My Obligatory Soccer Column 2.0


July 3,’14:  So I get this email from The Grand Wizard of Websites (TGWoW) reminding me that, to stay certified, I HAVE TO write a column about “soccer”.   I reminded TGWoW that I had discussed “soccer” several weeks ago.   TGWoW said “That’s not enough.  You have to do a definitive essay on “soccer” that can be included in the Grand Archives of All Essays About Soccer circa 2014.”

I said fine, thinking it might be nice to write a column that does not mention Wainstein, “Dickie”, Little Carol, and “how many ABCers does it take to tear down a rafter?”  So, here goes.....

My overriding premise is that, like Caesar’s Gaul, attitudes about soccer are.....

AP: Why Blondie Loves America....


July 3,'14:  Christmas has "Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus".   If 3-4 years starts a similar trend, then "Why Blondie Loves America" is our annual Official 4th Of July column.  

Blondie is (1) Mrs BobLee and (2) proud mother of "Kid" and (3) the fire-breathingest, flag wavingest gal that ever "shot the bird" at Obama when his slimey lyin' mug pops up on TV.  FWIW.... you don't want to know what she thinks about MoochelleMyBelle.

Here's how all this got started per Blondie herownself......  My friend, Jerry Agar wanted to do a segment on his old NY show back in 2007, Why I Love America, and asked me to contribute to the list. Here is what he used on his show.  Happy Independence Day!!

Monday was a REALLY Bad Day for ......


June 30:  Monday was a REALLY Bad day for fans of Obamacare AND Flagships.   I celebrated the SCOTUS decision with AgentPierce in the morning, then hurried off to another “Power Lunch" at, believe it or not, AMEDEO’s.    

My iPhone started vibrating around 2:30..... when I got around to checking it, there were already dozens of TruBlues poised on ledges ready to jump.  The Brickyard celebration is tentatively set for 8 PM.   Celebrants are asked to BYO sparklers and bottle rockets.

First question..... will the NCAA goons stay at the toney Siena or an Extended Stay facility.   If it’s the latter ...... double Uh Oh.

The Good - The Bad - The Crazy SOBs


June 24,’14:   There are a lot of folks caught up in The Great Unpleasantness (TGU) either as Prime Time Players.....  spear carriers....  kinda-naive bystanders... and many many in the bi-partisan Peanut Gallery.

A lot of good people are swirling about in all this, more than we acknowledge and....  Some not so good sneaky sumbitches, with significantly warped institutional ideologies, playing loosey goosey with situational ethics.

Today - for Entertainment Purposes Only - we take an askance glance at these proceedings.....

AP: ByBy Bully... Thanks for the memories.


June 24,’14:
  Dagnabit, I’m gonna miss Bully Barber and his Monday Hoot’n Haters.   Whatever will we have to look forward to each Monday until “24” comes on at 9:00 PM?

Yep, Hoot ‘n Hate 2014 is done – fini - kaput.  Stick a fork in it.  Take down the circus tent and load the animals into their cages (aka “ rusty VW mini-buses”).   The 2014 “short session” of the NC General Assembly is drawing to a close..... and with it even any pretend purpose for Rev William “Bully” Barber’s weekly shenanigans.

As the June breezes scatter Bully’s last pulpit-pounding rage thru downtown Raleigh, we are left with but fading memories.

Playing The End Game Game


June 23,’14:  We finally got a peek at Investigator Wainstein aka “$900/hour Ken From Washington”.   This leaves Deborah Crowder as the only yet-to-be-seen PrimeTimePlayer in the NeverEndin’ Unpleasantness.   

“$900/hour Ken” expects to turn in his exhaustive report “in the Fall” giving us 3-4 more months of thumb twiddlin’, bitchin’, blamin’, and teeth-grindin’.   Also it keeps me, Dan Kane and “the BusinessWeek guy” in easy column fodder.   Every ill wind blows someone’s sails.

Our recent “Lunch with ....” columns have gone mega-viral resulting in yours truly being summarily insulted by being called......

"Mary" has moxie.... and doesn't like Coach K.


June 17,’14:  They are both from the South Side of Chicago.... but she doesn’t drop F-bombs in conversation.   Neither of them are too popular along picturesque Franklin Street these days.  He would certainly be recognized....  she was not as we strolled that legendary sidewalk earlier today.  Both their names start with “M”.

She had a cheese quesadilla.  I had a cobb salad.   Who she ?   Oh, I’m sorry.  I had lunch Tuesday with Mary Willingham. ......

On A More Pleasant Subject

June 16,’14:  This is a deep cleansing breath column.   One that does not beat a certain “not dead yet” horse of infamous unpleasantness.   Fear not you fans of unpleasantness, we shall return to our favorite dumpster fire, but not today.

Mid June is either a marvelous buffet of sports viewing.... or a plethora of yawnful banality.   It’s not exactly a “tweener season” but neither is it “must see TV” unless it is to you.   We’ve got The CWS in Omaha, The World Cup in Rio, The Stanley Cup Finals, The US Open in Pinehurst (The Village of .....) and The NBA Finals.
