  • The MLKjr Holiday

    “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I’m sitting at home today because of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Although, I don’t remember my boss actually mentioning that it was a holiday for us this year. But the banks are closed, and […]

  • Giving Thanks for All of It

Okay, so its really about family getting together and for recognizing all the blessings that have been laid upon you, your life, and the lives of your family. Enjoy the day. Enjoy the […]

  • Are You Ready

    falcons vs. patriots I don’t have a dog in this race. Neither team does anything for me. I’d like to see the Patriots lose just to torment my buddy Denis. I’d like to see the Patriots win and watch Brady make history. I’d like to see the Falcons win because Matt Ryan has had a […]

  • Can't Overcome the Desync

    Welcome to a profanity laced tirade on the futility of playing Madden football with my brother. Yes, as I’m sure you all expected, the 1st and Ten second season Super Bowl was a complete flop. We tried three times. We tried three times for the first season Super Bowl. And I think we tried at […]

  • Another Super Bowl Defeat

    I played an awful game of Madden tonight, which is too bad, given that it was the Super Bowl. I threw five, FIVE, interceptions and lost the game after holding onto a two score lead for most of the second half. 45-42, Chiefs over the Lions. Third ring for my brother. No video.

  • Origins of First and Ten

    Back in the day, way back, I’m talking ESPN 2K5 days. That’s like 2004. I was working at MCI WorldCom. There were a bunch of us guys with Xboxes. We played some games. Halo, TopSpin, and football. We had LAN parties. We had Xbox Live. And we had an online league for football. We called, […]

  • And The Contenders Are

    I didn’t get to watch the Broncos Patriots game, but I did get the pleasure of listening to it on a radio station that lacked a certain amount of clarity. The Seahawks 49ers game was on my television, but wasn’t really doing it for me. But both games are over and now we know who […]

  • Closing in on the Playoffs

    My brother had some difficulty facilitating a trade before season three in our Madden 25 franchise, so I was forced to retire my character and build a new one. The newest version of myself in the game is on the Detroit Lions. My brother is running with the Kansas City Chiefs. As of week 14 […]

  • Happy Groundhog's Day 2004

    Well, according to Punxsutawney Phil, we are in for another six weeks of winter. No surprise there for me, it stays pretty cold here in Michigan through at least March. Phil’s not to good at giving us a short winter, seems he’s seen his shadow 94 out of 118 times. That means spring has only […]
