As Al, and many others, have since pointed out to me, the whole premise of my last blog post was wrong. While I normally do what I consider to be sufficient research before writing something, that time I missed the obvious.
I suppose I could have deleted the last post and pretended it never happened, but that wouldn't be right, nor could I live with it. I made a huge mistake and I'll own it. After the last rant about how nobody would be able to drink while the Lions/Chargers game was happening on Christmas day, and the consequences thereof -- it was all wrong, because the game will actually be played on Christmas eve, when no such alcohol rules will apply.
For that -- I offer no excuses, but merely humbly apologize. I messed up. Period.
If that makes me an idiot in some people's eyes -- so be it. It certainly won't be the first time, and likely not the last.
Or, on a positive note, for those that remember, perhaps you can call me Maxwell (not so) Smart.
After all, it was just one day off.
As Agent 86 would have said -- Only missed it by THAT much.
Thanks for holding my feet to the fire, Al and all, when I make such a bone-headed blunder. Believe it or not, I really do appreciate it.
