      Agreed, and it’s mostly fast food places, which really aren’t that good anyway. I try to avoid chain restaurants for the most part (unless they’re small local chains) in favor of local good restaurants.

    Thoroughly enjoyed Drew’s stroll down memory lane. The p0rn queen story was before I found KSR; but, that was hilarious. Two observations,
    1. KSR has really dialed it down since then, and
    2. Over 200 comments, and I didn’t recognize any of those user names.

      That was before log ins were required, and you could, for example, use a celebrity name and make fun of something or humorously criticize something that would be ironic for that person.

      One example about no log ins was someone might call themselves Bobby Petrino while criticizing a coach for a scandal.

      It was fun to be able to constantly change your name, but then, we could never have gotten to know each other without an identity.

      True. I usually used this one but might make one up depending on the post.

      But some of them, I really don’t want to know. Anyway, we could identify them by their silly comments about Cal, and how we haven’t won 14 titles the last ten years.

    How about Benny on punt return coverage last night? Guy catches the punt, and Benny chases him back and back and back, and drops him for a 15 yard loss…what was that guy thinking; just take the tackle for no gain.



    • runningunnin.454

      Game was Sat; but, I didn’t see it live.

      I may be overly optimistic, but I think Benny will end up being a star (for more than just the BBN).



    • runningunnin.454
      10:59 am August 21, 2019 Permalink

      The game was on NFL channel; but, the announcers were from the Steeler network…and they agree with you; during the game, they interview two Steelers, and they asked them about Benny. Cool.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I hate the Steelers but I love Benny. Is that a dichotomy?



    • runningunnin.454
      11:21 am August 21, 2019 Permalink

      What’s with all the Steeler hate? I loved to watch Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, and Mean Joe Greene. What about the immaculate Reception?

      Oh, SORRY. There seems to be a lot of hate on KSR comments for random NFL and NBA teams that I don’t understand.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:50 am August 21, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, it was frustrating in the 70’s when we would have a good team and still get beat by the Steelers toward the end and not make the playoffs. One year Bradshaw was hurt and they still beat us when we would have been in if we had won. Half the league didn’t make the playoffs then. Only one wildcard.

    Advice for Drew and everybody; don’t get Burger King’s tacos…terrible.

      We went to a Waffle House once and they too were out of waffle mix. And the “W”

    My daughter texted me yesterday to tell me she was going to be on the news! Thankfully, it was for all the right seasons. 🙂 WLKY was doing a story on her volleyball team and the obstacles they have had to overcome with their coach being in the hospital with an autoimmune disorder. She appears on camera talking about it – I told her last night that she did a good job appearing on camera without picking her nose.

    On top of what they have faced this year, the article does not mention the tragic loss of their head coach last year when he died suddenly just a week after the end of the season. Hopefully the team will weather the storm and find smooth sailing for the season ahead.

      My next door neighbor moved up here from Florida last year. Very friendly folks – we get along very well. He put up a flagpole with Old Glory and right before it, a Trump 2020 flag. Part of me really wants to go on Amazon and order one of those mini Trump Baby balloons and run it up the flagpole one night, but I don’t feel like I know him well enough to gauge his reaction yet. Sometimes you just can’t read how someone will react to a joke.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:41 am August 21, 2019 Permalink

      Some people have no sense of humor regarding politics…and it’s all so hysterical. He didn’t have the Trump flag on top of Old Glory, did he? That’s a no no.



    • RealCatsFan
      12:15 pm August 21, 2019 Permalink

      No, he had it below it. You are right – some people can’t take a joke, which is why I hesitate. I kind of feel that if you wear your political aspirations on your sleeve (or your flagpole) for all to see, you better have a thick skin and a sense of humor.

    Went to SEC tournament one year with three friends; and, we stopped at Cracker Barrel on the way back.

    Hot take: PF Changs is really overrated. Their sauces are too sweet and sugary, they usually overcook their chicken so that it’s dry and tough, and their veggies are usually undercooked verging on raw.

      I don’t know that it’s that different, but they make a nice sandwich. Their bread is made fresh everyday, and they slice your deli meat to order right onto your sandwich.
