“putting a disabled baby up for adoption”

This was listed as a search term used to find my site.  If you are looking at my site at all, please know that I’m praying for you or whoever it is that is debating this.

3.5

September 18, 2007

So, the Red Sox are going to give the division to the Yankees.  The Yankees have been unstoppable of late, and at the right time of the season.  How can you go from a 14.5 lead to a 3.5 lead?  With about 12 games left, this is definitely going to come down to the wire, but I think the Sox will find a way to blow it.

Manny has been on a vacation all month, it seems.  I sure wish I could do the same, but you see, I have drag my butt out of my bed every morning so I can provide food for my family.  Without his bat, we are forced to put in some rookies and a lousy hitter.

Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel as if the season is over in a week.

WordPress Lost My Image Header

I looked at my header today and noticed that it looked more boring then usual.  For some reason, my image header was missing.  It is back up now, but I somehow feel violated…picture was taken by your’s truly.

Chargers – Shut Down Like Momma’s Prohibition Era Bartap

September 17, 2007

Critics left and right (including myself) were shut up after last nights routing of the San Diego Chargers.  LTjr was beat around like a stretch armstrong doll getting handled by a couple 5 year old boys.  What a game played by Tom Brady and company.

Hopefully the doubters will see just how talented this team is and give them credit.  If not, that is okay too, because I believe the critics simply fanned the fire of the New England Patriots.   They’ve quieted me down.

The magic number is down to 9.  Should have been down to 7.  Schilling pitched quite a game last night, but the mismanagement of Tito left us watching Captain Jeter take the game ball home.  Clemens seemed to be like the old Clemens last night with a only a few hits allowed after 7 innings of play.  I really thought this was the game for the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are leaving me in sweats as usual.  Can’t wait for the season to finally be over just so my pulse rate average goes back down below 80 bpm.  Odds are saying to bet on the Red Sox to win the division, the Yankees the Wild Card.  We’ll see.  I am not putting my money anywhere yet.  This whole season has been best titled with the phrase, “It is too early to tell.”  Seems like it will be too early to tell for another week.

Beckett pitched a gem on Saturday, and with the 10-1 routing, the Sox actually scored more runs total the entire weekend then the Yankees.  Beckett should  be a shoo-in for the Cy Young Award, and he’ll lock it up once he gains his 20th this week.

All in all, not a total loss for the Red Sox this weekend.  Losing 1 is better then losing 3.  Friday should have been ours, but time to look forward to the playoffs.

I’m Disappointed, Beli

September 13, 2007

I am disappointed in Belichick. I am a long time Pats fan, and now have to hide my tee shirts.

Now plenty will wonder if he cheated during those awesome Super Bowl runs. I hope not, but there will always be that “what if” thought in my head when looking back. Probably not during the first Bowl (playing a third string QB with little chance of winning). Maybe during the last one.

I would like an honest explanation from him as to why he felt this was necessary. Even though spying on signs is nothing new (and the technique Beli chose to use is probably nothing new either), he cheated and tarnished the image of the New England Patriots.

The punishment? Maybe the commissioner would have the best interests of the NFL if he were to ban Belichick from football for the rest of the season. Harsh? Maybe, but this is a sport after all, and cheating should be strictly enforced. I would bet that a coach doing the same on a third rate high school football team would be fired.

The NFL has maintained a level of excellence and professionalism that other sports have aimed for. The NBA? Referee caught gambling (and he is probably not the only one). Some of those draft lotteries have left me to wonder how fixed the NBA is (watch the draft pick for Ewing). The MLB? Steroids are leaking out of DH’s sweat glands. The NHL? They strike every other year it seems, though the NHL deserves to be as highly acclaimed as the NFL.

If the NFL simply slaps the wrist of Belichick, they will only embolden others to create newer ways of cheating, realizing that the repercussions are tiny.

I believe Beli has an uncanny ability at coaching. He didn’t need to cheat. He shouldn’t have cheated. The talent is so stacked on his team, that the prospect of cheating should have never been a thought.

Oh well, at least David Ortiz gave New England a reason to smile. Big Papi!

The Stories of the Victims

September 11, 2007

I haven’t forgotten that most devastating day. I won’t forget. I can’t forget. Please takes sometime to read the story of the Hanson family, including 2 year old Christine. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends whose lives forever changed on September 11, 2001.

The American Ideal Versus the Present Day American Government

September 7, 2007

Thomas Jefferson, one of the premiere founders of the United States, said it best,”Nothing… is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man.”

Like his contemporaries of that time, he understood the rights that are reserved for mankind. As an example of which should be of concern to us as American Citizens today, James Madison stated, “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.

The US Government is now afraid to trust citizens with arms. Today, a person needs to jump through so many loopholes before being permitted the use of his weapon. The Constitution means nothing when you cannot even carry a concealed weapon in some states without proper authorization.

Another concern I have noticed, is that we as Americans, are demanding security while compromising liberty. This is exactly what the founders of our nation spoke against. Without liberty, we have no security. Plenty are compromising everything we fought for in the Revolutionary War because of their fear of terrorism.

Am I unpatriotic because I think the current government is filled with criminals seeking only to take our liberties away while expanding the unconstitutional American Empire? Has my allegiance with the American Ideal been broken because I do not support the War on Terror? And because I oppose unlawful acts like the Real ID and Patriot Act? Whatever happened to the sense of independence Americans historically held?

We as Americans have grown so lazy and soft. Is our liberty worth it? We don’t have freedom anymore. What we have is a pathetic government with an agenda to expand world wide unification. When we as a majority decry the war in Iraq, why does the government continue to sacrifice our soldiers for this costly war? The government does not care about you as an individual, nor us as a majority.

Is it time for a revolution? I do not stand in support of the US government. I stand and support the American Ideal. The ideal that gives all citizens of the USA freedom without compromise. I am not betraying anyone. It is the critics of people like myself that are the traitors, the tories.

Time for a change. Time to get back to the basics. Time is almost up.

Made In China

September 6, 2007

Because of sheer boredom today, and because I have a young child with a bunch of Made in China toys, I became a little inspired using MS Paint.

Toxic Waste Made in China

Yes, I have checked her toys, so far we’re ok.

Idiots Speeding

September 5, 2007

I live on a 1 way street with a high traffic volume. The speed limit is 25 MPH. Unfortunately, most that drive through, drive at 40 or higher. Understand, this is a narrow 1 way street with a ton of small houses stacked close together. Despite the two speed humps on the other end of the street, most people pick up momentum well before them and get enough air that they confuse the Newark Air Traffic Control Specialists.

I have a daughter. She is a curious little girl. She is only a year old.  I love her and will do anything to protect her.

I have an idea.

I will sit behind my bushes with an old doll and some rotten tomatoes stuffed into the toy’s clothing. When a car is obviously racing past, I will simply toss the old doll in front of the car’s bumper. Hilarity will ensue.
