Rob Young mentioned to Andersen Cooper last night he would not question the motivations of the crooks in Louisiana that shook down BP to steer the resulting no bid contracts to their political cronies to build them useless sand berms. The scientists are wise not to do that and besides that’s what we’re for here at Slabbed. This one goes out to Nunny and Boy Bobby with a big Hat Tip to Editilla.
Friday’s music comes by way of the Huffington Post.
In a new commercial from Geico that we don’t feel at all sheepish in calling both incredibly catchy and kinda majestic, the Oracle Of Omaha dons an Axl Rose costume. (Hat tip to Time.com and Morning Money.)
If that weren’t enough, Buffett also sings — and surprisingly successfully. “We’re always true to you,” Buffett sings (apparently without the help of Auto-Tune.)

Tomorrow’s game in Jackson should be cold as heck and quite good. Those unable to attend can watch on Mississippi Public Broadcasting. Gametime is 3 PM.

It is one of those “we’re going to the Superbowl” stats with the last 2 teams to acheive 21 being the 2007 Pats and the 2o00 Broncos. Mike Triplett at the Times Picayune has an indepth story on the topic with a link to a cool graphic showing the 19 different Saints that have scored so far. Following is a Youtube embed that shows a few of the 2009 defensive touchdowns: Continue reading “Friday Football & Music: State Championship Edition”
Wayyyyy back in the day I had the pleasure of associating with a older member of the fairer sex who turned me on the the oldies (among other things ). That in turn started my life long love affair for music from the generation prior to mine.
Nowdy sent out a suggested oldies music post that will run later this weekend and in following her link I ran across another oldie but goodie that brought back some pleasant memories. Enjoy.
