I must have raked up over 1000 pounds of acorns today! Just unreal. The yard looks great but my arms and back are not happy at this point. Getting old is no fun at all.
I bought two nice chuck roasts for tomorrow's BBQ. I will slow smoke them and make pulled beef at the end. I should post some pictures tomorrow.
No real huge games in the NFL and seeing that my picks have been atrocious I am lay off making them until after week 6 when I hope I have a better read on the teams. The only game this week that is big will be the Jets and Vikings. Randy Moss will have the cover of Adrian Petersons running so I will enjoy watching him vs. Darrelle Revis once again.
Reader Watchtower asks why I have not played any of the newest Ozzy songs from the latest album. To be honest I have not been a huge fan of the later Ozzy albums. Ozzmosis was the last one I really liked. I don't think Ozzy has changed too much, but his music now just does not grab me like the older stuff. I like to think of this group of men who made some of the greatest music I have ever heard:
That is Randy Rhoads, Ozzy, Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge.
Don't Go to the Bathroom
For the boxing fans.
In 1989 there was a fight between Michael Nunn and Sumbu Kalambay. It was supposed to be the IBF/WBA unification bout, but the WBA stripped Kalambay before the fight. Kalambay was a rock solid boxer who had never been knocked out. Nunn was a boxer that could not punch his way out of a paper bag. Still, it looked to be a chess match kind of fight. The prefight stuff moved fast and I was in the bathroom when the opening bell rang. I figured no big deal, long fight. I heard the crowd going nuts and when I got out, the fight was all over:
What a shot! Maybe Nunn's only real KO victory.
One more. Iran Barkley shocks the world with an upset win over Thomas Hearns as Barkley was about to be knocked out himself (skip to the 6:00 mark):
I remember seeing that fight and being totally stunned.
And for an Ozzy at the very height of his powers and armed with the songwriting genius of Randy Rhoads, here is "Tonight" as a special bonus:
In what can only be described as history altering news, NASA's picture of the day clearly was photoshopped to hide an alien spacecraft near the Saturn moons of Titan and Dione:
The picture on the right clearly shows a space craft with some kind of ion drive. Maybe E.T's need a bailout and heard this was THE galaxy for that?
Have a good night.
