March Madness

Bragging About Nothing

I have to admit, I used to do this. I still might do it on occasion, but I try to avoid this particular annoyance as much as possible these days. Partially because I realize it doesn’t matter, but mostly because I have realized how stupid it sounds. People have to stop bragging about not doing […]

Best Weekend Ever

A lot of people have placed an undue focus on 2012 because they think the Mayans predicted the world would end later this year. We can accomplish very little by sitting and talking about the absurdity of an ancient culture using some stone tablet thousands of years ago to accurately predict the apocalypse. We’d probably […]

It Was Madness

I took off last Thursday and Friday to watch the first two days of March Madness along with the NCAA wrestling tournament. That’s why blogging has been light. Oh, and because I’m a master procrastinator. A few tidbits from my long weekend: The coffee maker broke. More on this in next week’s column. Short version […]

A New Kind of March Madness

I think everyone who went to college had a rich buddy who never listened to anyone. He had enough money to make his mistakes negligible. Wreck a car? Dad will get him a new one. Trash his apartment during a party? Ask Mom for money for something else and use it to re-furnish. No decision […]

There are four NFL playoff games today, two next week, a week off, then the Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl also doesn’t count. Seven games, then nothing, nada, zip. […]

Who’s Winning the Pool

For the second year in a row, I am running the NCAA basketball pool at work. The person who had run it in previous years couldn’t swing it last year, so I stepped in. I didn’t have many problems so took it on again this year. Things are going well, with the exception of my […]

It Just Doesn’t Matter

I went looking for something good to watch this morning before the second day of the basketball tournament started. I scored big time as “Meatballs” was one on of the movie channels. I love this movie. I think it doesn’t get enough credit for how entertaining it is. Plus, this scene pretty much summed up […]
