Joey and Troy

No, that's not what Maria and I are going to name our twins... unless that's what she wants. What? But that pretty much sums up my evening. I watched the series premiere of "Joey." Pretty much what I expected. He's the same. I thought we'd meet more family members, but I guess they'll be brought in later. It was enjoyable enough. "Hoping things will stay the same... that doesn't work." How profound. What did you think?

Then I watched the Missouri/Troy State football game on ESPN. I had turned over there earlier and Missouri was winning 14-0. When I turned back, Troy was up 17-14. Tiny little Troy State over #17 Missouri! So I pulled for them the rest of the time, and they ended up pulling off the upset 24-14. Only their 3rd year in Division 1-A. That was pretty cool. I was really impressed by Troy's line play. They ran the ball well on offense and got decent pressure on Smith on defense.

Now, it's time for another new feature here on IYROOBTY, called Friday Flashback. Since nothing ever happens anymore, I figured I would go thru the archives and repost stories from the past. Today, we go back to last November for what has come to be known as "The Defroster Story." Enjoy:

"Got to ride in Shane's Passat for the first time. There was one funny moment when he said "Turn defroster on" and for a split-second, I thought it had these voice-activated controls, and I thought, "Oh man, this is gonna be cool." Then Melody reached over and turned on the defroster and I was like, "Oh, he's talking to Melody. That's not quite the same." ROFL I shared with the group and we all had a big laugh."

Have a great weekend! I'm still not sure if I'm gonna try and go to the game tomorrow night. I will be there if at all possible.

"If I need some other lovin', give me more than I can stand. When my smile gets old and faded, wait around I'll smile again..."


  1. the defroster story is funny...but you have to ask yourself..."would shane pay the money to have a voice recognition system in his car?" I doubt it, but you never know.

  2. Well, obviously. But it happened so fast, I wasn't thinking all that thru, I guess. lol It was just funny because he didn't say "Turn THE defroster on" or "Will you turn the defroster on", he said in a monotone voice, "Turn defroster on."

  3. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo that was funny.
