    After my wife being gone for the last month, to deal with a massive family crisis that only an only-child could solve (and with-out help for obvious reasons) she got the great joy of flying in early to have me meet her at the airport. I met her with our beloved dog, so she say goodbye before we drove directly to the Vet hospital to have Soupy put to sleep for congestive heart failure. A very sad end to a very shitty month.

    So, nothing much for us.Report

    Saturday, Mrs. Likko and I shall attend a fundraiser concert which will blend into some professional networking for me.

    Sunday, Green Bay hosts the SeaChickens and I shall very much look forward to seeing what Randall Cobb can do against a Richard Sherman who lacks the support of a Kam Chancellor. There’s a Ouija Board out there that may be looking at a sharp jolt of adrenaline should that matchup work out the way I anticipate and hope.Report

        I like you anyway, @aarondavid .

        And yeah, I’d have run it up the middle with Lynch, had I been in that position.Report

          Even after all these months, I’m torn. It was the right impulse – with the personnel sets both sides had in, the run would have failed much like last Sunday’s very similar run failed. But the specific play they called wasn’t the right one, it would have worked against the Titans or Chargers or someone, but not the last play of the championship final – yes, the guy who made the INT was undrafted, but the guy who blew through the pick and took the play off its rails wasn’t…

          The question on Sunday is who will trip over his feet more (ouch, it still stings) – Chancellor’s replacement or Bulaga’s replacement.Report

    I should also add here and now that my life has been deeply enriched by learning that a contestant on Jeopardy! actually got Alex Trebek to utter the words “What is ‘The Love Ballad of Turd Ferguson’? P.S. hi mom.” on television.Report

    “…it very much was the fault of the team that refused to do anything a year ago because we hadn’t proven that it was their fault…”

    It was an attitude similar to this one in my lead engineer that led me to adopting the attitude that “I am just an admin–please tell me what to do and I will do it.”

    (Also, smiling to myself that somehow my fingers typed “shit” instead of “this” in the sentence above. Subconscious much?)

    Really looking forward to this weekend, and for many of the same reasons, with the added possibility of some redemption on the part of Arsenal at the hands of Chelsea tomorrow morning.Report

      I kinda wanted to have a contest for “guess which team refused to do anything until we proved it was them!” but I figured that the game was already given away by some minor knowledge of the spheres where I put my hands all the time…

      But part of me also wonders if everybody, freakin’ everybody, has trouble with this particular team in their corner of the country too… or if it’s just me.Report

    Yesterday I went to the Anderson and Cantor art collections at Stanford University. Anderson is a great collection of 20th century American art also known as my favorite art.

    I also had Malaysian food for the first time.

    Today is for the beach.Report
