The Steelers beat another undefeated team this week, their interstate "rivals" the Philadelphia Eagles. I say "rivals" because the two teams rarely meet. Ben Roethlisberger had another great day. The Steeler defense had another great day, holding the Eagles to only 23 yards rushing and 111 yards of total offense. The Eagles average around 370 […]

The Aztek is no longer being produced. No big deal: I love mine, it runs great, and I'll have it for years. I've taken the rear seats out so many times, thrown golf, shooting, fishing, and travelling equipment and goodies in it so many times, and travelled about nearly 50,000 miles since purchasing it in […]
Calling anyone who voted for George W. Bush "fucking stupid" is a great way to come together, to compromise. The GOP could do everything in its power to unite the country, as Kerry called for, and it still wouldn't happen because Kerryites, four years from now, will still be calling everyone "fucking stupid." How mature. […]
If John Kerry had won yesterday, I was fearful of all of the "ha ha, you lost" IMs, emails, and comments I'd get. I had already prepared a response which included things like "I didn't lose: I voted for the guy I wanted to vote for, and nothing prevented me from doing so." I will […]
You know what's more annoying than seeing political advertisements on every TV channel? Being told to vote by every friggin' blog in the world. Shaddup already! I voted three weeks ago! Do you honestly think anyone is going to vote simply because they saw a "go vote!" post on a blog? Grrrr... Like Justin, I […]
Eight in a row we can't do much about. 21 in a row we can: Boston-area fans had better hold on to their Red Sox streak, because the Patriots were sent home with a crushing loss today after being defeated by my Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers lead nearly the entire game and controlled the football […]
I'm sick enough of politics at this point that there simply won't be any more political posts on my blog for quite awhile. Questions asked of me about my vote (against Kerry) will be ignored and possibly deleted given their lame-duck status post-this-post. I've talked with a few people older than me this week who […]
Some people seem to have a keen sense of reality. Some do not. First the Sherlock thing and then "Clinton pursued Osama bin Laden?" And 20+ other fallacious, silly things? Y'know, cuz Colin Powell never served his country or anything… Almost all of the questions Dan's asked have been answered and the implications rebuked so […]
"Let the president answer on higher anarchy/Strap him with an AK-47, let him go fight his own war/Let him impress daddy that way … No more blood for oil," Eminem says in the single "Mosh." Guess what? We could immediately pull out of our war against Al Quaeda, Saddam Hussein, and blood would still be […]
Eric has a good point: Except that this isn't the top -- it just feels like it. The Sox have to win the World Series to eradicate the Curse. And wouldn't it be fascinating if they did so against the Houston Astros? That would be a Texas-Massachusetts Series, just a few days before we're deciding […]
Okay, so I got the Boston bit wrong. I think the World Series will be close, but I always root for the National League, as my Pirates are a member. I always root for the AFC in the Super Bowl, too, yes.
I love how Boston is teasing its fans into thinking it can do something no other team in baseball has ever done, by coming back from 3-0 down to win a series. It's just a tease. It's such heartache. Heck, I hope they win game six, then get creamed in game seven. Boston fans are […]
In a weekend that saw the sad, sad Miami Dolphins fall to 0-6 (to the previously 0-4 Bills), the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys, 24-20 to go to 5-1 and take a solid lead in the AFC North over the 3-2 Baltimore Borings. Rookie Ben Roethlisberger completed his last 11 passes and Kimo von […]
Jeff's notes on last night's debate (I watched the Yankees/Red Sox and unpacked some more before Carey came over) include this snippet: 16th: Assault weapons ban. Why not extend? Bush: "I thought we oughta extend it. But the bill would never move because people of both parties were against it." (Obvious question: Why didn't you […]
These still don't have any bids. These are the same shoes mentioned in this article and have never been worn. They sell for $150 - you can get this pair for $100.
