It's almost time, and the OBC is fiesty and restless, relentlessly swishing air tee-offs onto the links of his imagination.
We at the Dawg Blawg had little trouble talking Coach Superior into a round of digital pigskin, via EA Sports' new edition of NCAA Football for the X-Box. Saxondawg chose to play the part of Central Florida, Spurrier's first opponent. The OBC, of course, took . . .
SD: I am being serious. After all, South Carolina, that's your new team, right?
OBC: South CAROLINA? That the one near Augusta? Okay, I think you're right. Just wrappin' my mind around the new job, ya know? Any idea if I actually signed the papers?
SD: Think so, Coach. Look, you kicked off and my Golden Knights are setting up a return.
OBC: Gimme my trigger thingy. The Ol' Ball Coach is gonna throw the ball around the yard, fun it-gun it, toss n' catch...
SD: Wow, I returned the kick for a touchdown! CF 7, Gamecocks 0.
OBC: Wait a minute. The Ol' Ball Coach wasn't ready. And what kind of mascot is that fat ball of Crisco there? Needs his fanny kicked.
SD: That's not the mascot, that's our UCF head coach. O'Leary. That wiggling cellulite is rendered really well, graphically, eh? Do you think they did a good job on your stadium?
OBC: Well, they left out the big orange thing with Welcome to the Swamp across it.
SD: Focus, Coach. Columbia.
OBC: HA. ha. Smartass media scribe. Watch my razzle dazzle on your kickoff.
SD: OOO, what a hit! My guy scoops it! Dances into the endzone...
OBC: Hey, kid, I ever tell ya what FSU stands for? Free Shoe…
SD: Yeah, you told me that one. Here's your visor back, Coach. You know, about this Florida stuff, you really need to move on.
OBC: Truth is, I told ol' Foley the package I needed for comin' back. Take it or leave it, I say, if you want the ol' coach to come toss it around the yard at UF.
SD: And then, I heard Foley told you, you can't spell UF without FU. Okay, we're at 14-0 on the X-Box. Now we should get to see some Evil Genius strategy here, right?
OBC: Evil Genius strategy is to stick in Wueffel, maybe Shane. Which button does that?
SD: None. You got to use the guys that X-Box gave you.
OBC: (pinches mouth inward, looks at ceiling) See, this is what happened in DC. Owner won't let the ol' coach play his own ball. Now, Bill Gates tellin' me who I can play. Needs his fanny kicked.
SD: Here's your visor again. You gonna call a play?
OBC: HA. Ha. No, gonna call a few Bull Gators, hit the fairway.
SD: Coach--think Columbia. Like they say, Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore.
OBC: (clicking heels) There's no place like home, there's no place like home.
