Third Time is OK

Ceil always has a hard time picking out where to eat. After all day at school she had to drive from Alpharetta to southwest Cobb County for Matthew's appointment. Then Matthew had to be at Cumberland Mall at six, to go to the Hawks game. I suggested we meet at The OK Café.

After work I ran, then picked up Anna at the nearby Atlanta Bread Company in Peachtree Corners at 5:15. From there, getting to 75 & West Paces Ferry during rush hour is almost impossible. Went straight down Peachtree Industrial. 285 was jammed both ways, so I drove straight down Peachtree and turned on West Paces. Buckhead traffic was bad, but we arrived just after Ceil. Got to point out several points of interest that Anna had never seen.

I usually dread eating at the OK Café, but last night it was good. Had the BBQ pork sandwich. The fries were excellent. Ceil devoured the vegetable plate, and Anna had her usual chicken sandwich. Afterward C and A went to Perimeter Mall. I went home and watched the Hawks fall behind. The guys left the game early to meet back at Cumberland at ten, so they missed the incredible comeback. Of course I was the one who had to go get Matthew.

Interesting about the deflated footballs. Indicative not only of sports today, but also American society as a whole.

I saw a story about a football betting ring was busted up. Guys were betting hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some of the men were coaches in the games being bet on. The football games were being played by little kids!
