Lions won by one point. 27-26. I thought they played well. It was just a preseason game, but nice to have football back. I didn’t see last weeks’ game. I know they lost last week, but I hear they played very well.
Just switched over to Bally. Looks like Tigers won by one run. 4-3.
Tigers are playing on another channel and I thought I would switch from game to game, watch some here and some there. But I can’t reach the remote control, so I’m just watching the Lions. The game is tied. 3rd Quarter just started.
Baez played real hard tonight, I thought. Did you see how he dirtied up his uniform? Though he didn’t make it in himself, he played a big part in getting in the second run for the Tigers. The Tigers still lost. The game finished up with 2-3.
They’re 8-17 for the season, so far. It’s looking like another losing season. But I can live with it. I’m just happy to have baseball. Though none of the Detroit teams have been showing much promise, they are and will always be my favorite teams. I will always love the Detroit Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings.
Matthew Stafford is going to the Super Bowl!!!
It was a good weekend of football. All four games were quite thrilling, and close. All of them had ties broken in the end. The victors were the Bengals, 49ers. Rams and Chiefs.
I’ve been getting in writing almost every day, but not as much as I aim for. Which is fine, but I have a lot of stories and novels I want to write, so I aim for very big numbers.
You know how I said I like to get ten pages every day, five into a novel and five into a story. The truth is, I try not to settle for less than ten pages, but I aim for way more than that.
I’m a little self-conscious about revealing exactly what number of pages I aim for. In the past, when I mentioned such goals, people would discourage me. But I know it’s possible to hit these marks. Jay Lake, Mike Resnick, Jonathan Maberry are a few writers who come to mind when I think of massive production.
I remember a time when I wrote over 7,000 words in a day, which would be about 35 pages. So, I know I can do it, I just got to stay focused and try not to burn out.
Today, I got four pages, two each.
Some years ago, I would share my daily progress stats in the format you see at the bottom of this post. A lot of writers, pros and amateurs, were sharing their stats. I thought it was fun and inspiring. It showed me what was possible, for one thing.
Then there were other writers who complained about us sharing our progress stats. I guess our stats made them feel incompetent or pressured, or something. I started feeling self-conscious about sharing my stats. Maybe other writers did too, because they don’t share theirs anymore either.
I wonder if I should’ve just kept doing my thing and told the snobs to go to hell.

Matthew Stafford’s Rams just put Tom Brady & the Buccaneers out of the playoffs.
It was nerve-wracking in the second half as the Bucs got closer and eventually brought the game to a 27-27 tie.
With just seconds left on the clock, the Rams drove down field and made it into fieldgoal range, where the kicker was successful.
Rams 30- Buccaneers 27.
