Cousin Hugh

My Uncle Bobby got married for the 2nd time this past weekend. He is only 9 years older than me as my Mom was oldest of 4 children with Bobby being the youngest and probably a surprise late addition.

Bobby's 1st marriage lasted ~25 years but I didn't meet 1st wife until couple of years before divorce because he never told anyone in family that he was married (nor did we know his address)

Dysfunctional is a word I understand too well.

Bobby did have a son from 1st marriage who my sister and Mom met for the 1st time this weekend.

My Mom sent me a picture attached to an email:

"There are two pictures in the batch that are your cousin, Hugh. He is 29 years old. Jackie is the bride's name. I thought I had Jessica and Angela and Cyndi in one picture, but it came up blank.


Make me wonder a little about my Mom's computer savvy, but Hugh did wear a nice pair of boots to his dad's wedding.

Week 1 wrap up

My conclusions from the weekend:

1.) Georgia Tech has to get better on defense if they want winning record this year.
2.) Being able to complete a few passes would also be helpful.
3.) James Madison just did a number on Boise State making BCS Championship.
4.) NY Jets and Dallas Cowboys can cancel previously announced Super Bowl parades.
5.) AFC West and NFC West are still worst 2 divisions.
6.) Red Zone Channel still a godsend when local stations have shitty games.
7.) Week 1 had a lot of shitty games.

Most importantly Calvin Johnson caught that ball, Detroit was robbed.

I am in 4 fantasy football leagues and have Calvin in the 2 priciest ones.
Hoy made a good point, I ended up watching a shitty Redskins-Cowboys game, a less adept Jets Ravens battle and Chiefs-Chargers which main redeemable feature was watching KC rookie kick returners all as I sweated out fantasy results.

4-0 finish is nice but now I have to look for replacement QBs for one squad.
