Being fortunate

We – da’fundamentals – are fortunate.   Buddies send us things like the following – sensible brief offerings – not like the stuff we write/publish.  Pls read and enjoy:

Don Meredith, Dallas Cowboy Quarterback, once said: “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.”

Harry Neale, professional hockey coach:  “Last year we couldn’t win at home and we were losing on the road.  My failure as a coach was that I couldn’t think of anyplace else to play.”

Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver: “Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch.”

Doug Sanders, professional golfer:  “I’m working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time.  If I can just die after lunch on Tuesday, everything will be perfect.”

Mickey Lolich, Detroit Tigers pitcher:  “All the fat guys watch me and say to their wives, ‘See, there is a fat guy doing great.  Bring me another beer.’”

Tommy Lasorda, Los Angeles Dodgers manager:  “I found out that it’s not good to talk about my troubles.  Eighty percent of the people who hear them don’t care and the other twenty percent are glad I’m having them.”

E.J. Holub, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker regarding his twelve knee operations:  “My knees look like they lost a knife fight with a midget.”

Vic Braden, tennis instructor:  “My theory is that if you buy an ice cream cone and make it hit your mouth, you can learn to play tennis. If you stick it on your forehead, your chances aren’t as good.”

Walt Garrison, Dallas Cowboys fullback when asked if Tom Landry ever smiles:  “I don’t know. I only played there for nine years.”

John Breen, Houston Oilers:  “We were tipping off our plays. Whenever we broke from the huddle, three backs were laughing and one was pale as a ghost.”

Bum Phillips, New Orleans Saints, after viewing a lopsided loss to the Atlanta Falcons:  “The film looks suspiciously like the game itself.”

Al Hrabosky, major league relief pitcher:  “When I’m on the road, my greatest ambition is to get a standing boo.”

Paul Horning, Green Bay Packers running back on why his marriage ceremony was before noon:  “Because if it didn’t work out, I didn’t want to blow the whole day.”

Lou Holtz, Arkansas football coach:  “I have a lifetime contract. That means I can’t be fired during the third quarter if we’re ahead and moving the ball.”

Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had lost a game:  “I won’t know until my barber tells me on Monday.”

Bill Walton, Portland Trail Blazers:  “I learned a long time ago that ‘minor surgery’ is when they do the operation on someone else, not you.”

George MacIntyre, Vanderbilt football coach surveying the team roster that included 26 freshmen and 25 sophomores:  “Our biggest concern this season will be diaper rash.”

Rick Venturi, Northwestern football coach:  “The only difference between me and General Custer is that I have to watch the films on Sunday.”

And you thought Yogi was the only one whose mind worked this way…

“…limiting the spread of disease and allowing people freedom…”

We borrowed the above words from – https://apnews.com/d0e164a1903cd8bc9f939831de7174f1

There is a section in the writing entitled – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:       pls read

Words, people, governments and their worthiness

What can one say that is worthwhile when learning this nonsense?

Sit back folks.  Bob Hope and Jack Benny – God bless ‘em – would’ve had fun with this

Worth reading? Perhaps. Give it a go. You decide and answer.

Here is the website and the article (and a bit more below the link) we refer to above:   https://www.ccn.com/what-if-jeff-bezos-tries-to-acquire-the-struggling-u-s-postal-service/

What this guy found more interesting were the comments offered at the bottom of the article.

We ask this question - folks what on earth is really going on?  Influenza is now the top "media" focus - what next?   DEBT is our top focus...and folks we the people and the many media/government nincomPOOPs who benefit from DEBT sure ain't spending much time or focus on it.

FLU...DEBT...what's next?   Da' USPS....hmmnn...what on earth comes next?

Our answer...read a history book.

A bit more info (albeit limited) about our situation

These words from the above…

“The U.S. has the most confirmed cases and deaths of any nation, more than 555,000 and more than 22,000, respectively, according to Johns Hopkins University. In hard-hit New York, the number of deaths topped 700 for six straight days, but the increase in people who are hospitalized is slowing, in a hopeful sign.”
