Thursday’s thoughts

Maybe it was the Slurpee. Maybe it was the cherry cheese danish. Maybe it was the fact Lisa was working a double shift and was in the dining room when I arrived at Buffalo Wild Wings, allowing me to spend the afternoon at table 162. Anyway, I finally got rid of the bad feelings of yesterday and the wee hours of this morning.

I checked out of the Overland Park Marriott right at noon. I took a circuitous route to Zona Rosa, taking I-635 to I-70 and then I-670 across the state line. I crossed the Kit Bond Bridge on I-35 and went to the 7-Eleven on Antioch Road. Not the best neighborhood, but nothing to be worried about in the daytime. Believe me, I drove through far, far worse going to school for 6 1/2 years–five at Brother Martin and another three semesters at the University of New Orleans.

I got my usual hot dogs and drink at 7-Eleven, plus a Coca-Cola Slupree and two cherry cheese danish. I was hungry.

When I walked into Buffalo Wild Wings, I discovered Lisa was in the dining room and happened to have my old table set up for trivia. Even though there wasn’t a power outlet close by, I figured I could get by until she moved to the bar area at 4. There was a group of three men who came and played together, and I got them on the last question before taking a break and letting them play one another. I got back in the game at 2:15, and I’ve been playing ever since.

Liz came in today to get some takeout. She loooked awesome as always. I knew she was beautiful, but I didn’t realize just how much until I saw her out of uniform for two days. Sean Cash, you had better thank the Lord every day for what you have pal. If you don’t, then…but I know you won’t mess it up.

I’ve seen a lot of my other favorites besides Liz and Lisa, including Brittany Davidson, Sidnee and Samantha.

Pretty stress free so far. The Jaguars and Bears are playing an NFL exhibition game right now, and I’m typing this, hearing the audio from the game, and playing Buzztime’s SIX, all the while Tweeting occasionally, keeping up on Facebook and filling out Buffalo Wild Wings surveys on line.

I have a free room reserved at the Courtyard Briarcliff, but part of me wants to go home. I’m out of underwear and socks, although the hotel has great washers and dryers. Debating. Not leaving here before 8:30, though.

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
