To start the week ...

If you’re like me, you follow any situation involving cowbells any chance you can get. Well, luckily we have something.

Georgia visits Mississippi State on Sept. 25 – and I think we can all agree that there’s no better trip in the SEC than StarkVegas. The SEC has cracked down on Mississippi State’s use of cowbells, decreeing they can basically only be used on stoppages of play: After touchdowns, in between quarters, etc.

If the rule is broken, the school will first be fined $5,000, then $25,000, then $50,000. The fourth possible fine isn’t specified, but I’m guessing it has something to do with never being able to leave Starkville again.

(Don’t mess with the SEC league office. They have that kind of power.)

Meantime, Georgia returns to practice this afternoon after a 48-hour layoff. We’ll have a full report later – well, a full report of what we’re let in to see – but here are a few completely non-Bulldog related notes to fill some time:

- At the behest of David Hale, I finally started watching Breaking Bad. Impressive first episode. Very dark. I think they capture Albuquerque pretty well, having visited there. I’m curious to see where they go from here. Feel free to give me an idea, but no spoilers.

- Speaking of AMC shows, Mad Men was pretty good last night. Don Draper is such a complex character; I want to like him, then he does stuff like firing the babysitter for something beyond her help. (OK, you can argue that she should have known little Sally was up to something in the bathroom, but I would have been more forgiving than Draper.)

- And finally, the most important thing: I need a good fantasy football team nickname. I’m taking suggestions, with only two stipulations: It has to be 20 characters or less, and it has to be clever.

Preferably, we’re looking for some topical and relevant. But I'm not adverse to references to cowbells or, speaking of Will Ferrell, SNL Celebrity Jeopardy.

I went with a South Park reference last year, and it obviously struck fear in the hearts of my competition: Fingerbangers

How about Teenage Mutant Ninja Urkels? Suspenders would be a key part of the uniform.

Don Draper is a puzzle wrapped in an enigma, but I always find myself rooting for him. Glad to see some Mad Men action on the blog!

Seth Emerson said...

Thanks for the suggestions - keep 'em coming.

Eric, my current theory is that Don Draper is a bad, selfish guy. But Dick Whitman is at heart a good person. You kind of saw that in the recent episode. The question is whether Draper or Whitman will win out in the end.

If you think season 1 of Breaking Bad is good just wait until you get done with season 3. Only TV show in years that is a must watch for me on Sunday.

Name for fantasy team: Amish Ferrari Racing team

Had an Auburn friend when I lived in Columbus who always said that "Starkville is the most accurately named town in the South." He also referred to Starkville as the armpit of the south.

I used to use the Poon Tang Clan, but I never won much with that, so I switched up to another team name I don't win much with.

I've entered a contest to win a walk-on role on that retro-licious TV show, "Mad Men".

If you wouldn't mind taking a couple of seconds to vote for me, go to my blog, or copy and paste the following link which goes right to my picture:

Thanks a bunch!
