For yet another offseason, it is 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.
We had more things planned for this week but that didn't happen. It's not as if it can't wait for next week, which is why that's exactly what we're going to do with most of it; we'll have it to you starting on Tuesday-ish. We're sorry for this transgression. I blame it mostly on Juco, but only because that's convenient for me. Real life has gotten a bit in the way, which is why a welcomed Memorial Day Weekend is ahead of us. Here are our three-day-weekend plans, as well as our theme song for this weekend, The Allman Brothers playing "Melissa." This 'un is for you, Melissa, whoever you may be.
TSUN - Not caring about science. Insulting people by calling them bookfarmers. Wearing wool at inappropriate times and growing elaborate mustaches.
Michael Thompson - Being as popular as a backup quarterback on a floundering football team.
Members of the 2010 signing class - Guns weed holla!
Patrick Patterson, Martez Eastland, Raymond Cotton, et al - Taking their talents elsewhere! For a second or third time...
Pete Boone - Being much better at Twitter than at keeping the athletic department competitive.
Kelsey Tompkins, an Employee at Starkville's Starbucks - GRINDIN' (coffee beans) FOR MY (customers, many of whom are students at Mississippi) STATE (University), MOTHERFUCKERS!
Ghost - I'll be in the surf of Hatteras, North Carolina. I won't be back until Monday night. I sure as shit ain't checking my work email.
Kyle Veazey - renting a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Andy Kennedy - negotiating the promoted salary of a person who helped drunkenly initiate the international incident with the cab driver. (That's not a joke.)
Mike Bianco - making no significant staff changes; expecting things to go differently next season
Les Miles - attending a wine tasting in California (This one tastes like grass..... trust me.)
