Are We Watching a Sport or Barbarism?

Should The NFL Be Played In The Roman Colosseum?

I think in the past I have mentioned that I play a lot of fantasy football. It might have been in conjunction with the ongoing investigations into daily fantasy sports.

Is This Really a Bad Idea?

Apparently the CNBC debate didn’t go well. Personally, I am so done with the debates that I would watch almost anything else. Fortunately for me, on Wednesday night, there was something much more interesting if not more painful: watching Cuerto outduel deGrom in a pitching matching. It was bad. Regardless, the RNC is apparently upset,

The Problem With The Freedom Caucus

by
I saw a tweet form @chrislhayes on TV ratings. At the end of the picture of text, he included the following line: But it’s a caution not to assume that your own preferences, in politically ideology, or TV viewing are necessarily widely shared. This is why in a representative democracy, politicians need to be willing [&hellip

Special Sunday DFS Report

Anyone who knows me knows that I play a lot of Fantasy Football. I am in 6 season long leagues, 18 daily fantasy spots (DFS) survivor leagues, 2 season long DFS leagues, and a bunch of 50-50s. While that may sound like a lot, I only bet about $400-$500 per year. Only 1 of the 6 [&hellip

Stop being hypocritical

Let Pete Rose in the HOF

I play a lot of fantasy football. I have 6 season long traditional teams, 2 season long salary cap teams through Fantasy Feud, 18 entries into the Fantasy Feud survivor contests, and I tend to play at least 5 daily 50-50 games at Draft Kings. With all of this it is clear to me that [&hellip

Please stop covering mass shootings.

The Gun Control Debate is Over

by
Actually it has been over for a few years. Specifically it ended after Newtown. When the US decided that the mass killing of 2nd graders could be tolerated, the debate ended. And that is exactly what we did. We chose guns and mass shootings. So now that there has been another mass shooting, it should [&hellip

Despite the fact that I still plan on voting for Trump in the New Hampshire primary, I have to admit that in many cases I have no idea what he is saying. Granted I am not a true Trump supporter. I am supporting the WWTDD ticket, which calls for a Trump/Sanders race. Still, I would [&hellip

There is no question that the police are out of control. The killing of unarmed, mostly African American, citizens has been gaining increasing publicity. Dashboard and body camera video has captured deplorable police behavior. In many cases the official police report is directly contradicted by the video evidence. Further, if not for the

How Much Is This Going To Cost Me?

Yesterday I tried to visit a doctor. I failed because the doctor could not answer a simple question. “If my insurance rejects this claim, how much am I going to be responsible for?” To me this is a piece of information I need before consenting to services. I don’t think it is a good idea [&hellip
