Bag of Randomness

  • CBS, this should have been done long ago: CBS hopes to neutralize NFL runovers by pushing prime-time lineup back a half-hour on doubleheader Sundays
  • However, I didn’t know that you could sign up for alerts on the CBS website so that when football goes over, they will alert you as to when your show will actually start.
  • Texas will have its first congressional debate to be conducted in Spanish.
  • Yesterday I was contacted by a writer of the “Today Show’s” Bites (Food) website to use something they found on BagOfNothing.com.  Eventually you’ll see this little website referenced here.
  • In late April a U2 Conference will be held at the Rock in Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.  Being a huge U2 fan, I’d love to attend, and being a huge NFL fan, I’ve always wanted to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame that’s about an hour away from Cleveland in Canton.  This might just be a trip worth exploring.
  • I haven’t seen Sean Connery in a while, but he was at the US Open and looked good.  I wish the man would come out of retirement.  He’s 82 in case you were wondering.
  • Jane Fonda pulls off a decent looking Nancy Reagan in the upcoming movie The Butler. Actually, the cast looks pretty impressive.
  • Rubik’s Cube for the blind
