Whoooaaa, who won the SEC pool?

At scoresandodds.com they have a bracket manager where you can post everyone's bracket and it does the calculating for you. Just a thought.

I am about to tally the scores on the SEC pool because I don't think I did it right the forst time.

tigernation said...

Damn it. Looks like our blog administrator pulled it out again.

Lucky punk.

Daddy said...

Did everyone watch The Sopranos last night? Very rugged!

tigernation said...

Tivo. Didn't get to see it so don't tell me about it yet.

shakeyour$maker said...

NATION- You missed a very rugged episode. Some very unexpected things happen.

One thing I will tell you is that Adrianna is not dead...or is she?

tigernation said...

Tomorrow night bitches!!!!!

Crowes will rock the house and kick some ass. What time does it start?

Daddy said...

It starts when daddy gets there, and you know this!

Daddy said...

And I will be there by 7:30.

tigernation said...

There is a good parking lot right next to the Fox. If you are FACING the theatre it is on your right. I think it may be a bank lot.

I am trying to get there by 7:30 my time if I can, maybe earlier.

And it starts when the lights go down.....

Dr.Feelgood said...

Adrianna is dead

Very RUGGED last night. Did you all catch Big Love afterwards. That show was supposed to be a good new show, but I was a lil disappointed

Daddy said...

Nation,
Do you remember how easy it was to get stuff into the fox. I have only been there once, and from what I remember it was hard.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Sent you all a bracket thing from yahoo. it will keep up with scores and all.

they have to be filled out before tipoff of the first game.

if thats cool we can just go by that. then everyone can see the scores as it goes

shakeyour$maker said...

Nation- You still got that xtra ticket to the show tonight?

Dr.Feelgood said...

you can view other peoples picks in the yahoo group. you cannot see them until the tournament starts thursday.

tigernation said...

daddy - I think it is pretty easy just be careful.

shakes - nice talking to your early rising ass this morning. Damn, I didn't know what to think when I saw your # on the ID here at the store.

Yahoo is good with me. Has everybody already picked?

Dr. - you might want to send bulldog that email about registration for the pool.

bulldog - I sure would like to take some of your money, punk!

shakeyour$maker said...

Dr,

My screen name is that number. I guess I put it in at the wrong time or something. I know you are dying to see my picks so you can decide how you need to pick.

How far do you boys see an SEC team making it?

Can we disclose who we picked...or do we have to wait until the actual tourney starts?

shakeyour$maker said...

Nation-I was gonna prank call your ass if you would have answered at the store. I figured leaving a message just wouldn`t do my redneck disguised voice justice. I had planned to give you hell about a shitty matress you sold me...then I was gonna ask to speak to the owner,Fast Eddie, to see how he would react. It would`ve been some funny shit, but some people don`t open their store until 10AM.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Florida will make it the farthest.

Tennessee might get popped in the 2nd. Alabama KY and Ark could all go out in the first. I think AL is the only of those three that could pull the upset in Round 2. I don't see KY beating UCONN or Ark. beating Memphis. UCLA is probably the second weakest #2 seed and AL matches well to them

tigernation said...

Just put my picks up bitches!!!!!

I am gonna need a name recognition of everyone so I can taunt your asses!!!

I suggest you guys who have not picked yet get on the ball!!!

Daddy said...

Daddy is "The Money Pick", and it is.

Daddy said...

Nation,
Where are you sittin tonight?

tigernation said...

I really don't know. Let me call Chuck D and find out. Be right back.

tigernation said...

Far right side. About where y'all sat for the A-Bros show last time.

I know Shakes is in the Balcony but where are you sitting?

A guy I know has 2nd row seats...bitch.

Daddy said...

We are in the balcony in the section above shakes.

How much did he pay for the 2nd row tickets?

I cant fucking wait, I will be there by 7 ga time. Give us a holler!

tigernation said...

I don't know how much he paid.

Heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who, heard it from another he had second row seats......

If traffic is not too bad I will be there around 7 myself.

Can't wait!!!!

Chucky D said they have been playing 190 minute shows recently.....sounds like some tuning up for the Fox...their favorite venue.

Dr.Feelgood said...

I haven't made picks yet. Kingdom and Chairman need to step up to the plate

Dr.Feelgood said...

to change your name shakes, all you have to do is click on him and then edit by your name then you can change

tigernation said...

With it being exactly one month since Valentine's day.....

I thought I would inform the blog that today (March 14) will be forever remembered as "Steak and Blow Job" day.

So for those of us who can get the occasional Beejer, enjoy your holiday.

Valentine's isn't so bad when it is followed up by S&BJ day!!

Daddy said...

Did you hear it at 31 Flavors?

See yall tonight!

tigernation said...

I don't think this is true but if it was it would suck pretty bad. This is from one of those sites where anyone can post an editorial so take it with a grain of salt but......

WILL FERRELL DEAD!!!

Los Angeles -- Actor Will Ferrell accidentally died in a freak para-gliding accident yesterday in Torey Pines, Southern California. The accident apparently happened somewhere near the famed paragliding site after a freak wind gush basically blew Ferrell and his companion towards a wooded area where they lost control before crashing into the dense foilage.

(I-Newswire) - Ferrell and his professional guide, Horacio Gomez of Airtek Paragliding Center attempted the jump at around 2 in the afternoon. According to witnesses, the conditions were basically ideal for para-gliding and the weather did'nt pose a problem at all.

The jump started normally as Ferrell and Gomez glided carefully across the vast area and were seemed headed into the righ direction just before what witnesses said a freak wind somehow blew them off course, causing the paragliding professional Gomez to somehow lose control.

As horrified witnesses looked on, the duo headed straight for the dense woods near the jump off point and crashed at an estimated 60 mph hitting the trees as they hurtled to the ground.

Some friends of the actor who witnessed the accident immediately called up 911. The paramedics vainly attempted to revive the two on their way to the nearby UCSD Thornton Hospital in nearby La Jolla.

The duo suffered major injuries to the head and broken bones that caused the death of the two.

In an interview with Will's parents who was John W. Ferrell in real life, Mary and Hubert Ferrell said their sonn died while doing one of the things he loved the most.

Will was a graduate of the University of California where he finished his Sports Information Degree. Will was born on July 16, 1968. He was 36.

Daddy said...

What a show! Daddy is a little tired this morning though.

shakeyour$maker said...

What a show for real!!!! That was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Fun Times!

tigernation said...

One of the best for sure, but I don't know if can say THE best.

I CAN say that "Dreams" was the best song I have ever seen live....EVER!

3 part guitar harmony was bad ass.

What about the 4 part vocal harmony....NO BACKUP SINGERS!!

Daddy said...

They were in perfect form. I dont know how in the hell chris keeps is voice all night.

I have never seen them jam that nasty.

tigernation said...

Bulldog!!!!!

You better make those picks so I can taunt you when you lose them all!!!

I can't wait to take your money!!!

How is the job hunt going?

bulldogbite said...

I may get one or two wrong other than that its my tourney to lose. Since my brilliant showing in the SEC tourney my luck must change.

Sounds as if yall had a nice time at the crowe's show. How did you get home? Hopefully the driver was shirtless.

A must see is the new series "Sons & Daughters" It had me laughing outloud to myself.

My job hunt is going about as well as your workout routine! Slowly but surely! And don't call me Shirely!

bulldogbite said...

this blog needs spell check, not an english major but played one on TV.

tigernation said...

Bulldog, you are just full of the jokes today......the old lady must be treating you right!!!

I drove myself home last night since I only had 3 beers. I think I might be becoming more respnsible in my old age.......nope, I was mistaken on that one.

The workout is actually not going too bad. I'm only doing 3 days a week but it is a good hour to hour and a half of weight training. Still haven't worked my way up to running yet.

I might start jogging down to the Riverside Military Academy track and running some laps....HA!

No spell check for me....I just type, re-read and still manage to post numerous grammar, spelling and punctuation errors. AU education hard at work.

bulldogbite said...

Meyer: Gators will play without RBs if no one steps up

Really?

tigernation said...

Yeah I read about that. He is a complete moron.

If he was so upset with his RB play then why in the hell did he sign 467 receivers this year?

He needs to worry about the O-line that he is replacing. If I remember correclty his o-line gave up tons of sacks and hurries.....bad o-line = no running game!!

I hope we beat the holy hell out of him when he comes to AU this year.

What about his QB's? He only has 2 and one is a true freshman....if Leak goes down behind that shitty OL then he is gonna place his season in the hands of a true freshman QB??!?!

I am no expert but I don't think starting a true fresman QB in the SEC is ever a good idea.

Urban "Crier"....Urban "Myth"....Old "Bawl" Coach.....Faggot Ass Pussy...

What do those words have in common you ask?....they all apply to Urban Meyer.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Glad to hear you girls had a good time at the Crowes show.

Bulldog - Sons and Daughters cracks me up

Urban is a fool

King of Tigerland said...

what is the deal with the pool. what do I do? where do I go?

tigernation said...

Did you get the email from dr?

King of Tigerland said...

yes I just checked my yahoo account and we are good to go

stroke of brilliance, dr.

How were the Crowes?

After I lost 6 building over the ridge and all the poeple coming my way, I locked my keys in my car at class and had to pay $135 to get them out. Ridiculous day!

I am ready for this weekend.

King of Tigerland said...

and no I am not a lucky punk, nation.........only goooood!

tigernation said...

You are lucky you won the pools so you can pay to get your keys out of your car!!!!!!!!!!

The Crowes were incredible. It's almost like going back in time and watching a band in 1972.

shakeyour$maker said...

You would remember those 1972 shows wouldn`t you Grampa Nation. How do the bands today compare with those from your generation...The Baby Boomers?

shakeyour$maker said...

Kingdom,

Sorry to hear about your shitty Tuesday. I hope this weekend will get you back in good spirits. Nothing like some spring football to get you pumped up.

Nation- While you were sound asleep this morning...I was driving back from ATL at 5:00am. I feel like a zombie now...but it was so worth it. I wish we would have had more time to hang out before hand...but I guess there will be plenty of time for that this weekend.

shakeyour$maker said...

I`ve got a shit load of stuff to do this afternoon. I guess I will talk to you girls later on....and remember,


"NOBODY DOES IT LIKE BRICE DOES IT!!"

shakeyour$maker said...

Robert....where`s Annie?

tigernation said...

AAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

STREEEETCH DISCOVERY ROBERT!!!!!!!

IN MY FAAACE!!!!!

Dr.Feelgood said...

Thank you Kingdom I am somewhat a genius.

tigernation said...

Idiot savant?.....like Rain Man!

King of Tigerland said...

Just got back from the Dr. and they basically told me to find a new job wihtout all the bs....something I have been trying for months now. $, the stomach from hell has returned.

I am so ready for this weekend...and I am willing to put my two weeks notice in over it as well if they try to make me work.

Daddy said...

Everyone coming for A-day get ready cuz I should have some nasty come this weekend!

shakeyour$maker said...

I know how you are feelin Kingdom. It will go away....just don`t let yourself get worked up and uneasy...that is what will make that thing go crazy. Hang in there man....you`ll find something else real soon.

shakeyour$maker said...

Dr,

"Memphis in May" concert schedule?

I heard they have been looking to get the "Bo Tucker Band" to headline the event...but they may have trouble getting that great band, because the keyboard player is in jail somewhere, the bassist is selling urnal cakes in Pittsburgh (WTF), the slide guitarist has hemroids, and the drummer is a midget and an alcoholic.

tigernation said...

Its called "itchy butt".

My buddy Darrell who lives in Asheville, NC just found a 190 acre farm where they have festivals that you can rent out for $300 a weekend. Complete with a stage, porta potties and a 2 bedroom cabin. He said it is beautiful and he really wants to get a huge party together over the summer......

Shakes, this may be a festival that the "Bo Tucker Band" could play...Or perhaps the "Bo Tucker Trio" in an acoustic gig. Probably not much of a pay day but it would be nice to go camp and play if we could round up a really big crew.....say 50 people between us. We could do it if we got to work right now.

Just a thought.

Daddy said...

Let the games begin little girls!

When is everyone coming down this weekend? I cant think of a better weekend than a little college football and a little college basketball.

tigernation said...

I will be there about lunch time on friday..

College b-ball, football, and some recording time.....

Bo Tucker Trio returns!!!

Daddy said...

you think that the Bo Tucker band will allow some select fans to watch while you record?

Daddy said...

I get out of class at 1 on friday, and I will be ready to put on an illegal smile as soon as I get out.

Daddy said...

Bout to go take a nasty test, everyone wish me good luck, I will need it.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Yeah I think the Bo Tucker Band is headlining Friday evening. List comes out the 20th for the line up. I will keep you all informed.

Less than an hour til the massacre begins. March Madness has nothing on football season, but it is a great thing to pass a couple of weeks off waiting til kickoff

tigernation said...

All fans are welcome to watch the recording process......as long as they can be quiet.

Good luck on the test.

We must meet up right when you get out of class tomorrow.

shakeyour$maker said...

I guess one of those redneck Bammers sent a "Bomb Threat" package to the arena in San Diego so they could delay the ass whippin Bama will receive today.

Games have been postponed until later because of the threat. Thanks to all Bama fans.


By the way, Jamarcus Ware from the Cowboys is coming to our office in just a few minutes to finalize a purchase.

tigernation said...

Do not ever capitalize the word "bammer".

It is a derogatory term used to describe one of the most genetically basic life forms on the planet....excluding the good Dr. when he is on good behavior.

shakeyour$maker said...

Jamarcus should be here any minute. I`m pretty excited to meet this guy because he was pretty damn good last year.

bulldogbite said...

I hope everyone has tuned into CBS online to watch every game for free via streaming video.

It even has a "boss button" that quickly changes the screen to a spread sheet. Classic!

Dr.Feelgood said...

Tell Jemarcus I will whoop his black ass.

Redneck bomb I didn't recall hearing someone through a Molotov cocktail in the arena. Probably one of those fucking Wisconsins scared of the brothers BAma is bringin to San Diego

Dr.Feelgood said...

I have dial-up at work it blows I can't do any of the online stuff

tigernation said...

Bulldog - CBS online or CBS sportsline?

I guess i could just try them both.

I took Seton Hall and Oklahoma but I think they might let me down.

Dr.Feelgood said...

cbs.com has it but my dial up won't pull it up

Dr.Feelgood said...

I heard pre-tourney that Witchita was legit and could possibly beat Tenn in the 2nd

Dr.Feelgood said...

I can't lose the BC game Pacific is shooting over 50% from the floor and 9-16 from three point

Thats fucking insane

tigernation said...

I don't need to lose it either but I really hate BC and that rat-looking ass clown Dudley.....double-edged sword in that game.

Dr.Feelgood said...

I believe they are going to pull it out. thank the Lord.

I didn't weigh in they had to leave the ACC championship game fly to San Diego and play the early game. It was one of the shortest breaks and longest trips of any of the top seeds

shakeyour$maker said...

Cowboys LB that is coming is not Jamarcus...but Lamarcus Ware. Sorry for the confusion. I will get an autograph for everyone.

Fuck Oklahoma!

Daddy said...

For those who are from or near Oxford, al,
That is the worst fucking place on the planet, I will explain later, too long for blog.

nation,
I will be ready. And I can be so still and quiet, like a mouse.

That BC game was pretty scary.

Seton Hall can suck it too.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Oklahoma has choked all year. Tennessee looks like shit. What booster paid off to have them a 2 seed??


La or De same thing just a nigged up Marcus

tigernation said...

I think the booster's name is ......hmmmmmm.....Logan Young?

Oklahoma, UT, and Shiton Hall all can suck it!!

Daddy said...

anyone see that shit in the tennessee game!

Dr.Feelgood said...

explain daddy

i think logan would pay to keep TN from being a 2

Daddy said...

Tie ballgame, 2.4 sec left, UT throws the ball inbounds and throws up a deperation shot that goes in with .4 secs remaining to win the game. Thank God, I had Tenn winning the next round too.

Daddy said...

Alabama game was scary too

Dr.Feelgood said...

Roll Tide to all you

Yeah I have been watching the scoreboard on sportsline.com so I have seen no live action since earlier.

Daddy said...

Way to go Dr. and Chairman. Don't get used to it though, still a lotta more games to play!

Dr.Feelgood said...

Please address me as Warren G when referring to the tourney pool.

I am kind of worried about today. I hit some upsets yesterday, and when I looked today I don't really have any picked.

Drink. Fight. And Be Irish

Daddy said...

So sorry, good Dr.."Mount up!"

You never know what is gonna happen in the first round and even second round of the NCAA tournament.

Dr.Feelgood said...

yeah Chairman went perfect inhis office pool yesterday, and they are doing the upset scoring so he got 7 points for A&M and Monatan, along with UW MIl

Dr.Feelgood said...

lucky bastard

Daddy said...

No shit!

Dr.,
Do you think that if the piggies get past bucknell that your no. 1 seed Memphis can get past them?

Dr.Feelgood said...

Yes, the piggies look like shit today and have 8 min to pull it off against Bucknell. Ark. came back from 18 to beat BAma beat a highly overrated Tennessee team. IF, and all caps IF, they beat ?Bucknell I think MEmphis beats them by 15 or more

Dr.Feelgood said...

upsets everywhere

Dr.Feelgood said...

Thanks fellas I wenjoyed blogging solo all afternoon Friday

tigernation said...

Sorry about that Dr. I was on the road all day with a mean hangover.

I usually leave Auburn with a bad hangover but this time I arrived that way...go figure.

Found some good A-day pics of Ronnie, Carnell and coach Gran recruiting Caleb King, that RB from Parkview in ATL. I don't know if that is legal but I hope it worked.

I just can't get over seeing Ronnie, Caddy, Carlos, Devin, DT, Spencer(crooked-eyes), Dexter, and some of the others at the bar on Friday.....

I really feel like I could kick Ronnie B's ass in a fight...I really feel that way.

And I know I can out bench press his ass, even if his back is 8 feet wide.

Anyway, great time was had in AU with the old boys this weekend......almost like going back in time, I just didn't have to miss any class this time.

tigernation said...

Well, at least Auburn can win National Titles in something......women's swimming.

Came from behind to upset the bulldogs over the weekend.

Not that it is something to brag about but I hope the men can pull one out this weekend.

Sure would be nice to get a title in something else before I die.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Congrats to the womens swimming team. job well done.

good to hear you all had a good time at the a-day weekend. i will have my memory lane weekend a week from saturday. any unusual standouts on the field saturday?? any surprises??

tough loss for all you UNC final four people, I see two Alabama grads at the top. I know there is along way to go but I have to take advantage of first place while it lasts.

Any thoughts on Sopranos last evening?? Not real excited about the direction it looks like this season is heading.

tigernation said...

No real standouts at A-Day.

Pretty vanilla on both sides but Tommy Trott might see lots of touches next year. Nice hands and decent speed for a 6'5" 240 tight end.

I loved seeing Tre Smith get "De-cleated" by Savage(nice name if you can hit) at safety....bad ass hit right under the chin.

Sopranos: Not sure what to make of the dream sequence with no accent and a different sounding wife and kids.....it's like he knows he is dreaming but can't wake up.

AJ will join the family biz and kill Junior. Silvio will have problems controlling the rest of the guys.

I just hope Tony wakes up and is ok. I would hate to go through the last season with him in the bed with a feeding tube.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Yeah I feel like AJ is moving towards the waste management industry.

I need more of Tony in the final episodes and not Kevin Finnity or whatever it is. Looks nlike he will be on the tube for at least a couple of episodes

tigernation said...

Yeah, Tony will be aroung but I like the real Tony better than the faggish Kevin.

He was whining to his wife about getting slapped by a bald monk.

Dr.Feelgood said...

what a bitch. i hope christopher steps up

tigernation said...

Slow day on the blog I guess........

Daddy?

Shakemoneymoney?

bulldognutsacpunklicker?

Dr.Feelgood said...

Slow day Rainy day.... Monday

Today really blows

tigernation said...

Once again Bama tries and fails to top Auburn.......

In a feeble attempt to out do Junior Rosegreen's Wonderlick score from last year, Bama Linebacker Freddie Roach scored an 8 on the aptitude test.

Not to be confused with the reported 2 that Rosegreen pulled out last year, or the astronomical 6 posted by Vince Young in his first attempt(they say he has a 15 now).

Good try Freddie, 8 is pretty low, but 2 and 6 are lower.

shakeyour$maker said...

Here I am....Here I muffuckin am.

Yes, today has sucked. I am feeling worse than I did all weekend, and have had to work all day long to catch up on my BS work.


This weekend`s Bball games completely ruined my bracket.

Dr.-It looks like you are running away with this thing. I wish I would`ve gotten some tips from you on pickin these games.

shakeyour$maker said...

http://www.al.com/sports/mobileregister/pfinebaum.ssf?/base/sports/114267731814930.xml&coll=3

Finebaum is already showin some love for the Tigers of `06!!! I can`t wait to see what he has in store for the Tide`s preseason outlook for `06.

Daddy said...

Awesome weekend. Glad everyone could come down. I hope that uncle Rico wasnt too tired and cranky today.....sorry nation, I had to!

I am not gonna be able to get on the blog much this week. They like to pile that school work up the week before spring break.

Buscemi definitely took another route with the dream sequences, but I wasnt completely disappointed with The Sopranos episode. I think it is about to get rugged.

Dr.
Congrats, doing pretty well in the pool.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Memphis in May Line-up was released yesterday. Check it out at memphisinmay.org.

Kind of interesting line-up, their big thing is 7 performers already in the hall of fame. It would be a good road trip if you all are interested.

tigernation said...

Road Trips are always a big possibility. Especially when there are good bands involved.

Do y'all need my address so you can send me the money for the pool? When 'Nova wins I will be collecting!!!!!

Dr.Feelgood said...

Nova, c'mon. UCONN got there scare with Albany, learned that they have to put a team down and keep them down with Kentucky. After the Sweet 16 victory they get Witchita State or Geo. Mason.

I would go ahead and address checks to the Dr.

Also for those of you who are keeping up with my Rookie season in fantasy NASCAR season. I just cruised into a 70 point first place lead after my drivers finished 1,3,4, and 15 at Atlanta yesterday

tigernation said...

Nova's gonna do it. 4 guards that can shoot, defend, and rebound is a matchup nightmare.

I really just hope BC and that rat-looking Dudley get beat. I can't stand to look at him when he makes a good play. He looks like he has to shit really bad but can't get it out.

Dr.Feelgood said...

I think everyone but your cinderella teams, Gonzaga, and Georgetown has a shot at the title.

WVU, Wash, and LSU would need to pull some major luck, but Tex, BC, NOVA, Duke, UCONN, Fla, and Memph could all do it

tigernation said...

I, like everyone else, have Duke in the Final Four. That being said, I would love to see LSU put it to the Dookies.

Dr.Feelgood said...

Chairman has LSU beating them. Tyrus Thomas has to step up. He hasn't been playing that well since the injury. Baby and Shelden will be a good matchup, but the way Sheldon has played this tourney, he will be tough, and Reddick is just a badass.

tigernation said...

I feel comfortable saying that Redick is the best shooter(college) ever. All the old guys i have talked to(my dad's friends daddy and shakes) say they have never seen somebody shoot like him on the run. Stop and pop baby, STOP AND POP!

Dr.Feelgood said...

Yeah I agree he really is unbelievable. Adam Morrison is good but he is not near as dependable as Reddick. I guess you could make the argument that Reddick has the supporting cast
