Bag of Randomness for The First Post of the 2020s

  • Greetings. Happy new year, and to a greater extent, a happy new decade. May the 20s be roaring and not end in an economic depression this time around.┬áThere’s some debate when a decade begins and ends when examined from technical, scientific, historic, and pop-culture perspectives.

  • It’s odd for a Cowboys fan watching the Saints and Vikings play in a playoff game. The Saints are coached by a former Cowboys offense assistant and the Vikes by a former Cowboys defense assistant. Either way, the Cowboys don’t play as much after the regular season as their former assistants do.

    I’m a bit puzzled as to why football fans are questioning the way Jerry Jones is handling the head coaching position. Jason Garrett is under contract until mid-January. Simply, an employee’s contract is about to expire and the employer is weighing his options to renew/extend the existing employment contract or let it expire. Part of this process includes exploring other options and interviewing potential candidates and considering what they have to offer. It’s not dissimilar to my line of work. The government awards a contract to a company for work to be performed. As the contract nears its expiration, the company will decide if it wants to continue the work and make their case to the government. The government will also decide if they want to continue the working relationship but will also explore other offers.
