5 Things We Know On A Sunday – From Jumping High To Sammiches, Daylight Saving Time To Lawn Care

5 Things We Know On A Sunday


  1. The high jump may be one of the most basic, pure forms of sporting events left. Think back centuries ago and a couple of guys sitting around, looking something. . . “How tall do you think that is? I don’t know – maybe as tall as Joe? OK, cool, I bet I can jump over it. I bet you five fish you can’t. Hold my grog and watch this.”   For the record, Texas Tech’s Trey Culver is one of the greatest jumper-over-of-things-people to ever walk the planet. Saturday he finished just short of his third straight indoor high jump title clearing 7’6″. He can jump over the clearance sign at most drive-throughs. . . Tech fans need to understand how great this man is.
  2. I’ve heard every argument for and against “Daylight Saving Time” and I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t care. I enjoy it being light later in the day, I enjoy the sun coming up earlier on the clock in the morning. Take your pick, you still only get 24-hours a day to do your thing. Just tell me what time the race starts in Phoenix today and I’m good.
  3. What did people store photos in before shoe-boxes were invented?
  4. If we had a Selection Show for sandwiches, trying to pick the top seeds in a tournament, my top four seeds would be as follows: The Club Sandwich – strong on content, variety and taste. The Rueben Sandwich – at it’s best hard to beat. The Basic Ham & Cheese Sandwich – With just ham, sharp cheddar and mustard it’s a blue-collar sandwich with no goal other than feeding you. The BLT – So well known it only needs letters for the name, like Cher or Prince. Must be served with mayo on white bread lightly toasted. Early Vegas line has the Club as a slight favorite. . .
  5. Every year, early on, you’re excited to get out in the yard and start weeding it or cleaning up and getting it ready for Spring and the green days to come. You’re excited about the possibilities and how you can add some features to the yard and really do all the things you’ve wanted to. You even enjoy getting those weeds out in early March. . . by June those same weeds will make you say words you never want your kids to hear you say and you hate everything about being out in the sun trying to make the place look respectable! ( admit it, you know this is true )

  1. 5 Other Things We Know…

    1. I couldn’t jump over my dog while he’s lying on the floor, without pulling a hamstring. A guy who can jump over something 7’6″… Shawn Bradley…(I’m quite sure I wouldn’t even be able to jump up and touch the top of his head.)…means he’s pretty much one of the greatest athletes in the world. I’d be honored to hold his grog.
    2. There are a few things every man needs. A good ballcap, a good pair of comfortable boots, a favorite old, soft, faded t-shirt, and a good dog. Those are the things, of this earth, that complete s man’s life.
    Oh yeah, a good wife. I could get into a lot of trouble for not throwing that one into the mix.
    3. There are a few rock n roll albums that take me back in time… to a specific place and time in my life, stirring vivid memories. For me, “Moving Pictures” by Rush and AC/DC’s “Back in Black” are the top 2. I can tell you exactly where I was, and what I was doing, when I first put those records on my Pioneer turntable.
    4. You should never skip an opportunity to take a trip into the mountains. Even if it’s just for a weekend…it’s always worth the drive.
    5. After spending a couple of hours watching reruns, I’ve concluded that the 70s was the greatest decade for TV. Great shows came out in prior decades, but not in the numbers that the 70s gave us. M*A*S*H, All in the Family, Taxi, Happy Days, Little House on the Prairie, Sanford and Son, The Waltons.
    It was the decade in which we saw the quality of acting, in sitcoms rose, dramatically… and the non-sitcom become as popular as the sitcom. The 80s produced some decent TV, but, it wasn’t until 1985, that we saw the greatness of shows like Small Wonder.

  2. i’d say the championship would be between Nick’s reuben and United’s BLT, with Nick and Willie’s sandwich winning
