Go Mark!

ESPN: “DALLAS — After two failed bids to buy a Major League Baseball team, billionaire Mark Cuban is seriously considering trying to use his money to create a playoff alternative to college football’s Bowl Championship Series”

I hope the man is able to pull this off. College Football needs a playoff system, period.

Come to think of it, it’s about time for my yearly BCS rant, complete with playoff brackets.

Cut, cut, cut!Good morning, and good luck.

In putting on the suit and entering the sleigh, the wearer waives any and all right to any previous identity, real or implied, and fully accepts the duties and responsibilities of Santa Claus, in perpetuity to which some time the wearer becomes unable to do so, by either accident or design.

Ok, quick, what movie! Send your guesses here.

Dear Sandy Claws

Sandy Claws!I’ve been an ok boy this year. I haven’t killed anyone at my new job, yet, but I really don’t see that happening. I think I’ve worked hard this year and I was kind of hoping you could deliver one of these lovely items to our home on Christmas morning. If not, I understand, but it sure would be swell.

  1. iPhone 4 (16GB would be great)
  2. 15-inch MacBook Pro (2.66GHz)
  3. iPad with WiFi (64GB would be awesome, but a 16GB will do just fine.)

Those items are from Rob’s Dream Wish List. I understand if those are a bit too spendy, that’s ok, there are other things I’d like to have. I have a list of stuff on Amazon as well as Think Geek, and my lovely wife always finds me special gifts that really make my day, so ask her if you need help.

Hugs and Kisses,

Movie line of the week

Hollywood!Good morning movie liners.

Ready, set, guess!

Actor #1: I’m sure they were just up on Mount Crumpit… playing with matches… defacing public property or something or other.
Actor #2: Oh, well that’s a relief.

Coloradoan: “Just last week, a bipartisan group appointed by the President called our national debt a ‘cancer’ that is threatening our country from within,” Udall, a Democrat, said in a statement Tuesday. “As I’ve said for many years, our looming debt is perhaps the greatest challenge to our economy and our national security. Now, exactly four days later, we are being asked by the president to add $900 billion to that debt over the next two years.”

I feel sorry for our children, and I’m really miffed at President Obama, but the GOP has nothing better to offer and Bill Clinton can’t run for President again.

What’s a nation to do?

Money Magazine: “ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (MONEY Magazine) — Joshua and Irene Vecchione are cleaning the dinner dishes one evening in October when Joshua’s cellphone rings. It’s Rhea from the Chase collections department, and she wants to know if he has $123,000 today. That’s what it will take to get the Vecchiones current on their mortgage.”

Gulp. We’ve been trying to sell our home for six months. Reading this kind of stuff scares the crap out of me.

Movie line of the week

Watchin' it on the big screen!Good morning movie liners, we’re back after a week off for Thanksgiving.

Here’s our line, good luck.

I want the Turbo Man action figure with the arms and legs that move and the boomerang shooter and his rock’n roller jet pack and the realistic voice activator that says 5 different phrases including, “It’s Turbo time!” Accessories sold separately. Batteries not included.

Ok, quick, what movie! Send your guesses here.
