On Saturday I joined some coworkers at Taco Mac for some NFL playoff action. Since I arrived early, one of my flaws, I got us a table and watched the NCAA North Dakota v Southern Illinois football game’s end. The game was entertaining, SPOILER: North Dakota won its fourth consecutive FBS championship, but what amazed me is that there were fans for both school cheering at different points during the game. Prior to heading to Taco Mac I took a sackful of now-irrelevant paperwork (much of it pertaining to the Jackmobile, and some from the previous car in my life!) into work and put the paper shredder in action. I have a good feeling of cleansing and accomplishment when I get to remove old documents from my life.
Yesterday I joined a handful of hearty souls up in Gwinnett for tailgating and Gladiators. We had great seats (thanks again ITP-Reader Laura!) and I was near a couple who were fans of the opponents, the Fort Wayne Komets (sp). I had never heard of the team before, nor did I expect to see fans of theirs in Georgia. I drank way too much beer, probably was “slightly” obnoxious, threw six lousy Chuck-A-Puck attempts, but overall had a great time. The only thing I wish that I had done differently was remember to stop for gas on my way home.
Yesterday I also realized that I have not attended a single event at Philips arena (at least not to my knowledge) since the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg at the end of the 2011 season.
The rest of my weekend was spent sleeping, trying to stay warm, pretending to clean house, and trying (rather unsuccessfully) to write software and get prepared for the start of my German course tomorrow night.
Today I have to go to the dentist for my semi-annual checkup. I’m hoping that all proves to be in good working order.
Since I have absolutely no interest in tonight’s NCAA Football Championship I will ignore the game and instead get home and do more of what I did this past weekend.
