Like most Dol-Fans I'm sick & tired of waiting for this labor dispute to get settled and anxiously waiting for some football. Upon my return home I decided to do something a little different this year. Instead of just packing my newly acquired keepsakes away, I'm going to convert Mom's basement into my mancave version 2. She asked what I was doing as I was fussing about down there and I replied " thinking about rearranging the place". Her response with a chuckle, " do whatever you want, I don't care". I guess that's the thing about an aging parent with a home bigger than what she needs, she's just happy to have us here and bring some life around the place. It's good to be home !
That's what greets me every time I go downstairs. Go ahead, insert your comments. Because if I can live through John Cooper going 2-10-1 against Michigan and 3-8 in Bowl games, I can live through this too.
So,...it was all packed away neatly in different sizes & shapes boxes. Not any more. It's tore apart. A real mess,...a glorious mess. Mostly Dolphin stuff, but there is also a far amount Red Wings, Buckeyes, and miscellaneous hockey stuff too.
Now I just need to figure out my master plan, then put it back together. I say two week or so and she should be ready for the unveiling. More than likely I'll call some buddies from the local Dolphin fanclub and have a cook-out to get some of their feedback.
I did come across a couple signs from games gone past. Who can remember the Daunte Culpepper era or when Ricky retired so abruptly ? You didn't have to ask what I thought,...
Here's hoping the new CBA is completed soon and we can really get this party started.
