Buzzy October Birthdays, Car Show and Some Sports Talk


Buzzy family birthdays in October start off with Connie Lepper and my sister Lila Hofmeister celebrating theirs' on 1 October.  Connie is a member of my SOB (South of Buzzy) Club and another SOB member Dave Jarrell will also celebrate his big day on 1 October.

Then on October 2nd, Kim Wiley celebrates her day; Charlie Simms (above) will be 94 on the 8th;  Mark Dominiak is also on the 8th; Doug Byrne celebrates on the 9th, Robby Norris 12th, Chief Larry and Janet Whitt 15th, Joey Porter 17th, Bev Hall 18th, Pam Koon 22nd, Poogie Pulliam 24th, Connie Lynch 25th, David Norris 28thWinky the 29th, Ned Pratt and Bruce Price on the 31st.

On 11 October Buzzy would have been 95.  

And as if October isn't already packed with some fun events, there are rumors that on 13 October we will have a couple of classic cars at Buzzy's. 

Sports-wise October is also one of the best months because not only is football in full swing but also baseball starts its playoffs.  However, with both the Ravens and the Redskins on losing streaks and the Nationals playing tonight in a one-game playoff match, things are looking sorta bleak for our home teams.  (Notice I didn't even mention the Orioles nor the Terps.)  Here's hoping that Scherzer can at least get the Nationals into the next round of playoffs.

In the following video
Kenney Chesney talks  football and fall.  Guess I should say that Kenney is singing about it and that's New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton talking about it at the beginning of the video.  Makes me wonder if he didn't give a similar pep talk to his guys prior to them upsetting the Cowboys Sunday night.
