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”.

Half A League Onward... into the Breach of 2015!


Jan 1,’15:  Ahhh, the glorious potential of a brand New Year.  A pristine canvas awaiting multitudes of clever brushstrokes culminating in endless exclamations of “I Told You So”.

As in centuries of pristine canvases past, humanity shall persist in its noble quest to reinvent wheels and to cram square pegs into round holes.  Followed as the night the day, by bellowing laments of shadowy conspiracies and bureaucratic bunglings preventing said quest to successfully cram.

“Half a league.  Half a league.  Half a league onward.....”  Once more into the Breach of Human Foolishness we ride.

Thrill of Victory / Agony of Defeat Triangle-style


Dec 27,'14:  Our local bowling teams are back home.   Winners & Losers settle in for a long winter of boasting, bloviating, blaming and bellyaching.

WuffWorld is, understandably, euphoric.  Visions of a 2015 Football Final Four have quickly replaced sugar plums in lupine dreams. ..... Conversely, BitterBlueZoners are in a hizzy fit.   They are organizing car washes and bake sales to raise $10,000,000 for the "Lets Us Hire Jim Harbaugh" Sweepstakes. ....... not really!  :-)

Dillusion Abounds from Bell Tower to Bell Tower!  The more things change, the more they stay the same.   Gotta Luv it!

RIMSHOTS: Finebaum, GPA Plumpers, Bowl Swag, etc


Dec 23.’14:  Regular commenter “Yogi” beseeched “bring back Rimshots” which I was planning to do anyway.  Another commenter noted that “if you don’t write about TGU (and “sports crap”) you will lose a large % of viewers.”   But not a viewers segment I've ever cared about.

Yes, we do get a regular dose of both ABC and UNC board monkey bandwagon viewers whenever we do a TGU Update.  Duh!  I will write about TGU until it stops percolating and festering or until Carol Folt can dunk, whichever comes first.  If I cared about board monkey viewers I would run pics of nekikid cheerleaders or give out John Swofford’s secret bank account # “in the Caymans”.

Merry Christmas Yogi!  Here is a Rimshots.
