Football (More)

Mrs. Publicist: What do you think of the new name for the Washington Football Team?

Pete: Commanders? Isn’t it a bit on the bland side? Why didn’t they push it a little farther and go with Commandos?

Mrs. Publicist: Too aggressive?

Pete: Maybe you’re onto something. Football could go the other way, sandbagging the opposition with names like … like Sloths.

Mrs. Publicist: Sloths?

Pete: “Sloths, second and eight on their own twenty … the play clock is winding down.”

    Good morning everyone. We find the name change of the football team somewhat offensive. It’s kind of like, oh we need to pull a rabbit out of our hat.
    Now sloths on the other hand, we think are fantastic creatures. We love their masks we love their toenails and we really love their speed.
    Happy Boo Bear day to all.

    Rain, freezing rain, and sleet in this neck of the woods.

    Sometimes I find myself feeling very sloth-like. :^)

    RIO! MEGO…My eyes glaze over (from the February 2nd post).

    A very good BooBear day to all!

    The whole mascot thing just turns me off.

    The whole sports fan team obsessiveness is way too tribal for me.

    This likely started in high school. Our mascot was the “Warhawk.” Well, there is no such bird but they used an eagle. This was during Vietnam so “in favor of war” wasn’t flying either. Our colors were blue and gray. Bleech.

    Today is National Bubble Gum Day, Homemade soup Day and work while you are naked day. That last makes no sense to me. It’s Feburary 4! If you’re going to work naked, choose a date in August, the hottest month of the year.

    (Riõ: National Pug Day is October 15.)

    Mlaiuppa, we have trouble showering naked. Can’t imagine working that way.
    We do a homemade soup that we call Garbage soup. Know it sounds disgusting but it’s 3 to 4 day leftovers that we liked the first time around that we put into a broth and make soup out of it so nothing goes to waste! We love to spread that one around simply because it does work

    HOH, I love to make soup that way. That is what leftovers are for. I make a lot of things that way.
    Once I brought a potato salad to a potluck. I was asked for the recipe. I was trying to remember all the things I put in it. I mentioned tree ripened olives and water chestnuts. One of the ladies held up a fork and said “this looks like egg” “Oh yeah, I had some leftover egg salad and I put it in.”
    No one has asked me for a recipe since.
