TeeShirtSoup.com Presents: Asshole or Not An Asshole?

Wow, here we are again! Another candidate for Asshole or Not An Asshole so soon? Okay here are the facts as we know them today (and let’s be honest that’s really all we need to be comfortable judging someone): Controversy swirls around a non-publicly identified woman who gave birth to octuplets in California earlier this [...]

Tips For Hosting A GREEN Superbowl Party

Well, my hometown Eagles didn’t make it to the Superbowl this year (or last year, or the year before that), but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a GREEN Superbowl party. I’m not talking about napkins and tablecloths, Mr. Selfish. I’m talking about our planet. There are so many ways (even at a Superbowl [...]

Superbowl XLIII

Everybody seems to think this game is Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals’ offense against Troy Polamalu, James Harrison and the vaunted Steelers’ defense. This game, however, will be decided by how well Arizona’s defense matches up against Pittsburgh’s offense. The Steelers’ best opportunity will come in the first quarter. I expect AZ to [...]

Somebody Please Help Me With A Title For This One

Amy Borkowsky is looking for Mr. Right, and she’s convinced she just needs $3 million to buy a 30 second spot during Superbowl XLIII to find him. She has a website where she promotes herself, her plan, and accepts donations. With a little more than 4 days left until the big day and with five [...]

TeeShirtSoup Presents: Asshole Or Not An Asshole? You Make The Call

Joe Hart, a passenger on US Airways flight 1549 received a letter of apology from the airline as well as a check for $5000 to help with “immediate needs.” Each passenger of that flight, which thanks to the heroic actions of Captain Sully “landed” pretty much uneventfully in the Hudson River, received the same compensation.

If I Can Make It There…

I’m not a comic book guy (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but I do realize that in the world of comics, Metropolis is a major city, maybe even the capital. It’s where the best of the best go to prove themselves. You’re not a stockbroker, advertiser, news reporter, lawyer, etc. unless you’re doing [...]

Who Saw That Coming?

“That’s ridiculous. How the hell does that prepare them for the real world?” That’s what I yell at my TV or radio everytime I hear one of those stories about a youth soccer program that makes the teams keep playing until they tie. Or the one where the team that gets up seven goals automatically [...]

Soupy’s Book Club

I figure what the hell, if Oprah can do it, I can do it. I guarantee to increase book sales for the author by at least one unit. The first book I’ve chosen is Glenn Beck’s, The Christmas Sweater. It’s about a boy who is disappointed because he got a handmade sweater for Christmas. I [...]

Only Peter Finch’s performance [...]

Abe? Honestly?

I was watching TV the other night, as I do from time to time, and an absolutely stupid commercial came on for TD Bank. Regis and Kelly (and I’m actually a fan of both) are interviewing Abraham Lincoln. I should mention that it was actually just an actor playing Abe Lincoln; it’s not like they [...]

44*

There was a major flaw in my plan to avoid coverage of the most historic-al inaguration yesterday. I guess I wasn’t expecting people to still be talking about it today. Ah, the classy Obama-Nation. I guess the new President has already failed in his first task (a task assigned to him by a media that [...]

Sorry

I really wanted to post something today, but there’s just nothing going on.  I know the market is down like 330 points, but other than that it’s just another boring-meatloaf-night-Tuesday.  Oh well, maybe something historic (or ”historical” as I’ve been hearing a lot lately) will happen tomorrow.

“I Have A Dream”

Not to be confused with my other blog post with the same title Dr. King’s speech certainly doesn’t need my help, so here is the text of the speech with no further interruption from me: I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for [...]

NFL Conference Championship Games

NFC Championship: The dynamic duo of Reid and McNabb are playing in their fifth conference championship game in ten years. Not good news for a lot of Philadelphians who were hoping to see one if not both of them gone after this season. Of course we weren’t too thrilled with Mike Schmidt either. Offensively, the [...]
