Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
Saturday 9: Boat Drinks (1979)
1) Jimmy Buffett is singing about his bandmates watching hockey in a sports bar. Since it's Super Bowl weekend, our first question is: In cold weather, which sport to you watch most: football, hockey, or basketball?
Well, I don't
really watch any sports. I will watch football if we are at Tom's
house (where it is akin to church) or if Walt is watching a game
downstairs (though he usually watches upstairs, where I'm not aware of
it). I consider it a group activity. I will also watch at
baseball if the Giants are doing well, but I don't actually sit and
watch a game.
I don't think I've ever watched a hockey game (sorry, Mary!)
I just saw on the news that we will hit the high 60s and possibly even low 70s. I saw the first blossoms on a tree yesterday. I always think it's too early, but in reading back over February entries in previous years, I discover that I say that every year, so I guess it's not so early after all.
3) "Boat drinks" are mixed drinks designed to enhance the enjoyment of a boat ride or time on the beach. Popular boat drinks include The Tequila Sunrise, Cuba Libre, and Mimosa. When did you last sip an alcoholic beverage? Was it a boat drink?
I can't even
remember. I almost never drink alcohol. Just lost my taste
for it. That said, if we are somewhere where there is a special
drink, like a Cuba Libre or Margarita, I'll have one. Mimosas are
OK, but I think it's really a waste of good orange juice and good

kids' band, Lawsuit,
was playing bars here, in Sacramento, or in San Francisco. The
only people we "met" were other bandsmen, their friends, or their

When you say "Pirates" my first thought is always of The Pirates of
Penzance, with which I am very familiar.
They always hurt my feet (and because they are so flat, they aren't good
for plantar fasciitis), but I wear Birkenstocks every day, even to

but found out that our car would require major upgrading to use it, so
we do not have it
