And Not One Jackass


Jan 28,’15:  Regular visitors here know I bristle at society's tendency to too often use the comparative absolute when describing anything; be it barbecue, Bond girls or sunsets.   Rather than “best” or “greatest ever” I favor the qualifiers – “that I can imagine”..... or “as anyone would need to proclaim Very Well Done”.
 
In that context, I am declaring this past weekend’s gathering of the 1969 Big 8 Champion Missouri Tigers as “as very well done as I can imagine”.   I defy you to gather up over fifty of anything.   Upon sifting thru’em over 36 hours, declare “there was not one jackass among’em”.   They did, we did and there wasn’t.

Of Course HE KNEW

Jan 22,’15:  A well-known, controversial, albeit incredibly successful Micro-Manager is “in the news”.    The issue in question seems trivial but does involve violation of a official Rule.    

When there’s nefarious mischief afoot within an organization run by a controversial Micro-Manager the public hue and cry is cacophonous in volume.   The “it” absolutely could not have happened without his fore-knowledge and full authorization; ergo “Get A Rope!”

There is one and only one circumstance in which a “Micro-Manager” is granted immunity from persa or-prose cution.   If he is YOUR Micro-Manager...... Meanwhile over in the Skadden Arp accounting office.

Like MLK, UNC "Had A Dream" re: Gene Chizik


Jan 20,’15:   This website chronicles the extremes of human foolishness.  Finding topics is hardly on par with Jason looking for The Golden Fleece or Dr Livingstone searching for the headwaters of De Nile.  Juicy choices present themselves every day.  Rarely is a choice so obvious on so many levels. 

Within 48 hours (1) a University System President making $600,000 is lame-duckerized and (2) an Assistant Football Coach, with “baggage”, is hired within that same system at $691,000/yr for three years.  Meanwhile the NFL is aflutter over how much air is in a football.

Not even MLK's "dream” was as controversial as The Vetting & Hiring of Eugene C. Chizik.

Two Johns Swear "It's Not Political"... huh?


Jan 18,’15:  AgentPierce and I played Rock – Paper – Scissors.  My rock smashed his scissors so I get this one.  AP already got in his $.02 licks on this subject on Friday (LINK).

On Friday last, a high-profile fellow named "John” declared the actions of his organization “was not political”.   Everyone giggled and snorted.   What’s news about that you say?  N&O Editor JOHN Drescher always claims his organization is “NOT Political”..... giggle, snort.

Whoa.  This was another “John” – UNC Board of Governors Chairman JOHN Fennebresque.    The occasion was the Lame Ducking of Tom Ross...... giggle, snort.

About Rabid Bats and Fat Cats and


Jan 15,’15:   I’ve been holding back on TGU Updates because (1) it’s all so yucky.... (2) The Grand Chizikian Vett is, apparently, still “being debated internally” (burp, snort).   More dribs and drabs continue to drip so discourse upon it I must.

Meanwhile “Methodist Flats” ALMOST becomes “Muslim Flats”; and Marcus Paige shines AGAIN in his home away from home (even without Krazy Karl).  ..... So Half A League Onward We Ride.

If I had a nickel for every time I get an email that begins “your pal Art Chansky just said......” I could.......

Evicting Last Week’s "Greatest Ever".


Jan 12,’15:  The smartest guy I know in the media biz has a credo: IF The Media "makes you"; It's guaranteed that one day that same media will “break you”.

Via The Media the American public is forever anointing heroes / heroines de jour, declaring each latest incarnation to be “The Best Ever”.  “They” fall all over one another hoisting up some latest “flavor of the week” as “the best Ever” whatever..... until next week’s comes along.

The “Ever” throne has limited seating capacity.  Last week’s “Ever” must be evicted before this week’s takes up his/her temporary residency.   Their own clock starts ticking the second they sit upon that perilous pedestal.

An Email From Nip

Jan 11,'15:  An Email From: Nip ??  Another mysterious gal who “... saw your profile and wants to meet” ? .... or, maybe that Nigerian banker needing my assistance moving that money?  No, wait; I do know “a Nip”.  At least I did 45 years ago.   

A hard-nosed middle linebacker from Webster Groves, Missouri.... Short in stature.  Wide in chest.   Wasn’t he an attorney in Kansas City ?  It was “that Nip” – John “Nip” Weisenfels.   His out-of-the-blue email “woke up the echoes” of a very special season for a very special team......  The 1969 Big Eight Champion – Univ. of Missouri (“Mizzou”) Tigers coached by Dan Devine.

Another "Way" with Feet of Clay?


Jan 8,‘15:  Allowing that 94.8% of all human activity on Planet Earth is on hold awaiting “The Chizik Vetting” and whatever Chapter 157 of The Great Unpleasantness will be; there is another perplexing issue for the Jury of Public Opinion to resolve.   Do you think Bill Cosby is a serial sexual predator?  NOT Bill Cosby – Fat Albert – Cliff Huxtable et al ??

Is America as drunk on CosbyWay Wine as one regional faction has been on CarolinaWay wine?  Too drunk to admit they were bamboozled.... OR maybe not drunk at all?   All charges.... OK, most charges.... OK, some charges could be bogus?
