Well Sports Fans, this will be short and sweet because The Red Man is dealing with a cranky editor today.  Yes, the old woman Slow is in a very bad mood after the season opener for her Gamecocks against her lifelong nemesis, the Aggies from Texas.

Briefly, and not to belabor any points, the Gamecocks had their ass handed to them on a silver platter last night (52 to 28, but who’s keeping score) by the military men from College Station, and it wasn’t a pretty sight.  They never even had to call for their Twelfth Man because the Eleven that were playing took care of business without any trouble.

And speaking of Pretty, it was so bad she went upstairs to watch the US Open Tennis while the rest of us stuck it out in the bleacher seats in the den with Slow, who was a total wreck by the end of the night.  Such language, my , my.  You know it’s football season when the language gets salty – and I do mean it was saltier than the french fries at the state fair.

Time for the Old Bald Coach to wave a magic wand over this flock of Cocks, or it could be a LONG season at Casa de Canterbury for The Red Man and his pack.

Oh, well.  It’s not about winning and losing – it’s how you play the game, right?

That would be, oh so very WRONG.  The Cocks had an 18 straight home game winning streak shattered

 Get me outta here Percy – here’s hoping all your favorite teams win this weekend and that you have more fun than we did last night at Casa de Canterbury…
