A guy at the T-Day dinner announced that a “jeep caravan” would leave for the desert at 9 a.m. today. A bunch of folks from our section of the Fam Camp drove off just after the appointed time, so it seemed like a low key day for the rest of us.
Unless you were watching college football.
Today we watched another one-point game when my OSU (Ohio State) beat Michigan 42-41. I could barely stand it and had to take a couple of timeouts of my own to go for a walk. One of our neighbors, Bob, was watching the game on an outside TV, so Bob and I had a football conversation every time I made a lap. He was rooting for Michigan (but was later gracious about the OSU win.) At halftime Jim and I walked over to the base rec center so we could exercise while watching on the rec room TVs. A heart monitor said my heart rate got up to 160 -- most likely because I was on a stair stepper, but it seemed like it was because of the game.
