Bonds December 25th, 2001 @ 8:42 am PST
I just heard Stuart Scott on Sportscenter talking about Barry Bonds’ season this year. He said something that just blows me away. I hadn’t – until now – really appreciated Bonds’ home run extravaganza. The 73 (SEVENTY-THREE!!!) home runs in a season is amazing, obviously. But Scott just said that Bonds hit a home run […]

In other NFL news, NBC has announced that during halftime of the Super Bowl, it will air a 20-minute special of the drek “reality” show Fear Factor – reality shows” being the least real things on television – in which the contestants are six former Playboy Playmates of the Year. Swimsuits will surely be required […]
Helen Keller December 24th, 2001 @ 5:48 pm PST
“I had once believed that we were all masters of our fate – that we could mould our lives into any form we pleased … I had overcome deafness and blindness sufficiently to be happy, and I supposed that anyone could come out victorious if he threw himself valiantly into life’s struggle. But as I […]
Danny Wuerffel CD December 24th, 2001 @ 5:02 pm PST
Danny Wuerffel is the latest athlete to cut a CD, but unlike other jocks, he’s not flowing about the grittiness of the mean streets. On the 14-song Heaven and Nature Sings – Christmas with Danny Wuerffel, Family, and Friends, the Bears’ quarterback lends his vocal stylings to such chestnuts as Silent Night and Joy to […]
Spurrier December 24th, 2001 @ 4:52 pm PST
Wow! I’m sitting here in LA with ESPN’s Best of Sportscenter on the TV and I just saw Steve Spurrier wish all the armed forces a Merry Christmas. That was cool.
Song December 24th, 2001 @ 4:24 pm PST
Happy Xmas (War Is Over) – John Lennon This is my favorite Christmas song. It’s one of my favorite songs period. I can’t remember a Christmas that I didn’t hear this song. This was notably the second year in a row that I failed to hear Alice’s Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie on Thanksgiving.

*Note: There is no new song in this post. So you have an audio CD and you want to convert some of the songs on it into mp3 format. How in the world do you do that? It’s easier than you think. There are only about a million places on line with tutorials and software […]
Christmas Eve Kayaks December 24th, 2001 @ 2:24 pm PST
Here’s another one of my dad’s photographs. He’s been kayaking all over New England for the last year or so. He’s got a thing set up so he can have his camera on the end of the kayak while he’s … er … kayaking. (Y’know, there really aren’t any synonyms for kayaking.) I just think […]

Double Merry Super Christmas Eve! Or, alternately, Bah Humbug! You choose.

I absolutely adore that they call the show “Monday Night Football” even when it’s airing on a Saturday night.
