Somehow we’re already a sixth of the way through 2013. Blink and it will be football season again. The old adage about time moving faster the older you get? Yeah, it’s true. If only I’d believed that at 25 I’d have stopped more often and smelled a few more roses.
Instead my 20s were just one big enjoyable blur. Followed by a rapid decline into decrepitude. Ah, well.
The thought/lyric of the day comes from The Grateful Dead. It’s the Dead’s first appearance on the site. And it’s placement today has absolutely nothing to do — as far as you know — with all the Alabama fans claiming this we at MrSEC.com hate their Crimson Tide because we dared to say we would have booted two players two weeks quicker than Nick Saban did. Egads. In hindsight, maybe we should have displayed our hate for Saban and Bama a day earlier, too… instead of writing this. Guess we’re just not too good at carrying out vendettas… way too wishy-washy in who we hate from day to day.
“Alabama getaway. Alabama getaway. Only way to please me — turn around and leave and walk away.”
