My salad was good. They burned the son's sweet potato fries but he liked the shrimp.
Wow, that traffic between Dallas and San Antonio is awful, to put it mildly. I did something with my middle finger I've only done once before in reference to another's driving. Some guy was driving a pickup full of empty cardboard boxes and styrofoam that was NOT tied down or constrained in any way. Mayhem. One of the boxes hit us square on the hood of our rental before we could pass him.
Apparently Smashburger is the winner over Whataburger.
I thought this was very interesting. Nothing earth shattering, but rarely do personnel men speak candidly about the combine, the draft, free agency, and some of the metrics they use to evaluate players. The panel consists of personnel men from the Rams, Patriots (Scott Pioli), and the 49ers and one of the Football Outsiders guys
This is from an MIT conference on sports from last April.

I don't give a rats ass about these awards, but I found this interesting. MLB pitcher (former Brew-ha) John Axford has tweeted his picks the past few years going 14/15 last year, 11/15 in 2012, and 11/13 in 2011.

Someone may already have posted this video back when. If so, apologies. But if you love Johnny Carson and Bob Uecker this video (90" long) is really worth seeing. "Mr. Baseball". Great stories, great laughs and great times. Uecker talks about being on the Tonight Show, Baseball, Miller Lite and how it all began. Pretty good clip if you got the time to watch.
