Yer First Rodeo?

You can imagine that growing up in Camden, New Jersey, there wasn’t a lot of rodeo in my youth.  The only horses I saw were those of mounted Philadelphia police officers attempting to keep order.  Since then, I’ve lived in Delaware (not many cowpokes there), North Carolina (rural-ish but much more farming than ranching), Chicago…

Third Time’s A Cha— oh, wait.

One thing that was odd about being on the road for three weeks and being very busy and distracted while we were in Virginia was that the end of the NFL season came and went without a chance to opine on it here. When I left, the Eagles had beaten the Giants to take control…

As the Eagles’ national prominence has declined with this sub-par season, I’ve noticed their increasing absence from “national” slots in the broadcast schedule (1).  This week was no exception – the Chargers were the only game on in the late set of games.  It wasn’t a very thrilling game to watch (the Bolts annihilated the…

The Guard Has Officially Changed

There had been some reasons for optimism.  Right? At 3-4, you could convince yourself that the Philadelphia Eagles had shot themselves in the foot a couple of times and that they really were a team that you had to worry about as an opponent. A couple of quality wins against the Lions (who now look…
