Weekend Review

In case you are interested:


  • I thought I would treat sisterGeeding to a nice dinner and decided to take her to Fogo de Chao.  When I called for reservations, they asked for a last name.  I told them “Geeding, G as in golf, E as in echo, E as in echo, D as in Delta, ING.  Just like feeding except with a G.”  When I get there my reservation was under ‘Beeding.’  When it comes to my last name, I will never win.  Greeding, Geddings, Geddie . . . Que Será Será

    Not only did I glutten there, but the next day MomGeeding wanted to go to Babe’s Chicken to eat on Saturday.  I’m stuffed!
  • I woke up a tad bit early on Saturday and thought I would go to the mall and buy some new clothes since this is the tax free weekend here in Texas.  I never really was much for taking advantage of this event and saving 8%, but I guess every little bit will help; not to mention I had a Dillards gift certificate.  I walked around and found nothing I liked, and then decided to go to Wal-Mart to pic up something for MomGeeding.  Turns out I bought two shirts there. 

    This event would have never happened ten years ago as shopping for clothes at Wal-Mart was a no-no.  Either Wal-Mart has gotten better with the style of clothes, or I’m just getting older and I no longer have ‘hip’ taste.  Oh, then I also bought three shirts at Target.  Either way, this is the first sign this week that I’m old.

  • I had to teach Sunday school, I feel I’m not gifted in this area, and have a feeling it didn’t go very well.  Others may have felt it went fine, but I think I could have done better.
  • Yet another sign of aging part 2:
    Watching the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions is starting to mean a little more to this football fan.  Troy Aikman is probably the first person I remember watching the NFL Draft for, I watched his entire career, and now I’m seeing him inducted.
  • Yet another sign of aging part 3:
    I’m told those entering college this year, those that are 18 years old, were born in 1988.
  • Rayfield Wright’s speech inspired me, and I totally loved how he delivered it.  It sounded more like a sermon, and I was impressed with the person (Stan Lomax) that was introducing him as well.  Several things stood out: 

    – Trusting and respecting his elders, as well as Tom Landry.
    - His humblness.
    – How he thanked the Dallas Morning News writer that spearheaded his nomination.
    The way he pointed out Bob Hayes and Harvey Martin should be inducted. (Let’s not forget about Drew Pearson)
    – “God knows I’m not a saint, but I am a Dallas Cowboy!”

  • I’m not complaining, but there was a lot of U2 being played regarding the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The NFL Network was playing ‘Beautiful Day’ during a lot of their coverage.  When NBC started their first NFL broadcast in years U2 was in the background.  Speaking of which, I really liked how the arranged for the Hall of Famers to be introduced at the beginning, midfield, with both teams lined up.  Oh, and after the introductions, U2’s ‘All Becasue of You’ was being played at the stadium. 

    And one more thought about NBC, I think they are going to do a great job with their NFL presentation.
