The Talk Show

It was fun. Those guys are neat. The better guest starts around the 50 minute mark when Jill breaks the fourth wall and tells us how bands are booked.

These are actual quotes from Ellis Johnson on the day he was hired at Southern Miss
Nov 24 2012  •  0 comments

“As I take over this program, I’m looking for something that’s never been done before,” […] “Frankly, there’s very little left. It’s intimidating, but it’s also challenging.”

“Southern Miss is special, from the time I worked here, it has held a special place in my heart. It’s a place where I am convinced you can always be successful.”

“I want to take Southern Miss to a BCS bowl game and win it.”

“If we ever win a ball game, that first win, these are going to be difficult kids to handle – we’re going to have to get their focus back.”

My favorite Southern Miss quote
Sep 4 2012  •  0 comments

Woo-boy. Saturday was not fun. This moment was fun. This moment was also fun. As was this one… but that’s about it.

Tuesday morning our athletic director posted to Facebook my favorite quote about Southern Miss. It’s from Mickey Spagnola’s Clarion Ledger article on the Sunday morning after the upset win over Alabama in 1982. The win ended Bear Bryan’t 57-game home sinning streak, and it was Bear Bryant’s final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

“If you are going to war and if you get to pick first, choose Southern Mississippi. Always choose Southern Mississippi. No matter how hard you fight, these folks will fight harder.”

Great article on Seattle’s role in soccer

E Pluribus Sounders (Part 1): Immigrant & NASL Roots

“The history they speak of cannot be created by a league, but is instead created by the collective experience of supporters who are committed to and maintain the concept of a soccer club. The Sounders may not be the best team in the United States and have had a history filled with various starts and stops, but they’re certainly the most loved because of what they represent: the professional culmination of a sixty year love affair Seattle has had with soccer.”

Slate makes the statement about Chick-fil-A that every defector knew, but had chosen simply to look past in lieu of delicious chicken

Leave Chick-fil-A Aloooooone

The Chick-fil-A controversy has been confounding from the outset. Who eats at that chain and doesn’t know about its founder Truett Cathy’s conservatism? Has nobody walked there on a Sunday and seen the message from Cathy, explaining that the restaurant is closed because the company honors the Sabbath? Did nobody notice how Cathy got an honorary degree from Liberty University the same day that Mitt Romney did?

Tim Kreider at The New York Times nails being “busy”
Jul 2 2012  •  0 comments

Two quotes the author highlights act as an executive summary of a solid article:

“It’s not as if any of us wants to live like this; it’s something we collectively force one another to do.”

“Our frantic days are really just a hedge against emptiness.”
