The National Football league history fascinates me for some reason. I saw a tweet this morning with the history of each team’s name and had to click, and what I found was a bit surprising. Some teams are named by fan vote, others after their owners, some by sports writers and some based on proximity [...]
In a short while, fellow EoTer David Binkowski will publish his thoughts on the Super Bowl. This is a preemptive strike because I know exactly what he’s going to say. Why do I care? Well, first off, I’m a die hard Pats fan. Always have been, always will be. I grew up in a time [...]
That’s right 1985 Chicago Bears fans: defense really doesn’t matter anymore. The vaunted Monsters of the Midway of the mid 1980s might have trouble winning in today’s NFL where league rules have changed the game forever. No longer is defense rewarded or toughness matter as much as it used to. Instead, quarterbacks and the high-flying [...]
The NFL’s Dallas Cowboys have started the season 1-6 with their playoff hopes fading fast, including yesterday’s embarrassing loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars 35-17. The Jags have been one of the more enigmatic teams this year, with losses to crap teams and wins against others, but Sunday’s domination of the Cowboys has to [...]
It’s no secret that the Patriots lost a winnable game yesterday in Miami. I can hear @JeffCutler laughing all the way to Miami as I write this. And, as anyone who reads my other blog or follows me elsewhere on the interwebs, you’ll know that I’m a die hard Patriots fan (going back to when [...]
The famous nursery rhyme What Are Little Boys Made Of? ends like this: “What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice And all that’s nice, That’s what little girls are made of.” For the most part my girls fit this image to a tee. They love to dress up in pretty outfits for holidays. [...]
In what San Diegans have come to call the “Rivers/Manning Bowl”, the Chargers got the last laugh with a thrilling, come-from-behind victory on the shoulders of quarterback Phillip Rivers.
Much like married sex, this post requires no set up. The EOT Dads are picking NFL games sans point spreads, so let’s get right to the picks. Oh, and we’re going to celebrate the weekly winner and lambaste the (biggest) loser.
Some days, when you are a working parent, it comes down to those 15 minutes. Those 15 minutes can separate sanity from, well, insanity. Those 15 minutes can take a Dad from the height of worry about his job, his future, his clients, his money, to, well, some real measure of inner peace. And what [...]
Every so often those of us getting older think back to the time when we could run a little faster, jump a little higher and keep up with the guys. Ah, the glory days. The days when you could play ball all day in the sun and still have the energy to shower up and grab beers until 2 AM with the boys. A few pounds and gray hairs later and the next thing you know one workout or game of softball makes you pay for days on end.
