College football kicks off today. I’m sorry. I don’t know where these predictions come from but, yeah, this all seems legit. The big news is that the college football playoffs are expanding to 12 teams. Sometimes four doesn’t seem like enough but the current CFP (College Football Playoff) series has been in place since 2014. The 12 teams will consist of the six highest-ranked conference champions and six at-large teams, similar to other NCAA tournaments. 2026 is when the expanded format might begin, after the CFP contract expires.

I know what you’re thinking. That’s a Happy Monday post. Most any given week you would be right. This week’s Happy Monday was hard to put together. There just wasn’t enough stuff in the folder.

Popeye’s did not run out of chicken. They had set up a line of supply they thought would satisfy demand, which they considered optimistic, through the end of September. The public response to the social media war surpassed all expectations and they were not prepared to meet that kind of demand. They never ran out of chicken but lines were long, shortages were widespread, and employees were working long hours and overtime in every location. Click here to read the real full story of how the decision made at the corporate office (in Miami by the way) to shut it down. It wasn’t as much of a decision as a realization. Continue reading
It’s Happy Monday time!
In case you missed it…
While homeowners in Florida are covering windows with plywood, thousands of people were still living in tents in Haiti when Tropical Storm Isaac came through. The most recent numbers are six dead, but 30,000 have nowhere to go. Pray for all those affected in the gulf coast states, as Isaac continues to track further and further west than expected.
The American most famous for taking “one small step for man” has crossed over into eternity. Neil Armstrong was 82. His death may have been the result of complications following a recent heart surgery. Continue reading
