You and 93,000 of your closes friends.

Traveling to Baton Rouge Louisiana for an LSU football game is one of Dirty Handsome’s most important annual rituals. After a review of the 2008 LSU football schedule the choice was clear: return home for the LSU vs Alabama football game to participate in the fierce rivalry bourne our of over one hundred years of football and an intense, searing, infiniate hatred for Alabama football couch Nick Satan.

Handsome Salute – Mrs. Peeps

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Update: Peeps lives! After a harrowing night of animal noises and activity in backyard, Peeps returned shaken and devoid of tail feathers. Per my step-mother’s text: “We feel very blessed to have her back. Life is very short. Each day is a special gift Love, mom.”
