Weird Items that only Interest Me

Good Things to Come out of the NFL Season
Another NFL season has come and gone and the Rams are picking second in the upcoming NFL draft... AGAIN.    I can only assume that their new coach will be a future hall of famer and the team will dump Richie Incognito all of their dead weight and go to the playoffs next year.   But the NFL season did provide some enjoyment...... namely neither Dallas nor the Patriots made the playoffs and the Rams did manage to win their lone home game of the year against the Cowboys.  


"Maybe if I do not look behind me, the spector of death will go back to his owner's box."                                                                   "Man, winning is harder when you can no longer video tape teams' walk thoughs"

Memo to Dallas Cowboy fans:
Unless you are a 9 year old girl, you should NOT wear facepaint when you visit other teams' stadiums.    You will be mocked and end up sitting glummly through the games like these two fans.

Fan 1:   "I told you we should not get our faces painted."
Fan 2:   "Just don't move and maybe no one will notice...... hey, was that a camera click I heard?"

Cubs lose, Cubs lose, Cubs lose
In a development that will come as a surprise to no one, the Cubs failed to win in the preseason once again.  The Cubs are now 9-22 in postseason play since 1984. They're 0-6 the last two years. They're 18-50 since they last won a World Series in 1908.    That is correct, 100 years since their last world series.   You would think by accident that they would win a world series now and then.

One would almost be tempted to feel sorry for them, except for their drunk, idiot fan base who thinks the entire world is rooting for them.   Here is a hint, NO ONE LIKES YOU OR YOUR LOSER TEAM. 


                  A Cubs fan realizes his life really is pointless.                                           Lou Pinella displaying his maturity and leadership                        Lou getting his lobotomy             Cubs logo for next season, and the next, and the next.... 

I am sure that the cubbie faithful do not mind in the least that they are out of the playoffs and their nearby rivals the Brewers managed to actually win a game before losing.   Those Milwaukee shirt untucking heros will have a long time before they make the playoffs again after trading all their top prospects for "rent a players".   I wonder if the long wait since the last time they made the playoffs (1982) was enjoyable.


 Brewers fans enjoying the High Life, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and songs by "Asia" on the jukebox while they lose                                                     What the same fans will look like the NEXT time the Brewers ever make the playoffs.

Meet the Parents
When going back home to St. Louis for a visit with the family or for a Ram's home game, it is always good to see what the parents are up to.   Mine SEEM normal on the surface, but if you did a little bit deeper, you see things that even Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld could not imagine.  

As you can see below, my mom is very much interested in protecting the earth's precious environment.   She even vacuums the front driveway to ensure a clean earth.   I dare say that she would make even Al Gore jealous.

My mom's skills are not only limited to keeping the driveway clean and tidy, she also has mad sewing skills as shown below.   She is not tied down to the old school of thinking that the thread must be the same color as the garment being sewn.   A brown thread on a prized casino white shirt works out just fine.   In fact, even Jame Gumb of "Silence of the Lambs" fame would kill to have skills like that. 

   "Why don't the neighbors clean their driveways?"                                 "Even I would not go that far."                     "But, if I did not repair this one, I would only have 1000 left."        "But cotton is easier to sew than skin, no fair."







My dad also has some, previously, undocumented skills.    Apparently in one of his prior lives, he drew up detailed battle plans for the confederate army.

The first picture listed below is the confederate army's battle plan for the Battle of Shiloh.  Generals Johnston and Beauregard drew up a detailed battle plan for attacks on several of General Grant's positions.

The middle photo is my dad's current plan of attack on
Imo's Pizza locations in the St. Charles area.   Apparently General Delivery will swoop down from the north and attack the Elm Street encampment while General Carry Out sends half his men in a pincher movement on the Elm Street troops while the bulk of his force attacks the 1st Capital drive base.   General Dine-In's men are held in reserve.

Of course, he DOES make excellant gin and tonics, so we can overlook his hidden confederate past.

              His earlier work was crude, but effective                                       The 21st Century has brought color to his battle plans                                       The master of the gin and tonic hard at work

Family of faggot fans fly the flag
The Doody family 
The Doody family hope to raise profile of faggots

"A West Midlands family is play a centrol role int he quest to raise the profiel fo a forgotten British dish - faggots.    The Doody family from Wolverhampton has been crowned The Faggot Family in a national competition, and to kick off their reign, they will launch National Faggot Week.    The family will be touring the country extollng the virtures of the dish, which is best-known for its links with the Black Country."

I can only pray that the son never goes to high school in the US and someone sees this picture of him wearing his "Faggot Family" sash.

A Rolling Truck DOES Gather Moss


When one thinks of NASCAR, what is the first thing that comes to mind?   Guys with t-shirts with Dale Earnhardt "3" on them, coolers full of beer, 200,000 jam-packed fans?   No, you think of Randy Moss.   Yes, THAT Randy Moss has just become owner of a Nascar Truck Racing team.   Naturally, the Truck's number will be changed to 81 to match his uniform number.    No word yet if this will force Terrell Owens to buy his own racing team to keep up with headlines.  

Mein Got Im Himmell!
Sometimes actors get typecasted in certain roles and we can never picture them in any other type of roll.   James Cagney as a mobster, Adam West as Batman, George Reeves as Superman, etc.  





The below actor was certainly a victim of typecasting in his Hollywood career.    The below photos were taken as screen tests while still a young actor in Europe.   Click the picture below to learn who one is of the most unlikely actors ever to appear as Jesus Christ.

Upcoming Events:   2008 NFL Draft
The best time of year is almost at hand...... the baseball season is starting, the NHL and NBA are starting their playoffs and the NFL is about to hold their annual NFL draft.   Naturally, this is an excuse to invite some friends over, fire up the grill, chill the beer and yell at ESPN's Chris Berman to shut the hell up.   Time also to find out if your team drafted a future Hall of Famer or a future guest of the Federal prison system

Bad Ways To Start Out The Baseball Season
, Fla. — With time running out, the Astros are preparing to begin the season without second baseman Kaz Matsui.  Matsui, 32, underwent surgery Monday to repair an anal fissure and will begin the season on the disabled list, team officials said.  Expected recovery time for Matsui is two to three weeks. He originally was expected to miss two weeks.

When Bad Things Happen to Pond Scum





The next best thing to your team winning the Super Bowl is watching the smug New England Patriots and their equally smug head coach Bill Belichick lose.

(The coach is wondering, "Is it possible to look even more like a loser and a jerk?   No?   Then I am good".)

Now comes word that the spying and secret filming they got busted for in week one may just be the tip of the iceberg.    One of their ex-assistants claims that they also taped the St. Louis Rams' walk thru the day before Super Bowl 36.    Gee, I wonder if knowing what plays and what formations the other team was running would be a benefit?    The NFL commish has finally been embarassed by the negative press and congressional pressure into actually doing more of an investigation that asking the Patriots if they are big cheaters.   The commish actually said with a straight face that they heard about these illegal taping rumors, but they asked the Patriots and they said they did not do it.    I mean, if you cannot trust the bad guys to confess, how can you EVER find out the truth.   Nothing can give Super Bowl 36 back to the Rams, but seeing the Patriots having the title stripped and Belichick suspended would be almost as sweet.   

Speaking of football, if you are patiently waiting for the NFL Draft on April 26th and 27th, here is a link to several mock NFL drafts that will give you hours of work-shirking entertainment.



Happy 2008, or as most of the world knows it, "Year of the Rat".  While most of the western world does not care for rats (something about launching the Black Death in Europe..... man we sure can hold a grudge), rats are considered a symbol of good luck and wealth in both China and Japan.   And this can be your answer to whenever you think "what the heck is the deal with the Japanese and Chinese?"   Oh yeah, they like rats.  
 Although, to be fair, Disney thinks rats make excellent French chefs, so what do I know?   

Good Stories of the Year:
Another sign of the apocalypse (you know, beside the sign that states "Baldwin brothers can still get parts in hollywood movies") is the Missouri football team actually being good.    Mizzou finished the season 12-2 after beating Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl 38-7.   And Missouri's running back did not need a "loaner" Escalade to make it to the game.  

After year of struggling, being 12-2 and playing in the Cotton Bowl, a "real"  bowl (If my comments offended anyone associated with the "Gaylord Hotels Music City" or the "San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia" bowls, I appologize that your bowls suck  that my comments may have hurt you) on New Years day is amazing.    Colorado did not cheat and get a 5th down that was approved by Promise Keepers around the world?   Nebraska did not try and run up the score on the Tigers?   Well, maybe they did and 6 points counts as "running up the score" in Nebraska these days. 

Next season the Tigers will start the season ranked number 5 in the nation.  

                                                                                                                (Typical Arkansas Fan, except he looks kinda sober)


Bad Stories of the Year:
Heading into the 2007 season, I was sure the Rams could win 10 or 11 games coming off of their strong finish to the 2006 season.   Playoffs would surely follow.

When the Rams lost two offensive linemen for the season in the first game of the year, things started to downhill rapidly.   3-13?   Ugh, well at least this means they will fire their coach and try to get Bill Cowher to come to St. Louis.   Oh wait, the Ram's president John Shaw wants to give Linehan another year.  Huh?    Not to say that the players have given up on the coach, but check out Torry Holt's "overwhelming endorsement"


"Yeah, I would say he has the confidence of the offense," Holt said. "That's all we got. We don't have nothing else. That's who we have to work with on a day-to-day basis. I would say he has the confidence of the guys.

"Now is it overflowing confidence? I don't know. But I think guys have some confidence in him and some respect for coach."

Wow, I have heard nicer things said about Ted Bundy.   Oh well, with the number two pick in the NFL draft  on April 26th, things have got to get better in 2008.

St. Louis Rams: Schedule 2007  -  Hmmm, looks like my prediction of 11-5 was a "bit" off.

Random Thought of the Day

White Castle Burgers  have to be the best fast food known to man.   However, much like Mel Gibson trying to do "Hamlet", one should know their own limitations.   On their site they have a "recipes" link and almost every recipe starts with "take 12 white castles and tear them into pieces".  I cannot imagine any other fast food site instructing people to rip up their food, but here we are.

Listed below is one particularly gruesome feast appropriately called "Breakfast Surprise".   If I were ever served this, "surprise" would not be the first word that would come to mind.   Even the
English would know better than to make this.

Breakfast Surprise
12 White Castle® hamburgers
7 to 8 slices English muffin toasting bread
1 lb. ham
1/2 to 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
2 1/4 cups milk
3 eggs
1 stick butter

In buttered 9 x 13-inch pan, layer the bottom with burgers without the tops of the buns. Cube the English muffin toasting bread, the ham, and the sharp cheddar cheese. Mix milk and eggs. Pour mixture over the cubed items, which have been put on top of the hamburgers. Melt one stick of butter and pour over all. Bake for 1 hour at 350°F.

* Not approved by the American Heart council or really, by anyone of the human race *

Although, to be fair, at least the above recipe appears to have had some effort put into it.    I am not saying that their 2001 recipe contest was a lightly entered affair, however THIS was actually a recipe that made it to the finals.   I shudder to think what recipes were rejected.

Open-Faced Castles
10 White Castle hamburgers, no pickles *
2 pkgs. brown gravy mix
1/2 envelope Lipton onion soup mix
5 cups instant mashed potatoes

Prepare mashed potatoes as directed on box. Cook gravy as directed on package; add the 1/2 package soup mix and simmer 5 minutes. Slice hamburgers diagonally, and place 4 halves on plate with opening in center. Place 1 cup instant mashed potatoes in center. Ladle brown gravy over top. Serves 5.

* Ah yes, "no pickles".   I guess pickles would have offset the delicate balance of flavors this recipe achieves.
