Briefly. 

Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Hug the ones you love tightly. Our time together is limited. 

Trivia #1: On May 13, 2013 the Boston Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 in OT in the first-round of the playoffs. The game was chosen as the NHL’s game of the decade. Midway through the third period Toronto was leading 4-1 before their complete collapse. Boston’s Nathan Horton, Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron all scored to send the game into overtime. Who scored the game-winner?

Trivia #2: How far is one light-year? – 1 trillion miles, 27 million miles, 88 billion miles, 47 trillion miles, 400 billion miles, 6 trillion miles

Trivia #3: In what year were Cheetos introduced? 1938, 1948, 1953, 1958, 1962

Trivia #4: Give me the top five in most PGA tour wins, bonus for getting them in order. 

Dustin Pedroia, 13-year career, former ROY, MVP, 4-time All Star, played on three championship teams, hit over .300 in 2007 & 2013 regular season, four-time Gold Glover. True gamer. I’m going to miss him. 

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Cheetos has given a name to the cheesy residue left on your fingers after eating a bag of Cheetos – Cheetle. 

I should really man-up and acknowledge both Eli Manning and Derek Jeter. 

Thanks for teaching me the meaning of plethora – it means a lot. 

The NHL all-star game means as much to me as the NFL Pro Bowl. If I’m in front of the TV during the skills competition, I will watch that, unless of course my wife doesn’t want to…. 

Headline of the Week: “Jessica Simpson realized she had to stop drinking after she was unable to dress her kids on Halloween.” 

People often stop me in the street, never, and asked “Ed, do you happen to know whether Tim Tebow has had sex yet?” Well, apparently he either already has or will soon. Tebow recently married 2017 Miss South Africa’s Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and prior to that had preached a life of celibacy. Got get ‘em Timmy Boy! 

Myth: Coronavirus is a hangover from drinking too many Coronas. 

So the Zion Williamson era has finally begun. Media threw out all his stats from his Wednesday night debut and I’ll admit they were impressive, but no one focused on the fact that his team lost. 

I hate it when people get all intellectual and talk about Mozart while they’ve never even seen one of his paintings. 

Try to keep up… Here is what the Patriots got (and are still getting) in exchange for Jimmy Garapolo (after a dozen trades over two years) – LB Christian Sam, DB Joejuan Williams, RB Damien Harris, QB Jarrett Stidham, 2020 fourth-round pick from Chicago, 2020 sixth-round pick from Denver. 

R.I.P. Terry Jones (77) – Monty Python founder and scholar. Was once quoted as saying, “’We will destroy terrorism’ is about as meaningful as saying ‘We shall annihilate mockery’”

R.I.P. Jimmy ‘Pork’ ‘Mac’ McCarthy (57) – Husband, father, friend. A good friend, taken much too soon.

“Ma, take this badge off of me
I can’t use it any more
It’s getting too dark, too dark to see
Feels like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door”
