Bag of Randomness for Friday, September 16, 2022

  • I watched some of the Chargers/Chiefs game on Amazon Prime last night. I think Amazon did some fine tuning with their cameras, the image seemed much better than what is normally broadcast.
  • It looks like we avoided a railroad strike. The timing for it was right with Biden as president. Say what you want about him regarding many issues, but when it comes to the railroads, you aren’t going to find a president who cares for that industry more. The man only got on a train just about every day to go to work in DC when he was in the Senate.
  • Troy Aikman was on with the Musers and stated that Q Clothier dresses both him and Joe Buck for Monday Night Football. That peaked my interest, and I found this article about the store. Let’s just say I’m not their target customer: A Different Type of Men’s Store and the Custom Suits That Even Quarterbacks Love How a UT Grad Changed Shopping for Your Benefit With Q Clothier

    • In the dual-concept stores, Q serves clients with the full wardrobe experience: Premium made-in Los Angeles selvedge denim (starting at $150), Pima Cotton tees (starting at $38), handmade custom shirts (starting at $180) and bespoke suits (ranging from $1,095 up to $10,000). And it all comes in a hip, relaxing environment with whiskey behind the bar and sports on the TVs.
    • With such a client-centric focus, it’s no surprise that Q Clothier has attracted a dedicated clientele that includes legendary Dallas Cowboys quarterback turned Fox Sports analyst Troy Aikman, Pittsburg Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Andy Beal and George W. Bush are other high-profile clients among the company’s impressive roster of elite businessmen, athletes and celebrities.
  • A Louisiana woman was denied an abortion in her state even though her fetus had a rare and fatal condition, leaving it with no skull and no chance of life, traveled 1,400 miles in order to undergo the procedure.
  • Timber (The poor bloke must feel terribly embarrassed). It reminded me about this incident, when a soldier at the Tomb of the Unknowns was sent back because his rifle wasn’t up to par – The Mistake That Haunts This Guard of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It also reminds me of what all men are told before a wedding, don’t lock your knees when you stand otherwise you cut off circulation and will pass out.
