    I've had my moments, days in the sun
    Moments, I was second to none
    Moments, when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do
    Like that plane ride, coming home from the war
    That Summer, my kid was born
    And memories like a coat, so warm
    A cold wind can't get through

    I've had my moments, days in the sun
    Moments, I was second to none
    Moments, when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do
    Like the day I walked away from the wine

    For a woman who became my wife
    And a love that, when it was right
    Could always see me through

    I've had my moments, days in the sun
    Moments, I was second to none
    Moments, when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do
    Like that cool night on the Prishtina Bridge
    When a young man almost ended it
    I was right there, wasn't scared a bit
    And I helped to pull him through

    With the fate of all mankind teetering on the brink of elimination, if not outright extinction as reconstituted Russian battle formations prepare to strike western Ukraine from Belarus, we are reminded that most nuanced wisdom from The Big Man of the 79th:

    "They ain't gonna be so smug this time next week."

    The legendary witticism has been the discussion du jour as the usual suspects argue if he is referring to Zelensky and his Ukrainian thugs, the retail suckers buying stocks in the faux bear-market rally, or, perhaps, the back of the ballot opposition giving him the business of late.

    Equally conversant on theology, military history, state budget financing and the rights of those not quite here yet, one senses he knows some level of disdain for the New World Order globalists that seek to destroy all mankind through the emasculation of American values and her sacred constitutional affirmation of the peeps God-given rights.

    And thus it came to pass, on a waning October afternoon with a light breeze from the south -- a cool breeze, one might crack wise, The Big Man made it clear there was bidness to take care of. Serious bidness in terms of protecting the rights of his local peeps.

    As misfortune would have it, a local gadfly was babbling away about the Ardennes and wondering aloud the theoretical result if such techniques were to translate from the military to the political. The Big Man, quite familiar with both first and second Ardennes assured him it would -- especially the first. In fact, segued in between technical discussions of the coming drone boom for his beloved home county, he assured the gadfly that he would soon have an opportunity to judge -- and answer -- that very question for himself.

    Huh?

OKLAHOMA STATE @ KANSAS STATE (-1) 10/29 3:30 pm

    Whether your battlefield is The Man's weekly card, the west bank of the Dnieper, or the general election 37 Alpha counter-matrix, one truism remains constant through the ages:

    Reinforce battlefield success with escalating multi-spectral strike packages

    The Oklahoma State Cowboys are the hottest team in the country you never hear about. They travel to Manhattan, Kansas banged up but hotter than the legendary two dollar pistol following a stunning come from behind victory to rally the forces of good. Now they seek once more to channel their inner Quantrill, roll into Kansas, take no prisoners -- and burn that ********* down.

    The Man's opening price predicated on banged up Kansas State QB Martinez playing and that is a bit iffy according to Westerby, now roaming the plains in search of economic intel. Should he be ruled out, a sign change likely to emanate with the Cowboys becoming small chalk. If that the case, then it is all about the Kansas State run game and their strong defence.

    Last week Coach Gundy showed why no skipper in the conference can match him as his second half adjustments stymied the much vaunted Texas eleven to not much of nuttin'. These are not your Bill Snyder Wildcats and under coach Chris Klieman the special teams are terrible. Look for the Cowboys to block at least one kick as Klieman has lost to Gundy every single time they have gone head to head. As they say in Vegas:

    Always double down on 11 versus the dealer's six and when Mike Gundy plays Kansas State

    Ain't that the truth. Beating The Man over the course of a full season is tough enough but when we have the advantage we gotta pound the Budweiser (Apologies to Jim Bouton -- heck of a knucklball, Man). That means take the filthy lucre you lifted from his wicked wallet the week that was and let it ride. Press it up Big Daddy and always remember our Lord loves a sinner -- but he helps those who help themselves.

    Like Rommel, May 1940 at the first Ardenne, we have outflanked the foe and now time to put the foot on the gas. As Hurryin' Heinz liked to say, "A Panzer Division has no flanks" and neither does Oklahoma State and the forces of freedom and liberty carryin' on the good fight now less than a fortnight out. Our call here is Oklahoma State (plus one). You may hammer the dog dung out of this one with most nuanced confidence:

OKLAHOMA STATE 23  •  K-State Mildcats 14



    Warning: The earthquake you are currently experiencing is merely a fore-shock. When Quantrill rides, he rides hard...
