I thought Lane Kiffin might be in trouble at USC.

I didn't think he would get fired before the end of September.

Still holding on to idea of Jack Del Rio being the new head coach of the Trojans.

Kaleb is 13.

My son's birthday was yesterday, but we are celebrating it today. He's 13. We are taking him and two of his cousins out for wings at a sports bar.

Anyone who read Fumblerooski: How the NCAA Dropped the Ball on the Coming Football Playoff  will remember me using his name as the name of my playoff format.

I don't do sports bars on football days (or nights) believe it or not because I don't really enjoy the atmosphere. People getting liquored up while cheering for their favorite team (or against yours) is a disaster waiting to happen in my opinion.

I hope we are out of there by time the 3:30 games began.

Should be interesting.

Football Night(s) in America

As much as I love watching football on the tube, 5 nights a week is a little much.

Follow what I'm saying...what makes football special is the importance of each and every game. Well, when you televise so many games between college, pro, and high school, it takes away some of that important feel.

All that being said, I'll tune in to the 2nd tier college games that the mother ship (ESPN) airs on Friday night during commercial breaks of my NHL doubleheader action on NHL Network tonight.

Did I mention I love my NHL.... 

My bad

Smashwords sent back some data showing I had some errors in my formatting for The Tebow article.

The formatting has changed a wee bit since I last published anything at the start of the year.

All this means is the Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple crowd will probably have to wait another week to down load it from their sites.

Again...its free on ALL outlets except Amazon. I'm expecting it to do well. It has had more than a respectable showing on the Smashword's site where Non Fiction doesn't do nearly as well as Fiction. At least in my limited experience in self publishing.

Enjoy...and leave me a fair ratings. Indie authors LOVE fair ratings.

Into the darkness

Red boxed star trek into the darkness this week.

I liked it even better than I did at theatre.

Gotta give it 2 jj abrahms he has pulled it off rebuilding the trek brand.


In speaking of fighting...all I want 4 Christmas is 4 somebody to whoop Mayweather's ass.

Fight night

When the braves and brewers got into it last night did the batter ever touch the plate after the homerun?

Super mario

Have a well deserved retirement mario revera

From yankee AND red sox nation

49ers up big

I guess the 49ers demise has been greatly exaggerated

Pay 4 play

I probably will write an article on paying college athletes next

Seems 2 be a sizzling hot topic right now

Ill probably make up my mind and start some research this weekend

Some football Predictions

Prediction 1: Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech will either be fired or will retire (get fired) at the end of this season.

Prediction 2: The same thing will happen to Mack Brown at Texas.

Prediction 3: This one is not as straight forward so listen up:

Nick Saban will ONLY leave the Alabama job for another gig under 2 conditions.

Number One: There would have to be a "Death Penalty" type of scandal discovered of goings on within the university.

Number Two (More Likely): IF the Dallas Cowboys under achieve again this season with Jason Garrett at the helm, I could see the owner Jerry Jones offering the head coaching job to Saban.

I could see Saban taking it ONLY under these conditions: Saban sees his lack of NFL success as the last remaining challenge of his coaching career. Jones would have to make him the highest paid head coach in the history of sport. Jones would have to give him TOTAL control of football operations. And finally, Jones would have to give him a piece of the team. Remember: 1 percent of any NFL team, especially the Dallas Cowboys, is worth millions alone.   


Report says MLB commish Bud Selig to retire in 2015.

How about taking Roger Gödel of the NFL with u.

Paul Oliver

I honestly don't remember Paul Oliver of the San Diego Chargers who killed himself.

But it doesn't mean he is or was irrelevant.

I'm praying for all your family, friends, and fans you left behind.

Life can indeed seem to be a lonely place.

Reach out to SOMEONE and make them listen if you have to.

RIP, Paul, from a complete stranger.

skinny people

I think we should enslave all skinny people, make them eat until they feel and look like the rest of us.

Desperate Niners

Desperate times for 49ers against Rams. Good but desperate teams usually find a away 2 get it done. I'm taking Niners in a close one.

On the Eight Day

Pens-Wings preseason tonight.

U guys only WISH you had it this good.

My Center Ice Package starts next Tuesday.

And on the eight day God created NHL Center Ice...

Josh Freeman

Oh yea, I do talk sports here sometimes.

Josh Freeman probably has started his last game for the Bucs.

I don't expect the Bucs to find a trading partner, unless a starter goes down before the trade deadline.

Remember, Freeman is an unrestricted free agent to be. It makes no sense to trade valuable draft picks for a guy who has been shaky as well as a guy who can walk away for nothing at the end of the year.

They're probably right about me.

On a lighter note, I had fun doing my Smashwords interview. I hope you guys who have, and who will read it enjoyed it as well.

I'm not nearly as silly as the interview portrays. In fact, I'm often accused by family and friends of being to serious minded and never able to relax and have fun.

They're probably right about me. 


No matter what side of the fence you are on, this Washington gridlock has gotten old.

The Meatgrinder

Wow! Smashwords has really grown. It's taking almost a week for my latest work to get through the meatgrinder. I'm hopeful everything is good so I can get "Gospel" out to readers on ITunes, Kobo, Barnes and Noble and other retailers.  

trying to regroup

I took the night off from work. I didn't get much sleep. I'm stressed like crazy at work. I thought it was in my best interest to stay home tonight and try to regroup for one last stand before I'm off this weekend.

The Gospel

I finished downloading my newest E-book at Smashwords a few minutes ago. I'm hopeful that it will pass through the meat grinder without any issues.

I'm headed over to Amazon in a sec. A special note to you kindle holders. You can download it for free one of two ways:

Either go to the Smashwords site and download it directly from there for free or enter the e-book's info into the price matching area. If enough of you guys do this you'll turn that 99 cent price tag into free.

Either way, this E-book should be available within the next 24 hours at your favorite downloading spot

I thank both new and returning readers in advance.

Tomorrow Night

My first draft is going well. I'm over half way done with it. The words are flowing well, and everything seems to coming together. One thing is I've been debating with the Tebow attics for years now, so I'm repeating a lot of what's already been said. It was just about putting the key to the keyboard.

I'm going to stop and fuel up (eat). I should finish the second half this afternoon. It's looking like it will come up in far shorter words than Fumblerooski, Which is good for EVERYBODY.

Anyway, I'm going to grab a bite, get back at it, let it breathe, edit, and probably have this puppy posted by tomorrow night.

Bringing out the best in me

The event happening tomorrow has been along time coming.

I've been wanting to get something (Tebow) off my chest for a long time coming.

I finished designing the e-book cover a few minutes ago. It's good. It's serviceable.

But it's been nearly a year since I've written anything original.

Leave it to ol' Tebow to force me to dust off the keyboard and hack something out.

You shouldn't be surprised.

Tebow is known to bring out the best in everybody. Right? Right. Right!

Sometimes life is good.

Chilling at home tonight watching Ranger-Flyers preseason on  the tube.
Only a couple weeks before the real games begin.
Sometimes life is good.

King James meet Queen James

Congrats on the big wedding, boy!!!

Take it from me bruh, when you have as many off days as Lebron James does, you better get that house work done.

Paper Champs

I guess the experts have already crowned the Seattle Seahawks champions after only 2 weeks of play.

I'll admit they'll be a tough out in the NFC playoffs, especially with that madhouse of a home field advantage they have.

Stay tuned.


It looks as if the Steelers that we've come to love or loathe are done.

Time to retool.

Tebow Rally

Look at all those potential season ticket holders and jersey buyers that showed up at the Sign Tebow rally down at Everbank Field yesterday.

They are a loud minority just like I've been saying along.

I'm this publishing a Tebow article on Smashwords.

Good norning

Just seein if the mobile version of this thing still works.
