Despite a 3-0 record going into tonight’s tilt with LSU, the natives are a bit restless at Auburn after the team scored three points last week against Mississippi State (and still won). So much so that the Dean thought it necessary to send an email to the student body informing them that booing is “for squares,” or “totally lame,” or…what is it the kids are saying these days?

The letter sent by Dr. Johnny Green not only discouraged negative vibes, but also warned against acting like idiots in the background of ESPN’s College Gameday, which is airing live from outside Jordan-Hare Stadium as we speak. Luckily, the letter’s full contents have been made available via these fine internets we inhabit.
KID ROCK ROLLING WITH BOOS FROM BLACKHAWKS FANS: The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES reports Kid Rock loved the reception he got from Blackhawks fans Sunday night:
When the Devil Without A Cause was shown on the United Center big screen, the crowd jeered long & loud. Could be because Rock was decked out in the jersey of the rival Detroit Red Wings.And he was quite proud of the reaction: “Getting booed on the Jumbotron is one of the best things in the world. It means you’re a true fan. Jack Nicholson taught me that when he came to Detroit to see a Lakers game.”
Sunday night’s contest was also the first Blackhawks home game shown to Chicago TV viewers this season. And the stars came out to be seen, including actress Joan Cusack and former Chicago Bull Bill Wennington.Remarkably, TV cameras in the arena didn’t keep local fans away. The announced attendance was 19,045 - the biggest crowd of the season.
Guess Bill Wirtz was wrong.
KOBE BOOED IN BEGINNING, BUT ALMOST A HERO IN LOSS: The Good: Kobe was gold, and, more importantly, *in* gold Tuesday night, racking up 45 points for the Lakers.
The Bad: He missed on a last-second chance to reach 47, as L.A. lost to Houston, 95-93.The Ugly: During team introductions, Bryant was booed by the Staples Center crowd.
Still, there were some support seen scattered throughout the $70 seats for the sullen superstar:
Should be an entertaining season, unless last night’s results are repeated 83 more times.
