Beginnings and endings.

This will make sense to two or three people in total. Sorry lazyweb, you’re not in the Cool Kids Club.

Tonight, at 9:00 PM EDT - the long darkness having passed - the 2005 NFL season begins. I am - quite surprisingly - neither pleased nor comforted by this fact.

The Good Doctor’s final comment of substance - written four days prior to his death to his beloved wife, Anita - read:

No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun - for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax - This won’t hurt.

The note - written in black marker - was titled Football Season Is Over.

Heavy words as a long month wears on.
