Football season is fully on

It wasn’t much fun watching football over the second weekend in September unless you are a Wildcat, Chiefs or Patriots fan.

The rest weren’t much fun, except there were some bright spots in the Trojans, Jayhawks and Bluejays losses. The games were all too long and could have had better outcomes if the games had been much shorter.

Everything changed for the better for all teams except the Bluejays, who only lost by one touchdown to the Moundbuilders the following weekend.

I caught most of the second half on my computer after the all-school reunion banquet.

I’m hoping that Les Miles is on to something with the Jayhawks as they beat down the Boston College Eagles on Friday night which I watched on DVR when we got home from the Trojans homecoming game vs. Lyons which was more fun to watch than the first game vs. Hesston.

I think we all know what it is like when we bite our cheek when we are eating. You just keep biting the same place over and over again.

I thought I had a solution for this problem when I cut a flour tortilla to protect the spot. It was working great until I accidentally ate the little tortilla shield by mistake!

I had never seen Greg Classen’s ventriloquist act until this past Saturday night at the HHS All-School Reunion.

I thought he was amazingly talented, funny and professional.

One person remarked afterward that they had seen him on television when he was named a talent winner on “Bob Hope’s Search for the Top.”

When you are a hopeless sports fan like I am you will do what it takes to watch your favorite team in action.

With as much trouble as we had of signing up for ESPN+ the first time, we tried to sign up again and did.

Then we were not able to log in with my wife’s account after we had already used it one time.

When we called tech support we were told to sign up again, which didn’t sound right to me.

First off I couldn’t understand the tech support guy because I am sure he spoke a different native language.

Anyway we canceled Nancy’s account and signed up in my name.

So now we have two accounts for now until hers expires and mine which we can watch. It has already been worth it because I have had the opportunity to watch highlights of KU and Boston College several times.

How many men does it take to change a light bulb?

None. Real men aren’t afraid of the dark.

How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb?

None. That is a hardware problem.
