    When we first moved from Houston to Birmingham, we were visiting my in-laws. As we were leaving, my wife mentioned that we were going by the Galleria on the way home.

    "The Galleria? Why, that's way across town!"

    "Yeah, and on a weekend at this time of day, we'll be there in maybe twenty minutes. I'm used to it taking twenty minutes just to get on the interstate a couple of days a week."

    Gronk did a little high school here as well.

    That's an insane load of talent on one side.

    My fiancee works in the energy corridor. We live about 8 miles away in Katy, via I-10. Usually takes her 30 to 45 minutes in, and out, and she leaves the house at 6 a.m. I made the mistake of attempting an errand at 8 a.m. once, and I just turned around and went home and waited until the traffic cleared at 11.

    And now you know why she gets out on the slab at 6 a.m.

    We were in Spring Branch, and I usually got on at Blaylock or Bingle, and yes, a couple of mornings a week things would be so backed up that it took twenty minutes to make it up the on ramp.

    That is one of my favorite geographical facts. Big Stone Gap is closer to Indianaoplace than it is to its own state's capital.

    830 road miles and about 12.5 hours separate Pensacola and Key West.

    I “went away” to school in the same state, but that was a five-hour drive from my home on the Space Coast. Still that was shorter than at least half the in-state residents who attend school in Tallahassee.

    But it's walking distance from Mexico.

    It appears our longest trip in Virginia is 613 miles or 10-plus hours from Greenbackville on the Eastern Shore at the Maryland border to the Cumberland Gap.

    Good idea. I think I see a couple of ballers.


    Fortunately, the interstate mile markers I usually see on my trips to Tennessee run from 451 to 369. Really hope I never have to see "1" again.

    Second-half meltdown for the Buffs in Eugene. Blow a 14-point lead. Waste a 20-0 run. Pac-12 is wide open.
