Every picture tells a story.
I like the Pirates Down East. Yep, sure do. I do not share a Wolven disgust for where those Purple and Gold peeps mark their scent trails. I pull for ’em every chance affordable…football, baseball, pig pickin’, oyster shuckin’, striper catchin’, COWGIRL boot wearin…name it.
Back in the playing days, you could say that we (Pack) absolutely owned their ball clubs. I’m sure that had something to do with the friendly way we, Pack players, cavorted with their kind. And we most certainly did.
Anyway, who cares about that crap, right? State and the Pirates square off once again in the cozy, confines of Dowdy-Ficklen. The taste of 2010 is still palpable on the tongues of both fan bases, no? (Did you know that TOB didn’t get his team buses into Greenville til 7:00 PM that Friday night? Unusual.)
One game into the season, with both teams coming off from dominating wins at the expense of scholarship handicapped foes, I have no clue for the outcome. Sure, I know that both clubs will attempt to “outspeeddrill” the respective D’s, but who exerts the will in the trenches decides this one.
Ahww…the lead. The picture that tells the story. Well that, right there, is one Ulmo Shannon “Sonny” Randle, Jr.
It’s only Tuesday.
