I’m not sure why I was issued those shoulder pads, they were way too big. Parents really disliked those jerseys, the black lettering made it hard to read numbers from the stands. Luckily, I was mostly on the bench, pretty close to the stands, so everyone could see my numbers.
In April of 2015, I set a goal to lose 40lbs and weigh 200lbs by the end of August 2015. I ended up being about 22lbs short of that goal but thought I’d do it by the end of August 2016. I’m about 17lbs short of that goal.
I’ve never owned a bobblehead.
I just want to give Tony Romo a hug, but gently, don’t want to break him.
We ate on the patio at Kincaid’s Hamburgers and BoyGeeding thought he’d help one of their employees by opening the gate fence as made several trash hauls. Towards the end of our meal, that employee came by and gave BoyGeeding some ice cream as a thank-you. BoyGeeding even shared with his sister.
While waiting in line to get a refill of a drink an old man walked by me and reeked of Old Spice. He was trying to return his milkshake because it was too thick. I thought he could have waited a bit for it to thaw and loosen up, but at his age, he may not have time.
Albert Brooks is his stage name, his actual birth name is Albert Einstein.
His brother, Bob Einstein, is “Super Dave Osborne”.
I thought Texas high school football was a big deal thirty years ago, but I’m astonished at how it gets bigger and bigger each year. I knew Southlake takes their football seriously, but had no idea that a luxury car dealership advertises their cars at the game by parking them near the end zones.
It was the first week of high school football and I noticed local teams were playing opponents from Oklahoma and Alabama. I can understand cities near state borders playing out of state teams, but I don’t understand why a school would travel past a boarding state just to play a football game. I guess there might be a financial incentive involved, and if there isn’t, that’s probably not a good use of taxpayer dollars.
Every time ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ starts I always wonder if someone will be subbing for host Charles Osgood and starting things off the sad news of his passing. The man is pushing 84. On yesterday’s broadcast, he announced his upcoming retirement in September, but will still do a handful of segments. I love the guy. He’s the grandfather I never had, very calming, reassuring, charming in that old man kind of way, and has a great voice. I expect either Lee Cowen, Anthony Mason, or Jane Pauley to take his place. I always got a kick out of the news of Osgood’s predecessor and the show’s original host, Charles Kuralt, having a second “shadow” family.
I was watching the preseason football game between the Vikings and the Chargers to check out their new stadium, which I actually like more than AT&T Stadium because it has a clear roof, the largest in the world, among other things. But Fox kept showing commercials with Skip Bayless that I had to switch channels.
One thing I enjoyed about watching Viking games was the Viking horn that sounded after a touchdown. Yesterday I noticed Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” was played after a touchdown.
I always thought the Vikings should have an outdoor stadium and play in the cold like Green Bay and use it as home field advantage.
Americans between 18 to 24 are largely snubbing the old-fashioned bar of soap, leading to sales declines for the likes of Ivory’s iconic 125-year old bar and its bar soap rivals, according to new data from consumer research firm Mintel. Consumers who still buy bar soap, it turns out, have something in common: they tend to be over 60 years old and are men. Millennials believe bar soaps are covered in germs after they are used.
I think like a Millennial, but vastly prefer using a bar of soap in the shower, just not at the sink.
The scene in that Netflix Tony Robbins documentary of him jumping in that 57° pool every morning has stuck with me. Not to the extent that I’ve bought my own 57° pool, but I now end each shower turning the hot water off and then counting to sixty. It gives me a boost of energy and I no longer suffer from that tiny bit of perspiration after drying off from a hot shower.
