Despite Ole Miss football's lackluster showing this season, this video gets me fired up. Hotty Toddy.

Last week, Team Oracle's defense of the America's Cup unofficially began with the arrival of their two AC45 Catamaran in San Francisco Bay. This America's Cup will be the first to feature catamarans.

These things are mean:

For the first time, Budweiser is altering its iconic design to feature special patriotic cans in stores this summer. With every case sold, Budweiser will donate $0.05 to Folds of Honor; a foundation which supports military families through scholarships and other opportunities.

These cans are phenomenal, drink up!

Georgia On My Mind

It began last night with that band from Athens, GA.....

And it will continue through the weekend, as I keenly watch that tournament taking place in Augusta, GA:

The William Brown Project

If your interests include Rolexes, Land Rovers, hunting, angling, exotic travel, bacon, vintage military garb, and superb photography, I strongly recommend The William Brown Project. I've poured over this blog the last few days, and the content is fantastic.
Here is a small taste:

Delfest 2011

While I would rather attend the Hangout Festival, Delfest's line-up is looking stout. Anyone planning on attending any festivals this summer?

East of Oxford Approved: Allman Brothers Band On Demand

For those of you who utilize Comcast as your cable provider, Comcast On Demand is currently featuring the Allman Brothers Band's concerts from their 2010 Beacon run. The Allman Brothers have played this particular New York venue close to 200 times in the past 20 years.

So stop being a ramblin' man/woman for one night and sit back and enjoy.

Ole Miss Baseball 2011

The Ole Miss Rebels are off to a 10-1 start, ranked 28th nationally, and in the midst of a 15 home game stand. I would love to spend this weekend watching the Rebels play Tulane from the right field student section of Swayze Field.
Cold beer, crawfish, friends and baseball-it doesn't get much better than that.

UGA on Swayze Field:

"It's the best environment I've been around,” Georgia slugger Rich Poythress said. “I've been to LSU. I've been a lot of places, and it's the best environment, other than Omaha, that I've seen in college baseball."

"It's not just the environment,” UGA head coach Dave Perno said. “It's the stadium. They've got everything. It's done right. It's the best we've been in, not just the environment and being tough to play in, but just the looks, the aesthetics. Everything's done right and I tip my hat to Mike and Ole Miss and their athletic department. They've done a great job."

Murray's Toggery Stand-Ups?

To the naked eyes these appear to be Patagonia Stand-Ups.

But upon closer inspection........Nantucket Red Stand-Ups?

J Roddy Watson & The Business

(Excuse the giant picture, but it's pretty awesome)

J Roddy Watson & the Business opened for the Drive-By Truckers last night at the 9:30 Club. I was very impressed by their set, and I'm happy to discover they are currently headquartered in Baltimore, Md, so I hope to have another chance to see them.

(Look like the Allman Brothers much?)

While they have been described as "AC/DC fronted by Jerry Lee Lewis," I would describe their sound as Kings of Leon, with a little more country and soul. I don't believe their studio album does their sound justice, you really to see them live to fully appreciate their sound and soul.

Give them a listen if you have a chance, and let me know what you think.

Is Nothing Sacred?

Alabama-Auburn Rivalry Reaches New Low: Tree Poisoning

While I'm all for friendly inter-conference and state rivalries, I do believe this crosses the line-the needless destruction of both 130 year old trees and tradition. Traditions such as Toomer's Corner are the reason why college football and it's various rivalries are so entertaining and passionate.

I imagine this travesty being equivalent to a Mississippi State fan poisoning the trees of the Grove, which would totally change the culture and vibe of fall Saturdays in Oxford, Mississippi. It will be interesting to see how Auburn's fan base responds to this event. I can only hope the responsible parties are caught and charged appropriately.

National Signing Day 2011

If you need me, I'll be on Rivals, as Ole Miss is still in the running for some key recruits.

Hotty Toddy.

Koozies are a great place to park your beer-keeping the contents cold while protecting your hand from condensation, and also often protecting the fact you're drinking Natural Light in a sports coat.
I've also found koozies are a cheap and easy way to remember memorable places and events, here a few I've managed to hold on to:

L-R: South Carolina Inaugural BBQ 2007, Rebels for McCain, Peg Leg Pete's, Flora-Bama, and the Shark Tank-Cotton Bowl 2010.

Mumford & Sons

I am extremely unqualified to talk about new music, due to the fact I pretty much exclusively listen to Hall & Oates, the Band, Neil Young and the Talking Heads. Despite this, I really believe the Mumford & Sons album "Sigh No More" is awesome. This was originally going to be a best albums of 2010 post, but I realized the only albums released in 2010 that I listened to were "Sigh No More" and the Drive-By Truckers 2010 album "The Big To-Do. Please let me know if you've got any recommendations for me.

Mumford & Sons "Sigh No More"

Favorite Songs on Album- Winter Winds, Roll Away Your Stone, White Blank Page.

Old Virginny

Volunteer Traditions Virginia Cap

Oh, to be home again,
Down in old Virginny,
With my very best friend,
They call him Ragtime Willie.
I can't wait to sniff that air,
Dip'n snuff, I won't have no care,
That big Rockin' Chair won't go nowhere.

Another great band out of Oxford, MS. I was fortunate enough to see them a few times at Proud Larry's, during my time at Ole Miss. There are a few songs on their Myspace. Check them out, great porch music.
