I’m not so much a Duke fan as I’m a Coach K fan, so you can throw all the Duke hatred at me that you want. I think most of America would be lying if they wouldn’t have him in their top two list to coach either their college team or Team USA.
Lots of personal items, such as pocket knives and other stuff, get confiscated at airport security or TSA. The post office should set up some sort of kiosk or small location near airport security so people can mail those items back to themselves and not have to lose them, and in turn, make a few bucks.
BoyGeeding is now old enough to use a urinal and it’s actually kinda fun taking him to the restroom. He calls the urinal the “big boy toilet” and when he finds one that’s set lower to the floor, he always says, “Daddy, it’s just my size!” which makes me smile everytime.
DaughterGeeding attended her second Taekwondo lesson yesterday, so I now feel safer in the house. After the lesson I took both her and her brother for ice cream. BoyGeeding finished early and went to play and his sister stayed with me eating. When the ice cream was just about finished, DaughterGeeding yelled at the top of her lungs, “BROTHERGEEDING! BROTHERGEEDING! Do you want the last bite?” I wish the smile that appeared on my face could have been recorded.
The Spike channel seems to have a real hit with their now celebrity show ‘Lip Sync Battle‘, at least by judging how the mention of the show on social media. Here’s their YouTube channel if you are interested in clips.
I had to look up the reason for why the NCAA is using a raised basketball floor. Basically, for large arenas or stadiums, it’s a better viewing experience for the fans and you can fit in more seats.

@darrenrovell: Coach K has been the head coach of Duke for 51.4% of his life
When the Duke players were cutting down the nets, I noticed each had their own pair of golden scissors, which made me wonder how long this has been a thing. After a little research, I found that Fiskars (U.S. headquarters is in Madison, Wisconsin, ouch!) is the Official Net-Cutting Scissors of NCAA® Championships for this year. But per this article it seems to have been going on for a while – Fiskars, for seven years now the official net-cutting scissors of the NCAA tournament. The company has serrated, gold titanium blades etched with the NCAA logo. The bad news is, while the winning teams get to keep them, you can’t actually buy them.
Something for those of you that watched the ‘Better Call Saul’ season finale – YouTube – To be honest, I was disappointed in the finale compared to the prior episode, which would have been a better finale.
