Bowling for assault rifles

Just got done approving some friends for NEXT’s MySpace page. www.myspace.com/nextonline…and I ran across some disturbing, in my book anyways, pictures. Chris Burney, I wanna say bassist, for Bowling For Soup, looks to me like he’s quite the gun connoisseur. On his personal page the hometown hero has a several pictures of himself with an…

Pats don’t cheat

Just read a blog by some guy named Nick Gholson. You might have heard of him. He accuses the Patriots of doing something everybody does. So what they got caught. So what Bill Belichick admitted to video taping the New York Jets. They win. They’re going to win. I’m glad they are running up the…

Brett Favre magic

After watching last night’s 19-13 win over the Denver Broncos, I figured I’d do a little digging on Brett Favre. The guy can play. There’s no doubt about it. But he’s fun to watch. They made an awfully big deal about him the whole game, well the ESPN staff did, like America under appreciates the…

Crunching the numbers

I did some numbers-crunching on Monday, talking with area coaches on how their teams can make the playoffs. The crazy thing is out of the area’s four main districts (5-4A, 6-3A, 9-2A and 9-A), there is a somewhat decent chance 11 of the 12 spots up for grabs are filled heading into the last week.…

Why would anybody be a proctologist?

I remember as a little boy, grown-ups were always asking: “What do you want to be when you grow up, little boy?” Never once did I say. Proctologist. Urologist. Or gynecologist. I don’t know of any little boy whose career goal is looking up people’s pookies.

Cheating Patriots have a grudge

I have been doing a Friday morning sports commentary on The Buzz for about three years. But most of you have probably never heard it. Radio, like these blogs, gives me a freedom of expression that a family newspaper just can’t. So I am sharing with you here what I had to say on radio…

Kenna

All I have to say is check out the new Kenna album “Make Sure they see my Face.” The Kid is talented. Heck, he even has a chapter in a book devoted to his first album. Malcolm Gladwell’s “Blink” if you’re interested. Take a spin for yourself. Let me know what you think. His new…

Do eat the Horsey Sauce

After much consideration I’m forcing myself to admit, after a few more days of throwing up and other unmentionables, that Arby’s Horsey Sauce didn’t get me sick. Something else did. I don’t know what, but something did. And I won’t rest until I find the answer….hahaha.

Commenting on no comments and my Week 8 predictions

Before I look at Week 8′s matchups, I have to inform my diehard readers (all two of you) about this. So I’ve been doing this blog since football season started, and I have received no comments. I figured I must have made someone mad by picking against their team, right? But then someone brought to…

Here’s what we learned this weekend

We learned a few things form this past weekend of high school football. And while I was out of town (in Dallas for one of my best friend’s wedding), I kept up with the Friday night happenings enough to know how things played out. Here is what we found out:

Here’s what we learned this weekend

We learned a few things form this past weekend of high school football. And while I was out of town (in Dallas for one of my best friend’s wedding), I kept up with the Friday night happenings enough to know how things played out. Here is what we found out:

Jeffress quickly makes headlines in Dallas

It didn’t take long for our old buddy, Robert Jeffress, to make headlines in Dallas. Give this guy credit, he knows how to get folks riled up. And sometimes — the headlines he makes — don’t really say what he said. That just throws gasoline on the fire. For instance, the headline on the Dallas…

Don’t eat the Horsey Sauce

Just want to let everyone know that the Arby’s Horsey Sauce kicked my butt this weekend, literally. I spent more time in the bathroom Saturday and Sunday than I want to remember. I’ve never had food poisoning before, but I’m guessing what I experienced Saturday and Sunday was exactly that. It all started mid Saturday…

Nas’ “N” word.

Nasir Jones, one of the greatest rappers of all time is throwing gasoline on the fire. He’s new album switched focus rather quickly when he went from the title “Nigga” to “Nigger.” He wanted to prove a point. He says he wanted to give less meaning to it. Here’s a quote I found on Rolling…

Goodbye to three stars

We said goodbye to three stars this week. Joey Bishop, the last of the Rat Pack, died at age 89. Debroah Kerr, remembered mostly for her kissing scene with Burt Lancaster in “From Here to Eternity,” is gone at age 86. Teresa Brewer, one of the most famous female singers of the 1950′s, died at…

Hot QBs

Tony Romo could use a little makeup. Just picture the post game interview. Romo, all sweaty, takes off his helmet to great the worthless sideline reporters and Bam!, he’s got some mascara on. Maybe a little lip gloss. This was the topic of discussion by a couple of reporters at the paper. I voted for…
