2013 NFL Picks – Post #4

Let’s polish this sucker off! AFC SOUTH 1. Indianapolis – It is a testament to how horrid this division is that a team this thoroughly mediocre should beat the living piss out of the competition. And there is one reason that this team is that much higher than the rest. Behold the ogre known as

2014 NFL Picks – Post #3

And now we shift our focus over to the AFC, where a whole lot of transactions have led to a whole lot of…well, nothing changing all that much, actually. AFC EAST 1. New England – De-fault! De-fault! Thankfully, the rest of the division just keeps pissing any sort of competition away, because the Patriots these

NFL Picks 2014 – Post #2

Welcome to the rest of the NFC! NFC SOUTH 1. New Orleans – Hey, it’s the Saints! They’re no longer taking out offensive players for small pittances of cash…at least, that’s what they’re telling the league! They’re led by Sean Payton, who really looks like the sort of douchebag who still tries to pick up

NFL Picks 2014 – Post #1

I figure I’ll do two divisions per post. The plan is for these to be quick and loaded with mockery. So there you go. Let’s roll. NFC EAST 1. New York Giants – Being declared the winner of this mess is like being declared the handsomest man in the burn unit. Sure, you’re #1, but

Well, That Sucked

Yesterday pretty much sucked ass. I took my car in for service, pretty much knowing that my front left wheel bearing was screwed up. And I waited…and I waited…and I had to go to work before getting the call from the shop to tell me what was up. Yay! I’m a bit of a control

Musings

Yep, it’s another one of those. Because a man gets to do quite a bit of thinking when he’s walking home after dropping his car off for service. -Apparently, I can walk nearly 6 KM in about 50 minutes. Not bad at all, especially considering that includes waiting to cross at intersections. Cardio, I deem

I Did It All For The Knowledge

So, the other night at the end of the workday, we were sitting around in the ramp office and just chatting. Sports, bad jokes, mockery (to the extent of a theme song being created for one person)…the typical office chatter. Topics were all over the place. And I really realized for the first time that

Crushing Skulls With Simplicity

At times, I enjoy large-scale and complex strategy games. The machinations of running and expanding an empire leave plenty of options open for conquest and slaking my thirst for backstabbery and out-thinking the opposition. But sometimes, I just want something easy. There is no easier game than One Finger Death Punch. You’re a badass little

The Kill

My senses kick in. There’s something ahead. Something juicy. I need to see it. I need to assess…could this be it? Could this be the one? My pace quickens, a sweat of anticipation begins to build on my skin as the blood pumps. The digital wilderness begins to fly by as the speed increases. And

The Odd Duck

Something has occurred to me the past few years of the blogging challenge. I am really different. I mean, look at the others involved in this. Sure, Peter is similar in style in that he has his collectables and games and stuff, and Shaun likes his gadgets, and Liam sometimes talks football, but that’s about
