It looks like it might be a mild week here in Vermont. The temperature will be mostly in the 40s with rain on Wednesday and Friday. We may even have sun on those non-rainy days. Mud season seems to have arrived. The snow is melting and the mud is everywhere.
Work should be fairly routine this week. There is nothing unusual going on this week. Well, maybe one thing out of the ordinary. We have to take samples off an artifact for testing, which will be interesting. Otherwise, it should be a routine week.
Not much else is going on. I’m disappointed that Duke and Texas Tech lost last night. I just hope that Loyola Chicago can win their next game and make it to the final. It’s exciting when a Cinderella team does well, especially when the team chaplain is a dynamic 98 year old woman named Sister Jean.
Each night when I turn in the Olympics, my eyelids grow heavy and I fall asleep. I end up watching them the next day because I have been recording them. It’s not that I find them boring, I just can’t seem to stay awake.
I love this picture of Adam and Gus. Both are so handsome. Adam did fabulous last night, though his score did not reflect it like it should have. Here is one more Adam and Gus pic.
Also, last night was the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery. Wow! What an episode. Like so many of the episodes this season, it was jam packed with action. Also, it had a surprise ending that I’m not sure anyone saw coming.
Last night was the beginning of competition. Tonight will be the opening ceremonies. I watched last night because it was mainly figure skating. It’s one of the few winter sports that I care anything about watching. I watched the men’s short program for team skating (I recorded the couples because they were on too late). The men’s program was quite disappointing. There was a lot of hype over some of the skaters just to watch them fall down. Plus, Johnny Weir was a commentator and he’s just a snarky bitch. It’s one thing to be a snarky bitch around friends who appreciate it, but it’s another thing to be on live TV and be a snarky bitch. I did not care for the men’s program last night. Let’s hope the opening ceremony is fabulous.
It really didn’t matter to me who won, the Patriots or the Eagles. I’m not a fan of either. I probably lean more toward the Eagles because I like their QB Nick Foles, and I don’t like the Patriot QB Tom Brady. No matter who plays, many of us still watch the game because we want to see the commercials. If you watched it for the commercials, what was your favorite?
Yea, Alabama! Drown ’em Tide!
Every ‘Bama man’s behind you,
Hit your stride.
Go teach the Bulldogs to behave,
Send the Yellow Jackets to a watery grave.
And if a man starts to weaken,
That’s a shame!
For Bama’s pluck and grit have
Writ her name in Crimson flame.
Fight on, fight on, fight on men!
Remember the Rose Bowl, we’ll win then.
Go, roll to victory,
Hit your stride,
You’re Dixie’s football pride,
Crimson Tide, Roll Tide, Roll Tide!!
You should realize by now, I’m a big college football fan. I’m sorry that the season is almost over. However, I am super excited that the National Championship Game will be an all SEC game. The Southeastern Conference has proven that it is a powerhouse in college football. They prove it year in and year out. The Georgia/Oklahoma game was a bit of a nail biter, but Georgia came out on top in the second overtime. The Alabama/Clemson game was not so much of a nail biter. Clemson never scored a touchdown, only two field goals. Alabama just powered on ahead. The interception and subsequent touchdown by Da’Ron Payne of Alabama was a definite highlight. I love it when big guys score.
So next Monday night will decide it. Will it be Alabama or will it be Georgia?
It was an exciting game. Overtime is always exciting, but damn I wish Atlanta had just kept their lead. I’d rather see a straight out win than an exciting game. Exciting games tend to mean that my team loses, which is what happened last night. I may live in New England but it doesn’t mean I’m going to pull for them. I’m a southern boy at heart, and I wanted Atlanta to win. Oh well, that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
Whether you root for Michigan or Ohio State, Georgia or Georgia Tech, Florida or Florida State, Ole Miss or Mississippi State, Clemson or South Carolina or more importantly Auburn or Alabama, this is an exciting weekend in college football. I couldn’t name all the rivalries, but I named some of the more important ones. Of course to me, the most exciting of them all is the Alabama vs. Auburn game. Who will win? We shall see.
There is a big game on tonight LSU (5-2) vs. Alabama (8-0). Historically, if LSU wins during an election year, Republicans win the White House, but if Alabama wins during an election year, Democrats win the White House. I’m not an LSU fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I am an Alabama fan. This gives me all the more reason to root for Alabama. If you’re interested, it’s on CBS at 8pm Eastern Time.
