Can I call you Kenny?
Now, I know that Saturday afternoon was a pretty embarrassing time to be a fan of the University of Tennessee, but for you to jump ship on the team that you've allegedly "been a big fan of" for so long was just shameful. Maybe you've forgotten the events of about nine years ago when you had a little regional hit called "Touchdown Tenneessee" that honored the legacy of John Ward, the voice of the Vols. (On a side note, I'm pretty much doubting anyone will be recording such a song for Bob Kesling when he retires...it'll be pretty much a few rousing choruses of "Ding Dong, Kesling's Gone."). Maybe the intervening years of the rumors about your sexuality and that three-month marriage to the girl from Jerry McGuire have rattled your brain or maybe your hat is just too tight.
I don't know what it could be, but to watch you abandon the Vols on national television was a disgrace. So, Tim Teabow and some of the Florida players have been to a few show and danced on stage with you...if you were a true Vol fan, you'd have had them escorted out by security and broke into a few dozen chorues of Rocky Top and maybe that little "Touchdown Tennessee" song you were championing so much a few years ago. But no, instead you turn on the Vols and pledge some loyalty to Florida.
So, Kenny...I hate to tell you this, but I'm done with you. If I had any of your CDs, I'd have burned them. I won't be buying a ticket to a concert, I won't buy any of your CDs, I won't even download any of yours song off iTunes. Heck, I'd not even illegally download any of your music using those file sharing services you musicians hate so much. If I hear one of your songs on the radio, I'll switch off and if (heaven forbid) I see one of your videos on CMT flipping past, I'll keep on going.
Back where I come from, we're loyal to our team through good and bad. I'm guessing you don't know how forever feels and that your tractor is too sexy for the Vols.
