Some random thoughts for you on this Tuesday evening… enjoy!
- Fox Sports released their top ten list of the “worst superbowl teams in history” this morning, and topping the list before the game is even played is the 2008 Arizona Cardinals. Nobody expects Arizona to win the championship. According to the Vegas odds, they are 7 point underdogs. Somehow, though, I don’t think they mind – they were also 4 point underdogs to Philadelphia (they won by 7) and 10 point underdogs against Carolina (they won by 20). What’s my pick? I thought it was going to be the Colts and Giants playing, who were both one and done, so why would anyone care?
- I think it’s humorous that the folks that were so anxious to boot Dubya out of office have replaced him with someone who’s doing essentially the same things only in different packaging thus far in his young Presidential tenure. Everybody made fun of Bush for providing economic stimulus checks to everyone in the country – now those same people love Obama’s plan to… provide economic stimulus checks to everyone in the country. Folks were so ticked off about a federal bailout to save the economy that was going to cost $750 billion – now those same people love Obama’s plan to… provide another federal bailout to save the economy that is going to cost an additional $825 billion. Oh, well. Politics will be politics, I suppose.
- All I have to say about 24 this week is that silent clock had BETTER not have been for Renee Walker. And after the whole controversy over Tony Almeida’s non-silent clock, you can’t tell me they’re haphazardly throwing those things around these days…
- One of the greatest side effects of this economic recession is that report after report is coming out showing that individuals are beginning to use cash more and credit cards less. That sucks for the short-term viability of our economy, but is easily the best thing for our long-term prosperity and security as a nation and as individuals. Let’s hope that trend continues to be the case even after things start picking up again.
Longer blogs, including a couple of new posts in the “It’s All Greek” series, will be coming sometime soon. I’m was swamped last week with job stuff and swamped this week with school stuff. Have a great rest of your Inauguration Day!
