So we had just finished listening to a nice Q & A by Coach Miles and his wife. My friends call me an avid crazed Red Sox fan. I call myself a baseball die hard....either way I got a dose of my own medicine watching these whacked LSU football fans who were women at this clinic. I got in the spirit of it all and thought I should video this thing they're calling a Victory March to the LSU Stadium. I'll just let you watch, listen and judge. Oh yah...I couldn't do this and not have a cameo of myself...so watch and wait.

Friday morning Kim picks me up from home and we head out to Baton Rouge....leaving one capital of a state to go to another...ALL for the love of Football. (I was going for the beer).
We laugh and giggle all the way there and barely made it in time to register and get our bags, do a little shopping at their set up gift shops...then we climbed the bleachers...by the way it was held in the Pete Marovich Stadium. Apparently Pistol Pete went to LSU...who knew? a basketball fan I have not gotten sold on yet.
We listen to a few coaches ramble on about football and I will have to say that I was abit disappointed that the classes were NOT really Football 101 as described. I think they were more on the Jr. level of college. HELL...I need definitions of what a cornerback does....and a fullback?? I mean why do they even use "back" at the end of their names? I mean in baseball, at least they USE bases for 1st Baseman....and pitchers "pitch", catchers "catch"...so what does a fullback do?? back the full?? are they the ones with the fullest backs?? Anyway...I digress....they had some attendees participation IF you're ticket number got pulled....I was crossing my fingers I got to stay seated. Before the rest of it...it was time to Tailgate and TAILGATE they did. We had jambalaya, pizza, shrimp and pasta, cookies, wrapped chicken in bacon...and samples of beer...but I drank water. I figured the beer could wait till later.
Back inside we got to have the Q&A with Les Miles and his wife. My camera sucked inside cos of the lighting. This year Coach Miles had to kick a member off the team due to inappropriate behavior in his personal life....it had really made the news and was quite the news around town...now this member was a louisiana boy too. But Coach Miles wanted to make a statement...this was after their winning the 2008 BCS National Championship....so he kicked him off the team and made a statement to all those players and fans. Les Miles was not going to cater to ANY player no matter WHO you were. No matter if you were a STAR player.
But you didn't come to this blog to read about football did you? NAWWWWWWWW You came to hear about how Tex fared in the whole football clinic...well let me tell you...I think Les Miles just got a new fan of LSU football...not that I didn't already like them...but he impressed me with his ethics.
Next post I will begin with the video of what they call the Victory Walk...some pics and the video of running onto the field through the chute. I know my ex boyfriend will cream in his pants when he finds out. He'd dress in drag if coulda went to the camp himself.

Speaking of Morneau, JD brought him to tie up the game at one point...the game which has just went into the 11th inning. An ALL STAR Game going into Extra Innings?? Get OVER Already.
And of course we have to include Tito and his adopted son, Justin...er I mean Dustin. I swear Yahoo Sports Sucks in identifying players. In almost all the pics with Dustin, they called him Justin. FreakWADS.

Back to the purpose of the blog today.
Jere's mom writes and has published several other books but this is the first venture of Jere's and with his mom, co-writing "Dirty Water".
It's got all my favorite elements in it: Crime, Police, Mystery, Baseball, Boston, Fenway & The Red Sox. One surprise element that I found to be a grand slam was that an anonymous blogger and his connections to be a key factor in the entire storyline. "Dirty Water" allows fans to feel a part of the inner circle of the clubhouse and the players lives, while reliving the championship of 2007, throughout the twists and turns of this riddle-laden murder mystery. Of course, I smiled a smile big as Texas when I saw that Jere had used my email name as a blogger post. I'd call this a ALC Pennant Winner. It's a definite read for those who love baseball and mystery.

I would post a broom but I figured I'd just soak the Wins and Runs up with my mop.

and they WIN. SO I'm forced to watch baseball through the SG board and GameDay. As long as they win...I'm game...but so help me first time they lose....I'm back.
oh who am I KIDDING?? I don't even have Xtra Innings. Oh and those Thighs? In honor of Tek making the All Star team....whether I think he deserves to be on it or not......He's Got THIGHS! and that itself is worth watching the All Star game to me.
