Here’s Johnny…………………………………..

After almost 19 months, I’m back. Why? Why was it so long? Because I got a job and we all know that the machinery of capitalism is oiled by the blood of its workers. And like you, I am again one of them. Bleeding heavily. But I have already re-claimed my American sense of complacency and […]

A Little From the Sports Pages

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. A couple of things have happened in the sports world with a local flavor. On Friday, the Chicago Bears signed free agent Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers to a huge contract. They also signed running back Chester Taylor away from the Minnesota Vikings where he’s been a pretty decent back […]

A few of the old man’s favorite things

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… I’ve been back from Nevada for a week now and it’s been almost two weeks since I lost my dad. I have to say that I’ve been totally floored by the number of friends that have reached out, called, sent notes and messages. A few years ago, I was basically underground […]

My Dirty Dozen Prophecies Revisited

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………… Well, it’s been another 7 or 8 weeks since I last reviewed my Dirty Dozen prophecies that I made on 11/5/09. I last checked on them 12/23/09 and a couple had already come true. And I know that another one came awfully close since then—but failed—so I thought perhaps I’d take […]

If you don’t have a brother, get yourself one

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. I’ve extolled the virtues of family on some of my posts here a few times. My dad is battling some ill health right now and the whole family’s thoughts are with him constantly. My mom is the rock of the family. The epitome of a classic mom. Marian Cunningham from Happy […]

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… It’s been kind of weird, but I have had so many reminders lately about how fast time flies by. This realization started for me a good 7 or 8 years ago on a certain level. I noticed it happening in my own life once I hit age 30. And as you […]

Your weekend fun-time planner free of charge

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… Well, my weekend is shaping up to be pretty good despite concerns for my dear, old dad not feeling so well out in Nevada. Other than those worries, there are tons of things happening this weekend to help a man (or woman) get their mind off of stressful things. As I’ve excitedly mentioned already, […]

1st Week of Football Playoffs Ends With a Bang

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……. While me and the boys thoroughly enjoy the 17 weeks of the regular season for NFL football, nothing gets us revved up like the playoffs. Everybody is just a little more jacked and instead of focusing on several games at once, we can pour all of our intensity and enthusiasm into […]

New year off to a bang already

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. So far the year is only four days old. But in several regards, it’s already off to a flying start. At least in Chicago and the surrounding area. First off, I want to remind you about the  West 34  gig coming up at Rolling Lanes in Countryside, IL on Friday, January 15. […]

The Dirty Dozen Prophecies…….An Update

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……….. Back on November 5, 2009 I posted a dozen predictions/prophecies about the next 14 months in the world. Because things have been just as wacko in the last 6 weeks as it ever is, I thought it would be fun to see how many I have come close to in just these 6 […]
