Fifth annual Braves-Gamecock Ode to the late radio pigskin prognosticator, Leonard Postero aka "Leonard Postosties" of Athens, Georgia that thanks God for: the return of college football; the mostly non-rushing but still enjoyable NFL version of same; and the Vernal Equinox-induced cooler weather.
This year we begin our coverage with the vacation-delayed 4th Quarter of the 2011 ABL (Ain't Bean Ball League) championship game, scheduled for Thursday, September 8 in Washington, D.C. as the Boehner Non-Filters are smoking theObama Zeros, 20-0.
The Non-Filters jumped out to an early lead when Tea Partier returned the opening kick-off all the way and found Paul Ryan in the end zone. Boehner missed both extra points.
Debt ceiling defense dominated the 3rd Quarter before Obama fumbled the snap from Martha's Vineyard while trying to hand off to Joint Session. Boehner returned it for the third Non-Filter TD and converted the two-point try on an end around Rush Limbaugh version of the Statue of Liberty play.
Irene and Sloth made the field unplayable for days, during which time the Zeros lost a challenge to Non-Filters' title to the Capitol Hill House Chamber site for the resumption and finish of the contest, so dependent is Obama on "clearing the field" to score.

The Wildcats of Arizona launch Week Two of the NCAA season by legally crossing the Oklahoma border to lose to the 9th-ranked Cowboys of Oklahoma State.
Finally, the National Labor Relations Board cleared the 2009 NFL champion New Orleans Saints to face the 2010 defending champion Green Bay Packers since the first NFL contest of the 2011 season will take place in the non-Right to Work state of Wisconsin. No word yet on games scheduled for the Boeing Jets facility in North Charleston, S.C. by teams trying to cross the Union-Shop Iron Curtain.

The Year of the Gamecock?
Our University of South Carolina Fighting Gamecocks are the defending champions of the SEC East for the first time and return the bulk of that team, including All-Americans Marcus Lattimore (RB) and Alshon Jeffrey (WR).
Our Strong Male Role Models should cruise past the Pirates of East Carolina in Week One's neutral site contest in Charlotte, N.C., before their annual season-defining, Week Two game against the Georgia Bulldogs. This year, the Dawgs will get a Chikin' Lickin' at home between the hedges in Athens.
In other Week One College Football games:
Tigers will lose to Ducks
Trojans will lose to Tigers
Broncos will lose to Bulldogs
and the Presbyterian Blue Hose are predestined to lose at home in Clinton to Spartanburg's Wofford Terriers in their annual Palmetto State battle.
This column has always been dedicated to the late Athens, Georgia native, Leonard “Postosties” Postero, pigskin prognosticator extraordinaire, whose “Leonard’s Losers” radio show was a must listen all during our childhood and until his death in 2001.
