Oh Really?

I read a headline that indicated that Officer Kimberly Potter who mistakenly killed a man when she shot Daunte Wright with her service revolver instead of a taser. I have fired both and I can tell you the weight, balance, and feel are not similar. She said, “I am sorry it happened.” That should doContinue reading “Oh Really?”

Enough Already!

As a fan of the greatest football team on the planet, I have come to expect much more than what is currently passing as football at Old Trafford. Stinko. Today’s match at Watford has me wondering once again, what the hell is going on? Georgie Best is surely turning in his grave. I’ll tell youContinue reading “Enough Already!”

One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

Back for Good

What a trip. It started out on July 18th in the west valley of Phoenix, Arizona and culminated on September 14th. We are now new citizens of a little town in southern Ohio called Miamisburg. A golf course less than a mile down the road. The slow moving Miami River (Greater or Little Miami toContinue reading “Back for Good”

Keeping Secrets

Everyone does it. Nations do it. Hell, they not only keep secrets about their enemies, they keep secrets about their own citizens. Spooky. It is another of my convoluted beliefs that if you have absolutely NO secrets, you have lived a pretty boring life. As long as membership into a seminary includes being a humanContinue reading “Keeping Secrets”

I Hate Losing

I’ve said it before. I just sat through a disgusting display by the Manchester United Football Club. I am a Red through and through, but when it takes 10 penalty shots to lose to a substandard team from Spain, we just don’t have the team we want or need to represent Old Trafford and theContinue reading “I Hate Losing”

Reverence

I speak about respect and how I feel reverence is respect to the nth degree. I felt reverence when I went to my first ever Catholic church and mass. I still get the same feelings on Sundays. I felt reverence when I got my first glance of Wrigley Field, all striped and ready for aContinue reading “Reverence”

Is NOTHING Sacred?

Mondays I play a song. Here is an Eagles song. An unruly crowd. Out of control people desecrating an iconic place. Old Trafford, the holiest of places in English football. What the fuck is the matter with you? Who do you think you are, Americans? I much prefer soccer (football) hooligans to the destructive idiotsContinue reading “Is NOTHING Sacred?”

Premier League

My beloved Manchester United is teasing me once again. 2017 was the last time the Reds won silver. Even though it was “only” the Europa League Cup and not one of the big three of a “treble.” FA Cup. I love watching the Football Association Cup because it is like the old Indiana State HighContinue reading “Premier League”
