DAY 2. CURTAIN OPENS. STEVE SPURRIER STANDS AT PODIUM, DISMISSIVE GRIMACE ON HIS FACE; BOTH HANDS CLUTCHING THE SIDES OF THE ROSTRUM.
"coach talk about..." a feeble voice wavers from the audience
"NO I DON'T THINK I WILL TODAY. NOT UNTIL SOMEONE MANS UP AND REPLENISHES THE PAPER TOWELS IN THE BATHROOM."
[a dozen hotel staff and a few media members scurry for the exits]
"NOW. ANYONE CARE TO EXPLAIN WHAT THIS CREDIT CARD-LOOKIN' THING IS? THESE SOME KINDA SANKEY BUCKS OR WHAT?"
Our second day of football circuses begins with the HBC at 9:00 our time. Buckle in. Sumlin and crew will follow him in the late-morning slot. Meantime, here's the main #SECMD15 hub. Or you can just skip to the well-written parts, i.e., Chuck's recap and his introduction to the new Commish.
Speaking of the Commish...in a solid show of respect, all SEC teams will be choosing one September game in which they can honor Mike Slive by raising awareness for prostate cancer. The recently-retired Slive has the disease, and he's left some huge shoes to fill.
Meanwhile, back at the lab...
Coincidence or conspiracy? Yesterday we shared the Beaumont Business Journal's breaking story that a lake was in the works at the Spence Park tailgating area. And now we hear that Texas A&M researchers are working on a way to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. MAKES YOU THINK.
Have a fun Tuesday. Enjoy your Spurrier-Sumlin 1-2 morning punch.
