Losing Its Cool

leave a comment »

Well, it looks like the central AC unit is calling it a career. Coolish air is blowing out but the temperature isn’t going down. The better half and I knew this unit was on it’s last legs ever since we got the central heating unit replaced two years ago. Bright side: the AC unit decided to have one last hurrah this summer and is pooh-poohing out in late September. This will enable us to save a few hundred each month and get a new until in the spring. Yay, I guess.

On Guard

The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher, seeking to fire up an important part of his support base ahead of November’s elections, told black leaders on Saturday he wanted their support to “guard the change” he was delivering.

You mean like this?

I know I’m guarding MY change. And my dollar bills.

Putting Shanahan In Timeout

leave a comment »


Dr. Mike Shanahan, meet the monster you created.

You’re the one who started the whole “let’s call a timeout right before the ball is snapped before a field-goal attempt” phenomenon. Now it’s come back to bite you in the ass.

The overtime was just as crazy as the rest of the game. The Texans won the coin toss to get the ball and moved to the Washington 34, but coach Gary Kubiak opted to punt rather than try a 52-yard field goal because he didn’t think the breeze was favorable. The punt went for a touchback, giving Washington the ball at its own 20.

The Redskins then drove to the Houston 34 — the same yard line as the Texans — and Shanahan opted to try the field goal. Graham Gano made the first attempt, but it didn’t count because Kubiak called timeout just before the snap. Gano’s second try was wide right, putting the ball back in Schaub’s hands for the winning drive.

I have no problem with this “call a timeout right before the field-goal attempt” ploy. If you’ve got the extra timeouts, you might as well use ’em. The only issue I have is some players may hear the whistle being blown and relax while other players won’t hear the whistle and still be going at full speed. Someone’s going to get hurt. However, as long as this is a legal rule, then there’s nothing you can do about it. Don’t like the rule? Then change it. I’ll also be indifferent if this use of timeouts becomes banned.

But for now, I’m laughing.
