica was a terrible idea on our part.

4:59 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Jet- YOu are correct. Jay G seems to be having a great trip to Tulsa today.

5:00 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Villa Rica is a swell location otherwise.

5:02 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

Can someone turn the page?

5:03 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

I'm too sleepy to do it.

5:04 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Villa Rica is nice....if we worked close by. We were both working down town originally when we moved here.
