Gotta Go with Henry Hill

Lewis Grizzard, the late, great columnist of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was a devout Georgia fan. So much so that he once left blank space where his column appeared rather than to praise Georgia Tech after a win over his beloved Bulldogs.

Which brings me to Georgia’s whippin’ of my Yellow Jackets on Saturday. I’m going with this Henry Hill classic from the movie Good Fellas: “The way I saw it, everybody takes a beating sometime.”

On the plus side, the kickoff took place at noon. Thus, I did not tailgate all day prior to watching the Titanic sink.

 

While out with Patti, I recently encountered a young lady with a sweet baby girl. I had to ask for  a name, and I was told “Wolfgang.” And her explanation? “I like Mozart. We call her Wolfie.”

Pretty cool, huh?

 

Ever notice how smart football coaches cover the point spread?

 

Kentucky’s Mark Stoops is the longest-tenured coach in the SEC East division. Let that sink in for a moment. Talk about a reality show, follow several of these storied programs while they shop for their next hopeful to lead them to the Promise Land.

 

Finally, in remembrance of Hall of Fame coach Tom Landry, these beauties:

From Walt Garrison, after the former Cowboys fullback was asked if Landry ever smiled: “I don’t know. I only played there for nine years.”

And from Don Meredith, who played quarterback for the Cowboys and observed: “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.”
