Wallet Card Wednesday - 1

I know that I've seen "Wallet Card Wednesday" used on a couple of different blogs so I'll borrow the name for use here.

A pretty simple week to start things off for my wallet card, mostly because I forgot that I wanted to take photos of it.

Here is my wallet card with a book that I received for Christmas and just started reading. I am about a third of the way through the book so far.

Football isn't a battle

I had previously read of the Harlem Hellfighters in a graphic novel by Max Brooks after hearing him speak of it at a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. I had a nice chat with him afterwards and he autographed the graphic novel for me.

My wallet card also accompanied me to trivia last night.

No football questions for me last night

Some of you may be familiar with Buzztime Trivia, or may remember it as NTN. I have been playing for many years now, and have a regular group that I play with locally every Tuesday night.

My regular bar pops up on the leaderboard fairly often on Tuesdays, it is "Broadway" in Nepean, ON. You can't quite make it out at this resolution, but my handle is Squire. And, yes, our bar still has the old consoles and not the tablets. It is always nice to play on the tablets when I travel.

When I went to Arizona for Christmas I looked up a bar that I often see on the leaderboard (a Tilted Kilt in Scottsdale) and went and joined its regular players for the big Tuesday night game. A fun time, even with one of the guys being a big Steelers fan.


I have read online that the Browns have hired Hue Jackson as our new head coach. I really respect the job that he did as head coach of the Raiders a few years back and was puzzled when they let him go after he coached them to an 8-8 record. He has experience with chaotic situations and will hopefully help turn around the Browns.

I like the fact that the team hired a coach with previous NFL head coaching experience. Hopefully it will help cut back on some of the interesting decisions that an inexperienced coach brings. I hope that bringing in a coach like Hue Jackson will encourage Joe Thomas to stay with the team.


  1. I signed up on NTN, and I played a ton a long time ago. Not so much now -- nowhere close to where I live does it, and it's not enough to make my wife and I want to go out just to play it, y'know. It's fun though. I do like the new tablets.

  2. Please, keep Wallet Card Wednesday alive!
