Well UAB certainly got their revenge, whipping Wyoming to the tune of 92-71. It was almost boring to watch, considering I'd gotten used to the Mike Anderson "Fastest Forty Minutes in Basketball" style. But the Mike Davis style was effective to get the win, even though the Blazers looked rusty and confused for a four minute stretch in the first half. Boneheaded mistakes and turnovers and a seeming inability to hit free throws erased an early six point lead to find the Blazers trailing by four, but once they settled down it was no contest. The next home game isn't 'til 12/5 (Minnesota), but I'm already looking forward to it.

It's been awhile, but I'm back. Now that Nico is back and blogging and the regular season has (mercifully) ended for the Tide, I'll have something else to do besides wonder what the hell is going on down there and crying myself to sleep at night. I'll still be doing Alabama posting over there, but look for more shallow observations about various items in the news, cursory reviews of movies I went to see, and all the other assorted non-sense you've come to expect, nay, love from me. Just to get my feet wet again:

- By naming him "Thiago," did they really think he wouldn't be a mad scientist?

- The grandmother from Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood died today.

- God bless the midwest...

- I'm headed to Bartow tonight to watch the Blazer basketball team take on the Cowboys of Wyoming in their first home game of the regular season. The Blazers are 2-2 under first year head coach Mike Davis, and look to avenge their loss Saturday to the Cowboys.
