Just like when Jake Gyllenhaal's cowboy character says to Heath Ledger, "I wish I knew how to quit you." in the movie "Brokeback Mountain", it seems like U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R- Alabama) can't take Lubbock out of his review mirror.

Saturday afternoon, the managing editor of our websites received an e-mail from YouTube. A short video commentary recorded by Wes Nessman from over four years ago (in May 2017) had been taken off of YouTube for violating community standards.

From what we gathered, someone connected to Tuberville, or maybe even Tuberville himself, thought Wes' video was "harassment" and "cyberbullying" when the complaint was made to YouTube.

Never mind the fact that Tuberville talked smack first, four years ago.  I guess the people connected to Tuberville completely forgot about the 'bombs' the former Texas Tech coach lobbed at Lubbock.

Before Tuberville tried to remake his image into that of a conservative elder statesman, and ally of Donald Trump, he was still trying to be hip with the SEC Football community in 2017. In an interview on the "Rick & Bubba Show" Tuberville lamented his three seasons at Texas Tech and said Lubbock was comparable to "Iraq".

"You run me off at Auburn and you ship me to Lubbock, Texas," Tuberville said on the show. "I'm going to tell you what, that's like going to Siberia. Somebody asked me, 'What's Lubbock look like?' It looked like Iraq," Tommy Tuberville, May 2017.

So, to recap, Tuberville smack talks Lubbock when he's out of a job. Then four years later, when he becomes "a someone" again, somebody possibly connected to him gets offended by a video recorded by a radio host in Lubbock. Sure, the video dropped an F-bomb or two, but that's nothing a former college football coach hasn't heard or said before.

Frankly, I think U.S. Senators should be worrying about more pressing matters. Taxes, inflation, illegal immigration; not YouTube videos from four years ago. I would link to the video in question, but it's already been taken offline.

Lubbock, Texas still in Tommy Tuberville's rearview mirror.

This list is by no means complete, it's just some names I've seen circulating on social media and message boards. Along with the usual suspects, I've added some wild cards to make it a little spicier.

This is a list I've come up with, but the first several names on this list have definitely been contacted and could be potential hires.

Here Are 13 of Your Favorite Fried Foods

Some foods need a fryer, others should never go near one. Forget baking. We are so obsessed with eating deep-fat fried foods. And every time you turn around, there's another menu filled with most of the items that have bathed in a hot-boiling fat vat.

There seems to be no end to what a deep fat fryer can cook. And we prove it every day with our love of crispy, greasy, burnt-tongue, salty foods.

I won't argue that an order of onion rings or sweet potato fries is the best marriage partner to a burger. Especially when they are made from scratch. So, pile them high.

What are some other delights that need the fryer?
