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?

One of those "Everybody Knew" People


Jan 6,’15:  ALERT:  This is another of those insufferably syrupy “BobLee’s Home Town Memories” columns.  Not ANOTHER ONE?  Yep.   

If you grew up in a small town around the 60s you surely had “a George Denmark”.   How could a small town exist without “a George Denmark”.  Everybody knew “George” even if they didn’t know him personally.

Our George Denmark passed away on Monday along with Miss America 1945 – Bess Myerson and 24 hours after Stuart Scott.

Always Die in 3's?

Jan 5,’15:  We started it 7-8 years ago - the “Celebrities Always Die in Three’s” game.  Celebrities DO indeed “die in 3’s”.  No one knows why.  Sometimes, of course, more than 3.... Sometimes less than 3 at a time.  Sometime 3.

The trick to this macabre socio-cultural parlour game is (1) Who is “a celebrity” and (2) how long a period of time is measured between the first and the third reported passing.   Duke Snider NOT counting was a travesty.  “Little Jimmy” Dickens might not count (he should).   “Ellie Mae Clampett” and Stuart Scott will count.

Ducks VS Bucks .... and CHIZIK !!


Jan 2,’14:  HAPPY FREAKIN’ FOOTBALL NEW YEAR!   An Absolutely Amazing Day in College Football.   Both actual games in the CFP Semis were Incredible Football Theater, each in a very different way PLUS..... in a remote section of America, once known as Tobacco Road, there was a TSUNAMIC KABOOOOM. Lord Knows at BLSays we do LOVE a KABOOOOM!

Trying to describe yesterday is akin to that Okeefeenokee swamp boy who fell into a vat of molasses.  Rolling his eyes heavenward, he simply asked The Good Lord to “give me a mouth to fit the occasion”.
