Daily Dirt: Garage sales and Fall TV


We’re getting closer to fall and the return of those garage sales and our favorite TV programs

by Steve Eighinger

Daily Dirt for July 29, 2021
If you haven’t noticed, summer is rapidly leaving us in its rear-view mirror. That said, here are three items to look forward to as fall rapidly approaches. Welcome to the Daily Dirt, Vol. 21:

1. Fall traditions: One of the things I truly love about autumn is the advent of garage and yard sales. For some reason, both my wife and I love going from address to address on a Saturday morning in the fall, examining what other people no longer want. I’m usually looking for old baseball cards or Coca-Cola memorabilia, while she looks for … well, I really have no idea what she is looking at or for, because I’m usually busy trying to find those baseball cards.

2. New TV shows, return of old favorites: Traditionally, the networks unveil (most of) their new programming beginning in September. The COVID-19 debacle threw off all of the schedules in 2020, so hopefully this year is more or less a return to normalcy. The fall is also the time of the year when friendly faces from our favorite shows again begin to visit our living rooms. Programs I’m most looking forward to seeing return are “The Walking Dead,” “Yellowstone” and “Blue Bloods.” It’s the swan song for “The Walking Dead,” so the gorefests should be extraordinary. The season debut of “Yellowstone” has reportedly been pushed back to October, although Paramount has yet to tell us exactly when. And “Blue Bloods” just might be the perfect TV program, offering us just the right samplings of family interaction and gratuitous violence.

3. College football: I know, I know … if you happen to root for Illinois or Missouri this can be a trying time of the year, but if you happen to be a fan of, say … the Ohio State Buckeyes, the fall is glorious and always rewarding. This year should be even more interesting for all college football fans as the conference expansion talks we touched on yesterday begin to heighten. I think by the end of the upcoming season we will all be in some state of shock regarding what the future holds for whatever our favorite conference might be.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: The Missouri Tigers will SHOCK the college football world this season. JRG
