Remember-the-TitansThe arrival of crisp fall air brings to mind at least two things. First, football. Specifically college football. And as with all sports, the unexpected happens. So far into week three of the college football season, surprises have come in the form of porous SEC defenses and the ACC actually winning some big games instead of the normal inter-conference pillow fights. Second, Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t look forward to bringing food and football together? So YHC, along with Maize, (potatoes and corn) attempted to pay homage to the season by bringing some surprises and attempting a MackBrowner in tribute of Remember the Titans.

  • Thanks brothers. As usual, with anything remotely useful that comes out of my mouth, it is borrowed. Rick Phillips’s book, The Masculine Mandate, unfolds the work and keep theme. Required reading for men, IMHO.

  • Agreed. Solid 3rd F, Tater. Work and keep. Good prep for the day ahead. T-claps to both you and Maize. Varied efforts and approaches. Great work.

  • “brief remarks” doesn’t begin to capture the value of Tater Tot’s comments. straight wisdom, no chaser.
