NFL Alumni vote Stafford QB of the Year (?)

Posted 02-26-2012 at 12:44 PM by SloMotion

..... now that I have your attention, hehehe ..... this isn't an attempt to flame the board or dis Drew Brees, I just felt like blogging about the NFL Alumni Awards in general and needed an eye-catching, flashy title to get my creative juices flowing and a shameless attempt to drive traffic to my blog ...

The NFL Alumni Awards, why haven't I really noticed them before? Maybe because they're held during SuperBowl week and there's too much else going on? Maybe because you don't often...

You say 'Mardi Gras', I say 'Paczki'

The tuesday before Ash Wednesday, Fat Tuesday ... Mardi Gras ... a Christian holiday and popular cultural phenomenon dating back thousands of years to pagan spring and fertility rites ... being from the north, a holiday I probably would never have paid much attention to if it wasn't for a simple, fruit-filled donut. The tuesday before Ash Wednesday ... Paczki Day.

It occurrs to me while standing in line at zero-dark-thirty, waiting to get a dozen (or so) of the sugary treats that...

Ok, it's the Friday before the big game ... snack list filled out? check ... beverage list? check ... sides? check ... main entree? not checked, probably gonna' be a last minute, game day decision. Always have a hard time with this one, do you go with ribs, pizza, wings, subs or just all of 'em? Gotta' get the squares board up and see what oddball wagers are out there this year ...

So, I've talked around, did some research, got a feel from the people and the overwhelming, underlying...

A Tragic Day in American History

Posted 01-28-2012 at 02:06 PM by saintfan

It happened 26 years ago on this day. It was January 28th, 1986, and I was in the 11th grade. To many, Shuttle launches were no longer a big deal because, if memory serves, there had been more than 20 that preceded this one, but they still held my imagination. In fact I never lost that feeling - right up and until the program was retired.

Soon after the explosion word made its way around school. I and some others had access to insight other kids didn't. I couldn't wait to get...

SuperBowl XLVI; An obligatory blog

Updated 01-26-2012 at 09:17 AM by SloMotion (add 'mr green')

Well, so this is what it comes down to this season, Patriots/Giants. Back to the future, the rematch, Tom Brady's revenge, Eli beating Peyton's bully in Peyton's backyard ... Boston vs New York ... the storylines are endless. Can't get that excited, maybe it's the ProBowl week blues, maybe it's because my team isn't in it, maybe it's because the parties overshadow the game at times, or the commercials, maybe it's that vitamin D deficiency thing they talk about in the winter, IDK. But, it's the...
