But while I was engaged in existentialist musings at a wedding,
And while LeBron was busy being awesome, Texas running back Ramonce Taylor was busy showing off five pounds of marijuana to sheriff's deputies. The situation also involved a pecan farm and a one-hundred person brawl. And apparently Taylor, ignoring the five pounds of pot in his car, called the cops about this fight, then told them he had plans to return to the fight with a handgun. That was probably not a good idea.
Take it easy, Champ. Why don't you stop talking for a while?
And in other college football news, University of Georgia President Michael Adams has apparently kicked off his campaign to get himself fired, as he is campaigning to end the use of "the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" in promoting the Bulldogs-Gators game. I've always kind of liked the Cocktail Party. The idea of partying with your rivals (to some degree) before, during, and after the game is one that's pretty foreign to me as an Ohio State student. Our activities surrounding our rivalry game are generally perceived somewhat negatively.
Note: The members of the class of 2007 are on track to graduate from the Ohio State University without having been tear gassed at any point in their college careers. Just sayin'.
So I'm hoping the Georga-Florida game keeps the same name. I can understand concerns about being viewed as encouraging excessive drinking, but does changing the name really change the fact that people are going to drink too much at the game? I don't really see it happening.
