As we’ve discussed ad nauseum at this point, Auburn competed well at Classic City Classic last month. The team finished in 6th place, highest among the four Bama Secs teams in attendance.

What they also did, remarkably, is film games. We saw footage of the Auburn-LSU game AKA ZOMG TOM ECHOLS BROKE HIS ELBOW last week, and now we’ve been blessed with a few more of Auburn’s games from CCC.
So if you’re keeping score at home, Auburn is faring pretty damn well at this whole Internet thing:
Be good on Twitter. CHECK.
Film and upload your games. CHECK.

Top-five favorite Christmas movies off the top of my head:
4. Love Actually
3. A Christmas Story
2. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
1. Home Alone.
Home Alone stands alone. Best Christmas movie of all time, in my opinion. Forget the sequels because they suck, this is the only one you need to see. Watch it, over and over and over again. So good.
Which makes today’s Internet discovery even more interesting. I give you the Woof Maker.
Look, I made one for Brodie Smith!

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
T-Town Throwdown, the unofficial start of the 2014 spring college ultimate season, is a little more than a month away. There really isn’t much to do the next few weeks but wait for it.
And look up archival Bama Secs videos on YouTube.

Another great video from Machine. 6th place at USAU Nationals, 1st place in our hearts.
End-of-the-year lists are a dime a dozen. So I’m throwing another dime in the collective water fountain of the Internet.
You know, for good luck.
I listen to a lot of music during the day. It is one of the perks of having a 10-hours-a-day and on-the-computer-all-day desk job with unlimited and unfiltered Internet access. STAY IN SCHOOL, KIDS.
Spotify Premium, which I also discovered in 2013, is my musical vehicle of choice. I’ve had access to more music this year than I have since my freshman year of college at the height of Napster.
RIP Napster. Never forget.
These are my personal favorite albums of 2013, not necessarily the BEST ALBUMS of 2013. Understand the difference before you blast me in the comments. Otherwise, feel free to agree/disagree/add to the discussion. Always looking for new/better/worse music.

Savage is technically the last preseason tournament before the start of the spring college season. It comes the weekend before T-Town Throwdown this year, and usually is a good way to shake off some of that holiday fatness/laziness/rust.
Usually a good contingent of college teams at this event, too, which will provide some quality reps.
Auburn beat LSU on Saturday in pool play at Classic City Classic a few weekends ago en route to their 6th place finish. Footage of that game has emerged on YouTube courtesy of Auburn’s Ryan Landry.

Of note, this is also the game in which LSU freshman Tom Echols broke his elbow. I cringed when I saw it and my heart still hurts. #TomEcholsfanboy
