This will be a poor-man’s version of my regular, in-season Friday posts. Those posts include staff lunch info and a song of the day, so I reckon I can do that much today.
We didn’t have a staff lunch. In fact, we didn’t take lunch at all, as everyone was working diligently through the noon hour. At about 12:55 pm Coach Rich and I found a half-eaten box of doughnuts and a couple sodas left over from the TV production guys, so I had a maple bar and a Coke Zero for lunch. CLUTube dudes, we owe you two Coke Zeros…
This week’s Song of the Weekend is from Jimmy Buffett. The title cracks me up; The Weather is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful, and it sounds like this one is a live version from Camden Yards in Baltimore. I picked this song because someone that doesn’t live here, where the weather is not nearly as nice, told me that he was awaiting my standard “practice and weather” blog post.
I am now leaving the building to check-out the #3-ranked CLU baseball team. From there, I will be traveling to both Vons (rib eyes for $5.99 per pound and whole chickens for $.88 per pound) and Albertsons (untrimmed tri tip roast, $3.99 per pound. Use the trimmings to oil your grill grates) to hit the weekend meat sales and purchase some charcoal for my old man’s beloved Weber Kettle. I’m going to coach some Little League baseball, I’m going to enjoy the company of my beautiful family and the sun shining on my face, we’ll have a couple friends over at some point in time I’m sure, I’ll listen to some more Buffett and some good country music, and hopefully I’ll catch a nap in there somewhere. Life is good, God is great, be where your feet are!
