Mo's Manic Monday - One

Posted: Monday, January 07, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to another Manic Monday with Morgen. Don't forget to cruise by MM HQ at It's A Blog Eat Blog World. Today's theme is One.

I could have written another sports post today. Tonight is the BCS Championship game between Ohio State and LSU. The NCAA would have us believe that the winner is the national champion of college football, thus making then the number one team.

Since I disagree with that premise, I'm not writing about that.

Instead, I'm sharing one of my favorite songs from Three Dog Night.

    Three Dog Night does ONE...LOL
    Thanks for not doing sport...Sports gives me the cobbywobbles...don't understand sports...Happy MM!

  1. I like the song better than the sports ANY DAY! :)

    Great job on this one, Trav.

    Happy MM.

  1. Hey Trav - I used a song called One too. Small world, huh?


  1. This song brings back memories.

    And, yes, you KNOW which team this household will be cheering for - THE Ohio State University. GO BUCKS!

    I liked Three Dog Night back in the day. "One" was a great song, however, I was more of a Creedance Clearwater Revival fan and still buy John Fogerty albums. I happen to be listening to "Blue Moon Swamp" right now.

  1. Gattina says:

    The song is nice, I never heard it !

  1. Roger says:

    Good tune Travis! I am going to sing that to myself tonight lol!

  1. Harlekwin says:

    This is my first time here. I take it you write about sports... a lot. Looks like this was my lucky day to come visit.

    I posted a song too, but not the same one.

    Happy MM!!

  1. Matt-Man says:

    I hope LSU wins 73-0. I loathe the Buckeyes. Cheers!!

  1. TopChamp says:

    I like that song. Can't comment on the sport of course. I had not heard this before - thanks Travis.

  1. Dr. A says:

    I linked to you today. I don't want to start you on your rant, but I think there will be peace in the middle east before there is agreement on how to determine the national champion in college football - Not gonna happen.

    No one will fully agree on a playoff system. The "plus-one" game that is being talked about won't get agreement either. The BCS in college football is like the electoral college in presidential elections - it's not perfect, but I can't think of anything better....

    Three Dog Night are always singular.

  1. this is a good one trev

  1. the teach says:

    Of course, a great song! Giants won yesterday!!! On to to the 2nd!

  1. the108 says:

    I love this

  1. Akelamalu says:

    I love that song, thanks for reminding me. :)

  1. Julie says:

    Great minds huh baby? *hugs*

  1. Mags says:

    Good one Trav! Happy MM..

  1. This post reminds me just how happy I am not to live near New Orleans anymore (but Geaux Tigers, anyway. ;)

  1. Sanni says:

    "One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
    Two can be as bad as one
    It's the loneliest number since the number one" *sigh* Soooooo many memories - thanks, Trav!

  1. Travis says:

    Lois: But I wubs my sports! And there's only a few more weeks of football to write about on the weekend. Oh - Dance Wars starts tonight!!

    CWM: Thank you dear! I'm hoping Dance Wars is worth writing reviews.

    Ian: I'll be over shortly.

    Songbird: I am rooting for OSU because I just can't stand the thought of a 2-loss BCS champion.

    Drilleraa: I'm a CCR fan as well. I love the music from that era.

    Gattina: Glad I could share something new with you!

    Harlekwin: Welcome!

    Matt: But dude! LSU has 2 losses!

    Doc: I hate the idea of a "plus one" game. I say seed all conference champions plus the best independent and play a tournament.

    Jamie: Nice word play there!

  1. Travis says:

    Sarge: One of the best for me!

    Teach: Will you forgive me for picking the Bucs?

    Kyra: This song rawks!

    Akelamalu: You are most welcome.

    Julie: Yeppers!

    Mags: And to you dear!

    Lana: It's gonna be a wild and wacky night down their.

    Sanni: For me too!

  1. Bond says:

    AH yes... you, Julie and I...all sharing one brain...

    and it still ain't too crowded in there!


  1. Dana says:

    Deja vu...again...and again...hehe!

  1. You did not post about sports.
    There is a God.

  1. Travis says:

    V: LOL! I think we can easily fit several more hoochies and hotties in there.

    Dana: And again!

    Mimi: Well, you have this dungeon thingy and I have a cold.
