All I Really Want To Say

"I made a list, of things to say, but all I want to say, all I really want to say is, hold her..., and keep (her) strong, while I'm away from here..." -R.E.M.- (11)

"He thought that she'd surely run away, no fairy tale ever started this way but, it ain't the mind that calls the shots 'round here, when stronger powers pull two bodies near, nothing on Earth, can interfere when love is..., what the heart wants..." -Collin Raye- (What The Heart Wants)

"We could have been so good together, we could have lived this dance forever, but now, who's gonna dance with me?, please stay..." -George Michael- (Careless Whisper)

"My head is full of magic baby, and I can share this with you, I feel I'm on top again baby, that's got everything to do with you..." -Love And Rockets- (So Alive)

Good evening everyone.  I have decided to put an end to the 'Could You?' and 'I Remember The First Time' theme nights, although I will still include 1 or 2 references to each theme on their respective nights.  Although using these themes made it very easy for me to do my blog entries, I don't think that the titles themselves were the most intriguing...

Could you tell us what you're doing right now Coach? <<<Reference to a theme used long ago...  I'm watching the Broncos and Raiders do their very best to clear the 'Over' of 49 1/2 points as I type this post.  The score is 27-7 Denver right now early in the third quarter, and if these teams do cover the over, then my '10 Best Bets' will have gone 6-4 for the week.  Something amusing happened yesterday morning when a friend of mine told me that he had hit a 5-teamer the night before with 2 of my picks.  Since my Saturday picks went 2-3, it just meant that he picked the right pair of selections...  :)

For those of you who enjoy dining at Whataburger, and especially savor the taste of your french fries after they get cold and hard, well, H-E-B has just the product for you.  I was in the chips section on Friday night when I happened upon 'Extra Crunchy Whataburger Whatafries.'  The 7.4 oz. bag was only $1.00, and the bag states that these treats are "cut from real potatoes," which must be the reason that the taste does a great job of replicating the taste of cold, hard french fries.  I really wish that I had some ketchup here...

As I monitor the football game tonight, I'm also rooting for Wes Welker to save my fantasy team's perfect record.  Coming into action tonight I was 24 points down, and Welker is the only player on either roster who has yet to play.  I am currently 13 points down, and this brings me to a story from work last week.  A coworker and myself were near the office of a stranger when my coworker started to ask..., "I have a question about my fantasy team.  Would you start ...?"  I quickly cut my friend off, saying, "this guy is trying to work here..."  Then I apologized to the gentleman.  NATURALLY, the man's response was, "I kinda wanted to hear the question..."  :)

Speaking of football, I succeeded in winning the $25.00 tab for the football pick 'em contest again this week at the Bobcat Nation Sports Bar & Grill in San Marcos, America.  Assuming that the Broncos can hold onto this win, I'll go 24-7 on my picks for the week...  See, the key to being successful is just finding enough venues to participate in...  ;)  Of course I'm winning because they're aren't many people in this FREE CONTEST at the moment.  Just go to the 'Bobcat Nation Sports Bar & Grill' page on facebook, and you will find the link to the contest (at and the password.  You pick college and NFL games each week, STRAIGHT UP, for FREE, with the chance to win $25.00.  DO IT!!!!  Like I told my friend George, "I'll eat and drink every tab that I win, but I'll feel guilty..., well, a little..."  ;)

I do have to take a moment to admit that I'm very proud of myself for the comment that I made on the campus bus on the way home one day last week.  For no apparent reason (well, honestly, I think that this girl was trying to get all of the passengers on the bus to join her), on a PACKED bus, this girl (who COULD sing) started belting out the lyrics to Fun's "We Are Young."  You know the  song - "TONIIIIIIIIGHT, we are yooouuuung..., so let's set the world on fire...."  Anyway, after  she stopped, unsuccessful in her attempt to start up a choir, I made the comment, "I think that she was looking for the E-Bus..."  (E-Bus stands for 'Entertainment Bus' - this bus runs at night, shuttling partiers to and from 6th Street and Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays).  Anyway, the bus driver, and the girl and guy standing on either side of me ALL started laughing...  ;)

Okay, this is my next to last fantasy baseball update of the year (you're welcome Miletus).  I am a longshot to get any of my money back, but congratulations to all of those who are about to win some money!

  1. You have upgraded to "10 OK Bets?" ; o P

  2. That did make me laugh out loud... :) I missed the Tennessee/Florida under by 1/2 a point (almost 7-3). Angerisagift (I think) mentioned how I would have won at 49 1/2, but I went by the Thursday line (when I published). Two quarterbacks making their first starts score 48 (beat me by a 1/2 point)... :) Like I said, I NORMALLY get better as the season progresses... ;)

  3. good job,dude. when 1-0-1 on the games i liked. bolts +3 push and over in atl/mia 461/2 win the sc0re 27/23 fins.i wonder if the NFL will ever get in situation like the U vs savannah state were the game is so out of hand. u have a 12 minute quarter. if they do a jags will b the game. they do it in. seahawk started travis jackson 3 rd quarter. wtf.fantasy owners were cussing at that game . i bet. cool to hear u can buy whataburger fries. i worked at the 1 in magnolia, texas near woodlands.probably 1 of the best "fast food " places to work 4 bcuz when u get to mgrment. u work 4 10 hour shifts with 3 days off in a row. not like most places(kfc,mcd,etc,etc). were u r salary and they may as well brand u like a slave or cattle bcuz u live breath the company. well tc coach
