Friday Filler- When Parades Collide

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Wow…so much has happened since last Friday! And…yet…so little has changed.

Today is Friday the 13th!!!  Eeeek! But, I’m not superstitious. I mean…what else could possibly go wrong this year? Wait…don’t answer that. 

A New Act started in our games. There was a ton of election news that made some people happy, then sad, then mad, then sad…and it didn’t really matter which “team” you were on.

The Ducks beat the Cardinal…for anyone watching who actually cares about college team sports right now.  The Vegas odds on which games will get cancelled, are almost as high as who will win.  But, I digress…

Can we all just agree on one thing?  These are some damn strange times we are living in…and almost nothing is satisfying.  But, is the Universe trying to tell us something?

FRIDAY FILLER – “Why Do They Do That??”

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Except it isn’t.

Once again, life has forced me to write this early Thursday, during a week when “early” or “too soon” and “not soon enough” all seem to be running into one another.

I have been overwhelmed with friends, TSTO buddies, and others texting, emailing, and FB messaging me about my thoughts on “the big story.”  And yet, here…I am sworn to keep politics off of this blog, which is supposed to only be “about the game.” I am word-cuffed in sharing any real thoughts about what has transpired this week.  But, I put those cuffs on willingly. It’s important for our friendship.

So, I will do my best to keep it all about the game. Mostly. Continue reading
