We’re almost to the next game day and hopefully purging ourselves from the disaster that was South Alabama. There was a lot of discussion about what went on in that game, so let me point you in the direction of some of the better posts I found.
Mississippi St. Bulldogs Links
There were a lot of knuckleheads who tweeted stupid things to Westin Graves after he missed the field goal to win the game against South Alabama. That missed field goal isn’t the reason the Bulldogs lost, it was just the final nail in the coffin. Our manager Ethan Lee had a nice interview with Devon Bell about how it feels to be that guy.
One of the things that made Dak Prescott such a great player wasn’t just his physical skill, but the intangibles he brought to the table. And one of those intangibles was the leadership he displayed on the team. Beast Man Steve at 3rd and 57 wrote a fantastic piece about how that aspect isn’t apparent in either Williams or Fitzgerald and it was on full display earlier in the summer.
The New iPhone was announced
Regardless of what type of mobile device you use, whenever Apple announces a new iPhone, it’s always a big deal. Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage and did just that.
I don’t usually upgrade with the S models, so I’ll be purchasing the new iPhone 7. I like the Plus model, so I look forward to this sleeker, lighter design. There’s a lot of whining about the loss of a headphone jack, but I hardly ever use them anyway.
Granted, there won’t be a ton of changes to the phone, especially if you upgraded to the S model when it came out. But for those of us who didn’t, there will be enough changes from the 6 to the 7 for us to get excited about.
The event started off with a Carpool Karaoke of Tim Cook and James Corden. While funny, no one cared. We wanted our iPhone.

And then it was an Apple Music update. Again, no one cares.
Apple Music is up first. 17 million paid subs. New design in iOS 10. "The premiere destination" for exclusives, 70 in a year. #AppleEvent— Macworld (@macworld) September 7, 2016
Okay, now we’re getting somewhere. The new iPhone is water resistant. It had been rumored to be true, but nice to see it come to fruition. And it comes out on September 16th, just over a week away.

Whoa, Nintendo and Mario are coming to the App Store. I’m happier about this than a 37 year old man should be.
Ok, this is news I can support. Nintendo coming to iOS. #AppleEvent— Rachel King (@rachelking) September 7, 2016
I mean, look at that, he’s playing Super Mario on an iPhone. I love this.

I like the new jet black. It’s shiny, and shiny is always good. And as much as I am excited about the launch, this is one thing you’ll never see me do.

I’ll either wait a few days after it has released or go to a store that won’t have people standing in line for hours just to get it.
From Great Music to Sell Outs
You may not know who the Band Perry is, but if you do, it’s likely because of this terrible song or some other terrible song on their most recent album. This is “We’re Going to Live Forever” and is perfect display of the awful version of Country Pop that is so prevalent today.
Now, The Band Perry didn’t start off this way, which makes this turn to whatever they are now so disappointing. When they first started, they actually made good music. And I still go back to it on occasion.
If you aren’t aware of that, then let me point you to some of their early work. This was refreshing to come from a group that was young and talented. It didn’t appear they were trying to chase the money that comes with fame and stardom. Sadly, it didn’t take them long to do exactly what was expected of them.
That’s the links for this morning. Hope you enjoyed them.
