Happy Friday Blogger World. We finally made it to Friday. Is it just me or did this week drag on FOREVER? Ok, so it’s just me. In pure This is my world fashion I bring you Friday Fun Facts. Folks, today’s facts are kind of all over the place so try to stay with me. I understand, not an easy task.
We have a birthday. Today, Kevin Costner is celebrating his 54th birthday. Now, I like Kevin. Some of my friends think he’s a horrible actor, but I disagree. He’s put out some great hits over the years. Robin Hood, Dances with Wolves, Field of Dreams, The Bodyguard, and of course my favorite- Bull Durham. In honor of Kevin, I felt like I needed to share my favorite part of Bull Durham.
Larry: Excuse me, but what the hell's going on out here?
Crash Davis: Well, Nuke's scared because his eyelids are jammed and his old man's here. We need a live... is it a live rooster?
Crash Davis: We need a live rooster to take the curse off Jose's glove and nobody seems to know what to get Millie or Jimmy for their wedding present.
[to the players]
Crash Davis: Is that about right?
[the players nod]
Crash Davis: We're dealing with a lot of sh*t.
Larry: Okay, well, uh... candlesticks always make a nice gift, and uh, maybe you could find out where she's registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware pattern. Okay, let's get two! Go get 'em.
See, that’s some funny crap.
I don’t know if you guys heard but OU’s quarterback, Sam Bradford, decided to stay at OU for another year. The media was thrilled, and OU fans were beside themselves. The OKC mayor, the same guy that called Oklahomans fat, was so pumped that he declared Tuesday, or Wednesday, or maybe it was Thursday Sam Bradford Day. I can’t remember the exact day, but sometime this week we had Sam Bradford Day. I think Sam staying is wonderful news. As an OU fan, I predict next year we will beat TX, but still lose the National Championship. I’m kidding, sort of, but I am happy Sam is staying. So random fact about Sam…I know his mom, and I’ve known her for most of my life.
Yesterday was a huge day. Do you realize that yesterday was: Women in Blue Jeans Day (way bummed day I missed that holiday), Appreciate a Dragon Day (umm what?), and Nothing Day? I don’t know what Nothing Day is but it sounds like a holiday we need to start practicing every year.
I read online that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner recently had their baby. This week they released the new bundle of joy’s name- Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck. What the heck! What kind of name is Seraphina? I don’t even know how to pronounce Seraphina. Spell check doesn’t even recognize this word; of course spell check doesn’t recognize my name either, so I don’t know if that’s saying much. Anyway, I’m sad that Ben and Jennifer have fallen into the -I’m a celebrity so I’m going to name my child a stupid name- category. Maybe they are going to call her Rose, or Elizabeth. I think both names are super cute, but they didn’t really ask my opinion so I guess I should keep my trap shut. But congratulations to the proud parents, because I know they read my blog.
Well that’s all the Friday Facts I have for you. Like I said at the beginning, they were all over the place. Hopefully you kept up. If not, feel free to reread everything again.
