A post about the four major sports in the U.S. and BLM may be of interest. I’ve never been a hockey fan so there’s no need for me to boycott that. I lived in or near Chicago during the Jordan years and was a big fan. I haven’t watched it much since then. I saw a small part of a game in a restaurant recently. I’ll pass. They’re supporters of BLM but don’t want to know anything about abuses by the ChiComs. I was a fan of the Cubs but PC, the mask hysteria and BLM have me boycotting them too. I was a big pro football fan but stopped watching it four years ago. I see no reason to change now as they have gotten more political. They can all go bankrupt as far as I am concerned.
Would you have liked to go fly-fishing in the Adirondacks with Winslow Homer? For sure I would, despite total lack of interest in fishing. I would just loll around watching the action, like the implied action in this painting; the colors; the sparkly light; the beautiful lines of the canoe. The bright white hat does imply blackfly season, though. Would he have been so foolish as to go up there during blackfly season? Maybe it was just somebody’s favorite hat.... [Read More]

If you watch only the first part of this video, you will enjoy it but the kicker comes at the end. He talks about his family. For the record:
He is considered to be the all-time leading scorer in the history of basketball, with 49,737 career points scored (club play, plus national team play combined). He is also a record holder for the longest career span of a professional basketball player, and the top scorer in the history of the Summer Olympic Games.... [Read More]

Even though my Seattle Seahawks did not make it to this year’s Super Bowl, I will nevertheless have a team to root for. That will be the Kansas City Chiefs. And the primary reason? They are quarterbacked by the great Patrick Lavon Mahomes II, fellow alumnus of Texas Tech University!

The college football postseason has finally arrived! Beginning this Friday, December 20, 2019, teams from coast-to-coast and border-to-border will face off for championship glory. I wish my Texas Tech Red Raiders were playing, but they have not played in a bowl since 2017 and haven’t had the pleasure of winning one since 2013. But at least Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars are playing the Air Force Falcons in the Cheez-It Bowl. Go Cougs!
So, what teams will you all be rooting for over the holidays? Good luck to all, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and keep calm and cheer on! 🎄 😎 📣... [Read More]
