Had a 26 pt lead. opponent had Seattle defense. Lost by 1 pt after that last fumble on the kickoff by san francisco. Thought I dodged the bullet when the defense was tackled on the 1 after the interception. Any combination of SF scoring some points or not turning over 5 times.

Stumbled upon this place on the corner of Vets/Williams, former Primetime location.
Checked out this place last night. It was pretty good. Very similar style menu and food to El Mesquite in Gretna. I asked the waiter and he said the restaurants aren't affiliated, but the owners are friends.

My dad is from Lebanon and we watched the season premiere together. When they showed the Beirut scenes, he said that's not even close to looking like Lebanon. I laughed and said who cares, it's a show, but apparently the Lebanese tourism industry isn't too pleased.
