The anger I saw from the vocal minority over the new Seminole Head logo and the new uniforms was interesting. Personally, I don’t mind the new uniforms (football is a bit too Boston College for me) but that new logo is a disappointment. Why? Yet again FSU had a golden opportunity to make something awesome and potentially more accurate to the Seminoles and yet again FSU failed.
Either way the outrage was interesting to me mostly because there are plenty of people who think FSU (or any major
corporation school) has much interest in the vocal minority. The average fan is going to buy merchandise. FSU and Nike will make money. And if it doesn’t sell after a couple of years, then they’ll change the logo again. By now, everyone should know that FSU does a lot of shoot first and ask questions later moves. They also play up guilt (you’re a bad fan if you don’t do this, this and this). How this was handled is nothing new. I hope it changes in the future. Maybe I’m getting old, but outrage about it isn’t worth my time.
No full review for BJ’s because I didn’t feel like taking pictures of the food, but it was the definition of “meh.” I rated it “I Like It” on Urbanspoon, only because I didn’t dislike it. It’s typical bar food, that’s pricier than most with an odd atmosphere of dark cozy bar / sports bar. It’s a really strange combo. The service was fantastic and it looks like they had a huge bar menu which appeals to a lot I’m sure.
Social Media Blackout Ends Sunday Night
On Sunday night / Monday morning, I’ll check in with Twitter for the first time since the start of Lent.
Here’s what I missed:
- The occasional interesting question / discussion with a bunch of Twitter friends.
- I realized that I get a lot of my first news tidbits from Twitter, so I haven’t stayed up to date on a lot during the blackout.
- Television commentary / jokes while live watching with others.
Honestly, it’s been easy to give up. It was so easy, in fact, that I decided to give up some other stuff for Lent. The blackout might become a yearly thing. I’ve truly enjoyed unplugging.
