Final Words for your Weekend

I was just thinking ….

…. what does it say about the NFL that Hines Ward was voted by his colleagues as the dirtiest player in the league. He’s a receiver! What it says to me is the NFL has become more of a two-hand  touch league that a tackle football league.

…. that Ben Roethlisberger is right. These are not the Steelers of the 1970’s. This year’s team passes the ball much better than it runs and throws better than the teams of the 1970’s and if anyone is offended by that comment, they need to join us in the 21st century. I enjoyed the Steelers of the 1970’s as much as anyone, but football is a different game today and three yards and a cloud of dust doesn’t cut it anymore.

…. why do people take tragedies like the one at Fort Hood and turn it into a vehicle for advancing their own agendas. Heard some guy on Fox News saying the liberal media was more concerned about the shooter than the victim and its time to end the “PC” military. Can we not blame an entire race, creed or group of people for the insanity of one person. Based on that logic, the D.C. sniper’s actions were a reflection on the entire African-American community.

….. we just finished another election season and so much for an engaged electorate. Voting turnout was lower nationally was lower in 2009 than it was in 2007. This after the election of 2008 in which record numbers turned out to cast their ballot … and take part in “the most important election of our time”. I guess it was because we’re back to apathy as usual.

… are you as psyched as I am about the warm weather this weekend? I’m actually going to break out the golf clubs and try to shoot less than 100.

… met and interviewed Katie Lee, better known to the world as Katie Lee Joel. She is the former wife of singer Billy Joel. Now, at age 27, she is reinventing herself as a culinary celebrity. She has written her second cookbook and hopes someday to reach the heights fo Rachel Ray.  She will be doing a cooking show and book signing at Good Taste Pittsburgh in Monroeville Saturday. Found out she and Ben Roethlisberger went to Miami of Ohio together, but didn’t know each other in college.

… I haven’t had a steak in ages. Wondering where I should go to get one. That’s my mission for the weekend. You enjoy the nice weather.
