Man. I ate some quesadillas last night at TJ Mulligans. Do NOT mix that with Jack Daniels. It doesn't turn out well. Not to mention my daughter stayed up until about 2:30 last night. And I had to be at work early. Sucks.
Regardless, I'm going tonight to get all of my food and beer for tailgating on Saturday at the Liberty Bowl. I just hope it decides to warm up a lil bit - or at least not have as much wind as the past few days. I think we're just gonna do burgers this time - but they'll be marinated, of course, with my special sauce.
