Friday, October 22, 2021 – Snarky Friday MASH and The Halloween Game
I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the monster mash
It was a graveyard mash,
It caught on in a flash
He did the monster mash.
It is not quite Halloween, but it is close enough for government work. Plan for some monster mash games this weekend.
One mash already went down on Wednesday with Number 14 Coast Carolina losing to Appalachian State 27 to 30. I keep telling the Chanticleers that teal is just not a good football color.
Lots of games at 11:00 am.
ESPN 2 – a Mash UP between Cincinnati and Navy. Poor Navy. Prepare to abandon ship.
ESPN – Oklahoma and Kansas – The wind will be whipping down the plans for this MASH Up.
CBSSN – Wake Forest and Army – More like M*A*S*H.
No team in the Big 12 is worth watching this week. With the exception of Oklahoma State and Iowa State at 2:30 on Fox these games will all be mashed and one opponent will blow out the other one.
Never worth watching at 6:30 on NBC – aka the Notre Dame Network – we have USC and Notre Dame. I always like it when the Trojans play the Catholics. There is just something funny about it. Go Greek.
The game to watch in the afternoon is LSU and Ole Miss at 2:30 on CBS. Mute Motor Mouth Gary Danielson and watch the Tigers and the Rebels. Kiffen is bringing his popcorn and a good record. But all records are thrown out the window when this game is played. Hotty Toddy!
Even though it is no longer played on October 30, it is still be The Halloween Game. This clip is played on the radio and local TV through out Louisiana all day until kick off. Here’s to the late Billy Cannon and the late Donnie Daye (who threw the block to spring Billy down the sidelines and my first cousin). May your ghosts haunt Kiffen and the Rebels all night long. GEAUX Tigers!
The University of Texas at San Antonio plays Louisiana Tech. There is no TV coverage, but it is always nice to snark on THE University of Texas at Austin. BTW, the Roadrunners are last at number 25 in the top 25. THE Other Mother University is not ranked.
Texas A&M and South Carolina 6:30 SECN. Hopefully, this will be another MASH up as the Aggies look forward to an off week.
Start the evening with Tennessee at Alabama at 6:00 on ESPN. Tennessee fans are requested to prepare for a body search upon entering the stadium. No golf balls will be allowed in the stadium. Stadium personnel will hand out mustard in small packets. The Alabama women’s field hockey team will be armed with nets along the sidelines to catch any stray water bottles. The Alabama men’s lacrosse team will be standing with nets to catch beer cans that may be thrown.
I hope your team wins!
BTHO South Carolina
I was 13 years old and in the car with my folks coming home to Mississippi from New Orleans listening to the game on the radio. We damn near had to stop the car.
