Delay Of Game
The undefeated (10-0) Pittsburgh Steelers were supposed to host the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving. Then it was supposed to be played on Sunday. Then Tuesday (today).
Now it’s on for tomorrow at 3:40 p.m. Why a Wednesday afternoon? Because NBC has the rights to the game and NBC is committed to the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony? Have you seen the tree this year? It’s green and pathetic: all the ornaments should be Jets players.
Say Hi, Heidi.
Tom and Huck and Louie
Happened upon this vintage Louis C.K. bit about the difference between Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, but what makes it unintentionally ironic/funny is the comic’s confession just after the 3-minute mark. Wow.
How do you cope with sh*t in your past that’s bad? How do you try to feel like a good country when you’ve done sh*tty things?
Here’s one way: By not continuing to do them more than 30 years later?
Straight and Narrows
The Narrows, Zion National Park, southern Utah.
Don’t tell anyone, but the southern Utah/northern Arizona/southwestern Colorado/northwestern New Mexico region is the most enchanted area of the country. Other than perhaps Alaska, where we’ve never been. Don’t let the secret out. If you live in Flagstaff or Moab or Durango, you’re lucky. And you’ll be able to sell your home for double in a decade is our guess.
Happy Thanksgiving, indeed.
This is Stuart Bee, 62, who went missing after setting sail last Friday afternoon from Port Canaveral on the east coast of Florida. Bee set off in his 32-foot boat, Stingray, all by himself.
We’re not sure why the boat capsized but the U.S. Coast Guard found him 86 miles off shore and suddenly became Bee keepers. Do they charge for this service because if they rescue you by helicopter here off Camelback Mountain it costs, like, $10,000.
