Return to Russell

Rarely have I been happier to be in the Russell High School gymnasium than I am tonight. It means my troubles in Kansas City are over, and I’m back to work doing what I get paid to do (why I don’t know), watching sporting events.

I left Overland Park at 11:20 this morning. The drive was smooth, without construction or accidents to slow me down. Even with a detour at Topeka and a wait in the drive-thru line at Wendy’s, I was in the garage at exactly 3:02 p.m. I picked up my mail and spent a couple of hours downstairs relaxing.

I’m back in Russell for the first time since leaving for Kansas City the day after Christmas. Maybe I should have come back earlier.

I arrived at RHS in plenty of time for the girls varsity game, which tipped at 6:05. Ellsworth leads 12-9 at the end of the 1st quarter.

About David

Louisiana native living in Kansas. New Orleans born, LSU graduate. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, one toe less than most humans, addictions to The Brady Bunch, Lifetime movies, Bluey, most sports, food and trivia. Big fan of Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, New Orleans Saints, Montreal Canadiens. Was a big fan of Quebec Nordiques until they moved to Denver. My only celebrity crush is NFL official Sarah Thomas. I strongly dislike LSU fans who think Alabama is its biggest rival, warm weather, steaks cooked more than rare, hot dogs with ketchup, restaurants without online ordering, ranch dressing, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Alex Ovechkin, Barry Bonds, Putin, his lover in Belarus, North Korean dictators, Venezuelan dictators, all NHL teams in the south (especially the Lightning and Panthers), Brooklyn Nets and Major League Soccer.
