College football and the coinciding succession of holidays starting with Labor Day and ramping up to Christmas serve as the comfortable distraction I wait all year for.

It's also very convenient that both CFB and the Holidays end at pretty much the same time, because then I can take advantage of using my brain's unoccupied state to focus on being productive for the next 8 months.

Starting in January I restructure my focus into:

1) working about 10 more hours per week,

2) reviving my fitness routine, 

3) devoting more time to various writing and editing projects that I'm continually collaborating on, 

4) my reading consumption triples, usually up to 3 books/novels per month Bs the 3 books I might read during all of CFB season, 

5) and finally I get my affairs in order, i.e. going to dentist/doctor, addressing overdue car repairs, and attending church and calling relatives with more regularity.

Wow - in listing all that out it really shows how much I let take a backseat during CFB season.

It's going to be a busy winter/spring on the home building front.   While the framing continues, all of the micro decisions will begin to accumulate.  Exciting and exhausting at the same time.

One thing I'm excited about is heading up to Milwaukee to pick out the reclaimed cream city brick we're going to use for an accent wall inside the house.    There are few places left that do this kind of reclaim, and they basically have palettes that come and go in the brickyard from buildings within the state, and the cool thing about it is they are all different, given the age, where the building was, exposure to elements, etc.   Some of it is 150 years old, some less than 100, some bright creamy white/yellow, some darker.

Wow, that's cool.  I didn't realize you had moved into that line of work DF.  
Now I'm going to have to go listen to City of New Orleans or End of the Line or Wabash Cannonball or ...
Listen to this one, Fred.

I've been to Vaughan, Mississippi, site of Casey's fatal crash.

There have been many, maybe hundreds, of versions of "Casey Jones," but they all seem to have him driving a "6-8-Wheeler," which is no steam locomotive that there ever was.  His locomotive was a 4-6-0 "Ten-Wheeler."  And the Johnny Cash version, like every other version, is not historically accurate.

Or there's this one, for our Texas friends.

i'm sure my years worth is more like y'all week's worth, but still.

If Froggy is moving to Phoenix, then who is Fro supposed to zip around the South Rim with on his tandem bike?

Now that JT Barrett is all done, I wanted to revisit his statistical claim.  Despite OSU fans wanting his head each season and being uber-critical of him, if you look at his numbers:
he was basically Antwaan Randle El as a rusher + Chuck Long as a passer + throw in Jeff George's career TDs to boot.

In this age of 11-1 not being enough and Heisman-type talents having a bad quarter from time to time, the way this young man was treated was disgraceful.  

More TD and fewer INT than Brees.  Ran for more yards than Keith Byars.  Same number of rushing TD as Ezekiel Ellitott and Saquan Barkley.  

I have no special interest in the guy, just an objective observer.  His production and OSU's success with him at QB should make him an icon, not a guy whose support went up and down like a roller coaster.

I moved to Phx over the summer, too.  And I've only been to the North Rim....

They're fun if they're optional.....not as much fun if they're your only source of heat.
