Overrated and Underrated. May 25, 2013

Overrated - Memory. With all the technology that's flying around in our lives, we really don't need to remember things anymore. How many phone numbers do you actually remember? They're all programmed in your phone. Need to answer a question? Just ask Siri (yeah, I'm an iPhone guy. The rest of you can use Google). Sure, there are some memories that you want to keep in your brain to be called up anytime you want. Things like your first kiss, Grandma's pierogi's and a friends laugh. Hope you know what I mean.

Underrated - Playoff Hockey. I don't care if your team is in the playoffs or not, playoff hockey is Awesome! It's pure intensity from the first puck dropped to the end. Unless it's a blow-out. Then you hope another game is on another channel!

Eric, I don't watch much/any NHL during regular season, but once the Caps are in the playoffs, I've got to watch.  More intensity, and impressive watching the goalies make tough stop after tough stop.

I have been to one hockey game and that was enough for me. Of course we sat too close to the action...

We're just not going to see eye to eye on this one.  I love that I have a fabulous memory and can tell you most every phone number in my phone without looking and I HATE hockey.

Good morning Eric - thank goodness memory is overrated because mine is starting to go :) Have a great day!

I completely agree with this one.  My memory is not there with phone numbers, etc.  I often use the GPS to get me where I need to go, even though I know the mean streets of Fort Wayne like the back of my hand.  Playoff hockey is exciting!!  Fun to watch.

Hi Eric -- having a good memory is still a very good thing in my opinion -- while I rely on phone and other sources for some things, it's nice to be able to use my brain(and I like that it still works and rarely needs a re-boot)

BLiz, I watch a few games during the regular season if nothing much is going on, but I'd watch every playoff game if I could.

Judi, I don't go to many sporting events in person. I'd rather have the comforts of home, including a stocked refrigerator and a clean bathroom close by.

Tammy, that's what I hope these Overrated/Underrated posts do. Just start a discussion. There's no right or wrong.

Jean, haha. Eat more fish or fish oil supplements.

Jared, it's about time you agreed with me lol. I didn't know Fort Wayne had mean streets. Anything like Livonia's?

Michael, that's kind of what I meant. We don't need to rely on the memory for the little, mundane things.
