Few televised events captivate the national attention quite like the president’s State of the Union address. On the third Tuesday in January, year after year, it draws American families together in front of a television screen to hear a summation of the past year and a look ahead to the next year in government from the chief executive himself....
Sorry for the mess up last week. There was a mix-up and my Seahawks–Bears and Jets-Patriots picks weren’t in the article. Unfortunately I picked the Seahawks and Patriots to win, so I went 1-3 on last weekend’s playoff picks and I’m 3-5 for the entire postseason. Packers @ Bears Matchup The Packers and Bears are the oldest rivals in the NFL. They...
“The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try and take it.” Thomas Jefferson perfectly encapsulates the truly American notion of bearing arms, saluting the indomitable spirit of the people and their will to defend what is rightfully theirs: guns. Our forefathers, most notably Thomas Jefferson, scoffed at the idea of depriving the...

This is obviously a failed science and who knows; in three years we may be talking about how great Nathan Enderle is (he...

Carrying the team for most of the season, Newton was glad to share the glory with freshman running back Michael Dyer, whose 37 yard...

Who could believe that Texas, a state that epitomizes hard-headedness and acts as a breeding ground for far-right thought, would set such a premium on compromise to get things done? In the midterm elections, an...
I went 2-2 in my picks last week. Not too impressive but at least I have a better winning percentage than the Seahawks. Here is my divisional round matchups breakdown: Ravens @ Steelers Matchup             When Baltimore and Pittsburgh play, we usually know one thing: it’s going to be a tough-nosed, defensive battle. In the two games they played each other in the...
Saints @ Seahawks Matchup The defending champion New Orleans Saints travel to Seattle this Saturday to take on the Seahawks, who, with a 7-9 record, are the worst team ever to host a playoff game. The Seahawks only made the playoffs because they won their weak division, the NFC West, by beating the Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams in the...
