Sorry to have missed the Week One podcast (see link below), but if you listened, you know that the other Three TMG Horsemen put on a really good show.

The golf game was scheduled before the podcast was. And before I knew just how seriously we should all take Tony Barnhart’s “Mr. College Football’’ moniker. I think he’s ensconced, Brewster-McCloud-like, in Atlanta’s new Mercedes Dome.

We will work around that schedule in the future, Tony. Make sure you use sunscreen when you go outside. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
