A Sad Day for Liberty

Hey y'all.

Hank here, class of '01. Even though I wasn't allowed to "graduate" due to the disciplinary point system, my heart still lies with my fellow Cadets. You might remember me as a BC trainer, and my classmates loved to affectionately yell my name at inappropriate times during the day. Some say I didn't have many friends. Not true. I had nearly 100 of the best friends a man could ever want. Hell, my classmates officially declared the day I was kicked out as HANK Day. Some Sophomore even claimed to carry my child.

After leaving BC, I delved into the automobile industry working as a mechanic. Now, my interests include religion, politics, history, tradition, economics, BC football, and long distance running. I believe in the one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, the free market system, less government, lower taxes, right to life and a strong military defense.

Anyways, on September 27, 2007 the Senate passed "hate crime" legislation that was attached to the Defense Authorization Bill. A sneak attack wrought by Liberals. For Senate "conservatives" to pass the defense spending bill with the help of the Left, the hate crime amendment was the price to pay. A hefty price for Liberty I say.

The hate crimes amendment would make it illegal for Christians to label homosexuality as wrong or even sinful. Whether or not you have a stance on the sexual orientation debate, this bill would be a major setback for Religious Freedom. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass and Son of Satan, argue their amendment helps "fight terrorism at home."

Honestly, would you label St. Michael's Church on Tybee Island as a terrorist organization for claiming that homosexuality is wrong?

Good news Lovers of Liberty; The President, using his last bit of back bone, is expected to veto the defense spending bill just because of the hate crime amendment. And, with only 60 Senate votes, it is unlikely that the veto will be overturned. Thank God. On a sad note, the Federal "hate crime" push is not over. In the future, Liberals will keep throwing this monkey wrench into our legislative system until one day Congress will be forced to enact it. Terrible.

Patrick, is the above case a good argument to introduce the "line item veto"?- (For those of you wondering, multiple unrelated laws can be introduced and passed under one bill. A line item veto thus allows the President to veto only certain parts of a bill, while allowing the remaining laws to pass. In the old days when the U.S.A was a confederacy, a Congressional Bill could contain only one law, causing laws to be debated and passed one by one. When the government was federalized and multiple bills were needed to save the country from collapse, Congress then allowed a bill to contain many laws. Even though less efficient, I believe the original way was better for the country. But, desperate times call for desperate measures.)

Snuffy's Lock of the Week: Week 5

Hey ya'll, Snuffy P. Smith here with your Lock of the Week for week 5 of the college football season. First, some administrative business. I've decided to forego the weekly Mad Money post. Ryan made a good point when he asked where these teams could be bought and sold. Instead, I will add the Upset Alert to the Lock of the Week post. Now, the Lock of the Week.

Michigan State at Wisconsin (-7.5)

This will be a classic Big 10 slugfest with the victory going to the team that wants to lose the least. I don't know if the Spartans can pull off the win at Camp Randall Stadium, but they will keep it within a touchdown.

Season Record: 3-1

Upset Alert:
Penn State at Illinois

And I don't care what any of ya'll say about the Baconator. It is the best fast food burger around. Hands down.

East Downtown

The City Council shored up $57 million in funds to expand the downtown district out to the Truman Parkway. On tap: 6 new squares and a renovated President St.

But what about the Hitch?

Best Fast Food Burger Ever

Wendy's, a fast food restaurant constantly searching for an identity, has struck gold with its newest menu item. The Baconator is the greatest fast food hamburger ever produced.

Seen above in its actual form, the Baconator does not pretend to be anything it's not. What you see is what you get: 830 calories and 51 grams of fat. No fancy condiments like lettuce, tomatoes or onions. Just bacon, cheese, ketchup and mayonaise, the way a burger was meant to be. And there are no oversized buns to make it appear bigger than it actually is. This thing is all meat, baby. If John Holmes were alive today, this would be his burger.

Adding to the magnificence of this meat marvel is the witty ad campaign that uses personification to give the Baconator a beast-like quality. Taglines such as Careful, it can sense fear and Order it before it orders you conjure up images of a werewolf with a chainsaw for a dick (I stole that from EDSBS, but you get the point). So, if you have yet to experience the Baconator, do yourself a favor and drop what you're doing right now and go get one. It will change your life.

Let's Not Forget

In the midst of the glorious play which follows this, I completely forgot about these comments. It's either the most inappropriately timed and asinine commentary I've ever heard, or the work of an undercover brilliant comedian.

Stan Mikita's Doughnuts

The owner of the Chicago Blackhawks died today, and the very first thing I thought of after reading this was to check the Blackhawks message board. I wanted to see how honest the fans would be in their reactions, because the owner, William Wirtz, was pretty much hated intensely by the Blackhawk fans for various reasons. He was notoriously stingy when it came to free agents and refused to show the home games on TV, for example.

The first place I went was the offical board, but I was very disappointed with the amount of "my prayers are with his family" and "sorry to hear about his family's loss." I then went to the ESPN board and was given some keen insight into a hockey fan's mind. I really love this:

"Screw Wirtz I hope he burns in hell. The way he wrecked this franchise not to mention the NHL in general. Now maybe the Hawks can come back to the top as a franchise in the Chicago area. People in this city used to love hockey and loved the Hawks but with Wirtz around they finally gave up. Now maybe the fans can come back and this ONCE PROUD orginization can regain its foothold in the hearts of Chicago's fans. Ding dong the witch is dead!"

Re: " wow, i was coming here to post my feelings on this but this post is exactly word for word what i was going to say. I couldn't agree more. Good riddance and I hope he suffers for eternity in he!! for what he did to the Hawks."


These kids are everywhere on SavannahNow. I just thought'd I'd bring them over here so I could see them whenever I want.

You Got Listserved 9/21/07

Does anyone know anything about the wreck that happened on the bypass
yesterday sometime around 5:20 or so? It was just a little before the
Timothy Rd. exit. It was very disturbing to see and I know someone's
family will need prayers. Thanks, BP.

I have to comment on this. It's such garbage when people try to pass off their complete nosiness as if they're actually concerned, and even worse when they hide it behind religion. The family doesn't need your prayers or your special VIP connection you have with Jesus. You only wanted to satisfy your own selfish curiosity.

Snuffy's Lock of the Week: Week 4

Hey ya'll. Snuffy P. Smith here with your Lock of the Week for week 4 of the college football season.

Penn State (-3) @ Michigan

Michigan has finally awoken from its slumber after demolishing Notre Dame. This is Penn State's first game away from home and the first competent opponent the Nittany Lions have played this year. Anthony Morelli throws a couple pics and Michigan wins by a TD.

Season Record: 2-1

Mad Money With Snuffy P. Smith: Week 4


Florida 3-0
Last Week: W 59-20 vs. Tennessee
I have been skeptical of Tim Tebow up until this point. He is for real and the Urban Meyer has the Gators primed for another run at the national championship. Florida will travel to Baton Rouge on Oct. 6th in what will easily be the game of the year. These teams will play each other again in Atlanta, so a loss in October will not hurt very much.

Michigan 1-2
Last Week: W 38-0 vs. Notre Dame
The Wolverines finally played up to their potential. I know Notre Dame sucks this year, but all Michigan needed was a shot in the arm. They will not lose again until they play Ohio State. Lloyd Carr's future will rest on the outcome of that game.


Boston College 3-0
Last Week: W 24-10 at Georgia Tech
Matt Ryan is one of the best QBs in the nation, thanks in large part to an outstanding OL. The defense did shut down Tech, but I think the Jackets shut down themselves on offense. Tashard Choice, one of the best RBs in the nation, only carried the ball 11 times. BC will be 7-0 when they travel to Virginia Tech and will have to travel to Maryland and Clemson after that, not to mention a home date with Miami to end the regular season.

Kentucky 3-0
Last Week: W 40-34 vs. Louisville
The Wildcats have yet to face a comptent defense this season. With Arkansas, South Carolina, LSU, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee left on the schedule, Kentucky will be fortunate to win 6 games this year.


UCLA 2-1
Last Week: L 6-44 at Utah
The Bruins returned all 11 starters from a defense that shut down Southern Cal last year. Giving up 44 to Utah tells me their performance against the Trojans was a fluke. UCLA will probably upset a team or two and lose to a couple teams they shouldn't, en route to a low-level bowl game.

Wisconsin 3-0
Last Week: W 45-31 vs. The Citadel
The Badgers, like UCLA were supposed to be dark-horse national title contenders. However, Wisconsin has had two straight sub-par performances against UNLV and The Citadel and will likely finish 4th in the Big 10/11 behind Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State.

Halfway There

Snuffy's Lock of the Week: Week 3

Hey ya'll. Snuffy P. Smith here with your Lock of the Week for Week 3 of the college football season.

Hawaii (-17.5) @ UNLV

Last week, Hawaii struggled to outscore LA Tech, one of the worst offensive teams in the nation in 2006. Meanwhile, UNLV gave Wisconsin a run for its money. Also, away games are like cryptonite to the Warriors. Hawaii's lack of defense, coupled with their second consecutive trip to the mainland, means the Runnin' Rebels will keep this one close. I don't think UNLV will win, but they will stay within striking distance and beat the spread.

Season Record: 2-0

Mad Money with Snuffy P. Smith


LSU 2-0
Last Week: W 48-7 vs. Virginia Tech
I think the Hokies were a little overrated to begin with, but seriously, 48-7!?! The defense is downright nightmarish and Matt Flynn managing the offense to perfection. Florida, Auburn and Arkansas all come to Baton Rouge. The toughest road game is Nov. 3rd at Alabama. LSU should have no problem running the table during the regular season.

Oklahoma 2-0
Last Week: W 51-13 vs. Miami
Nobody expected the Sooners to come out of the gates this fast. After losing Adrian Peterson to the NFL and Rhett Bomar to dumb-ass decisions, it was supposed to take Oklahoma a few weeks to find an offensive identity. Sam Bradford apparently did not get the memo, completing 40-48 passes for 568 yards and 2 TDs the last two weeks. Texas looks to be the lone contender left on the schedule and the Longhorns have struggled early on.


Georgia Tech 2-0
Last Week: W 69-14 vs. Samford
The Jackets have looked fantastic against lesser competition in the opeing weeks of the season. The first real test comes Saturday against Boston College. The defense is for real and Tashard Choice is a legitimate Heisman contender, but how will Taylor Bennett hold up as the season wears on. He looked good last year against West Virginia, but Calvin Johnson saved his ass by snatching two lame duck throws out of the air for TDs. Against Notre Dame, Bennett did not appear comfotable and the offense sputtered in the red zone. Tech also faces a tough stretch coming up with BC at home, @ UVA, Clemson at home, @ Maryland and @ Miami.

South Florida 2-0
Last Week: W 26-23 @ Auburn
The win at Auburn is the biggest win in South Florida's short history. Even bigger than last year's upset of West Virginia. The defense is stacked and Matt Grothe is a good young talent at QB. However, the offense has lacked punch so far this season, only scoring 28 against D-1AA Elon and needing OT to score 26 against Auburn. The Bulls have been the "Georgia Tech of the Big East" the past few years, upsetting a big name and losing to inferior teams. The Big East appears to be strong this year and I think South Florida's offensive deficiency will catch up with them.


Notre Dame 0-2
Last Week: L 10-31 @ Penn State
The Irish have not put up much of a fight so far this season. Georgia Tech and Penn State are darkhorse national title contenders but the complete lack of offense is scary. The defense is solid but not strong enough to win a game by itself. The OL is absolutely awful. In two games, Notre Dame has totaled (-4) yards rushing, including sacks. There is no excuse for that. Notre Dame could easily be 0-8 when Navy visits South Bend in November, and even that won't be a gimmee. This weekend's game against Michigan will be very interesting.

Virginia Tech 1-1
Last Week: L 7-48 @ LSU
Teams that suffer through a tragedy usually come out on fire the following season. I figured Virginia Tech would do the same. Struggling with East Carolina and getting pummeled by LSU have me feeling VT will be fighting just to reach .500 this year.

Week 3 Upset Alert

Louisville @ Kentucky
The Cardinals' weakness, defense, plays right into the hands of the Wildcats' strength, offense.

Ohio State @ Washington
Blowing out Syracuse is no big deal, but dispensing of Boise St. by two TDs is. Dual QB threat Jake Locker has looked phenominal in his first two starts.

Friday, September 07, 2007

Week Two: BC vs. Jenkins

Jenkins may have its best team since a quarter-century ago when they were coached by a certain 1970 BC graduate. BC is much-improved and will be ready to play, but it simply won't matter unless the guy in the above picture somehow manages to catch an extreme form of that Jenkins venereal disease Colonel Owens used to warn us about between now and 7:30. The Warriors demolished Bluffton last week and should have no trouble finishing 2nd in the region behind Camden.


Jenkins - 42
BC - 27

While this matchup has no effect on AAA standings, an upset would get people talking like they haven't in quite a while.

Snuffy's Lock of the Week

Hey ya'll. Snuffy P. Smith here with your Lock of the Week for Week 2 of the college football season.

Alabama (-4) @ Vanderbilt

I know Vandy has a lot back from last year and they clobbered Richmond in their opener, but seriously, this is Vandy. The Commodores will likely pull a small upset at some point this season, but it won't be against Nick Saban and Alabama. The Tide rolls by at least 10 points.

Season Record: 1-0

Definition of Cracker

I found the following post over at EDSBS, which is the best college football blog ever created. I cannot stress this enough. If you don't know, the picture is of South Carolina QB Blake Mitchell.

It is mandatory that as an SEC fan, there will be one redneck ne’er-do-well at qb in your conference each year. He shall think the shotgun is named after a beer drinking technique; he shall list his interests on Facebook as “getting hammered,” and “tracking poonasaurus heh heh heh.” He shall step heartily into throws doomed from the first twitch of the eyeball toward the receiver. He shall vomit in public with great frequency and productivity, shocking even circus freaks with their ability to shoot liquid in gouts from his gullet. He shall, from time to time, drive into stationary objects with his or someone else’s car.

In a greater time, men like this were nicknamed “Snake,” “Red,” “Brett Favre,” or “Redsnake.” Now we just call him cracker-ass crackah Blake Mitchell, a walking Saltine of a man, so crackered out is he, who will be the starter at Georgia on Saturday when South Carolina comes to Athens.

How many times did we ride this?

Chris, Ryan, and Joe:


Hello, McFly, your ride's over
Sep 04, 2007 04:30 AM

The Back to the Future ride is heading into the past.
The Universal Studios Hollywood ride based on the movies with Canadian actor Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd was taking its final passengers yesterday
It's closing to make room for a new Simpsons attraction.
Back to the Future – The Ride was the theme park's first high-tech thrill ride. It opened in 1993.
For their trip, passengers were strapped into a carriage modelled after the film's DeLorean time machine to ride in front of a film projected on a domed screen, which gave the illusion of flight.
The new Simpsons ride is scheduled to debut next year.

This labor day weekend is Dragon*Con in Atlanta. Dragon*Con is America's largest, multi-media, popular arts convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. I am not downtown anymore, but my wife has given me updates on the totally sweet gamers. The point is: I am tired of people saying that "we'll be working for these people one day." We were always told that the nerds will be running the world, but I am of the opinion only a couple of nerds (Steve Jobs and Bill Gates) are really doing that well. The rest are in Atlanta dressed up like Harry Potter or Star Wars or Lord of the Rings.
