Does he sign your paycheck?
No he does not, Uncle Sam does that. However being military he can (and has) sent me to Iraq with little to no notice.
A worst case scenario would have be standing up a recruiting station is some little village within sight of the Iranian boarder. :lol: Of course a snow covered Afghanistan can be a winter wonderland around Christmas (or bowl season) as well.
In that case, I'd probably make it a point to talk (in depth) about every other SEC game I could think of this week.
With the exception of two people, everyone in my section of the building are Clemson fans and those two don't follow football. I didn't say a thing to them before the game other than "it should be a good one and I feel better about this game now than I did in the spring." (a good month or so of that before we played Clemson)
Strategically, I've had something Alabama related in my office on Monday mornings this year. To this date, they haven't had a lot to say to me other than complimentary things. (I did field a handful of questions about Dabo and my thoughts on that)
Talk about UGA vs LSU this week...pretend we don't even play. I think, if I were you, about the most I would say is a question as to why there are so many UT tickets available for this game.
