As I sat down here in my seat in the media room, I was blessed with a sight that any blogger would jump for joy over. Fred Smoot rolled up right in front of me in his 1964 Chevy Impala, at least that's what I believe it to be.
He was, of course, "hittin' dem switches", as I beleve the kids say. Also, keep in mind that the volume from his bass-heavy speakers was literally rattling the windows in front of me.
Not only did Smoot provide me with my best image from the day, he also dropped the biggest bombshell as we spoke after practice about the next step in the evolution of Smoot Smack.
"Soon we be headin' to the shelves. We gonna get that intenet thing going where dey can come on and talk to me back and forth, blogging, and just see the day-to-day life of me and my football team. It should be ready in about a month."
WAIT... Fred Smoot is going to be blogging???
"Yea, actually I'm going to start off and I'll just write my stories and you just flow after that. You just flow. I'll be writing back to my fans."
Will this be like Cooley's Blog?
"I read it before. Cooley would tell me about it. He'd say how it's a hassle sometimes, but I be like, man, come on, I've been talkin' noise my entire life. What people say don't really hurt me."
Let the countdown to Fred Smoot's blog begin. The entire internet can only hope Smoot stays true to his word.
