Friday, July 19, 2019 – Unofficial Snarky Friday

Friday, July 19, 2019 – Unofficial Snarky Friday

Sometime over this weekend someone will post the number of Saturdays, the actual number of days, and the hours and minutes until college football kickoff. It might be me, but it could any one of you anxiously waiting for our favorite teams to fill the weekend TV screens.

Media Days began on Monday, July 15, and marked the unofficial start of college football season. Therefore, we have the start of Unofficial Snarky Friday. Snarky Friday is where I post my snarky comments regarding college football.

Media Days is the week when representatives from the NCAA Division I football conferences congregated in front of the media. Coaches and young men appear all dressed up, speak and answer questions from various sports media outlets.

This is the time where you hear words and phrases such as:

  • One game at a time
  • Big shoes to fill at that position
  • Big number of starters returning
  • Outstanding freshman
  • Seasoned quarterback
  • Alabama keeps whining (hey I am just paraphrasing ESPN)
  • New head coach and
  • A most difficult schedule.

As you know this blog is about teams I like and teams that play teams I like. Let’s first take a look at the Big 12 – Really Only 10 – Conference. It consists of THE University of Texas and Oklahoma University, seven other schools and Kansas that prays for basketball season to arrive. The Red River Rivalry is going to be fun, fun, fun. Wouldn’t it be ironic if Jalen Hurts won the Heisman?

Now to the – It Just Means More Conference – the SEC. I conducted a comparative analysis of the Texas Aggie Football Schedule and the SEC media days. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Media Day Schools – July 15

Florida – Do Not Care

Missouri – Really Do Not Care

LSU – Happy Thanksgiving! November 30. I shall wear my 7 OT Shirt from last year’s victory.

Media Day Schools – July 16

Mississippi – October 19 – Off to Oxford.

Tennessee – Nope!

Texas A&M – Significantly biased

Georgia – Oh crap! November 23 in Athens and seven days before LSU!

Media Day Schools – Wednesday, July 17

Arkansas – OMG! Winter is coming! September 28 in Arlington with a possibility of Nick Starkle at QB!

I am not sitting next to the damn pig this year.

Alabama – OMG! Winter is coming! October 10. Twelfth Man in the Stands! And in the streets and the whole Brazos Valley.

Mississippi State – OMG! Winter is coming! And so are the cowbells. October 26.

South Carolina – OMG! Winter is coming! But the only chicken we like is the Dixie Chicken.

Media Day Schools – Thursday, July 18

Auburn – September 21 – September 21 – the first of the three A’s. (Auburn, Arkansas and Alabama)

Kentucky – Do Not Care

Vanderbilt – Do Not Care

I am not aware if football schedules are given names that parallel similar physical events. But if so, I would like to name the Texas Aggie football schedule the following:

The 2019 Texas Aggie Football Root Canal, Gynecological/Prostate Exam and Hot Water Enema Schedule

Did I mention the Aggies play Clemson on September 7?

 

Monday, February 4, 2019 – The Unsuper Bowl and The Dude

Monday, February 4, 2019 – The Unsuper Bowl and The Dude

Who else wasted a Sunday evening waiting for something super to happen during the football game?

The game was on the TV, but I must say I did not watch much of it. I was doing something else – maybe flossing my teeth, or texting pics of my cat to my friends. I don’t remember.

At half time I went to the kitchen to prepare some food, but left the audio on. My plans were to return to the TV when the loud, banging noises and screaming ceased. Turns out that was the half-time performance. So I missed it. I did not get to see Adam Levine take off his shirt. I saw on social media it caused an uproar with remembrances and recalls of Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson and nipplegate. One site referred to the episode as “ when he yanked off his tank top like a Chippendales dancer at a Mormon bachelorette party.” I have no idea what that means.

Here is what I’m thinking. Adam Levine is a dude. From what I saw later it wasn’t all that and a bag of chips to look at.

Speaking of dudes, the best commercial: Stella Artois.

You either got it or you didn’t. It was super.  It reminded me of when Ms. Navasota and I go to the First Assembly of Abuelos on Sunday. If we did not get a bottle of Etancia plates might break.

And we actually saw more of Sarah Jessica Parker’s chest than Adam Levine’s.

That team with one of the Brady Bunch kids won the football game again this year. Maybe next year they could play the University of Alabama to create a little change. Sometimes its good to change up the usual –  so says Carrie and The Dude.

Let’s all go have us a “Stella Artose.”
