141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Well, this is quite a step down. The Faux coverage is awful, continually interrupted for commercials and focusing only on favored breeds. It fully justifies my attention to the UConn Huskies 100th consecutive victory last night in a game at Gampel which was closer than the score would indicate. There are 5 teams that could …

My Las Vegas Convention- A Happy Story

(originally in orange Sat Jun 17, 2006 at 07:01 PM PDT) I repeat it annually because there are lessons I don’t want to forget. Can you handle the truth?  How about a good story? If you are a regular reader you may know that I was State Co-ordinator of my meatspace club.  You may not …

141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

It’s once again time for that annual celebration of inbreeding and genetic disease that is the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Dogs have many admirable qualities including undeserved, unconditional love and should you have one in your temporary care I urge you to cherish it as I have mine (many over a century and a …

Throwball Championship The LI: Falcons v. Patsies

It’s that time of year again when it all comes down to who you hate the most and there’s no team easier to hate than the Patsies. Well, except maybe the ‘Boys. Sure their vaunted Quarterback is a cheater, a liar, and a non-performer. So is their Head Coach. And their principal owner. They are …

Puppy Bowl XIII

If you’ve been watching the Sunday morning gasbag Versailles Village shows (and I really can’t imagine why you would, my Packer loving therapist has forbidden me saying that Traumatic Brain Injury is preferable) you may perhaps be interested in a little drooling cuteness not dependent on blunt force lobotomy to lighten your day. Well, then …

Throwball Conference Championships

Just because I’m writing doesn’t mean I have anymore time than I told you about Friday. Tomorrow we are still traveling and posting (at least mine) will be non-existant. Also I’ll not attempt to live blog even the game I like as I’ll be too busy watching it and after it’s over I have a …

Throwball Divisional Playoffs: Steelers at Chiefs

Steelers looked damn good last week. Delayed by a morning ice storm it’s now dry as a bone and 33. I’ll be watching what I hope is only the season finale of Sherlock.

Throwball Divisional Playoffs: Packers at ‘Boys

It’s always a pleasure to root against the ‘Boys who’s fans are the rudest and most obnoxious in the NFL. Also they hail from Dallas, about the most miserable part of a State that we should give back to Mexico so we don’t have its bigots, fascists and gun nuts polluting the United States anymore. …

Throwball Divisional Playoffs: Seahawks at Falcons

This will hopefully be the first of a string of upsets in this round. My picks are the Seahawks, the Patsies (yeah I hate ’em, but I hate the Texans more), the Steelers (surprisingly impressive), and the Packers for obvious and frequently articulated reasons. The Seahawks are not just TMC’s preference, they beat the Falcons …
