TOYS AND GAMES: At the Bar…

At the bar…

A guy sitting next to Patti and me at the Channelside Hooters had a pitcher in front of him, no mug, said he was working on his third of the night.

I could see him telling his wife with a straight face: “Only had three beers.”

Anybody else notice that the strength coach for Alabama’s football team, Scott Cochran, just got a $105,000 raise? That bump moved him to $525,000 per season, which, according to USA Today, gives him a higher paycheck than 10 head coaches in the Mid-American Conference.

I don’t know how estimates of this kind are conducted, but Wednesday’s victory parade for the NBA champion Cavs supposedly drew 1.3 million to the downtown Cleveland area. Having spent most of Wednesday morning trying to figure out how to navigate the maze for a return to my hotel, I would have guessed more. Of note: Ohio lawmakers have passed the use of medical marijuana. I can tell you there were a lot of folks getting treatment on Wednesday.

Finally, from Mo Howard: “If there’s anything I like better than honey and ketchup, it’s baloney and whip cream! And we haven’t got any.”
