Life is not fair. But we all knew that. Makes one wonder about a supreme being, spiritual or otherwise. Last Sunday I had the luxury of watching the NFC Championship game without caring who would win. I like New Orleans as a city and feel that they deserve something because of Katrina. As for Minnesota, suffice it to say Bret Favre and 309 consecutive starts at quarterback, an NFL record for any position, let alone quarterback. Since September 27, 1992, the guy has never missed a game. So whoever won, thumbs-up.
Then the game happened. One team totally dominated the other. The Vikings had 475 total yards to the Saints 257. Yet the sports world is giddy over the Aint's going to the Super Bowl. Minnesota was the better team. But they lost due to five turnovers and some pretty clutch choking by their coaching staff at the end of regulation. Still, the second best NFC team goes to Miami to play that team from Indiana, pleeeeze.
I didn't watch Obama tonight. Why? The guy has turned out to be a putz. Another lying, thieving, consummate insider politician. I voted with my heart, not my head. My bad. The first candidate I voted for since George McGovern and I pissed that away, just like Favre did Sunday's game.
A friend of this Blog asked for this. Something without charts, or stock picks, something human, maybe some music, something charming like I used to write. It didn't start out like this, but the Red Wings lost badly tonight and do you know to who? Minnesota of all teams. Where is that written? Who comes up with this shit? Is there no sense to the universe, is it all just some random exhaust, remnants from a far away and long ago big bang?
Charming, my ass.
