Dolphins v. Redskins (and more)

Tonight was a bad evening for the Miami Dolphins. In short, they lost 17-0 to the Washington Redskins. I don't think I need to explain how horrendous the effort was. 2 good things did come out of the game, though. First, nobody else got hurt. Secondly, Miami traded for veteran Chicago Bears WR Marty Booker. The addition of Booker will be a good thing, provided the QB play is competent.

I went to the game with my cousin, Shaun. We had a running joke about football being a great American event. There's hot dogs, burgers, and "big titties". Whenever a well-endowed woman would stroll by, my cousin began hymning a patriotic anthem. The 80 year-old gentleman behind us kept talking about "titties" and various other sexual items. I was waiting for him to cry out, "Woof! That's what's for lunch".

On Monday, I technically start school. I have an English Lit course at PBCC on M/W. I'm not going to attend the first class, Monday morning. There's a rally with former Presidential candiate Howard Dean, Senate candidate Betty Castor, and decade-long tax and child support evader Arthur Anderson. I've voted for each of these individuals over the past 5 months. The teacher, a Democrat, should understand and excuse my absence. It's not every day that I have the chance to meet such esteemed politicians.

Finally, part of Gary's family is back in town. Gary himself is still residing elsewhere. I was hoping that he'd at least call his sister over the weekend. As of 3:00 am Sunday, he has failed to take that initiative. I believe that he'll eventually realize his shortcomings and work to correct them. I refuse to use my blog to engage in any negative attacks about close friends or family members. At heart, Gary is a good person who is constantly struggling to stay on the right path in life.

More to come shortly...

Yeah the Dolphins are in bad shape but the loss to the Redskins doesn't matter.

Gary seems like a cool guy. It is very odd though that he vanishes over to "Ed's" place whenever something happens.
