Short Takes on the Lighter Side of Things.
It has been a tough ten days and a couple of serious takes over the last two weeks. It is probably time to lighten up the blog a bit.
Jameis Winston – an NFL quarterback and after many years of your antics at Florida State…..can you just go away?
A high school administrator in Miami cannot understand the backlash from law enforcement, the media, and the parents of their high school kids. If you allow a tiger to attend the high school prom you must be a moron to think that people would not go crazy. The Principal of Columbus High School was perplexed at the outrage stating that he felt like a jungle-themed prom would be exciting. You cannot fix stupid.
Researchers in Hungary, using a $100,000 grant, found that normal and overweight dogs behaved differently in tasks involving food. They say the dogs’ responses were similar to what might be expected in normal and overweight humans. The country: Hungary. The subject: food. Enough said.
In another brilliant move, this time in Bulgaria…..prosecutors agreed to spare the life of a the cow after plans to kill her for crossing European Union borders without paperwork triggered an international outcry. And we thought we had problems here in the U.S.A.
If you are an FBI agent and you decide to go to a bar….and decide to dance like a wild man…..and wear your holstered gun……and while trying to perform a back flip to impress everyone……you let your gun fall out of the holster…. don’t fire the weapon while trying to pick up the gun on the crowded dance floor. I am sure that this behavior and action will be updated in the next FBI manual. Another moron.
It is the end of the first week of World Cup 2018. Some great games, some surprising results, and some seriously disappointing efforts (can you say Argentina?). My favorite moment so far has to be Brazil’s coach, in his mid-fifties and wearing a suit without a tie, tumbling to the ground celebrating Brazil’s late goal that ended up being the winner against a tough Costa Rica. A face plant of epic proportion.
And for all of you Atlanta United and Orlando City fans – the bad news for the World Cup is that Marc Geiger is there refereeing some of the matches. The good news: Marc Geiger, at least for the next couple of weeks, won’t be in the middle overseeing a game involving Atlanta United or Orlando City. Mark Geiger and the very old TV show Dark Shadows have a lot in common.
