I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!

You've got it all. Power, passion, precision, and style. You're sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you're expensive and high-maintenance, but you're worth it.

Wonder Why the Country is So Polarized?

Read this. I can't help but post the first graf here:

I was watching the committee vote on TV this morning, listening to Democrats give their absurd reasons for opposing Alito and it suddenly occured to me that the Democratic Party was offering a universal insult to all Catholics of a conservative bent...

What about the 22 Democrats who voted for the current Catholic Chief Justice John Roberts?

Just a little research is all we ask before the diarrhetic tripe starts oozing from your keyboard.

Well at least the 2nd half. Scroll down for newer posts...

8:17 PM EST - A huge congrats to the Steelers for showing the Country who the real Jake Plummer is. Ben Rothlesburger knows how to do an interview, as Nuke LaLoosh learned:

1- Credit teammates
2- Happy with the way the TEAM played
3- Credit opposition for geing tough

Textbook and no bulletin board material.

8:25 - Did you hear? American Idol is back on.

8:28 - Delhomme looked like shite in the first half.

8:29 - If I'm Holmgren, I'm hugely pissed at the non-call on the punt return for a TD by Smith. The ref (with the arms like Vasiliy Alekseyev) had the mic on ready to make the call, and then they picked the flag up. Crap.

8:32 - Panthers 62 yards in the 1st Half. Stinky.

8:34 - The only reason I'm rooting for the Seahawks is that they have two Penn State WRs. Engram and Jurevicius.

8:37 - TD Seahawks. Jackson from Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck is having a great game. Panthers down by 20.

8:39 - It's not raining in Seattle.

8:40 - Rod Smart is returning kicks for Carolina. You may remember him as He Hate Me in the XFL.

8:43 - Delhomme looks like the guy from Lord of the Dance in the pocket. Happy feet.

8:45 - Is Subway so hurting that they still need Jared as a spokeman? He was on the set of the CBS Subway halftime show last week. Funny.

8:48 - Seahawks have the ball again. With the way their D is playing, if the punch it in, it's over.

8:55 - Troy Aikman is an adequate analyst. Joe Buck should be calling Division III field hockey.

8:59 - Nike commercials rarely disappoint. I think Weiden & Kennedy still do them.

9:01 - Did I say stinky? Delhomme's QB rating with 3:24 left in the third: 1.6

9:04 - Carolina: One time-out left. Guh.

9:12 - Delhomme with another pick. What's the lowest passer rating ever?

9:15 - Aikman just said the Panthers are going through the motions. Funny.

9:20 - Great name: Lofa Tatupu

9:24 - I guess it's not my imagination that we're seeing more car ads on TV from Nissan, Toyota and their Asian ilk, in light of the fact that US car companies are in such trouble. Ford will be announcing major lay-offs tomorrow.

9:28 - What's up with all of the cutaways to Steve Smith?

9:32 - The world needs ditch diggers too. 'Hawks 34 Carolina 7

9:37 - Blast from the past: Jim Zorn is Seattle's QB coach.

9:40 - Carter with a TD catch for Carolina. Funny thing is, I think he kept the ball.
Flash forward 30 years...
Carter showing his grandkids the ball, "Grandpa caught this ball for a TD in the NFC Championship Game the year the Steelers won their 4th Super Bowl."
Middle Grandchild asks, "Did you win the game?"
Grandpa Carter, "Go to your room!"

9:49 - Two minute warning. Look for the stories tomorrow about Delhomme being sick during the game.

9:50 - Headline tomorrow in Raleigh: Panthers Crap Bed

9:52 - Joe Buck is an amateur. He just said, "What about the importance of the home field advantage?" What about the Steelers? They won three road games to go to the bowl. Moron.

9:55 - That's it. The Seahawks are going to the Bowl for the first time in their history.

9:55:30 - It would've been nice if the Panthers hadn't missed their flight into Seattle.

9:56 - Do you think Ichiro will go to Detroit for the big game?

10:00 - The President is a fucking liar.

10:00:10 - Just want to make sure you're still awake.

10:03 - I don't get auto racing at all.

10:05 - Host JB with the "Sleepless in Seattle" joke. Clever!

10:05 - Microsoft Biggie Paul Allen is the owner of the Seahawks and before presenting the Halas trophy, Terry Bradshaw asked if he could help him with his email.

10:13 - You've been great. Enjoy the haggis.

I meant to post on this last night, but was too tired after posting. (The pic is from my mobile.) We had family over for a late gift exchange, wine, dinner & laughter. We made the lasagna together and it was delicious. The eldest Horns' plate was marred before he could take a bite. The indentation on the lasagna, pictured above, is from the cat who bounded across the table just as we were sitting down.

The closest I've ever come to 'Cat Blogging'. Enjoy.

Bush & Abramoff Connection

Holy Crap!

Four months after he took the oath of office in 2001, President George W. Bush was the attraction, and the White House the venue, for a fundraiser organized by the alleged perpetrator of the largest billing fraud in the history of corporate lobbying. In May 2001, Jack Abramoff’s lobbying client book was worth $4.1 million in annual billing for the Greenberg Traurig law firm. He was a friend of Bush advisor Karl Rove. He was a Bush “Pioneer,” delivering at least $100,000 in bundled contributions to the 2000 campaign. He had just concluded his work on the Bush Transition Team as an advisor to the Department of the Interior. He had sent his personal assistant Susan Ralston to the White House to work as Rove’s personal assistant. He was a close friend, advisor, and high-dollar fundraiser for the most powerful man in Congress, Tom DeLay. Abramoff was so closely tied to the Bush Administration that he could, and did, charge two of his clients $25,000 for a White House lunch date and a meeting with the President. From the same two clients he took to the White House in May 2001, Abramoff also obtained $2.5 million in contributions for a non-profit foundation he and his wife operated...

That may well be blood in the water.

No Introduction Necessary

It's not every day that I get to pull a story from the Komsomolskaya Pravda.

A 35-year-old tractor operator, Igor Namyatov, has undergone surgery to be relieved of what had initially been diagnosed as a tumor, but turned out to be the embryo of his unborn twin brother, the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily reported Monday.

Doctors said the embryo belonged to Namyatov’s unborn brother who had spent 35 years in the body of the patient.

Namyatov’s fellow villagers doubted the explanation given by the doctors. Some even surmised the object removed from Namyatov’s body was an extraterrestrial organism. “It is a pity they have removed it. They should have waited to see what would become of it later on. That would have been a great scientific find,” one of the villagers said...

Quite a Week in the Parking Lot

First, Wednesday night one of my co-workers had an arrow shot into the bumper of his car.

This morning we had a little excitement as well. There is a very steep hill above the parking lot next to our building. As you can see, there is a dead tree...

The tree was cut down several weekends ago. Around 10:30am this morning our maintenance man climbed the hill with a chainsaw to dismember said tree. His first mistake was starting to cut the tree from the uphill side. I was walking up the parking lot as he was working his way through the trunk. Just as I passed him he made it all the way through and the log landed on the ground about 25 feet above the parking lot (and the red car)...

Predictably, the log started rolling. Downhill. At almost exactly the same moment our maintenance man let out a wail that would be best described as the cry of a man who sees the water rising after clogging the toilet in the home of his new girlfriend's parents. I think it was at this point that he realized what was about to happen...

Moral: Don't stand on an incline while cutting a round log from the uphill side above a full parking lot at 10:30am on a Friday morning.

Hunting Near the Schuylkill Expressway

I'm leaving work last night and my buddy is in the parking lot talking to a police officer. I stopped to find out what happened and he showed me his car...

Yes that's an arrow sticking out of the bumper of his car. We have a cemetery up the hill behind our office and the officer said that some people hunt deer there sometimes. Makes me want to not work late anymore.

Orange Bowl: Final Play

My buddy took this picture from Section 413 of the Orange Bowl at about 1:15am on Tuesday night. Redeemed Penn State kicker Kevin Kelly is number 23.

The game was as exciting as it looked on TV.

Some thoughts:

-The Dolphins Stadium parking situation is a nightmare. The Rte 95 exit opens right into the lot. Forget changing lanes. It didn't help our driver took two different wrong turns getting there, with the stadium in sight.

-The Dolphins Stadium port-a-potty situation was a bigger nightmare. We found only two "stalls" within easy walking distance of our tailgate. (Which was about 3/4 mile from the stadium.)

-The stadium was at least 60% filled with PSU fans. All loud. Mostly white clad.

-The stadium announcer must have been 130 years old and very annoying.

-The Seminoles are a talented football team.

-The Seminoles are a dirty football team. 13 Penalties for 129 yards, of which at least five were personal fouls. Not to mention the away from the ball stuff that wasn't called. The Seminoles trying to draw a penalty by a shove/block after the whistle.

-The Seminole fans need help on their smack talk.

-The Seminole pep band were very good. Large too.

We stayed in Fort Lauderdale and enjoyed wonderful weather, numerous Primanti Bros. sandwiches and the occasional adult beverage. A great trip.
