Briefly.

I used to sell security alarms door to door and I was really good at it. If no one was home, I would just leave a brochure on the kitchen table.

Trivia #1: Where did Bob Lanier attend college? – Rutgers, St. Bonaventure, St. John’s, Grambling, Seton Hall, St. Louis, UMass Dartmouth
Trivia #2: What’s the difference between a groundhog and a woodchuck?

Trivia #3: The NFL started playing a 16 game schedule in what year?

Personal Record (PR) – it’s such a track ‘n field thing. He PR’d in the high jump. I PR’d in the mile. She PR’d in the long jump. If a guy hits a career high in homeruns, why don’t they say he PR’d? He had 47 assists last night which was a PR for him. Please! Hey buddy, you didn’t ‘PR’, you ran your best time.

They said it: “I don’t eat green eggs and ham, but if Al Horford is cookin’ it, I’m eatin’ it! – Celtics radio colorman Cedric “Cornbread” Maxwell while Horford was going off on Monday night.

Murder, you’re doing it wrong: A South Carolina man accused of strangling his girlfriend died of a heart attack while burying her in the yard.

Article I’ll skip: First image of black hole at center of the Milky Way released by astronomers.

More on the NFL schedule next week but… week 18 sees the Patriots traveling to Buffalo. Let’s hope that there are no playoff implications for the Pats riding on that game!

Bruins/Hurricanes game 7!

Speaking of the Bruins… the Celtics are in trouble tonight in Milwaukee. They are going to need Robert Williams and everything they’ve got. Do you believe?

You’ve got to bleed for the dancer.

Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: Christian Yelich, now tied with the most times in his career hitting for the cycle (3), has done so each time versus the Cincinnati Reds. If that isn’t useless information, look to trivia question #2.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: This is a bit of a stretch but work with me… Sonny Leon, the jockey who led Rich Strike to an improbably Kentucky Derby win as an 80-1 long shot, has been suspended for careless riding. The decision to sideline Leon stems from a late April race at an Ohio track when it was determined that the horse he was riding, One Glamorous Gal, intentionally interfered with another horse during the race.

R.I.P. Bob Lanier (73) – A Hall-of-Famer and eight-time all-star, Lanier played 14 seasons with the Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks and averaged 20.1 points and 10.1 rebounds for his career.

DYK: Bob Lanier was said to wear size 22 shoes, although that was disputed by a Converse representative, who told the Atlanta Constitution that Lanier wore size 18 ½. The ‘22’ was a Korean size.

Trivia #1 answer: Where did Bob Lanier attend college? – Rutgers, St. Bonaventure, St. John’s, Grambling, Seton Hall, St. Louis, UMass Dartmouth – Lanier led St. Bonaventure to the Final Four in 1970.
Trivia #2 answer: What’s the difference between a groundhog and a woodchuck? – There is no difference. The terms ‘woodchuck’ and ‘groundhog’ are interchangeable.

Ttrivia #3 answer: The NFL started playing a 16 game schedule in what year? – 1978

It feels good to walk into a store and buy whatever I want without looking at the prices. Shout out to Dollar Tree!

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

Happy National Frog Jumping Day!

Ooo oooohhhh
Ooo oooohhhh
Come on and dance, come on and dance
Let’s make some romance
You know the night is fallin’
And the music’s callin’
And we’ve got to get down to Swingtown

We’ve been workin’ so hard
We’ve been workin’ so hard
Come on baby
Come on baby let’s dance
Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on

– The Steve Miller Band
