Friday, November 2, 2018 – Dia De Los Muertos and Snarky Veirnes
It is the Day of the Dead and Snarky Friday. Notice that Snark is an universal term.
Saturday promises to be a bloody Mary morning starting at 11:00 am. Let’s start with Baylor and Oklahoma State. It is homecoming in Bear land. I am afraid it may not be a crowning achievement for this family divided contest. I hope the Nose Brothers are out and about.
No TV for those two, but THE GAME at 11:00 on ESPN is Auburn versus Texas A&M. This could be a day of the dead for the loser.
If you do care for watching something else at 11:00 you have Nebraska and Ohio State on Fox in what should be no contest between players in red uniforms. The team with the little pot leaves on their helmets will win.
More reddish uniforms are on ABC with a non-thriller between Louisville and Clemson.
There is also Puffy Sparty, Michigan State and “What the heck is going on at?” Maryland. The MD regents fired the coach; then rehired the coach; then fired him again and the chair of the board of regents resigned.
The two-thirty time slots begin with Georgia and Kentucky on CBS. Aside from Gary Danielson’s verbose and self-centered analysis, this could be good. UGA will bark and Kentucky will see more red uniforms running down the field.
The eyes of Texas are upon you at 2:30 on FOX. Watch out Horns, those hillbilly, couch burning Mountaineers are going to wreck-havoc and it will be Almost Heaven, West Virginia! This definitely promises to be a game of ugly uniforms. This Big 12 Title is on the line.
For my gym rat Penn Staters – Could be a day of the dead for the Nittany Lions against Michigan. At least the uniforms are not red.
Finally when the deep purple falls… The last hope for keeping Notre Dame out of the top four is Northwestern at 6:15 on ESPN.
At 7:00 in another clash of red and white uniforms, Oklahoma and Texas Tech kick off on ABC. OU will be performing for the Selection Committee as the Sooners coming sweeping down the plains of Lubbock. With passing quarterbacks this game promises to be a long one so don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour to make it seem even longer.
At 7:00 we have the THE GAME. This is a big one! This promises to be an Uncle Ralph Two Boot Flask game. From Death Valley in Baton Rouge, Louisiana it is the #3 Tigers of LSU and #1 Crimson Tide of Alabama.
If your last name begins with “H” and you are sporting hounds tooth hats, wearing a National Championship shirt with a giant or wearing this obnoxious head gear (there are more than one of you) our friendship is temporarily suspended from 7:00 to 10:00 pm EST. GEAUX TIGERS!
Between LSU and Texas A&M, we can make it a bad Saturday in Alabama.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour.
