Today will be very interesting at the Florida Sea Base. If you are not aware, IndyCar team owner, Dale Coyne, is a major supporter of the BSA and even displays the BSA logo on his car. Mr. Coyne, who has formed an alliance with the BSA, and some folks from the National Office will be visiting us today.
We also have two prestigious groups coming to the Florida Sea Base for training; the Society for Ortho-Bionomy and the National Marine Sanctuaries Superintendents. As I said, it should be an interesting day.
We have a slight chance (10%) of rain and a forecasted high of 73º today. The wind should be out of the east at 10 to 15 knots, just shy of requiring a small craft advisory. Capt. Rich is scheduled to take Mr. Coyne and company on a boat ride aboard BSA Centennial Eagle, our newest Newton 46′ Dive Special. It may be a little bumpy if we go on the ocean side, but not too bad.
I hope your team won yesterday. It’s interesting that the Steelers and Packers have nearly identical trim on their jerseys. Yellow is my favorite color. Both the colored and the white jerseys of each team has yellow trim. Back in the day I was a Cowboys fan (I no longer consider myself a fan of any particular team). The Cowboys enjoyed a pretty serious rivalry with the Packers back then. I think by default I’ll have to root for the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
The local news is on while I’m writing this. They just announced that Miami is the fourth “rudest” city in the US. They rank very high in this category every year. Personally, I feel sorry for the folks in Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. I have never been to any of those cities. But it is hard to image people being more rude than they are in Miami. I would nominate Miami as the rudest city in the world.
