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 lost it’s creative...

This amazing song is almost 30 years old, yet it is still as new as tommorrow’s sunrise. It’s a classic and yet one more example of why the Rolling Stones are the kings of rock. It’s rythmic, soulful, and yet guitar-dominated.

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 in the real world. So Kerry’s...

While others stew about John Kerry’s remarks, the hard reality is that there are terrible acts done by some soldiers in Iraq, this is one of them. The rape victim, Abeer Qassim Hamza, was 14 years old. Accordin to reports: Steven D. Green, a 21-year-old former Army private first class in the 101st Airborne Division, appeared in a federal magistrate’s courtroom in Charlotte on Monday. FBI agents had arrested Green on Friday and he is being held in Charlotte without bond pending a transfer to Louisville, Kentucky. He was honorably...

As the election draws closer, people go to more desparate actions to achieve an objective. For example, take this man in this video who was intent on chasing down Senator George Allen, Jr. (R) Virginia. He was a little too intense. So much so that Allen staffers fought him to the ground. Here’s the video: ...

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 decided to issue threats and not pay...

A sad end to a great career. Very different from Tiki Barber, who’s ready to get out. What will Marin do with the rest of his life? Martin out for 2006, unsure he’ll ever play againAssocaited Press HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Curtis Martin’s season ended Wednesday because of a lingering knee injury, and the New York Jets’ star running back isn’t sure if he’ll ever play again. “I’m officially not playing this year,” Martin said. “Retirement — that may be the inevitable result....

I saw his press conference on The NFL Network, and I give him high praise for being forthcoming and honest. A great example of what to do in such a scenario. Merriman drops appeal, will serve suspensionESPN.com news services Shawne Merriman made the right move in dropping his appeal of his four-game suspension for a steroid product found in a supplement. The Chargers linebacker could have gone to a hearing next Tuesday in New York but he had little chance of winning. Players who test positive for a tainted supplement rarely win. Knowing...

Roger weighs in on the LA situation in this interview. Commissioner Goodell with T.J. Simers & Fred Roggin of AM 950 Los Angeles October 30, 2006T.J. Simers: On how the NFL turned off all of Los Angeles coming out of the New Orleans owners meeting? Roger Goodell: We’re trying to be direct with our fans, and tell them what our challenges are. You know that I’m a pretty direct person, but from our standpoint, we’ve been working on the L.A. solution and we’re trying to be part of that solution and doing something that’s good...

Brady leads Pats to 31-7 win over Vikings NFL.com wire reports MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota counts itself among the many NFL franchises trying to copy the New England Patriots’ plan for success. The Vikings learned on Monday night that they still have a lot of catching up to do. Tom Brady beat Minnesota’s relentless rushing defense by simply throwing over it for 372 yards and touchdowns to four different receivers, and the Patriots pounded the Vikings 31-7 to win their sixth straight regular-season road game. New England’s...

Bears pound Niners 41-10, improve to 7-0 NFL.com wire reports CHICAGO (Oct. 29, 2006) — Brian Urlacher ‘s one-handed interception was headed to the highlight reel as soon as he tumbled to the ground after somehow batting the ball to himself. Urlacher’s stellar play symbolized what kind of afternoon it was for the refreshed and still unbeaten Chicago Bears — and how frustrating the day was for the San Francisco 49ers. Wearing bright orange uniforms and showing their speed on defense and special teams, the Bears overwhelmed...

Romo, Dallas stun Carolina with big rally NFL.com wire reports CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 29, 2006) — Tony Romo found a way to put a smile back on Bill Parcells’ face. Romo rallied the Cowboys from a 14-point first-quarter deficit, passing for 270 yards and a touchdown, and Julius Jones ran for 94 yards and a score to help the Cowboys beat the Carolina Panthers 35-14. The Cowboys set a team record with 25 fourth-quarter points. “He’s a guy who’s been miserable all week,” said receiver Terrell Owens, Romo’s...

Young, Titans get better of Texans NFL.com wire reports NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 29, 2006) — Vince Young danced on the grass, tossing his cap to cheering fans as he made his final exit from the Tennessee Titans’ field. David Carr spent most of the second half grabbing the neck of his jersey, angry at being benched for committing too many turnovers. At least Young left some people in Houston happy: Young finally admitted he was glad to beat his hometown team after he ran for a touchdown and threw for another, and the Tennessee...

Vick tosses another win, 29-27 over Cincy NFL.com wire reports CINCINNATI (Oct. 29, 2006) — Michael Vick has found a balance. His passer rating is just as impressive as his 40-yard dash these days. Vick threw three more touchdown passes, leading the Atlanta Falcons to a 29-27 victory over a Cincinnati Bengals team that had never seen anything quite like the show he put on. Few teams have. The mercurial quarterback has led the Falcons (5-2) to consecutive wins over the defending Super Bowl champion Steelers and the defending AFC North...

Ravens flex their muscle in 35-22 victory NFL.com wire reports NEW ORLEANS (Oct. 29, 2006) — Blasted off his feet as he threw, Steve McNair lay on his back for a moment, then propped up his head, grinning after another first-down pass. In his return from a concussion and strained neck two weeks ago, McNair never shied away from contact, throwing accurately in the face of penetrating defenders or scrambling for key first downs. By the time the New Orleans Saints figured out how to slow him down, McNair had run for one touchdown and...

In this video we see some classic meltdowns by NFL coaches Herman Edwards, Mike Ditka, Jim Mora, Dennis Green, and Jim Fassel after losing games, and including the most recent tirade given by Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Dennis Green. ...

Wow, it’s been since May that Wonder Woman Director Josh Whedon’s finished the script for the Wonder Woman movie that he and Matrix enabler Joel Silver want to produce, and there’s still no star selected. My feeling is that he’s rewriting it, and still has not created something that meets Warner Brother’s standards. Why do I write this? Because Whedon reports that he was to meet Warner execs around August 29th, and now it’s October. Late October. So it’s logical to assume that he’s...

Raiders KO defending champs 20-13 NFL.com wire reports OAKLAND, Calif. (Oct. 29, 2006) — The Pittsburgh Steelers might have been better off if Big Ben sat out this game. Chris Carr returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown, Nnamdi Asomugha also took back an interception by Ben Roethlisberger for a score and the Oakland Raiders mounted a late goal-line stand to hold on for a 20-13 victory over Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger, playing a week after being knocked out with a concussion against Atlanta, struggled from the start against...
