Is anyone else watching Breaking Bonaduce? I have professed, many times, on my site how much I despise reality TV, so if I sound hypocritical learn to deal with it. This show though ... this is totally different. This guy is fucking nuts. It is the most massive train wreck I've seen on TV since the old Jim Rome/Jim Everett interview when Rome kept calling him Chris Everett. Actually, it is worse. Danny takes steroids, drinks incessantly and is so jealous his wife can't even goof around with her band mates. Each week the show gets more intense, and I am hooked. It is almost like he thinks he is invincible. I say I try not to watch reality TV, but really it is all that is on these days. So if you feel like your life is screwed up, take a look at this guy and you'll feel much better.
I missed it, and it won't happen again for another 10 years. Yes, my graduation class of 1995 from Mount Tabor got together this weekend for our 10 year reunion. Work kept me busy (let's pretend that game didn't happen though), so I was unable to make my appearance. Erich, Newp and the crew made me feel loved though, calling me both Friday and Saturday evening while hanging out with folks. It was great briefly speaking with some friends I certainly don't get to see often enough. Both E and Newp basically said it was a solid weekend, and most people were cool or as remembered. I do hate I missed it, mostly because it is just another excuse to hang out with some really good friends. Another time ... how about that 20 year?
Sour Skittles are my new addiction. They are incredible.
ESPN2 comes to town this weekend for the Vandy/LSU game. Yes, for the first time since 1999 Vanderbilt will be on ESPN and in front of a national audience. Trust me, for us to accommodate ESPN it takes quite a bit. We'll somehow make it work. I'm looking forward to it. It is an excellent experience, and as you can clearly read this doesn't happen very often. Despite our ugly loss this weekend, I think the boys will be ready for LSU. I'm hoping the anger and frustration of Saturday's loss is stinging them. I hope they remember how much fun it was to win those first four games and how miserable it was to see MTSU celebrate on our field like they won the national championship. Some people use different motivations, but that post-game celebrate would be more than enough to remind me I don't want anything else happening on my home field again.
