Midweek Mutterings

I feel… 80% better after this Election Day than I did a year ago.

Why are vanilla-flavored Tootsie Rolls a ‘limited edition’?

My dream Marvel film would be a team up with Korg, Groot, and Luis.

While I enjoy watching basketball now, I really wish my Broncos or the 49ers were doing better in football.

Or maybe baseball should just start already.

November 17th is gonna be a busy day.

Sunday Blatherings

Dunkin’ Donut run in the morning.  I have yet to invoke my AARP card ‘free donut with large coffee’ thing.

Started watching the Broncos-Eagles game, but decided to go out and run errands instead.

Didn’t pick up anything from Barnes & Noble.

Picked up some grey paint from Gator Games.

Didn’t pick up anything from Toys R Us.

Didn’t pick up anything from Tanforan Shopping Center.

I stopped by McDonalds because I wanted a milkshake.  I ordered a Mighty Kids meal, and when I asked for a chocolate shake, the cashier said that they were out of shakes.  What?

I stopped by Best Buy to support my niece and her Girl Scout troop, who were selling chocolate and nuts in front of the store.  I went inside to find an ATM, and ended up picking up Call of Duty WWII.

I went home and used my new paint to finally start painting up my Militarum Tempestus Scions again.  I also watched the end of the 49ers game.

And now I’m watching Marvel films on TV.

Oh What a Night

Glenn picked me up for the Giants game at the usual time.

The clouds in the distance looked dark and were cause for concern.

It appeared that there might be some light showers at game time.

There were, along with thunder and lightning, which caused the start of game to be delayed until 7:55pm.

During that time, we found shelter and ate our Cha-Cha Bowls.

The rain subsided and we returned to our seats for the starting lineups and the National Anthem.

The rain started up again during the anthem.

Chris Stratton retired the first Dodger batter, Curtis Granderson.

And then the downpour started again and Glenn and I hightailed it out of there.  It wasn’t enough to get soaked, and the temperature was warm enough that it didn’t feel as uncomfortable as it should have.

We stopped by the Dugout Store to do some browsing, but didn’t pick up anything.

Glenn dropped me off at home, where I got to watch the second half of the Chargers-Broncos game, which was more stressful at the end than it needed to be, with the Broncos blocking the game-tying field goal to seal the win.

After the game I switched channels back to the Giants game, where they said that the game would resume at 10:50pm.

Ack.

So I went to bed listening to a live Giants game instead of the midnight replay.

I woke up around 2:30am and heard the end of the game, Giants 8 Dodgers 6.

Woohoo.

Return to Levi’s

My cousin Rich was kind enough to invite me to the pre season home opener between the Broncos and the 49ers.

Coin toss

As much as I’m content to watch sports at home, nothing beats being among the crowd during a live event.

We stopped by Chik-fil-a before the game.  I’d never had it before, so I ordered grilled chicken nuggets.

At the stadium, the weren’t going to let us in because if their “no outside food” policy, so we had to scarf down our meals rather quickly.  Once we finished, we made our way to our seats, just in time for kickoff.

We stayed in our seats through the first quarter, then went around the stadium. Rich was looking for a friend who might have been able to let us sit in the lower bowl for a bit, but he was not working the game.

While walking around and checking out the new banners and stuff, we noticed that there were banners for 4 of the five 49ers Super Bowl wins.  The missing one?  Super Bowl XXIV.  I wanted to take a picture under it while wearing my Elway Broncos jersey.

Eventually we met up with the recently retired GY, working his first game at the stadium.  After chatting for a bit, it was halftime, so we decided to go home.

Thanks again to my cousin Rich for the opportunity to see the stadium, and my boys from Denver, again.
