Shocking News!


The semester is off to a good start. Here in Greenville, we're bracing for some wintry weather overnight. My wife and I have finally figured it out. People here in the South must sit around and eat French toast when we get snow or freezing rain since beforehand they raid the stores for bread, milk, and eggs.

This Saturday is the Republican primary here in South Carolina, with the Democrat primary the following Saturday. We'll be glad eventually to be able to make it through dinner without half a dozen calls from volunteers, pollsters, and push-pollsters! In an effort to get our minds off the 2008 election that has been going on for almost a year already (!), here's a little something else to read.

This is old news, but I'm passing it along anyway as a reminder....

The Green Bay Packers delivered a shocking announcement today.

Their starting quarterback this Sunday will be Mrs. Brett Favre, who will play for Brett during the first quarter. Fans in Green Bay were shocked when this announcement was made, but Mrs. Favre assured the fans that, "Hey, I know this game. I live with Brett. I have taken several road trips on the team plane. I've gone to the pre-game meals. I know a lot of the Packers. I've played around with a lot of the Packers in the back yard. I've tossed the football with them, and I know what a slot right 60-Prevent-Slot-Hook-And-Go is and I know how to avoid a corner blitz."

So they polled the people in Green Bay, and 50% of Packers fans are excited, motivated, looking forward to the big game.

All right, you think that's ridiculous? Here's another announcement for you to reread:

In a shocking announcement today, Mrs. Hillary Clinton announced that she is running for president of the United States because she knows Bill Clinton and has lived with him, and she was there on a lot of trips to China and other places around the world, and she has really cared about kids for 35 years. She's fought for and stood up for kids, and she's tried to fix health care. She heard her husband speak about foreign policy and she thinks fifty percent of the American people say, "That's good enough for us."

I received a picture today that pretty well says it all!

So much for getting our minds off this stuff, huh!? I usually stay away from politics on my blog, but I figured that the vast majority of my readers (the "vast right wing conspiracy"?) would be far more amused than offended.

Rookie Card for Sale


The following comes from an email I received from one of the readers of my blog. I cannot vow to its authencity....

Bonds hitting homer

It's no news that Barry Bonds hit homerun No. 755 at San Diego to tie Hank Aaron's record and received a warm reception along with some boos. There are some who believe that Barry Bonds should be disqualified for using steroids. I do not really want to enter that debate.

Whether Barry took steroids at some point in his career, I don't know. I just want to capitalize on the current situation to sell a prized possession - I am selling one of my Barry Bonds baseball cards to the highest bidder. Below is the highly prized Rookie Card that I bought in 1986.

Let the bidding begin!
