Manic Monday repeated
I didn’t leave Buffalo Wild Wings until after 9 last night, at the end of the first half of the Bears-49ers game. I watched the second half from my room at the Courtyard Briarcliff, and I fell asleep just before the Bears scored their final touchdown in a 28-20 victory. They were trailing 17-0 late in the first half.
Who would have dreamed the only 2-0 team remaining in the NFC West would be the Arizona Cardinals? The Seahawks also lost yesterday, falling 30-21 to the Chargers in San Diego. The Chargers have to be kicking themselves, since they could be 2-0, but they blew an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter and lost to Arizona on Monday Night Football last week.
Adrian Peterson was reinstated by the Vikings today. I’m very angry. Peterson hit his four-year old son with a tree branch last week and was arrested for child abuse by authorities in a suburban Houston county. I think corporal punishment is dead wrong, and I have felt like confronting people I see in public hitting their kids.
I never could get fully going this morning. Fortunately, I wrote my weekly column at Buffalo Wild Wings, and I didn’t have much to do for Osborne, so I was still able to get my work done in time to please Stephanie Baxa, the editor of the Osborne County Farmer. I’ve begun to print out the stuff for Ellis, Phillipsburg, Plainville and Smith Center. I’ll get some of it done here at B-Dubs, and the rest at the hotel. I have to go to Victoria tomorrow for volleyball,, but the first varsity match doesn’t start until almost 6, so I don’t have to rush if I leave KC at noon.
Elizabeth Psenski is here tonight after taking the weekend off. Good to see that. Lisa Toebben is not here. I think she might be avoiding me, but I hope not.
