A Sad St Patrick’s Day
It was a tough day for me yesterday on so many levels. It started off with arriving at work and finding out that my driving schedule for the day would have me working an extra long day, there were extra stops on the route that I would be required to deliver too and the amount of product on the truck to off load was larger than I have seen in a long time.
I tried to reassure myself that it didn’t matter how late I had to work today, I was not going to be able to stop by the pub today after work for a beer and celebrate St Patrick’s Day with a few friends, all bars and restaurants are closed due to the threat of the corona virus spreading.
Then, as if there wasn’t enough bad luck already doled out for me in one day, the news broke that Tom Brady will no longer be playing football for the New England Patriots. I thought to myself, how could Robert Kraft and Bill Bellicheck allow this to happen. A salary cap issue for sure but to allow the greatest franchise player in the history of New England sports walk away towards the end of his career seemed crazy. I could go on forever on how stupid this decision is and how the Patriots rebuilding process will take years to get established.
Bill’s Will has struck again and there is a plan in place. I am just waiting for the ink to dry so I can get my hands on it and read it over. Although come to think of it, I never got a chance to read the plan the day Bill benched Malcolm Butler when the Patriots lost to the Eagles on the day when Brady still set an Super Bowl record for most passing yards and the Pats still lost. Or how about the game plan for when Gronk retired from football last year and Bill made no moves to fill that position. We saw how bad that turned out last year.
Well there is one thing I can say without any reservations. It looks like I will be following/watching a lot more of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers games next year.
Spring equinox (also called the first day of spring or vernal equinox) falls on Thursday, March 19, which is earlier than it’s been in over a century. This year, will be the earliest spring we’ll have seen in our lives. The last time spring arrived this early was in 1896—a whopping 124 years ago! The best thing about the equinox, the length of day and night is equal in all parts of the world. Tomorrow we get to enjoy more daylight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets.
