A Flair for the Game: Mississippi State

Our sport takes the show on the road this weekend, coming to Davis-Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi. Here to talk about the big to show, world heavyweight champion, Nature Boy Ric Flair.

I tell ya, right now, the Southeastern Conference is what's happening in big time sports. Bright lights, big cities, but we're in demand ALL OVER. Even in middle of nowhere like STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI.

You see this suit? $4,000. Armani. New York City. And no, Mississippi State fans, it does not come in camo. The closet this suit came out of, is bigger than the whole town Starkville. They don't like the Nature Boy there. They don't like it that I was born with a golden spoon in my mouth! They don't like it that I drive into town in a car that costs more than their neighborhood! And they HATE it, that every time I leave there's a line of piney woods princesses trailin' after me, just BEGGIN' because they want one last ride. Up and down and up and down and up and down WOOOOO! All those backroads in the champ's Porsche 911 Turbo! PLEADIN' WITH ME "Slick Ric! Take us away from all this! Show us the finer things in life! Don't send us back to the trailer park!"

Listen to me right here, Mississippi State. The Nature Boy doesn't know what the inside of a trailer park looks like, and he's NOT ABOUT TO FIND OUT. I come to town, I put on my show, I style and profile! WOOOOO! And I come home, to my 5,000-square foot house and my king-sized bed and 400-thread count sheets. I sleep like a baby too, WOOOOOOOOOOO!
