Monday's Meatloaf - Weaselin' on a Half Tank of Gas

Well, it's not a convertible and it hasn't been driven by Angelina Jolie's dad...but BDB has a new company car.

Seinfeld - Jon Voight's '89 LeBaron

You know it's time to trade in the old truck when part of its appraisal hinges on how much gas is in the tank. Luckily I had just put a half tank in the previous day, which allowed me to weasel with the weasels a little more.

And while I waited on them to agree on exactly how much under wholesale they were going to give me the car for, I wondered why Arkansas always hires its football coaches off of the used car lots. Think about it: Lou Holtz...Bobby Petrino...Houston Nutt...all had to be great car salesmen. They all have the right mixture of sleaziness and talkability.

I'm thinking Danny Ford's more like a tractor dealer. Bein' a hayseed and all....

Oven's almost preheated. So mix these up and let em get to know each other a while.

  • Lots of action from the diamond this weekend. We'll start with the guys, who owned Ohio State Friday, but then fell to host team FSU Saturday to get thrown into the losers' bracket. That is where Ohio State exacted some measure of revenge Sunday, giving the Dawgs a flat tire on the Road to Omaha.
  • Meanwhile the women were within a handful of runs of punching their ticket to the Women's CWS finals against the gators. The dream ended too soon...
  • Luckily, both Coach Perno and Coach Lu have young teams that earned some valuable experience. Let's hope that carries into Spring '10.
  • The Track and Field team found Greensboro quite accommodating during the NCAA Regional Championships.
  • Wanna know which UGA mens coach has the greater metabolism, Richt or FoxHale is on it.
  • Jon Knox is transferring to GMC for academic reasons. Good thing Bryan Evans has locked down that safety position.
  • Who better to explain what an NCAA kicker goes through as he approaches the ball than Rex?
  • I have a mental picture of this year's Phil Steele with post-it notes sticking out of it at all angles and a bottomless coffee mug on the Senator's desk...
  • Big shout-out to Bernie's mom as she is now hours away from retirement. Papa Bernie says he'll give it another year. I guess then the real fun will begin. So enjoy it while it lasts mom!
To wrap things up, I feel the need to apologize to all those commuters who grew frustrated with me driving 50 in the right hand lane these last few months. It was out of necessity, but you won't be bothered again. 

Despite being forced to change lanes and go around me, you always took the time to shoot me some props. And I appreciate that about as much as those timeouts Slurban took back in early November. Perhaps one day soon I'll be afforded the opportunity to return the

It's a Monday Reader. Let's make the most of it!

2 questions, are there any chewed up pencils in the glove box, and when you start it is Glenn Campbell always playing on the radio?

Bernie said... #2 Ticanderoga. Pretty good impression. Lemme know if you are invited to any dentist parties. Dadgummit! I knew there was something else I was supposed to check before I signed.

Bernie's retired mom said...

Hey - it's official I'm retired! But there seems to be some misunderstanding - I plan to be (in your 5 year old's words) - JUST A GRANDMA! That's why I retired - do my three grandgirls have a blawg, if so that's where I'm blogging!!

I'm sure that can be arranged Mom. Whatever it takes to keep the retired community happy.
