Outgoing Mail

In American warfare vernacular, outgoing mail is a term for friendly artillery intended for the enemy. Here at Tigerbait, it's a you tube to get you in the the right mood about the Tiger's whipping their next opponent and just getting out of the office for the weekend. I give you: You've Got Another Thing Comin' by Judas Priest.

Ryan Perrilloux, you think you can keep dicking around?

Buzz Bissenger, you think you can start a critical dialogue of blogs with the prosaic and intelligent "I think you're full of shit."?

Kentucky, you really think you can withstand LSU and their winning streak in Lexington?

You've all got another thing coming kids. Along with lots of leather, studs, lasers, 110% percent badass early 80's metal videoes and pain, lots of pain.

Yes this is late:

But it shows how much cooler my school news paper is than yours. All your 4/20 jokes are belong to the The Daily Reveille.

And as for the furor over Journalism versus Bloggers, High rise penthouses vs Mom's basement, Hitler vs the Constitution that was ignited this week by Buzz Bissinger being a bit of a dick to a prominent blogger, it's been said already. What I can say is take it easy on Buzz, he's had a rough week:

"This is by far the nicest email I have received so far. The H.G. stands for Harry Gerard. And I really appreciate your liking the picture of my dog Maddy. Now I will stop while I am ahead. Thanks for writing without savagely attacking me personally for being stupid, ugly, a fuckhead, a dickface and fucking a horse...

Nice picture of your lab."

You see, I really wanted to hate this dude, because he chose an obnoxious nickname instead of his name. I REALLY wanted the H.G. to stand for something silly. Instead, I got a peak at a man who has just been beaten down. So please, for the sake of his dog (picture is on his website), take it easy on the poor man.

And finally, as if you didn't know this, you ain't fresh like I'm is/can't touch this/I'm cooler than you:

Yep, that's a custom purple and gold cast for my achilles. Admit it, you're jealous.


  1. Dude - what happened to your leg? And who painted your cast?

  2. I caught Costas and the blog/media bit.

    Honestly, I think the media guys are just running a bit scared and over reacting.

    The days of huge numbers of highly paid newsprint writers are gone, gone, gone. Bloggers can do what many, many of them have been doing for years - copying and pasting.

    But for the good ones, they should be thankful. Bloggers will never fill the need, so they will rise in esteem.

    If you've read Moneyball (and you should), you know what I mean. There will always be room for serious, educated, professional writing. But that doesn't mean there's no room for Deadspin.

    Anti blog attitudes are elitist BS.

  3. Ruptured achilles. Surgery was a week ago. Check last week's Outgoing Mail to see a note about it. From the bafflement of the nurses, I was apparently the first patient at a prominent surgeon's office in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to request a purple & gold cast. They made it happen, credit to them.


Don't be rude. Or I will delete your comment. Questions?
