Just some thoughts!

Thursday, Jan, 16 2014

So, the Oscar nominations come out this morning, and I realize that I have yet to see most of these movies! I hear great things about American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave, so they're up next.

Tomorrow on the morning show I will finally decide who I think wins the NFL Championship games this weekend.  Wow, both of these games could be really tight!  Omaha!

Amazing how fast you can go through icemelt when you're starting to run low!  I'm out and have had little luck finding any....

Gearing up for the Red Smith Sports awards banquet on Tuesday night.  More on this blog by Tuesday, when all of the celebs, coaches and more will descend on Appleton...can't wait!!

Thanksgiving Day

Tuesday, Nov, 26 2013

Thoughts on Turkey Day....

We always get a bird that I'm not sure is big enough, but it always makes it!  I know some people don't care for leftovers, but I love them.  Especially turkey and gravy...just don't overdo it!

Packers and Lions at 11:30 on WHBY.  Should be about right, since we normally attack the bird at about 2:30, 3.....Then, your post-meal nap kicks in right about halftime of the Cowboys game.

We have a tradition of giving our dog, Bailey her own mini-plate of turkey.  Nothing else--just some shredded slices of the bird.  She loves it--about sets a record inhaling it in seconds.

The basic menu this year appears to be: turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, cranberries, green bean casserole and butter rolls.  Yum!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Packers Monday

Monday, Nov, 18 2013

Tough stretch...3 straight losses for Green Bay to drop to 5-5. Hard to believe, but it's been just two weeks since Aaron Rodgers was pounded into the turf at Lambeau, though it might seem like a month or more....

Tonic for the Pack might be the visiting Vikings.  We have the pre-game at 10, with kick at noon on Sunday.  Justin Steinbrinck at Storm Team 5 says the early look at Sunday mentions a high of 25!

My guess is Rodgers stays out this week, then targets a return Thanksgiving Day at Detroit.  My only issue with that is that Detroit is notoriously one of the dirtiest teams in the NFL, so keep your head on a swivel, Aaron!
