The Two-th

Way back in 2012 my starting goal post count was one a week, which got downgraded to one a month-ish when I started the PhD program.

Since August lasted about 90 days this semester, I’m not too far off my target– unlike my LSU Tigers who were 4th and inches from the goal line, got an offsides penalty, missed the field goal and lost the game yesterday.


This isn’t yesterday’s ballgame in Orlando, but the outcome is the same. Zero points for LSU.

For want of a nail… the war was lost.

It’s the little things.

Attention to detail.


It’s Nick Saban’s “process.”

It’s why swimmers shave their bodies and outdoor track meets use anemometers.

But . . . but… whatever happened to the guy with the rocks and the jar and the sand?


What about that?

I’ll let you know when I get it figured out.

Or you can let me know.
