My Memory Of Fulmer

Posted by Joel Jackson on November 3, 2008

So Fulmer is gone. Wow. This is the breakup that you knew would happen, but when it does happen you are still shocked. Watching the press conference, I saw a man with a fire and passion still for Tennessee football, but was also sad that his time was gone. Seeing him tear up was touching, although a $6 million buyout along with his legendary status in the state & Vol fans nationwide will dry his tears.

s_fulmer_i

I wanna travel back in time and share a memory that I had of Coach Fulmer. I went to Knoxville in the spring of 1997. I had a childhood friend that was getting scholarship offers from a ton of schools, including Tennessee. Since I was in college in Nashville, I agreed to meet my friend in Knoxville. You know, like I really needed an excuse to go to Knoxville. Anyway, we go there with his mom and stepdad & tour the campus then meet with the football staff. After catching a shuttle to Neyland, we meet some of the players there along with Coach Fulmer.

A lot has been said about his weight. I can’t think of another coach that has been photoshopped with love (and hatred) than Coach Fulmer. With that said, meeting him I could see that he generally doesn’t skip a meal with plenty of carbs and sugar. In other words, he’s a big guy. But when meeting him, he was gentle. I can remember Fulmer telling my buddy & I to meet him in the tunnel, along with some of the other recruits. I can remember him giving us a pep talk then telling us “Will you give your all for Tennessee today?!?!” Of course we said yes and ran out of the tunnel like we were about to line up. He made me feel like I was actually a player, even though I was far from it.

A few years later, I visited my friend & two of his linemen buddies in their apartment. They had to go to study hall on Sunday & as we get on campus, we see Fulmer pull up. After speaking, he tells me that someone on his staff needs to be fired to have a skinny runt on his team. I shoot back that they recruited me so I could be his personal Krispy Kreme guy. He laughs, puts his massive hands on my shoulder, and says “Well if that is the case, your hands are empty & you’re fired”. He was a good sport about things.

Whatever happens, I will always remember Coach Fulmer for a lot of things, but these are my two favorite memories of the man. Work like heck.

Big John Henderson is scary…

The War that is known as the 3rd Saturday in October

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 24, 2008

 

Most experts say that fans take sports and cheering for their favorite teams to seriously. In most cases I tend to agree with them. However those experts have never experienced the Third Saturday in October either. They do not know the joy or exhilaration of seeing the Tennessee Volunteers or the Alabama Crimson Tide take the field right before kickoff. Those experts have never felt the excitement in the air that is buzzing around when the teams line up.

This game is much more than a simple competition between two border state rival schools. This game is about passion, heart, pride & respect! And nothing means more than to these two teams than respect.

For Phil Fulmer this year’s game is about his legacy and his coaching career at Tennessee. For Nick Saban this year’s game is about a possible BCS birth and the chance to play for the national championship.

It’s hard to say who has the most to lose in this game. If Tennessee loses then Fulmer is most likely out as the head coach & if Saban loses then people will still question the hire by Alabama and people will point to this lose with an “I told ya so” attitude.

It is also equally hard to say who has the most to gain by a victory. If Tennessee wins then Fulmer will most likely keep his job as the head coach whether he wins out or not. A win would also propel the VOLS into a brighter national light. The number seven recruiting class that Fulmer is currently building could jump to number one. If Alabama wins then Saban brings Alabama to an 8-0 record and a possible number one ranking. The road to the BCS National Championship becomes ever so closer. And of course Saban could reel in yet another top rated recruiting class.

For the fans this game is an oxymoron of painful orgasmic joy. They live and die on every play, every called timeout & every injury. Both fan bases are smart enough to know that one can throw out the win/loss records for these two schools when they play. That fact alone makes rivalry games like this so intense.

Throw out what the experts say about sports and the seriousness of being a fan. They have never witnessed college gridiron gladiators battle each other like these two teams. If you look into the fans eyes on this holy day you will see both love & hate. Love for their favorite team and hate for the opposing team.

The Sunday following the game (or Monday for some fans) as the players and fans alike are recovering from their injuries or walking on air, the realization should set in that this is simply a game. However the fact that their memory will either joyously or painfully remind them of the final score and then reality actually sets in.

This is not a game. This is war that is fought only once a year and victors of that year’s war savor every moment of it for many times over in their heads. I’ve always said a good Alabama team is a beaten Alabama team.

Ladies and Gentlemen this is not a game: THIS IS THE BATTLE KNOWN AS THE THIRD SATURDAY IN OCTOBER!!!!!!

GO VOLS! Beat Bama!!!

Now let’s review some past Bama farks.

Yup…It’s Time…

Posted by Joel Jackson on September 4, 2008

No, we here at the site are not endorsing Obama, McCain, or any other candidate for President. Nor are we trying to say that Fulmer is a supporter of Obama, as far as we know.

This post is about one thing, and one thing that I as a long time fan of things Rocky Top thought I would not post: changes need to occur. Fulmer needs to go.

It was this time last year that, as a matter of fact 1 year ago, that I wrote this piece. It was after the UT-Cal game. I was truly in a dark place, a place that I arrived in by a lethal combination of Jack Daniel’s and a 3 month baby girl. Having a headache from liquor and crying kids is not a good combination. However, the seeds of my discontent were not sewn during that game, but back during the mid-90’s. Yes, the “glory” years of Tennessee football. Remember when Steve Spurrier famously said “You can’t spell Citrus without UT”??? Man that hurt, but it pretty much was the truth. Look at Fulmer’s record vs. Florida. Spurrier got a sick twisted pleasure flinging around the football against Tennessee. Those seeds were sewn during every completion that was caught by Green, Caldwell, Taylor, etc.

Peyton couldn’t beat Florida. True, but Fulmer couldn’t beat Florida either. Guess what??? It ain’t happening this year either. Florida has recently discovered that a running back can be more than an extra blocker for Tebow.

Georgia has owned UT since Richt got to Athens. Fulmer has owned Alabama, but the way things play out, not anymore with Satan coaching them.

The seeds of change have been sewn by all of the close losses over the years. Anyone remember the Notre Dame loss at Knoxville??? That game helped propel the legend of Brady Quinn, nevermind the blowout the next year in South Bend. Can’t forget Memphis in 1996 (I thought the Liberty Bowl would burn down after that one). What about the close wins versus Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Kentucky??? By and large, for the past 16 years, the dominant teams in the SEC have been (in no particular order) UT, LSU, Florida, Alabama, and Georgia. All of the other teams have decent years, but with all of the 1st and 2nd round draft picks that have played in Neyland Stadium, there is no way that Tennessee should have had blowout losses against few teams, much less Notre Dame a couple of years ago, Alabama last year, and Maryland in 2002 (Peach Bowl). Tennessee should have a lot better record for the past 16 years. Fulmer has more of a reputation of making Heisman Trophy candidates, like McGahee, Couch, McFadden, Grossman, etc.

My point is this: Fulmer has lived his time. Name another street after him. Name a luxury suite after him. Name Cell Block E of the Knoxville jail after him. But he needs to go. The past 6 years has shown that Mike Hamilton has been content for being good and not great. Pat Summitt is pretty much as untouchable as Smokey. Bruce Pearl has Tennessee basketball relevant and on a way upward trend. At this point, if Tennessee wins the national championship this year (quit laughing Thomas), I will still call for Fulmer’s job. I am fed up. I am sick of the goal line fumbles, the brilliance of Randy Sanders Dave Clawson’s play calling, the every other year of John Chavis having a good defense, the miscues on special teams, and the stubbornness of staying the course and “working like heck”. If a fan of another team makes fun of Fulmer being fat, whatever, he is. If another fan says “Man there is a lot of talent on the Vols. Why is the school happy to not play in BCS bowls??? What if Tressel had this speed??? Stoops himself couldn’t blow a Fiesta Bowl with your guy’s players.” It is sad, and I can’t take it anymore. Real change involves pink slips, and this Fulmer cat is out of lives. He can’t pull the “it is the coordinator’s fault” card. Eventually, you have to look at the man who hires the coordinator. The roots are grown, and harvest time is coming…

For The Thug Who Has Everything

Posted by Joel Jackson on January 29, 2008

dontdrop.jpg

Now this is a present. This game is basically a Monopoly, but instead of “Go To Jail”, you try to break out of jail and/or get parole. This is a description of the game from the official website:

Fight your way through 6 different exciting locations in hopes of being granted parole. Escape prison riots in The Yard, slip glass into a mob boss’ lasagna in the Cafeteria, steal painkillers from the nurse’s desk in the Infirmary, avoid being cornered by the Aryans in the Shower Room, fight off Latin Kings in Gang War, and try not to smoke your entire stash in The Hole.

The artistry of each handcrafted piece is matched with comparable humor & intelligence on every card. Stack your smokes, sharpen your shank, and get ready for an experience that only someone on the outside could appreciate.

Wow. What more can be said. Check out the game pieces. Who among us played Monopoly as a kid and thought “Wouldn’t it be cool if instead of a thimble I could use a Glock as my game piece???”

What’s the sports connection??? Well let’s see: The founder of the company and game is John Sebelius, son of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Kansas is where America’s “favorite” marijuana smuggling (and smoking), lawsuit avoiding, Valtrex popping, inaccurate throwing, dog killing QB Michael Vick is currently doing his time. But let’s think of the endless possibilities..

How about a “Playmakers” Edition featuring O.J., his white Bronco, memorabilia, copy of “If I Did It”, and a Naked Gun DVD for playing pieces???

Or a “Ballers” Edition, with Kobe attached to a blonde female hotel clerk, Roy Tarpley, transcripts of Tim Donaghy’s gambling probe, Jack Sikma’s perm, and WNBA TV Ratings???

Lastly, what about a “Juiced” version, with Jose Canseco, Barry Bonds, Marion Jones, a syringe, and a torn record book???

If they market this game right, it could be a gold mine. Of course, someone needs to mail some of these games to all SEC schools, so they can play as part of the “Super Secret Double Probation”…

A Message To The Law Enforcement in Knoxville

Posted by Joel Jackson on January 23, 2008

2650.gif

To: Chief Sterling Owen, IV, Chief of Police for Knoxville Police Department & Chief August Washington, Chief of UTPD

CC: Bill Haslam, Mayor of Knoxville, Coach Phillip Fulmer, Head Honcho, All Things Volunteer Football

From: Joel, Contributing Blogger for https://ymswwc.wordpress.com and Volunteer

Dear Sirs,

I would like to first take the opportunity to thank you kind men for reading this letter. I know that you are busy trying to keep the streets of Knoxville safe, the campus of the University of Tennessee secure, and the whole state proud of its team, the Volunteers. However, as a concerned fan, both of the school, the SEC Conference, and College Football in particular, I am a little bit concerned over what has happened thus far over the past few months concerning the Volunteer football program and police run ins. These concerns have led me to question myself and ask: What can I do as a fan and native Tennessean to help out, in true Volunteer fashion??? So far, this letter that I am typing with great conviction has been my call to arms.

Listen men, we simply cannot allow your fine officers to harass our football players. They have enough to deal with, such as studying, hanging with some friends, playing football, and representing Volunteers worldwide. These fine young men are doing what it takes to “Work Like Heck” and make us all proud. So what if they decide to have a drink to relax. Is it too much trouble to ask that they stumble around in public in peace??? That fight that went on at Gibbs Hall??? What you would call a fight is what a real officer would call a UFC amateur competition. Now, because of you, Coach Fulmer has to take time away from his 6 a.m. Krispy Kreme run just so that the team can engage in some early morning calisthenics months ahead of schedule in preparation for the upcoming difficult season. I don’t see Jim Tressel getting his whole entire team up to run their 6.8 second 40’s (because they are so fast at Ohio State). We all know how irritable Coach Fulmer and Coach Chavis can get when they don’t have their 8 dozen doughnuts and 3 gallon carafes of coffee before they eat breakfast…

As for the alleged marijuana incident with Gerald Jones, Ahmad Paige, and William Brimfield, they were victims of one big understanding. A real police officer would have concluded that the marijuana smell in the car was actually a new type of GHB scented car fragrance. The “marijuana cigarette”??? Mr. Paige simply had his car detailed at the car wash where they sprayed his car with the “Chronic Fresh” scent, and one of the workers there must have had the cigarette slip out of his pocket. See??? Charge a real criminal, not these boys. Now they have to go on police ride alongs as punishment; at the very least, let them watch Season 1 of Reno: 911. I mean, having to suffer through the antics of Officers Jones and Garcia is punishment enough, much less Clementine, Weigel, Junior, and Lt. Dangle. More importantly, we lost two recruits to Oklahoma, which has a history of allowing players to roam free…

Josh “McLovin” McNeil should have been given a handshake and a pat on the back, not a ticket and a court summons. He graciously hosted 3 ladies in his room of his apartment and was bothering no one. The cat was the one that knocked the flower pot through the window. Let’s think about it: realistically, the chances of getting 2 women in the bed with the average guy is slim to none, McNeil got 3. I personally will shake his hand, no, I will HUG him if I ever meet him, as he “Volunteered” to host 3 women at once. God bless him…

In closing, boys will be boys. Who among us did not have a drink or 10 when we were 18??? Marijuana you say??? In The Netherlands, they would call that “Herbal Refreshment”. Guns??? I always thought the Constitution guaranteed us the right to bear arms??? Listen, we need to get together as a community and realize what our priorities are, which should be Volunteer Athletics. Think of a world with 1 and 2 star recruits on the field on Saturdays. People will be blaming Fulmer for poor recruiting, but if you keep harassing the players, the blame will be on you, because the real stars will be too busy with court dates and probation.

Thank you for your time and GO BIG ORANGE!!!

God must either hate West Virginia or he shows them love by making them suffer though the fact that Missouri jumped them to become the #1 in the latest BCS poll. That benevolent father, what a prankster.

Josh McNeil Does The “Tennessee Waltz”…Horizontally…

Posted by Joel Jackson on November 6, 2007

This story has broken around the internet (which is another reason why I love blogs), but UT center Josh McNeil, fresh off of a victory over Louisiana-Lafayatte, “celebrated” by having a little “fun” with some friends. According to reports, the “incident” on early Sunday morning happened when police were called to the Woodmeade South Apartments in South Knoxville (I have had friends live in that complex) on a suspected break in. One of the neighbors heard a window break and called the cops. When officers arrived, they found a broken window with blood around it (insert Baretta joke here).

This is where the story REALLY gets interesting: The apartment where the broken window was located belonged to McNeil. A plant had been thrown through the window and a man and woman could be heard inside arguing. When police knocked, no one answered, so they opted to go through the broken window. What officers did find were an assortment of guns, guns, and guns (no they didn’t break into Tony Montana’s or rapper T.I.’s places of residence). Of course, since by now this has been identified as the apartment of a UT football player, and every room was cleared except for one locked bedroom, UT Director of High School Relations Gerald Henderson was called. McNeil opened the bedroom door, and he AND THREE WOMEN were found. His girlfriend and two of her friends were there apparently “visiting”. The women were charged with underage consumption, a misdemeanor, while McNeil was not charged with any crimes (for those wondering, Facebook can confirm 2 are not bad on the eyes at all, the other does not have a page).

2005-07-26-in-fulmer2.jpg

The conundrum (damned LSAT flashbacks): Do you punish him for causing a disturbance, or do you shake his hand for “scoring”??? McNeil has been in trouble with the law before, having a charge of public intoxication dismissed in exchange for community service and paying court costs. But you do need a starting center, although if the police were really being thorough, they would check the serial #’s on those guns to ensure they were registered. What does one do???

I say he has suffered enough. He shall be now known through the rest of his life as “That guy who got caught with 3 women”. Is this maybe a tactic by Fulmer to get recruits, by saying, “Look, my guys get hot chicks in their apartments, a few at a time”??? If the center on the team gets 3, how many is Erik Ainge getting at a time??? Is this what “Being a Volunteer” means???

McFadden and Jones come to Knoxville. With the way Tennessee’s defense has played this year, maybe a booster needs to get some of these “Volunteers” to go to their hotel room and, well, you know. Hey, this will probably be the only way to stop them. Did I mention McNeil had THREE WOMEN???

Singing I wish I was on a Rocky Top, down in the Tennessee Hills…

*UPDATE* Apparently, Josh McNeil has issues with how the “media” has covered this story. According to published reports since this posting, McNeil “claims” that the women were sleeping on the floor.

“I know I live in a glass house because of who I am, but I don’t want the people I care a lot about being pulled into this,” said McNeil, who became emotional as he spoke. “You can say what you want to about me, I’m a grown man. I play football here. I’ve heard all I’ve got to hear.”

I’m a grown man. Apparently…

Now McNeil is saying that he didn’t hear anything because he took an Ambien, a popular sleeping pill (I prefer Lunesta). The Ambien knocked him out, which I call b.s. on. Did the other THREE WOMEN hear anything??? Were they too busy being drunk, or was their high naturally caused by, well, you know???

Of course, Coach Fulmer has commented as well. “Josh was not cited. There were no arrests. Therefore, as I understand the scenario right now, there will not be any discipline,” Fulmer said. “Josh and the team are looking forward to moving on to Arkansas.” Of course he is, his focus, when he’s not breaking down like a little b***h in front of the media, is on Arkansas. So is Fulmer’s focus. Here’s the thing: McNeil doesn’t play defense. How about focusing on that Fulmer, and leave the teenage poon for McNeil…

Tennessee’s Win Over USC Proves Why Fulmer & Company Need to be Fired.

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 28, 2007

This game was a game of two halves, so this posting will be a posting of two halves as well.First Half:

We pwned USC. Erik Ainge made that vaunted USC pass defense his personal bitch. USC made stupid error after stupid error that reminded everyone there and in TV land why USC is well USC. Eric Berry nearly had his second TD of the year off a fumble recovery and run back, but Chris “I Have the Oder of Ass Coming Off Me” Smelly violently grabbed him by the face mask and forced him out of bounds at the 2 yard line. You can tell by his frustration that Smelly hasn’t been laid in awhile. Berry also had an interception in the first half as well & boom it’s 21-0 going into half time. God Spurrier is seen crying in the locker room. The offensive line was playing well not allowing pressure on Ainge, and the defensive line was holding their own against the run and getting pressure on the quarterback.

Second Half:

Somehow God Spurrier has manged to drug all our players in the locker room and had lookalikes in Tennessee uniforms take the field, of course our coaching staff is to stupid to notice a small thing like that. The offense only gained 70 yards in the second half & the defense had more gaping holes in it than a hooker convention in Times Square. USC dominated both sides of the ball and rattled off 24 unanswered points. Blake “I bet he had a Mullet in High School” Mitchell was 31-of-45 for 288 yards, and he ran for a TD and threw for another.

Somehow Tennessee forced the game into overtime. The Vols only saving grace was the fact that South Carolina kicker Ryan Succop lived up to the suck part of his name and had a quick journey from hero to goat and missed the field goal that would have sent the game into it’s second overtime. USC fans were tasting that sweet victory only to have it snatched from them. It was ugly but a win is a win.


Yes, yes you do Phil. Pics courtesy of Outer MonVOLia 

The reality is the Tennessee coaching staff doesn’t have that killer instinct. The defense came out playing not to lose and well as the offense. In the end USC dominated the stats with 501 yards of offense to Tennessee’s 317, and this was a home game! USC also had Tennessee beat in passing & rushing yards as well as time of procession. I believe the game ball should be given to the USC offense because if it wasn’t for those 4 turnovers this would have been the second straight game that Tennessee was blown off the field. This win might have shut up the sheep that follow Coach Fulmer, but the smart Tennessee fan should know this team was very lucky to come out with a win.

So I profess on this day 10/28/07.

TtT

In the Midst of Losing to Vandy, Spurrier Doesn’t Want People Booing. Or Does He?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 23, 2007

Steve God Spurrier experienced something that he has never experienced before last Saturday, a loss to Vanderbilt. To make matters worse this wasn’t a road game, it was a home game, and the USC Gamecocks also didn’t score a touchdown. While I personally believe fans have the right to boo, apparently God Spurrier doesn’t.

“That’s the first time that’s happened, isn’t it?” Spurrier said Sunday. “I just assumed they were booing me and the coaches for a bad play call.”

Spurrier said he hoped the fans weren’t booing the players, which he feels is out of line.

“I’ve always sort of gone under the thought that professional players get paid. So you can boo them all you want, and they accept that,” he said. “But college kids are amateurs, and I don’t think you should boo them.”

OK college kids might be amateurs but they are getting a free education, free meals & housing on the dollar of the fans. So in that regard, yes the fans have a right to boo them. For the record some of the fans were booing both God Spurrier & the players. I heard watched the game and heard the call in show on the way home, it was brutal. Some of the USC fans were confused and thought they were Alabama fans by stating and I kid you not. “Fire Spurrier”, “Fire the AD” & “We lost I can’t kiss my cousin/mother in law!”.

Last year God Spurrier told the fans not to cheer, now they can’t boo. Spurrier has called this years team “a bunch of average stiffs”. There’s no place for whining in football. If a division 1 college player can’t handle boos or their feelings getting hurt, they need to try out for the equestrian team. THIS IS FOOTBALL!!!!

Sometime in between Saturdays comments and today God Spurrier has decided that well, fans actually do have the right to boo. I wonder if he is still on the sweet stinky weed that Florida can produce.

“Coach Steve Spurrier says Gamecock fans had the right to boo his team, after garnering a number of small penalties that added up to a big disappointment Saturday against Vanderbilt.

“It was embarassing to take those five yard penalties,” Spurrier said Tuesday during his weekly news conference. “We’re not mad at the fans; they have the right to boo because of the way it happened.” The head ball coach referred to a number of false start penalties called against South Carolina Saturday, that may have cost the Gamecocks a touchdown in at least one situation.”

First of all the author for the liberal media giant, WLTX, misspelled “embarrassing” notice two R’s. I wonder why the sudden change in the attitude concerning the boo birds. Maybe he came down from his Florida sweet stinky weed high.

“I thought we had a good gameplan, but it didn’t work,” the head ball coach said.

On the other hand, Carolina’s defense showed up to play Saturday, and they were able to shut the Commodores out three of four quarters. “The defense, I thought, played very well,” the coach said of his team.

“Hopefully we can get into a close, tight game with them,” Spurrier said of the three-loss team, that also shares two Southeastern conference losses with Florida, Kentucky, and Georgia.”

God Tennessee’s defense sucks. John Chavis needs to fired like yesterday.


John Chavis as Captain Chaos

“This is not our final best team ever, I hope everyone understands that,” the coach stated flatly.

He says this year’s strong recruiting class to go with last year’s strong set will underscore his point, but that he’s not ready to let his depth chart rest.

“I’ll try new players if I think they can play better than the guys out there,” Spurrier mentioned.”

Tell you what, why don’t Tennessee trade some unused offensive players for some USC defensive players. Does that sound fair? Then both Tennessee fans and USC fans can boo all the players at the same time. Nothing says love like fans from opposing schools booing in harmony, and firing Phil Fulmer would help as well.

I just scored tickets to this weekends game. If I go I’m sure this will be my view

So I profess on this day 10/23/07.

The Revelations After a Saturdays Worth of Football Week 7

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 14, 2007

As I said last week, this is the best college football season ever! Does anyone want to be #1? Here is what I noticed yesterday while eating chicken strips served by a waitress whose skirt was so small it could have passed for Coach 0’s IQ.

The difference between Kentucky and LSU yesterday was clearly the coaching job.

Southern Cal. looked unimpressive yesterday.

Vanderbilt looked scary but the running game of Georgia put them in their place.

Cal proved they were pretenders.

OMG Iowa actually won a game…they still suck.

JoePa focused all his inner road rage into coaching this week & look at the outcome.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Coach Fran fired today.

Let’s see Nebraska fired Frank Solich because of his record…and yet they suck worse than ever before. Black shirt defense my ass more like pink shirt with lace defense. As America’s coach Mike Gundy would say “Their defense is garbage and it makes me want to puke!”

Clemson didn’t lose!! Oh wait they weren’t playing my bad

Ole Miss has the best looking cheerleaders by far.

The reason why Boston lost to Cleveland is because I didn’t wear my Red Boston hat, I wore the blue one instead. The loss falls on me.

Tennessee’s defense is schizophrenic.

Oklahoma made a huge statement yesterday, look for them to play Missouri again in the championship game.

Nick Saban was almost out coached by Coach 0 (snicker)

South Florida looked impressive.

Houston Nutt should be looking for a new job.

Bye Bye Cincinnati now get out of the big boy polls.

Virgina showed the world that the ACC is better than the Big East.

Colorado is back to sucking.

ABC has the worst game commentators while CBS has the best.

Michigan should be ranked again.

Finally I can’t rip on Notre Dame enough so I leave you this:

So I profess on this day 10/14/07.
