Happy non-official Holiday!

As I wrestled through the aisles of my local Fortune 500 grocers, I was reminded how today is the most holiday-like of non-holidays.

Super Bowl Firsts – Group Participation

Here we have it – twelve days (296 hours but who’s counting) before the champion of the NFL is crowned. The one good thing about the extra week is all the classic video footage of Super Bowls past. The old films provide an opportunity to reminisce. I am looking for the help of the Clipboard […]

I Don’t Believe What I Just Saw!

I can see it now, the new NFL Network commercial. It pans to a diner and instead of Joe Montana cooking, it’s Tiki Barber. The two guys sitting at the counter are looking at the menu when they look up and say: ” So Tiki, help us out. How does crow taste? ” Enough said.. […]
