I have friends who bowl frequently. They actually have their own ball, their own shoes and everything else. The other week I asked one of my friends which was harder in bowling: the perfect game or the perfect 20?
We all know the perfect game is essentially bowling 12 consecutive strikes. The perfect 20 is a concept I think about often but never see. The perfect 20 is a game in which the goal is to score 20 points. But in order to do that, you must knock down the 7-pin on the first roll of a frame, then follow it up by knocking down the 10-pin. That’s it. All 10 frames, you must do just that.
My buddy says the perfect 20 is harder. It makes sense. You have to bowl the ball 20 times compared to the 12 in the perfect game. Accuracy is much harder for it. But I still am not convinced. What do you think?
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the ugly sweaters. We have seen all the stories about them.
Yet somehow, the NBA ones are the worst. Since the Christmas uniforms are ugly every year, it just makes sense that these are equally ugly.
The fact that these are player names, team logos, lots of distracting designs make this the ultimate ugly sweater. Check them out here. What do you think about them?
Here are 10 thoughts after watching the Week 11 games from Sunday.
1– Even though the 49ers won thanks to Eli Manning and his five interceptions, the 49ers don’t look strong. Last week a few things had to go right just for them to win. This week, they couldn’t find much separation from the Giants in their win. Even though they now have won two in a row, it’s not a very impressive win streak. The defense has played better but the offense is still a mystery. The running game looked OK for the most part but the passing game is still a work in progress.
Could it be more Jim Harbaugh future coaching distractions? I don’t know. But a win is a win until you start realizing that a trend appears. Then these wins are just concerning. What are the 49ers going to do about this offense?
Last night I drove up to Bakersfield. I had never been there before and it was a two-hour drive I thought I would dread. Luckily I was going there because the ECHL Bakersfield Condors were hosting a Seinfeld night. I just had to go. My old college buddy Mark lives out there so it was good to catch up and enjoy some good Seinfeld fun.
Before that, we stopped by Red House BBQ in Tehachapi. Delicious!!!
Brisket with mac & cheese, fried pickles and a piece of the Indian taco bread.
After that, we chilled for a bit before heading out to the game. I didn’t know what to expect. They had a rickshaw race and a costume competition that never actually happened. It was a bummer that not a lot of people showed up. Do they not like Seinfeld?
Adidas is terrible. Here is another example of why.
My WrestleMania ticket I will end up selling.
I knew that WrestleMania tickets were going on sale today. It was actually the presale. But with presales, you know that if you can get your hands on a code, then you are good to go. I didn’t have a code. But of course, that’s easy to find. I hopped on Google and Twitter, did a search and found the codes (there were like five different ones) I needed for the presale.
One of the toughest things when trying to buy popular tickets is the system you have in place to get them. The first thing I had to make sure was that my Internet was working and that I had both my Chrome and Firefox browser up. Firefox seems to work better with Ticketmaster. I don’t know why.
Secondly, you have to have a buddy system. If you’re trying to buy the tickets on your own, it’s harder to maximize the potential tickets. Luckily, I bought tickets and my friend bought tickets. Now I have extras I don’t need and I can resell them for a profit.
Dolphins have confirmed this uniform combination for Thursday night.
The Miami Dolphins, for the longest time, have a very unique uniform system. For home day games, they wear all white. Even when they tell fans to wear aqua for their “Aqua Out” game, the team still wore white because it was a day game. But for night games, they always wear their aqua jerseys. That’s a welcomed site because I think their aqua jerseys are nice.
This Monday night, they’re going to pair the jersey with aqua pants. This is the first time they’ve worn an all-aqua look in almost a decade. Overall, they are 2-1 when going with the all-aqua look. This new combination looks promising.
But here’s my thing about the Dolphins identity. I love their all-white look. In fact, I am a fan of teams who wear all-white. There’s something about a clean uniform like that that really gets my attention. With the popping colors of aqua and orange, the Dolphins pull it off nicely. The fact that they wear it for day games (to combat the heat) is a fine system. Unfortunately, because they haven’t been good for so long, seven of their eight home games are always day games.
If the Dolphins were a better team, maybe I wouldn’t complain as much. But their all-white is too much and because of that, I openly welcome the all-aqua just for a change of pace. I hope that the Dolphins get better and wear their aqua jerseys more often. I am not calling for the mono-aqua to be a more frequent thing, but I’ll take it now because of what we’ve seen lately.
