Yes, I am taking liberties with one of my favorite Jimmy Buffett songs. As a matter of fact, after the firing this past week, I’m dedicating this weather forecast to Jimmy and references to his music. A great stress and frustration has been lifted from the collective shoulders of Tiger Nation and now we can all enjoy the rest of the season with the calmness and whimsy of the Caribbean.
TB, enjoy yourself wasting away in Margaritaville, er Panama City, or a Beach House on the Moon, I don’t care where. I just hope you stay Incommunicado (that still goes for Cullen’s mouth as well). You went to your Bank of Bad Habits one to many times. Fins were to the left, fins were to the right, and you and Spence were the targets in town.
As you travel in and prepare for some Boat Drinks, beer, whiskey, or whatever makes you God’s Own Drunk, watch out for Barefoot Children in the Rain. Showers should be moving out of the area overnight but if the system stalls at all a few lingering one may be around. Expect them for those coming from North Carolina Friday evening and early Saturday.
Highs will be in the upper 60′s and depending on cloud cover, may not get there until late in the afternoon, ala post game. Breezes should be out of the west, northwest at 5-10, so be sure to have sleeves if you are in the upper decks or the shade of the west end zone if you are prone to being cold. It will feel like a Change in Lattitude compared to the September home games, and there will definitely be a change in attitude on the field.
Look for the Clemson O to open up and go downfield. Hopefully the slant will be implemented though as GT’s D will be coming after Korn, especially from the ends. The GT O has been giving team fits, but if the D holds their responsibilities, it is stoppable and Dabo knows it.
The series has been tight for the last decade with most games being decided by less than a touchdown. This one won’t be much different but I’m afraid we come out on the bottom side. Either way, the fans can rejoice pre and post game, enjoy a Cheeseburger in Tiger Paradise , let the Jolly Mon Sing, or celebrate like it’s Christmas in the Caribbean. The afternoon will be prime for good times with good friends.
The song references have been Overkill, just like the Presidential news coverage and the talking heads of the sports world rambling on about our change. Regardless, There is one thing The Wino and I Know, with a little Love and Luck, we will get by.
