4 More Days Until The Tide Rolls In

I don’t know how many of you are from the South, especially the great state of Alabama. But ever since January 10th Alabama fans have only had one things on their mind and that’s dominating Michigan. With that being said we all know what happened the last time Alabama played a team from Michigan. If not let me recap the slaughter. Bama took out 3 quarterbacks, our 4th string running back was scoring touchdowns, and well lets just say Bama made Michigan State look like, well a team from the BIG 10.

Capital One Bowl

With that said lets move right along to the Michigan game. I hate to break it to all you Michigan fans out there but Bama will not lose this game. In fact we are going to dominate you from the first snap until the last whistle. Don’t be mad, we’re saving you the embarrassment of being undefeated and losing to a crap level BIG10 school later in the season.

Predictions of whats to come:

Denard Robinson rushes for < 100 yards
Michgan will have 3+ turnovers
Vinnie Sunseri takes a pick 6 to the house
Eddie Lacy + Jalston Folwer + TJ Yeldon rush over > 200 yards
Michigan fans leaving by halftime
Jesse Williams lines up at fullback on a goaline play
Bama will convert a 4th down off a trick play
With all that said my final score prediction is: Alabama 41 Michigan 13

I’ve left you with a few hype videos to get you crunked up for your viewing pleasure:


Just remember at some places they play football at Alabama we live to dominate the BIG10.

Severed Limbs, Missing Flesh, and Dead Seals… Oh Yea! It’s Shark Week Baby!

The 2012 London Olympics has been a fun ride. I really enjoyed the fresh opening ceremony with Mary Poppins battling Lord Valdemort. I watched in awe as Gabby Douglas won her gold medal in gymnastics. It was awesome witnessing history when Michael Phelps broke the all-time record for Olympic medals. I caught the super cocky Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt reaffirm his status as the fastest man in the world.  I followed every detail of the Chinese Badminton scandal and I got a good laugh when that Judo fighter got kicked out for eating pot brownies – which he  claimed to have ingested unknowingly. Right.

In short the #Lympics were awesome.  Merica’ dominated and stole the show (as usual). We took home da golds and let the rest of the world know we failed P.E. cause Merica’ don’t play.

Now let us get onto more important things……such as the start of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.

Shark Week is a special time of the year. It’s an opportunity for the different nations to put aside their differences and unify around their shared love of shark-based TV programming. Conflicts and grudges are forgotten and we reconnect with what unites us as humanity – namely the fact that we are all horrified yet fascinated by sharks.

In light of the Summer Olympics and the 25th anniversary of Shark week coming up I think it is important to shed some awareness on the people who overly vamp the world up for these events.  Below you can see the differences and quite possibly even some similarities:

Olympic Fans: Have been preparing and promoting the Summer Olympics since the last Winter Olympics.  Most likely have had Facebook invites to their homes for their friends and families to enjoy veggies together while they watch the curling session.

Shark Week Fans: Besides the people that obviously are working for the marketing team. Shark week fans have no idea when it’s going to start until at least a day and half into the week. And then they act as if they have been waiting for this week ever since…. Wait how long ago was the last shark week? Do we have one every year?

Olympic Fans: Will set their alarms and wake up at 3am just so they can watch the diving match.

Shark Week Fans:  Will watch sharks diving their teeth into people’s throats all the way up until the bar closes and then… Go to bed.  I mean I can TiVo it or rent it when it comes to DVD.

Olympic Fans: Are intellectual human beings.  They actually care about culture and geography.

Shark Week Fans: Not so much into brains as they are into their beer.  But hey, we can at least name off 3 different oceans the sharks have attacked in.

Olympic Fans: Most likely athletes or were athletes at some point or have now just figured out that working out can make you look like you are an athlete thus meaning if you watch the Olympics you will look even more like an athlete.

Shark Week Fans: Hipsters or want to be hipsters.  People who just want to seem like they’re in the ‘know’ with what’s cool these days.  Couples or friends that think it’s cool to dress as a shark and victim for Halloween.

Olympic Fans: Care about team work, playing fair, and dominating China every opportunity they get.

Shark Week Fans: Don’t currr as long as a shark sinks its teeth into some fresh meat.

Ok, so maybe the simularities were a long shot.  What we can conclude with is that the Olympics fans are good wholesome people who care about the world USA dominating the world, and Shark week viewers just want to see more people die in the ocean…

Honey Badger Don’t Care……… To Play At LSU

Months after proclaiming he was changed, humbled and ready to lead, Honey Badger’s selfishness cost him his LSU career, as Les Miles announced his dismissal at a news conference Friday. LSU dismissed 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist  for violating school and team rules. Mathieu was suspended last year for one game for reportedly using synthetic marijuana but LSU never confirmed the specific reason of the suspension. HB let his team and a fan base down by once again thinking of himself first.

Below you can see how the LSU fans are holding up after hearing their beloved honey badger getting kicked off of LSU. Here’s reactions from the infamous Tigerdroppings forum. Enjoy.

LSU Fan Reactions:


“This is not happening, this is not happening, this is not happening”

“I’M FREAKIN’ OUT MAN!!!!”

“Mathieu is a fool”  -Michael Dyer

“Who wears the #7 now? maybe Landon Col…… nevermind!”

“Jeepers, I hope that all the academic credits earned by this fine young student/athlete will transfer so that his educational goals remain on track lolz”

“Why? There is a pattern here. Les should be used to players doing whatever they want”

“TM7 transfers to Penn State”

“I made the cutest Honey Badger dress last season and it’s useless now”

“We just cant have nice things”

“This sucks, can someone bring me a gallon of crown and keep me company?”

“I’m jumping out my window. it’s not worth it anymore”

“hes like our own ricky williams”

“honey badger really doesn’t give a shite”

“Well look on the bright side, at least we’re not Penn St.”

“FOR SALE: Honey Badger takes what he wants. T shirt. Cheap”

“#FreeHoneyBadger”

“Smokers gonna smoke”

“I blame Lane Kiffen. He definitely had something to do with this.”

“Popeye needs his spinach yo”

“Frick drug testing 20 year olds for weed. Weed never hurt anyone. If their was drug testing in 70’s. No one would of played.”“It hurt TM!!! But you are right not doing illegal drugs is a bit much to ask of people”

“My un follow button is going ham”

“Anyone know if it’s too late to get any penn state dbs?”

“It’s like the National Championship all over again”

Here’s a fresh YouTube video I found summarizing life as honey badger.

It is true the honey badger don’t care and takes what he wants, with the exception of staying on the LSU football team and winning National titles.

Even Marie Laveau couldn’t have saved LSU

For all of you who don’t know who Marie Laveau was, she was the meanest, baddest, voodoo queen of New Orleans back in the day.

LSU thought they could come in the dome and steal our joy but there wasn’t anyone, anything, or any voodoo queen stopping the Tide on the night of the 9th!

(P.S. for a shorter lesson on Ms. Laveau’s voodoo magic check out this song: Bobby Bare – Marie Laveau)

When Alabama senior linebacker Courtney Upshaw addressed his teammates earlier this week, he kept coming back to one word.

Legendary.

“What I told them was, ‘Let’s be legendary,’ ” Upshaw recounted. “And that’s all they heard from me over and over again during the game.”

Oh what a legendary night it was! History was made as Alabama shutout LSU 21-0 for the first time in a BCS National Championship game. I’d like to welcome back our #14th National Championship to “title town“!

Here’s the pics and video from a fun week in the Big Easy:

Rooms booked, tickets on the way, let the countdown begin!

I woke up last week, immediately and anxiously checking my email to see if there was one from the Alabama Athletic Department. Well there it was and it said my ticket request for the 2012 NCG had been filled.  Thank God, and parental Tide Pride points!

If you had asked me six weeks ago yesterday, after a 9-6 overtime loss on November 5th, if I thought Bama had a chance to get back in the title hunt, my answer would have been a resounding “NO”.  I remember walking out of the game with my dreams of going to the NCG (that’s the National Championship Game for all you who are yet to Talk Fresh) a mere dream.  I was figuring we’d have to settle for a measly BCS bowl that wasn’t the NCG and play Boise (yes, Bama fans are spoiled, and yes, any bowl game other than the NCG is “measley”).

But against all odds, a “measley BCS bowl” was not meant to be.  In the weeks to come, the stars aligned perfectly, mercury came out of retrograde, and critical teams kept falling and Bama kept winning.

Next thing you know, we have Alabama one game away from sealing the deal with a win against Auburn. After a resounding old-fashioned spanking on The Plains (aka: Auburn, Alabama), all we could do was watch as Oklahoma basically gave OK State the game to try and slide into the NCG.  And somehow, everything magically fell into place for the first SEC vs SEC BCS National Championship Game. Some call it the rematch of the century, and I have to agree.

What it took for Alabama to get back in the title picture:

Week 11: TCU beating Boise St.36-35

Week 12: Iowa St. beating Oklahoma St. 37-31, USC beating Oregon 38-35, and Baylor beating Oklahoma 45-38

You have to understand a few things about being from Alabama.  We take our football very seriously down here.  You can’t claim to be an Alabama fan if you don’t have high expectations for the Tide.  If we’re not going to the NCG, we might as well not be playing in a bowl.  Winning championships is what we do (#14 coming soon), and the fanbase expects no less.  Just ask Bill Curry, a former Bama coach who went 10-1 in 1989, lost to our rival Auburn 3 years in a row, was the national coach of the year, and was fired the next year because you DO NOT lose to Auburn.   The quote “At some places they play football, at Alabama, we live it” is actually very true around here (and apparently it’s true for the big town of Gordo, Alabama, too lolz– check out this picture).

Now here we are.  Rooms booked, tickets on the way, and it’s time to start the countdown to the rematch of the century. 22 days from now we will be leaving for New Orleans to experience the big easy and Bama’s 14 National Championship. All I have to say is you mad Okey St?

Until next time Stay Fresh My Friends and Roll Tide!
