The MAD Hat Rant

There isn't any question that majority of football fans will get riled up before, during, and after the game. Seeing their team give everything they have withing the white boundary lines. However there are moments after the game that will leave some guessing. Leave some wonder what just happen. That moment is usually the Post Game Press Conference with the head coach. Down here there isn't a shortage of sound bites ready to roll. Down here we have LSU's Les Miles aka "The MAD Hatter".

The coach who has garnered a reputation of calling a Fake FG against South Carolina. Going 5 for 5 on 4th Down vs Florida. Doing a another Fake FG against hated Alabama. Alright the one against BAMA didn't work but you get the idea. There are unique thoughts that flow under the White Hat of Miles. You can only wonder what will he do or say next. But whatever you do don't question the effort of any of his players. Last Saturday was the result and it gave the college football one of the greatest rants since the famous, "Have A Great Day" speech.

Hey when you win 10 games a year on average, you can say whatever you want. Just be careful with the FCC.

Shadow In Time

Monday. The start to another week of roaming for stories that would somehow make the cut to fill slots in another newscast. Yeah the ideas look good on paper, most everything does. But when things don't go as plan what do you do?

Call the desk? Tell them that we may need to go to plan B. Just one problem, plan B is falling by the waist side. (sigh)

Do we just sit and wait at this one? Maybe, just maybe things will fall our way. Someone will come out and give us something totally unexpected. Something that will catch everyone's attention leaving the producers salivating in the afternoon meeting that they will start a UFC Battle Royal to see who will have it in their show first. Sadly that's usually not the case.

Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and let the cards fall where they may. It's a nice day, not too warm perfect for this time of year in South LA. Why else would photojournalist extraordinaire Chris Sasser snap this cool picture. That plus it's also a short a week. Just pass the time somehow, did you know?
