Bag of Randomness for Monday, October 7, 2019

  • The woman in red is giving this bridesmaid some serious side-eye. Look at that form, it’s textbook, you can’t teach that stuff, that’s just some natural talent.
  • I stopped at a red light on the way to church yesterday. The woman in the car next to me didn’t see the light turn green because she was looking into a compact mirror and plucking chin and neck hair with a pair of tweezers.
  • The Cowboys bested Brett Farve but his replacement has certainly owned the Cowboys.
  • I had no idea Troy Aikman was an assistant coach for the Episcopal School of Dallas, that’s pretty cool. If I understand correctly, his stepson (who also happens to be Jerry Jone’s great-nephew) plays receiver and a talented musician with his own website. The team appears to be doing well with Aikman coaching the quarterbacks. Last week, his team won 61-6 and their starting QB threw six touchdowns. Aikman gave the QB a shoutout during the Cowboys game and briefly talked about his potential as a college quarterback, which I’m sure got a lot of attention from scouts.
  • NFL referees wear jersey numbers but NCAA referees do not. In case you are wondering why and how they are assigned:
    • The jersey numbers for NFL officials are purely for identification purposes, and though there are 117 officials, the jersey numbers go up to 135. There’s no rhyme or reason to the numbering system, unlike how players are limited to a certain range of jersey numbers depending on which position they play. Typically, when an official is assigned a jersey number, he or she keeps it year after year, although occasionally there’s some number swapping. 
  • I had no idea dolphins used to commonly roam the Potamic River during colonial times. Thanks to the efforts to clean it up, they are returning.
  • The Ohio State Marching band impressively told the story of the space race.
