The Freakin' (Labor Day) Weekend (1970)


Getting a late start on the holiday (1970) weekend. Just got back in from Scranton.












I would've been interested in getting out to see the first Friday night of high-school football, as Mount Sterling, Elizabethtown and Louisville Saint Xavier seek to defend their KHSAA titles.





Caldwell County, apparently, won't be challenging for a crown ...


There are rarely movies out these days that interest me, but here's one ...


There's plenty of other good stuff happening around this Labor Day weekend that I would typically be interested in getting out for ...



But, this weekend, I'll probably stick close to home, flip through the new Sports Illustrated, and read about my Dolphins ...


Tex Maule has a feature on our new coach ...


And the new team media guide arrived this week ...


I'm not going to trust any takeaways from tonight's exhibition, however ...


Sonny Jurgensen and the rest of the Redskins are going to be distracted. Right after the game, they're going to be flying back north for a funeral ...

    1. That's a good comparison. I never understood how someone could be as obviously messed up as Garland and still kill it when they performed. Hearing about Prince at the end it sounds so similar.

    2. Thank you! The other similarity I notice is how other performers act around Judy Garland and Prince. They speak more softly, for example, and they never seem to be playing to the audience as much but instead stay fixated on Judy Garland or Prince.

  2. Here's the Joe Kapp segment of Sunday night's More Than a Game football special. The other segments were reportedly about Dick Butkus, Willie Davis and Lou Saban.

    Kapp, by the way, is not back with Minnesota, and it appears unlikely that he will be. The NFL champs apparently will roll with Gary Cuozzo at quarterback in the first year of the NFC.

  3. Still my favorite album of 1970: I think the house could use some paint/You know, your mother is such a saint ... Oh, my word, Watertown is amazing.
