They Blinded Themselves With Hatred?

Delfategate? Remember when steel couldn’t melt? Yeah me neither. Science is a bitch. Real science — not the sciencey stuff practiced by the media. Could it be that the New England Patriots will be vindicated by the law of Nature — and Nature’s God? I hope so — not because I love the Patriots. […]

R.I.P. — Robert Newhouse

Former Dallas Cowboys fullback (a local legend) has died at age 64. The above is his most well known play — an option pass for a touchdown to Golden Richards in Super Bowl XII. WFAA has the story:

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Robert Newhouse has died at age 64. His death was confirmed […]

Indian Takers

Why convince your opponent of your side when you can use naked government power to crush your opponent. Tyranny of the minority — it’s still tyranny. From The Washington Post:

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration, calling the football team’s name “disparaging to Native Americans.”

The […]

Friday Open Thread

The Detroit Lions meet at Bart Starr, QB of the Green Bay Packers in the so-called “Thanksgiving Day Massacre”. Lions won 26-14 (though it wasn’t near that close) — Thanksgiving Day, 1962

Audity

I will take this one opportunity to applaud a Philadelphia Eagle. Eagles offensive lineman Evan Mathis posted this photo on Instagram. And when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell tweeted about it Mathis retweeted…

@nflcommish I’m offended by the actions of Philadelphia Eagle player Evan Mathis peeing on the IRS sign in front of the IRS […]

Tell it like it is

Comedian Thierrion Kagan, laying the smack-down on Bob Costas. Oh, how the once mighty, even those of the 5-foot-nothin’ variety, have fallen in my eyes. Be sure to check out the rest of Thierrion’s column.

After Costas recapped the events in Kansas City, he haughtily scolded those who need tragedies like this to keep […]

R.I.P. — Steve Van Buren

As a Dallas Cowboys fan in good standing I dislike all things Philadelphia Eagles… two major exceptions to that are Chuck Bednarik and Steve Van Buren. As a kid in the 1970s I devoured the NFL’s Junior Library books with titles like “Greatest Games”, “NFL’s Greatest Quarterback”, etc. I learned a lot of names […]
