OMG Saturday of the Century!!!!1!

As you are all no doubt aware, since none of you have to my knowledge been hiding under A GODDAMN ROCK for the last week or so, this upcoming Saturday features like 7 different games pitting Top 25 teams against each other, the most since 1993, apparently. And other intriguing matchups -- like the Buckeyes -- will come to the fore, as well. For this momentous day, Evan and I are working on the logistics of a (*gasp*) THREE-TELEVISION SET-UP in his apartment, so as to miss out on as little of the hot college football action as possible. So, in an effort to lay out to y'all the ridiculous cornucopia of goodness, as well as attempt to coordinate the coverage we will be striving for, here's the schedule we'll hopefully be looking at:


11:30-11:45 range -- I show up at Evan's. Drinking commences.

12:00 -- Triple-TV action in full effect. The games:
  • ESPN - Iowa State at Iowa
  • ESPN2 - BYU at Boston College (earlier in the week, the Droppa was supposed to be carrying Michigan State at Pittsburgh - now that game has been relegated to regional ESPNPlus and is likely not available to us. Sigh.)
  • CBS/ESPNPlus - Cincinnati at Ohio State

3:30-ish -- Chipotle break.

3:40-7:30 or so -- More college football than you could shake a stick at:
  • ABC - Oklahoma at Oregon OR Miami (FL) at Louisville (with us most likely getting the latter)
  • NBC - Michigan at No-trah Dame
  • CBS - LSU at Auburn
  • OLN - Texas Tech at TCU (5:30 kickoff)

7:30-ish-'til-God-know's-when -- And lastly, the night games (an audible may be called here, moving us to a sports bar or something. You never know.):
  • TBS - Arizona State at Colorado (sure seems like a stinker now - 7:00)
  • ESPN - Clemson at Florida State (7:45)
  • ESPN2 - crappy games (Rice at Texas, Army at Texas A&M) (6:00, 9:00)
  • CBS - Florida at Tennessee (8:00)
  • ABC - Nebraska at USC (8:00)

Zowie. Stupidly good games, all, hopefully. I suggest that we all get plenty of fluids and get a good night's sleep on Friday, so as not to have a repeat of September 2, when all you 'mos were crashed and burnt by 7:00 p.m. As always: huzzah.

I think my lady would refer to that schedule as dreadfully "too much football." That said, Break of Dawn asks "why can't every Saturday be like this coming Saturday?"

If you had been downing the pink drink continuously for 4 hours instead of going to the game, you would have crashed too. As long as I stick to good 'ol barley and hops this Saturday I should be awake, vibrant, and pantsless well into the wee hours.

Hey Y'all...Damn you all for having so much fun drinking da pink, eating chipotle burritos...NOT BOWLS!, and watching football pantsless without me. you're killing me. Don't forget to keep tabs on the LA Tech Bulldogs as they fight their way through Nichols State. Have any of you ever heard of Nichols State?...I didn't think so...GO BUCKS. By the way for those of you who want that extra boost of energy to last the evening..start the night with a shot of Cuervo. Always hot, always smooth...blagahhhh heedly heedly heedly.

Just to clarify, as Mrs Jackfu, I also think that this is too much football. I just consider this a trade for a chick flick or a day of shopping.

That doesn't sound like a terribly fair trade as I'm sure Jack Fu is a fan of the chick flicks.

BoD - I agree, but after much contemplation I think I'm still willing to make the trade. I will trade a day of watching football with Jackson for one day of Jack with Kristin.

Mrs. JackFu - some fun ideas for how to spend your day with Jack:

- Putting up dry wall
- Creating budgets so you can acquire more shoes
- Design a line of costumes for your cats
- Watch paint dry
- Shop for belts
- Plan another wedding, just for fun

So many options! Make sure to try 'em all!

I do need more shoes...

And the cats won't wear clothes. I just can't get their arms in the dresses.

That's a shame. I think they'd look adorable! But maybe you could design some fun capris! Or maybe some functional yet stylish blouses? Either way you'll need to ACCESSORIZE!!!

OMGkewtz0rz!

And I agree with Cave:

Mr and Mrs Fu, if you take up one of Torg's recommendations and decide to plan a wedding, perhaps you can plan mine. I've been engaged for two years now with nothing solid to show for it. Maybe I HAVE been watching to much football.
