Jibber Jabber – A tad bit Jibberless

Chad T. Jones, Public Affairs Officer

A congressional staffers’ briefing and Transformation IPR may be taking up my time, but that’s not why I’m truncating this week’s dose.

Gonzaga lost to North Carolina on Monday night, which means I’ve gotta make dinner for “YDJ.”

Apparently my middle child, and winner of the 2017 Bracket Challenge, wants chicken pot pie, apple pie and something else that probably has a crust for his victory meal.

Problem is, I haven’t really baked since Home Ec in the early ’90s, so there’s a good chance the boy’s victory meal may also be his last meal, and I don’t want that mess on my hands since I love the little guy more than most.

I was also shaken a bit by the news that Tony Romo is calling it quits after a very good, but not Hall-of-Fame career as the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

I’ve been asked what I think about Romo leaving the NFL for spot in the broadcast booth — he will be part of CBS’ No. 1 broadcast team.

To be honest, I’m not sure. He certainly came up short in some big situations, and he never led Dallas even to a conference championship game.

However, he single-handedly kept the Cowboys competitive for a long time. So the least I can do is take a few moments and get my feelings in order before I fly off the handle with something I might take back in a few weeks.

Now you know what next week’s column will be about — assuming I survive the Great Chad bakeoff.

BTW, congrats to Staff Sgt. Ronnie Moore from Kimbrough for winning the annual MeadeTV/Corvias Bracket Challenge!

Rumor has it he’ll be picking up his $100 gift card, courtesy of Corvias Military Living, on Friday.
