OK, One More...

Forgot to mention this yesterday, but wanted to post it:

I have a ton of emails I've gotten from readers over the past few weeks but life has just been a bit too hectic to reply to many of them. I do promise to get to them at some point in the next week though, and I'm extremely appreciative of all of you who took the time to write.

Also, if you want to stay in touch down the road, my email account will likely be shut down soon, but you can reach me now at Feel free to shoot me a message any time. I'll probably be looking for mailbag material soon!

And lastly, among the many great comments to yesterday's post, this was one of my favorites. I figured it was worth sharing.

As the Anon commenter who posted the above list (hey, I'm lazy, and I never registered - - so sue me), I am humbled that you chose to reference it in one of your final Bulldogs Blog posts.

I had a lot of fun doing it. Hopefully the affection comes across. (My wife has tons of relatives in and around Philly. I actually love going there (or the Shore) and talking sports with them.)

My faves: the year-by-year comparisons and the civic pride-of-place comparison at being the home of Ben Franklin and REM, respectively.

I thought of one more:
Mike Golic = Buck Belue

Like me, the list probably rambles on a little too long. Try as I might, I couldn't come up with any comparisons for the following:
Betsy Ross?
Boys II Men?
Suzanne Yoculan?
Frank Rizzo?
Jan Kemp?

Maybe you guys can come up with the equivalents for those.

Thanks again, David - - safe travels, my friend.

You da man David. We'll miss you. Best of luck!

Dang! You carpetbaggers keep stickin' don't you? Don't let the Mason-Dixon Line hit you in the butt on the fast move nawth. I'll bet you are salivating over interpreting things Richt is saying at SEC. Saw that someone is publishing the things he says in private. That must really rankle yo butt; not being able to be around to interpret them and talk about the hot seat.

I think that all posts should be removed if they are not saying that The Georgia Bulldogs are GREAT.

We don't need to read that, not here.

Let anyone who dares to post that we are NOT GREAT, do it on Georgia tek blogs, instead.

Cojones said...

Anon- You are correct. Nowhere did I see in this article or the posts any reference to the Bulldogs and this is a BULLDOGS BLOG.


Hopefully this is the final yap of this Bulldog chasing a car headed nawth out of Georgia.

Yes, that is all this blog is good for.

Just only post if you say the Bulldogs are Great.

Or, alternatively, talk about anything but Bulldogs' football.

Do not under any circumstances discuss what we need to fix.

You can talk about TV shows, though. That's fine.
