The Prize: What’s At Stake!

The folks at FOCO were kind enough to supply the awesome merch that sponsors this contest.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is already passing tests — he is 3-0 as a starter, hasn’t thrown an interception yet, has already lead a fourth-quarter comeback, and has had a game-winning drive outdueling once and future nemesis, Kyler Murray (scornfully known around these parts as the Ewok who stole Tua’s Heisman.) Tagovailoa the first rookie QB in NFL history to throw 5 or more total TDs in his first three starts, and do so without an interception, and win them all.

In other words, Tua doing Tua things.

So, if you are a Tua ‘stan, as I know you are, then check out this new piece of memorabilia for Tua and Dolphins’ fans.

The officially licensed, limited-edition Tua Tagovailoa bobblehead with TUA RIDING A MO’FO DOLPHIN.

If you don’t win, it’s no big deal. You can still BUY this official Tua Tagovailoa bobblehead. Just. Click. HERE.

FOCO also has other licensed, limited edition bobbleheads featuring ‘Bama players. Henry Ruggs III in his Raiders bathrobe? Jerry Jeudy being smoother than melted butter? Tua’s draft night Hawaiian suit and lei? Tua wearing that iconic No. 13 crimson jersey with the Script A in the background? Seriously, check them out. And thanks again, FOCO! I actually did buy the Tua Script A bobblehead for myself for Christmas (it’s allegedly from my kid, but she won’t know what she got me until Christmas morning). And, when it arrives, it will be placed proudly in my Gump Shrine.

The Contest: Cowardly Tigers Haiku

I don’t think I am alone by any stretch in thinking that every word that comes out of Ed Orgeron’s mouth about the indefinitely-postponed Alabama game is a lie. A falsehood. A prevarication. Takes license with the truth. Stretches the boundaries of credulity. Nutria-wrapped deceit. Mushmouthed BS.

Yes, I am an LSU ‘Rona Truther.

And for the past week the LSU Tigers — after talking a whole buncha’ s*** last season over a 5-point win for the first time in almost a decade — have rightly taken heat on social media from fans, from outside observers, and from Tide players now in the pros. No one believes the goons in Baton Rouge. Postponement only helps the Tigers, and cancellation is even better — this game is both teams’ closing case before the 2021 NSD Early Signing Period, and getting 65 dropped on you at home is no way to convince anyone that LSU is his best option to win.

So, yes. The whole thing smells. All of it.

Given that belief, as well as LSU having an historically terrible season for a defending champ, I believe in kicking a man when he’s down. So this week we’ll do just that...
