For unknown reasons, my mother-in-law always wanted a pet goat. Yesterday, for an early Easter present, her husband presented her with two.
Before I even married, I always thought it would be cool to build stuff with Lincoln Logs with my kids. Yesterday, that became a reality.
A friend and I figured out why we haven’t been watching much March Madness and why we prefer pro sports over college – the college kids leave early and there’s no connection to them like there used to be when they stayed all four years. We used Peyton Manning as an example. He went through all those years in Indianapolis never being able to win a playoff game, and then never being able to beat the Patriots, so there was a compelling story of him overcoming all these obstacles over the years and then finally winning it all. He then has neck surgery and is cut from Indy, and the story of going to the Broncos and his health was something to connect with. Sadly, for college, we really only get to follow a player for two years, three if we are lucky.
I’ve never tried the AMC two-screen experience where you sync the show to an app or something online, it seems rather than enhancing my experience it would just distract me.
I guess television stations no longer sign-off at the end of the night with the national anthem playing. I’d catch it all the time when I lived in Abilene.
Paul Reubens is having another career surge it seems. Netflix recently resurrected Pee Wee Herman and last night he was a guest star on ‘Gotham’.
Possible ‘Better Call Saul’ spoiler – If you like to link colors and their meaning to the characters, Kim Wexler was wearing a lot of purple last night, a sign she’s being mislead. And the show could also be titled ‘Mike Arrived in Alberqurque’ because his storyline is just as good if not better.
