2012 and War Eagle!

Posted: January 1, 2012 in Life in General

Welcome to 2012 everyone!  I certainly like even numbers as opposed to the odd one we just got rid of.  2012 has more of a solid feel than the rickety, open-ended 2011.  I’m hoping for better things all throughout my life and the lives of my wife and kids in this new year.

Ringing in 2012 NYC style!

We all stayed in last night, doing more watching than anything.  The evening started off well with the Auburn Tigers dominating the Chick-fil-A Bowl over Virginia.  The inconsistent defense and lacking discipline were once again evident, but the offense surprised us by breaking off numerous big plays.  This gave the defending National Champions an 8-win season and momentum heading into next year.  Great win by an extremely young team and with Zeke Pike coming in as a freshman QB next season, Auburn has The Plains once again trending up!

Now, tomorrow we get to see many bowl games but I’m only interested in one, the Grandaddy of them All, the Rose Bowl pitting Oregon v. Wisconsin.  Two very different teams should provide for a good game.  Monday night’s Fiesta Bowl may be worth watching with Stanford v. Oklahoma State, however Andrew Luck isn’t the QB everyone is making him out to be (when I look at him, I see Chad Pennington, not John Elway).

We have to wait another week+ to see LSU and Alabama play a rematch of a game LSU already has won on ‘Bama’s home turf.  Now they play on a neutral field and I’m sure ‘Bama fans are glad they won the popularity contest to get to face LSU again.  Here’s hoping the Bayou Bengals whip that sleazy Nick Saban and his team.  What is a Crimson Tide anyway?  I think my wife knows as well as women everywhere.

Many non-watchable NFL games on today, a nap is in order before the late games of interest, Kanasas City @ Denver and Cincy @ Baltimore.

Leaving you with a video from the musical group, the Grand Magnolias featuring Paul McDonald.  They have a great sound and are just at the tip of their iceberg.  Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1ntozBchRY&feature=player_embedded


Enjoy the day, Cats!!
