There have been a lot more basketball games on t.v. this week than usual. #NotGonnaGoogleThis. Welcome to the Satur-deja Vu. You may or may not have seen these headlines this week:
Pepsi + Peeps = Peepsi? Peeps get more hate at Easter than candy corn does at Halloween but that’s not stopping Pepsi from introducing a Peeps flavored variety. While the cans come in three different colors, just like Peeps themselves, the flavor is the same. And from what I’ve heard tastes exactly like the marshmallow Peeps. I will have to take their word for it. Your reviews are welcome in the comments.
The memorial service for Hank Aaron was televised this week from Truist Park in Atlanta. The small numbers of family and friends allowed to attend gathered right in front of Aaron’s statue in the Monument Garden. The Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred noted that even if you took away Aaron’s 755 home runs he would still have over 3,000 hits. A FB friend pointed out this week that even without the 755 home runs he would still have more hits than Wade Boggs!
This year’s Hanukkah celebration ended last night. So about four years ago I’m watching a holiday special called Nina’s Hanukkah Adventure. The animated character that looks so much like me in the still shot above is actually Nina’s rabbi. Not only does it look like I got sucked into a cartoon the blonde hair, blued eyed lady could pass for Teresa. I cropped those those headshots and used it as my profile pic for a while.
