the Brady backup plan

Even though Dirt Dogs is mainly a Red Sox site, I think you will all enjoy this entry called Funeral for a Friend? After clicking on the link, scroll down to the third entry.

If you don't follow football, the funeral is for Tom Brady, the quarterback for the Patriots. He was hurt last Sunday and is now out for the season.

I know. I said not more than once a week, but one could 'technically' call this a football entry :)

"I know. I said not more than once a week"

- Hey - who owns this blog?? You do! :)

I got asked today why I wasn't posting travel (or on travel forums) so much any more. Answer, because it's my blog and I can blog how I want to. :)

Keep up the great work!

That's hilarious!

That IS hilarious!

But really, how hard can the job be, right? Quarterback, Vice-President of the U.S.? Not that tough, I guess.

I think I have to blame the movie industry for some of this phenomena -- that is, that "ordinary people" can do any job better than the experts. As in the movie Dave, where Kevin Kline, who plays an actor and presidential look-alike, takes over as President of the US when the real president falls ill. And the fake president does a better job. The message is: see -- we don't need experts.

Right. Why don't they ever make movies where the ordinary guy fills in as brain surgeon or heart specialist and does a better job?

Hi Girasoli, good one! :)

Brilliant!

(off topic -- I finally found the nalgene bottle travel kit at a big outdoor and sports gear store called REI. They had tons of them and at the same price I saw in the Nalgene website. If you ever need a replacement for yours, I can get them here for you.)

I'm a little behind in catching up with comments. I was surprised at first in finding this on a Red Sox site. Guess with losing Tom Brady, they became a little desperate :)

Leslie, thanks. I know I can post what I want but I really don't want to turn this blog into a political blog. I am just so consumed right now with all the crap, spin, and distractions taking place. It is just like the spin and creation of fear in the last election. I wondered why you stopped posting.

Sandra, interesting point. Dave did quite a good job "in the movies"!

María, glad you found the little bottles. I am a member of REI but can only order online or from the catalog since we don't have any REI stores here in Hawaii.
