That was the most relieving end to a football game in a long time. And they even name-checked Woodland Hills. (Though from what I’ve read lately, it’s probably not a place to be proud of anymore. Be sure to read the part where a student tries to excuse his punching a cop because he thought […]

I’m off to Indiana for Thanksgiving, and like a good stereotype, I look forward again this year to eating potatoes. I will not be consuming a six-pack of beer to make it the Irish seven-course meal, and for the record, the one about the two dudes, the genie and the sea of Guinness is a […]
Two stories: 1. A whale swam so far up the Amazon River that he gets to take a boat back to the ocean. 2. Another whale got trapped in fishing lines, but freed itself and bailed. I got caught in that stuff scuba diving one time and it took me a long time to get […]
Last night I was hitting the new gym — this one has TVs on the treadmills, so I rocked the informative running action — when this story came on CNN: Saudi Court Ups Punishment for Gang-Rape Victim The gist of the story is that a woman was gang-raped by seven Saudi men, yet the Saudi […]
The U.S. government says attacks in Iraq are down 55 percent since last summer, thanks to the American surge and better cooperation with Iraqi police.

My hair’s about at the stage where I need to cut it again. Fortunately I have my trusty $20 clippaz to get the job done. I was thinking the other day about just how much money these things have saved me. I started cutting my own hair about sophomore year of college and haven’t gone […]
Here is a link from the Boston Globe detailing ways the U.S. government could alternatively spend the amount of funds that has gone to the Iraq war. I think I would take Forbes.com’s example and outfit 4,073,333,333 people in custom-made leather underpants. That way, nearly 2/3 of the Earth’s population would be just a little […]
The Washington Post ran this thought-provoking article about the dearth of bluefin tuna in the sea. I’m not cool with that, because tuna is awesome. As much as I love tuna sushi, I’ll think twice about ordering it now. I like my oceans healthy and full of awesome fish, so the whales have somebody to […]
Is any football fan surprised that the Cowboys picked up a dude who pled guilty to weapons and assault charges? I’d like to see them play the Bengals in an arrest-off.
This guy came out last year, but I had to give blog props to Pittsburgh’s newest and best rapper: 412!
