About travellinbaen

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

  1. I’ve only got about another 30 or so for the list so far, so it is not ranked, fyi. I think of something new for it periodically and make a note. So please add your reasons here and I’ll probably add them to the list at some point. If they are worthy.

    Not so bad so far, just waiting what slant you take on the next 20. Another hint is those sweaters the USC cheerleaders wear and the Chaps Texas cheerleaders wear. and don’t forget learning how to choke down a plastic cup full of bourbon with a splash of coke and hotdogs at halftime.

    I would like to give kudoos to Baen and the rest of bullDawg nation for stepping up and showing they have a pair! This is what college football is all about. When the game is hosted in Hattie I would like to host you and all your kind. Boiled shrimp, crabs, buffalo chicken dip, pulled pork, and all the beer and brown wiskey you would like to partake in, a good time will be had by all. Good luck to you this weekend against those corndog smelling coonass’s.

    “There will be no throwing balls at peoples dicks” Gretchen

    “It only takes one” RJ

    “A 100 bucks is a 100 bucks” Waldo

    “Run you big bull” many have said this on Del Norte

    “Hey, we can’t lose” Greeg

    “Plate Job” RJ

    1) Band playing Dixie

    2) Hotty Toddy

    4) Storming the field and tearing down the goalposts.

    5) Spread Eagle Faceplants on the front yard because Bama just lost to Auburn in aclose one.

    6) Hating Notre Dame

    7) The Heisman (back in the day)

    1. Dorky Penn State fan’s kitten ROAR…Sounds like the stadium is vomiting on each other!
    2. Tennessee fans singing Rocky Top…way too many damn times per game!
    3. Kneeling on the ball…1st and goal at the 1 yrd line with 1 minute left to go…GAME GOES UNDER THE TOTAL!!!!

  17. smilyj says:

    GET U SUM!

  18. Madd Dawg says:

    -when State beat Bama 6-3 in about 1980
    -the Play: where CAL beat Stanford on about 9 pitchbacks on a kickoff return and ran over the band in the end zone
    -when the hand of God reached down and blew back MSU’s FG on the last play of the game preserving the victory for Ole Miss in the early 80’s
    -the Catch Kordell Stewart to Westbrook
    -FSU’s numerous Wide Rights
    -The Four Horsemen
    -The Galloping Ghost
    -Woody Hayes
    -Bear Bryant

  19. There are some good ones here. And some terrible ones. Smiley. And a few that inspire an entirely different list altogether that I may go with later in the year. Keep ’em coming. Some of these, like the Flutie HM you won’t see until the top 20, I’ve got to save enough true classics for last.
