(Editorial note: I started writing this post at about 4 pm Friday, but got called away by real life. I just now finished it off at 6:45 am on Saturday. I hate it when that happens.)
Where we at? Well, we are finally at a "stopping place."
Naw, that's not true. We are actually at a place where I just decided to stop.
There is so much junk that needs doing around here. I swear...stuff needs painted, weeds need eating, bulbs need digging, a 700 lb.bathtub & ONE Chevy S-10 pickup truck needs hauling away, and I really, really, really need a bath...
But, I just decided to stop (I WILL get a bath a bit later, though).
Truth is, there are no MAJOR home repairs that need doing right now. I think I may have casually mentioned that I got the kitchen floor in fine shape, and the hallway bathroom back up and running after putting it all off as long as I could, and staying happily married. So, we really are kinda' at a stopping point.
The rest of the junk will be there when I go back to my "single-minded-gotta-get-it-did-male-self." It'll come back around. Always does.
My weekend is screwed up, too. I now have as regular "days off," Friday, and Saturday. But...there is this new guy at work...a guy that I really like a lot. He had a fabulous opportunity to do something on Saturday. I mean, it is REALLY fabulous...kind of a once in a lifetime chance. But, he was scheduled to work on Saturday, and had to find "somebody" that was off on Saturday to swap shifts with him.
He asked me, and I said "yes." I'm a sucker for such things. So, I've got to go in to work Saturday afternoon, and then turn around and be back at work on Sunday morning.
I'm a sucker for such things.
But, I really don't mind so much. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the man. It's very similar to an opportunity that I once had, but passed on. I've got very few regrets in life.
So, what we got?
Tonight, we've got the #2 ranked Okie State 'boys at Iowa State. The Pokies are ripe for a loss. Iowa State will bring down this notion that Oklahoma State deserves to play for the National Title against an SEC team. It will be close, but Iowa State will win. The Cowboys will probably lose to OU, too.
Write this down. Stick it on your 'frigerator door. OSU will not end up in the BS-BCS championship game. It will be LSU & 'Bama.
Speaking of my beloved Tigers...I'll admit, it's been a challenge to get excited about our games the past few days. I mean, after you beat the second best team in the land, and are forced to endure Homecoming against Western Kentucky, and a Conference game against The Klan tomorrow (the worst team in my memory as an SEC watcher). Well...it's just kinda blah blah blah...
But, I've done my best.
I even tried to pump up Tucker! Y'all know Tucker. Tucker is my great nephew that The Mrs. keeps care of (at no charge for 4 or 5 days a week...but I don't care, because he is the sweetest little cat of all the dozens of chirrens we've had around our joint for lo these three plus decades of havin' chirrens around here). I've shown y'all pictures of him before.
He is without a doubt the worlds biggest LSU fan (under one years of age).
It was REALLY easy to get him excited about the games against Oregon, MS State, and 'Bama. But, Tucker kinda balked on me when it came to Flarda & Auburn (because they suck), but he chested up and did his best.
He's a trooper.
But, I could get no such goodness while trying to get him revved up about our game against The Klan tomorrow.
The boy went to sleep with his chin on his foot (I wish I could still do that), with his T-shirt wrapped up like he's in a straight jacket, or something!
I tried. Trust me, I did. But, it's The Klan...the worst football team in the history of the SEC that we're facing tomorrow.
Tucker don't waste his energy.
It will be LSU 50 - Klan 6.
In other games of importance, there will be only one surprise. Mississippi State will beat Arkansas at The Sty in Little Rock. This one will be close, too...maybe go in to overtime. But, the Dogs will prevail in an upset (if you can call it that).
I think Oregon, OU, Clemson, Boysees, and the other top ranked teams will prevail...even though The Ducks are likely to have trouble with their rubbers.
It's gonna be a couple of years before Tucker can do this. But, at early an age as humanly possible, I'm gonnna learn him the fight song.
Look, y'all have a great weekend, huh? I'm gonna be really pounding it, so don't worry about me if I'm not hanging out with y'all much. It don't mean that I don't love y'all.
Because, I do.
