Excuse Me, Miss?

Game day.
Today the Pirates travel to Hattiesburg Mississippi
East Carolina @ Southern Miss
7:30pm Eastern.
I'll be watching them at the pub,
Where it will be a...
First Down... PIRATES!
I got to the pub and got settled in front of a TV just in time to see the end of the 2nd quarter and watch the Pirates miss a 41 yard field goal to end the half 10 to 10. The second half was an absolute nail biter. Just when you thought the boys were pulling it out Pinkney throws an interception for an 87 yard touchdown return. Damn, damn, damn. The game settles into a 4 down and punt slogfest with the occaisional interception. the end of the 4th the pirates are making a good drive and... FUMBLE! Crap and Damn. It was a fumble. I watched it over and over. Knees not on the ground, butt not on the ground, ball- on the ground. Pirates retain possesion, why I don't know. Maybe because every other call in the game went against the Pirates, desesrved or not and the officials started to feel bad. Pirates punch it in with 12 seconds left to go after four tries down the center and we go into OT 17 all.
Pirates get the first drive in OT and after 5 or 6 plays inside the 10 yard line kick a field goal. 20-17 ECU. Southern Miss's turn. First play of the drive, pass over the top to the endzone. Intercepted! Pirates win! Wait... Under review. Shit. These are the same officials that gave us the fumble call in the 4th. It's clean, and ECU wins. We are officialy 4-4 for the season. I can live with 50%. Final score...
20-17 East Carolina

Yee-gawds, Hattiesburg. My late mother lived there for a while, visiting her was like going back in time 50 years. So just on principle...

Go Pirates!

You still on about Appalachian State? Let's take a look at your season.
NC State: Kicked your butt 23-10
James Madison: Who?
Mars Hill: They have a football team?
Gardner Webb: Who?
Elon: Elon? Enough said.
University of Tenn: Now that's tough... Oh, wait UT at Chattanooga. Never mind.
Wofford: even half the students at Wofford never heard of them.
Georga: Another toughie... Southern Ga? Nevermind again.
Furman: Do I even have to say it? Furman?
Is this 6 or 11 man ball we're talking about here?
Cripes, most of the high school teams around here could beat that schedual.

Maybe, but most of our players can actually spell "schedule"!

You have your happiness...
I have mine....
Mine is just more consistent.
Tee Hee

Don't worry. Your season is almost over!

I did congratulate you though.

Go Mountaineers!

Schedual: (Skeh-du-al) n. A series of time appointed events veiwed with opposing opinions by two people.


As far as happiness goes, well, ignorance IS bliss. No wonder I never smile.

You just like the spelling because it includes "dual" and you never could resist a good altercation, albeit verbal....
Funny, I've never been accused of being "perky" myself.
Never been accused of being particularly wise either though...
