Congrats to Clemson on National Championship!

The last 7 National Champions before last night:

Bama (4)
Ohio St

Clemson beat them ALL this season.

Clemson is the only team to beat Bama in 27 games. A rematch of last years game with the team ranked number two winning both games. Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant’s record safe (for now). It was a great game (just like last year). We didn’t lose, we got beat. Lane Kiffin wouldn’t have made any difference. Dabo is still a stupid name (even if he did play for Bama).

Roll Tide Roll.

Dis just not true when Sal and I get together

I find this headline disturbing. A cultural phenomena is apparently being lost to the ravages of time and proper English. Da Bears (suck).

Not an obit: RIP Carson, O’Malley, Huckabee, Fiorina, Kasich and hope

It is time to turn this blog back into a political machine. Instead of obituaries of Rock Stars and iconic figures from our youth, we turn to politics as usual following the Iowa caucuses.

Iowa has spoken. It’s a virtual tie for the democrats. Bernie pulled off a stunner against Hilleroid. It has got to sting and feel a little like 2008. That was when Barry Obama started to become a pain in Hilleroid’s rear. The fact that Bern got half and she got half leaves O’Malley (the most presidential looking of the bunch) making his exit. He is likely to return as a running mate…

Iowa has spoken and they got it dead wrong. Cruz? Ted fucking Cruz? Wow Iowa. Just wow. I liked Trump’s comments this morning. I like that Rubio came-in third (he’s going to be someone’s VP on a ticket). I think that my guy is still Jeb. Looks like he is a huge underdog, but there is a long way left to go. Trump will do better in New Hampshire and perhaps Jeb too and then the real contest is on. Is there a split coming to the party? Stay tuned…this might get really good or it might be a big ole sloppy hog-shit shower.

Iowa has spoken and they gave us the latter last night.

A look out of the glass elevator at work

CATAGORIES: GAS FUEL ENERGY,I hate it when this happens,WEATHER PHENOM — FloridaBill @ 10:34 am


It was seven below zero this morning. Wind Chills near 35 below. That is cold.

On the bright side, I paid $1.86 for gas, but it is apparently going back up..

Congrats to the Buckeyes and the Ducks!

CATAGORIES: I hate it when this happens,SPORTS,WEATHER PHENOM — FloridaBill @ 12:13 pm

The Ohio State Buckeyes beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on New Years day. The same day, the Oregon Ducks crushed the undefeated Florida State Seminoles and ended their 29 game winning streak. Now we see if the Ducks can end the current longest winning streak in NCAA Football and see if they can beat the Buckeyes on January 12.

I am almost too cold to care. It was ZERO this morning when I got up with a wind chill somewhere south of twenty below. We are set for another blanket of snow overnight (3-5 inches). Oh Joy! This means I get to shovel the driveway tomorrow morning before work in below zero temps!

However, The Buckeyes beat Bama and my hopes and dreams of yet another championship, the first ever playoff, were dashed. Congrats to the Buckeyes and the Ducks!

Now THAT is a pothole

As Winter slowly (very very slowly) fades away, Northerners are left to deal with the aftermath: potholes. Each and every year when the snow and ice recedes, potholes get created by the freezing and warming pavement and being driven over. They are dangerous and can pop a tire or wreck your suspension. Smart cars, bikes and children often get lost in these things. The one in this picture is from East Lansing, MI but it could just as easily been from Chicago:
