No Super Bowl Blog Today

The reason there’s no Super Bowl Blog today is that I was home sick yesterday. I do know that it quit raining in time for us to hold practice last night, which is good, but I can’t tell you anything about it since I wasn’t there. I can, however, tell you that the SciFi channel (now stupidly renamed SyFy) had an awesome “Star Trek TNG” marathon on all day yesterday, of which I watched about eight hours, followed by some “Home Improvement.”

Actually, I can tell you something about it. I wasn’t going to, but someone has already texted me this morning to ask if I’m okay, and not because he knew I was sick. He saw on the news that one of the stage pieces overturned last night during practice injuring four of our volunteers, who were taken to the hospital. I only know what I saw on the Sun-Sentinel website, which said that the injuries were not life threatening. If I can I’ll let you know more when I find out.

About supper time I had to roust myself out of my room to go find some food. I went to the organic juice bar on the boardwalk downstairs and got the mixed veggie juice (kale, collard, cucumber, dandelion, parsley, fennel, cilantro, mixed lettuces, carrot, and beet), figuring that a whole lotta green could only help me kick this cold. My next stop was the convenience store in the lobby for a pint of Ben and Jerry’s, which is also known for aiding the immune system.  😉  The clerk at the counter said, when he saw my green juice, “What the hell is that?” Instead of chastising him for cussing at the customers I patiently explained and went back to my room to crawl into bed and eat my ice cream.

    Casey, I saw a story about a super bowl stage that collapsed and caused some injuries to volunteers. If so, maybe it was a good thing that you missed work for a day or two. Did that really happen? We are praying you get better. Jimmy and Lynne

      Yep. It really happened. None of the injuries were serious, thank goodness. I’m feeling better, if sounding somewhat froggy today! Great to hear from you. Thanks!!
