Travel! Travel!

January 21, 2010


I am a little bit late posting today, but rarely is there a post at all on Monday. Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams won their divisional championship games Sunday and are Super Bowl-bound. Their fans are happy, although for the rest of us the two games left a lot to be desired in the competitiveness department. I’ll have to be for Kansas City. That’s the home of Andrews McMeel Syndication and GoComics. I’ve been there several times, and it’s a nice little city. (Try to go in spring or fall.) Of course, San Francisco is nice, too, and you can go there any time of year.

  1. Well, hello, Villagers. I guess I get to be first! No particular news, so I guess I’ll just tell you it’s supposed to be the kind of January day people move to Tucson for—-“sunny and 75.”

  2. U of Virginia basketball coach is Tony Bennett. He’s a decent basketball coach and won the National Championship. Anyway I thought I heard him say:

    The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gray
    The glory that was Rome is of another day
    I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
    I’m going home to my city by the Bay
    I left my heart in San Francisco

    • Just to be pedantic: There was no “Super Bowl I”; on 1/17/67, the Chiefs lost to the Packers in The AFL-NFL World Championship Game; the “Super Bowl” sobriquet didn’t come around until the next year. Although it is common to apply “Super Bowl” to the first game retroactively, it is incorrect.

      I will now go on to explain every reason that – or anything remotely it – matters:

  3. Seen on the InterWebNet over the weekend:
    The big@$$ spider in my room is now named Cotton Eyed Joe because I want to know two things:
    -where did he come from
    -where did he go

  4. I’ve heard that name only as part of the lyrics to “The Gandy Dancers’ Ball”.
    “Oh, they danced on the ceiling and they danced on the wall….”
