Doctor Who ROCKS!!!

OK!  How odd - you must be thinking - its football season and he's not going there first!  Well, I'll agree that it is different and I will get there, but if the new season of Doctor Who lives up to the promise presented in this past Saturday's episode - its going to be really special.  "Asylum of the Daleks" not only had every incarnation of the Daleks (from the past 50 years) and some tear-jerky moments with Amy and Rory (and the Doc)  but there was a level of excitement and fun I haven't felt since (dare I say it - could be sacrilege) - here goes - the Tom Baker era.  Woo Hoo!  And the next episode (as you can see) is "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship".  Let the FUN continue. I  know that Amy and Rory will be departing as companions sometime this season, and its been hinted that Matt Smith will be departing after either this season or the 50th anniversary season in 2013.  The BBC website has been asking for suggestions as to who should next play the Doctor and been hinting that it may even be a (gasp!) woman.    Along those lines I had a couple of suggestions to throw in.  One being, Hannah Spearritt, who I loved in the show "Primeval" (and also had a part in "Seed of Chucky") and  - to keep it in the Who family -Georgia Moffett.  Ms. Moffett, in addition to having played the Doctor's daughter (during the David Tennant era), is married (as of 12/31/11) to the same Mr. Tennant.  AND (if that wasn't enough) is the daughter of  fifth Time Lord Peter Davidson.  (WOW!)  So, if the Doctor does go transgender - who would you like to see in the role?
OK - FOOTBALL.  SHS got its first win of the year by beating Tupelo 28-0.  Always tough West Point comes to town next week.
Miss. State kicked off its 2012 season with a 56-9 route of Jackson State.  Tough Auburn comes to town next week and is the featured SEC game of the week.  It kicks off at 11 AM local time.  The line thus far favors MSU by 3.  I hope they have it right.
The Raiders kick off their 2012 NFL season on Monday (10th) as the second game of an ESPN double-header.  They are favored by 1 right now.
That'll wrap it up for now.
Everyone have a great day!
