Sunday rambling

I did go to Buffalo Wild Wings yesterday, and it turns out I was missed.

Brittany was behind the bar when I got there. I didn’t sit up there at first, but I finally made my way over there. It turns out there was a man who was playing trivia like me, and we chatted throughout. Brittany’s fiancee, Zach, showed up, and we went back and forth about college football and the Royals.

I moved into the dining room when Liz showed up. For some reason, I was not fully into it, but I stayed long enough to play Buzztime’s music trivia game from 7 to 8. I left at 8:30 and went back to Overland Park.

It was quite a day in college football. The big news came from Oxford, where Auburn upended Ole Miss 35-31, handing the Rebels their second consecutive loss. Ole Miss led 24-14 in the third quarter, but the Tigers took the lead by the end of the period.

Ole Miss appeared on its way to the winning touchdown when a tragic play happened. The Rebels’ top receiver, Laquon Treadwell, was running unmolested towards the end zone, but he was caught at the 1-yard line. He was forced to fumble, which Auburn recovered, but even worse, Treadwell broke his right leg. It was gruesome to watch, ranking right up there with the broken legs suffered by Washington Redskins legends Charley Taylor in 1971 and Joe Theismann in 1985.

In the Big 12, TCU fell behind 13-0 at West Virginia, but rallied to a 31-30 victory. This sets up a huge matchup at Fort Worth this Saturday between the Horned Frogs and Kansas State, which is the only team still undefeated in the conference. The Wildcats have to be kicking themselves for losing at home to Auburn, a game in which K-State turned the ball over three times and missed three field goals. Had the Wildcats won, they would easily be in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings.

The clocks turned back to standard time this morning at 2 a.m. I’m not complaining. I don’t mind it getting dark just after 5 p.m. I don’t like daylight savings time. I don’t like the sun being out so late in the summer. I would rather it get dark earlier than stay dark longer in the morning.
