Hasta La Vista, Senor Smith

I'm never one to mess with a man's livelihood. He should be able to do his job, feed his family, pursue life, liberty and happiness etc. Even if he is really shitty at doing his job, as long as it doesn’t affect me, who am I to say one way or the other?

So far John L. Smith, MSU head coach, hasn’t really bothered me too much. I did hate how he choked against Notre Dame, like Mama Cass on a ham sammy. But all in all I’m fine with him.

Now, having said all that if, as collateral damage from a 30 point ass-stompin’ from the Scarlet and Gray tomorrow J.L. were to get the axe….I’m down with that. I would love nothing more from this weekend to have the Buckeyes hang half a hundred on Sparty and come back home uninjured and happy. If that goofy ass coach up there loses his gig for it, darn.

So here’s to you folks at
SackSmith. May you get your wish and hear the Buckeye Battle Cry in your dreams.

tOSU – 42
Sparty – 13

Yeah, I know. It’s a lot of points but I don’t think Tressel-ball can slow down TS , TG2, Gonzo and the boys

Coming to a Ryan's Steakhouse

This just in.

From the Austin Statesman -

Bevo XIII, longest tenured Texas mascot dies. AUSTIN — Bevo XIII, the longest-tenured mascot in Texas Longhorn history, is gone to the big ranch in the sky.

The retired mascot died Monday on the private ranch where he lived with his successor, Bevo XIV, the Silver Spurs spirit club announced Tuesday

Insert beef jokes here. I'll start. "Where's the beef?"

I think it was the shocker he recieved from these

Sparty Schmarty

Even though it is cool (for Dallas 65 is cool), gray and rainy, which is perfect for college football season, I am non-plussed by the Buckeyes pending match-up in E.L., MI this weekend. It’s only Tuesday, so I’m sure that I’ll get a lot more worked up about it as we move through the week but right now, it’s a yawner.

Even when the Sparty’s are good, they elicit very little emotion from me. Probably because they are the weak Michigan sister. Or, because they’re from East Lansing. They’re green. Astroturf. They just seem so nondescript to me.

Oh sure, I remember a #1 Ohio State team taking one in the wedding tackle when MSU came to our Dojo in 1998. Damn you John Cooper. Still, it’s freaking Michigan State. To me MSU seems like the “special” kid on the short bus who wears a helmet, but he’s big and ornory enough that you don’t constantly pick on him, but he’s still a “special” helmet-wearin’ short bus rider.

Maybe to perk myself up, I’ll start hoping that John L. Smith will either lose his mind or his job or better yet both, after the Buckeyes whip their ass. That would make Mongo happy. Mongo like.
Like I said earlier, I know I’ll get more into it later in the week. Right now I’ve lost energy to talk about this thing.
