Not really enough to make a whole post, so here are just some random thoughts for a Friday afternoon.

- Super Bowl: Yaaaaaaaaaaawn. Both the teams I wanted to see make it lost in the second round, so I could honestly care less who wins. I am almost leaning toward Pittsburgh since I'm about sick of hearing how Seattle gets no respect because they're from the northwest and no one ever sees their games. I'll pick Pittsburgh to win just cause they have a former Vol on the roster and Shuan Alexander did play for Bama, so to see him not do well is always a good thing in my book. Hopefully, we'll get some good commercials.
- I'm trying to catch a cold. Yeah, not my idea of fun either.
- I'm really getting tired of the red-headed step-child syndrome a lot of Vandy fans who call into the sports shows have. Yesterday, I kept hearing them whine about officiating and such and reminding everyone that UT has to come to Memorial Gym and they'll be ready. Seriously--we let y'all enjoy beating us in football...could you maybe, just maybe let us relish and savor the win over you guys the other night in basketball for 24 hours before you start acting like petulant children?
- I watched the first episode of Survivor: Exile Island last night. I've already found the person I'm pulling for to go far in the game: Melinda. She's from East Tennessee and I just think she's cute.
Of course, she may not want me rooting for her, since each year it seems the person I pick to root for ends up going home in the second episode. And I know it's a bit of a long shot, but hey, one of my East Tennessee readers/friends might know her or someone who knows her. (Seriously, we'd be a total match....she likes UT, I like UT....come on! It's destiny!) It'd be like one of those wacky romantic comedies with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, though I still want David Duchovny to play me....
