Supersonic Orangeness

Oh yeah. This rocks. The F-106 Delta Dart. Very cool and, in this paint scheme, very Orange. Not Tennessee Orange, but that's OK sometimes. Especially this time. 

This photo was posted by Military Aviation Archives via its Facebook page. It's highly recommended that everyone follow/like this page.

BTW, visit for everything you want to know about the 106. Oh, and enjoy your holidays and stuff.

O Tannenbaum or O-Train?

This Genesee & Wyoming Inc. engine was spotted by the BOVB's intrepid Nassau County correspondent at the Belfast Commerce Center in Richmond Hill, Ga. (Yet more proof that Georgians do have a bad case of Orange envy.) It is presented to you as a gift of Christmas cheer.

For an additional dose of cheer check out this Peanuts video of "O Tannenbaum" (that's the German version of "O Christmas Tree").

Merry Christmas, Orange Nation.

Goofy vehicle

I saw this goofy little snow plow thing somewhere on Facebook or something and just  HAD to have it for the blog. Check it out, it even has snow chains on the back tires. Too funny.

The second coming of...Peyton

So Tennessee finally finds someone willing to coach its football team and some people apparently are excited.

Don't be.

The dude from the University of Cincinnati has neither the brains nor the stones to lead Tennessee to the promised land. Unlike the awesome U.S. Coast Guard HH-60 Jayhawk pictured below in its Orange-and-White awesomeness, Mr. Jones is not equipped to save us.

And he also has prophecy working against him -- that of the Second Coming of Peyton Manning.

Soon as Peyton wins his next Super Bowl -- this season, hopefully -- he will retire from the NFL to lead Rocky Top to the ultimate achievement in all of college football: the SEC championship!

Fear ye not, my Big Orange Brethren, the temporary visitation of Butch Jones. For there is one coming the laces of whose footballs we are unworthy to throw. And he shall indeed deliver the Tennessee Volunteers unto football glorrrrr-ay for several years to come! (And this time, hopefully, he'll figure out a way to beat Florida). Hallelujah!

Uh Orange axmodent

Saw this here on SR or US 109 (who cares?) near Nashville on Nov. 28. The Orange thing had come off the trailer and blocked traffic for a while. We all got over it and moved along.
