    Until last week's win, the joke around Tally was how do you spell Willie?

    One W and 2 L's.

    Will we be able to keep the .500 record til the end of the season? Will another bowl game be in our future?

    I kind of doubt it, but Gene's broadcast {when run through the internet} is timed up just right with the TV, so all is good for now.

    Well, other than being down 0-7 to Louisville.

    At halftime I switched to listening to the TV guys, and we came for behind and won. It looked really bad for the G&G. Down by 3 with 2 1/2 minutes left, and we couldn't stop them from running. They were getting first downs and we had to burn a TO. But when it looked like all was lost, the bad guys passed when they should have run. We got the pick, then a couple of long pass plays later, a TD for a 4 point lead.

    Above .500 for the first time in the Willie Era. May we stay there for as long as that Era lasts.

    Yep, I'm still in one piece. Have some roof damage, as well as dings on the cars and truck. Lost all my barns, sheds and other out buildings. Lost 90% of my timber. But the wife and I are doing well, and that is what matters.

    Thanks for checking on me. Sorry I didn't see your post sooner. I was 2 weeks without power, and a little longer than that to get wifi back. I've been back online for a few days, but hadn't got this far down my watched thread list.

    I've been though a lot of hurricanes, but nothing like this one. It was bad. We had 90 minutes of 130 mph winds.

    Not even close. All my shit wasn't in the yard after the football game. You guys are good this year. Good luck with Bama in the playoffs.

    Since we have a couple of Natty's in football, I'm putting all my energy into rooting for the hoops team. Ham has a good group this year. We start the season tomorrow against the Gators. No cable yet at work, so I'll be streaming my Dish Anywhere as long as it lasts, then listen to Gene on the radio for the rest of the game.

    i know, i was looking to see what college footbal games were on tonite and there about 4 or 5 college basketball games on tonite.

    i looked into that dish tailgater they have been advertising with chris fowler. those things are pricey. was gonna pop one in the RV but that's too much money to watch TV for me.

    I have a buddy who sold his house and is living in a travel trailer. He had the Dish deal to start with, but he dropped it pretty soon. With a decent antenna, you can get 12-15 stations here.

    My wife is the TV junkie in the house. Our dish bill is close to $150, about a hundred dollars more than I'm comfortable with. Crazy thing is, a lot of the FSU hoops games are on channel 13.2 out of Panama City. My dish package doesn't have it, but I had a TV set up in the barn with rabbit ears that would pick it up. Also on my cable package at work, but I've heard it will be months before we get cable back.

    I’m assuming you rode it out, I’m sure that was some scary shit!! You know what they say, you can replace stuff but not lives. Good to hear you made it out. Safely..

    now they have an O to match their usual great D.

    they could probably beat the Browns this year. maybe the Bills too.

    Yep, we rode it out at my house. Sister came over, but BIL is one stubborn son of a gun. He stayed in their trailer. Lots of trailers lost, but theirs did alright. He did call to say, "there goes your Mamma's trailer." {Sister lost two of Mamma's old places. The trailer had a pole barn over it, and it blew away, taking some of the trailer roof with it. And I hear the old house has a tree in the kitchen. I went over there the day after the storm, but couldn't get to the front of the house. Now the power folks have cleared a path going to the power pole, so we can go in that way}

    I wouldn't mind that. But it's very doubtful O-line is not up to the task. Some games the D shows up, other games not so much.
