Alright, by most accounts A&M is exactly where we thought we would be at this point. Which is fine, now we show what we are as a football team. But besides that, former Alabama Agriculture Commissioner Candidate, Dale Peterson is here to talk about what he is here to do.

For those of you who have not followed this article for the past few years, you can click here for the rundown. To sum it up quickly though, Dale made a bit of a viral hit eight years ago, telling the state of Alabama, and the whole nation, how he was going to get rid of the thugs and criminals, and stop those meddling kids from stealing his campaign signs.

So let’s break this one down as well, in full disclosure this video is four years old, but worth the time.

First off, Dale has definitely been watching Turner Classic these past few years. How great is this cinematography? And a title card, someone has a bigger budget.

:05 Wait, who the hell is he looking at? The director should have had a squeaky toy, to get Dale to look the right way. Dale jumps immediately into his run-ins with the law. He was arrested for stealing two cases of beer from Wal-Mart. But Pawwwwl, he was wasn’t stealing because it was Dos Equis. Dale was just getting rid of immigrant beer taking honest American beer’s jobs.

:20 Holy shit! A page wipe a la PowerPoint. Christ, the Press in Alabama, is a liberal outfit. Good to know.

:58 Another page wipe! Not just in politics, Dale, all press is good press. Like and subscribe, comment down below!

1:12 Hey pal, maybe if you didn’t do all this stealin’, stop bringing it up. Doesn’t it seem like he is just remembering all of the things he has had to do in the past months.

1:45 I think Dale edited this himself. He learned some new interweb tricks and wanted to show them off. But at least he tells it the way it is every time...regardless.

2:01 He just can’t help himself. God I wish this video would have just been him explaining the deep media conspiracy that set him up at a Wal-Mart.

2:15 Really Dale, no ego? I wrote a 1000 word article about your ego. and if you search Dale Peterson it appears your wife ran in Bama as well and you were front and center in that video.


2:51 SPOILER ALERT! He totally let everyone down. He did that by being arrested again, this time at a Costco for eating a whole container of cashews, setting back on the shelf and leaving. I’m not angry at all, Dale why aren’t you competing as a competitive eater!

Now, none of this has much of anything to do with Auburn, other than Dale being from Alabama, but sometimes it’s just fun to be silly.

I will be in Amsterdam this weekend cheering on our Ags, and if anyone knows a great sports bar there please let me know. I am following my weekly sign off for sure this weekend. Have fun, be safe and BTHO auburn!


  • No song list or descriptions this week, I’t taking the early train out of Germany to Amsterdam and I won’t have my laptop. I normally add the new releases on Friday morning. Hope everyone enjoys!
