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.
