    Uzbekistan could change its name to Sandy Place, Kazakhstan to Borat’s Place, and Kyrgyzstan to whatever else, and Americans still wouldn’t know where those countries are or have any curiosity about them. They really shouldn’t do it on our behalf.

  3. Ed says:

    I know you don’t care but this was another awful week for the SEC.

    Arkansas and Kentucky were showing promise but proved they have a long way to go… aTm looks worse than ever… LSU is still terrible… Florida continues its freefall while Mizzou remains bad… Vandy and SC are playing like they always have… Tennessee is no good but will upset ‘Bama…

    The vast majority of the conference is bad and two of the marquee teams will have nothing next year. Remind me why we should worship the SEC?

  4. NoTeabagging says:

    Supporting Gurley. Both vague. Typical non-specific campaign message.
    Are they supporting Gurley the person? Gurley breaking the rules? or Gurley, the right to pimp his own brand Gurley?
