Tweet Follow me Well, Art Shell really stuck his foot in it. In the article that appears below, he says “I like Tom Walsh.” But that’s not the way a team wins. Later in the article, Raiders Owner Al Davis says that Tom Walsh “Is a bright guy. You’ll see that in time.” Wait. It only takes a few moments of time for any level of intellectual greatness to emerge in any field of endeavor, and that includes football. What are the Raiders going to do, wait until they have the personel...

Tweet Follow me Almost every week — in fact of late every week — we hear or read about how great New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick is or how many rings he has. Last week, all we listened to was how Belichick was going to come out with a mad-scientist-level game plan for the Colts game. Or if it’s not Bill Belichick, it’s Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Bill Parcells. Yes, I know both have a combined total of five Super Bowl rings, but there’s one coach who has the second highest...

Tweet Follow me Prime-time punchout By Phil [email protected] FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Peyton Manning piled up the big numbers but the Indianapolis Colts’ much-maligned defense made a bunch of the big plays Sunday as it contributed five takeaways to the Colts’ 27-20 victory over the New England Patriots at rowdy, chilly Gillette Stadium. It’s only midseason, but the Colts’ 30th victory in their past 33 regular-season games pushed them to 8-0 and gave them what amounts to a...

Tweet Follow me Ted Haggard, the outspoken enemy of Gay Marriage, was just filmed live on CNN explaining that he did buy sex from Mike Jones, the male prostitute who’s accusing Haggard of having sex with him. Haggard says he went to visit the Mike Jones but didn’t exactly explain who referred him to the man, or for that matter why he purchased Meth from him. He would only say that he didn’t use the drug — “I threw it away.” There’s more to this story. Stay tuned. ...

Tweet Follow me As the number of websites and blogs and video blogs grows, and the rate of increase of readers away from traditional media and to new media continues — apparently unabated given the fact that the currently young population that gets 70 percent of its news online is only getting older — there are more and more debates over the “value” of new media. These discussions are generated by advertisers and marketers, understandably upset and vexed over this rather sudden traffic shift...

Tweet Follow me I now know I’ve been around a bit when this happens. I have grown up with Bob Barker, patted myself on the back for rightly guessing a price, dreaming that I was the winner of the showcase, and drolling over the Price Is Right girls.

Tweet Follow me I ran accross an article in Fortune Magazine, and linked to here at the title of this post, annoucing that Yahoo!’s been flirting with AOL over the possible action of aquisition of the web portal. I know AOL has its enemies but I really don’t think being eaten by Yahoo!’s the best answer for the company’s woes. Indeed, I think it should fashion itself as an alternative to AOL. It’s already doing that, but I think AOL should keep up the work. My feeling is that Yahoo!’s...

Tweet Follow me Senator John Kerry’s being cooked by the PR goose for making a statement that at first glance seems hurtful. Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat, told a college audience earlier this week that some young people might get “stuck in Iraq” if they don’t make it through the educational system. While he’s backpedaling on this, here’s the video: But is he wrong? When I was growing up the Military was where African American men went who really could not get it all together...

Tweet Follow me As the election draws closer, people go to more desparate actions to achieve an objective.

Here’s the video: ...

Tweet Follow me There’s a person called “Yamia” at Wikipedia who I’m openly lobbying to be removed from his “gate keeper” role. Yamia’s role has obviously caused the person to think more highly of who they are than what they do. This all started when I was posting information on a subject that was from text from the SBS website. Yamia tried to claim that I don’t own the site, which is totally stupid. But not willing to see example or listen to reason, this person...
