COCK-A-DOODLE WHO?  Why, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, that’s WHO!  The GAMECOCKS rewarded The Red Man and the rest of the Gamecock Nation with a  win at the Capital One Bowl yesterday in Orlando!   And this wasn’t just any old Bowl win, either.   Nosirree.   This was Win numero  (which is Spanish for number) ELEVEN for the 2011 Cocks!!   Sweet Jesus.   Does it get any better than this?  Go ahead and set a record why don’t you…the old woman Slow says she hasn’t had this much fun since 1984 when the Cocks won 10 games.   Bless her heart.   She needs to get a life.

The first half made me so nervous I thought I might puke on the Worsham Street carpet I pissed on while the daffy old twit was gone to see Pretty last week.   And speaking of Pretty, Slow and Pretty kept the cell phone cyber wires hot during the second half of the game when Pretty got to Casa de Canterbury after she got off work from the General Store.   Oh, yeah.   Cell phones…busy.   Thank God for Pretty.   The old woman always LOVES to talk to Pretty during a Gamecock game…they get all riled up about the Peeps in the Convict Uniforms and their whistles and they just rave and yee haw whenever the Cocks do something good which wasn’t too much to yee haw about until Alshon Jeffrey’s Incredible Catch in the end zone at the end of the second half.    Cock-a-doodle-WHO??  MVP Alshon, that’s WHO!!  

  Eat your heart out, Doug Flutie – Connor Shaw’s Hail Mary was full of grace, too.   Sweet Jesus.   Does it get any better than this??  Connor can run, Connor can pass, Connor can take a hit and mostly, Connor can THINK.   The Old Bald Coach may have found a quarterback.  Cock-a-doodle-WHO??   Quarterback Connor Shaw, that’s WHO!

 And speaking of the Old Bald Coach, The Red Man takes back the nasty things he used to say about him when he coached at Florida.   Ok, so I may have been a little hasty when I said I wished he would burn in hell back in the day.   Now, I say Coaching Genius and thank God for him.   What a difference a day makes.    Cock-a-doodle WHO??   Coach Steve Spurrier, that’s WHO!!

But, I have to say for all the hysteria about the Incredible Catch and Connor Shaw and Alshon Jeffrey and the Old Bald Coach, The Red Man loves the D.   That’s right.  If moi played football, I would be a defensive cornerback so I could hit, Hit, HIT!    Ta-dah.   Drum roll, please.    My Game Ball goes to the Gamecock Defense for their play above and beyond the call of duty all season long.  My Barks go to Ingram, Clowney, Allen, Gilmore and the rest of you hard-hitting banging and clanging rugged men we call the D.   Paw Snaps!!   Cock-a-doodle WHO??  The Gamecock Defense, that’s WHO!!

All’s well that ends well, as I am fond of saying in good times, and the times don’t get any better than this…so get me outta here Percy, I’m feeling the need to crow.
