Can I get a boo-shank on the hank-skank one time, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers?

Did you know that fresh bread is delivered to the store five days a week and you can tell by the color of the plastic twist-tag which day the bread was baked?




Friday - White

Saturday - Yellow

And they say you never learn anything new by reading blogs. 

ESPN filmed a gay kiss at a PBA bowling tournament. Gayest thing ever seen in sports since Tony Romo blew all the Cowboys' chances. 

I saw the “The Hobbitt” and it is over three hours long. To give you an idea how long that is, for the guy sitting next to me, that was 20 phone calls and 45 text messages.

In sad news, Kat Von-D had her tattoo of her ex, Jesse James, removed. She claims he cheated on her with 19 women. Jesse James is to relationships what Bernie Madoff was to financial planning.

19 women. Those are John Mayer-cheating-on-Taylor-Swift-like numbers.

Since you asked: 
Jodi Arias brutal murder case  resonates (in a jealous rage she slashed, stabbed, slit the throat, shot in the head her boyfriend)  because many people deeply want to believe women in general, especially well-educated and attractive women, are not capable of such vile evil. 

Sadly, I know three women very well who are attractive, smart and  polished - it would cause all three physical pain not to send a handwritten Thank You note after getting a gift - and yet they are such greedy, selfish sociopaths there is no doubt in my mind they would commit a heinous killing, with their car, gun, knife or, if needs be, their bare hands, to get what they want. 

Four. Just thought of a fourth. 

Congratulations to Louisville.

But all kidding aside, I thought Florida's lack of class - one moron ejected for punching a player in the face right in front of two refs and then vehemently denying it - was absolutely embarrassing. Florida gave up 100 yards in stupid penalties.

At one point, Florida was behind by 23 points and a big fat Florida lineman started shaking his huge fat belly in a clownish dance following a routine tackle. 

This all falls on the coach, Will Muschamp. You cannot be a good coach without being a good person. Muschamp's inability to recruit class acts or instill good sportsmanship or discipline is entirely his fault. 

A fish and a football team rots from the head down. (See: New York Jets) 

Time after time we have seen athletes who came from brutally awful backgrounds with virtually no or, worse, horrible parents, rise up and become model athletes and citizens. 

But they need guidance to do it, and clearly Muschamp does not have any interest in providing that guidance. Muschamp just wants athletes regardless of how awful their behavior. 

It harkens back to the embarrassing era of Barry Switzer at Oklahoma. 

Again, congratulations to Louisville, they were the beneficiaries of Florida's throwing the game away due to poor leadership. 

To be a good coach you have to be a good person. Not one player who ever played for the great John Wooden can ever remember him once saying they needed to win a game. If his players put forth their best effort, he was satisfied. It just happened that the best effort from his players almost always resulted in a win.

We've seen clips of Vince Lombardi yelling at his players. That was due to passion, not anger or hate. Lombardi wept when he had to trade Paul Hornung to New Orleans.

How many times do you think Barry Switzer wept when one of his many former players went to prison? 

Personally, I did not think the announcers did a good enough of a job pointing out what a stud Louisville quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, really is. Now there is a class act. Willed his team to victory is what he did. 

For reasons that are so obvious I don't need to say them:

But I am not an expert on up-and-coming, young, hip black comedians. 

But I am a big fan of Kevin Hart. The guy killed in "40-Year-Old-Virgin" and "Modern Family." The problem? Now on his third talk show interview, I haven't actually heard him say anything that is all that funny.

Whereas Conan O'Brien's writer, comedian Deon Cole, slays every time.
