Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, May 2, 2017

  • There are a handful of fathers who show up at their sons’ tee-ball and baseball games wearing a sportcoat. I understand driving straight from work to the game, but they could leave the sportcoat in the car.
  • I think the condos next to the fields where BoyGeeding plays his games has a bit of a Camden Yard appeal.
  • I can confirm that the retired NFL lineman in the neighborhood will not be an assistant coach with the Cowboys, as I incorrectly predicted. When I checked the mail yesterday I spoke with him as he was loading up a cattle trailer full of his and his wife’s belongings. They’ll be moving to Wisconsin. Per his words, “I love it and all, but it’s too hot here in Texas.” He certainly could afford to hire movers, but as I’ve learned, he likes to do a lot of things himself. For the life of me, I can’t believe I forgot to ask him what he’s going to do post-retirement. But then again, I’m not used to talking to people younger than me about entering retirement.
  • My Fios Internet died midmorning, which is troublesome since all my work is done online from home. I couldn’t find anything about an outage by mobile device, so I spoke to that retired lineman again. Lucky for him, he had no issues. Instead of calling Frontier I decided to just direct Tweet them and was surprised at how quickly and professionally they responded. I think it’s actually a great way for customer support because I was able to send a few pics that answered a lot of basic questions.
  • Flower shop owner stole plants from cemetery for months, police say
  • While watching ‘Better Call Saul’, I was curious as to the ethnicity of Giancarlo Esposito, the actor who plays Gus Fring. I didn’t know the actor’s name until looking it up, but I couldn’t tell if he was of black or Spanish heritage. He was actually born in Copenhagen. “His mother was an African-American opera and nightclub singer from Alabama, and his father was an Italian stagehand and carpenter from Naples.”
