A good friend gave me a Bill Parcells book to read. In the first chapter he states that Tom Landy was the best clock management coach in the history of the NFL. Jason Garrett is one of the worst. The moment I saw that Belichick was going to punt to ball with about four minutes left in the game, I just knew Garrett was going to blow it by not running enough time off the clock.
It’s great seeing the Rangers go back to back World Series, and I had to wait all my life for my home town team to do such a thing. ToddlerGeeding, on the other hand, has seen her hometown go to the World Series every year of her life.
I bet the new season of Mad Men will focus a lot on the early marriage of Don and Betty Draper. Since January Jones was pregnant during shooting, I have a feeling the writers took advantage of that situation.
Speaking of AMC programming, The Walking Dead had their season premiere last night, and while I enjoyed it, the sound effects were a little over the top.
I shed a tear when I heard Whataburger is no longer going to use the voice of the Whataburger guy. Why isn’t there an online petition to reinstate him anywhere on the web? Outrage, I tell ya. Outrage.
While reading about the 1985 Chicago Bears trip to the White House (they didn’t attend when they actually won because of the Space Shuttle Challenger tragedy) I forgot that Jim McMahon got to visit the White House when he was a back up QB for the Packers. What I didn’t know was that on that trip, instead of wearing his Packers jersey, he wore his 85 Bears uniform. Of course that upset a lot of Packer fans since that’s their main rival, but he wanted to the Bears jersey as a way of support his old team.
I think my fellow blogging friend Andy and I are cut from the same cloth, but he’s a better writer than I am when it comes to things regarding our faith and our liberally leanings. He most recently had some great words about the whole Occupy Wall Street thing, give it a read here.
By law, the White House must fly Old Glory 24-hours a day. Can you name the other places? Answer (A PBS source if you need it)
I found that flag fact because WifeGeeding told me that the flag is only flown when the president is in D.C. and I didn’t believe her, although that is true for the Queen of England and the Union Jack at Buckingham Palace.
Larry Hagman turned 80 last month and just announced he has cancer.
