Hometown Hero


We had two good games this past weekend, both ultimately came down to a kickers foot (BTW: first time that ever happened).  Let’s hope that “The Big Game in February” has as much drama.  Go Manning and the giant killers!


We now live in a world where Jonah Hill is an academy award nominee.


Have you heard the short list for the Indy job?  It’s down to vest-guy from Ohio State and the coach of Montreal.


15 year opinion reversal:  “Crash” is better than “Under the Table…”.


Yes you read that correctly…Montreal, Canada.


Long Duck Dong is my favorite John Hughes character, save Ferris.  (This is a lie)


The prince is back in the central.


Sorry to throw gasoline on the fire, but I went to Kicks 66 last night and got a 2-pack of Twinkies for $1.59 and a 2-pack of Swiss Cake Rolls for $0.50.  I know what you’re thinking, but the caloric content is virtually identical. 


The superbowl is most watched in KC (per capita) than any other city.


Give me a break, there is no way that Rudy’s family called him Rudy.  Talk about blatant artistic license.  And that’s coming from a domer homer.

I can’t wait for this weekend’s games, all four teams are fun to get excited for.  Who needs Sproles, Jordy, or Tebow, when we got the lovable Harbough brothers, they are so friendly.  Then there is the Patriots, I love it when the same team wins every year.  And Let’s not forget Eli, finally showing that small market teams have a chance to win too!


Rumor has it:  Levvit in as D-Coordinator.


Yes Twinkies are king, but I say good riddance to ding dings and ha-hos, little debs SCRs are where it’s at.   I’m reminded of the time when I said to My Cousin Vinny:  “Vinny, aren’t you excited about the Cowboys doing good!”  and he was like “I hate the cowboys” and I was like “but they got the Tuna” and he was like “It was one thing to cheer for the patriots or jets when they had tuna, but I can’t cheer for the rival Cowboys”  and I was like “but they got Terrance Newman!”  and he said “Terrance Newman can die”


Apple’s 1987 “Knowledge Navigator” Video.  It’s a sort of look at the distant future.  Set in 2011, your mobile device is equipped with a personal assistant that retrieves data, sets appointments, sends messages, etc., all via simple voice command.  Odd that they would predict 2011, sort of a random year.  How did they know?


Each Christopher Nolan movie is better than the previous.  “so your saying that this is the best movie you have ever made….wow, that’s messed up!”:


--Batman part 1


--Batman 2



Check out   They make a compelling argument:  “let’s get rid of him!”

Wikipedia went dark today for 24 hours to protest “net newtrality”.  Check out google, they went half-dark…woosies.

 Hurry. Feb 25

Everyone thinks of the Pats as world beaters, but let’s not forget that it has been almost a decade since they last won.  They are not unbeatable, and remember that the donx had a couple score lead on “the Bellicheck Bunch” a few weeks ago.   (Note:  Hilarious brady bunch joke reference, hahahahahaha)


Okey Pokes got 4 first place votes.  They should have gotten more.  Let’s be honest, Arkansas had the best offence in the SEC, and it would have been middle of the pack or bottom half in the big 12.  I’m not saying Bama is not the best team country, I’m just saying we have no idea whatsoever.  Why does arguably the best sport in the world have the worst post season system.  Jonah’s sunflower soccer league has a better system.


And don’t get me started on the strange overtime rules where they decide to quit playing real football and just run some scrimmage plays.  I would prefer the fundis mascot fight at the 50 yard line to decide it, although that brings new meaning to the phrase “don’t mess with Texas”.


Did you hear about the 3rd Grade teacher in Georgia who put “slaves picking cotton” and “slave beatings” in math problems.  Example:  “If the 8 slaves picked 56 pieces of cotton equally, how many pieces of cotton did each slave pick?”  or “If Fredrick receives 3 beatings per day, how many beatings does Fredrick receive every week?”   This is real, I’m not making this up.


Lowest rated BCS championship game of all time.  The orange bowl was the lowest rated BCS game of all time.  The BCS bowls were collectively down in the ratings except for the fiesta bowl which was up 40% from last year, hmmm.


As Tim “the toolman” Tebow hit an 80 yard bomb on the first play of overtime, almost 10,000 tweets per second sounded off.   Highest Tweet rate in history.


I understand  saving Andy Reid, but how did Norv Turner keep his job?  This is the same organization that I fired Marty after, I believe going 14-2.  Oh, and they let Sproles and Brees go to the saints where they only each led the NFL in yards this year.  Let’s not forget about the time they drafted Eli Manning and then Archie Manning says “Eli is not playing for you” and so they were like “pretty please” and then Archie was like “nope” and so they were like “we suck”.


As Tim “the toolman” Tebow hit an 80 yard bomb on the first play of overtime, the dude who scored the touchdown was thinking “Yes!!!  Now all we have to do is have our defense stop pittsburg from scoring a touchdown and then we win the game, yay!”

Isn’t “Unsolved Mysteries” a little redundant?  By definition a mystery is unsolved, right?  That was one of my favorite TV shows as a kid…..I feel like I just found out about Santa Claus.


Each BIG XII team has started or is about to start the most grueling 18 game regular season stretch of games since ancient Athens.  K-State probably has the 4th or 5th best starting lineup, but in a marathon run, they have the best bench in the league and the best first 10 players than anyone.  Prediction:  K-State Big 12 champs, it’s a perfect storm winning formula.  (note: we will lose the first 4 games)  Talk

to me in March.
