Saturday Night’s Alright For Commenting: 7/18/2020

Take off your jacket, keep on your mask.

WMMR’s Finger Eleven Performs on the Deck of the USS New Jersey Battleship Museum and Memorial - August 24, 2007

With so much still up in the air as to what the 2020 Houston Texans season will look like, and two teams already saying they will not have fans at games (at least preseason ones), we might all have a lot more free time on Sundays this fall.

What will you do with that time? Start a new hobby like naval fluff collecting? How about competitive beetle fighting? Or maybe you’re not down with all the crazy and just want something that seems more, well, normal.

You could take up the study of US Naval surface warfare. Seriously, who doesn’t want to learn about a gun that can fire a shell the size of a Backstreet Boy, that weighed as much as Volkswagen Bug?

Or maybe you like more modern pursuits like binge watching shows on Netflix. From Daredevil, excellently written by my friend Christos Gage, to Unsolved Mysteries (sorry, “why people collect belly button lint” remains unsolved as of this writing), to Stranger Things (which, despite the title, really isn’t stranger than collecting belly button lint) to A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Maybe you have a long list of undone Honey-Dos. Are you that person that ran out the moment the Stay At Home order was put in place to stand in line at Home Depot with 5,000 of your closest friends?

Or maybe you could teach yourself how to re-do fight scenes from famous movies and make them better?

While this is just the tip of the iceberg, not having NFL games could just be the gift of time you’ve always needed to reinvent yourself...or find exciting new ways to waste time on the weekend. Your choice.

What will you do if the unthinkable happens and we have no NFL games this year? Give us your best ideas in the comments section. Or not, because it’s Saturday night and off-topic is alright.
