Tuesdays that feel like Mondays are no fun. I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend; it’s just a shame that they have to end.
I’m not going to talk about politics today but I just have to vent, once again the Republican platform caters to the religious right. I’m sorry; it just doesn’t wash with me. You’ve got a party with really good ideology in so many areas and the last decade and a half has seen many of those overshadowed by pandering to evangelicals who are trying to control the party from the pulpit. I just wonder, it’s a Christian platform today, what stops it some day from being a different religion with different beliefs. Ok, I’m done, it’s no big deal if you don’t agree with me, I feel better now.
On another plain, kudos to those that orchestrated the evacuation of New Orleans, only those that by a personal choice had to stay and that is a very good thing. They gave a new meaning to planes, trains and automobiles. I did notice one thing that stood out like a sore thumb, the city wasn’t prepared for a wind event. Did you notice how many flags were flying? Billboards were still up, heck I saw a huge Obama poster blowing by in one news report. Awnings had not been taken down, traffic lights weren’t removed to leave the bare minimum. I know, it’s not my town and it’s not my worry, it just bugs me. I feel better now too.
Since I’m venting today, let me also say Tampa. When oh when am I going to see someone from Tampa say. Every year I prepare and in the back of my mind I say, “YEEHAW, we haven’t been hit for 87 years and man that feels good.” Instead you hear, “we’re due, oh man we’re due.” Personally, I keep on saying, we’ve had our share we should be done for awhile and then I see Hanna and Ike. Tamponians, you’re due? I’ll give them all to you.
OK let me switch to something positive. Kyle’s Mitey Mights are undefeated. They won their first game 19-0 on Saturday. Kyle had a great game kicking off and even recovered one of his own kicks that was flubbed by the opposing team. He also had a couple of nice tackles, but most importantly, each boy out of a roster of 23 for that game played at least 20 plays. Our team is of a size that you only have to play your weakest players 8 plays, but we have a coaching staff that believes more in a team concept than in winning. Who knows, they might be able to have their cake and eat it too!
Yep, more negatives than positives,I've got my work cut out for me to change that. I don’t care that it is called Tuesday, it sure feels like Monday and that leads to the QOD:
What is your rant or rave?
