Monday Morning Quarterbacking – Crap I Think of While Mowing the Lawn #27

 

(other than This Lawn Looks Like Crap)

MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACKING

 

Interesting, if not always deep, thoughts often pop into my head while I’m doing battle with my lawn. And yes, I do battle with a non-gas, non-electric, old-fashioned push mower. An actual reel mower. And my mind tends to think of some semi-interesting crap while I push along.

Welcome to Volume 27 of Crap I Think of While Mowing the Lawn (or is it while walking and driving through slush) in which I look back on Super Bowl commercials (yawn), Katy Perry (fine to look at, okay to listen to, and not worth much more commentary), the game itself (amazing) and the obligatory all-time ranking of its winning quarterback.

The Beatles’ Top 50? A Hard Day’s List

It was a lazy few days—although I wasn’t completely listless. Literally.

 

List-making is one of my favorite activities. Top 10 lists. “Fields of 64”, a la the NCAA brackets. And yes, I know there are now 68 or 69 teams, but my fields don’t do preliminary games. The topics? Sports. Food. Music. TV. Movies. Beverages. Women. Countries. Sports movies. Politicians. Authors and books. You name it. Many of us enjoy making comparisons, or rating or ranking things.
