Putting Up with the Holidays

The Xmas decorations went up last Sunday. They’re kept in a series of boxes, more like oversized Tupperware containers, in an unfinished room in the basement. We call it the Dirt Room because of the dirt. It’s some place you’d never go into until less you were intent on retrieving something. I pulled out the … Continue reading

The Five Justins

I got a nice purple hat. That’s about all I can say regarding Utah’s 121–88 loss to Indiana. It was a drubbing. They beat us like rented mules. Skinned us alive. Took our virgins, burnt down our city and left without a scratch. I blame Justin. We don’t know his last name or where he’s … Continue reading

Creed IIa

Yep, I finally saw it. Creed II, or algebraically [Rocky 2 + Rocky 4 / Creed]. It was something else. Neither fish or fowl and certainly not much of a boxing movie. What I loved about the first Creed was the story mimicked Michael B. Jordan’s abs, lean and mean. Over the course of two … Continue reading

The World’s Worst Carpenter

There’s bone spurs between his ears. That’s the only logical explanation for Trump’s behavior. There has to be some sort of blockage prohibiting him from acting honorably and conducting himself like a shaved baboon. But there is no arthroscopic surgery to remove these spurs. They have long calcified over. The man leaching his way through … Continue reading

You Best Be Voting Tomorrow

Here’s a bitter pill to swallow. Donald Trump was just announced President-elect of the United States of America. I was dumbfounded. In fairness, I was violently drunk. Watching the election results, I successful plowed through beers, bourbon and red wine. I was a mess. Just like the Democrats. How in the world is Virginia in … Continue reading

An Open Letter to Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President: First off, I’m a really big fan. Voted for you twice. Hell, I hosted fundraisers for you at my bar. And I’d do it again. You made politics cool and reminded us involvement at the local, state and federal level is important. Moreover, you reminded us that we can be great without … Continue reading

Revisiting Point Break (1991)

Rewatched Point Break last night. Had a couple of thoughts about the 27 year old movie. Continue reading

la Ville Lumière

The smoke is already drifting through my baguette-stained hands. Tilting my beret back even further, I’ll look across the Pont Alexander bridge and casually wave at the Norte Dame or some other super-old church and sigh. It’ll be the sigh of the seasoned-traveler who’s been-there, done-that. See one millennial old building, you’ve seen them all. … Continue reading

For Las Vegas, Gun Control Now

The worst country western show I have ever seen was Jason Aldean. It was at the USANA Amphitheater a couple of summers ago. The weather was hot and muggy, the sound was too loud, and Aldean was easily 20-pounds heavier than me. I know what I look like—about 260-gallons of wet laundry squeezed into a … Continue reading

People Love Football More Than Trump

3.4 million Puerto Ricans are fighting for survival and this dotard is tweeting about kneeling at a professional football game. Talk about taking your eyes off the prize. Americans love sports—football, basketball, baseball, hell, even professional soccer—and Trump might have fired the first shot across the bow of a battleship he can’t sink. LeBron James … Continue reading
