We interrupt this blog . . .

I wonder if I can use this as a write-off?

I wonder if I can use this as a write-off?

Time to finish up some vacation time before football gets here. I’ll be back soon, but before my return I’ll likely post a few things that are scheduled to appear in the AJC’s College Football’s Preview section, which will be published Aug. 28.

We’ll be releasing details soon for the second “Sack Schultz” contest. This is when you, the novice, get to pick football games every week against me, the expert. You’ll almost certainly fail miserably, which I’m with because then I’ll get to keep all of the prizes.

Seriously, though: I’ve just become aware of the prizes in this year’s “Sack Schultz” contest and they are crazy good. Let’s just say that if you think you are going to win, you might want to pack a suitcase. And bring suntan lotion. Details to come.

Also, I’ve heard from several followers of “Weekend Predictions.” Fear not, our weekly wild ride through the weekend’s games will return the first full college football week — online Thursday Sept. 1 and in print Friday Sept. 2.

That’s it for now. I may venture onto Twitter now and then so you can reach me there at @JeffSchultzAJC.

Heading to the other coast. Haven’t decided whether to stop in Las Vegas to check out this buffet . . .

A man in a Porsche 911 stops at a stoplight and Ray Drew pulls up next to him on a scooter. Drew leans over and takes an admiring look at the inside of the Porsche and tells the driver that he has a really hot car. Well, the light turned green so the driver of the Porsche decides to show off and peels out and leaves Drew in the dust. Then, all of a sudden, he sees the scooter zip on past him. So, being a little cocky, the Porsche driver floors it again and blows past Drew on the scooter. A few seconds later, he again sees the scooter zip on past him. So now he’s a little irate as well as a little mifted that that scooter keeps passing him so he floors it until he is going over 100 mph. He thinks to himself that there would be no way that scooter could catch him now, but then looks in the rearview mirror and sees that scooter starting to catch up. He then decides to find out what that scooter really is and slams on his brakes. Then the scooter crashes into the Porsche. After the dust settled, the Porsche driver sees the Drew lying in the road and goes over to him and asks how he could go as fast as the Porsche on a little wimpy scooter… Drew replied, “I can’t really, but my suspenders were caught on your side mirror….”

Addendum to previous post: The UGA bloggers are going to be worse and worse as the Boise State opener gets closer. They believe this Dream Team is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Be prepared.

Glads to know that Weekend Predictions will be back. Jeff, can you go ahead and have a funeral for the Count? He seems to be dead, and will be sorely missed.

I especially like the plastic plant behind the chair. Nice place to dump the last, warm shot of beer/spit that accumulates at the bottom of the bottle.
Does the footstool fit into the sitting portion of the ball/chair so that you can recreate that dive over the top for the touchdown?

Can’t say I agree with your tweet about Kelly being a bust. He’s still in the league and what has happened to Lewis? Yeah Kelly wasn’t a 100+ catch TE but he has been a steady player in the league.

Aren’t you the same writer that reminded everyone time after time how Nesbitt could not play in the NFL much less QB but there he was Saturday night with the best effort on the field out of the 4 qb’s the Bills have. And no matter what happens tommorow with Nesbitt, he played QB and you were wrong. (once again)

In other words, I don’t think anyone in the SEC is asking you what you think
