Two For Tuesday
8/14/2012 12:27 PM
The Show With No Name was trying to make the world a better place once again today. Our discussions on sports, pop culture, and American flag etiquette should put to rest the question of whether we know what we are talking about. Make no mistake here please. We don't. But, what sets us apart from others, is we make nary an assertion that we do.
It was a Two for Tuesday this morning. Before you go thinking it's because we were feelin' a little more benevolent than other times, slow your roll. We are grateful that you are listening. And we want to give all of you gifts and prizes all the time. Heck fire! I know a car dealer that wants to give away cars to ya and restaurants that want to feed you for a year! I'm not kiddin'. Am I? The real reason that we doubled up today is because we are going to be ransacking Graceland Friday and in the words of Sheriff Buford T. Justice when asked by his son Junior for hush puppies...."We ain't got time for that crap"!! So, we had two chances for ya to spend some time in Tunica, Mississippi with our Whale of a Weekend giveaway. The Artist Formerly Known as The Outlaw, Tommy Smith, said this may be the earliest a prize was given away on the program. I got that going for me. Which is nice. The second time we played was on the verge of going horribly wrong! We had a female caller and I didn't think she stood a chance. I didn't follow my own instructions and attempted to give her hints. All of my stumbling around gave her the opportunity to google the answers and Tommy just enough time to nearly blow his stack! She won and we survived.
The Journey ticket give away almost went the same way. Fortunately, like some of you, Tommy drifted away and forgot how much he wanted to kill me here too. The first go 'round was a little muddied up with other caller comments on other topics. At this point I started noddin' off my dang self and by the time the 2nd opportunity arrived it was almost time for the show to be done for a Tuesday.
The Arkansas Razorbacks begin the season in 2 1/2 weeks. Tickets for the Little Rock games go on sale tomorrow at War Memorial. Charlie Staggs came up to hawk the highly sought after pieces of paper one last time. The conversation also centered in on the debate of Fayetteville over Little Rock games. We have got to sell out the games in LR or the money men that run the whole thing will yank the games from War Memorial as fast as those people yank those pups from their mamas and sell to you in Walmart parking lot!
UALR AD Chris Peterson called. Coach seemed to pick up on the fact that I said smoking cigarettes may play a part in if folks will attend an event at a smoke free facility. I will go. I don't have to smoke. It is easier to do it at a cold weather event though. That way your cigarette smoke can blend in with the cold breath. So I've heard, so I've heard.
Some throw away topics included your favorite Razorback memory at War Memorial. If your like David Bazzel, you could say it was a particular game YOU played in. How cool is that. Of course nowadays many high school teams have had the chance to play on the field so a lot more people might be able to say that. That's cool too. I didn't play there but, at last years high school Kickoff Classic, I nearly single handedly took Bazzel out at the knees and swim move around Anthony Lucas so fast he tripped over my gust of speed wind!! Also whether Knile Davis should practice at full speed. The majority said he should as long as he doesn't get hurt...no wait...what?
And last but certainly not least. It was on flag etiquette. Mainly on when is the flag lowered to half staff? We still don't know really, because it's at the discretion of the president. It is lowered now for just about anything that might make a certain group of people happy and not all Americans as a whole for reflection on the deceased or the event. Used to be you knew if a former president, governor, or senator type person had passed 'cause that's when you saw it lowered. Look, I'm not sure even I know what the heck I'm talking about now. Lets try this. How about we lower the Stars and Stripes on every pole in this country until all of our soldiers are home safe and sound. Nah that wouldn't work would it. If we did that it might make us realize that their are men and women fighting for OUR freedom that may never come home. We don't want a reminder of that every day do we.
