- Gather corks and lamp finials from a craft store (you know, those things that go on top of the lampshade).
- Secure to the top of each cork with a dab of Liquid Nails.
- Allow adhesive to try for a w-h-i-l-e.

Southern Football's Dating Game
Published in the Wall Street Journal on Friday, November 13, 2009
Each Sunday, Peyton Alsobrook, a 19-year-old freshman at Auburn University, gets together with his Alpha Tau Omega fraternity brothers to compare notes on the women they take on dates to Saturday football games.
Those who seem bored are eliminated from further consideration, he says, along with any who might talk too much during a close game "because they're from up North or something." As the all-important Alabama game approaches, Mr. Alsobrook says he's narrowed his list of potential dates to four. The winner, he says, will get a coveted ticket to the big game and, beyond that, special treatment that might include candy or even "actual flowers."
