After watching the series finale of ‘Breaking Bad’ at the end of September and admiring how much Walter White grew his beard and just kind of let himself go, that’s when I stopped shaving and keep an ungroomed beard.
We keep a childlock on our halfbath downstairs because BoyGeeding will go in and leave the faucet running, and when DaughterGeeding needs to go she’ll ask us to open the door for her. Yesterday I found her using the toilet in our masterbath, something she never does. When asked, she said she saw us enjoying the football game and didn’t want us to miss any of it.
I caught the the latest episode of ‘Sherlock’ and it is fantastic, I may have watched it five times now. I’m not going to give anything away, but there’s a bit of a reunion show feeling at parts, the chemistry is better than ever, and it will meet all fan expectations. If you haven’t caught the mini-episode that doesn’t spoil anything for the first episode of the third season, you can watch it here. I won’t post any links/videos now until the show officially airs in the U.S., but the people behind the show threw out some great red herrings.
The Longhorns have a new coach in Charlie Strong and I’m sure there will be a play on his name and the university that will turn into a beating, things like Texas Strong and The University of Texas Stronghorns.
I think there are a lot of similarities with the Strong hire and when Mack Brown was first hired, the major being that both came from schools with a strong basketball tradition in which football was basically an after thought, and turned their football programs into ranked bowl eligible teams. Overall I think it was a smart hire, that it’s better to hire someone unproven (like no championships on their resume) who will feel driven and pushed by the pressure to excel, and those kind of guys stick around for a while if successful. For the critics that are concerned he’s at a major disadvantage with recruiting, I’m sure Coach February will be more than happy to help him out in one fashion or another as he’s still on the payroll. But I wonder if Texas has learned their lesson that they can’t expect their coach to be at two places at once, coaching and among the media.
AT&T Stadium will host the NCAA Final Four and the new NCAA Championship Football game within nine months of each other. I bet Dallas County wish they could have a do-over and try to woo Jerry all over again when he wanted to build in Fair Park.
I thought the Philadelphia Eagles would play sub par this year and Chip Kelly would end up drafting Johnny Manziel to fit his kind of offense, but it looks like the Eagles have their quarterback f
I was watching the ‘Michael J. Fox Show’ and it was a bit weird seeing Malcolm Jamal Warner as a guest star.
The ‘Mythbusters’ Star Wars episode was better than expected.
Utah is trying to end homelessness by 2015 – Utah calculated the annual cost of E.R. visits and jail stays for an average homeless person was $16,670, while the cost of providing an apartment and social worker would be $11,000. Each participant works with a caseworker to become self-sufficient.
