Ending On A High Note

The regular season came to an end yesterday and our Bulldogs ended it well with a win over Georgia Tech.

Bravo to Mark Richt and the boys for turning around their season in a fine manner. On to the SEC championship next week!

Sad Day to Be a Bulldog...

...or a sports fan in general. We've lost another of the greats. Larry Munson, the voice of the Bulldogs for over four decades has passed away. No one in the Bulldog nation is unaware of this but I still felt like I had to put down a tribute to the man who meant so much to all of us.

There's nothing else to say except we'll all miss you a lot, Mr. Munson. Thank you.

Some Things Aren't Pretty... today's victory over Kentucky. Not pretty but it did cinch up the SEC East so we'll take it.

Something that I do think is pretty though is my continuing usage and mastery of the brush as my main instrument of inking. For many, many years I only used pens and made my own line variation. I love the control that gives me but it is time consuming and makes your hand cramp eventually. So here is this week's installment...

I also switched up the background to purple. Don't want to become stale with my toon-ing.

See you next week for Georgia Tech!

Homecoming and Old Friends

This past weekend was Young Harris College's homecoming. I was not able to attend but one of the most favorable and positive changes that Young Harris has made in recent years was to move homecoming from the miserable and oppressive heat of summer to the fall. That is/was/always will be my favorite time to be in Young Harris. The leaves are changing, the air is cool and crisp, and there is just a feeling of joy that comes over me being there.

I wanted to take this time to let all of my friends from this time know that they are the most important and influential group in my life second only to actual family. My time with you continues to influence the way I look at the world and dictates how I react to same. There are those that are still among my closest friends on this planet. And even those that I was not that close with still gave me reason to think and look at things differently.

I don't agree with a lot of what they are doing at Young Harris these days. I think it is too developed and I think they are trying to do too much to change what made our little school special. But time marches on, I suppose. I have what made Young Harris special to me safe and sound. And I want to thank each and every one of you for that.

Go Mountain Lions!

Oldest Rivalry in the South

Georgia vs. Auburn. Plain and simple. Big rewards and big risks. Lots of fun.

But COME ON! Pick a mascot! You can't call yourself the tigers and scream "War Eagle!" all the time. That's just greedy. And confusing. Figure out who you are, Auburn. On the inside. We'll wait.

Guest Writer

So this week's Bulldog cartoon has a guest writer...Lady Paintmonkey! (Or to be exact: Sugarmonkey. Visit her facebook page or blog.) This week is UGA's homecoming so they are playing the WAC division powerhouse New Mexico State. And by "powerhouse" I mean, of course, "oh my god, Georgia is beating them 49-3 in THE FIRST HALF".

I found out who the NM State Aggies were and what their mascot was but I was having a devil of a time coming up with a gag. Enter the Sugarmonkey. She suggested the hog-tying of their mascot which is much cleaner and more socially acceptable than her usual suggestions.

So here is this week's offering.

Honestly, I quit watching the game. I've got the radio broadcast going in the background but I'm not paying too much attention. That was ugly.

Be sure to be here next week! Exciting fun stuff from the Paintmonkey!
