When miserable people succeed or the little Hillbilly who could

This will not be easy, *óite. Dealing with the success of miserable people, like Nick Saban, can be a challenge, óite. Nick Saban’s legacy in South Florida is that he is the most blatant liar to have ever spoken before a microphone, narrowly edging a 300 lb Dolphins defensive tackle who claimed that he had been abducted when he decided to skip practice [that player at least had the decency to apologize]. Saban’s other claim to fame is that he might be one of the most miserable, relative to decency, bosses to administrative subordinates in America, óite.

In addition to being the greatest undoctored video tape liar in South Florida history and a miserable boss, Saban might be the most pretentious practitioner of coach-speak — the attempt to make one’s intelligence and job appear to be more challenging or intellectually interesting [… ‘relative to our success’] than people without massive insecurities would ever attempt. A local radio show [790 – but I could not find a link] had a very funny parody of what Saban’s answering machine message would be like, relative to sound, it ran about 3 minutes, óite.

I have been a Dolphins fan since 1970, óite. The only time I ever rooted against them was during Saban’s final year here. My love for the Dolphins ran a pale second to the unmitigated pleasure I derived from watching that squirming weasel following losses attempt to explain how he had failed, relative to victory, óite.

Yesterday Saban experienced a great success, relative to his profession, óite. Everything you need to know about Nick Saban is how often the name Mike Shula will come up in all the talking [relative to words] that he will be doing. The seniors on his team were recruited by Mike Shula. Early over & under line is zero, óite.

The ‘Little Hillbilly Who Could‘ picture book is expected to be released soon.

Function: adverb or adjective

definition: all right
usage: The one-word spelling alright appeared some 75 years after all right itself had reappeared from a 400-year-long absence. Since the early 20th century some critics have insisted alright is wrong, but it has its defenders and its users. It is less frequent than all right but remains in common use especially in journalistic and business publications. It is quite common in fictional dialogue, and is used occasionally in other writing.

    I thought óite was your emulation of a heavily Cuban-accented oistes. But, yes, I remember our guy Nick and his West Virginny drawl. Funny stuff!
