Yes, that's right, start Tatum Bell this weekend! You know you drafted him 4 rounds to early, or did you? Three years ago I had a certain Clinton Portis who sat waiting for his chance to shine behind worthless Mike Anderson. Well maybe not worthless, but you throw Ron Dayne in for 20 carries in a system like Denvers against the Chiefs and I bet you he would have run off more than 98 yards. Anderson only managed 54 yards on 19 carries if you take away his 44 yard jaunt into the end zone, that's only a 2.8 yard per carry average, that sucks. Now take Tatum Bell, he had five carries for 47 yards, a 9.4 yard average. "What about the long run he had?" Okay, take away Tatum's 24 yard run, he was still averaging 5.75 yards per carry. What does this mean? It means Mike Anderson is going to get stuffed early and often this weekend against the Jags. Mike Shanahan will pull the bastard, or he'll get injured, and in will come Tatum Bell, and he will finish the game, he will get a TD, and he will become Denvers starting RB. No more RBBC bullshit.
I know the prognosticators are saying that you shouldn't start anyone from Denver against the Jags run D, but trust me, when Mike Anderson gets stuffed he'll be pulled for Bell, and if Bell is any good he'll be in for the rest of the game. You do think Bell will make the most of his opportunity, don't you? I mean why else would you draft the guy in the third round you moron! If he sucks you'll see Ron Dayne on the field, no good can come of that. Tatum Bell is the most talented back they have, and Shanahan, as much as every Fantasy owner hates him, always ends up using the best back.

Or maybe they're not barren, maybe they have a Guinness beer sign, or a poster of something, you know, like everyone else. You might even have a poster of a nice famous painting, maybe a Van Gogh or a Monet, but don't you want some real paintings on those walls? The reason I ask is because I did for a long time, but every time I saw something on a wall hanging at some joint, even if I thought it sucked, it was for like $500. Who would spend $500 on crap like that? So then I looked online for some guides to buying art, all I found was that cheap art is under $1000. That's not cheap.
I decided to check out some art galleries, and I found one in
"Return Voyage" I can't remember). It turns out one painting is by a painter named Burnett (not pictured yet). Burnett painted
Our fourth painting purchase was on Ebay. It was the most fearsome, but ultimately the best of the four. The painting is of the

Could a drunk Bush do any worse then a sober Bush?
Bush is hitting the liquor cabinet again, just like when he was a teenager, or a Yale student, or an oil industry insider, or an owner of the Texas Rangers, well you get the picture. Here is the article if you want to find out more. It's based on an Enquirer report, but as far as things ringing true or hollow, this one is no doubt about it true. I also think the Enquirer is a bit more careful when it comes to Dubya, you don't want to get sued for libel by the leader of the free world.
So does this surprise anyone? If anyone has ever been to an AA or NA meeting, everyone knows you're an alcoholic forever. Dubya was, is and always will be an alcoholic, he may have been a recovering alcoholic after he "found" the Church, but now he is back to being the miserable drunk he has always been.
You know how Dubya always makes it seem like he has this "strong" character? What a bunch of bullshit, drunks don't have strong character. If they had strong character they wouldn't be drunks, now would they? They would overcome their desire or need for the booze, or they could do what most people do, drink responsibly. I mean the problem with Dubya isn't that he'll drink a shot of Wild Turkey, it's that he'll drink the whole bottle after he takes that shot.
Now the real question is this: are you scared, happy or disappointed? I'm sure the 74% of republicans who still feel Bush is doing a "good" job would say "silly" and claim it isn't true (but how about those 16% of Democrats who think he is doing a good job, that's bullshit if I ever heard it in any poll, no Democrat feels Bush is doing a good job, they don't fucking EXIST!!!), but I don't care about those nitwits. My guess is Liberals will mostly say "scared! Look who has the finger on the nuclear button", but that's bullshit. I know Bush is going to be kept away from the public during his drunkenness, but could a drunk Bush do any worse then a sober Bush? I don't think so. So the REAL feeling is happiness, this hollow, shallow, miserable, worthless piece of crap we have for a President is finally hitting rock bottom. We have our redemption, what we said would happen HAS happened (how about those assholes in 2000 that said "well, Gore and Bush are like, the same, so I'm going to vote for Nader", I almost got into fistfights over that), now we can have a little solace while watching the country fall apart.
I've noticed a disturbing trend on peoples websites or blogs, it's the "Sorry to have not updated my site in so long, but I'll get to it" language. The problem here is that these people actually think someone CARES whether they have been up to date on the website or blog they keep. So let me enlighten them, no one cares!!! The biggest problem with this statement is that it is a lie, we know the damn website or blog won't get updated because the statement was written in February of 2003 or something. Or it's a blog, and you can see that someone diligently made entries everyday, then the person starts apologizing for missing a few days (am I missing something? what rule states you MUST write something in your blog everyday?), the days turn into weeks, months, and now we see the last entry was a year ago. So I won't treat anyone to the same indignity, when I get tired of this shit I'll stop and I won't utter a word when I return about how "sorry" I am to have missed a week.
Oh, and sorry for not posting anything for a few days. Sike! (has that word left our common vernacular? It was VERY popular in my High School days, but it usually involved punching)

For those that don't remember, Steve Dahl used to be cool. He authored the infamous Disco Demolition Night in Chicago, if only I could have been there! Actually, when I think about it, I was only two at the time, so it would have sucked for me and I probably would have shit my diapers, but I digress. Steve had a show with Gary Meier, it was called (you guessed it!) Steve & Gary, and it was really funny because Steve was always drunk and he was actually funny when he was wasted off his ass. He then decided to sober up, put on a couple hundred pounds and suck up the afternoons in Chicago.
This was during my high school days, the days when radio was cool, I am referring to the early 90's. We had JB, Kevin Mathews, Steve & Gary, it was good. Now radio sucks. I have NO ONE to listen to in the mornings. At least at noon I have Al Franken, but what about mornings? Mancow is and always has been a fraud, I never cared for Howard Stern (slapping a stripper on the ass with a fish, okay, so that was funny), Mike North is stupid, Jerry Springer is AWFUL, it's all bad. I've resorted to NPR, but give me JB! Once again, I digress.
The point I was making was, I think, that some people can ruin a good thing by being people you hate. The following people ruin all sorts of things for me: Dubya ruins America for me, Limbaugh ruins good debate, Dusty Baker (I hate that piece of crap) makes it impossible for me to root for the Cubbies, Barry Bonds made me hate the achievements of Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire, and of course that rotten Edward Moskal made the PNA dead to me.
So I live in a Condominium and we have our assessments due the same day each month. In the past 14 months I have been late by one day twice, but nonetheless I get this bullshit late fee, which under the "rules" I deserve. The guy that doles out the late fees is my next door neighbor and acts as if he is a "friend", he is pretty damn anal about it all. Though I have to question whether a "friend" shouldn't first come up to you and say "hey, come up with the assessment money or I have to give you a late fee under these damn rules". So I guess he isn't a friend, I would never give MY friend a late fee.
The beauty of the whole thing is that this guy is breaking the rules himself, you see his front door is barricaded by what has become his personal shoe closet. It's really a hallway, but he acts like it's an IKEA wardrobe for shoes. He has a chair, a big ole rubber mat, and not less then ten pairs of shoes on that damn mat. Granted, I don't really give a damn what people put out in front of the units, but a shitload of shoes? Plus it really pisses my wife off. To boot (pun intended) it is against the rules of the condo we live in. So since my "friend" feels it is okay to dole out late fees for being one day late I feel okay with what I'm going to do. I'm going to do the same thing he does to me every time I'm late with an assessment, I'm going to slip a note under his door, it's going to say "Get Your Damn Shoes Out of the Hallway!" Then I'll throw in a fee for breaking the Condo rules. How do you like them apples?

I'm curious, as I'm sure most of you are NOT, whether Jonathon Brandmeier, also known as Johnny B and most recently heard out in LaLa land, will finally get his ass BACK to Chi-town. Rumor has it he will be on WLUP 97.9, the station from his heyday. That would be nice, I'm waiting for the eagle to land, but while you're waiting check out Johnny B's site, it has to suffice before he returns. Oh, and will Buzz dump the fat whale and return to Johnny's show?
