Not much new in Average Andy’s world.
Been enjoying Big Brother (Thank good for the DVR as it has been moved to different times and different nights due to Football). Looking forward to Survivor and Amazing Race. All 3 CBS reality shows are still the best of all reality shows. I did tape the 1st episode of UTOPIA but have not gotten around to watch it (and am now several episodes behind).
Tough loss for Lehigh Football in their season opener. Was a non conference game so really has no effect as the only way the Mountain Hawks will make the play-offs is to win the Patriot League. Tough game again this weekend against New Hampshire.
If the Mets could beat the Washington Nationals, they may have had a shot at sneaking back into the wild card race. But they can’t so they wont.
Really enjoying the new US album (Songs of Innocence) that was given out for free on i-tunes. U2 again showing that they play by there own rules (Much like the Grateful Dead, and Metallica). These band are some of the most successful of all time, and ignored the corporate line by doing things differently than the rest. I’m sure some corporate lawyer is going nuts on how much money U2 is potentially losing by giving away an album for free. To them, all money is all that matters. Same for the players associations for the major sports leagues. Who cares if it makes you happy, and if its will pay off in the log run, the only thing that matters is how much you can make right now.
I say good for U2 and thank you to the band members and their management.
Lastly, RIP Richard Kiel. Played Jaws in the James Bond Movies as well as appearing in the classic Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man”. He will be missed
