My apologies for the lack of updates but I haven’t had a chance to sit down and type. At least that’s my excuse for not having any good ideas to write about. Last night the Spring rec basketball league started and today I drove down to AC for a roofing show.
Compared to some of the leagues I’ve been a part of the Philly league is a step down in competition. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that I play any better. To make a short story short, we blew the team out by 25 points and it wasn’t even close from the first bucket scored. I wouldn’t even have made this part of the blog except that I took a Falcon shoulder right into my solar plexus and I think the dude may have broke my rib. I’m exaggerating a bit but I couldn’t lay on my side when I tried to sleep and was in discomfort the entire day today. Without being an MD, I think it’s bruised but I’m praying to god I feel better by Sunday when I have a 15k I paid 60 bucks for. Once again though these leagues are proving to be more trouble than there worth and I’m turning into an old man.
Another wonderful breaking story has to do with the bank and if you follow my tweets, you already know what happened. Before I went into the convention center today at the Taj, I went to TD bank where they have Penny Arcade which counts coins. I had accumulated a few hundred bucks of coins and they serve no purpose other than taking up space. I had them all in a single plastic bag that was already starting to break. As I took them out of the car, a few coins popped out of a hole in the bag and I figured it wasn’t an issue. I was supporting the bottom with my hand and as I walked up to the door, released my support hand to open the door, and that’s when the bottom came out. I was super lucky that they broke when I was inside the doors because all the coins sprawled everywhere inside the entrance way to the bank. I started cracking up because it was so ridiculous how many coins were on the floor. Fortunately the guy who worked there brought me some envelopes and I collected the coins by myself because he was too old to bend over. Penny Arcade lets you guess the total amount and if you get within $1.99 you get something. I guessed $250 and it was $263 which was close but I don’t understand how this is a guessing game when you can obviously get it right if you want. The prize must have sucked. They usually take 8% of the money for the service but waive it if you donate a dollar to charity. I donated the 8%.
That’s it for this blog post. I have an idea or two in the pipeline but it’s still too half assed and I haven’t been able to complete it. We’ll see tomorrow if I can come up with some content again.
