I'm gonna steal some stuff from a local radio show here in town and start out my Mondays from here on out with something called "Cheers and Jeers from the weekend that was."
Cheers to Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters for not only a great performance at the Grammys, but also for taking their third Grammy for best Rock album; a feat that has never been done by any other band before them. Think about all the great rock acts of all time, then think about the fact that none of them have ever won the award three times. Amazing.
Cheers to the Alabama basketball players that got significant playing time for the first time this season. No, you didn't win, but in the first half you played your guts out, and that was fun to see.
Jeers to Mark Gottfried and his inability to devise a gameplan, or a backup plan (for when another All-American goes down), that could give you any kind of advantage against an SEC opponent. You had a shot to take a lead into the locker room at Kentucky, and couldn't figure out a way to get the team motivated to score or make a stop.
Jeers to Kanye West for his long ass Grammy thank you speech. He knows the show is live on television, and he knows that he's only allotted a certain amount of time to talk, so it was rude on his part to tell them to stop playing the music to signal when it's time for him to cut his speech.
Cheers to Vince Gill who, after winning best Country album (I believe), told the crowd that he just had an award given to him by a Beatle (Ringo Starr), and went on to ask Kanye if he had that happen to him yet. Good poking fun at the guy whose ego is WAAAAY too big.
Cheers to the rumor that Jimmy Buffett may be playing the day before A-Day. I'm definitely down with the Parrot-heads invading T-town, just so long as they don't make it where I can't attend. That'd make for one helluva weekend.
Cheers to Rivals naming Mark Barron an impact freshman in this year's recruiting class. He'll be a starter this season, and will be a beast for other teams to deal with.
Jeers to Kansas St coach Ron Prince who, after a mediocre 5-7 season, mortgaged everything on this year, and signed 19 junior college kids in a 26 man recruiting class. He may look like a genius after this season...but if he's not in the big 12 title picture, his job security may be in trouble.
Cheers to the idea that maybe App St can pull another shocker in the season opener this year - in Baton Rouge. :-)
Jeers to UCLA losing at a very mediocre Washington team. Is Memphis really the best team in the country this year? Seriously? I know the Pac-10 is tough, but win the games you're supposed to, and if you lose a tough one to a top 20 team, then that's fine. Don't beat Wash State on the road, then turn around and lose at Washington. That's just pathetic.
Jeers to the Alabama women's basketball team, who suffered their worst loss of the season last night - 92-47. At home. Time for a new women's coach as well, it would appear.

No, Memphis is not the best team in the country this year. Kansas is.
