I just wanted to take a quick moment to be glad that Tuesday set a new high for readers in a day, and yesterday was definitely higher than usual. So to all the new folks, welcome, I'm glad to have you. Hope you find it as enjoyable to read and I do to write, and don't be a stranger with the comments (as most have clearly been). Anyway, on to today's post.
For those of you who haven't heard of Wordle, let me just say it is one of the greatest things I've ever found, and I think I've finally got enough content to use it on this blog. Here's the current cloud.
There are a few words in there I would think it would filter out, like it does for words like "a" and "the." But, it seems clear that I abuse "just" and "good." I'm going to make it a bit of a personal goal not to use those two words for a whole week. "Pretty" as a modifier might get thrown in there as well, though "pretty" as an adjective (ie "a pretty play" as opposed to "pretty good") will be acceptable. Other than that, the big words are about what you would expect. I did think it was funny 3-2 made an appearance. I'm also not sure just how far back Wordle takes this blog, as I note Dexter made an appearance, and I'm pretty sure I only used that in one post, maybe two.
Now, I've known about this tool for a little while, and I'll admit, it kind of fascinates me. I wrote a novelization of Earthbound a little while back. That was one of the first things I ran through Wordle. Here was the result.
I'll bet you can guess who the main characters are. I also used "just" too much there, too. To bring this back to a sports related topic, here's a Wordle that listed each NBA team's minutes-played leaders. Here's the Pacers, which I think would be a My-T-Fine poster). Maybe a throw a logo on there for good measure, but I don't think it's necessary.
As far as actual sports go, I didn't get to watch a lot because all the severe storms we had knocked out my satellite. I did get to see the end of the Mavs-Thunder and fell asleep before the Reds-Phils marathon ended. And apparently I missed a Dane Sardinha (who I've had dinner with) sighting. Apparently the TV crew was mostly asleep by the the time he got in the game, too.
