The Ugliest "W" Ever
Errands, errands, errands. MIchelle & I spent the day doing little errands. I restrung my new Strat. We went to the hardware store. We went to Target. She took a nap. I listened to the new record.
Then it was time for Lynn Oliver's birthday party. Lynn is ZBB's manager. We met a bunch of folks at the Cypress Grill Pint & Plate in midtown for the Georgia/South Carolina game. Lynn is from South Carolina (& went to SC). So, naturally, we were enemies tonight.
It was a sloppy game. We looked like a #21 team. I guess that I've been spoiled over the past 8-9 years. Sure, we had a year where Joe Tereshinski was our quarterback. But, for those few games with Jow T., we had 4 years of David Green, a year with Shockley, & 2 & 1/2 years of Stafford. Joe Cox seems physically unable to be the presence that we need.
Lots of fumbles, pic-6, dropped passes, bad passes, & not enough Richard Samuel. South Carolina had 80+ plays on offense to our 50+. Weak. We were lucky to win this one. Next week will be even harder. Arkansas has been gunning for us since spring practice.
