Morning Blog News Update: Lite edition

I've forgotten how to do this, so I am going to do a Morning Blog News light to get me back into the swing of things.

A drought buster?
There's a wad of rain (that really doesn't sound good, does it) heading up from Texas. We can use it. Expect rain and cool weather with highs in the 40s.

Egg Bowl
Props to State for an amazing come-from-behind victory. I don't really have a dog in this hunt (no pun intended) but Coach O for 8's mid-field 4th down gamble when Ole Miss was up by two touchdowns was the dumbest call I can recall ever seeing. I haven't heard it yet, but I know someone will blame David Cutcliffe for the call. Rick Cleveland is right -- it is Christmas come early for State fans -- and especially for Sylvester Croom. He's living proof that if you want to be loved, win. And note to you Bowl reps out there, you can't go wrong picking Mississippi State. The fans are so engergized that they will not only show up at your bowl, they would walk on their hands to get there.

Bush loses major ally in Australia
Australian Prime Minister John Howard has lost in a humiliating defeat to Labor leader Kevin Rudd. Rudd has promised to immediately sign the Kyoto treaty and withdraw Australia's 550 combat troops from Iraq. Howard was Australia's second-longest serving leader.

The SEC is whacked, #1 LSU gets whacked.
Arkansas beat LSU yesterday in a barn-burner, triple overtime 50-48 win and thus completely screwed up the National Championship picture.

Glad you're back!

Good to be back -- if I ever recover from being gone.

I hope it doesn't take you as long to read the comments as it did me reading everything that happened after my computer blew up until I got it fixed. It took me all afternoon.

I NEVER watch football on TV, but something told me to turn on the Egg Bowl yesterday, which I did with 9 minutes left and Ole Miss ahead 14-0. I was screaming and hollering like I went to State, even though I went to Southern. My dad was a loyal State fan who never missed a game. I know he would have been so excited!

Croomed still means something!

This has been one crazy football season all around -- not just in the SEC.
We were at a restaurant last night, and had to ask the waiter to turn one of the TVs off NFL network news so we could watch the LIVE football game. How wrong was that?? People up here just don't respect college football . . .
