Five SEC teams in the top ten (-:

This should be a great game to watch !!! Once all came south for the bowl games. Now all come south to see superior football teams.

Maybe this is the much predicted, "The South will rise again". But it only happens on Saturday in the Fall. LOL

First Friday and Border Bash.

Together (pause) again...... my tears can't stop falling....and nothing else matters, (pause) cause we're together again;

A double dealing, alcohol pleasing, dog and cock show. Who will be disenfranchised by this event?
