Corn Pop Joe

Joe Biden never made it to a Wheaties box, because of the asthma that kept him out of Viet Nam, but not life guarding or college sports. He has related though, an incident where he fought off a serial gang offender. At least, I think that's what he said!

Cup of Joe for a Joe

Green Beans Coffee has a program, Cup of Joe for a Joe that I like to contribute to now and then. Here's a sample of some of the responses I get from the troops:

The link is here: GreenBeansCoffeeCompany if you want to give a cup or three.  I don't know about you, but the cost of a cup of coffee to someone far away from home serving their country is a small price to pay. And the rewards are worth it to me! Nobody is paying me to say this, because it makes you feel good! It's  $2.50/ cup. You can write a short message, as I usually do, or not. You can be anonymous if you wish or you can even post your email addy if you are open to corresponding.

C'mon! You've got $2.50 in the couch cushions! Give it a try! You'll be glad you did!

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head, a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

The Trouble With Tribble

We have heard scornfully that she was Trump's FEMA employee. That is true, however, the former FEMA Official arrested was Ahsha Tribble, hired by FEMA in 2015, during the Obama administration.
"She has traveled with President Obama and Vice President Biden to disaster areas to provide technical support on Federal response activities."
Some of it must have rubbed off!

Happiness Is Doubled And Sorrows Halved In The Company Of A Friend

Three days before Hurricane Dorian lashed the coast of South Carolina, my friend of 40+ years called her son saying to him only, “Help!” and hung up the phone.  He rushed to her home to find her in respiratory distress.  An ambulance was called, and she was admitted to the critical care unit.
Two years ago, she nearly died.  This time around the situation was not as dire, but she remains in critical care.
Her son and widowed daughter-in-law insisted while my friend remained sedated and intubated there was no need for me to travel to see her.  I have waited on pins and needles for some sign of improvement in my friend’s condition.  It’s approaching two weeks now without success in removing the ventilation tubing or easing up on the sedation that is being administered.
I was told only two days ago that she was also being treated for pneumonia.  I feel strongly that I must leave to be with my best friend.
I haven’t spoken with co-bloggers Proof or Sig94 about posting during my absence, first because I have no notion of how long I will be away and secondly, because they have their own lives to lead and I don’t want to lay that burden at their feet.
I have queued up the very popular regular weekly features of “A Walk On The Wild Side” and “Flowing Curves Of Beauty” through the end of October.  I have notified my neighbor to scoop up my mail and keep an eye peeled on my house while I’m away.
I apologize to my readers for this abrupt notice and hope you will not abandon this blog because I have made the choice to be with my friend.
A quote I love that has been attributed to blind and deaf American authoress Helen Keller seems most appropriate for this moment in time:
“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,
than alone in the light.”

Dem Debate Clash With NFL Football Equals Unwatchable Clown Car Shitshow


Alabama Crimson Tide VS South Carolina Gamecocks

A lot of people in the run-up to the game between the Tide and the Gamecocks are happy to remind you the last time Bama lost to an SEC East team was nine years ago in Columbia, SC when the Cocks won 35-21.

That year the Gamecocks were led by “Head Ball Coach” Steve Spurrier; the pipsqueak  known as “Darth Visor” for throwing and stomping on his visor when he succumbed to fits of anger like a brat kicking and screaming on the floor of a toy store.  The same Steve Spurrier who left a successful Florida Gators program to coach in the NFL when somebody pissed him off.  The same Spurrier who left the Redskins to come crawling back to college ball when things got bad.

Three years before he resigned in the middle of his 11th season at South Carolina, Spurrier threw some shade at Nick Saban saying, “He’s got a nice little gig going.  A little bit like Calipari.  He tells guys, ‘Hey three years from now, you’re going to be a first-round pick and go.’  If he wants to be the greatest coach or one of the greatest coaches in college football, to me, he has to go somewhere besides Alabama and win, because they’ve always won there at Alabama.”

During his post-game press conference following Bama’s drubbing of New Mexico State, Saban was asked, “What do you get out of a game like this and do you think this level of competition can get you ready for an SEC game a week later?”

His response was, “ Well look, I’ve talked about this before.  We’ve tried to schedule the best teams we can schedule and we’re trying to do that in the future as well.  We can only play the people who are willing to play us. I’ve said my opinion about playing 12 Power-5 schools.  That’s what I would rather do, but a lot of other people don’t agree with that.  I’d rather play 10 SEC games and then play two other Power-5 schools, so all the games are exciting for the fans; all the games are good football.  You wouldn’t have to go undefeated to get into the playoffs because you’d play a more quality schedule.”

“I’ve been through and covered that ground a hundred times.  If you asked me if we should play 12 Power-5 teams my answer would be Yes,” Saban continued.

So…the Tide rolls into Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia to do battle with Coach Muschamp’s Gamecocks.  Muschamp took some heat for his decision to punt at midfield on fourth-and-one in the fourth quarter leading the Tarheels 20-17.  They ended up losing to the Heels 24-20.  Muschamp confessed, “ We played the percentages there with our defense, but I was obviously wrong.”

In that game, starting QB Jake Bentley suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury to his foot giving second string QB Ryan Hilinski the reins against Charleston Southern last Saturday.  Hilinksi completed 24 of 30 passes for 282 yards in their 72-10 victory.

Will Muschamp was an elite defensive coordinator back in the day, but as head coach he’s nowhere near solving the SEC.  It didn’t happen in four seasons at Florida and it hasn’t happened yet in Columbia.  He’s 12-12 through three seasons at South Carolina.

The atmosphere at Williams-Brice Stadium will be electric for Gamecocks fans.  I had tickets to the game but will not be able to attend.  My best friend was hospitalized in critical condition the day before Hurricane Dorian lashed the South Carolina coast and I have chosen to be with my friend.

I know, however, Coach Saban’s murderball will be too much for Muschamp to handle.  The game will be largely lopsided in favor of the Tide as Tua takes advantage of an inexperienced Gamecocks secondary.  Bama’s defense will undoubtedly force multiple turnovers giving Bama another blowout victory to start the 2019 season.
