It’s the freaking WNBA.

The player should be thrilled that 1.2 million horny guys saw the video.

Average attendance for a WNBA game is under 6,800 people.

How does a “professional” sports league stay in business with that low of attendance?

 

 

 

Open Water Grill: Avon, NC

Open Water Grill

Open Water Grill was literally a stone’s throw from the condo.  Now, the original website I found for OWG did not have a menu on it and when I googled around, I found a Yellow Pages site that had the menu.  My daughter was excited that  there was BBQ brisket on the menu. (Our last vacation last year was to the Wisconsin Dells and we had dinner at Paul Bunyan’s and we had the BBQ brisket and she was quite taken with it.)  Well, turns out that menu was from 2015 and there was NO BRISKET !!!!

My daughter ended up getting chicken tenders and hush puppies.  They were really good she said.  I got the fish ‘n chips.  They are made with the catch of the day and I’m not sure what it was, but it was great.  The crust was kind of a combination of breading and batter.  When cut with a fork, it didn’t all crumble and fall off.  Came with an unusual spicy kale slaw that was good.

This was an expensive dinner.  With tip it was about $70.  That’s how the food bill adds up quickly !

Yes, I know, I am just one guy, but I am just one guy that:

Does not increase your ratings

Watch commercials paid for by your advertisers

Goes out of his way to avoid purchasing products from businesses associated with the NFL

 

 

Yep, just one guy.

BoJangle’s Famous Chicken & Biscuits

We took another mighty fine family vacation this year and as we did last year, we went to the Outer Banks.

And as we did last year, we stayed over night at Beckley, West Virginia rather than driving straight through as we did the first time going to the Banks. (Will never do that again !!)

It was a pretty good drive.  9 hours and 21 minutes with just a couple of quick stops at the Speedway gas stations in Greenfield, IN and Chillicohte, OH for gas, snacks and bathroom breaks.  The weather was fine and there were no traffic issues of note.  I have a new car, as my last one was totaled in an accident and one of the really neat features is that I can plug my phone into it and use Giggle Maps with GPS !!!  I used to print up maps and mark out any major intersections or turns and the such, but this is a real game changer.  I think the best part is it I can see traffic issues on my route and plan accordingly.  That came in very nicely on the drive home.

On the the trip home the previous year we stopped at a “Bojangle’s” restaurant.  The family still says that it was the best chicken at any fast food place we have ever had !!  So on this trip, I made sure to map out all of the Bojangle’s on our route and as luck would have it, there was a new one in Beckley, WV !

“Bojangle’s Famous Chicken and Biscuits”

Oh was that GREAT !!

I did have to wait a bit for my order and the pretty girl added a couple of pieces for my time.  As great as the chicken is, the biscuits are even better.  The fries are good, but because they are seasoned fries, I can’t call them great.  Now, truth be told, for dinner I just ate the fries and my biscuit, hard to believe, but I really didn’t have much of an appetite.  The good news is, I finished the chicken on the next day’s drive to the The Banks and gosh darn if that chicken is just about as good cold as it is hot.
