A week with no Dawgs

Hey y'all. I know it's been a long time since my last post. The Food Guy has been hogging the computer lately. He's been frantically trying to get all his papers finished for the semester, so I haven't really been able to get a chance to give y'all an update on what's been going on around here. 

We made a trip home to Mooresville for Thanksgiving. It was a pretty good time. The Food Guy and his Dad went to the airport to pick up Food Guy's brother-in-law who came down for the weekend from Baltimore. They made the obligitory trip to the Waffle House on the way back from the airport. I hear they made some killer hashbrowns there.

 But, you know the sad 'ol story- no people food for me. All in all, it was a good trip. Food Guy's dad gave me lots of dog bones and I got to hang out on the boat some. 

We rushed back to Athens to make it in time for the Ga Tech game. I have to admit I was glad I got to watch that one on TV. Poor Food Guy stood in the rain all day only to watch our Dawgs lose to a bunch of smart kids from the North Avenue Trade School.

 Boo hiss! I mean, really. Losing to Tech! COME ON! I knew the ridiculous penalties and all the missed tackles were bad when we were playing real schools from the SEC, but to lose to an ACC school- and to Tech our arch rival at that! LAME! Seriously, this ain't basketball. You know ACC rules basketball and the SEC rules football. It's that simple. I like it that way too. We can root for our Heels during basketball season with no guilt because SEC basketball is LAME and root for our Dawgs during football season because ACC football sucks. Well, I guess I shouldn't really say that since we lost to Tech, but you know what: Even a blind squirrell will find a nut once every 8 years so as long as we don't make habit of losing to those nerds I'll get over it. Plus, you gotta stick by your boys even when they do something stupid- like lose to a bunch of geeks.

Anyway, the Dawgs don't play again until January, so it's kind of the boring time of year for football. I'll watch some NFL games and some of the boring bowl games, but mostly I'll just have to wait for the few nights a week when the Heels are on TV dominating. Tomorrow should be good though. Bama will hopefully roll all over the stupid Gators. I hope Cody makes a snack out of that hypocrite Tebow and Saban makes Urban Meyer look stupid. For now, all I can say is Roll Tide. Hopefully the Dawgs will right the ship and put on a good show against whatever Sister's of the Blind school we have to play in our bowl game this year. I shouldn't complain though. We finished 9-3. That ain't too shabby really. Tubberville and Phat Phil would still have jobs if they were 9 and 3. But, we'd better come out tackling and playing smart next year!

Well, the Food Guy still has to wear the stupid red-leg black-leg pants until the end of the year. So, I'll try to get his phone and take some pictures of him tomorrow and give y'all an update on what we've been up to.
