Monday morning notes and thoughts:

I don’t know where it falls on the list of milestones in the life of your child but I would imagine moving out of the home into their first apartment ranks somewhere in the top 20. Saturday we loaded up a U Haul and moved my son Brandon to Jersey City, where he’s sharing a 3rd floor apartment with a college friend who like him is working in New York City. Let me stress the fact that it’s a 3rd floor apartment because moving furniture and all his belongings up a narrow stairway was no picnic and later I would really feel it. Meanwhile my wife and mother-in-law did most of the cleaning and I’m sure the place will never be as clean as it was when we left.

One of the wildest high school football opening weekends with the consensus top two teams at the shore both being upset. Middletown North stunned Toms River North and Freehold shocked Middletown South while Brick Memorial, Wall, Ocean, Howell and Toms River South came up with wins that surprised some. Could be a sign of things to come this fall.

Speaking of which I guess Jets fans for at least a week will hold off on their Super Bowl plans.

92.7 WOBM and Gateway Toyota/Scion are once again teaming-up to honor
outstanding Ocean County High School seniors. The Student of the Week program returns today for a 13th year in which each Monday during the school year we salute a student selected by his/her school for their academic, athletic, extracurricular and civic achievement and contributions. At the end of the year one of our weekly honorees will receive a $1000 college scholarship.

The Mets are not going to make September memorable for all the wrong reasons again…are they? Fasten your seat belts because the final two weeks might be a wild ride.
