I would have to say I like the Patriots’ Cam Newton signing. If he can stay on the field (I guess he has to get there first) I think he is an improvement over Hoyer and Stidham.

Any true bourbon connoisseur will tell you that bourdon mixed with anything is an insult to the bourbon. Now, while I wholeheartedly agree, I will also say that on a hot, sunny, summer’s afternoon there are few drinks as refreshing as an ice cold bourbon and coke.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Fedex has asked Dan Snyder and the Washington Redskins to change their name, federal officials have asked the same and Nike has pulled all of its Redskins’ gear from its shelves.

Weather is such a mindset. Perfect example: A 60-day is a 60-day. Why does it have to be so much more enjoyed in January than it is in June?

I’ll believe professional sports are returning when I see it for myself. Players/staff/personnel are coming down with the virus left and right while some players are opting out of playing out the upcoming season (all sports). Still a long ways to go. 

The word “POLITICS” is derived from the word “poly’ meaning ‘many’ and ‘ticks’ meaning ‘blood sucking parasites”.

“And I keep fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you’re dead you can’t
But I’d rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

So as sure as the sun will shine
I’m gonna get my share now, what’s mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all”

– Jimmy Cliff
