What to do:
According to my iphone, which has yet to let me down, it’s going to be 104 degrees outside my house tomorrow. This is the kind of heat that meteorologists describe as “dangerous”. So while we usually encourage outdoor activities on the weekend, this weekend we’re taking the opposite stance: only go outside if your house is on fire. This advice should cover the majority of the country, except of course our fancy readers in California who will most likely enjoy another 70 degree day with bright sunshine. You guys should probably do something outside.
What to Watch:
I have some bad news – there’s absolutely nothing on. The NBA Playoffs are over, the EURO 2012 Trophy is on a shelf somewhere in Spain, and baseball is well, a little slow. Perhaps the wisest viewing decision you can make when the sports seasons betray you is to go pick up season 1 of Friday Night Lights. I’m sure you’ve heard of it by now. It’s terrific, and almost like watching real sports.
Also, if you prefer to peacefully fall asleep while Jim Nantz quietly whispers in your ear, the PGA Tour is at the Greenbriar this week.
What to Drink:
Like I mentioned previously, Al Gore is bringing the heat tomorrow. So instead of some fancy recipe that involves alcohol and measuring cups, I have a different, more prudent suggestion. Crystal Light. It’s the perfect drink when the temperature is over 100 degrees. That may even be the tag line. It’s sort of like water, only with brighter colors and flavors that can bring a man to his knees. It is sure to keep you hydrated and in style on such hot weekend. Please enjoy responsibly.
