The Most Important Blog Entry Ever Posted

Perhaps I oversold it, and perhaps I’m stuck in 1999, but I am here to talk about the MILF issue. As a Bachelor of Arts in English/Communications, I almost take it personally when I see words, or in this case acronyms, bastardized.  This indignation even allows me to wax philosophically about a ridiculous term like MILF.  [...]

NFL 2008 – Week 4

Well, It’s that time again. Bob’s STRAIGHT UP Office Pool Picks: Panthers over Falcons. I had a tough time with this one, and just gave the nod to the home team. Bengals over Browns.  See Panthers over Falcons. Jaguars over Texans.  I think I’ve picked the Jags every week so far, but I’m on a [...]

NFL Picks Update

I finally had a good week with my straight up picks, going 13-3 and actually winning the office pool I compete in. That puts me at 31-16 for the year so far. This coming week’s slate of games looks tough at first glance, but I’ll see what I can do. I am very disappointed however [...]

Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That

I love conspiracy theories. Let me rephrase that, I love conspiracy theories that can’t be picked apart in a second. I’m not a fan of the 9.11 inside job theories, not because that event is above scrutiny or anything. They just don’t make sense. Not like a long necked creature in a Scottish Loch, or [...]

Today’s Post

Sorry I haven’t posted anything of substance for a while, but I was out of town for the funeral of one of my favorite people in the world.  And when I returned I saw a campaign ad and thought I’m just tired of the whole election already.  I mean I don’t even care who wins [...]

NFL 2008 – Week 3

No explanations this week, just the picks.  My twins are going nuts.  A dismal 8-7 week last week, which puts me at a horrible 18-13 for the season. Falcons over Chiefs Bills over Raiders Buccaneers over Bears Vikings over Panthers Pats over Dolphins Giants over Bengals Titans over Texans Cards over Redskins Broncos over Saints [...]

2008 NFL – Week 2

Here are my office pool picks. All straight-up with NO point-spread (by the way, I was a thoroughly unimpressive 10-6 last week): Jaguars over Bills.  Jax looked pretty bad last week and Buffalo looked pretty good, but I still gotta go with the Jags in their home opener. Bears over Panthers.  Flipped a coin. Titans [...]

Obama’s Tongue’s Like A Bull In A China Shop

Put the “Lipstick on a pig” comment aside for a moment. What the hell happened to the great orator B.H.O. If G.W. Bush stumbled like that over a prepared statement, he would have been crucified. Now for the comment. I think the Obama camp just out-clevered themselves on this one. They found a way to [...]

This Is Why

Have you ever wondered why it took so long for mainstream America to get on board with seemingly important environmental issues?  Wonder why “normal” people still haven’t completely bought in to the whole global warming thing? Wonder no longer. Emotional Hippies – Crying Over Dead Trees – Watch more free videos  Haha, the first woman [...]

2008 NFL Season Kickoff

Yes, football is here!  And that means office pools, fantasy football, and legal sportsbooks in Las Vegas.  Fantasy football seems like way too much work to me, and with 4 week old twins I definitely don’t have that kind of time. Like many of you, I do take part in an office pool where you [...]

I Have A Dream

Here’s a question that seems pretty simple on the surface: Which would be a greater stride in the Civil Rights Movement:  a President Obama or a Hurricane Shamiqua? Admittedly, electing a black president would certainly be a huge step in the pursuit of racial equality, but until we have a Hurricane LaShondra, Malik, or De’Andre, it only illustrates [...]
