This will be short, as I’m working up a response to Burnt Orange Nation’s call for thoughts from a Tennessee perspective on two-quarterback systems. Short version: no. Peter, if you’re reading, I’m not sure whether you’re getting my emails. If you are, and you are ignoring me on purpose and were wanting some other Tennessee blogger to respond instead, then, well, this is me, scratching a non-existent itch on the back of my head in embarassment after thinking you were waving to me instead of the person behind me.
Jim Bob Cooter got a 34 on the ACT? That’s . . . um, pretty good. Being smart apparently doesn’t keep you from doing something stupid, though, does it? Jim Bob, love ya, man, but go to bed, okay?
Respected NFL talent analyst Gil Brandt apparently thinks former UT tight end Jason Witten is the best young tight end in the NFL. Witten, an Elizabethton native, was way undervalued in the NFL draft, and the Cowboys got a deal.
New recruit Brent Vinson has been nothing but books since signing day, hoping to avoid ineligibility so he can join the Vols this fall. Somebody needs Jim Bob.
Oh, and I got my hair cut yesterday. Woo hoo. I’ve been seeing the sign for the new hair place — Sports Clips — for a couple of months now, and thought it was just another Super Fantastic Sam’s Cost Cutters place. But it’s not. It’s a hair place for guys. There’s a big screen t.v. tuned to ESPN in the waiting area instead of glossy magazines called Hair Styles of Rich and Famous Women Who Eat on a Weekly Basis Yet Have Superb Hair Follicles. Stylists wear jogging pants and keep their stuff in lockers. Sports
parapha, paraphe, stuff (where’s Jim Bob when you need to spell a word?) adorns (learnt that one from Cooter) the walls. And the cherry on top? Little televisions at each station so you can catch up on the World Cup instead of chatting about the weather for twenty minutes. How was my haircut? Hey, we’re guys, what does it matter? It just needs to be shorter. (Actually, Kelly, my stylist was excellent, and I got a very nice cut that should last me about a month.) Anyway, it’s Sports Clips. Haircuts for guys. Check ‘em out.
