Hey Wilma! Thanks for the day off.

I don't have much to write tonight. I have been at home all day because of Hurricane Wilma. The storm was more powerful coming through the east side of the state than most had predicted with sustained winds reaching up to 65 mph, but it still wasn't enough to cause anything more than some minor cosmetic damge to the area. My neighbor's flag pole fell down and the sign at the entrance to my neighborhood is long gone but, other than that, the day amounted to a free day off of work. I never lost power for anything more than a minute or two and was even able to go pick up a pizza from the spot around the corner from me by the mid-afternoon. Of course, you can't do much on a day like today other than sit around and watch TV. I almost got on the internet to write up a weekend wrapup but quickly changed my mind when I heard a transformer blow a block or two away. I enjoy writing in this space, but not more than I love internet porn...and that's exaclty the sacrifice that I'd have been making if my computer sustained major damage because I was on the web during a hurricane. It wasn't the most exciting of days, but it was a free day off of work during a week that I already sees me taking Friday off for my annual journey to Jacksonville for the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.

I'll touch on a few of the weekend's more exciting events (Giants-Broncos, Two big SEC games, Last night's amazing Game 2, etc.) as well as tonight's Monday Night game during tomorrow's update. That's all I've got for now. Me and Jim Cantore are gonna go to the bar and tie one on. It's been a long day for both of us.

Thanks for the Jim Cantore reference, he's a badass.

Also, the Doug from the State reference as the title to your last post was even better.

Good to know you didn't die in the hurricane.

I'm glad that somebody got the Doug reference. It's amazing how many people didn't watch or weren't aware of The State. Coincidentally, I DID almost die this weekend but it was from heroin, not a hurricane.

Cuz I'm Doug and you're Dad and ne'er the twain shall meet.
