Tuesday, March 21, 2017 – It’s The Shoes or It’s The Chews!

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 – It’s The Shoes or It’s The Chews! SFA and AXO!

One of my favorite scenes (they are all my favorites) in movie The Bird Cage is when Agador, played by the great Hank Azaria, must wear footwear for the senator’s and the family visit. He continues to fall and finally screams “It’s the chews!”

Walk with me here – yesterday I had to visit my primary care physician so she could “see me” in order to renew my prescriptions (See new rules and laws as of January 2017 regarding prescriptions.)

As she was renewing my meds, she asked “anything else today?” I replied, “No, my feet hurt, but it can wait until wellness in two-weeks. (See insurance rules)

She takes a quick look at my shoes and asks “How old are your shoes?” I reply “This is my best pair and they are at least a year.” She replies “You need new shoes.”

Here’s what I’m thinking – The doctor said I need new shoes for medical reasons. I always try to follow doctors’ orders. So I think this must include new workout shoes; new golf shoes; new summer footwear; new house shoes, new shower shoes, maybe even some new “real” shoes because I actually have some social functions to attend this spring.

WOW – check this out – light up sneakers for adults. I wonder if there is maroon and white LED version.  https://hoverkicks.com/

Little Sis? I wonder if there a purple and white pair? Wouldn’t light up sneakers be awesome to wear to our Alpha Chi Omega reunion when we all sing “… all Hail to SFA!”

I think this is my pledge class at The Fall Festival at SFA – 1969??

Therefore, I must go get my prescriptions and my shoes refilled. As Agador says “It’s the chews.”

Friday, September 2, 2016 – Snarky Friday – College Football Kickoff Weekend

Friday, September 2, 2016 – Snarky Friday – College Football Kickoff Weekend

The Friday before the first official weekend of college football is usually spent listing who got arrested, suspended and for what and thus will not be playing in this weekend football openers on Saturday. Let’s sum it up by saying to those of you not playing:

“quit being stupid,

stay off of social media,

don’t steal other peoples’ stuff,

stop hitting people and your pets when you get angry,

have a designated driver,

don’t smoke dope and

No (and passed out cold) means NO!”

But enough about Baylor, Auburn, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Alabama, OU, Stanford, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and USC players.

Tonight we have Baylor vs Northwestern – the Baptist Bears against the Northwestern Demons. @ 6:30. No TV. Not even baptismal streaming on ESPN3. These Demons just might add to the other demons haunting Baylor. Sorry Baylor nieces, nephews and gnieces and gnephews. Wishing for an upset. Go Cousin Daryl – DC for Northwestern.

Speaking of Natchitoches where Northwestern is located, we have the other brother, Nacogdoches, and his town my Alma Mater # 1 Stephen F. Austin playing Texas Tech in Lubbock @ 7:00 on Saturday. No TV. Not even ESPN3 streaming. Listen up, Jacks. Lubbock will look completely foreign and bare. You will recognize it instantly with no trees.  Do not bring your axes. However, beware of flying tortillas as well as flying footballs. Ax ‘Em Jacks!

Ax'Em Jacks!

# 8 Stanford and Kansas State @ 8:00 on FS1. The Wildkats from Kansas State travel to meet west coast Cardinal brainiacs and free thinkers. Think culture clash.

It’s a bloody Mary morning when #3 OU visits #15 The University of Houston @ 11:00 AM on ABC. To select a favorite is like trying to decide between a root canal and a hot water enema. I will go with the best looking red uniforms.

#5 LSU vs Wisconsin @ 2:30 on ABC. Leaping Lambeaux Field! And breathing the air of Vince Lombardi. ESPN Game Day @ 9:00. See which animal head Lee Curses puts on his head predicting the winner. On Wisconsin and into the Eye (and mouth) of the Tiger. Geaux Tigers! And Run Leonard Run!

#16 ucla vs TAMU @ 2:30 on CBS. The Aggies scored SEC Game Day at 9:00. I am getting my maroon, Adidas ensemble ready to tail gate. Thank you Hokes for the invitation!

Note to ucla QB, Josh Rosen: You might want to check out the 50,000 Aggies that will show up to Yell Practice tonight so you can become accustomed to the noise. Then prepare for another 50,000 the next day. This ain’t Utah.

Kyle Field Tour 11.19.15 2015-11-18 014 (800x600)

Alma Mater # 2 Sam Houston State v Oklahoma Panhandle State in beautiful Bowers Stadium in Huntsville, Texas @ 6:00. No TV. Go Bearkats!

#1 Alabama vs # 20 USC @ 7:00 on ABC. Roll Tide and stop with the OJ jokes. But you are correct. None of the other Heismans have killed people. At least not yet.

On Sunday, # 10 Notre Dame vs and the Strong and up and coming Texas Longhorns. Bless me Father for I have sinned and will be pulling for the Longhorns. The leprechaun is creepy; Bevo is not.

UT OSU Nov 16.2013 2013-11-16 026 (800x600)

Monday; # 11 Ole Miss and #4 Florida State @ 7:00 on ESPN in Orlando assuming the entire peninsula has not been washed away.

Go Team Fight!

BTHO ucla!

Ax'Em Jacks!

Sunday, March, 20, 2016 – Get Your Facts on the Jacks Straight, Man!

This was on Yahoo Sports this morning. “For a team that only began its basketball program in the mid-1980s, the Lumberjacks have carved out a niche for themselves in the Southland. This is their third straight NCAA appearance — fourth overall — and their second victory. As a 12 seed in 2014, the Lumberjacks upset fifth-seeded VCU. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/news/ncaa-tournament-2016-stephen-f-223500563.html

Then what sport were the Lumberjacks playing in Shelton Gym when they won all of those NAIA championships in the 1970’s? More specifically during the 1967- 1971 when I was a student “neath Texas pines where we’ve found peaceful shrines”

Let’s give the sport’s writer the Ax, Jacks.

Perhaps the sportswriters have just discovered what is behind The Pine Curtain.

Ax’Em, Jacks! Beat Notre Dame!
