UT vs UK

Great game; Tennessee dominated the 2nd half but couldn't put Kentucky away. With very little time left, UT completed a first down pass that would have finished the game, but a great hit by the UK defense caused a fumble.

The defense (UT) held at the 8 and Kentucky made the kick that sent it to overtime. Kentucky couldn't move and missed a field goal. Tennessee moved at will and scored on a 20-yard run by Hardesty (his 3rd of the game) and stretched the streak to. Maybe next year EMB [30-24]

Sports Update

High School:
Austin is done, so no update [no playoffs for them]

College:
UT got destroyed by Mississippi over the weekend [my post]

Pro:
Dallas' offense looked terrible (off-key) and they lost to Green Bay [17-7]


Tennessee let 2 players go today (Nu'Keese Richardson and Mike Edwards) for their role in the attempted armed robbery over the weekend. The third player (Janzen Jackson) is barred from team activities until more is learned. I knew the results would be like that for the first two and thought the third would be a bar until further notice, because the first 2 had to post bail to get out of jail and Janzen was released on his on recognizance (which tells me that he probably won't be charged in the situation). I hope that the police departments get to the bottom of it and if it is found out that Jackson played a larger role in this scenario, he should follow his alleged partners in crime.

UT vs Miss

UT vs UMOle Miss came to play, Tennessee looked like they took the day off.

Behind a monster day from their star running back (Dexter McCluster) the Rebels pounded the Vols 42-17 and the game wasn't even that close.

Monte's defense had no answer for the 'smallest player on the field' and it showed; no matter what McCluster did, it worked; and worked well.

Now it's time to regroup and get ready for a feisty (but bad) Vanderbilt team and hopefully bowl eligibility next week.

Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day is always celebrated on November 11th, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls.

Veteran's Day is dedicated to honor all men and women, both living and deceased, who have served in the nation's armed forces.

It is a legal federal holiday in the United States.

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th as Armistice Day to commemorate the end of World War I, which took place at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month. Congress changed the name to Veteran's Day in 1954.

To honor and recognize our Veterans, click on the American Flag and scroll down to "We Love America"

Update

Ok, been awhile since I posted; I'm back on regular shift at work (swings) and sleep a different times now :)

Good sports weekend:

College; Tennessee beat the @#% out of Memphis (and Crompton still looks like a real QB)
Pro; Dallas hung on to beat Philly in Philly and move into 1st place in the division (20-16)

Got my Wii and been playing some tennis, gotta get some more games for that thing soon and finish up on lil bit's Christmas presents (she wants a DSi).

Hopefully I'll get more in routine and get back to posting now that the shift work will be regular again.
