it has flown by..and got to see only 3 FB Natties in 65 years of cheering for those TiGERS.

But, they will give it the ole CLEMSON College Cadet try again this year.

Saying, watch out for howling dogs leaving ATL with their tails tucked beHIND them!

Go TiGERS..Jeep ROCKing!

Happy Birthday Bill! You’re one of my favorite poasters on TNet. Your wisdom and humor make the days a bit brighter for everyone! I’m a young Buck 53 years young that was born into a clemson family.

My Dad started my Iptay journey as he has been a member since the early 70’s. I also feel blessed to have seen the greats play at Clemson from Steve Fuller to Trevor Lawrence. Many ups and downs but I wouldn’t trade teams for all the tea in China.

I look forward to celebrating many more trips around the sun with you! Much love to you and yours on your special day!

So OneJedi, you had me confused a couple of weeks ago when you were posting about Star Wars that came out in 1977 and that you made multiple trips to see it in theaters and drive-ins. I was thinking you were a teenager in the mid to late 70s like I was.

Turns out, you were a kid going with family and friends. Makes sense now. Explains why you looked a little young in the pics to have been a teenager in the 70s. Your wife is cute btw, which makes one wonder what she is doing with you lol, just kidding, just kidding.

Keep living on that borrowed time. God still has plans for you, so all is good.

We are better off than the coots..no fb natties and only one
conference title. They fall back on the baseball natties and
womens basketball.Of course we do have natties in soccer and
many ACC titles and bowl wins.
