  • I am going to be a fall festivalin’ fool this weekend—both the boys’ school and church.  I’m glad they had the good sense to do this on a weekend when Alabama is off.
  • Speaking of, you may have heard there’s a big football game next weekend.
  • I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a worse game than a lot of people think.
  • Good beer elevates cheap food, but cheap beer drags good food down.
  • I’m going to see a movie with BamaDan next week.  Had a look at what’s playing, and saw The Thing, Ghostbusters, and Footloose.  That’s just wrong.
  • Lea used to work with this guy who, when he called in sick, would say “I’m just not feeling my best.”  I love that.  It’s funny because it’s vaguely prissy, but it’s also ingenious, because how often do you really feel your best?
  • Looking forward to my Kindle Fire.  I thought the Wi-Fi-only thing might irritate me, but I’ve found with my mobile blogging rig that there’s an awful lot of Wi-Fi out there.

  1. Ghostbusters, The Thing and Footloose??? Seriously, Hollywood hasn’t had anything original in years!

    Looking forward to a review of the Kindle Fire from you!

  2. Me too (looking forward to your Kindle Fire review). I’m getting one for Christmas. Or at least, I better be!

    Curious about why you think LSU-Bama won’t be a good game. Not saying you’re wrong… just wondering what makes you think so.

  3. Jenny, for one, the general excellence of this Tide team on both sides of the ball. If we have a weakness, it’s special teams, and kick coverage in particular—but when play on the line is so solid, “no blunders” is sufficient performance. And generally, it has been. And it shall be.

    For another, Alabama hasn’t played a close game this year. Smallest margin of victory is 16 points, and that one should have been 24. Most important for the LSU game there is that I don’t think the book of defensive schemes has been all the way open yet.

    Finally, Coach Saban is vengeful. Have a look at how often this guy loses to the same team two years in a row. (Hint: it’s not often.)

    Alabama 34, LSU 17

  4. Oh, my feelings aren’t hurt that it’s at Bryant-Denny either.

  5. I hope you’re right, Bo! I’m nervous as hell about this one.
