Gin & tonics + helmet on football = stunning upset and creepy old guys storming the field...

What a football weekend! GT beat the Florida State Seminoles for the first time since 1975. Tech’s defense held their own against an over size opponent, half of which have never step foot in an FSU academic building, the other half made up of former, current, and future felons. Paul Johnson ran his triple option with determination, losing starting QB Josh Nesbitt in the first half. Freshman Jaybo Shaw, took over and experienced his gang like initiation into big time Div1A college football. He struggled a bit, but held onto the 10 point lead GT had amassed and took advantage of the few opportunities he was given to eat the clock up and ensure Tech punted FSU back into their own territory.

After FSU narrowed the lead to three late in the fourth quarter they marched down to GT's 3 yard line and with 45 seconds remaining, gold helmet met ball and GT recovered an FSU fumble in their own end zone securing victory. It was easily the best game I've ever seen at Bobby Dodd Stadium and after successfully smuggling in and consuming ALL the fresh lime laced gin and tonics, there was only one thing left to do,

STORM THE FIELD!!!


Army did their best against Air Force in front of a rare sell out crowd at West Point, and their defense actually looked pretty solid throughout most of the game. They continue to struggle on third down and gave up scoring opportunities time after time. It wasn’t a total loss though, as they continue to show improvement and for Army that’s almost as good as a win.

Jets beat the Bills, The Falcons beat my sorrier than sorry Raiders, the Cowboys and Pat’s lost again. That’s a DAMN good football weekend I’d say…

I don't know if you the Giants-Cowboys game, but it was 12 shades of awesome! The Cowboys are completely clueless! There was a seat that opened up on the Arizona Cardinal bandwagon, but I gave it to someone else. Keep walking.
