Chewing glass in '09, Jermaine Phillips, and the death of various radio stars

There comes a moment in every off season when you realize that you're ready for the next season.

Mine was Friday about 6 p.m. And all I could think about was the Alabama game, and how I felt after it. And that reminded me of the Florida game, and how I felt during the middle of that thing.

And all those people who think the months after a disappointing season are the time to lessen your support, you can leave.

Because in 2009 the Bulldogs chew glass.
Jermaine Phillips is now a free agent. And on Sunday the Falcons announced that they won't renew Lawyer Malloy's contract.
With last week's resigning of Mike Leach, Texas Tech proved at least one thing: They're not as dumb as Auburn.
Georgia Tech record holder and multiple felon Kelly Campbell has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

What will the Edmonton Eskimos do without his services? Or various drug cartels, for that matter.
The song "Video Killed the Radio Star" takes on a lot deeper meaning when you work for a dying industry.

... and now I understand the problems you can see.

Yikes! 2009 isn't looking good for anyone. The company I freelance for has a contract with Sirius Satellite Radio. I know my job is in "sirius" jeopardy.

Don't worry...I'm pretty sure newspapers will come back in a major way.

How else can somebody figure out what happened prior to 10pm on the previous day?

Phip to the Falcons would help this out a little. Looks like we are going to have a good baseball team too.

If I ever want to find out what happened the previous day, I just count the number of whiskey drinks I consumed the night before (which are indicated by pen marks on my arms). I refer to this as the "late edition" as it usually takes of most of the important stuff prior to 3 am.

All of this is very clever but who will ask the questions when the newspapers go away. TV certainly not the ones.
Large cities will still have real news but the rest fo us will be without advocates I fear.
