WE are the CHAMPIONS, My Friend............

The Starkville High School Yellowjackets are the Mississippi 5A Football State Champions as of this past Saturday night. In a game dominated by defense and filled with trick plays and turnovers, the Jackets won 28-11.  The Championship Game can be viewed for the next couple of weeks on ESPN3.

My youngest son was also promoted to MKC (Chief, Machinery Technician) in the United States Coast Guard on December 1st.  DKW and I were able to be in Jacksonville (FL) for the promotion ceremony.  I will confess to getting a lump in my throat and a pounding in my chest - I was so proud.  That evening Christ and I enjoyed the championship game together in his livingroom - thanks to the internet and  I would have loved to have been on hand in Jackson for the game - but I would not have missed out on his promotion for the world.  Semper Paratus!

Just thought I'd throw this pic out.  Since I drive a Mini - thought it was funny

Miss. State (8-4) accepted a bid to meet Northwestern (9-3) in the (Jan. 1) 2013 Gator Bowl.  Once the announcement was made, the opening line has MSU favored by 2.  So it could be anyone's game.  I would like to point out though that for the 2011 Gator Bowl MSU was an early 4 point favorite against Michigan and won by 38 (52-14).  I'm just sayin'.... - ya know.  But using that (albeit - faulty) logic - MSU should win  by 19!.  GO DOGS!

Everyone have a great day!
