Monday, August 26 – My Monday After Saturday/Sunday Athletic Contests Awards!
First to Sunday – to the Louisiana Southwest Little League team for winning the Little League World Series. Congratulations to them! Congratulations to the state of Louisiana! Great young players on both teams.
And now back Saturday and college football – Florida vs. Miami Saturday Night
My number one award is the “I Really Don’t Care Award” awarded to both Florida and Miami. See, even though I was not raised in Louisiana, I was taught early on to never pull for team from Florida. And now that Florida is in the SEC, I never pull for Florida even more so. Besides, I cannot be bothered with them this season. That means the Aggies do not play the Gators this season.
Our first Poopy Underwear Award of the year (for scaring their fan base due to a close game) goes to the Florida Gators.
The Recorded the Wrong Channel Award goes to me. I accidently recorded the ESPN with the five screens. If you have not seen this, the five screens stay on your TV for the entire game.
I do not need this much data flowing through my brain. I just want to watch the damn football game. I do not want to watch a camera on both coaches; interviews with former players of both teams, a box with statistics in it and the ESPN logo; the actual game and in the largest box of all – four white dudes in casual slacks and no ties discussing the game as it is being played. Did I mention I don’t care?
Here’s what I’m thinking. I would like to give five screens at my house a try. Not watching other games with five data flowing screens on my TV screen but simulating the four dudes. I would have dudes and dudessess come to watch and comment on an Aggie football game as it is being played in real-time.
Who would I have? I would invite Ms. Navasota, my friend Randy from Katy, RL, and me. Maybe we, I could have a 5th chair. You know – like on ESPN Game Day.? Let me know if you are interested in having a chair in my living room this fall.
I’ll need some technical help to record us and to put our five live boxes on air. We will be seated in my living room watching an Aggie football game. Bras are optional, but T-shirts are required; gentlemen must wear pants and a top; shoes are optional and sandals with socks are optional.
We will sit behind a table with adult beverages of choice (Screen 1) and keep statistics in the statistics box of the number of drinks we consume (Screen 2) and the number of times we curse at the TV (Screen 3). Screen 4, of course will be the game. That leaves room for a fifth screen. Maybe a slideshow of our pets and actually show the bands marching at halftime.
I believe this idea has great broadcast potential. Let me know if you are interested in becoming a guest commentator, drinker and cusser for Saturday college football games.
It is going to be a great year. Let’s get these tailgates started staring this Thursday.
BTHO TEXAS STATE!
