Monday update

I watched Memphis gain a fine win over the Cincinnati Bearcats on ESPN last night. However, bracketologist Joe Lunardi was interviewed during the game. He said that for Memphis to be in the mix for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, they must win out their remaining games – Tuesday at USF and Sunday in Houston. The Houston game is most important, as it will be the Tigers’ only remaining chance in the regular season to get a Quadrant 1 win.

From the DM: Series of miscues led to Haushalter’s rapid fall from grace. I feel for Dr. H. I don’t think she and her team ever planned to do less than an exemplary job. They just got in over their heads. I have to admit I became concerned when I heard they’d be using SignUpGenius to schedule vaccine appointments for a county of almost a million. That’s the app my team uses to sign up for bartending shifts at BBQ Fest

Although I feel a certain amount of empathy for Haushalter, if she’s actively employed and paid by my tax dollars through the 15th, I think she should show up to the regularly scheduled press conferences and appearances before government bodies.

Also from the DM: Shelby County vaccination timeline: How it unfolded

Mick Wright is starting to become my favorite County Commissioner. I’m not a big fan of too many Republicans, but he has been saying a lot of things that need to be said during this pandemic.

It’s National Dadgum That’s Good Day and National Pig Day. Kinda makes you want to throw one on the smoker, doesn’t it?

The Grizzlies clawed their way back to .500 with a victory over the Houston Rockets last night. They’re 1.5 games behind 8th place Golden State in the Western Conference.

That’s the news on a not-very-newsy Monday. Back tomorrow.
