I asked for the Nuggets off yesterday so I could take care of some things, and naturally, I forgot I'd cleared it and took care of them earlier in the day. Our benevolent overlord, Fooch, went ahead and hid them so we didn't look silly (just me), so if you happened to catch those well ... good on you.
We're less-than a week away from seeing our San Francisco 49ers in the preseason. Is that really something that's happening? After all this waiting and all this projecting, it's still hard to believe that football is so close. Guess I need to hurry up and get DirecTV, so I can actually watch the games. I hate that we're this far in technology and lagging behind everything else is TV and phone service. Inflated rates and the inability to pick what I want to watch is so frustrating. Terrible companies stifling innovation. And there's nothing we can do about it. Onto the links.
