"If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster." - Clint Eastwood As a youngster prowling the mean streets of Marlton, NJ, my pals and I would often get our kicks by listening to a Cheech and Chong comedy cassette while playing hoops, whiffle ball or shooting pool.  I can still recite most of the “What I Did on my Summer...
"If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story." - Orson Welles   The honeymoon is, indeed, over. The Philadelphia Eagles are bordering on a Kotite-esque collapse and the majority of the blame should be placed squarely on the coaching staff.  A team that was once poised for a first round bye or even home...

It wasn’t the blood bath I was hoping for, but the Colts trying to pull off the Annexation of Puerto Rico made it all worthwhile. Indianapolis showed a little bit of pride and finally dropped their nuts after being shoved into a locker in the previous billion meetings. My boys came away with a victory on...
  "I'm drowning in a whiskey river.  Bathing my mem'ried mind in the wetness of it's soul." - Willie Nelson, "Whiskey River"     I spent a few months in Nashville this weekend and am still a little foggy so excuse me if I blurt out drink orders at any point during this piece. Not a bad little town, that Nashville.  First impressions included,...
"It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone else." - Marilyn Monroe   As a young kid, I wasn’t the most normal cat in the neighborhood. People who know me now, see me as outgoing, engaging, even somewhat boisterous.  Yet as a little guy, I always tended to keep to myself.  Few things interested me outside of watching sports,...
