  • If you haven’t seen the video of Urban Meyer gnawing on reporter Jeremy Fowler, go watch it.  He’s since apologized to him, but sheesh, come on, Urban.  Even your first post-Tebow and post-“resignation” year, you’ve got to be mellower than this.  (I’m impressed with how Fowler handled himself.)
  • I recently reconnected with one of my coolest high school teachers on Facebook.  She taught me Humanities my junior year, and guess what?  She’s still cool.
  • It took me eight or ten tries, and there was a lot of improvement from try one to try two and from try two to try three, but I have perfected the art of grilling ribs.  I’d rather eat mine than anyone else’s.
  • On another food note, do you like the bread at Macaroni Grill?  This recipe is very, very close.  Aaron is taking two loaves to school tomorrow to share with his class.
  • I was pulled over for speeding for the first time in eight years on Tuesday morning.  Officer Scruggs of the Madison Police Department was polite, professional, and let me go with a warning.  Thank you, sir.  I appreciate it.
  • The Bush administration made a horrible call on the U.S. embassy in Iraq.  The complex occupies a staggering 104 acres (appropriated, not purchased)—by far the largest embassy in the world, and approaching the size of Vatican City.  Can you see creeping resentment as a possibility in the years to come?  I can.  Most of this land needs to be returned to Iraq as soon as is practical.
  • I had to send Watchmen back to Netflix unwatched.  I didn’t care enough to tolerate the run time.

  1. I figure Urban’s head will explode like the movie Scanners when he gets waxed in Tuscaloosa this year. Psst, Urban, a word to the wise. You do NOT want to get heart problems in Tuscaloosa and have them take you to DCH. Bad precedent from a much better coach.

    Watchmen was ok, but very long (I have the extended cut). I read the graphic novel and loved it as a teen. This was, ehhh, just ok. I really think it would be unfilmable – maybe better suited as an HBO miniseries. I applaud Snyder’s attempt and reverence for the material, but Alan Moore is such an ass, it’s impossible to get a decent adaptation with the original author. 2.5 out of 5 – you can borrow whenever.

  2. Try the olives at Macaroni Grill. Yummy!

  3. Bo: Humanities? Who was that? I can’t remember. Leave me a msg on FB when you get a chance.

    Urb’s losing it. I think the 8-4 season that’s headed his way will be the final straw.
