Rebel Roundup - 8/6/09

Football Season is a Month Away
Juco, Whiskey Wednesday, and I have been working on putting together a schedule of blog events and, trust me, we're excited.  This season is gonna be fun 'round hurr.  We should have something hot and fresh on the site just about every-single-day of the season.  We may even have some opportunities for you loyal Cup fans to, let's say, get involved around here.  Of course, despite how competent we may seem, comments, criticisms, suggestions, and "Geaux to H3LL Ole Pi$$" comments are always welcomed.

The only truly CRAZYFACE that occurs in the video is riiiiiiiiiight here:
