  'Life is tough.  But it's tougher if you're stupid." - John Wayne   People from Philadelphia, New York and Boston all think they are the toughest around. “Hey, pal, I’m a New Yawka.  Beat it.”  “Yeah, I’m from Phillufia.  I’ll kick yer ass.”  “Who you feckin’ kiddin?  Toss off, I’m from Bahston.” WRONG! A tougher breed does not exist than the people who...
    "I'm not aftraid of death.  I just don't want to be there when it happens."  - Woody Allen   My daughters are five and two and a half so their lives, pretty much, consist of the beach, games, crafts, movies and ice cream. They operate under what I like to call delusions of grandeur. Every morning, without fail, my 5 year...
The horrible state the NFL is currently in was inevitable. This is what they wanted when they decided to become an extended arm of the law. They told their fans to look to them to right the wrongs that our judicial system allowed. They wanted to be Batman. Some millionaire gets no jail time for vehicular manslaughter? The NFL...
Sometimes these games feel like they take years off your life. The fact this was a late afternoon game had me so jacked up, sleeping was going to be questionable move. Could you imagine if this were a Sunday night game? Forget it, I’d be awake until Wednesday watching Charlie Moore Outdoors. As much as I want to strip...
  “I once spent a year in Philadelphia.  I think it was on a Sunday.” – W.C. Fields   All eyes are on Philadelphia this weekend as the Holy See himself lays hands on the only people on the planet that would dare throw snowballs at Santa Claus.  It will make for nice memories for some Philadelphians so I thought I’d share my...
    “Image is everything.” - Andre Agassi, for Canon.   I’ve been alive for 39 years and 49 weeks. I’ve been watching football for 39 years and 48 weeks.  Never have I witnessed a seven day nightmare like last week in the NFL.  In the league’s 95 year history, it has never been worse, from a PR perspective.  The Ray Rice debacle...
Here are my thoughts on the bye week.  You wait two weeks for your team to take the field again, and pray teams that you could give two craps about, beat up on each other both in your division and in your conference.  This came to fruition for Patriots fans this weekend. While winning in New England has been plentiful on...
The new season of everyone's beloved Bottom Line Bombs starts off a week late.  I do apologize to the readers, but I was occupied at a funeral for a great person and comic, Steve O. Harvey*.  It was not all sad news, however, as all of his services were sponsored by Draft Kings.  Ironically, although he was very ill,...
Halloween is a fun holiday that gets worse with age. It comes in three phases: candy, booze, and then lameness. Halloween is meant for children, and that’s why the candy phase is the best. It is so good, that we don’t want to give up this fun, so we stretch it out into our young adulthood period and replace the candy...
