Update from Waynesboro

Honestly, who cares about Brookwood-Parkview?

The Burke County Bears currently lead the Mustangs 14-0 at halftime. Listen live over the internet on South Effingham's flagship station.

I'll post a final score as soon as it's over.

My last post on Katrina.

It's been a while since the Louisiana local governments failed to take responsibility for their actions. Now its time to laugh about it. Go here...

Good stuff.

A Walk on the Supply Side

Democrats, like Bill Clinton, continue to come out of the woodwork and bash the Bush tax cuts. “I got a tax cut I didn’t even ask for, while millions of Americans are struggling just to get by.”

First of all, anyone that didn’t want their taxes cut can be my guest and send a personal check to the federal government in the amount of the difference they’re saved by the rate reductions. If you trust the government to spend your own money so wisely, go ahead and give your money back. Second of all, as a result of the rate reductions, which are giving people more incentives to save, work, and invest, federal revenues are higher than when Clinton left office. Third, entitlement spending on healthcare, welfare, and education has more than DOUBLED under Bush ( Midway through Clinton’s term, the unemployment rate was 5.6% (September, ’95). Any guesses as to what it is right now in September of ‘05? 4.9% ( So I’m confused, there’s more money in the treasury now, MUCH more of our tax dollars are going to the poor and to education, the black homeownership rate is at its highest level in history, the unemployment rate is lower than Clinton’s average, and yet "this is the worst economy since the Great Depression" - John Kerry, “George Bush hates black people” – Kanye West, and "Bill Clinton was the first black president” – Jesse Jackson. Is there any rationale for these kind of statements? Any actual real facts to back them up? Oh yeah, I forgot, there is one huge fact: George Bush has an “R” next to his name.

What else do black leaders want Bush to do? Do they want him to go to each black person's house in America individually, hug them and watch "Martin" with them? How many more dollars do they want us to throw at the problem?

Again, I'm no Bush cheerleader. There's a lot he's done that I disagree with (particularly the out of control spending, most recently illustrated by an FDR-like response to Katrina). But next time you see an Eminem video or hear John Kerry on CNN, remember that these people probably have no understanding of supply-side economics.

Stew's Lock of the Week

St. Paul's Lutheran School -8


Blessed Sacrament School

Don't expect the Lutherans to be as fiery as they were when the 95 Theses were nailed to Wittenburg Cathedral some years ago. This new program has yet to prove itself.
The Irish have at the helm a former tail back, one Tommy Butler. His tenure as AD has seen the rebuilding of a once declining program. Not only have the BSS boys for years fueled the machine that is BC, but they are playing in their own back yard... Daffin Park.
This Saturday's game at 10:00 a.m. is to be a cake walk for the Mighty Irish by 16.

Note: The game will have Kevin Sheehan working the chains.

Will's Lock of the Week

Last Week:

Wow! Didn't see that coming. Virginia Tech got happy-go-jacky on the Yellow Jackets like a donkey eatin' a waffle! I quit watching at halftime, but I think the Hokies' defense and special teams scored 28 points. They sent the rest of the conference an invitation to the ACC Championship party. It said, "BYOB: Bring your own BOOYAH!"

Record: 2-2

This Week's Lock:

Rutgers -1

Are the Panthers really getting a point against Rutgers?!? I know Pitt is down this year but they can't be that bad. Take Pittsburgh but buy a half-point just in case. I say Panthers by 8.

Note: This game is Friday night, so jump on it now.

BC vs. BC

The Cadets will rest this weekend as they prepare to take on Burke County (4-1) next Friday at Memorial Stadium. Let me make something clear, because I want to give everyone fair notice: attendance is required at this game. Not only is it homecoming (which, by the way, comes from the Old Medieval English term meaning "HOME" "COMING"), but there's a lot on the line. The Cadets need a win here to keep their playoff dreams alive. To say Burke is merely a formidable opponent is an enormous understatement. The only team they've lost to is Thomson (30-14), a perennial AAA powerhouse. This Friday they play South Effingham, and the outcome is obviously of great interest to us.

I know there are tons of more important things going on for lots of people that weekend, doing things with "friends" that I'm sure they'll still have 30 years from now. Fraternities. Girlfriends. Many, for example, are going to Knoxville. Cool. That's really hard to do. I'm sure you'll really separate yourselves from the other 100,000 rednecks there. I'm watching that game too, on this new thing they got now called a television.

Anyway, you can find me at 6:30 on Oct. 7 in the Paulson parking lot blasting oldies music, downing PBR, and making huge, unsubstantiated claims about how this is the biggest game of all time (like last weekend). But let's face it, it really is.

Colonel Fleming, we'll need a "word of the week" to repeat starting Monday.

Great Quotes

To sum these two quotes up; a welfare state is bad... very bad.

"The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale." ---Thomas Jefferson

"I find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and the duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit... The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated. Federal aid in such cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of the Government and weakens the sturdiness of our national character, while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood." ---PresidentGrover Cleveland

Very Superstitious

There is a little-known tradition among Georgia fans of lighting a cigar in the 4th quarter if the Dawgs have a lead. Substitute BC for Georgia and a Carey Hilliard's butter mint for the cigar and you have the makings of a miraculous win at the Corral.

Also, the Cadets are 0-2 when I drink before the game and 2-0 when I don't. This sucks but sometimes you gotta take one for the team.



GUYTON, GA - Huge win last night. We needed this one.

The Cadets knocked off South Effingham, the #5 team in AAA, on the road, thanks to the defense. Over a thousand Cadet fans old and young nearly packed the visitor stands of the "Corral" to cheer on the most motivated squad we've seen in quite a while. The malaise of the past 3 years is long gone; the Cadets are winning games again. 2 years ago I said that moving down to AAA was a bad idea, because we couldn't hang with the AAA cracker schools and our players would lose heart. I was dead wrong on both counts. Not only can we hang, we can beat the best, on the road.

I don't want to over-embellish things (and I probably will), but this might be the most excited I've seen BC's players/students/alumni/fans about the team since our freshman year. Maybe that's because last night was the first time we beat a top 5 team since that year (the 1997 victory over #4 Bradwell). Don't get me wrong, BC still has a long way to go, but while last night was only the first of five subregion contests, this team should make the playoffs.

I invite Leonard and Fleming, standing next to me last night shouting the fight song alongside hundreds of other alumni as the clock ran out, to post on this as well.

Will's Lock of the Week

I got lucky last week. Without Reggie Ball, the Jackets used a dominant rushing attack to steamroll UConn. Resdhirt freshman QB, Taylor Bennett did not play great, but was able to manage the game and not make any mistakes.

Record: 2-1

Lock of the Week:

Georgia Tech
Virginia Tech -11

A lot of pigskin prognoticators are putting the Hokies in the Rose Bowl, but I'm not drinking that Kool-aid. The Jackets are notorious for covering as road underdogs. A great defense and strong running game are recipes for success when playing away from home. Virginia Tech will not be able to run the ball against the Jacket's front seven. Lil' Vick's weakness will be exposed as he will be forced to make plays through the air.

With that said, I still don't know if Georgia Tech can pull off the upset. Ball's status is still questionable and, even if he does play, he will not be 100%. Damarius Bilbo's emergence as a good second receiver will do wonders for Tech's offense now that defenses cannot fully concentrate on shutting down Calvin.

When a game is this hard to call, you have to look at intngibles. Georgia Tech leads the nation in turnover margin and has a reliable kicker in Travis Bell. Finally, Gameday is coming to Blacksburg. The home team is 0-3 this year when Gameday comes to town.

Give me the Jackets by 4.

Remember The Time

Due to the last two nostalgic posts, I have been inspired to start one of my own. "Remember The Time" will be a multiple installment featured here on "Beach Music and Boat Shoes". Feel free to comment on your own memories or make your own posts. Alright enough with the queer stuff. Let's start remembering some times.
Do you remember "Paint the Halls Day" during homecoming week at BC. What a ridiculous mistake by the BC staff to allow us to pretty much put whatever the hell we wanted to all over those windows. Here are some of my all time favorites:
-"Brother Tim is gay"
If you recall this was written across the hall from the "library".
-"Die Danny Die"
This one killed two birds with one stone. Not only an Ace Ventura reference but also a shout out to our beloved quarterback.
-"Bobby Hjorstberg is White Lightening"
I hated that kid and he deserved every bit of ridicule he got.
-"Ryan Poston and Toby Poston are cousins"
I think this one embarrassed the hell out of Ryan for obvious reasons.
Written outside of Senorita's class, this was a reference to a vintage shirt Pierce had but Mrs.
Patterson got all self conscious b/c she thought it was about her and made us erase this one. Maybe if she would just brush her teeth everything would be alright.
-The drawing of a Miley "Swamp Rat" on one of the windows in the well. That thing looked
exactly like Miley.
-The weed drawings and references our senior year. This were not funny at all but must be
brought up because it was a foreshadowing of what would become of 74% of our class.
-Sophomore year when we attempted to completely paint over the window in B2 so Coach Cannon wouldn't see us cheating on Vocabulary tests. I can't remember if we actually got away with one.

That's all I can remember right now but I know I will think of some more.

There is Always Something There to Remind Me

Camden County, currently the #1 football team in the highest division in the state, also holds the state's longest regular-season winning steak (50 games).

Pop quiz: who was the last team to beat these crackers in the regular season?

Thankfully, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reminds us:
The Wildcats have the longest current regular-season winning streak in the state --- 50 in a row, going into Friday's game against Glynn Academy. They have won every regular-season game from Oct. 6, 2000, until now, a streak that began against Glynn Academy. The last team to beat Camden County in the regular season? Benedictine, a 9-7 winner on Sept. 29, 2000.

***Friday night flashback***...(wavy lines going back and forth, Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days" starts playing in the background...)

The #1 song in the country was "Jumpin, Jumpin" by Destiny's Child, "Remember the Titans" ruled the Box Office, gas was a dollar, none of the girls we hung out with were fat yet (on the flip side, none of them put out either), Republicans actually believed in things like balanced budgets and limited government, and the Benedictine Cadets were kicking ass and taking names.

Yes, believe it or not, it was nearly 5 years ago on a nasty, rainy night when 9 of us ventured down I-95 for a two-hour drive to the edges of civilization to watch one of the greatest BC games of all time. Second-string kicker Brandon Mell stepped up and sealed the deal during the last seconds with a 36-yard field goal as payback for the Protestant Reformation.

Next pop question: name the 9 of us that were there that night (11 total if you include Leonard and Wood, who were busy kicking cracker ass on the field)

"Alma Matta BSS, guiding us to happiness..."

I wish I was still sitting in the back of Mrs. Sikes' Social Studies class, breaking some random girl's hair band. She deserved it.

Brantley, Collier, and Hodges Strike Again

Click on this link if you want to read something amazing:
(Don't worry, I put links to things you actually can read and don't have to sign up for, unlike Pat)

This frat guy is dead serious when he proposes that UGA approve and fund a nighttime weekend bus route to drive drunk Greeks back and forth between downtown and their houses on Milledge. This same guy probably sports a W sticker on the back of his truck and would gladly respond, "Hell no!" if you asked him if welfare is a good idea. I'm sure he doesn't see the irony in the fact that he expects Big Brother to take care of him and "accept this responsibility," as he puts it.

Help make this guy look stupid by posting feedback as I did. Even better, email a letter to the editor.

Halfway There

If not for the commercialization of St. Patrick's Day, the date of September 17 would be meaningless. However, this is the midpoint of the Irish calendar and, thus, a reason to get Connolly'd at your local pub.

The 2006 Parade falls on a Friday, meaning we will get about a half-million spectators. I've actually received confirmations from a few.

Julio and Rico will able to make it since Mike's uncle is shutting down the box plant for the day.

Bloomingdale Elementary also gets the day off. Little Skyler and all his buddies are coming.

Tyrone said he's 95% sure he can make it. He was named after County Tyrone.

And finally, our favorite group of high school girls will be there, a year older and a year more developed.

I Hate Lance Armstrong

Some great news today - this smug jackass:
Image hosted by
will not be coming out of retirement anymore.

"I'm happy with the way my career went and ended and I'm not coming back."

Good. Stay gone. I'll be so happy never to see him smirk at the cameras, counting his wins on his fingers like the humble soul he is. He didn't beat cancer - his doctors did. "Live Strong"... by riding a bicycle a lot and getting completely undeserved attention for it.

"Sitting here today, dealing with all this stuff again, knowing if I were to go back, there's no way I could get a fair shake -- on the roadside, in doping control, or the labs."

I don't buy this conspiracy theory BS for a second. In fact, it makes me want to believe the claims against him even more. Yeah, some evil bad guys are going to get away with tainting your results since you're the most unfairly popular "athlete" in sports. It's so appropriate that he married Sheryl Crow - another no-talent hack who got famous in her field for no reason at all. Maybe she should get cancer so she can have another hit again, because it's not going to happen otherwise.

Will's Lock of the Week

I learned a valuable life lesson last week. Always stick to your guns. After initially taking Notre Dame as my lock, I changed my mind at the last minute and went with TCU. Well, the Horned Frog got slapped around by SMU, dropping me back to .500.

Record: 1-1

This week's lock:

Georgia Tech -15

You're thinking that I'm going to tell you to take the Huskies, right? I know you are. I mean, Tech is possibly the worst team at covering when they are the favorite. That may have been the Tech of years past but these are the Jackets of right about now the funk soul brothers BOOYA! UConn's QB is making his first start on the road. Call me crazy, but I like the Jackets by 18.

Bad Boys, Bad Boys. Whatchya gonna do?

After another fruitful night at the library, I decided to pedal my candy apple red bike home, via Broad St. and Milledge Ave. I left school at 11:00 p.m., hardly any traffic about. As I briskly made it to Milledge, I started to coast down the suicide lane heading towards Baxter St. No cars in sight. What's this? I hear what seems like a Crown Victoria accelerating up behind me. As I am trying to make room for the car to pass, blue lights flicker about... signaling me to pull over. Like any car would do when being pulled over by the cops, I slowed down and turned off the road.
The officer told me to slowly get off my bike, keeping my hands where he can see them. After I put my bike on the sidewalk, I began to pull off my bookbag. The officer got real excited and said "Halt! What sort of parcels are in your bag?" I explained to him that I was on my way home from the library, so of course I was carrying only books. Not only was I wearing seer suckered shorts, but Athens is home to 10,000 other students who frequently ride bikes with bookbags. What else would I be carrying?
He requested my ID, then very systematically inspected my speed demon bike. At that point, I still believed that I had been pulled over for riding in the suicide lane. Nope, the officer explained to me that I did not have "sufficient equipment" on my bike. I said, "oh, so I need to have more reflectors on my bike?" The officer answered "No, you must have electric lights on both the front and back of your vehicle, sir."
Well, he only gave me a warning. The cop wasted our tax dollars on pulling over a college kid riding a bike home. Could I really unsuspectedly run over an old lady at 11:00 pm with my vicious mountain bike? What an asshole.
Think about it, there were at least 2,000 kids last night walking into bars with fake ids, and this f%#$@* decides to pull a bicycler over on Milledge... for a warning.

I Hate Phillies Fans

I despise Philadelphia Phillies fans. What a group of lowlife trashbags. They try to ride the "Hey, I'm a blue-collar worker who has long days on the job, so when I pay to see you play, you better not screw up or I'll boo your ass" excuse. Keep your frustrations to yourself and for putting more holes in your apartment's walls and stay away from the ballpark.

A baseball game should be a place where you can sit and enjoy a leisurely-paced sport, drink cold beer, and keep your kids away from "Date My Mom" and "Room Raiders." You should never have to worry about some flabby, red-faced alcoholic liberal cussing his lungs out in front of your kids at a baseball game. Why do decent people have to suffer through ugly middle-agers pissed off that they live in a vile city with complete jokes for sports teams?

At least we can be satisfied knowing that Northeasterners unknowingly participate in a telling metaphor: When "fans" of the Phillies, Red Sox, and Yankees boo their own teams, they are expressing their utter contempt for their own lack of culture and worth in their own lives.

The 13 Worst Movies I Have Ever Seen

These are the 13 worst movies that I have ever seen. I would write some little rant about each one, but they mostly speak for themselves. Feel free to comment or add some of your own; the only qualification is that you list movies that you have watched all the way through.

And no, just because Saving Private Ryan is a war movie that plays to your emotions about dead soldiers does not make it a good movie.

13. Urban Legend
12. Finding Nemo
11. Bringing Down The House
10. The Fast and the Furious 1 and 2
9. Blue Crush
8. Lemon Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
7. Hero
6. Wes Craven's New Nightmare
5. Saving Private Ryan
4. I Heart Huckabees
3. The Matrix Revolutions
2. Mystic River
1. Charlie's Angels 1 and 2

Trap Games

This weekend's slate presents some scary matchups for a few BMBS-supported teams.

Effingham Co. @ Benedictine
The Rebels are 0-2 with losses to pretty good teams in South Effingham and Screven County. BC is 3-1 and feeling pretty good about themselves right now. Effingham is licking their chops at the opportunity to beat up on the city boys from Savannah. The Cadets may also be looking ahead to next week's crucial sub-region showdown with South Effingham. Another interesting sub-plot is Coach Munch's decision to leave BC for Springfield. But wait, there's more! Munch's replacement, Buddy Sorrow, has coached at Effingham in the past. Finally, I've held a personal grudge against the Rebels ever since that redneck sucker-punched Mark at the '94 game in Springfield. A classic Catholics vs. Crackers battle.

Connecticut @ Georgia Tech
I know. Tech shouldn't be concerned with a game against UConn. But the Huskies are good and will make the Jackets sweat. Tech travels to Blacksburg next week for a game which might decide the Coastal Division of the ACC. And, as we all know, Chan Gailey isn't the best at motivating his teams for games like this (cite '04 UNC, '03 Duke).

Michigan St. @ Notre Dame
The Golden Domers are on cloud-9 after taming the Skunkbears in the Big House. MSU's Drew Stanton is the best QB the Irish have faced so far this season. I still think the secondary is playing above their abilities and will come back down sooner or later. And since this is the home opener, emotions will be sky high on the ND sideline. This could lead to mental lapses early on. I predicted a shoot-out last week and was dead wrong but I'll do it again. Just please do not wear the green jerseys!

Revised Lock of the Week

In light of Pitt's overtime loss to Ohio (not Ohio State) last night, I feel a lot less confident about the Irish. Therefore I have decided to change my Lock of the Week.

TCU -14.5

The Horned Frogs may still be celebrating their upset of Oklahoma but they should have no problem with SMU. The Mustangs lost at home to Baylor by 5 points last weekend. Enough said.
TCU by 24.

One more thing on Katrina.

Just kidding. But check out the array of boat shoes offered at Nordstrom. And they all cost around $50! I perfer the blue myself.

Let's Beat a Dead Horse

Here is another good article on the Katrina deal. It touches on a lot of the things we have been saying the last week, and it actually uses the phrase "welfare parasites".

Braves Bits - if you will

If you haven't seen any Braves games lately, there's a group of about 6 guys and girls who dress up in hot dog suits and hold up a sign declaring themselves "Francoeur's Franks." They go nuts every time he does something.

Though I didn't come up with these, I figured it was worth sharing. I found these suggestions on a message board:

Chipper's Strippers
Orr's Whores

Also, thanks to the message board, I now have realized that every single time the camera cuts to the bullpen, reliever John Foster walks out of the lounge door. I noticed it subconsciously before, but now I know he does it on purpose. He watches the game on the TV in there and as soon as they show the bullpen, he bursts through the door and plays with his belt. This is comic genius and gives you something to look for in those late innings.

Sorry, Still More on Katrina

Even Europeans are jumping in now and accusing Americans of not caring enough about their own poor/minorities, saying that is the reason why so many have died in New Orleans. Evil, greedy, capitalist American pigs (like me) care more about tax cuts instead of providing public goods like national health care, they reason, and it is this conservative/libertarian attitude that is truly responsible for the tragedy.

Nevermind the fact that a category 5 hurricane hit a below sea-level city of over a million where 2/3rds of the population already happens to be black.

I hate to keep linking the same blog, but these econ professors at George Mason Univ. are flat-out brilliant. All of you should read this blog everyday. Today, they point out how socialist France, with its supposedly perfect, generous universal health-care system, couldn't even keep 15,000 of its own citizens from dying during a short heat wave in the Summer of '03 (I was in the U.K. at the time).

Why Spurrier Hates Georgia

I hope all of you knew I was being sarcastic with yesterday's post.

Here's two stories, one in Charleston's paper, the other in Columbia's, explaining exactly what turned Spurrier to the dark side.

Many of you already know what it is, but I just felt like posting it anyway.

"Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to....suffering." And the Gamecocks WILL suffer on Saturday.

Will's Lock of the Week

I started the season off on the right foot last week, as Boston College coasted to an easy 20-3 victory over BYU.

Record: 1-0

This week's lock:

Notre Dame
Michigan -7

Charlie and the Touchdown Factory roll into Ann Arbor this weekend for a classic battle between these two hated rivals. Last year, Darius Walker ran wild over the Wolverines as Notre Dame stunned the nation by upsetting Michigan 28-20 in Southbend. This year's matchup looks to be a shootout with the winner most likely being the last team to have the ball.

Take the Irish. Seven points is far too many to give up to a team that can score like ND. Hell, go ahead and take the Irish to win. Notre Dame will shutdown the run and force Michigan to become one-dimmesional. Only problem is, the Irish secondary is still suspect, despite their performance against Pitt. Behind a superior OL, Notre Dame will be able to run the ball effectively. The "thunder and lightning" combo of Walker and Rashon Powers-Neal won't dominate, but will force Michigan's defense to respect the run, allowing Brady Quinn to put up big numbers.

The Irish steal one in Ann Arbor by 6 points and Brady Quinn is catapulted into the thick of the Heisman race.

Steve Spurrier: Nice Guy

He's real laid back'd like him a lot. Read this AJC interview, for example. Carolina is currently a 16.5-point underdog for Saturday. Don't get me wrong, my blood runs red and black, but I'm not taking this bet.

New Orleans and Katrina: Part Deux

Here's another article on the chaos of New Orleans. This time the main culprate of the troubles is our country's out of control welfare system.
"What Hurricane Katrina exposed was the psychological consequences of the welfare state. What we consider "normal" behavior in an emergency is behavior that is normal for people who have values and take the responsibility to pursue and protect them. People with values respond to a disaster by fighting against it and doing whatever it takes to overcome the difficulties they face. They don't sit around and complain that the government hasn't taken care of them. And they don't use the chaos of a disaster as an opportunity to prey on their fellow men."


Read about it here.

New Orleans and Katrina

I won't go into detail about the hurricane and its destruction. We have all watched the devastation unravel on Fox News since late Sunday night. The flooding and damage can all be repaired with time, but something worse is happened there. Today, I heard reports of armed gangs of looters and thugs running the neighborhoods of New Orleans. Reports of police men either going AWOL or taking part in looting itself, beatings of refugees, shoots being fired at rescue attempts, and even raping of children has been reported. This reminds of Lord of the Flies. What would posses these punks to behave the way they are? I happened to stumble upon this article that tries to answer such a question. After reading it, the New Orleans catastrophe was started years before Katrina ever thought of making landfall.

Target Destination; Jordan- Hare Stadium

The Boat Shoes will arrive in Auburn on Saturday, September 3rd at 5:00 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will commence the dangerous switch from beer to bourbon at 5:05 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will feast on barbecue and fried chicken at 5:10 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will say something extremely embarrassing at 6:30 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will enter Jordan-Hare stadium at 7:30 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will pull out the secret weapon, a tasty flask, at 8:30 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will be starving 10:45 p.m. central time.
The Boat Shoes will go into a coma at 11:00 p.m. central time.

Will's Lock of the Week

College football is finally here and I'm more excited than Dennis Rodman at a Clinique sale! BOOYAH! This is the first in a weekly installment that will span the entire season. Feel free to respond with your thoughts or your own lock of the week.

Boston College -2.5

I honestly have no idea why this line is so low. The only possible explanation is that Vegas is banking on BC laying an egg in Provo like their Catholic cousins did last year. With a new coach and a return to the Ty Detmer uniforms, the Mormons will be sky high for this game. But in my book, you gotta get to White Castle before the weirdos show up! The Eagles physical, smashmouth style will allow them to grind out an easy win. BC by 13.
