Wed Live @ Game Connection
Give Stanley The Vote & More!!!!
Posted: Wednesday, August 16th, 2006, 10:47 AM • Permalink
I feel like a kid in a candy store these days. High school football kicks off for us Friday night with Lenior City @ Campbell County. Not exactly the sexiest matchup in the world but therein lies the beauty of high school sports. A games perceived importance isnít a prerequisite for kids hustling and giving it all. Besides, Iíll be kicking it with Beano and Overstreet. Have you ever heard of a better way to spend a Friday Night?

Weíre live at Game Connection today in Halls. That is an AWESOME place. If youíre into video games, you have to check this place out. The groundswell around the release of Madden í07 is bizarre. Do you realize that there is a pay per view of secrets and tricks to master the game correlating with the release date. You can play it this weekend, all weekend at Game Connection. For more, go to

I thought Small Mind was kidding a couple of weeks ago when he was joking about Stanley Asumnu not having a scholarship. Asumnu is quoted after yesterdays practice as saying "If I have a scholarship, yeah, I'm going to be here," Asumnu said. "If not, I don't know what's going to happen." Whatís up with that? What is Coach Fulmer waiting for? Give Stanley the vote!!! Never one prone to hyperbole, Trooper Taylor tells the Tennessean that had Asumnu played football for the past 8 years instead of focusing on hoops, Stanley couldíve been like T.OÖ.OK

Your thought for the day From E-Wad
Ticket prices
The highest cost of a ticket at Georgia this season is $32. The Bulldogs are the
defending SEC champion. The Tennessee Vols were 5-6, there tickets go for $50. The
highest cost of a ticket at the Atlanta Falcons this season is $104. The Falcons went
8-8. Where would you rather be?

Love UTís new hoops schedule. I thought ticket prices wouldíve increased to a greater degree. 10 nationally televised games (most in school history)! I would say UT hoops is about to get over itís 25 year Buzz once and for all.

Speaking of Buzz. Glad to see Chuck Benson back in our area. Heís taken an assistant job at Carson-Newman. With their recent football hires and now Benson, I count 4 high major D-1 coaches on their football/hoops staffs. Not to shabby.

Why is it that municipalities always have to destroy landmarks? NYCNY is talking about ripping down Yankee Stadium when they erect the new one in a couple of years.

To what degree is Lou Holtz a phony weasel?
Holtz's new 318-page autobiography Wins, Losses and Lessons devotes only 16 pages to his six years at South Carolina. They loved you there, too, Lou.

Gotta go. Small Mike is in the process of making his fourth call of the morning.
