Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders.

The Blue Gray Tourney

I rode down to Montgomery yesterday to see it.

Between the Steele and Springville Exits there was a posse of Yamaha demon cyclists that were challenging death doing wheelies at 80 mph. I thought one of em was gonna try to squeeze between me and a transfer as I was passin.
They get off country exits and then come speedin down the ramp on the other side.
I didn't know what to do, I just kept traveling.

Had several good conversations in Montgomery and was proud to see the Furman netters struggling with the big programs.
Furman's #2 player played strong in second set against the #30 player in the nation, a Ukrainian at OkSt.
The Bama, Penn St match was pretty exciting, coming down to a tie breaker in the #1 place contest in third set.
Stopped at Full Moon BBq in Pelham on way in and had the big plate. I just wish these places would do better cornbread instead of making it so sweet in cupcake portions.
Make big pans of cornbread and serve it by the slice and make it least as good as My Grandmother Fox and Uncle Onre used to make it.

And here is my earlier report from another venue:

I was there, I saw it
http://www.bluegraytennis.com/matchpoint/matchpoint.htm

Furman's #1 player had back problems and the Okey Staters whick is pretty much a Ukrainian team, were full blast. In fact OkSt. #1 netter had defeated the top ranked seed there, the fellow from Tulsa and Spain, earlier in the year.
And I saw the Tulsa fellow lose his first set to guy from William and Mary.
At one point in the Furman match, Furman was up in the place 3 through 6 matches. If they coulda held on they woulda won the round 4-3; but it did not happen.I talked to the Okey Ukies; nice fellows.I think Sawyer Duncan was the only Furman netter to win.
