The Wienermobile Dogs My Steps

I am avoiding packing by wasting time on today’s blog post. At least I have a cool experience to relate. I saw, live and in person, the legendary Wienermobile. Words and photos do not do justice to the awesomeness that it represents. The Wienermobile has been an obscure icon until raised to legendary status by […]

A long Diatribe and some updates

First, I must say, the Panthers are sucking so bad, it’s embarrassing. They are a train wreck. How bad is it? Legendary fan and media-whore VanMurph finally thew a fit over it and has jumped in with the rest of us who are saying what the fuck is wrong with this team? You know, many […]

The Dave Retires

I am sad to report the leader of all Barryons, our icon, the Dave himself has announced he’s going on indefinite hiatus today. I’m crushed and sad. I’d like to rail on about how insensitive and selfish he’s being, but that would be insensitive and selfish. Instead, I wish him the very best of luck […]
