Editor's Note--Greetings from steamy hot Florida! My first post as a Floridian. Yes, I have been doing "Florida" things. Including the "Early Bird Dinners" at 4:30pm with some of the "blue hairs" of Palm Beach. But the time for maxxin and relaxin has come to an end. Well, maybe not an end, but it's officially football season, and we got winning to do!! Speaking of winning, who better to bring us in to what undoubtedly will be another winning season in 2014, but Big D his damnself! Welcome to all of you, welcome to Big D, and welcome to my shuffleboard game with guys named Mort and Stan at 3:30 pm today (before the Early Bird Dinner). Oh, and a happy and healthy Labor Day weekend! Go Bigus Dickus. Gooooo!!!--R.B.
Well, well, well, Richie B, I hope you have your pastel blazer, white pants, and comfortable shoes with no socks, in TRUE Florida style. This season, as always, will be one helluva ride......
At high noon, eastern time, and 9 a.m. on the west coast, on Saturday, the MIDSHIPMEN of NAVY host THE ohio state university. We all feel bad about the QB for ohio state being injured. We also were going against the buckeyes even WITH their QB. Now they don't have him, and they still lay 16.5 AT NAVY?!? Thank you. Bookmaker. The running game for NAVY is sooooo powerful. That keeps the ball away from osu. It also keeps the game close. Take the points pal with NAVY.
Word out of HAWAI'I is the university is going to "de-emphasize" football. Say it aint so, RAINBOW WARRIORS! Allllllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaa. If there aren't some big changes this season, the football program could be closed at HAWAI'I. We smell a motivational factor here for the rainbows. Washington comes in with a new coach, new players, etc. They lay 17 in Honolulu. We'll give it a shot late Saturday night with HAWAI'I and the points. Aloha.
Finally on Sunday, in a "strange" game, tennessee hosts UTAH STATE. tennessee "only" lays 6. Hmmmm. Very tricky. UTAH STATE is a covering machine and tennessee has been going backwards for a few years now. Don't be surprised when the people call a UTAH STATE victory a "shocker". You won't be shocked pal. You heard it right here first. UTAH STATE plus the 6.
So the happy Labor Day weekend recap: Saturday: NAVY+16.5 vs ohio state, HAWAI'I+17 vs washington. Sunday: UTAH STATE+ 6 @ tennessee.
To all of you, a happy, healthy "unofficial" end of summer. Get some lobsters on the grill and the champagne on ice. Maybe even do like Richie B will be doing this weekend. Here are some clues from this video below.....Enjoy. God bless.
