Wow!

It’s not every day, or often enough, for that matter, that you see or hear something and it makes you say “wow!” out loud. In researching songs to add to my playlist, I came upon a video on YouTube posted in 2103. It featured Stevie Ray Vaughn (the King of West Texas blues) and JeffContinue reading “Wow!”

Carry On

The more things change, the more they stay the same… The Golden State Warriors won another NBA title, Manchester City bought the world’s best striker in Erling Harlen, and my Manchester United are doing absolutely nothing, except watch players fleeing due to mismanaged contracts. I think losing Jesse Lingard will return to bite them inContinue reading “Carry On”

Lesson Learned?

I just wrote only a few short days ago I was getting sick about all the gun violence that is plaguing this country. We are broken. We are sick. Now, I want to issue a qualifier that I have only watched one TV channel, the one that is most closely with Democrats, so I doContinue reading “Lesson Learned?”

Balls

Now, we’ll be going over several notable examples on this subject in this blog. Now there are baseballs, all other athletic sports’ balls, and then there are the balls it takes to stand in the face of certain death and tell a certain Russian warship commander exactly what he could do to himself as aContinue reading “Balls”

Hoosiers

Not only one of the greatest sports stories ever made into film, but here come the Hoosiers of War. Ukraine. Whatever happens from this point on and I can only unfortunately think it will be terrible for the Ukrainians, they have shown that you don’t fuck around with their country. Except in the movie, theContinue reading “Hoosiers”

At Last

I got the call. The manager of a popular restaurant in Miamisburg has booked me for March 30th. He called me to ask how I want my name listed on his banner. In Arizona I played out as Markus when I did solo gigs. “Maddogg” I told him.  I will get over there in theContinue reading “At Last”

I Was Just Talking About Payouts

…and the ho-hum nature of the cost of mankind’s destruction of our planet. Just another expense to be amortized. Who sets the number for Earth’s useful life? How about those whacky Dallas Cowboys and their antics in the women’s locker room for the cheerleaders? Payout. 2.4 million. That’s not even high school stuff, hell, IContinue reading “I Was Just Talking About Payouts”

Go You Reds!

I can’t help it. The one sports team that I will follow as often as I am able is the Manchester United Football Club. Ever since I watched Georgie Best, the mercurial striker for United beat Geoff Hurst and West Ham in 1967, I have been a loyal maniac for the lads whenever and whereverContinue reading “Go You Reds!”

The Great Escape

I am sitting in a little bar on the west side of Tucson. It is called the Turquoise Turtle and my big brother and I were pounding down Cutty Sark scotch like it was water. After about three hours, we got into some sort of an argument. My bro has always maintained his physique andContinue reading “The Great Escape”

Q is for Quandary

Which is where I am on several issues. Like watching the Middle East meltdown and laughing as that rascally rascal Putin keeps on pulling Jo-Jo’s strings while China outright threatens what will amount to Global Thermonuclear War. Sound familiar? It is the game that Matthew Broderick played against the WOPR computer in War Games. ExceptContinue reading “Q is for Quandary”
