The NTTA tolltag use to be a thick plastic credit card sized object that you would affix to your windshield, and then they moved to an ugly stick with a bright orange circle and back T. But now you can get one in the form of a Dallas Cowboys star, which I think is pretty cool.
WifeGeeding had a friend that had one of those thick plastic credit card tolltags that was applied to the windshield with velcrow. One day she got her car serviced and someone switched the guts of her tolltag and ran up a lot of charges, so I guess that’s one reason they went with the sticker.
In Peter King’s MMQB, he mentions how Gene Sterator reffed two NCAA men’s basketball games last night and capped it off by reffing an NFL playoff game. I always thought a ref not only stayed within one sport, but was surprised to find out they do both college and pro games. Quite fascinating, he must like being yelled at a lot, or just has a wife he want’s to get away from.
With the last name Geeding, I can have some fun with the initials of our son who is scheduled to arrive next month. For instance, if I chose a name like Brett Albert, then his initials would be B.A.G. and a homage to this website. But trust me, Franklin Albert is not a possibility.
In case you ever wondered, the first post of the day is usually “Bag of Randomness” at 5:00 AM and then I schedule other posts randomly for the next half hour, and if I find something good later in the day, I’ll post it immediately, but usually I save material for the next day.
I’ve always thought the idea of going on a cruise would be horrific because I fear the ocean too much and I’m a bit claustrophobic and hate crowds. This latest event has only convinced me even more to never go on a cruise, and I don’t care what anyone says about how relaxing and cost effective it is.
In case you were wondering, the ship that ran around, the Costa Concordia, is 952 ft in length. The RMS Titanic is/was 882 ft 9 in.
I’ve never bought anything from Zappos.com.
I caught a little bit of that new “Alcatraz” show in Fox, and I think it’s got some potential. But I can’t help but notice that Jorge Garcia is always linked to a show that showcases an island.
