The Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide lock horns tonight in order to crown college football’s national champion. Forget what the University Of Central Florida Knighs say. Tonight’s winner will be the recognized champion. It’s a shame that both teams will come from the SEC. You can basically pencil in Alabama will vie for the chip each year as long as they have no more than one loss. Georgia is the SEC champs. They beat Auburn who beat Alabama.
However, Georgia has not been in the Bowl Championship Series (“BCS”) since its inception. Alabama is more than “big game” ready. Georgia has yet to prove it. Having all those hosses in the stable and consistently watching ‘Bama year in and year out vie for the chip is what got former coach Mark Richt fired. Nonetheless, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is still ridin’ for the dawgs:
Woo! Who wouldn’t be excited about football in the state of Georgia especially when my daughter-in-law is a star on the track and field team at UGA … I called Jim Harbaugh … I said Jim you guys aren’t in the playoffs … can I jump over to Georgia for the weekend? He said hell yeah! So here I am. Jake Fromm … Roquan Smith you oughta be a pro wrestler are you kidding me?
… I love Julio Jones but come on. Julio’s gonna be in L.A. kicking the Rams ass while you guys are gonna be driving down to Georgia to Alabama’s ass.
The former pro wrestling great hales from Memphis, TN. Flair got is start at the University of Minnesota on a football scholarship. There he played with Greg Gagne, son was the legendary Verne Gagne who ended up training Flair as a pro wrestler. Flair is arguably the greatest professional wrestler in history. He wrestled for a few organizations but the Shock Exchange discovered with Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling. The greatest book on Flair, Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead, memorialized The Nature Boy:
The most despised, dastardly performers were Gene and Ole Anderson (The Minnesota Wrecking Crew) and “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. The Andersons were cold, calculating, unfeeling assassins … They were not in it for the sport; they were in it inflict pain. And Flair was always pulling victory from the jaws of defeat. It was bad enough that he always won, but he had to tell you about it. He bragged about his long flowing blond hair, his expensive robes, his beautiful girlfriend (“Baby Doll”), and generally how much better he was living compared to you.
Flair knows a champion when he sees one. The Dawgs will have a tall order in challenging Alabama. The Shock Exchange can’t call …. otherwise he’d spoil it.
On Trump And The Global Economy
Trump And The Global Economy Town Hall took place October 24th in Fort Greene. It Featured Professor Lance Brofman, Coconut Rob (Coconut Rob Smoothies), Wuyi Jacobs (AfroBeats Radio) and Ralph Baker, author of Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead.
The event was well-received by the community. We parsed through President Trump’s proposed tax plan and [i] how it was pure economic folly and [ii] high net worth individuals could potentially game the system by shifting income around. Apparently, Kansas Coach Bill Self did this when the state of Kansas cut taxes in the past. We discussed the pros and cons of technology on workers and the economy. How will the economy and country prosper under Trump’s leadership vis-a-vis Obama? What’s behind the verbal sparring with black athletes, ESPN’s Jemele Hill and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un?
