It's been a hell of a weekend, Gator Nation. While I know there is still a lot of power issues, and a ton of cleanup, the stress of the last week or so for both those of you in the line of fire, and people like me worrying about family and friends, has been just as impactful. I, for one, am ready for a release. That first week game was enough to make a preacher curse and drink, and I'm as unhappy as anyone about the state of the program, our coach, our AD, our play (or lack thereof). But I'm making a choice - I'm choosing to be excited for the runup, for the pregame pomp and circumstance, for the tailgating, the look-alike thread...all of it. With a weekend of perspective, I'm excited to be a Gator! When the first kickoff is in the air, and the game is played...it will be what it is. I might be pissed off, angry, disgusted, and calling for heads. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, who knows. But up to that kickoff, I am going to be JACKED about home opener week, against a hated rival, as if we are #1 in the nation and expecting an annihalation of these gap-toothed, plunger-ramming, sister-humping hillbillies! Please don't make this a "pumper vs dumpers" thread. Join me in a week of positivity - we deserve it...we can all go back to our regular programming once the ball is in the air. Go Gators!
