My aunt, my mom's sister, died March 1st. I have been taking care of her since my mom died as she had no children, and there was really no one to do it except me. The good news is that she was the last one, and now I don't have to take care of anyone, with the possible exception of myself.
The last three weeks were pretty intense, and by the end of it, I was exhausted, and caught pneumonia. I didn't have any reserves to fight it with, and as a result I was sick for quite a while. Doc said I could've died, but he don't know me.
Same story on the college season. She was needing more and more care at that time, so I really couldn't follow it as much as I wanted. So I really can't comment much on the draft, except in general terms.
Anyway, I am pretty much back to health, and for the first time in a long time, I can live life like a normal person. It's hard to get used to!
I was happy with the Fairley pick, he was the only one of our picks that stood out in the bowl games that I was able to see. I think it would have been nuts to pass on him, and reach for a need. It's not like we need one particular player to make the Superbowl.
But, assuming that these picks work out, I think that one more year, one more draft, a lot more hard work, and the damages left by He Who We Do Not Name will be undone. Maybe they are now, and we can make a little noise this year, just a little noise. But in general, I think we are headed in the right direction, and not that far off.
That is, of course, that there will actually be NFL football this year. I really think there will be. There is just too much money involved for the powers that be to just let it slip away.
I do wonder if a short season, or a season without training camp, or some such, could result in a lot more injuries to the players.
Well, that's about all I got right now. If the Lions get a hot start, maybe things will pick up around here. That would be nice.
