The Monday Melange 02.15.10: ATL Snow, Tee Martin, Mark Fox

–Hope you all had a happy Valentine’s Day (or Single Awareness Day, as the case may be for some of us) yesterday.

–Atlanta is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire country, if not the world, just as it is.  But occasionally a snowstorm passes through and it is transfigured into a veritable winter wonderland.  Here are a couple of pictures from the snow this weekend:

–Just found this:  Tee Martin, the quarterback who led Tennessee to its national championship in 1998, is not too terribly happy about Lane Kiffin.  Tee Martin is now an assistant coach on Joker Phillips’s staff up at Kentucky.

–Speaking of Kentucky, Rich Brooks is an excellent coach who has done some really great things up there.  But in all his time there, he never did any better than 8-5.  There are limits on how much can be accomplished up there.

–Just wanted to give a quick shout-out to Mark Fox because I hear he is doing great things over in Athens this year.  Hope he can keep it up.

–In honor of Valentine’s Day, here is some free marital advice for you fellas out there (I’m not saying this is good advice.  I’m just saying it’s free.  You get what you pay for):  If your wife or significant other asks you to do something, do it quickly, and do it wrong.  That way, you will get credit for doing it quickly, and you will also get the added benefit of knowing that you will never again be asked to do it.

–Think it’s cold here?  The high today in Amundsen-Scott Station, Antarctica, is forecast to be -34.  The low tonight is -49.  The windchill is -74.
