Week 11 BLBs

Minnesota +3 @ Chicago: The Chicago Bears have reached a hilarious level of apathy that is affecting the entire city. They have been slaughtered in back to back games and seemed to go out of their way to give up over 100 points in them.  What makes it extra great, is that it’s not just that the Bears have quit...
  “Let’s get together over the holidays.” – Me / Cousin Nick   We’re vastly approaching that special time of year.  The time when jewelry stores and car manufacturers smother us with guerilla marketing.  What kind of an asshole buys someone a Lexus for Christmas?  You know what you can do with that big, red bow, pal?  Anyway, “let’s get together over...

    “You can take that to the bank, Jack.” – My Dad, countless times.   There are few guarantees in life. The most annoying people in the world will remind you that two of them are death and taxes. Screw you. I despise the notion of both and prefer life guarantees to be far more positive like: ‘Rock and roll will never...
