I really had planned to blog a couple of days ago, but the weekend football results kinda bummed me out. On Saturday, SHS lost the 5A Championship game to Picayune High 38-21. Congratulations to the Maroon Tide, but I fully expect my Jackets to be back next year.
On Sunday, My Raiders got blew out by a Miami Dolphins team that I fully expected them to beat. Now they are tied with the Denver Broncos (at 7-5) for first in the AFC West, and with the 4 games they have left, in real danger of not making the playoffs. It starts this weekend when they travel to undefeated (12-0) Green Bay. YIKES!!!
MSU found out that they will be playing in the Music City Bowl (on December 30th) in Nashville against Wake Forest out of the ACC. GO DOGS! That's the good news. While there is no (official) bad news yet - the rumor-mill is stating that Coach Dan Mullen will most likely be the next football coach at Penn State. As much as I'd hate to see him go, I'd wish him well. He's a very nice guy.
Well, my Christmas shopping is done and except for 2 small gifts which came in the mail recently, everything is wrapped.
On Saturday, December 10th, I will be putting my Santa suit on and be playing Santa for 3 or 4 hours at the Emerson Family Learning Center in Starkville.
Everyone have a great day!
