Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm back from one of my football trips where I got to see Baylor at Duke (we are 0-3!) and the Buffalo Bills at the North Carolina Panther (no touchdowns scored!) We moved and moved a lot on this trip. Mrs. LL was a tremendous trooper. 
  • She fully understood, "It's not about getting to where we are going, it's about the journey." We took our time, changed plans at the drop of a hat when needed, and took in every single moment. 
  • Hot opinion: Duke University is the most beautiful campus I've ever seen (and I've seen many), and it is not even close.
  • Downtown Charlotte may be one of the best cities I've ever seen. They are big on modern architecture. 
  • I had no idea the beaches in the Carolinas were that beautiful. (Although Mrs. LL and I eating breakfast on it almost was a re-creation of The Birds. It was truly an "Oh, my!" experience.)
  • Trump had a big weekend. He called the leader of North Korea "Rocket Man", retweeted a video of him hitting Hillary with a golf ball, and got mad at ESPN. Certainly he is a stable man, right? 
  • I'm stunned Texas almost beat USC. It's oddly good to me that OU and Texas are looking like they are back as leaders in the Big 12.  Throw in that Tech looking good, and TCU and Oklahoma State looking fantastic, Baylor may not win a game. I feel like I'm going back in time.
  • Zeke Elliott giving up on the play after the interception tells you everything you need to know about the guy. (As if you didn't already know.) He will be with the Cowboys for this year and two more when his contract ends. Then he is gone. Running backs are a dime a dozen.
  • BagOfNothing made a reference to a "two below" pickup football game. I really wonder if anyone understands the reference anymore. One anywhere. Two anywhere. One below. Two below.
  • I wonder if someone once bought them a meal at Denny's when they were seen in uniform?
  • Old school: Kevin Von Erich vs. The Bridgeport Bulls back in the day. Anyone know the Bull players?
  • Best screenshot of the football weekend when Florida scored on a Hail Mary at the end of the game against Tennessee.
  • "Improper teacher-student relationship cases in Texas soar."
