Always a great way to make friends to come in in the middle of a conversation and criticize the people who were not talking to you to begin with. Someone needs a sorority chick to k--u...nt punt her!

TONKA: So I was watching ESPN Tuesday night with Nick, and this guy came on to do some NFL analysis. I loved it. Nick said he'd never seen the guy before and hadn't seen a "show" (it was short) like that before. The guy was talking about how college football's top schools (in football) don't produce NFL-starting QBs. He named several of the top schools in college football, and then said that not a single NFL starting QB came from one of those schools. Then named a bunch of the best QBs (starting with Aaron Rodgers, I also recognized Eli Manning), and gave all their schools -- none were schools you'd ever expect to be in the championship game -- and they all were tier 2 or 3 schools.
But why? He said that at the best football schools, they get bigger linemen, faster receivers/backs, etc. When you are surrounded by greatness, you will look/be better. But at the second or third tier schools, you don't get the receivers/backs who can run a 4.3, the linemen are a little smaller, a little shorter. The QB has to work harder, doesn't have as much time to work with as a guy with a bigger, better line and faster receivers. The QB has to work smarter, to deal with tighter situations.
very interesting.
2 Seminole QBs picked in 1st round 2 of last 3 years.
FSU IS Quarterback U!

You'll have to edit this link. It uses the real word, but Topix would not let it thru. I changed it to punt-punt instead of you-know-what-punt.

I have been recording episodes of Freaks and Geeks because I love so many of the actors in it, but never saw the show. I didn't think E (4 years old) was paying attention to what was on tv as he wandered through the room.

He just said to me "I like Freaks and Greeks. Can we watch more today? It is a show for adults and kids!"

I am laughing that he calls it Freaks and Greeks, but am feeling like a bit of a mom failure for exposing him to that show already. Oops!

Your boy EJ Manuel just went #16. I'm surprised that it took so long for a QB to get picked.
Bills made the right move, then picked the wrong Qb....according to everyone, Nassib shoulda been the correct pick.....You know, some teams just deserve to be crappy.....

When I posted on FB about being interested in checking out that show because I now am familiar with so many of the actors who were on it (Samm Levine, Jason Segal, love Judd Apatow, etc.), and got a bunch of "yes, it's great, you need to watch it" from a wide variety of people.

Most of my interactions with them were in the south, as well (except for my childhood friend that pledged at a SUNY school). The worst were in East Tennessee.

I think I watched it a few times when it first came out and liked it, but it was long before i knew who the actors were. SInce I love Jason, I've been meaning to check it out again!

There is a bike messsengerin the loop in Chicago who has a similar helmet and leathers- looks as much like a bug as anything else. Scary on the street. Okay guy to meet in the elevator. He gets noticed where it counts

I'm sorry to hear that.

I think it's so important for women to understand how to be real friends and support each other. I have been very lucky to find another group of friendly, supportive women in the mothers of Ry's friends. Too many women act catty toward other females or spend more time tearing them down instead of building them up. What kind of examples are we setting?

Weekend plans?

I'm covering the front desk today and I'm bored out of my mind.

Tonight: Home, cleaning, baking, gaming.

I can't go to poker tonight. I don't have $40. Yes, I"m that broke. That $900 vet bill really did a number on me (I waited too long to let my mom know the total--she'll send me a check but i should have let her know right away to make up for the lag time). So I don't think I even HAVE $40.

oh well, life goes on. Ihave money for alcohol, food and cat food, and gas. ;)

Tomorrow: MOre of Tonight. Nick's FINALLY installing his new kitchen cabinets, sink, dishwasher this weekend! Ever since I've known him, he's asked for Menard's gift cards for christmas and birthdays. He finally amassed enough to pay for the whole project.(I talked him into the expensive sink and faucet, having experienced both expensive versions and cheap versions.)

So I won't go over until later tomorrow (his dad and bro are helping him).

Sunday = softball practic.e

Weekend:
Nothing but chores and a visit to Sam's Club. I had pink eye a couple of weeks ago and now my daughter has it, so I am going to spend the weekend disinfecting everything (she is with her dad)!!! I also had a major allergic reaction to some eye drops this week and my car broke down last weekend (costing me $$$), so I think there are a few beers I need to kick back in the near-term, as well!!! I earned them!

I wanted to take my friend out for a birthday dinner, but she has to work and can't make it down to my neck of the woods this weekend. Very bummbed about that! But at least she won't be exposed to my eye-cootie house!!!

Going in a little bit to help one of my former professors proctor a (lab) test and smile while all the baby anthro students (it's an intro class) are all impressed with my vast knowledge <shrug> then back home to write about the India Nationalist Movement/independence from the British Empire. Fun times.

Tomorrow, more of the same with a little bit of writing about the My Lai massacre.

Sunday, rinse, repeat, add laundry.
