First off, I wanna thank Balls for covering Saturday night

so I could enjoy the day with WineWife.

Now, on to the more important point: this is the last Sunday for me until the end of the season.

We are entering the most glorious part of the year at [DFO] for me – when actual football takes the place of my having to invent #content to fill up six days per week. That’s now the responsibility of the NFL, as there will be plenty to rag on during the course of the next seventeen weeks, plus playoffs. I enjoy doing it, and the #contentoverlords allow me to expand my writing to cover areas of interest to me & hopefully you.

“Just stay away from Seamus’ domain. He’s in a good place” 

But it occasionally becomes a chore, which is why I take vacations or ask for time off. I don’t want to burn out at my volunteer assignments, since it means I’m likely burning out at my paid assignments. And that’s why the start of the regular season means so much, because it cuts my load down to three days/week – coinciding with the start of the school year. Now I’m fresh for everyone!

Relatively speaking.

Hopefully, I can get back to producing some of the longer pieces & serials that [DFO] is known for. In any event, it’s the middle of the holiday weekend, so I hope you are enjoying the grilled meats, the chilled beers, and juuuuuuust enough time with family. Remember: next week we football!


Tonight’s sports:

  • College Football:
    • Houston at Oklahoma – 7:30PM | ABC / TSN5
  •  MLB:
    • Mets at Phillies – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN3
  • MLS Soccer:
    • Seattle Sounders vs. Los Angeles Galaxy – 6:30PM | FS1
  • Left turns:
    • Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series:
      • Southern 500 – 6:00PM | NBCSN / TSN

My minor league beer selling ended on Friday. I made $500 cash in the last three days, and with my other three compatriots polished off a half-keg of Whistler Lager under the stands after the last out. It was glorious. Luckily, it’s only 285 more sleeps until Opening Day 2020!

I had no idea the effort required after I changed my Wi-Fi network name to “Trumps tiny confused peener”.

I rebooted every device. Had to sync everybodies phones, fucked with the TV, had to reboot the computer, signed in with my damn phone!.

It was worth it.

My Veterinarian mentor is now practicing up there on the NC/Tennessee border these days. I had planned to drive up. Really want to see him once more before he dies, but am not in the mood for the drive right now. He cancelled, Hate to say it but I am glad.

8.4% ABV? Then why have I had three of these double IPAs and yet feel nothing?

Anything less than 20% is just a bladder exercise.
