The Man Who Would Be King

One of my favorite movies of all-time and an apt descriptor for King James, aka Lebron James, professional basketball star. Lebron is approaching the all-time NBA scoring record held by the much-revered Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Lebron is supposed to be here. He was anointed at age 16 and has pretty much lived up to theContinue reading “The Man Who Would Be King”

When is Enough Enough?

When free agency hit sports, I started to lose interest. It used to be your city had a professional sports team and the whole city rooted for them because it was their” team, “their” players. Players would play their entire career for the same team and this gave fans a vested interest in cheering theContinue reading “When is Enough Enough?”

I Thought I Heard it All

Keystone. Car 54 Where are you? Uvalde. The police shot and killed a double amputee. Not the athletic, mobile type running on two prosthetic limbs. No. Stumps. He was trying to run away on his stumps. They caught him by walking. He did, however, have a butcher knife he was wielding, so, according to theContinue reading “I Thought I Heard it All”

Calling it Quits

Retiring, hanging ‘em up, call it whatever you want, but it happens (or will  happen Tom Brady) to all of us. I joke about it, but to be playing at his level at his age defies logic. Of course, he does have access to the best. Of everything. Food, medical assistance, you name it. I’llContinue reading “Calling it Quits”

Did I Hear That Right?

The Memphis Police Department, embroiled in the murder of one of its citizens they took an oath to serve and protect, has decided they will simply stop racial profiling. Simple. Who knew it would be that easy? Saying they will stop racial profiling is the same as making a recipe for a cake that requiresContinue reading “Did I Hear That Right?”

Better Late?

If you call me up and don’t start speaking within the first five seconds, my ass is gonna hang up on your ass and I will block your number for all-time. Pet peeve? Probably more like a foible. Although I am actually avoiding the Old Man Syndrome where everything irritates you, and that is probablyContinue reading “Better Late?”

One More Reason..

I don’t live in Alaska—I do not want to die of a polar bear attack. Unfortunately, a mother and her one-year old baby had to pay the price for man’s encroachment on polar bears, eliminating fruitful lands and driving the bears to find food wherever they can find it. They found this particular bear andContinue reading “One More Reason..”

I Hate to Say It, but…

Did I not say it was going to be a rough go of it travelling this holiday season? I actually feel bad for being so right. All you see on the news is the pariah they are making out of Southwest Airlines for their volatile cancellation fiasco that saw 90% of ALL US flight cancellationsContinue reading “I Hate to Say It, but…”

Did I Read That Right?

Did that silly little asshole Putin threaten the United States because we are sending Patriot missile defense systems to Ukraine? He better shut the fuck up and watch his six. Ukraine is winning the war without our Patriot missile defense systems. They are enduring blackouts, genocide, and murder at the hands of a godless Russia.Continue reading “Did I Read That Right?”

Child Killing

Stop doing it. With so many people breaking their backs to have children or to adopt children, you don’t have to kill them and damn your soul to a fiery hell for all eternity in doing so. These aren’t even my own children, but I’d still take it to some sick asshole for doing itContinue reading “Child Killing”
