Do what you gotta do... iPhone, iPad, satellite hook-up in the party bus, FIND the TV at the reception (there is one somewhere no matter what people say)...

2010 Opener at the (new) Big House: 10 am ceremony, take 15 min to work the crowd - make sure presence is known, 1 hr drive back to the Big House, catch kick-off through end of 3rd, 1 hr drive back to reception, beat the wedding party, txt to confirm victory, food/booze/good times.

College football season. Lego :pimp: :pimp: :pimp:

I have a wedding the day Michigan plays Minnesota, which is a game that you could miss, but I won't. I'll make the reception, that should be good enough.

Arkansas shall beat both Bama and LSU @ home. ::wink:

We are prone to drop one though, that South Carolina could get us, but we've had their number the past couple of years. Offense will not skip a beat without Bobby.

Ohio State .. Urban Renewal :smokin

Herbie has Jake Matthews over Luke Joeckel on his All-Herbie team? That's gotta be a mistake...

Here are some decent wallpapers: http://dylanphotog.imgur.com/ I just wish there were dates under the opponents. I guess that can be fixed rather easily, though.
