Quiet Weekend

Well, we pulled out of Long Beach at 1000 Saturday morning right on schedule.

We'd had our safety and lifeboat drills by 1130, so I had a light lunch, and took a nap.

Proceeded to finish reading "Patriot Dawn", and watched "Casino" before hitting the hay at 2200.

Today was a "No Work" day for most of us, so I started watching the PBS series "Warplane", narrated by Stacey Keach.

If you haven't seen it, it's great, and Keach, as usual, does a great job narrating it.

The IT guys set up streaming video on the big TV in the Lido Lounge, and football was enjoyed by all.

Except me.

I. DON'T. Watch. Football.

Period.

"Pro" football has to be the stupidest scam ever foisted on the American "Sports Fan".

How ANYBODY can take a nominal ONE HOUR game, and bloat it out to FOUR FREAKING HOURS is beyond me.

And I won't even go into the obscene money paid to the thugs on the field, the team owners, and the ticket sellers.

It's almost as bad as "Pro" basketball, but I won't go there, either.

ANYWAY....the ship's catering crew set up a nice hot buffet for all the people watching the game, and we had hot dogs, burgers, and meatballs in red sauce.

Hope you all have a good week!

  3. I'm glad you are feeling better. I did attempt to watch the Colts play in the Super Bowl a couple years ago. I couldn't stay with it, start, stop, start stop, commercials, start stop. No thanks

Keep it down to a low boil, please!
