I have a sneaking suspicion that match was on ESPN Classic 30 minutes after it was over.


Well, if you can't find a tournament to play in ...

I am so hating on you right now. But I gotta admit, you win the "best way to take advantage of a week off" award.


College Football

I know you're Australian, but you went to Georgia Southern.

Cant believe everyone gets so excited for college football. Most of the games are average at best. It is a great party though. #NFL's betterSept. 10 via web Favorite Retweet Reply

I never went to college, but I've been to a bunch of parties and games; I don't think you took advantage of the "college experience."

Skill level is much better in NFL. But college games and season is far more exciting and cutthroat than NFL. College=bestyearsoflife #loyalSept. 10 via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

Even though I'm a Gator hater ...

Making your own soundtrack to the game ... big pimpin'!

I see Plaxico worked hard on his push off in prison. Worked like a charm and was concealed nicely...Sept. 12 via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply

Nothing can turn a nice, calm man into a bitter, savage beast quicker than his team losing.
