I have experienced certain pleasures on Saturday mornings. I was an undergraduate at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. It was an all guys school then — good grief — and it was a six day a week school. When I was a junior I had Shakespeare at 10 on Saturday morning. What a pleasure. I would go to class and hear lectures from the great Willie Watt on Hamlet or Lear or Measure for Measure. After that, the weekend was usually a dud, but I had that.

Now, I have writing. I just finished a Sunday piece on the Warriors. I love waking up on a Saturday knowing I can write. It is a gift life gives me. If the Packers win later today, the PD will hold my Warriors piece and I will bang out something on the Niners-Packers matchup next Saturday. Lovely way to end a Saturday. Hope you enjoy your day.

    And don’t you feel cheated that Laffy wasn’t a sports powerhouse?
    I didn’t think so.

    College Shakespeare was a joy for me. It showed me that literature was three-dimensional, meaning within meaning, referencing this or that. Peeling the literal onion.

    I finally gave away my copy of Shakespeare’s complete works because my vision is fading somewhat and the print was just too small, but I may peruse Amazon to see if there are larger print versions available for my purposes.

    If the Packers win and the PD holds your Warriors piece will you still post it? A day or two later might change your intended content.
