Happy Gameday, Bronco Fans. I’m excited to see the team back on The Blue tonight. Hopefully, they’ll let us breathe a bit easier this week. Those pesky Huskies about gave me a heart attack with the way they stayed in the game. If I had a post game song of the week would be “Slip Sliding Away”. That field was awful. But, on to this week. We’re always #AttackingTheFuture here at the Diggity’s.
I’m just wondering out loud here but why is cranberry and apple juice called Cran-Apple? I think it would be way more funny if it was called Crapple Juice. Or do you think the makers of Snapple would sue for it being too closely named?….What is the difference between Domestic Abuse and getting indicted for harming your child? I see none. If convicted, Adrian Peterson should miss 6 games under the new policy. And that’s on top of what’s going on right now….I’m up and ready for this UConn game and I’m going through Facebook just to see what’s going on. I see an Alberston’s ad that says “If you wear your Ducks jersey in the store, get 10% off your purchase.” Of course you know I’m not a Duck fan, so am I being discriminated against?….
Update on the Alberston’s/Oregon situation. There really isn’t an update actually. I emailed them on Saturday for clarification and they haven’t gotten back to me. Since I’m in customer service, this lack of said “customer service” is terrifically frustrating….This game has gotten scary close. The Broncos have to out score UConn 21-0 in the 4th to get to my score prediction….Close win today. The defense stepped up with a couple of scores. The Broncos need an “all 3 phases” game to beat better teams. We haven’t seen that yet….I’m a bit annoyed at some of our fan base. It’s crazy how some of them think. So, the Broncos didn’t blow out UConn. But, when they’re up and you’re “dooming and glooming”, that’s ludicrous. Just my opinion….Also, just because I don’t get paid to write about football, have a sense of humor in this column, and /or don’t profess my expertise on football, that doesn’t mean I don’t know football. Remember, without a computer, some “experts” would need remedial training on the sport….I don’t usually want to see Ben Affleck movies but I’m intrigued by “Gone Girl”. We may have to check that out….Games I saw at least a bit of: Boise State/UConn (all), Iowa/Iowa St., Louisiana-Lafayette/Ole Miss, Arkansas/Texas Tech, Oregon/Wyoming, Michigan/Miami of Ohio, Va Tech/ECU, Georgia/South Carolina, Utah State/Wake Forest, Kentucky/Florida, Tennessee/Oklahoma, USC/BC, Texas A&M/Rice, Nebraska/CSU-Fresno, and Nevada/Arizona. From 9 AM to probably 11 PM-ish. So, you can say it was pretty serious!….Watching Sunday NFL Countdown and Ray Lewis is preaching about being a role model and leading by example. Looks like Ray Rice wasn’t listening very well….I watched Miss America and as all the women were introducing themselves, I was thrown off by West Virginia. Everyone else was being cute and up-to-date with their intros. West Va – “Take me home, country roads. I’ll be your mountain mama!” Seriously? As much as I love John Denver songs, try to stay in the now just a little….And Miss Ohio’s talent was ventriloquism while singing “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”. What?….I’m a Chargers fan and I think it’s awesome that they beat the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. I don’t think Richard Sherman was exposed as a “normal person”. Keenan Allen was the Rookie of the Year for a reason….I was driving on my way to work and noticed someone holding up traffic. Much to my surprise, it was someone with a 2C plate. Thanks, Canyon County, for holding me up way over here in Eugene….I like the new helmets this week. The chrome face masks are pretty awesome. I’m sure that Rocky Long will complain about some reflections being an unfair advantage….One of the highlights of the week is Donald Trump saying the Wilson family should thank him for driving up the Buffalo Bills’ sale price. You’d have even more money if d-bagging translated into dollars!…
I know there are tons of issues you need to cover, Commissioner Roger Goodell, but you need to actually show up on time. Your 3 PM press conference started at 3:15 PM. The small things are important in getting the big things going. Just sayin’!…Single people are now a majority in America. That’s 50.2% of people 16 and over. So, since I’m married to Mrs. Diggity, does that make me a minority?…Mrs. Diggity got to see the Middle Child in Salem this week. He has a position volunteering with the TVCC Womens’ soccer team and they were in town. She made the one hour trip to see the Lady Chukars get a win. I am just going to admit that I am jealous because I had to work. Adult responsibility=BLAH!…Made a Banquet Breakfast Bake for Mrs. Diggity & I today. Good to see that MRE-like food is moving into the private sector….I had a test to take that was supposed to start at 10:30 AM. I got there at 10:15. Because they were having “technical issues”, my test didn’t get underway until 12. I know I didn’t have anything going on besides college football today but c’mon. I love college football. Don’t waste my time.
I dedicate the song of the week to the Ragin’ Cajuns. Maybe the team with the Red Hot Chili Pepper as a mascot will “Give It Away” multiple times.
So that’s it for this week. I’m really not a bitter man but this week had some super-annoying content available. I’ll try to be a bit nicer next week. Okay, probably not. Enjoy the game tonight. GO BRONCOS.
