Meanwhile, at Lake Alice

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

All of my fellow Gators will know all about Lake Alice.

For those of you who are not UF alums, Lake Alice is a favorite spot on the University of Florida campus.

Although this is just a little guy, I can’t believe these people got so close to him while taking pictures, and I totally flipped my lid when the young lady asks the guy taking the video to “please grab my phone”.  WTH?

Anyhoo, we DO love our gators.  All of them.

Errict Rhett, Gator Great.

See the story of the Mr. 2 Bits Tradition, here.  It’s a fine one!

We got off to a reasonable start of the season, not bad, but no esophogheal spasms, either.  GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the Gators took back the State Saturday.  The victory was sweet, coming as it did on Ron Zook Field in Tallahassee.  The first (of many) for Coach Boom:

Needless to say, the fans at Clown School were none too pleased.  And in case there are any non-Gators reading…..here’s why we call them Clown College:

Does she NOT have any friends?

Finally….the officiating.  “Sucked” doesn’t begin to cover it.  I can’t really think of a word that captures such a shocking display.  So, for the ACC and their notoriously inept officials…..OVERCOME ADVERSITY ON THE FIELD!

Hey ACC and Your Crooked Refs, Too!

So Solly, Steve Spurrier (Not!)

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Well, yesterday started out in grand fashion with ESPN’s Game Day in Gainesville.  For once, Lee Corso put on the correct mascot head.  And then he pulled out a little Gator, dressed in orange and blue.  Herbstreit almost had a heart attack when he figured out it was NOT a rubber gator, it was real!  (The juvenile white gator is leucistic animal, not an albino…I’ve seen one at the Houston Zoo).  In any case, it was very cool!

The Gators proceeded to play one of the most bizarre first halves of ball I’ve ever seen….21 points on takeaways, while gaining only 29 yards during the half.  And the officiating!!!!   Suffice it to say that I’m not the only one who thought “SUCKED” is a mild term for the officiating.  Here’s Coach Boom at the half-time interview (with a friendly reporter):

That’s going to be a t-shirt, for sure, and a Will Muschamp signature.  Forever.

The team played lights out during the 3rd quarter, and by the end of the game, had once again put up more points in the second half (23) than they had during the first half (21).  44 – 11, good guys.  Sorry Steve, you got owned.

Video highlights of the game, here.

It’s 24 hours after kick-off, and I’m still amped up by the game, and this season.  It’s been a hell of a ride.  And next Saturday, well….

Please, someone, give me a “JORTS” comment

Love it…..we are already in the Leg Humpers’ heads (check out the comments).

Great Gator Turnout in Nashville

We boogied on home from Black Mountain in time to ensure we arrived before Saturday’s Gator game against Vandy.  My Gators put together another underwhelming (per usual against Vandy) but workmanlike performance.  And now, our record is 6 – 0 (5-0 SEC), and ranked #2/#3 in the polls.

AND…..facing the Old Ball Coach and his SC Gamecocks on Saturday, fortunately for us, in The Swamp.  We Gators still love Steve Spurrier, except for one week a year…he’s a fierce opponent.

GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
