RE: Disaster dilemma

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
At least you're just waiting on a coach.  I'm waiting on a football and basketball team.  Alabama's football season was pretty bad this year (the worst in 40 something years).  Add to that we got beat by 54 points by AUBURN on Sunday in basketball.  At least baseball season will be here before too long (runners up in the College World Series last year.)

We are born with our eyes closed and our mouths open,
