Right on cue, the day after mentioning The Mircale of Roy in the Log, we had an actual Roy sighting yesterday. We were behind a bright blue Mustang convertible with Titans license plates and a UT sticker. We still weren't sure it was him until we saw the driver was wearing one red glove. We tried to ask if he was going to be on bass this fall but he sped off.
Rob and Kirly's "other" band is headlining the Full-Moon Picking Party for Warner Parks this Saturday:

If you haven't been able to decide on a personal cup you may want to consider a fresh new idea coming out of Knoxville called butt chugging. Our in-house engineer, Phil, has developed a variation of the system just for river travel, where the tube runs through the drain hole in a canoe seat, freeing the canoeists hands for paddling. Since Roy's a UT man, maybe this will finally get him to commit to the Fall Trip.
Tennessee frat suspended following ‘butt chugging’
By Jenna Johnson
Early Saturday morning, an unresponsive University of Tennessee student was dropped off at a medical center with a blood alcohol content that local police say was “well over .40,” the point at which death can occur. How did the 20-year-old student get that dangerously drunk?
Campus police went to the student’s fraternity house, Pi Kappa Alpha (aka Pike), to find out. They found several males intoxicated or passed out — and this scene, as described by a Knoxville police spokesman in a Monday statement that was obtained by The Post: “Upon extensive questioning it is believed that members of the fraternity were utilizing rubber tubing inserted into their rectums as a conduit for alcohol as the abundance of capillaries and blood vessels present greatly heightens the level and speed of the alcohol entering the blood stream as it bypasses the filtering by the liver.”
The act of getting wasted in that way is also referred to as “butt chugging,” “alcohol enema” and, well, “completely idiotic.”
The Knoxville News Sentinel reported that campus police also found “bags from wine boxes, some empty and some partially empty, strewn across the halls and rooms.” Gawker has since posed the question: “White or red, do you think?”
Earlier this week, the university and Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity administratively suspended the chapter for 30 days, pending an investigation into the allegations. In a statement on Tuesday, a top Pike official deemed this an “unfortunate, isolated incident” involving “a small group of individuals.” He added that the incident “is an opportunity to increase the public’s awareness of what appears to be an unfortunate and extremely dangerous practice by some young people today.”
