Some Random Thougths from the Guy with the Big Mouth

1. Congrats to Smokin’ Steve for popping the question on Friday night. Thank you so much for including me in your special night (no, he didn’t ask me to marry him – but invited me to come out and watch the special moment). If you ever need any of my marital “wisdom” that I have gained over the past few years, (a) I’ll be glad to pass it on, and (b) you would be one desperate individual.

2. I saw a Listerine commercial yesterday, and it got me thinking. Why hasn’t there been an advance in technology to replace flossing? Not that I ask my friends about their hygiene habits, but I’m willing to bet that not many of them floss. I certainly don’t. It is time consuming, and just feels awkward. Seriously, we sent rovers to Mars – don’t you think that we should be able to come up with a better way of maintaining our gums?

3. I watched Serendipity and Sleepless in Seattle yesterday … this is what happens when the Eagles don’t make the playoffs … SO MR. REID, GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, SO I DON’T FIND MYSELF IN THIS POSITION AGAIN!

4. N.O.W. is after Joe Paterno, because he “sort of defended” a Florida State player who was accused of rape. People, please. He didn’t defend the kid. All he said was that people are jumping to conclusions too quickly before hearing what actually happened. Let it go. There are other people you should be going after – not a legendary coach who has donated millions of dollars over the years to education at the campus he coaches.

** Congratulations!
** You have wrist-strengthening exercises to share?

** One of my co-workers flosses at his desk. Ugh.
** My electric toothbrush gets more junk out than any floss ever did.

** Andy, please fix the Birds before Karl starts watching the Lifetime Channel.

4. N.O.W. is after Joe Paterno ...
** Don't you mean N.A.G.?
** Note how they went after JoePa for saying something allegedly offensive ... and NOT Bobby Bowden for allowing the act to happen. Words mean more than actions -- to irrelevant organizations.

I was glad you could be there. She told me afterward that the fact that so many of our friends were there made it so much more special. I agree 100%. Friday night was perfect.

On Saturday, I went to a Broadway play in New York. That is something else that doesn't happen if the Eagles are in the playoffs.

Then again, I feel like I am getting a year off. it's nice to not stress about football for a change in a weird way.
