While I'm normally a fan of Bulletproof coffee, today's tip is much easier - 4:30 coffee is good for 4:30, not so good for 12:30 later on.

Anyone else ran into this? Placing an order on the Amtrak website, and then a hard crash. "Gateway error" and that's it. No recommendation, and the ordering's just dead. #orderingfail

Unbelievable ending to the Auburn-Alabama game. Most memorable game I've seen since the Michael Westbrook prayer about a decade ago.

How to pull a tractor:
Option 1: Walk up, grab rope and pull
Option 2: With the benefit of hindsight, notice the following:
a) without anywhere substantial to brace your feet, you're pulling entirely with your arms
b) there's a piece of wood that doesn't move (unlike mud), that feet can be braced on.
c) in general, pulling things with both feet braced is substantially easier
d) I'm at my absolute strongest deadlifting, so putting both feet against the vertical post will work best
e) Deadlifting is toughest at the beginning, so bend your legs a bit to make sure you're at your strongest point, when you need to do the work.
f) Once you get momentum going, keep going, it's much easier.
g) There's a reason people on the "Strongest Man" contest wear gloves. Ouch!.
h) Don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it
i) Sometimes there are unexpected rewards - like free kettle corn if you succeed.

Huey Lewis played at Wolf Trap last night. Great night, even with the monsoon (or whatever your call 4 inches of rain, and 40mph winds) that blew through. Played the Sports Album from start to finish - reminds me of bloggers recycling their old posts.
