Naming suggestions for the Washington NFL team!

With the news that the Washington football team is changing its name, I thought that this would be an opportune time to weigh in with some suggestions.  Suggestions that stand apart.  Of course, you'll have your standards (Tigers, Bulldogs, Wildcats) and your regional go-to's (Senators, Presidents, Lobbyists and Swamp Things), but I'd like to recommend…

February 2, 2014: Superbowl Extra Large 8! My prediction! And admonishment! Our Stargate Atlantis Rewatch continues with Rising II!

Who is going to win Superbowl XLVIII (a.k.a. Superbowl Extra Large 8)?  Got your pick?  Well, so does Madden 25, EA's football-based video game that predicts the Broncos beating Seahawks in overtime, 31-28: http://games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged-in/broncos-win-super-bowl-xlviii-predicts-madden-nfl-144805173.html So what?  So what if a computer simulation says the Denver Broncos will be hoisting the Vince Lombardi trophy in New…

At first, she claimed it was broken.  Then fractured.  Then possibly badly sprained.  Then slightly sprained.  Then, when I noted what seemed like her limping off the wrong foot - kinda twisted.  Still, she milked it for all she was worth, insisting we…

September 21, 2009: The All NFL Issue! The Tip of the Week! My Top 5 Most Hated/Loved Teams!

Back in the day, I was known to wager on a game or two.  It was a hobby of sorts.  I’d keep statistics on all the major pro sports - NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB - charting individual and team developments over the course of a given season, comparing such variables as home and away…

February 1, 2009: Dogs, Mailbag, and NFL – I Renounce Thee!

A lot of interesting takes on this whole Blu-ray debate. To upgrade or not to upgrade? That is the question. Well, after reading some of your informed opinions regarding continuing technological developments and the likelihood that tomorrow’s hot, new gadget will be next week’s microfilm, tape deck, or Vin Diesel, I’ve decided to forego any…
