So, its rare that Gameday comes to the Palmetto, unless you count last week, which I don't. Since I told my bro-in-law to take a "Corso loves Cocks" sign, this has the potential to be the best signage in quite some time.
10:05 - Fans boo Corso
10:07 - First good sign "ESPN went from Agriculture to Culture in 1 Week"
10:09 - Fans Boo Corso
10:11 - Nomination for sign of the week: "Got Hip Pain?...www.jimmysnewhip.com" You go Jimmy Connors, you go.
10:15 - Chuck Weiss complains that cheeseburger eating team passes Notre Dame, plans to eat more cheeseburgers.
10:16 - Corso talks, fans boo... this could get fun
10:17 - First sight of a "Corso wears a Merkin" sign... you stay classy Carolina.
10:22 - A shot of West Virginia fans... it is hunting season. Is anyone else weirded out by the trend recently of random teams fans being in the crowds of gameday? I think they were at Auburn a few weeks ago and there was a large contingent of like Wisconsin fans. Why? Am I the only one who thinks that ESPN plants them? Someone should look into this.
10:25 - Click clack... Click clack... How is that not the dumbest commercial known to man?
10:29 - ESPN does a story on Notre Dame tackle Ryan Harris. Congrats, you're like 4 years too late. MTV had him on their True Life series for something about body issues... or something like that.
10:34 - Desmond Howard says style points count... no they don't.
10:35 - Corso talks, fans boo. A picture of Corso with a dress stapled on it is shown behind him.
10:38 - A commercial pops up for Nacho Libre, the "funniest movie of the year." No, no it wasn't. I could make through about 20 minutes, then I felt the need to turn it off, lest I hate Jack Black for the rest of my life. Just an absolutely horrible movie that deserves to be listed alongside Napoleon Dynamite.
10:41 - Chris Fowler introduces Lou Holtz - a chorus of Lou or Boos ring out, probably both. Contrary to popular belief, he is not well-liked in this state.
10:45 - I'm disappointed by the lack of "I saw BORAT with Fowler" signs or maybe a "What do you think Herbstreit?" sign. Come on, this is what college is about, making random signs.
10:48 - First "Overrated" Tennessee chants.
10:59 - Urban Meyer hearts Bill Belicheck. Man, this Gameday has not lived up to its potential.
11:01 - Two decent signs, one of which I've been monitoring for its extreme verbage:
"I dated a girl from Tennessee, she left me for her brother". Tried and true, though a bit wordy... and the girl I dated from Tennessee did not leave me for her brother, she was just promiscuous.
"Fulmer is a Stupid Fatty". Indeed... indeed.
11:09 - So I did a little research on the "Vote Virginia Norton" signs. Seems she is running for the Duval County Court Judge in Jacksonville, FL. She looks to be 34, a blond, kinda cute. I'd let her be my judge. www.vote-virginia.com
11:40 - Extremely boring second half. Fowler worked in a "Herbstreit", but otherwise nothing of note. Random signs: "I hate Ohio State", "Corso is a Game Cock"
11:45 - A story of Carolina QB Syvelle Newton. If anyone can find the mp3 of his song, let me know, it sounded outstanding. Also, a plug for my alma mater Furman. Syvelle's brother Cam wasa staring safety for FU while I was there, now he's a backup safety on the Falcons. In an unrelated note, former Furman wide receiver Bear Rineheart is the lead singer in the band needtobreathe. Damn good CD, go get it.
11:56 - STONER!!!! MLS PLUG!!!! PLUG IT!!!!
11:57 - Oh shhhhh, Fowler dropped another "Herbstreit" These two really hate each other.
12:00 - And here are the picks:
Kirk - USC
Corso - Tennessee
And so ends another gameday. Far less eventful than it should have been. Still... go out and get your merkins kids.
