LOL!!!! That is awesome! HAAAAHAAA

You should have gone ahead and put Auburn #1.

Just booked a room at the Crowne Royal Plaza. Guess I'll be bringing my new bottle of Crown that I got for my b-day to top off the occasion.

Tux for Shakes? Is daddy going? I sure hope so...and I better see him rocking that Tom Seleck stache!

shakeyour$maker said...

Shakes will be bringing some Crown as well to top off the weekend. No tux, just a sweet sexy suit for the Shakes.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Going to title the new wheels, wish me luck. I can only imagine who works at the Memphis DMV

tigernation said...

I can use what I learned in college about racial demographics to determine that there is a 88.7% chance that at least half of the workforce at the Memphis DMV is afro-american.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Actually very pleased with the speed and efficiency of my African helper. Very informative and helpful. I retract my vulgarity torward her prior to going in.

Maybe you people from Atlanta are aware of this process but the car inspection is not only a waste of tax dollars but a waste of everyones time. 1 and a half hours later after a 30 second deal I was printed a sheet saying my brand new vehicle had passed. Thanks Memphis

Daddy said...

What kind of vehicle did you get, Dr.?

tigernation said...

You know he got a new maroon Astro Van with a white pinstripe on the side to go with his Bammer magnet that says "on my way to see the Tide play."

tigernation said...

Jermarcus Ricks is a Tiger. Nice pick up. Auburn needs some linemen, especially on the offensive side. They say he can play guard and d-tackle.

shakeyour$maker said...

Thank you Mr. Ricks for becoming a Tiger. You made the correct decision.

tigernation said...

Shakes,

It's looking like I will be arriving in Buckhead about 6:00 my time. I am going to try and check in before the wedding. I think the hotel and the church are on the same road so that will be very easy. We will have to get on 285 and go 1 exit to get to the reception so we might want to carpool if that is ok. It would save time and gas and keep both of our drunk asses from driving. We could also drive back to the hotel after the wedding and then take a cab to the reception. Let me know what you think about that shit, punk.

Dr.Feelgood said...

My vehicle is actually a 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier, MAroon in color. custom Alabama A painted on the hood with my "Rolling with the Tide" magnets on both doors, and yes it is a coupe

Daddy said...

The convertible cavaliers were the shit back in the day!

Dr.Feelgood said...

I think Shakes girlfriend Bridget Newsome drove one

Daddy said...

But only if it was red

tigernation said...

Cav Coupe baby! Tell me you are going to put some speakers on the back dash...with no box..just the bare speaker with the wires coming out of the back.

Maybe a "Fear This" sticker and a beaded seat cover on the driver's seat.

Two missing hub caps are a must.

Dr.Feelgood said...

And a 1992 Alabama cap sunburnt next to speakers on back dash.

Eight ball gear shifter and dice caps on all the door locks.

Maybe even light up windshield wiper fluid thingys on the hood

tigernation said...

A different color on the passenger door and rust on both bumpers.

Carpet from ceiling hanging down inside and taped above driver's side so you can see.

Driver's door won't open so you have to say "let me get in first, my door don't work, got stuck last week."

Dr.Feelgood said...

Can't forget one taillight is the paler shade of red tape where it had been previously busted

tigernation said...

Incredibly loud and piercing screaching noise at all times.

Belts old so it sounds like birds chirping when you crank it up.

Blues smoke killing bugs and choking whoever is behind you in traffic.

Cracker crumbs and old food smashed into seats.

A mix of Menthol cigarette smell and stale beer.

Glove box full of parking tickets.

Blood stain on back seat that nobody knows how it got there.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Chewing gum on a couple of seats so old and so hard it is basically a sealant now.

Cigarette burns all along the window seals where you where trying to "be careful when it rained"

Glove box randomnly drops open during the ride.

Your feet actually touch metal where the carpet has been rubbed off

Daddy said...

you forgot about, wal-mart ground effects

and

Chinese lettering

shakeyour$maker said...

What about the smell of the car? I wonder what yall will come up with for the smell....Maybe a sweet rectum smell along with smoke, and wintergreen skoal.

Car Pool sounds like the way to go to the wedding/reception or whatever. I think we will be arriving sometime in the early afternoon. We will prolly just kick it around town until it is time to go to the wedding. I`ll holla at you tomorrow when we get there, Nation.

tigernation said...

No ground effects. The car rides lop sided because of the fat ass beeotch riding on one side eating cheeburgers and hot wangs.

Chinese letteing is a must.

Mexican tassle around the interior is ok if the ceiling carpet stays up.

tigernation said...

The smell of the car is menthols, stale beer, dirty diapers, fast food, more menthols, reds, body odor(rectum as shakey would say), breast milk, frum-unda-cheese, and more menthols.

shakeyour$maker said...

Boy, this sure sounds like my kinda car. Dr. I`m jealous as hell that you went out and bought my dream car.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Smells like Pall Mall, Filet-O -Fish, Desitin, Cat Food, Sweaty tighty whiteys, and a coat hanger abortion

tigernation said...

Coat hanger abortion? That is too much, oh my God that is disgusting. HA HA LMAO! I love this car. Shakey, can you please drive it to the wed? I would love to cruise up in that one.

Dr.Feelgood said...

I think I am going to vomit over my own comment. Might have bought some Hell time with that comment

tigernation said...

No hell time. Just 1 really gross thought put into words.

Shakes, I just looked and the hotel is 1.8 miles from the church. We should ride together to the wedding and then back to the hotel. Catch a cab to the reception (8 miles) and then from the reception to the bars or hotel, whatever. I'm not wanting to get on the 285 bypass after drinking at the reception and I'm sure you aren't either.

Dr.Feelgood said...

You from the Tribe Bitch walk

tigernation said...

What does that mean? Bitch get out of the car and walk?

Dr.Feelgood said...

From the Roy Wood phone call about cutting the old blackeys SS check.

tigernation said...

Oh yeah, that was pretty funny. "I'm from the kick yo ass tribe!"

Dr.Feelgood said...

I wouldn't care whether you from the Hoochie Coochie Tribe of Mississippi

Dr.Feelgood said...

Definitely reached a new chapter in mny life yesterday. I now have a Tennessee tag

tigernation said...

Well, I am honestly sorry to hear that. You are now a "resident VOL" whether you like it or not.

It's amazing the lengths we will go to in order to further our career and make money.

I told a customer the other day that I was "proud of the Dawgs season." Can you believe that? I almost barfed up my lunch.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Well I have the pleasure of saying my home state team is Memphis so I can avoid those stomach churning bullshitting comments.

It is sad, I never thought I would leave the great state of Alabama, but career did come calling. Somewhat of a gut check for being old. That and the anal rape I took on taxes

shakeyour$maker said...

Nation,

A car pool to the wedding then back to the hotel to catch a cab to the reception is fine with me. I really could care less about driving drunk on 285. If drunk, I`ll just have to pull out my magnent number 8`s to put all over the car, so we can race folks on 285.

Do you think there will be cabs from the reception?

shakeyour$maker said...

Dr.-Not taxes....I think you meant the anal rape that Easterling gave you.

tigernation said...

Shakeyourwangstein,

Yep, there will be cabs from there. They have to. There will be too many drunk folks there to be driving around Atl. Remember, Monk is getting married....that means there will be a Robbs sighting. That fact alone constitutes a mass # of taxi cabs in the area.

But, if you are cool with driving then we can try to make it back to the hotel after the reception. I think the hotel is close to the bars. I told my date I would go out with her afterwards so I guess I have to.

tigernation said...

Just got a new weight bench for my b-day from Play It Again. Olympic style baby! I will be SWOLE up top in about 3 months.

It's all about making sure the chest sticks out farther than the gut.

My titties were getting kind of soft and the ladies were NOT happy.

Fear the CHEST!!!

Dr.Feelgood said...

Funny Shakes. Leave him out of this he has Restless Leg Syndrome For Gods sakes have a heart

shakeyour$maker said...

Yea, I guess your right with Robbs` being in attendance, cabs will be plentiful. Fuck the Drunk Driving, we`ll do the cab thing.

Tell me about this date of yours. Age, Sex, Race, Boobies, Booty, etc....???

shakeyour$maker said...

Oh yea...I forgot. My apologizes for Easterling. I hope he gets that leg settled down. That could be a VERY big problem for him in the future when he decides to settle down with someone. The girl/guy he marries might have to wear shin guards and a cup to bed. Better yet, just full body armor to go to sleep in while sharing a bed with Easterling.

tigernation said...

Age...22

Race...White! Finally!

Sex.....yes, of course

Boobies.....ENORMOUS!! Honestly, them thangs are huge.

Booty....Big....not as big as Kim's though...that was freaking HUGE.

She is very good friends with my little bro. She used to think I was the shit when I would come back from college.....before the weight gain. You know, the older guy syndrome....

We aren't dating though so don't ask her how long we have been dating and all that shit.

shakeyour$maker said...

I can`t wait to meet her. You just wait and listen to what I ask her.

22...Oh I see, going after your brother`s old girlfriends. I would feel "Old" going out with someone that young and I`m 23. I can`t imagine what you feel like at 29.

tigernation said...

You are a fucking RIOT shakes!!!!!

For the record I am 26.

I do feel old from time to time when I have to talk about the "O.C." and "Laguna Beach" and "One Tree Hill".

Who the hell names a TV show "One Tree Hill"? Thats like saying "Two Car Garage" or "One Turd Poop".

I'm not going to lie though. I love "Dancing with the Stars". Stacy Keibler is a knockout and Jerry Rice can dance pretty good.

I am also a fan of early American Idol episodes because I love watching people fall on their faces.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Shakes you would be a good Idol candidate. You look like Aiken and you are a faggot so why haven't you tried out yet??

Dr.Feelgood said...

Shakes - Hear you 'rents are at the old Red Oak house tonight for dinner

tigernation said...

You are CORRECT! He is a faggot. Daddy, you too, don't act like you don't remember that time I walked in on y'all after my 10:00 class.

shakeyour$maker said...

Shawn and Cindyloo will be in attendance when roll is called for dinner at the Clonts household.

Dr.-No, I`m not a faggot, and NO i am not trying out for Idol. Aiken is hot, so I appreciate that Clonts. Did yall catch the bald dude singing "The Letter" by Joe Cocker?

Bilbo Baggins, do not try to act like you aren`t 29. I`m gonna touch your girl`s tit. COWGIRL UP!!!!!!!

shakeyour$maker said...

Nation- Do you think Granberry might make an appearance Saturday Night? i wonder if he`ll want to go "smoke some grass"?

tigernation said...

Cowgirl up is actually her email address! I am not expecting a Granberry sighting, but we may hear that phrase since we are notorious for those types of actions.

Did any of you see the twins from the first night have been arrested for identity theft? They are from ATL....typical.

shakeyour$maker said...

Daddy- You still going to see Duncan Sheik, Gretchen Wilson, and Ronnie Milsap this weekend? Should be a great show. Wonder what Gretchen is talkin about in the song "All Jacked Up"?

shakeyour$maker said...

Those black boy twins? I did not know that.


Cowgirl Up...that`s pretty sexy. She like to do the reverse cowgirl position?

shakeyour$maker said...

Well Ladies, I am taking it to the house for a session. I will see some of you turds tomorrow....others I will see at a later date.

tigernation said...

Later old man. Not sure about the "reverse cowgirl." Although, I have enjoyed that one quite a bit with some other sweet ladies.

I know what Gretchen is talking about and it is not good for you at all.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Peace Out have fun in Atlanta be careful. After my car tax there will not be enough funds to wire for one of you punks bail.

Shakes give me a quick call I got a question

tigernation said...

Well, it looks like Schaeffer (sp?) is headed to Ole Miss. Guess he'll be adding a Mississippi prison stay to his Tennessee list of prison visits. He should fit right in with that maniacal, wife-abusing, mongrel of a coach (Ogre!). Guess he'll be tasting the wrath of Auburn's d-line just like he did at UT. Maybe he won't break a bone this time around when slammed by a Tiger. He needs to stay healthy so he can pick up where he left off in his interception tally against AU.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Something smells rotten in Oxford. No way all these prospects want to play there

tigernation said...

Rivals.com

Auburn is now the team to beat for Hawthorne. "Auburn is No. 1," said Hawthorne. "South Carolina is second and Georgia is third."

I hope it stays that way for a week or so. He said he thinks he can come to Auburn and push for early playing time.

tigernation said...

Guess Kingdom was too tired yesterday to give us a new topic so I'll take over for the moment.

With my new found interest in recruiting this year I have noticed that the so called "expert recruiting services" differ in their assesments of players and signee classes in general.

For instance: Scout.com has Alabama's class rated as the #21 overall class in the nation while Rivals.com has Alabama #10. That is just one team and one example.

From team to team and player to player, these so-called "experts" drastically vary in their respective opinions. Personally I think these services are unfair to players and fans as they build expectations up so high that these players are set up for failure. And with the team rankings, fans think that their team should be contending for championships simply due to the fact that Scout.com said they signed the "#7 safety in the nation" or whatever.

Let me know some of your brilliant thoughts on these services and recruiting in general.

shakeyour$maker said...

Nation- You have made an excellent point in your observation. I don`t think the intention of these scout websites is to set a kid up for failure or to falsely identify one`s playing ability. I think it has become more and more popular as interest in recruiting is at an all time high. This is the same kind of issue we discuss all the time. It is a matter of opinion when it comes to ANY kind of poll. I`m not sure what the deal is with the same team being on two extremes of the scale (Bama #10 and also #21). You would think they would be pretty closely ranked even in two separate polls. I think these websites and recruiting trackers and rankings are somewhat bogus, but at the same time, they give us something to do during the day.

When will Hawthorne make up his mind.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Nation - I believe that some of those rankings are definitely partial to the fanbase the sites appeal too mainly. For instance Lindy's always has a high opinion of Alabama and Auburn because they sell a shitload in the state.

Another reason for the differences is that some websites don't honor last years recruits when ranking. If they were actually signed a year ago and didn't make their grades etc. they aren't considered a part of this years new class.

I do think however the rankings don't really meam much.

shakeyour$maker said...

I agree 100% Dr.

Lindy`s is a complete joke with over 80% of their sales coming in the state of Alabama. Pretty interesting, huh!

Recruiting Rankings are a compete joke.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Think of how absurd it is to rank these guys anyway.

Take the yellow jackets of Oxford. When we played 6A ball we played some of the following in one season: Hoover, Mountain Brook, Benjamin Russell. Now consider when we dropped back to 5A the schedule included: Pell City, Talladega, Jacksonville, and Sylacauga.

Major difference in competition. The 5A schedule is what got me in the Rivals Top 100 until I tore up the shoulders.

Brodie played all 1A teams in high school, and don't you think he was a tad bit overrated coming out of high school

Daddy said...

I think all pre-season and post-season statistics, like recruiting stats, are relative to where or by whom analyzed the data. The data is very subjective when you are trying to rank high school players who compete at different levels, and then it gets further skewed as the media, coaches and fans try to interpret and then further rank these players.
What has become so surprising though, especially in the last decade or so, is how much everyone uses this information. In fact many teams become defined by who they are going to get and not what they do with them.
I see it as a catch-22. We like to know who we are going to get and try to see how they compare against other teams. However, just the posting of these player statistics causes more confusion(and are not always correct), because of the variation in peoples opinions, locations, and biasedness (not sure if that is a real word-but yall get it).

Daddy said...

Nation,
It is nice to see such an old man (arent you 30 now!) robbing the cradle. Props!

tigernation said...

I am not 30 years old for the last time! I am an extremely young 26. I had someone tell me the other day that I looked 22, so there you go.

Shakey had quite a laugh at the wedding when the topic of my actual age was brought up.

Glad I can be a source of entertainment.

tigernation said...

I wasn't saying that the services intentionally set the kids up for failure. I was just saying that when you pump a kid up so high, the only place to go is either down, or in a straight line.

I wish they would come out with a listing of players that Jamie fucking Newberg (scout.com) had touted as #1's over the last five years and then how that player panned out. I guarantte he is 50% correct at best.

When was the last time AU was ranked ahead of UGA in recruiting? I can't remember either......but 5 wins in the last 7 meetings tells me they can have all the high ranked recruits that they want. That doesn't always translate to wins.

tigernation said...

Just read where Hawthorne backed off of his "Auburn is in the lead" statement. Either make up your mind and stand by your word or shut the hell up.

And that goes for all of these fickle, primadonnas who think that their shit doesn't stink.

I heard he is having a press conference on ESPN to announce his commitment. Exactly my point on building up egos. These kids think they are God's gift only to get to college and realize that they are a small fich in a huge pond. He will be running gassers and puking with everyone else in August. That press conference won't mean shit when Tray Blackmon knocks his ass OUT!

If he decides to come to Auburn then great, if not, then great. Just don't go over the middle in Jordan-Hare cause you will end up breathing turf just like Reggie.

shakeyour$maker said...

Hello Ladies. All this recruiting talk had me looking up different guys that still have not committed. I came across something that stunned me. Last year, Auburn HEAVILY recruited a wide receiver by the name of Fred Rouse out of Florida. He said Auburn all the way, until the end when he signed with FSU. The bastard just got kicked off the team for violating team rules, the second violation for the true freshman Parade All-American since coming to FSU this past fall. What a loser. I am glad that we didn`t end up getting this guy. Tubbs has been pretty good about keeping "trash" off the field. We`ve had some "trash" in the past, but Tubbs has cleaned it up for sure.

Also heard, Bama`s lock for a recruit in Andre Smith, looks to be heading to Auburn according to a newspaper in Tallahassee. It said something about,"Andre knows he can walk right in at either Auburn or Bama and play immediately. Now, it just becomes a question of: Does he want to play for a championship caliber team or not." Wonder which "Championship Caliber" team they are talking about Dr.?

shakeyour$maker said...

Nation, Daddy, and Kingdom,

This is the link to the zap of everyone at the tailgate South Carolina.

http://www.partypics.com/ver2/ViewImage.aspx?OrderNo=26108596&Roll=00001&Frame=0108

I think the password is AU03 or 02 can`t remember. Our big picture is on the last page (6).

shakeyour$maker said...

The picture includes: Burton brooks, Derrick Dennis, Me, EY, Chuckie D, Bilbo Baggins, Gwintz, Emily Watts, Laura Cobb, Haley Howell, Jay Penny, Sam Gwintz, Janis the Manis, Wilbur, and a few randoms girls and a guy that are blurred.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Shakes - If you will also recall Rouse narrowed down to the final two last year Alabama and FSU. Thank God that punk ass didn't show up here. I don't think he would have made it to the field if he played for Tubbs or Shula.

I hear Andre Smith is now lock for Florida.

Did Daddy and Shakes get so moved by the wedding they actually popped the question.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Well Auburn doesn't have a prayer for Championship caliber team with such an extremely difficult schedule

King of Tigerland said...

I heard Smith was going to FSU?!?@!

shakeyour$maker said...

Shut up Dr.
