On the Jukebox… As promised, Tim Miller’s Halloween playlist.

Happy Halloween! I hope it’s safe and fun, and if you’re carving a pumpkin, save the seeds, douse them in olive oil and sprinkle some Tony Chachere’s on them and bake them for a great treat.

Not the sharpest team…

The whiplash is something…

This does not inspire confidence… Baltimore cops carried fake guns to plant on victims if a shooting went wrong, VICE reports.

Cleveland lost a Man for Others… Mr. Gabor died last night. He was a fixture at my alma mater and was a formational theology and language teacher for tens of thousands of men who came through St. Ignatius. I always got a kick out of his “Think Greek” bumper sticker on his lectern. He was also our athletic director, and was insanely good at it. Recently, we’ve seen stories about fake sports high schools and how they’re really just frauds will to do things the wrong way to get ahead.

But Dale Gabor went about things in a different way, what was called “The Gabor Way”… which was about doing things right and not cutting corners. And his success, 20+ state titles and multiple national championships at a Blue Ribbon school, speaks for itself. I’m just sad that future generations won’t get to meet him. But I’m hopeful The Gabor Way will live on. RIP.
