Dream-Casting a Live-Action Little Mermaid for Disney

Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

Jerry Bobby: SEC Football Power Rankings

Posted on by Jerry Bobby in Featured, Football, Guest Spots, Sports | Leave a comment

Well ladies and fellars, IT’S FOOTBALL TIME IN TENNESSEE! Please allow me to introduce myself as I understand that I am by far the oldest guest writer The Wise Guise has had. My name is Jerry Bobby and I am a proud native of Pidgeon Forge, TN. I was born on December 25, 1944, on a cold snowy night right outside of the barn on number seven at the old Gatlinburg Goonie Golf Course. My parents, Wilburn and Sissy, raised me as one of six children in God’s Country. I am blessed to have a beautiful wife named Betsy and I LOVE the Big Orange. When I’m not watching my Vols play, you can usually catch me up at Hardee’s eatin’ some of Ms. Brenda’s warm biscuits. Me and the boys are always there if you’re ever passing through! Read more

Ole Missery: Thoughts from a Faithful Rebel (Part 3)

Posted on by Warner Russell in Featured, Football, Sports | Leave a comment

I plan on being in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium this Saturday 45 minutes before the kick-off of the Ole Miss game against Central Arkansas. Those moments before the first game are some of the most fun moments, not just football moments, but any moments, of the year for me. At this point there is still that chance, albeit miniscule, that something miraculous could happen and our season could be a success. There is still hope before the season opener begins. Read more

Given the success of our first couple round table discussions here at The Wise Guise (The Emmys Nominations discussion & the debate about The Olympics), we thought it’d be fun to get the regular contributors together, along with some of our newest contributors to the blog, to preview the college football season.  At various stages in the e-mail thread, other friends of The Wise Guise were added. Chaos, hilarity, and occasional insight ensued. Enjoy!

Ole Missery: Thoughts from a Faithful Rebel (Part 2)

Posted on by Warner Russell in Featured, Football, Sports | 1 Comment

The beginning of my senior year of college was once again plagued with unbridled optimism when it came to Ole Miss Football. We had Houston Dale Nutt calling the plays and Jevan “Just got a DUI” Snead chunking the rock. This was finally our year to at least have a winning season and go to a bowl game.

After a few “nothing to write home about” wins and losses, we decided to go to The Swamp and turn Tim Tebow into the legend that he now is by beating the snot out of him. Greg Hardy’s image graced the cover of Sports Illustrated taking Tebow down, and people started talking about us. Read more

I’m Back… with my own twist of a Mailbag Post!

I know, I know, I know. There aren’t that many of you out there who have been checking the site daily, constantly disappointed in the lack of a new post from me.  The only one’s who have been disappointed are my fellow Wise Guise, who have realized my 2 to 4 posts a week this summer have kept the site flowing with new content daily.  But I’m back, baby! And, as I thought about what to write for my first post back and all that has happened since my last post, I realized there was only one thing to do: MAILBAG POST!
