Apologies: we spent most of the day putting together the delayed Alphabetical, which should go up tomorrow morning in all its glory. In the meantime, please enjoy This Week In Schadenfreude. it contains this from the South Carolina/Tennessee game, an invocation that may be our favorite pregame prayer of all time.
So, the invocation at Neyland Stadium this evening was given by a Catholic gentleman … he said something along the lines of, "We look out and see the black mixed with the orange in the stands tonight, and it reminds us of our own mortality." It was, shall we say, ominous.
SO METAL. We can only hope he delivered this through a black metal voice box for maximum effect.
The other news is the alleged invitation of alleged schools to the Big East, a group that allegedly includes alleged invitees Boise State, UCF, Navy, Air Force, Houston, and a mystery school rumored to allegedly be SMU (allegedly.) If this is the proper list of invitees, the new names for the Big East are as follows:
- The Fun Belt
- Grimm's Football Tales
- Seven Animals, Two RenFair Extras, Two Soldiers, And One Drunk Survivalist
- The Aristocrats
- YOUR AD HERE
- Velvet Revolver
- The Ass Menagerie
- Pho 54 Restaurant (And Football Conference)
- BEAST COAST BIAS
- Carbon Profilebottom Nightmare Band
