So you win some, you lose some as the famous Peep Philosopher Plato once said.   Well, maybe not Plato exactly.   And possibly not even a Philosopher at all – but anyway SOMEBODY made it up because I’ve heard the old woman Slow mutter it a thousand times during football seasons for years.   Yeah, that’s one of her favorite football sayings along with X-rated language that The Red Man won’t repeat so as not to offend any of his Sports Fans in cyberspace tonight.   Let’s just say I had to leave the TV room at one point during the Cocks – Gators Game today when the situation was tense in the third quarter.   Hello out there.   Earth to Slow.   It’s a GAME, for God’s sake.  You’re sitting in the den by yourself shouting obscenities at a TV!   Seriously.   Get a grip.

Question:   Who is the BIGGEST GATOR FAN in Montgomery, Texas?

Answer:  Why, it’s none other than Ex-Neighbor City Council Peep Jon!

Question:   Where did the Gamecock go when he crossed Highway 105 tonight?

Answer:   Why, he went to spend the night at a Florida Gator’s house since his team beat theirs 17 – 12 today!   He’s resting comfortably at the front door and waiting to be discovered by Ex-Neighbor Jon first thing in the morning…I wonder which of the Little Women of Worsham Street helped that Cock find his way to the Gator house???

We’ll see what merriment tomorrow brings to the ‘Hood.   By the way, Slow’s Horns got Hooked by Mizzou so I’m thinking it’s a better year to be a Cock than a Longhorn – for a change.

Adios, Sports Fans – hope you’ve had a fun weekend so far and that you’ve taken advantage of the full moon to excuse erratic behavior.   I know I have!  

Catch you later…and thanks for sending The Red Man’s Rants and Raves over 8,000 hits!!   Big Deal for me and my overpaid editor.   Muchas gracias for staying tuned…
