Red River Ruminations

Yesterday I took a trip up to Choctaw Casino with Brian and his Grandmother. I was lucky and came home with more money than I went with. Choctaw has a new casino scheduled to open in February. I am looking forward to seeing it.

Winter weather is expected in the area today. Maybe more snow?

You have until January 1st to see the Forney Light Show.

I am going to review my 2009 resolutions on Thursday and take a look back at the year. Like everyone else I will be making resolutions and goals for 2010 on Friday.

Saw Avatar Saturday night. It's a great movie, that lived up to the hype. I want to go back and see it in 3-D. Like Christina, I also saw some previews of movies that I want to see. My list includes Robin Hood, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and Clash of the Titans.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite photo over to the right.

This is the Red River as we were crossing back into Texas.


My fantasy football season ended Sunday. I came in second place. Not bad, a month ago I was sitting in 9th place and not even in the playoffs.

Regular readers know I do not really care for the Cowboys, but I do like the UT Longhorns. Can someone please ask Roy Williams to please stop giving the hook'em horns sign after he scores? Now that Nick Folk is gone, Roy Williams is the biggest waste of space on the Cowboys roster.

If the Cowboys end up meeting the Vikings somewhere down the road in the playoffs I will be rooting for the Cowboys. No way I would ever root for Favre, no matter how great people say he is. Last year Favre had the Jets 8-3, they finished the season going 1-4. The Vikings started 10-1 this year, they are 1-3 in their last 4.

I was 10-6 on my NFL picks for the week. With one week to go, I am 156-84.

Funnies tweet I saw during last night's MNF game:
"So now that Minnesota lost, is Jon Gruden going to run to the Vikings locker room and give Favre a hug?"

followed closely by this one:

"I'm not sure how he did it, but Gruden just made that Jay Cutler interception into a compliment all about Favre."

Well, if it's a choice between the Cowboys and anybody, I'll chose anybody. (Sorry!). However, I agree about Favre and the adoration surrounding him. Reared in Green Bay, I am grateful for what he did for the team over the years, but he is becoming his own icon, and I'm sick of it. My family (Viking fans) and I are not in agreement, but, that's football. Incidentally, you photo is so peaceful!!
