Getting ready...

Well, Spring is finally ere and you have found yourself looking out the window at the beautiful blue skies. With every inner strength you have launched yourself outside to enjoy the wonderful day that surrounds you with the hopes of seeing and feeling everything. This all starts to come together in a sweet and smooth harmony until you realize the one thing that everyone else will - You're still wearing the same old prescription eyeglasses that you had since high school. Do yourself a favor and discontinue any further exposure to the outside world. Do some research online and locate a great looking pair of glasses that exemplifies your facial features and your body style. If you think that buying glasses online is too expensive please walk over to a mirror and look at yourself, raise your right hand (with your palm facing you) just above your eyebrow and hit yourself on the forehead while repeating the following -
"Prescription Glasses online are not expensive."

New Rules - Are they needed or not?

The following came in from the NFL and brought to you by UPI -

NEW ORLEANS (UPI) -- NFL owners meeting in New Orleans Tuesday enacted several rule changes, including moving kickoffs from the 30- to the 35-yard line.

Players on the kicking team will only be allowed a 5-yard running start, instead of 15 yards.

However, the owners declined a recommendation by the league's competition committee to move touchbacks from the 20-yard line to the 25.

In another change, the booth official will now confirm all questionable scoring plays. Coaches will still be allowed two challenges per game, gaining a third if they are correct their first two.

The owners also acted to end confusion on penalties for dead ball fouls. The end of a half will not be extended for those infractions.

The league decreed all playing surfaces must remain grass-colored.

I can already see that the idea of giving the kicking team only five yards to run will cause a few penalties due to passing the kick-off line with it being closer than before.

I can safely assume a lot of touch-backs will be the end result based on the added five yards. The league denied the addition of five yards to the touch-back from the 20- to the 25- yard line. I can see why they kept it at the original 20. The last thing the opposing team needs is an added advantage to driving the ball to the end zone.

I will also have to agree that the field should remain green and not any other color. It was green when it all started so it should remain green from now on.

Leave me a comment on what you think about the rule changes.


Shop smart...

I would like to mention to all my readers that even though you know Spring is just around the corner remember that with warm weather comes new drivers. It's been reported in the past that most new drivers (teenagers) are out in full force around the beginning of Spring. If you have car insurance already then you have nothing to worry about - but if you are one of the few that think they can get by with out it, shame on you. Most accidents happen just a few miles from your home, so the last thing you need is to get into an accident and not have the proper coverage. Even though I live in Toledo, I know that people reading this that live elsewhere just might be shopping for cheap car insurance Tacoma isn't that far. If you live in Tacoma, WA please be advised of the Mandatory Minimum Auto Insurance Coverage that must be met. Trust me, when you are involved in an accident the police officer will not conveniently forget to ask for your driver's license, registration and car insurance card. Depending on your financial, lifestyle or family you might want to make sure you select the right coverage for yourself that will meet the needs of those with or around you. I currently have Liability Coverage Low Cost, see the vehicle that I own is an oldie but it gets me to work just fine. Now my daughter just bought herself a nice sports car so she understands that she can not just get the low liability plan and hope no one hits her because she likes the low payments. She purchased the Full-Coverage so that she is covered on all aspects. Please, find the right one for yourself and above all drive safe.
