Thoughts From The Abyss: My 2007 Christmas Wishlist


Posted by

I wish…

That FSU Baseball doesn’t start strong and then tank yet again.

That the Seminoles find some guys for the MCB that have the talent to play, but haven’t shown it yet.  

That Jimbo Fisher gets a big box of Halls, he’ll need it after all of the yelling he needs to do.

For a new HD scoreboard at Doak Campbell Stadium and ribbon boards that do more than display ads.

For some spare scoreboard light bulbs at JoAnne Graf Field.

For FSU soccer to take the final baby step and win the College Cup next year.

For Verne Lundquist to finally hook up with Tim Tebow. 

For Gary Danielson to be crushed that Verne got to him first.

That ACC referees get this book, and learn from the mistakes in it. 

For Preston Parker to stay healthy and motivated.

For fans to get off Drew Weatherford’s back.

For a successful 2008 for the independent bloggers out there, keep up the good work!

    F$U to get a clue.

    Ah… I love random comments that use the $ for the S in FSU. It’s so original. It’s a bad as “Gaytors.”

  3. gatorhippyNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, NoleCC…

    I’m more akin to expanding the acronym in a creative fashion, such as…

    Fat Severence University…

    Forcibly Subdued University…

    Fraudulently Scholastic University…

    Fogie Stays Unendingly…

    of course there are a few for UF…

    University of Firearms…

    University of Fluffers…

    University of Felonies…

    Had to add those lest I be accused of being a homer…

    See at least that took a bit of thought Hippy… and you are a homer… but that’s okay, you’re an intelligent homer. ;-)

    Oh, another one is Coach Richt. Looks like you guys pissed that one away.

  6. NoleCCNo Gravatar says:

    Eh, I was never a big fan of Richt’s offense and its 3rd & 15 draw plays, although admittedly he’s doing well at Georgia. I think Fisher is a step in the right direction though, only time will tell.

  7. Big Dawg says:

    It’s to bad that all the kids who used to go to F$U now want to go to UGA. I guess it’s just how the cycle goes.

  8. Matt from New EnglandNo Gravatar says:

    yeah “s” is trying to be funny I think… unsuccessfully at that. It’s true Richt was a good coach here, but I, (and i’m sure most Florida State fans would agree) show no anger or resentment towards him, and am happy at how he’s doing at UGA

    It helps when you had a Quarterbacks like Ward and Weinke, receivers like Warrick, Dugans, Coles, and Minnis and backs like Williams, Dunn, Chaney and Minor.

    Instead of making potshots at the other schools, how about we stop ignoring the elephant in the room and crack down? FSU isn’t in the NFL, it’s still a college, and hopefully the kids are learning something beyond a general studies major.

  11. NoleCCNo Gravatar says:

    Aww c’mon Anon… don’t say kids when we mean “a few student athletes.” I already got yelled at for that. Plus, I have to keep myself entertain, it’s just whatever bubbles up into my head. :)

    F$U should to whatever they can to get in the SEC. I think would go a long ways in starting the healing process.

    If they remain in the weak ACC, they may never get over this.
