Today is normally my day for stress relief but I am truly on edge. My undergraduate alma mater, University of Tennessee, plays Vanderbilt today in Knoxville. Something has happened these past two years, which is more unimaginable than President Obama actually resigning. Vandy has beat Tennessee two years in a row. I am truly concerned that it could be a three-peat.
I am already looking at the possibility of Army losing for the twelfth straight year to Navy. So yep, I’m gonna be on edge today. However, I do have belief that my Masters alma mater, Kansas State, will stay on a winning streak and beat the Oklahoma Sooners in Manhattan, the Little Apple, EMAW!
The big game in college football today without a doubt is the Baylor Bears traveling to Stillwater Oklahoma to face the Cowboys of Oklahoma State — should be a doozy. I don’t think anyone remembers the last time Baylor won up there in Stillwater, but we will after this evening.
Pro football? Well, my lamentations return as my hometown Atlanta Falcons who were 14-2 last season lost to our rivals the New Orleans Saints and fell to 2-9. Oh, the horror. So I guess my thrill will be seeing the Brady-Manning XIV game Sunday night. Ol’ Tom Brady was sure mad about the end of that Carolina Panthers game last week. We’ll see if that anger propels the New England Patriots to a victory over the Denver Broncos who are on a serious hot hand.
Ok, that’s my summary for the weekend of football. Let me know, who has been your biggest disappointment this football season, college or professional?
