Football season is fast-approaching. Last year in Kansas was the first year in forever that I could count on seeing most of the games. It was the first year in many that I had weekends and Mondays off. I had cable television (but no ESPN or NFLN).
This year I’m even more geared up. It took three months here in Vegas to realize that I was missing a couple of network stations — NBC and CBS. Would giving my antenna two feet more in height really help that much?
I’d broken the crank earlier in the year, so I managed to get on the roof and push it up manually with a little muscle. The next windstorm made quick work of that job. Ultimately, I came up with a more permanent solution…
Cinder blocks. ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX. In the clubhouse I have NFLN and ESPN. I am NFL-ready! Go 49ers! (And Chiefs).
I’ve started a tough but potentially lucrative sales job. If all goes well, great. If not, I’ll be signing up with several temp and on-call agencies until I come up with a better plan. All this, while getting my business set up — I intend to set up at a large consumer show by the end of the year to get the ball rolling.
It rained again briefly. I think we’ve accumulated about an inch this year? Without further ado, rainbow pictures…
Ok, I swear the end of this rainbow is only two blocks away. A pot of gold? Perhaps in a casino vault.
