Big Game Tomorrow

Bama vs. Georgia

My wife’s cousin is the O-Line coach at Georgia but played with the Crimson Tide:

Let the record show that Will Friend did not walk into this interview session wanting to talk about where he played college football: Alabama.

Yes, the man entrusted with coaching Georgia’s offensive line, whose performance may very well decide the SEC championship, is an alum of the other school.

“I can’t believe you all are asking about a bad player 20 years ago,” Friend said, laughing. “You’ve got all these good players playing in a game in four days and you’re asking about a bad one 20 years ago.”

So anyway, as a bad offensive lineman, Friend was on an Alabama team that went to three SEC championship games. But he only played in the first two. He had to sit out the third one because of a knee injury.

  1. “My wife’s cousin…”

    Kells, how about getting your over-achieving playmate to stop his name dropping? He’s starting to make the rest of us peasants feel inferior 😉

    [but hey, at least I am only 1 degree of separation from both Spielberg, Bacon and Seacrest: and that with $7 will get me a cup of Starbucks most expensive coffee 😀 )


    I live in a house divided. I sort of like Bama, but my wife is from Georgia and has always been an Uga fan. Sounds like it’s going to be a rough game in my house 😉

  2. In 1785 Thomas Jefferson wrote to his fifteen-year-old nephew, Peter Carr, regarding what he considered the best form of exercise: “…I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks.”

  3. Speaking of playing with guns, today was my annual FDLE recertification qualifications for the Colt AR-15, S&W 9mm, S&W 6 shot revolver, and Remington 870 12 ga. pump shotgun. I’m tired and going to bed. Have a great day tomorrow, all.
