Tags: AU, Auburn, Hank Williams Sr, South Carolina
Mississippi State and Texas A&M live to dream another day… South Carolina and Auburn call it a season. The SEC Tournament has put one day in the rearview mirror and the league’s hoops showcase — can we call it a showcase this year? — tips off in full today. Good luck to the eight teams hitting the hardwood today and tonight.
Getting down to business, today’s thought of the day actually has an Auburn tie, at least for yours truly. Back in my college days a girl I’d dated in high school wound up attending college on the Plains. For those who don’t know it, they have quite a nice little nightlife at AU. And more than once I received an alcohol-induced late night phone call asking me to play a particular song for her over the phone line. This was back before you could just download a song and play it on your phone, of course.
What her connection to the requested song was, I can’t remember. And why I first purchased a CD of Hank Williams Sr.’s greatest hits while I was in college, well, I can’t remember that, either. (Lord knows all my taste in music wasn’t so good in those days or I wouldn’t have an “Snow” CD buried in a box somewhere. I licky boom-boom down, indeed.)
But when this one popped up on the MrSEC.com iPod this morning, it took me back to those happy days. Good memories.
“Dress in style, go hog wild, me oh my oh.”
