Den of Honor: The Florida Panthers Get It Right

I have been a very harsh critic of the Panthers over the past five or six years because I give a shit about the team when nobody in management for years clearly did. As a fan, it hurts to watch your team, the team’s heritage, and the fans be treated indifferently and poorly. We have […]

The Vatican and I Agree….

… on something. Seriously. While they didn’t check with me first, this article tells it all. It sort of relates to my infamous Led Zeppelin post by failing to mention Led Zeppelin at all. The actual article can be found on the Vatican’s website in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s official newspaper. If I’m going to […]

A Meeting With Stu Siegel

The Geography of a Recession is a very short presentation which will scare you. It should. Thanks Paul for this one. Keeps the economic “recovery” in perspective. I received for the umpteenth time the “Dear Dr Laura” letter. The contents are true, though the origins of the actual letter are unknown. I removed the name […]

USA 5, Canada 3: A Game for the Ages

The USA versus Canada hockey game was one of the best ever. Intense, exciting, invigorating, captivating, energetic, awesome! This game is what all hockey games should aspire to be. It’s definitely one of the five best I’ve ever seen. Probably the second best and only because I must give the edge to the 1980 Miracle […]

Panthers Autograph Session (And Idiot Roofers)

First, I had a fight at work today with Murton Roofing. I was already in a bad mood because of last night’s incompetence with Roto-Rooter. We have a roof at work that was installed 2004 by Murton Roofing. It has a 20-year warranty (2 years with Murton and the rest with GAF who made the […]

The Panthers Just Suck. Seriously. It’s THAT Bad.

Apparently I’m (in)famous now. As you may know I got special tickets to heckle Jay Bouwmeester mercilessly on his return to Florida 5 Feb 2010. Getty Images* sent a picture of me over the newswires and it’s here in this article on Yahoo Sports. Or just see the image here: “Florida Panthers fan holds up […]

Rick Rolling On The Subway Floor With A Chicken

We’ll start with technical stuff. I have patched the Firefox extension Timetracker 1.2.5 to work with Firefox 3.6 — there was no work done to the code. I fixed the version check line and added a 1 to the version so it read 1.2.51 but it appears to work fine. So, if you’re waiting to […]

Autographed Cards, Windows Woes, and more…

First, the last in my series of NHL collectible photos was posted at Flickr today. I have plenty of more stuff, but this is all you get to see. This photo shows the NHLPA Binder, NHL certificate of authenticity, and one page of nine cards. There are many pages and this is a complete set […]

Out Damned Cough

This cough sucks. Dry and hacky and it won’t go away. I hatesssssss it. It’s not as bad when I’m lying down in bed. Opposite of normal. Shout out to Tara. It’s okay: you can eat a PayDay bar if it makes you happy. This from Dave Higgins. It’s a subway map. But this one […]

Oh Damn

I wish this cough would go away. It makes me hurt. Dry, hacky, and makes my stomach and back muscles hurt. Maury shared this commercial with me. It will never even be considered to air in the US. The site’s in French, but the ad is in English, though you don’t have to speak a […]
