Meme from my sister-in-law, then tonight a look at the weekend in sports

10 Things You Don't Know About Me

1) I got my daughter watching Justice League and reading comic books for purely selfish reasons (there's a lot less Spongebob playing in the house right now), and am proud to no end that she can identify The Martian Manhunter and Hawkwoman.
2) I worry about losing my connection with my daughter as she gets older.
3) I miss coaching football, even with the stress that went with it.
4) In spite of how much I might talk, I am not really a social person, but I like to watch the comings and goings when in a bar, restaurant or some other nexus of the public.
5) I sometimes miss my students, pains in the ass that they were when I was still teaching high school English.
6) I have a soft place in my heart for Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and sometimes catch myself wishing that would actually happen in the Senate.
7) I am an avid sentimentalist.
8) I would like to once track down all my high school friends to see how each is doing. I don't need to be in touch, I would just like to know that they are doing well.
9) I get angry over the fact that disarmament demands have been made on the IRA over Sinn Fein's participation in the provisional Northern Ireland Parliament when the same demand is not being made on the UVF in regards to Ian Paisley's participation. I don't mean annoyed, I mean ball up a fist and beak something sort of angry.
10) I am a film snob, yet love certain bad films that I know are bad (The New Guy, I'm talking about you)

I feel the same way about bars and restaurants and, really public places in general. Like to sit with my back to the wall and people watch. And then talk smack about 'em.
