- I’ve never wanted a mug so much in my life.
- My favorite cereal is Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch. However, it was recalled back in November due to a potential presence of salmonella. I haven’t been able to find it on shelves since and I’m going through withdrawals. The company did answer my tweet asking for an ETA, but they didn’t provide an ETA. In the meanwhile, I’ve supplemented my cereal intake with Honey Combs and Golden Grahams.
- I’ve only had milk with my cereal once in my life. It happened a Saturday morning during a ‘Super Friends’ commercial break in which I saw some kid do it, it may have been Mikey. I simply have never been a fan of milk, even as a child. I thought it was weird drinking any bodily fluids, but my taste buds reasoned ice cream was perfectly fine.
- I never thought about it before, but it appears a lot of folks use Easy-Off oven cleaner to remove paint, decals, window tint, and other stuff.
- Is it unmasculine to sit with one foot tucked under the other leg? I do this often and probably causes poor spinal alignment. Usually, it’s the right foot tucked under the left thigh. This all came about after looking up Cal Ripken Jr. stats and landing on November 2009 post on a quilting message board.
- For you readers out of state, a lot of us Texans have been running our air conditioning units this week.
- Those Virginia state Democrats need to get this S together. Sheesh.
- I’ve really enjoyed watching the ESPN ’30 for 30′ on Deion Sanders, but still haven’t finished it. It’s always neat to look back on things with double the life experience and realize how my initial perceptions were mostly emotionally based and how I tried to discount his feat of playing two professional games in two different sports in a 24-hour period. So far, the coolest thing, which I never put together, was the time he was a Yankee and they played against the Royals and Bo Jackson. Both combined for four home runs. Bo hit three out of the park. Deion scored on an inside-the-park-homerun, which was almost stopped by a diving Bo Jackson who separated his left shoulder on the play. That’s so neat, how those two two-sport athletes were connected on such an amazing play.
- With former Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Wade Wilson passing away last week and this Deion Sanders ’30 for 30′, I’m reminded of a piece of advice Wilson gave Chan Gaily, at least I think it was Gaily. I can’t recall the player, he could have been on the roster or someone the team was thinking about getting, but the Cowboys were considering having him play both offense and defense, but Wilson said it wasn’t until Deion started to play receiver more often that the toe problems and injury started. At the time, I thought it was pretty insightful of Wilson.
- I also forgot how good Deion was in that 92 World Series. He had a team-high eight hits with 15 at-bats, a Series-high .533 batting average, and five steals on five attempts.
- In case you were wondering who was that girl in the NFL 100 Super Bowl commercial, it was Sam Gordon, a viral-video football star of a few years back.
- As a 9-year-old, she throttled the competition in an almost all-boys tackle league, scoring 35 touchdowns, amassing almost 2,000 rushing yards on 232 carries and, just to round out her game, making 65 tackles. She’s since worked with her father to help create an all-girls tackle league. At last year’s Super Bowl, she won the NFL’s first “Game Changer” award, honoring people who seek to move football forward.
- Cookie Monster did a Reddit Ask Me Anything yesterday to promote a chance to eat cookies with him and Oscar the Grouch in an effort to raise money for charity. I donated in hopes of winning, it’s always been a dream to interact with Muppets. I thought this was his most creative and funny answer to a question.
- The main child actors of ‘The Wonder Years’ had a reunion yesterday. I always got a kick out of that urban legend that the child actor who played “Paul” grew up to be Maryiln Manson.
I got to see these guys for lunch yesterday – it was so much fun to catch up and hear how their beautiful families are doing! ❤ And yes, @joshsaviano, I totally agree – *you guys* are like family… I mean, we DID grow up together, after all. 😍 #memories #TheWonderYears pic.twitter.com/X1xVjVSs6T
