A few of my favorite things

Growing up a football player and fan in Northern Indiana, having the Notre Dame Fighting Irish as one of my favorite teams was only natural. And they still are. So I'm happy to be following their game against Louisville this afternoon.

Then as a transplanted Texan I found it only natural to fit in with this state's love of football. And among my favorite Texas teams are the Texas A&M Aggies who are playing a late afternoon game. When the Notre Dame game ends I'll be able to switch to a local AM radio station to follow the 2nd half of the Aggies' game.

And at 19:00 local time I'll have my Saturday night favorite Svengoolie to watch.

The pandemic and lockdown restrictions may have me stuck at home, but that doesn't prevent me from enjoying some of my favorite things.

And the adventure continues.

The view from my recliner...

Friday Night Football

... late on Friday night as I listen to the Houston Cougars vs. BYU Cougars game playing through the TuneIn Radio App on my tablet.

Earlier this even the app was buffering a lot when I listened to the SMU-Tulane Game, especially during the first half of play, but then it settled down and has been steady and reliable since.

Hard to beat good college football on the radio, you know. Unless you're a young guy out there on the field, of course. But all the rest of us can listen, and remember, and enjoy.

And the adventure continues.

Blogging changes

Those large-ish ... listed and logged daily posts that I've been posting here recently will remain where they are, but all new ones, starting with today's, will be posted to my new Listed|Roscoe blog which is still very much under construction but which is operational.

The new blog will have (unless it becomes a spam magnet) a guestbook for those who wish to leave comments, and will have two easy ways to subscribe: either by email or by RSS feed.

Links to new posts at this Roscoe's Notebook, which I'm now going to refer to as a micro-blog, and at my new Listed|Roscoe blog will both be found in the sidebar of my website if one chooses to look for them there.

And the adventure continues.
