NFL, NASCAR and America

So the Divisionaries continue to divide… It’s true that NASCAR has only had 4 black drivers in its history, notably one being a black woman. Yet, the popularity of the sport fades in the light of Football. Where 64% of Americans claim to be fans. Break that down to 73% of men and 55% of […]

Chief’s Football Analysis by PEG

Well….I must comment on the KC Chiefs victory last night. Those of you who know me well….after being a lifetime fan, who remembers watching the Chiefs Win the Super Bowl in 1970, know the Chiefs lost my unconditional love after they lost 1998 AFC Divisional Home Game (13-3, home field advantage, 1st round bye) to […]

Giants win Super Bowl – Belichick is outcoached

Son, The Giants won the Super Bowl.  Final score – Giants 17, Patriots 14. I tried to engage the Patriots fans at the Boston Globe. Every post I wrote was taken down after an hour. They did not like hearing the honesty of someone from outside their mental geography. I earned this – I told […]

NY Giants – the surge is working

Son, I was flipping through the channels on television a few minutes ago. I paused for a second on ESPN and heard “New York Giants.” I hit the channel button and immediately heard John McCain saying, “The surge is working…” So what I heard was “New York Giants – the surge is working.” Well, that […]

Hannah Montana predicts Super Bowl – NO to Patriots

Son, I was surfing today.  Hannah Montana has my attention today because of my grandchildren.  I listened to this music video and could not help thinking of the New England Patriots at the Super Bowl today.  Perhaps that is because she directly refers to them. I think all of the Patriot fans recognize the reality […]

New England Patriots – Big Bad John

Son, Jimmy Dean was singing metaphorically about the New England Patriots. “There was only one left to save.” Big Bad John. This is the story of the Super Bowl for this year – will they come out of the mine, or not. Dad

Notes on Belichick and Brady – psychological warfare

Son, The New England Patriots feel a sense of destiny. They are half right. They are destined to lose the big game. Their coaching gaminess is catching up with them. Psychological tricks only work for awhile. Fool me once sort of logic. Is Tom Brady injured or not? Is Belichick stonewalling? Belichick manages every aspect […]

Oops! The Giants beat Green Bay

Son, I was all ready for a Super Bowl between super quarterbacks.  What a game, Favre and Brady.  That would have been fun.  But there is another quarterback emerging – and he has a famous name – Manning. Eli Manning has played quality football in the playoffs.  He has inspired the confidence of his team […]

Tom Brady versus Favre or Manning

Son, One of the ESPN sports shows posed an interesting question a couple of weeks ago. The question: “Would the Patriots be undefeated if Brett Favre or Peyton Manning had been the quarterback?” The concensus on the ESPN panel was a unanimous ‘NO.’ But I think they made a couple of erroneous assumptions. They assumed […]

Struggling with winter blues, 1-15-08

Son, I am struggling with the winter blues. Generally I enjoy the changing of the seasons. My perennial flower gardens are one of the great joys of my life – I know spring has arrived when the Hostas first peek out from under the warm blanket of mulch. Summer brings grandchildren baseball games, grilled hamburgers, […]

Jack Del Rio and mechanized Belichick

Son, History is being made in the NFL.  The game tonight, Saturday, January 12, will be a milestone.  The New England Patriots have a perfect season, that is to say that they have not lost a game.  But tonight they are facing Jack Del Rio.  He is the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Del Rio […]

New England Patriots – love or hate

Son, The New England Patriots have completed the regular season with a perfect 16 – 0 record. Congratulations. But like many things in life – people have an emotional response. Football is a sport that requires talent on the field and emotion in the stadium. My emotions say, please don’t win it all. The only […]
