For the record, and I want to be very clear and put things to rest. I am not a half-whit, I am half-white. Get it right, people.
When I first moved to DFW and moved into my own apartment, my first “big” purchase was the largest television I could find, a 35-inch Sony Trinitron (CRT, not HD). I finally got rid of the thing last weekend by taking it to Best Buy for recycling. They charged me $25 because it was over 25-inches. WifeGeeding has been begging me to get rid of it for years, but I was hesitant since it was upstairs and didn’t want to go through the hassle of transporting the awkward 139-pound behemoth. However, I felt up to the challenge after watching the latest Avengers movie. I’m an oddity in that I like the challenge of moving such objects with no help, usually when no one else is around. This was the first time I did such a thing after my spinal fusion surgery, but I managed and conquered the task. A hand truck (dolly) and a couple of straps greatly aided.
To my fellow TICKET listeners, I’m what you call a little slow. It never dawned on me that George DiGianni and the golf show which followed on Saturday mornings were nothing more than paid ads. I always thought The TICKET paid them, but in actuality, they were paying the radio station for air time.
Regarding the NFL Draft, I always wondered why the first handful of teams in the first round took so long to make their pick. I found out why in yesterday in Peter King’s weekly article. The NFL asks teams to not turn in their selection until at least five minutes of their 10-minute first-round time limit had passed, so the league could do the TV-presentation stuff and not get the picks all backed up.
Poet Sara Holbrook, who often writes humorous verse for kids, had some harsh words for the Texas Education Agency after she discovered she couldn’t answer questions about poems on the its standardized tests — poems she herself wrote.
No apologies, but this is going to be Game of Thrones heavy.
I have no idea how Ghost survived that last episode of Game of Thrones. But I support the theory he bit off the femur of a Wright, retreated to the forest, and just gnawed at it for the whole battle – just a happy dog with a bone. We know he’s alive because he’s spotted in the preview for next week’s episode.
When it first came out, my friends and I use to quote Bedazzled quite a bit, in particular, the post-game basketball interview after major sporting events. That’s why I got a kick out of this version of the quote referring to the most recent Game of Thrones episode.
Social media, in particular, Twitter, is great for things like Game of Thrones. Not that it should be used or checked during the episode, but to check out the immediate global reaction and feel a part of one large friendly community.
