Just a quickie here to tell you about the best and worst separated by about 100 feet.
I’m not talking about the Browns. Sadly, this past Sunday they were the worst-coached Browns team I’ve seen since 1950 when I started following them. Mike Holmgren was supposed to be the answer. It turns out he is the problem. He permitted Pat Shurmur, a rookie head coach, work double duty as his own offensive coordinator. The coach was overloaded and overwhelmed. I don’t blame Shurmur. He didn’t know any better. He was never a head coach before. Holmgren was. A couple of weeks ago Holmgren scolded the media for an unfriendly attitude. I’m afraid the football media here are the only people doing their jobs.
Getting back to the point. We saw a totally spectacular show last Thursday night at the Beck Center in Lakewood. It was Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat.” The singing and dancing was worthy of a Broadway stage.
Then we trotted across the street to the Rush Inn for a couple of beers and the least edible plate of food that was ever set before me. As Forrest Gump so famously said, “That’s all I’m going to say about that.”
And that’s all for today.
