2021 River City Strongman

I thought I was done with strongman contests, but when Chris gets back in the Hosting game I guess I’ll need to get back in the contest game. It’s just 8 weeks after my next weightlifting meet so it’ll be a gear-change into heavier weights.

And it’ll be in the middle of Team Tennis season, so it’s all uncharted water. I’m stoked.

And these are consistently the most comfortable meet shirts I’ve gotten. I have to size up, but they’re worth it.

The cold open here is really a triumph and a testament to the friendship I share with Adam.

Back in the CoD saddle with the gang

I got a PS5 over the weekend. This is my first “real” console since the Xbox 360, waaaaay back when. Like, so long ago that it is probably in the MovableType era of falfa.com.

My pals have been current with the systems and they were kind enough to drag me along with them through some Call of Duty Warzone last night. It was a fun time and, despite what this video might suggest, it wasn’t all spent trying to get my audio working.

So now I’m downloading and installing a version of the game that will let me get some multiplayer reps so I’m not a complete anchor when we’re Warzoning.

Video games are fun.

After an extended break thanks to Mike catching COVID (nice work, duumy), we're back at it again. There is a lot of followup.

A chilly basket of serves

Got out in the sun and hit a couple of baskets of balls. Team tennis starts in a couple of weeks and I’d rather not be a heap of rust and pudding.

I might be out of the woods, Covid-wise. I still have a lingering cough but none of the other classic (awful) symptoms. There’s still so much unknown about this virus, but I’m going to play it like I’m almost whole and get back to regular life.

Office Cleanup Ephemera

I went to this game with my dad. I think maybe my sister had gotten the tickets and couldn’t go? No matter, it was at RFK Stadium, a small stadium by modern standards and a great place to see a ballgame. At the time, Boomer Esiason’s 522 passing yards were the third-most all-time in a single game, and were the most ever at RFK.

Our seats were in the end zone and just high enough that we could see the whole field. It was like the 3rd-person view in the old 2K football games. Watching receivers break open while the ball was in flight was awesome.

And Arizona won in overtime after Washington puked up a 14-point lead with 10 minutes left in the game. Super-funny to a couple of Giants fans on a free Sunday afternoon.
