Kliff Kingsbury got hired as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals after being just recently let go by Texas Tech. Pretty interesting move, and crazy that it happened so fast. Doesn’t seem too often that you lose your job at the college level and then almost immediately get a promotion. But hey, more power to the guy. If Kliff Kingsbury can swing it, why can’t the rest of us? Maybe we can. I encourage anyone to try.
In other news, it’s Elvis Presley’s 84th birthday today. Apparently every year there is an annual Elvis Birthday Proclamation at Graceland in Memphis. We had a blue Christmas (or several, in fact) without him. Celebrating his birthday is a great way to start the new year.
It’s also David Bowie’s birthday. He would have been 71, but died two years ago Thursday. Crazy how two of the most iconic artists were born on the same day. Anyway, his widow paid tribute to him with an Instagram post that read: “My memory loves you. It asks about you all the time.” Rest in peace, Mr. Bowie, while the rest of us freak out in a moonage daydream just to imagine what you’re doing now in the world beyond.
