Be more careful driving today.  On the first day of fall, the sun rises and sets exactly east-to-west.  And a lot of major roadways are oriented east-to-west.  So many of us are driving directly into the sun on our commute and that can cause some serious windshield glare.
It’s a problem this time of year in general, not just today.  And it happens around the spring equinox in March too.  Here are a few things that can help . . .
 
 1.  Windex the outside AND inside of your windshield.  There’s a lot less glare when it’s clean.
 
 2.  Keep sunglasses handy.  It’s not summer anymore, but you still need them.  Polarized sunglasses work best.
 
 3.  Slow down.  The sun can still momentarily blind you, even with sunglasses on.  And keep in mind that other drivers might be struggling too.

Tim Tebow, who played quarterback for Florida while Urban Meyer was the coach of the Gators, was asked if he thinks Meyer wants one more run as a coach. 
“I know, he’s a competitor,” Tebow said on the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. “That competitive side, right, it’s a balance. I think his competitive side is probably saying, ‘Let’s see what I can do here, let’s see what I can do here.’”
His answer?
Yeah, I’m thinking Urban’s gonna be back at some point. Could it be Nebraska?

Artificial turf or grass debate is picking up steam again.
It has inspired intense debate in NFL circles since the heyday of AstroTurf. Players say that turf shortens their careers and adds to the injury risk already inherent in a contact sport. Team owners counter that synthetic surfaces cost less to maintain and offer the durability to host more money-making events.
The NFL’s ultimate goal is an ambitious one. Sooner than later, the league wants to unveil a “frankenturf” that meshes the best characteristics of natural and synthetic playing surfaces.
So we went from Astro turf to field turf and are going to frankenturf? Look for Frau Blooger to perform at a halftime show near you!
