Pork and Cabbage, Hoppin John, Cornmeal Hoecakes, Baked Apples and a Little College Football:

Mornin guys. How are ya today?

The recipes we’re sharin today, come from Lucky’s cookbook, “Cedar Creek Game Cookbook.” It was written by Sam Goolsby, from Monticello, Georgia…of all places.

Bein a Florida Gator fan, it’s hard to like anybody from the State Of Georgia…this time of the year anyway! LOL!

I will admit though, that them dern Dogs are lookin good!

Speakin of Fla-Ga., how bout a few laughs at our favorite college football teams expense?

I’ll start off with one from the late Lewis Grizzard, a graduate from The University of Ga., and an avid… “Gator Hator.” (probably how Grizzard spelled it…being a Ga. grad)

“What do ya get when ya cross a University of Florida graduate…with a pig?”

Nothin, cause there’s some things a pig just won’t do!”

Ohio State’s Urban Meyer on one of his players…
“He doesn’t know the meaning of the word fear. In fact, I just saw his grades and he doesn’t know the meaning of a lot of words.”

Q: What does the average Texas A&M player get on his S.A.T.?
A: Drool.

Q: If you see a University of Miami fan on a bike, why should you not swerve to hit him?
A: It could be your bike.

This one for my good buddy, Brian…

The Seven Dwarfs were marching through the forest one day they fell in a deep, dark ravine. Snow White, who was following along, peered over the edge of the steep chasm and called out to the fallen dwarfs. From the depths of the dark hole a voice returned, the Notre Dame football team is a legitimate National Championship contender.”
Snow White thought to herself, “Thank God… at least Dopey’s survived!”

A University of Tennessee fan was out hunting one day when he came across a beautiful woman nude.
“Are you game he asked?”
When she replied, “Yes…”
He shot her.

Why did the South Carolina football player steal a police car?
He saw “911″ on the side and thought it was a Porsche.

How can you tell an FSU fan?
They can play their fight song under their armpit!

For my good friends, Bill and Sandy, in Mobile…

A guy is in a bar with his dog, watching the Alabama vs. Florida game. The Gators surprisingly manage to get a field goal and the dog barks repeatedly. The bartender looks at the dog in awe. After a while the Gators score a touchdown and the dog does flips and dances across the bar. Then, the bartender looks at the guy and says, “Man, that’s amazing. What does your dog do when Florida beats Alabama?” The guy replied, “I dunno, I’ve only had him 3 years.”

Q: Why do the University of Michigan football players like smart women?
A: Opposites attract.

The USC (Southern Cal) football team was placed in a remedial English class. The professor asked the class, “Does anyone know what comes after a sentence?”
All of the players raised their hands and shouted… “The appeal!

One day, an FSU player and a Tennessee player were at a bar.
The Tennessee player asked the FSU player what FSU meant. The FSU player replied, “Florida Stomped Us.” Then he asked the Tennessee player what UT meant.
The UT player told him, “Us Too.” (I love it!! Lol.)

A man fell in love with the girl of his dreams. They were perfect for each other, except for one minor problem: She was a South Carolina Gamecocks fan and he was a, Alabama fan. He decided to make the ultimate sacrifice and become a Gamecocks fan.
He went to the doctor and asked if there was an easy way to do this. The doctor replied, “Yes, it’s a very simple procedure. What we do is go in and remove half your brain. When you wake up, you will be a Gamecocks fan.”
The man agrees, and the next week goes into surgery. After he wakes up the doctor comes up to him concerned. “Sir, I apologize, but there was a mix-up with the scalpel. Instead of removing half your brain we removed 3/4 of it. How do you feel?”
The man sat up, looked around, and hollered, “GO Ole Miss!”

That’s it for today…I’m getting hungry.

You guys have a great day, and God Bless.

Please, “Keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart.”
