Stoppage Time

My wife may have done the most amazing thing she has ever done the other day …. Watched 28 straight episodes of Wings. Now, I enjoyed that TV show years ago, and when it’s on, I tend to leave it on, but I don’t know if I could sit through more than 5 episodes of this show, or any show, without taking a break. I admire her “stick-to-it-tiveness.”

So Long, Mr. President
President Ford passed away the other day, and I’m sad that I don’t know much about him. He sounded like a really nice guy who never got a chance to display what he could do as president. He was too busy cleaning up after Nixon … so much so, that it ended up costing him the Presidential race of 1976 … or so I’m told. He always seemed like a cool guy, a guy that could take jokes in stride, but would hold his own against anybody and everybody. Even though he went to the University of Michigan, I still respect the guy.

You’re Reading What???
Yeah, I’m reading a book … not just any book, but a book about Eric Bischoff, former president of WCW. I know, sound pretty lame, doesn’t it? Some people have vices like secretly loving Brittany Spears songs, or liking the color pink. Nope, not me – I LOVE reading books about pro wrestling. I have no idea why, but I’m fascinated by this industry – all the backstage politics, the partying lifestyles, the struggles of redemption … o.k., I’ll stop talkin’.

Happy New Year, All!
I know this post was short … many of you are breathing a deep sigh of relief. Seriously, though. I wish all of you a happy, safe, and healthy New Year, and may we all come back blogging stronger than ever in 2007!!!!

Wings: I thought the most amazing thing Sue had ever done was trying to get into the bathroom while you were dropping a deuce.

President Ford: Always seemed to be a class act. It's too bad that several Congressional leaders (including the soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader) disrespected him by leaving for their South America junket, rather than staying for the state funeral.

Book: At least you've surpassed the reading comprehension level required for books about porn, so the Project Literacy Scholarship is working. Maybe someday you'll even start reading about rollerball.

Happy New Year: And a Happy New Year to you and Sue, too. And a win over Tennessee in the Outhouse Bowl.

That's 14 straight hours of Wings. That's astounding.

I also don't know much about Ford, mainly because he was the president several years before my actual birth, but from what I've read over the past few days (which may or may not take a cynical look at all things political) his lasting legacy is going to be either pardoning Nixon because they were bff or worse or bringing a couple of nobody white house staffers by the name of Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney in to positions of authority that they never relinquished

Los, my ex's best friend and him spent HOURS on the phone debating wrestling books/wrestling/playing WCW on Nintendo 64. I totally understand the passion for that stuff.

And kudos to your wife for watching that many episodes of Wings. I had totally forgotten about that show. My best friend and I once watched an entire Law and Order marathon together on USA once when we had the day off together.

Wings? Is that the sitcom at the airport? Or, is this some History Channel thing?

Happy New Year!
