Historic newsflash. Bet you are thinking that this blog is going to be about Pearl Harbor.  You would be wrong.  Not, mind you, that this blogger doesn’t think that the 73rd anniversary of the attack on our country isn’t worthy of a mention. 

 It is.

However, today it is the first ever College Football Playoff that catches the spotlight.  Four teams have been chosen to compete in this history making playoffs--Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, and Ohio.  Finally, after years of fist thumping, the masses have a playoff, if a two game bracket can be called a playoff.  Four teams will have the chance to put it all on the gridiron, go toe to toe across the fifty, and juke their way into the annals of football history.  Number four seed Ohio gets the dubious honor of playing number one seed Alabama, which means in theory Ohio has a chance of being number one in the nation.  Win, lose, or draw, it will be one for the record books.  Gotta love the underdog.

Be that as it may, Miller has its own little dramas to keep life in the Piney Woods interesting.  Time to check up on the family feud.  BND El Segundo took off for Houston to oversee the new Double D leaving BND Numero Uno to snag the seat next to GND #3 every Sunday.  Yet, despite the highly visible Sunday claim staking, the two don’t seem to be making much headway in the romance department.  Maybe this blog should include some pointers on how to have a romance worthy of the attention this non-romance seems to have garnered. 

 Don’t believe Millerites are keeping a close eye on the action, just drive by TFS any morning or afternoon. It is SRO (standing room only). Feed the gossip mill, folks.  Or better yet, BND Numero Uno go to the movies, share dinner out without a crowd of other people in tow, get caught smooching goodnight on the front porch.  Something.  Not that there isn’t some drama to report.  GND#5 has been seen out with a newbie.  The newbie seems to have replaced the Risen One.  Speaking of newbies, if you have had your hearing aid turned down these past few weeks you might have missed the arrival of another celebrity who plans to dwell among us.  The ex-host of Design Redo joins the team at Junkalicious.  Make a point to give Ms. Kemper a heaping helping of Miller hospitality.

Meanwhile, this might be the season to go over the hills and through the woods to grandmother’s house.  Gas prices dropped below $3.00 for the first time in, well, a long time.  The talking heads say that gas prices could drop even further before the holiday season.  Ho. Ho. Ho.  If you’re into useless trivia, here is one for you.  Today is the 342nd day of the year.  23 more days til another New Year’s Eve Party at the Double D Roadhouse.  Nuff said.
