SEC fans show lots of similarities

Published 10:20pm Thursday, September 12, 2013

I ran across this story the other day that was tryin’ to show there is some camaraderie among fans in the SEC.

There were three construction workers at a job site. One wuz an Alabama fan, one an LSU fan and one a Florida fan.

The Florida fan opened his lunch box and had a ham and cheese sandwich. “Ham and cheese again! If I get ham and cheese again for lunch, I’m going to jump off this building.”

The LSU fan opened his lunch box and saw he had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. “Agh! If I peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch one more time, I’ll jump off this building.”

The Alabama fan then opened his lunch box and saw he had a turkey sandwich with tomato and lettuce. “This again! I can’t take it. If I get another turkey sandwich for lunch tomorrow, I’ll jump off this building.”

The next day the three men came to work and were up on the 10th floor when they sat down to eat lunch.

The Florida fan opened his lunch box and saw he had ham and cheese again and jumped to his death.

The LSU fan opened his lunch box and saw he had more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and jumped to his death.

The Alabama fan saw the two men jump, opened his lunch box and saw it had another turkey sandwich and followed his co-workers by jumping to his death.

At a joint funeral, the wives were together, crying and trying to console each other.

The wife of the Florida fan said, “If I had known he didn’t want ham and cheese anymore, I would have given him something else.”

The wife of the LSU fan said, “I didn’t know how much he hated peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.”

The wife of the Alabama fan said, “Hey, don’t look at me. He made his own lunch.”

They should have called John Suitor at Giovanni’s Pizza.

Ennywho, last week I rebounded and went 15-3 to bring the season mark to 28-12. Here we goes with week number three.

Amanda-Clearcreek at Ironton: They may be the Aces, but I thinks Ironton will hold the trump card. Ironton 22, Amanda-Clearcreek 17.

Lucasville Valley at Coal Grove: The Hornets has been so close and this one will be close again. I is tempted to make this the upset special. Lucasville 27, Coal Grove 24.

Chesapeake at Symmes Valley: This is the third straight year the Panthers has to go to the Vikings’ field fer this game. The last two trips were wins. Make that three. Chesapeake 24, Symmes Valley 18.

Boyd County at South Point: This is one time when a dog gits the better of a lion. South Point 21, Boyd County 14.

Fairland at Gallipolis: The Dragons can’t help but playin’ in games that feature plenty of offense. Gallipolis 34, Fairland 32.

Sciotoville East at Green: In the first of two meetings between these teams this year, go with the young Bobcats. Green 22, East 20.
