The Envelope Please…

The award for luckiest dumbass of the millennium has to go to the knucklehead who “fell” from the Carnival Cruise Line ship into the Gulf of Mexico. He spent fifteen hours in the warm, shark infested waters before being found and rescued. The motive is still under question, as a spokesperson for the cruise linesContinue reading “The Envelope Please…”

Brilliant

A reporter was robbed on live television in Qatar, where the 2022 World Cup is being played. In a most refreshing story, the victim of the crime was asked what punishment should be meted out to her assailant. Wishful thinking. Although the six consecutive life sentences that Darrell Brooks received sent a message, loud andContinue reading “Brilliant”

Don’t Give Up

Don’t ever give up. I still have a handwritten Thank You card signed by Jim Valvano after I donated to his fund. It is hard not to like this coach who achieved such heights only to be stricken down by cancer. He cost me a chance to win a $5000.00 NCAA Basketball pool. For onceContinue reading “Don’t Give Up”

Give Me More

I absolutely cannot get enough of the videos of doggies and their excitement when they see their owners return home. Have you noticed how the whole parkour thing is pretty much over? By the time I found out what parkour was, it was gone. Give me more shots of people getting knocked down by bigContinue reading “Give Me More”

Records

We are obsessed with breaking or setting new records in just about everything. Sports is the obvious choice for records, but we are starting to see the record for stupidest politician being taken from Andrew Johnson, impeached 19th century president. Trump gets the record, and I can’t imagine the American people ever again putting anContinue reading “Records”

Give Me More

I cannot get enough videos of dogs riding skateboards and kicking their legs to keep it going. I could watch those all day. How about stories of getting payback to someone who really deserves it? Revenge, especially for the little guy or girl,  against great odds, is the best. And the more despicable the deservingContinue reading “Give Me More”

Mourning

Obviously, I did not post a blog to mark the season-opening loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. It wasn’t the romp everyone expected, but it was starting to look like if the game were just a bit longer, the score would have been more lopsided. My boys were wearing down against the huge linemen ofContinue reading “Mourning”

A Great Day

What is your barometer for a good day? Temperature? That’s an easy one. I have great days that saw me literally climbing walls while sitting in a chair (thank you John Prine). There was five feet of snow on the ground, and it was ten below. But I had a great day. Where do weContinue reading “A Great Day”

Enough Already

I am sure you already know what I am going to say next… I say enough to these stories that people post on Facebook that show a cat, dumped by the side of the road by some asshole who has forfeited their eternal soul, but are too fucking stupid to even realize it. But theContinue reading “Enough Already”
