Eats & Bounds: Texas Tech v. BYE

Take a knee, everyone. We have a Saturday off for the first time since August.

It’s the bye week, so I’ve prepared your to-do list to catch up on everything you’ve missed since the season started.

1. Hug your family. They have missed you.
2. Feed your pets. Those missing socks weren’t lost to the dryer, Your Forgetfulness.
3. Prepare your yard for the winter by pouring Round-Up all over it.
4. Change the oil in your turkey fryer.
5. Open all of your outdoor faucets to prevent them from freezing (pro tip: lefty loosey).
6. Put the rest of that venison you’ve had in the freezer since your buddy dropped it of in ’09 on the smoker and make a casserole.
7. Gather all of the acorns in your yard and burn them in your fireplace for warmth.
8. Use the leftover helium from your kid’s birthday party to properly inflate your tires.
9. Clean out the gutters with that Super Soaker you’ve kept in the back of your closet since 1993.
10. Dust.

RECOMMENDATION OF THE WEEK

Bond films are some of my personal favorites: they take you to an exotic locale, throw in a full dose of action, then top it off with an iconic soundtrack. Spectre provides all that and more. Daniel Craig has just about usurped Sir Sean for me, which I never thought I would say. In my mind, Goldfinger and Casino Royale are the two best movies in the franchise. Anyway, this might be a good time to go see Spectre. You can sneak past the Hunger Games crowd and right into the seat of your choice.
