5 THINGS: Amazing Barrier Beaches and Football

It’s a light day for a Sunday, so you can really focus on that whole football thing.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Sunday, January 20, 2013:

“Our amazing barrier beaches!” Well, the name of this event is pretty self-explanatory, huh? For more info, click here. It starts at 1 p.m. in Charlestown.

Some sort of football game is on today. The New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens at 6:30 p.m., with the winner going on to the Super Bowl.

Register for South Kingstown Little League or Softball! Want to play Little League this year? Cool, click here! Is slow pitch softball more your speed? Cool, click here! Both leagues offer early bird specials if you register in January instead of February, so don’t dawdle!

Has the time or date or details of one of your events changed? If you posted the event yourself on our site, then remember – You can always change the details if you’re logged into your Patch account. Failing that, leave a comment on the item in question! The issue is that lately, people have been e-mailing me, and depending on the time of the day, it can take me anywhere from 30 minutes or 30 hours to get to the item, unfortunately. As a result, I encourage you all to be as proactive as possible!

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Mali Armed Forces Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!

Wheeeeeeeeee! On this day in 1885, the rollercoaster was patented by L.A. Thompson.

“I am faster than 80 percent of all snakes.” Happy 47th birthday to Rainn Wilson, a.k.a. Dwight from The Office, the source of that quote. For a “best of” YouTube compilation, click here.
