One must drink a shot every time Biden starts a sentence with "Look..." or says "Folks..."; or, Trump utters the word "horrible" or the phrase "many people are saying."

These are some of the biggest speech crutches of all time and both should cause voters to cringe.

In all seriousness, I do think we can expect some things.

The next day, CNN will run a fact check of Trump, minimally of Biden. Fox will run footage of Biden stuttering or stumbling through sentences, both selling the narrative their viewership wants to hear.

I do find it odd that Trump's campaign is working to set such low expectations for Biden, that's an unusual strategy. As long as he makes it reasonably through it for two hours, that will defeat that narrative.

I do see recent commercials from the Biden camp now really focusing on Trump's character and so I assume that will be Biden's main attack at least in the first debate next week. I'm just not sure how effective that will be for any undecideds. At best it might serve to reduce some turnout amongst conservatives who still care about character, but it seems to me most likely those folks have already either drifted to Kennedy or just won't vote. Hard to see the debates make a difference on that.

We'd be drunk after 30 minutes and out of liquor at an hour.

I have been posting on this board for a long time now. LG has finally posted a thread that is worth a damn. You have earned the respect from Rupert Pepperjax.
LG has been around for almost 20 years.

Freak has a thread in the FF about how people outside of TN, didn't attend UT, etc became Vol fans.

How and why did you find your way to VN, in 2005?

If you want to increase the chances of intoxication, just chug a beer or shot every time Trump mentions, "the best we've ever seen or never been done before."

Joe? "White supremacy is the greatest threat to this country."

Checked my profile and says I've been a member since August, 2005, so not quite 20 years. I have no memory of how that all started, and I can only guess that I saw a link to it in some Gator forum and logged on to talk football and it spiraled (out of control) from there. I am an older guy, 60, and absolutely do take pride in SEC kinship. I know not everyone does, but I always have and always will.

The two sources of that are, first, the fact that I must under the state's constitution hate FSU. They were independent forever, so there was no identity of cohorts for them, really. Maybe Notre Dame. But then they joined the ACC and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching that conference, despite a few bright shining moments, essentially flounder.

Second, when I was an undergrad at UF we all anxiously awaited the football magazines, usually came out in mid to late August, and they did an excellent job of explaining which players and games would tell the tale in the upcoming SEC race, not to mention how the champ would figure in the national chase, or in the big bowl games. I candidly admit that I miss that.

So, while I will not root for UT when they play Florida, that's one day a year out of 365. (I don't count basketball or baseball because the consequence of a loss in those arenas is usually de minimis and so I am not as vested as in football.) And I am always rooting for SEC teams in the NCAA basketball tournament.

All in all, its just flat out an entertaining place to be. I find the FF fans to by and large be more sane than UF football fans. I think for whatever reason the Gator board attracts more recent students, who do not appreciate the ever-swinging pendulum of SEC strength and weakness for a given team. They'll learn.
