Blog War! Blog War!

I found a blog that speaks to me. It says things like, “Make fun of me. Go to war with me.”  The URL is www.cynthialdragish.blogspot.com  (Check it out.  Some of you might just like it).  Coincidentally, the author of this blog (Yes, she’s a girl. I told you) is also from the Philadelphia area. I [...]

No Way Out

Does anybody remember a little film from 1987 called No Way Out? It starred Kevin Costner, Gene Hackman and a pre “cat-shit nuts” Sean Young.  For those of you who don’t know it, Sean Young is accidentally killed by Secretary of Defense David Brice, played by Hackman.  She was having an affair with him as [...]

Kenya Find Your Birth Certificate, Barack?

Here is a column from a local paper here on Philadelphia, The Bulletin.  I will reserve my comments til the end because I want everyone to read it with no preconceptions (except for those produced by my incredibly clever title for this post).  Thanks Jeff, for showing me this. 10/27/2008 My Mother’s Birth Certificate – And [...]

Update

NFL 2008 – Week 8

Here are the picks no one is waiting for anymore, but I’ll be honest it makes me feel good just to post something. Buccaneers over Dallas.  I figure if the Rams’ D can shut down the Cowboys, Tampa should shut them out.  Look for either TO or Roy Williams to leave the game early. Redskins [...]

Purpose Driven Life

Wouldn’t it suck to find out that your whole purpose here on Earth was to become friends with some asshole you met at a frat party in 1991, so that he could marry another acquaintence of yours like 8 years later only to have two kids and get divorced 4 years after that, and the [...]

Original Sin

Here’s a question I’ve never heard a reasonable answer to, at least from anyone who believes in the Bible’s literal story of creation: So who slept with Eve, her son Cain or her son Abel? Somebody had to, right? I mean we’re all here now, somebody had to have slept with her. And that certainly [...]

More This & That

I saw something today I haven’t seen in like forever here in the Philadelphia suburbs.  I was at my son’s soccer game and I saw an Asian child walking across the field with Asian parents.  When was the last time you’ve seen anything like that?  My sister wanted to go to China to adopt a [...]

I’m Back

Whew! Sorry about the long time between updates, I have been sick with whatever seems to be going around. It’s been horrible, I felt like my head was going to explode, but I’m not really one to complain. Anyway, I am 10-3 so far on this week’s football picks, but am out of the running [...]

NFL 2008 – Week 6

Well it was nice to pick above .500 again last week, barely.  At 45-29 for the season it’s time to change the way I look at these games.  I expect a big week this week. Eagles over 49ers.  Philly’s defense comes through in this one.  Thank God. Falcons over Bears.  I just have more confidence [...]

Tonight’s The Night

I’m going to give up my special place. Just kidding. My Phillies host the Dodgers of Los Angeles tonite in the NLCS. I have been looking forward to this since 1993 when my favorite conglomeration of characters came so close to bringing Philly a World Series Title. And in a “Thank God for the DVR, [...]

This & That

I haven’t listened to Rush Limbaugh lately so I’m not really sure what I thought of the first Presidential debate or the Vice Presidential debate or how I think the campaigns are going so far.  Until I do, here are a few short items that really won’t fill a blog all their own: I am [...]
