Wanted: Barbour Quilted Club Jacket

I know it's a little premature to be considering a Barbour right now, but this jacket is solid. I really like the Olive/Blaze orange combination. The Club jacket also has the zippers, which the Liddesdale does not.
Unfortunately this particular jacket has been discontinued. O'Connell's has a single XS available, but that's the only one I could find after a pretty extensive search. I think I could settle for this Moleskin Liddesdale, which is available from Orvis.

Ole Miss Football 2010

2009-Jevan Snead

2010-Jeremiah Masoli

Jeremiah Masoli headed to Ole Miss
While I was utterly against Masoli playing at Ole Miss, now I am intrigued by the possiblities. Ole Miss was picked to finish last in the SEC West, so we will not have the pressure of last season's inflated ranking and hype.
Masoli will definitely bring a new element to our offense, and it will be interesting to see if he can have the same success, he had in the Pac-10, against the elite SEC defenses.
Of course, this is all speculation, conditional on him learning our offense, but I'm eager to see what happens. Hotty Toddy.

Drive-By Truckers- 9:30 Club 7.23.10

This was probably the best Drive-By Truckers show I have ever had the pleasure of attending. The sound and crowd were awesome, and I think the band really enjoyed the venue and atmosphere, as they played 20+ songs.
Heres the live recording, definitely worth the download, if you're a fan.

RIP James Gammon

WithLeather sums it up perfectly-

"Major League is the greatest baseball movie of all time. And yes, I know that Field of Dreams, The Sandlot and The Natural exist. There are only so many baseball comedies out there, and even fewer that don’t involve children. And in Major League, there was a cast of characters so over the top and ridiculous, that only one man that could get them to ban together and win some games. That man was Lou Brown, who was played by James Gammon. Gammon died Friday, and he was a goddamn legend."

Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy

I'm usually not a fan of fruit-infused beers, but I can't get enough of Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. It's blend of lemonade and beer makes for a perfect and refreshing summer drink and while you can definitely taste the lemonade, it is not overly sweet.
Summer Shandy, unlike most specialty beers is available in both bottles and cans. I love the fact it's available in cans, both for personal preference and ease of transportation.
Leinenkugel only sells this seasonal beer from April to August, so your window to crack open a Summer Shandy is rapidly closing, as summer flies by.

Out of Season Ebay Purchase Part II

I swear I don't have an Ebay problem, but I just bought another pair of boots....I didn't think I would win these but the auction ended on the 4th of July, so I think no one was really paying attention, including myself.
I think these Orvis Gokey boots will be a nice change of pace from my Red Wing 1132's, when paired with some Orvis Rhinohide pants or Mountain Khakis.

Out of Season Ebay Purchase

I was able to get these for a steal on Ebay, possibly because the last thing anyone wants to wear in this 100 degree heat are Maine Hunting Shoes. I love my Bean boots, but I hate the ordeal of lacing them, so in my opinion, these are the best of both worlds.
