Paris Hilton Exposed Again!

As you can tell from today's post title... it's a sports blog!
Monday was my first night attempting to be a Denver Broncos fan.  They played really well. But, as an abused Lions fan during the entire game I kept waiting for them to fall apart. Surely there's a fumble coming. This is where they throw the interception, right? Here comes the prevent defense that prevents us from winning.  But, they just got better as the game went on. I'm not sure what to do. I feel dirty.
So am I a traitor to the Lions? Well, let me put it this way.  I still root for them, but it's like watching sports on ESPN Classics. What's the fun if you already know the outcome?
As a current Lions fan said to me this morning... "...take away the first quarter and we win 21-13".
I don't want to go back to that kind of abusive relationship.

What's the difference between a Hockey mom and a pitbull? What a great ad-lib. Look no matter what your politics you gotta admit Palin has made things fun. The press doesn't know what to make of her. The other side doesn't know how to attack her. McCain doesn't know how to outshine her. She's what Obama and the press want Obama to be and therefore makes him (and Biden and McCain for that matter) look like what the are... Washington politicians. It's about time.
I give her 3 months to become corrupted.

Not Again!

STUPID BUSH! Once again New Orleans is wiped out because of the failure of this administration to care even a little about the common folk. What a bunch of jerks. I think this should be all the evidence we need to start the impeachment!
What's that? It didn't get wiped out? It wasn't that bad? Stuff put in place worked well? Oh.
Well, it's about time they got a Democrat governor into office who straightened things out and showed Bush how to get things done. It's about time some common sense and compassion and competence was on display.
What's that? There was a new governor? He was a very conservative Republican? Oh.
Hey, did you hear about that moose hunting, oil loving, nut case they nominated as VP? Watch out New Orleans.

I Don't Get It

Okay, as someone who speaks on a regular basis I tuned in to Obama's speech last night to see how you hold the attention of 80,ooo people. I don't get it. Maybe I'm just missing something but that was pretty average. I can give you a whole bunch of people who do better than that on a weekly basis let alone when you've prepared "the speech of your life" on subjects you speak on time after time after time. I guess we just don't have that high a bar for politicians. I wonder if regular church goers would think their pastor speaks as well, or better than, what we saw Obama do last night?
On the other hand, McCains VP today? Not bad. Much more genuine and seemed to convey passion much better than Obama.
But still, an historic night as we have our first black Presidential nominee.

It's Time

Okay, I thinks it's time to just shut New Orleans down and find another place to live. I know it's beautiful and full of cultural heritage and has a great view of the gulf. BUT IT'S ALSO WIPED OUT EVERY OTHER YEAR BY A HURRICANE! Look living on the edge of a volcano offers a great view of the countryside and cheap natural heat but you just can't live there.
And while we're at it, move at least 100 yards back from the Mississippi River, the edge of the Pacific Ocean, anywhere where people with machetes attack, and the cannibal village next to the Walmart.

Loving Colorado!

Okay, so we have a park near the house with 25+ miles of moutain bike/hiking trails that we've been going to and just exploring. Well, last night as we hike alone, we're going down a pretty rough trail through a ravine, when what do we hear? A bunch of coyotes just going nuts! The boys freaked out and it was close enough it made us leash the dog and change direction.
Gotta love Colorado.

Sunday Night Church

It was a pretty cool Sunday night service in Denver last night. We had a Catholic nun, and a rabbi, and a Baptist choir. All we needed was a pychic and a voodoo priest and we'd have covered most our bases. This is the party of seperation of church and state? Looks like church outnumbered state about 6 to one.
We hear so much about keeping the church out of the state is it time to hear about the state staying out of the church? If this happens at the Republican convention the other side will have a meltdown as they claim the "religious right bogey man" is back in the house.
Look, I believe it's absolutely positive to have the Church as a cornerstone of our government. I thought what Rick Warren did at the Saddleback forum with McCain and Obama was a great way for the Church to be involved in the issues of our day. Unfortunately, usually we're not getting the Church we're just getting religion... and most Americans don't know the difference.
