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!”

Bigger Than I Ever Knew

I am on record as saying my big brother Ed is one of my biggest heroes and I always wondered what it would be like to bear the responsibility of having a younger sibling. I had a chance to find out when I was in my late thirties. I was living in Norman, Oklahoma andContinue reading “Bigger Than I Ever Knew”

Waiting in Line

Who likes waiting in line? I don’t know why, but I always feel like I lose time waiting in line that I will never get back. Unless you are waiting in line to get into a Guns ‘n Roses concert with Sebastian Bach and Skid Row opening up for them. Then you are guaranteed thatContinue reading “Waiting in Line”

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”

Sports Wrap-up

We can’t mention the week without The Return to Old Trafford of favorite son Cristiano Ronaldo. But since he will not play until next weekend, enough about that. Except I just saw an ad that USA picked up the game for US distribution so now I am positive that number 7 will be in theContinue reading “Sports Wrap-up”

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”

Ping-Pong

Table tennis. Whatever your wont I love the game. The reason I chose it as the subject of this blog is because 1) I am stoned and 2) Forrest Gump is on in the background and it is where he started playing ping pong. Now I was no Forrest, but I was good. Damn goodContinue reading “Ping-Pong”

Did Hell Freeze Over?

I know I have been a little groggy with medications, but what did I miss? Ronaldo was benched. Messi was traded. Now I am not an expert, but you know that silly little thing won’t stop me from chiming in. In a year when trade rumors and gossip are filled with the biggest names inContinue reading “Did Hell Freeze Over?”
