This past weekend, I spent my Saturday morning watering the plants in the backyard and listening to podcasts.
(A brief digression, if I may. When I think of great opening lines in literature, some of the first that come to mind are from Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities [“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”], Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow [“A screaming comes across the sky.”], and King’s The Gunslinger [“The man in Black fled across the Desert, and the Gunslinger followed.”] Unlikely to be included in that group in the future is “This past weekend, I spent my Saturday morning watering the plants in the backyard and listening to podcasts.” Maybe next time!) (Note from Scott: Someone needs to be reminded what the word “brief” means)
The host of the podcast was moaning about fans of the Philadelphia Eagles (who won the Super Bowl in February, in case you hadn’t heard) and their penchant for never missing an opportunity to remind you that they won the Super Bowl this year (touché). I admit to chuckling a bit over his laments and then mumbling to myself that the same can probably be said about fans of any team who have just won a championship of some sort. Then I went inside to make myself an iced coffee and noticed the following on the back of the bag of coffee beans:
For those who may not know, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in the Super Bowl. Also, Tom Brady dropped the football. Perhaps the podcast host was on to something.
Now you may be asking yourself, what does this have to do with CMEpalooza? Well, I will tell you, but first please watch this very important video clip.
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CMEPALOOZA I JUST WANTED TO RUB IT IN ONE MORE TIME BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS THURSDAY HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Also, I updated the CMEpalooza archive with all of the Spring 2018 sessions. We now have over 80 archived sessions, so head on over and take a look. And please share with anyone you think might would benefit from these FREE sessions.
