Central High Teacher Resigns
During a special, closed session the city of Tuscaloosa's Board of Education accepted the resignation of Tiffany Marx Thursday night. Marx taught math and coached softball at Central High School. No reasons were given for her resignation. No comment has been made by the Board or their attorney.

Long time, no speak...
Mood:  irritated
So, it's been a while since I updated this thing. Exams, work stuff... Argh!

Anyway, NewzHound is on the prowl once more.

In the interest of keeping my job and better being able to serve West Alabama I have edited this blog.

Sorry for the false advertising, but everything has been turned over to people in more of a capacity to make some meaningful change. And I'm all about meaningful change.

Anyway, some rumors are circulating about the school systems in West Alabama. As I get more details I'll post them.

Stay tuned.

More CoV!
So I broke down yesterday and bought CoV. Other than some loading time issues and the occasional freezing up of my hardware, its pretty tight.

Missions now feature cut-scenes that add to the comic book feel of the game. There's new player emotes and tons of new costume options. I haven't had the chance to take part in any PvP or experiment with the base options. I've got more time to play today, so maybe I'll get to dabble a bit.

City of Villains
Well, I'm off to buy CoV. I played some on the beta and just wasn't all that impressed with it. It felt like more of the same. Some friends are really having a blast on there, so I figure I'll pick it up so I can enjoy the multi-player features.

And the Christmas blitz begins...
I decided to make something yummy, delicious, and good today for lunch so I spent some time down at Brunos. I purchased a Coke decorated with drifting snowflakes, polar bears, and other Christmas decor.

Am I crazy or do we have another major American holiday between now and December 25? Yeesh...

BTW, my lunch turned out spendid. Broccoli, chicken, and cheese pasta loaded with alfredo sauce. Yummy...

Happy Halloween!
It's spooky scary time! I may go pick up City of Villains today.

Yesterday was weird. My producer decided to re-write some key elements to a script I was planning to submit for the Hearst Awards. Aggravating...

Now I've got to voice the entire package again so it won't be "dumbed down".

College Football
Interesting day of football in the SEC yesterday. Georgia lost and Tennessee lost... Again. Yikes. You know Fulmer HATE Spurrier.

I had a great time at the West Alabama State Fair yesterday. If you haven't dropped in yet, be sure to check it out today. It was a lot of fun, minus losing my Zippo. Be sure to secure all loose items before riding anything.

I'm headed out to Bryant High to package "The Boys Next Door". It should be a nice feature story.

Georgia is struggling!
The Bulldogs look AWFUL right now. I figured they'd have a tough time without Shockley, but holy moley!

Florida's uniforms are the ugliest thing I've ever seen. Tacky, tacky, tacky...

It's 14 - 0 Florida with just under 5 minutes left to play in the 1st quarter. The Dawgs better do something fast.

Bryant makes the playoffs...
Well, after three and a half quarters of hanging with undefeated County High, Bryant's defense came up short on a couple of series in the 3rd quarter and County High started piling on the points. The game was a lot closer than the 46 - 19 score would lead you to believe.

Allbarn seems to have taking care of business with Ole Miss and the Gators are giving Georgia fits. What happened to Georgia's D? And what's up with these Florida uniforms.

Bama's having their way with Utah State, as expected.

Roll Tide!

This just in!
OK, I just got off the phone with B. Thomas J. who interviewed Bryant High Head Coach Scott Booth earlier today. According to B. Thomas, the playoff tie-breakers have moved to a point to where victories by your common opponents that you have beaten come into effect. What that means is this: if you beat a team you get 1 point for every team they've beaten. If you've got the most points at the end of the season, you're going to the playoffs and someone else is staying home.

As things are right now Bryant, Hueytown, and Pleasant Grove are all tied for 3rd place in Region 4. The top 4 teams go to the playoffs. So, somebody out of that three way tie is staying home.

Bryant can secure the 3rd place spot outright by beating County High. Bryant would pic up 9 points for the 9 wins the Wildcats have posted this season. I doubt that's going to happen.

Hueytown plays Walker County tonight and Pleasant Grove plays Mountainbrook. In the simplest of terms, IF Bryant loses to County High and BOTH Hueytown and Pleasant Grove win, then Bryant will NOT go to the playoffs.

If Bryant loses to County High and either Hueytown OR Pleasant Grove loses, Bryant WILL go to the playoffs. Which spot, 3rd or 4th, will depend on a few other things. It'll be way better for Bryant if they end up 3rd because the first match up is #4 versus #1 Homewood and that might get ugly.
