Bright and early tomorrow morning…..The Key West Lou Blog Talk Radio Show. Seven o’clock. The Key West sun is not yet up at that time. But…..that is the time! One half hour of chit chat. A call in show. You can telephone me from anywhere in the world to make a statement, ask a question, challenge my thoughts, etc.
Grab a cup of coffee and join me! Topics revolve around current events. More than enough to talk about.
The show can be found at www.blogtalkradio.com/key-west-lou. Nationally, pick up your telephone and call. Internationally, use Skype.
Syracuse basketball yesterday. We won. Beat South Florida 55-40.
The score says it all. Not a good game. Not up to the Syracuse standards of recent years. The team appears to be good. But not great. Two problems as I see it. Great talent not blending together. The smooth moving machine is not yet there. The other problem is that the team is like Syracuse of old. They cannot make foul shots.
I watched the game at The Big Ten Sports Bar.
It was old home week. Syracuse fans from last year gathered. It was good to see them back. All nice people.
I sat with Dan and Lisa Reardon. Dan and Lisa own a restaurant in Skaneateles, New York. Loyal Key West snow birds. They spend the month of January here each year.
Watching the game was difficult. Sin and temptation surrounded me. Everyone drinking. Beer, wine and hard liquor. Even worse, eating! Wings, nachos, burgers, and the like. I could smell every dish. Taste every drink.
I almost capitulated and ordered a drink and order of wings.
We will all be back again wednesday night to watch the Syracuse/Providence game. May providence be with me!
Tonight, the college football game of the year! Alabama v. Notre Dame. I will be pulling for Notre Dame. Though I expect Alabama to win.
I will be watching at the Big Ten Sports Bar again. This time with a different set of friends. Jean and Joe Thornton are Alabama grads. Dave attended Alabama. I will be with them amongst others.
There is a pomposity in Washington. Our Congressional leaders erroneously think they know everything. I have come up with a solution. Let them visit Key West for week. Dress down to shorts and a tee shirt. Forget shaving for a day or two. Live in Key West time.
If that does not change them, nothing will.
Enjoy your day!
