For yet another offseason, it is summertime. Sweet, beautiful, sweltering summertime. Fireworks, cold beer, smoky barbecue, and bikinis define the time. We're having fun, and we would like you to as well. While our Autumn weekends will be engulfed in the conflagration of college football fandom, those of our Summer will be fun and varied. As such, we Cuppers would like to share with you our Summer weekend plans, along with the weekend plans of a few others of note, in order to hopefully give you ideas as to enjoyably bide your time until kickoff. This weekend's theme song? "Middle of Nowhere" by Hot Hot Heat, because that pretty much describes the weekend for most Mississippians.
Mark Richt - Recruiting RBs off prison league teams, watching the Blind Side and taking notes on how to turn around someone's life. Still unflappably handling his program, despite the WARRRGARBLGODAWGSSICEMARPARP portion of his fan base.
The Sun - enjoying all the press coverage it's been getting. Corporate is starting to notice .
Isaiah Crowell - Contacting the NRA, shouting "I thought I was in Georgia!?"
The Supreme Court - Trolling.
The American Public - Getting, like, really mad and stuff. That, or embarrassingly excited. Y'all it's way too warm outside for all this emotion. Pass the gin and make sure I have enough ice cubes; I don't have time for all this fussin and a-hollerin'.
Dave Clark, Third Base Coach for the Houston Astros - Taking a load off for the weekend; icing down the ol' peener and veggies.
Most of the people who live in the Southeast - Staying inside.
Other people - Dying.
The Denizens of Colorado Springs - Gettin' pretty fed up with people bitching about the heat. "Oh, it's 99 degrees in Chicago? That must be so tough. How will you ever manage?"
[Seriously, it's hotter than two rats screwin' inside of a wool sock out there, y'all. Drink plenty of water and be safe.]
