Isn't Life Rad?

Hey everyone. Well, I sure am enjoying life these days. The weather has been great and my new job is more rewarding than I ever expected. Parlay that with a wonderful wife and daughter -- and you have perfection.

Here's a few pics that demonstrate the wonder of what lies ahead.

But first ... some of you have asked what I've been doing.

I commute to Auburn for work. It's fun.


My life couldn't be better. If you KEEP GRINDING, good people will take notice and you'll be on your way to the big time.

Don't believe me? CHECK THIS OUT :

I enjoyed these after my last day on the previous job. That's a celebration I won't soon forget. LOL




Here's our cat, Sammy. Isn't he lovable? LOL 




This is my younger pug, Howie. Isn't he lovable? LOL LYLAS 




Here's my daughter and her favorite teacher. They're awesome together. LOL LYLAS 


Check out the view from the Ober Gatlinburg chairlift. RIDE THE LIGHTNING. LOL


Mmmm. Pizza. Yummy. LOL


Look at these crazy kids. No, I don't mean Denton and Jimmy Fallon. LOL 


I'm on the track SHOCKING everyone! LOL

Life's so rad!

  1. Love the new blog! Will they be shutting down 1.0? Just wondering if I am going to be checking here, 1.0, 2.0 and AuburnSports! That's alot to keep up with!

  2. I wasn't planning to make this a destination, but I guess it could be a fallout bunker in times of woe or heartache.

  3. What I want to know is where to go to keep up with the Hotties? I love the substance at AuburnSports, but it doesn't seem like the place for us to be sharing our personal lives. And I really want to keep up with everyone - we have lots happening around here.

  4. There's nothing wrong with the HABOTN, is there?

    Complete lack of substance notwithstanding.

    ReplyDelete
  5. No, we just really miss you around there. You think the MA will get someone soon? And do you think they plan on keeping it functioning?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow. Just wow. Family substance. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Cincy, their ace candidate turned them down. I'm afraid it's going to be a while longer.

  8. Hey JGT, so does MA own the "Hottest Auburn Blog on the Net" phrase? How 'bout the USA women winning gold in futbol and water soccer in the space of 10 minutes!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sadly, the Advertiser does own the HABOTN mark. They do not own the HABOTN.com domain or the Twitter handle.

    Very stoked about our women! Picking up the men, who can't even qualify for the Olympics (in the case of soccer).

    ReplyDelete
  10. Still laughing. Crying, actually.

    ReplyDelete
  11. MA just got URL bombed.

    Well played.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Bwahahaha!!! I love it. Now, if you ever want to have an amicable parting of ways, don't rush a high profile guy out the door. Paybacks are a ...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love that they said on the HABOTN forums that HABOTN.net is a gift to you.

    ha ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  14. Admin's last post essentially said go find JayG at Habon.com. I really figured it would link to the new gig, but this is much better.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Having a blast, guys! That's what HABOTN is all about.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Looks like you like to LOL. OMG, me too!

    1. rats, deleting a comment doesn't actually delete the comment, it just edits it to "This comment has been removed by the author." So much for retroposting BEASLEY!!!

  19. Hey. Save the drama for your momma. Also, did the young Ms. Tate write this for class?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Were you really a fast cart driver?

    ReplyDelete
  21. JayG, did you anticipate the Hotties hijacking your family blog?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hang on a cotton pickin' minute. A few minutes ago there was some useful information on a great new site. Now it's not there.

    Or was it there? I keep getting confused on where I am at.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey, look,....

    another blog on which to run simultaneous threads. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Had to prove I'm not a robot.... but they didn't even take blood or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Um, well, "some people" got their feelings hurt by the news that I left my previous employer. So to assuage them, I edited it. Lotsa people interested in me Havin A Blast!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm happy to be here. LOL LYLAS

    I liked the AUBURNSPORTS.COM links, too.

    Hope all is well. Can 't believe you didn't snag the HABOTN.net domain. I'll take it when they forget to renew it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Have you been able to visit AUBURNSPORTS.com, Peter?

    ReplyDelete
  28. not yet. soon. very soon. I doubt I'll ever post in those message boards, though. What's the difference between the 30 day free trial and the 7 day free trial that are both advertised on the home page?

    ReplyDelete
  29. 21 days. Wow. Remind me to never hire u.

    ReplyDelete
  30. 23 days?

    Man, I dunno what the best deals are. All I know is that we offer an avalanche of substance over there.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Don't hire me either. 23 not 21.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm a terrible employee. I work hard and overshadow my inferior coworkers.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Some would say PF's kick to groin of the madmin on HABOTN was a low blow. Not me. Of course, after three or four more, well, it's a judgment call.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Man, now that we've turned back time I've just gotta come clean. I dug 1.0 much better. I like it intimate. Wait, what???

    ReplyDelete
  35. Glad to see you, Scottie B. Now, time to get you to Greasin' The Rails.

    ReplyDelete
  36. :) thanks. my life has been nuts the past few months. i'm lucky to read practice reports these days.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Feng the Admin unwittingly sends us all to Jay's new blog. Nice.

    ReplyDelete
  38. PF has been utterly charming. As he always is.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey Errybody!

    Awesome "GET SOME" today Homer. Sheer awesomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Will I have to acknowledge I'm a living, breathing human being with every post here? I'm about to find out.

    I couldn't even type in the verification on the iPhone so came back to the laptop to post my substance.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm greasing the rails as well. BTW, they add the trials together, and you get 37 days, or so I'm told.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ah, found it. I feel like a high school sophomore looking for the seniors party, and finally found it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Good morning. Big day. Sad day. Great day. Moving the Stewardess to Auburn.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well, you'll have Turbo there to help you...wait, well, she'll have Turbo there to help her...ah, yeah, I can see the mix of emotions.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm Scottie B, always a bigger fan of 1.0. Love the new digs here.

    ReplyDelete
  46. 1.0 ...............check
    2.0 ...............check
    .net ..............check
    campfire, embers...check

    ...elapsed time of 33 minutes, hey that's a new personal best.

    morning hotti..er... blasties!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just read Admin's post. Have no idea why we are here. There is nothing at the domain anymore according to it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ah, just read Eddie's post to MADmin. I see what you meant.

    ReplyDelete
  49. AUsome pics JG. Glad you're loving the new gig.

    An empty nest will take some getting used to Jet. Take up some hobbies.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I wish I could see what's going on over there. Their lawyer really didn't like my commentary about the Advertiser that I posted here yesterday. I was just asking why every story reads "Special the the advertiser."

    ReplyDelete
  51. Stories from an unpaid intern don't seem very special to me, though he's a nice young man.

    ReplyDelete
  52. The inmates have taken over the asylum and we're running wild.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Admin has ZERO personality and got a little petty over the .com to .net post "it" made. Admin would be advised to just not say anything IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  54. The Advertiser isn't really putting anything out on Auburn. People are bringing in free info they find elsewhere. We're getting by but we're going to have to spend more time getting info elsewhere as the season starts up

    ReplyDelete
  55. They'll hire someone eventually.

    Until then, we're HAVING A BLAST!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm still laughing at this new blog.

    Of course, having to verify I'm not a robot everytime kinda stinks.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The comment box doesn't seem to like my iPad very much either. It and that captcha have a tendancy to lock up.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Nice. I wish I could type sarcasim into my posts. People ALWAYS read me so literally. I'm great at sarcasim in person, but terrible posting it. Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  59. The comment box here works okay for a Nexus 7 in Chrome, but you (and everyone else) is invisible at the campfires on it. Which is actually kinda cool.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Good morning, Hotties! Poor Jay, not sure he wanted his blog hijacked by a buncha crazies! But, here we are! Jay, can you fix it where we don't have to do that verification every time? :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hijacking R Us. It's what we do. We move in and take over a place. I think it's enhanced by all of us feeling a little rootless right now.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'll work and the verification thing. It'll take me a few hours, I'm in the car.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Check that. I have it fixed right now.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Blogging and driving, Jay G!? You are a madman (but not madmin).

    Some peops are definitely directing some anger at the madmin. Feng can't seem to catch a break wherever he goes.

    1. You guys are welcome to do what you want to do, but I don't think there's any reason to give trouble to the administrator. He's just doing his job. He is not the enemy.

      Delete
    2. His job is to come across as a snotty nosed punk? Cool.

      Delete
    3. Like I said, PF did manage to get in a pretty successful series of groin shots. I don't know about today. Haven't been there.

      Delete
  65. Yeah. I don't know that we should direct our anger at madmin.

    JayG, is madmin a man? Is he 40?

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think "admin" is a collaboration between Terry and Joey.

    They're not friends of "the blog I maintained primarily on my free time while associated with my former employer," but they're not the bad guys. Just trying to make a living.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hey, I guessed Joey!

    Do I get a prize?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Yes, yes you do. Please allow 6 - 8 weeks for shipping and handling.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Give me your address bubbs. I will send you a cooler.

    I can't believe Feng lied to me when he said he was the new admin. I feel so betrayed.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Where do I send my address MJT?

  72. Let's go to a couple of hours of feeder team football pep rallies...woo hoo.

    1. I feel pretty safe posting it however, because it will take her some time to find it among the multitude of blogs....
