Ben Tanner!

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, I know we did. We spent the majority of it out on Lake Murray drinking beer and floating around in the water. Not a bad way to spend a weekend, if you ask me. On Monday, we took Melissa’s dad, Tim, out on the lake with us. I don’t know Tim all that well, since he lives close to an hour away, so I was looking forward to getting to know him. I had no idea what I was in for.

Even not knowing Tim all that well, I already like him for two reasons. One, he shares the same love that I do for Clemson football. Two, his daughter is hot and she seems to plan on keeping me around. On top of all of this, I found out Monday that he and I have one of the same nemesises (nemesii? What the hell is the plural form of nemesis?) Ben Tanner. Ben Tanner is the local weather guy here on WIS (the local NBC affiliate.) Actually, while I enjoy picking on Ben Tanner, I harbor no true ill will towards him. Tim, on the other hand, hates him. I would not be surprised to see Tim punch Ben Tanner in the face if they ever meet.

Somehow or another, Tim found out that Ben Tanner went to the University of Georgia. Tim said, and I quote “Yeah, you have to be careful when you drive through Athens. If your windows are down someone will throw a meteorology degree into your car.” Clearly, Tim thinks that Ben Tanner is an absolute idiot. Oh yeah, another thing – Tim and I both hate UGA, although to be fair, 99% of the South Carolina population also hates UGA. It’s one of the few things that Clemson and USC fans can agree on.

All of that aside, I think Monday went well. Tim and I had a few beers together, went tubing on the lake, and just generally relaxed in the sun. I can think of worse ways to spend a day off...

Aside from that, nothing too new is happening here. I have a ton of stuff I keep promising to write about and do, but working two jobs is keeping me fairly busy. I’ll try to play catch up at some point over the weekend.

In the meantime, let me know what you’ve all been up to.

JT out.

Lucas McFadden is worse.
Welcome back, Stank Kenny. Always a pleasure.
That photo is hilarious.
Photo IS hilarious. I'll confirm it. CDP, that actually could be you if you were to shave off your eyebrows, ruin your hair with a part, and shove a piece of chew in the hollow of your left cheek. At least consider it.
Damn it, do I still look like Anthony Michael Hall from The Breakfast Club? I thought that phase was over for me!
I picked the best one I could find.
