For Your Viewing Pleasure

For my ‘Bama fan readers – on the off chance that your DVR crapped out like mine did and recorded eight hours of Mythbusters over that Game 1 beatdown before I even got a chance to watch the replay.  Watch it while it’s YouTubed, folks.  There is a ton of football to be played, and nothing is certain but more uncertainty, more chaos, more competition gunning for the Tide… but this weekend was a spectacular one in Dallas.

Part 1
Part 2

And look!  It’s almost mid-week.  We are halfway to more football!  Looking forward to seeing the Crimson Tide live and in person versus Western Kentucky on Saturday, with plans already in place to see the Ole Miss and Missouri games (overlooking the tradeoffs I had to make – taking the wife to Auburn’s LSU and Vandy games, but you know there’s always a chance those trips will be fun for a ‘Bama fan too).  *grins*  *hopes Leslie doesn’t read this*

Roll Tide, everyone!
