Random Thoughts From Dave Morgan
Ah, it’s finally Friday. I can never figure out why during the week we’re sound asleep when the alarm goes off, but on Saturday, after going to bed pretty tired, I wake up at 5!
College basketball is over. It was nice to have two completely different teams play for the championship. It was so good, in fact, that when it starts up again later this year I will have no idea who the defending champs are! I usually don’t anyway.
I still can’t get over some of the questions from those sideline reporters. “You just won the championship…what does that mean for you? How does that make you feel? Of course, my favorite is “Coach, what do you have to do to win this game?” Why, score more points than the other guys!
Saw the tail end of the women’s championship game on Sunday and Baylor’s star player was injured and had to leave the game. She was on the bench wearing this huge brace on her left knee and was on crutches. Holly Rowe talked about the player going into the huddle with her teammates during a timeout and mentioned that the player had a brace on her knee after suffering “an apparent knee injury”. Really?
But, baseball is back, though all we get are Texas Rangers games. They are good to have on while we read or clean the house a little, or put us to sleep. It’s better than nothing, though.
I learned about prescriptions and insurance recently. I use a nasal spray occasionally for allergies and congestion and when trying to refill it, I was told by the pharmacy tech that my insurance wouldn’t pay for it, because they wanted me to use something else that cost $200. I politely declined. When I mentioned that to my ENT, she said that I was using a combination drug that insurance won’t always pay for, but if they prescribe the meds separately they will. So I just have to spray one, then the other. Cost? $13. Go figure.
Have a great weekend.
