I had a very pleasant birthday watching the Florida-Florida State basketball game at a new sports bar in town with Amy and Joseph. Thankfully they built this place in two separate sections: a smoking and non-smoking. You can actually go in watch the game, eat a nice meal and not smell like you just did a stint as Santa Claus, climbing in and out of chimneys all night. Florida won by 21 points!
The big event in the bar was not the Florida-Florida State nor my birthday, but the viewing of the Texas Tech basketball game versus William and Mary. The manager told me that 400 people wanted to watch that game, but no one seemed all that interested in it from my vantage point. Texas Tech crushed William and Mary if you are interested.
