- Not much to report on the running this time. I got a cold on Sunday afternoon and finally kicked it a bit today. I didn't want to risk keeping it along any longer with the big merry-go-round coming up next week.
- Thanks for all the kind words on the business. Things are going well so far...and at the same time they're quite overwhelming. But I guess I knew that when I went for it, and, with enough beer, I can handle anything! Right?
- I really do appreciate Glaven. I love his blogs. Both of them. I did not mean to berate him. You see, I honestly very rarely am clever enough to even enter the octagon with guys like Glaven (or Nitmos, Viper, Vanilla, etc, for that matter) when it comes to wit. And because of that, I couldn't resist my previous post about his typing skillz. I hope he doesn't hold it against me. In fact, I believe I may be (dare I say) developing a bromance for the guy. Honest! I actually read his post, then comment, then read the other comments, then check back for Glaven's comments on the comments, and then check back for other comments.
- How many guys does it take to have a half-time show in the NFL? I mean, seriously...this is getting ridiculous! Remember, "back in the day," when there was a color guy and an analyst? Now, there's a color guy. There's a Hall of Fame QB. There's a recently retired QB. There's a lifetime backup QB. There's a lineman. And there's a coach. And is it just me, or do they ALL have terrible (read: pimp-like) suits on. Gray pinstripes on a Navy suit is okay with me. Teal on Maroon (I swear, I've seen it on an NFL halftime show)? Not so much. But you know the worst part? It's when one of
toolshosts interrupts another one of the toolsthem to say something dumb, at which point they all rock back in their chair, laughing out loud uncontrollably and slamming the desktop with their fists. Cut to commercial. Gag me. Am I totally off on this, or does anyone relate to me? Between the annoying as H-E-double hockey sticks halftime and pregame toolscommentators, the fox "robots" plastered over different corners of my screen at all times, and the unbe-friggen-lievable amount of commercials (sometimes, between individual plays!) and I really can't handle the NFL. I much prefer college. Then again, as Rick Riley points out, how can Utah seriously never ever have any chance at all of winning a National Championship?
