5 Things We Know On A Sunday
- Hard to believe that after 30 years, the quaint 82nd St. Cafe has closed down. Thirty years is a heck of a run for any eatery in any town, particularly Lubbock. Whether breakfast or a hearty lunch, 82nd St. was always there for ya, tucked away a little bit back from the street. It will hold a special place in my heart, as it was one of the last places my Dad would regularly go “dine” at, swapping stories, ( many true I’m told) with other old coaches. Thanks for the chicken fried steak and memories, 82nd St. Cafe.
- If you’re in the right mood for it, there may not be a better combination than a West Texas summer evening, a good porch to sit on and Jerry Jeff Walker music. It should be mandatory that folks do this at least once a summer, more if needed.
- If you’re a real fan of baseball, the Texas Rangers and Adrian Beltre; then you’ll have no problem if he agrees to be traded to a team that has a chance to win this year. Players like Beltre have earned the right to have a shot at a title in their fading years, if that’s what they want to do. Dallas Cowboys fans would have been rooting for a Jason Witten or Tony Romo if they’d played their final game in a Super Bowl wearing another uniform. Like them, it’s not going to happen for Beltre in a Rangers uniform.
- With school seemingly starting earlier and earlier each year, it now feels like July is the “end” of summer. That’s a shame. August is a great month that seems to be compromised now when it comes to family-vacations or the ever-dreaded lounging around. Progress I suppose.
- There is no such thing as “Top Priorities”. There are only priorities.
