    The composer of Hey Look Me Over/Hey Fightin' Tigers was interviewed a few years ago and said he gets more royalties from Hey Fightin' Tigers than the original. Every time it is performed on TV, ASCAP sends him a few bucks.

    You've got a point, BengalB. And it's right on the top of your head.

    So your head must be just as pointed since you did the same thing I just did. Posted and then deleted some smack about Auburn after realizing we were watching last years game during the Arkansas - Alabama rain delay.

    :D :shock: :dis:
