Day by Day

Busy day today

The Mrs. is throwing a dinner party.  It's the kind of thing she likes to do.  I often wonder if she wasn't born at least 100 years too late.  There will be sliders, and chicken, and salads a-plenty, and a s'mores bar that features three different kinds of chocolate as well as candied bacon.

Yes.  Candied bacon.  On a s'mores.  See why I run as much as I do?

Anyways, the yard has been mowed, I'm cleaning up around the house, and I have a bunch of ice to pick up for the beer coolers.  Too bad y'all aren't in the deep South.  You might just stop by and see what I get to enjoy every day of the year.

Speaking of things to enjoy, the NFL continues to sink.

The National Football League has done nothing to recover during the off season from it’s miserable popularity ratings that are now at the lowest ever. 
Rocked by the issues of players taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, overly long games, and scandalous players, just 35 percent say they have a favorable view of “America’s sport.”

My football watching had gone down quite a bit as more and more players decided to shit all over the national anthem and the flag, but when I saw an entire team kneel down for our anthem, OVERSEAS, and then STAND for "God Save The Queen", I decided that I was done.  I haven't watched a game since.  I won't be watching any more NFL games.  I haven't watched the Super Bowl in a couple of years.  I don't plan on changing that.

Quite honestly, the NFL can just go ahead and die for all I care.  Isn't there another football league that's going to be standing up sometime soon?  I bet they have a ready-made audience.

And as I leave to do all the stuff I have to do, I want to dedicate this song to the M1911A1.
