Becoming an SEC Athletic Director

“It’s kind of like going into a Chick-fil-A.”

Georgia! There’s a lot of “you’ve got to be passionate about it to be successful” boilerplate but it’s a good read.

College Football is Awesome

Craigslist is awesome too.

“Hardly used aircraft towed banner. Built durable.”

Most Ridiculous Headline of the Day

Is it “TV Weatherman Brett Cummins Wakes in Hot Tub With Naked Dead Man?”

or

“Seemingly drunk Swedish Moose found stuck in tree?”

You be the judge…

GOP Debate Sauce

Super depressed no one asked about SEC expansion. Also, shorter Brian Williams to Ron Paul: “Do you REALLY believe that?” Yes, he does.

Unpublished 9/11 Ground Zero Photos

““I’d been standing directly beneath the north tower when it collapsed. That I survived seems almost miraculous. I was inside that massive cloud of smoke and dust, suffocating and blinded. I kept moving and eventually saw light emanating in the distance.”

I remember how shocking it was watching the towers fall on television in the school library (this will be my only “durr hurr where I was on 9/11” mention) and can only imagine how mentally and emotionally crippling it would have been to be standing right there. In one of the photos Nachtwey mentions how the firefighters “clicked into a kind of professional default and did what they knew how to do.” That he was able to take such well composed and memorable photographs at the scene indicates that he has a “professional default” too, and that it’s pretty darned good.
