Backyard Brawl: Things That Made Me Want To Throw My Shoe

Oooooooooo 'By Godders', I'm back. It is time for me to rant and rave for a hot minute. I can hear it now, the sound of shoes flying through the air with the greatest of ease.

One would think after a great Thanksgiving weekend and a victory over Pitt I would forget my troubles. However, it has been a few weeks since I threw some shoes and a lot has happened in that time frame. The anger has built up and needs to be released before I lose another pair of boat shoes.

Watch out...

Pat Mcafee knows exactly what Kyle Brotzman is going through. Brotzman missed a couple key field goals in Boise's last game and was subsequently threatened and had his property vandalized. The fact that "fans" can go this far is absolutely absurd to me. I would never do this and I get pretty fired up after a WVU loss. Sure, we all want to win, but it is just a football game being played by young lads. If you make it that personal, you need to seriously re-evaluate your life. Those type of fans make Roberto De Niro in the "The Fan" look like a cub scout.

Why do some gas stations slow down the pumps so early when you prepay for gas? I can basically stop the pump at the amount I want and I'm not even a computer. If I pay $20 for gas slow the damn pump down at $19.90 not 19.00. That is an extra 40 seconds of my life that I will never get back. It is cold outside and I don't want to be outside any longer than necessary. I know I could just pay with a card, but I like Slurpee's, so I go inside and pay with cash.

Why in the hell was there a representative from Notre Dame at the TCU press conference? Sure, both universities love God, but they are not a football member of the Big East and this move was obviously a football centric decision. Get them the hell away from anything that involves football because Notre Dame obviously wants no part of football membership. I really despise Notre Dame and will hate them even more if UConn beats USF and we end up in Charlotte again because ND takes our bid to the Champs Sports Bowl. Get in or get out.

I'm not sure if the folks up in South Bend heard this, but God said they should stop living in the past and work out a deal to join the Big East in football. Also, he is a Mountaineer fan get over it.

There are a lot of rumors floating around about the future of our head coaching position. I have heard some very interesting information. However, you need to pay me to hear it. Just send a check to "5th Year Senior, 69 I'm Full of Shit Ave. Lameassery, WV 25301."

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Everywhere you go people look mean and are in a hurry to find the perfect present for their loved ones. People shoot you dirty looks, tap their feet and take extremely deep breaths when you ask a sales associate a couple questions about a new TV. Yet again, the holiday spirit is alive and well in the bah humbuggers!

I really hope Truck and Jennings learned their lesson after the fiasco at practice last week. Huggs isn't hard on you for his health, the man wants to win. Huggs has almost 700 victories under his belt, he knows what it takes to get the job done. Listen to him. Let your play do the talking because we need both you to be successful this season. It appears that they have because at least Truck will be playing tonight against American.
