Thursday Potpourri is back. Here are some random thoughts from the past week:
- “Deflate”gate is in full force, with the New England Patriots being accused of deflating footballs in the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts so they could have an edge in the poor weather. My opinion – sure they did it. How else do you explain it? 11 of 12 footballs deflated? Did it make a difference in the final outcome? Whose to say, but I don’t think the 40 point drumming of the Colts is due to a deflated football. My prediction is that New England will lose a draft pick or two if found guilty.
- My pick for the Super Bowl this year, between the Seahawks and the Patriots, I’ll go with the Seahawks.
- I took a trip to McKay used bookstore today in Nashville. I had never been to their newer location. Its the size of a gymnasium – its massive – and its filled with books, dvds, cds, electronics, and more. All these items are used, and a rather decent bargain. I filled 3 totes with books, and 1 tote with DVDS, and made a decent amount of money selling those. Word to the wise: If you’re over there often, take the store credit – you’ll get practically double the cash you would receive. It is a very clean, friendly environment. I highly recommend it
