the 12th man

smokey, the mascot of the university of tennessee, is bitin' mad! he is accused of biting an alabama player after the rude bastard fell on him in warm-ups:

Crimson Tide receiver Mike McCoy fell on the 3-year-old dog during pre-game warmups after jumping for an out of bounds, near where Smokey was standing with the cheerleaders.

What the dog did next is up for some debate. Alabama coach Mike Shula says Smokey bit the player.

Smokey's owner says he didn't. As for Smokey, he only howls. [...]

The Vols travel to South Carolina on Saturday, and Smokey remains on the travel roster.

Smokey was taking it easy Wednesday. After a walk with Hudson, Smokey was curled up in his favorite recliner, maybe even dreaming about the big game.

i'm no fan of ut but i wouldn't blame smokey for biting a damn crimson tide (what kind of a mascot is that anyway) but i'm not sure he did it. the tide can be a bit whiny, like when they boo the ut coach for having turned them for cheating. when they were, in fact, cheating. nice.

just a reminder, the last time tennessee and nebraska played the hooskers whooped up on 'em 42-17. i hear smokey tried to sneak onto the huskers' team bus. i can't blame him

Hey, a dogs got to do what a dogs got to do! Now if it was us on the sidelines, we could just walk up to them and they would trip over us with no problem.. and if they accused us, Lilly could just do her "cutsie" look and I'd do the "who me???" look and all would be fine!

So... Someone is surprised that a dog reacted in self-defense after being jumped on by a gigantic Great Oppressor? All I can say is, dogs didn't land on Mike McCoy, Mike McCoy landed on US!!!!

I see the Crimson Tide name and can only think of the mediocre submarine movie starring Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington.

I personally think I, Miss Sunshade would do a lot more than a little nip if some fat ass fell on me!! Especially if I was standing with my mum, I would try to protect her too!

Shivery nibbles, (fire crackers going off...)
