    Sunday in the Park with Random

    First off, my humblest of apologies for being such a crap correspondent the past couple of weeks. Needless to say, I have no excuse really. Well, I HAVE one, but seriously, who the heck cares?
    Let’s have some random fun today. This past week has been so serious and somber – I had my tearful moments; watching George W. Bush tap his father’s casket on his way to his seat after his eulogy; the video of the “missing man” flyover. But the one that really got to me, in the subtlest of ways, was a tweet. The U.S. Secret Service announcing that the watch for “Timberwolf” had ended…..
    So to brighten the mood, it’s time for some random observations no apparent relation; no apparent order.

    1. Am I the only one that thinks that Bounty commercial with the kid poking Dad, who spills his drink and the older kid says “ooooooo noooooo” in slow motion is ridiculous?  I’m pretty sure she can lift the laptop out of the way in far less time than Dad can get to a paper tower, even if it IS the “Quicker Picker Upper.”

    2. I love Christmas Music. I especially love Christmas music by Mannheim Steamroller. With one exception. I cannot, will not, in no uncertain terms EVER like “The Little Drummer Boy” – I don’t care who performs it; I don’t care that they did a whole half-hour cartoon special on it. I understand that makes me a heartless Christmas Nazi.  I can live with this.  It will be difficult, but I can.

    3.  But this was the week I realized the game industry has reached its zenith and is now on a downward spiral.  This Christmas, among the Hungry Hungry Hippos and Operation, there’s a new addition. This is how it goes.  Spin the dial.  If a “3′ comes up, you take the plunger, plunge the toilet three times and hope that the lid opens up and a turd pops out.  Catch the turd!  You win.  The only thing that scares me more than the insane adult who thought this up is that an even more insane adult approved the prototype and had it put on the market.

    George Carlin was right.  You CAN “nail together two things that have never been nailed together before and some schmuck WILL buy it from you.”

    GO ARMY! BEAT NAVY!

    I was 2/6 last week and now 58/104 overall $1850/$1000

    This week’s only D1 game is the 119th meeting of the Service Academy’ Football teams. Army hast the upper hand this year with that power running game. Navy quit the horrible practice of recruiting football players instead of Midshipmen. They won a bunch of years in a row like that until they ceased that practice. Now both academies are back to normal.

    Navy at Army 3:00 PM CBS – Army are giving the Midshipmen 7 points. This game is unpredictable and damn near un-betable. But yeah, I’ll take a flier that Army beats this spread.

    Open.
