Election Day is Here

This campaign is 21 months old. I think it’s safe to say we are all tired of it and ready for tomorrow. It is the greatest right as an American to be able to vote. Barack Obama is the American Dream. He has the steady hand and sound judgment we need in these tough times. The GOP has thrown everything at him, they have called him a terrorist, a muslin, a bigot, yet he has never lost his cool and has always focused on the American people. John McCain has forgot this election is about the people of America. He is running an anti-Obama campaign. Barack Obama from the beginning has shown this election is about the American people and what the power of hope can accomplish. Trickle down economics does not work and he understands that. He doesn’t believe we should stay in a war just so we can say we “won the war.” It’s about saving American lives rather then proving we were right to invade a country that had NOTHING to do with 9/11. For all these reasons when you cast your ballot tomorrow, cast it for Barack Obama.
 

 

My Mistake, and my Pick for President!

I wanted to fix an error I made in my last post, 10 questions with Mike O’Malley!  I said I emailed him the questions in July.  It was actually in August, the 28th to be exact!  Mike emailed me my error!  Mike I apologize 1000 times!  I was just breaking chops.  I would also like to take this time to, again, thank Mike for taking the time to answer those questions!  I know he is busy with his new gig on NBC My Own Worst Enemy!

A little politics from a guy who would rather let Dennis and Callahan discuss them, it is their show after all.  But I am a McCain guy.  I am surprised at myself that I actually did a bunch of research on Barack, because for a while I was mixed on who to vote for!  I don’t really believe the Obama/Biden ticket on their “tax policy”  in the past few weeks they have gone from, a break for those making less than 250,000, to 200,000 and then at the beginning of the week 150,000 from that loose cannon Joe Biden.  They can’t get on the same page!  Also I can’t get over the Rev. Wright sound clips and video that I have seen and the drops I play on the show.  I guy who says “God Damn America,” sorry that doesn’t fly with me.  So it comes down to trust for me, I feel that I can trust McCain, trust that he will listen to both sides of the isle, he has the experience that we need, not a guy who is going to have on the job training or that voted present 130 times!  I haven’t even mentioned his buddy Bill Ayers, anybody that kicks off his political career in the living room of a guy who participated in bombing the US Capitol and the Pentagon, I’ve got a little problem with that, but don’t let those little facts get in the way of “Change” Iggy!

Just Talk Sports

For those who call or email the show asking for us to talk sports, here is my answer for you, You start, go ahead.  What do you want us to talk about?  Varitek’s contract?  The C’s game 1?  Pats Rams.  Those subjects have been addressed, but let me let you in on a little behind the scenes, NOBODY calls in on them, they are boring.  Folks we are coming to the end of one of the most important elections in our lifetimes, at least in mine.  And the talk is far more engaging than how many years they should give Tek.  Trust me I would love the guys to talk about a sport I love, hockey, but you can’t really break down a game, the only guy that can do that effectively is Dale!  Oh I left out that riveting world series, didn’t you hear Meter explain that the ratings were way down on them?  Well they were!  Bear with the guys for a few more days then they can bore you with a good 3 months of Tek talk!

Who’s Smokin/Who’s Chilled

I’m completely ripping this off from every other website, TV show and newspaper so don’t rip me for being unoriginal……..Who’s Smokin’ / Who’s Chilled

Who’s Smokin’

Pats D-Line

Glad to see them show up the last 2 weeks. I’ve talked about Richard Seymour before, but he has shown up and as goes Big Sey, so goes the pats D-Line. When Seymour, Wilfork, and Ty Warren are on their games, the Pats become a Super Bowl Contender.

CNN

We make fun of their slogan, “The Best Political Team on Television,” but they are. Night in and night out they provide the most balance and always make me think and tell me something I don’t know. Fox News has always been a joke and MSNBC has become the same.

Lane Kiffin

He is the hot name for all the top college coaching jobs in the country. Clemson, Syracuse and Washington all are interested in the ex-Raider coach. Possible openings at Tennessee, Auburn and Washington State are all good fits for Kiffin. Being fired by Crazy Al Davis is the best thing to ever happen to him. He will take over one of these programs in January and I have no doubt will be successful….unless he takes the Syracuse job.

Who’s Chilled

Jabar Gaffney

The Pats receiver has 2 catches in the last 2 games for a total of 21 yards. Matt Cassel seems to have found a groove with Randy Moss and Kevin Faulk, which is a good thing, but Gaffney is a valuable weapon that Cassel needs to take advantage of.

Saturday Night Live

After the best month of sketch comedy we have seen in a long time, SNL took a week off last Saturday with a terrible show. One funny skit in 90 minutes is unacceptable.

Mass Politicians

This week has not been kind to the folks on Beacon Hill. No one believed things were on the “up and up” in the world of Mass politics, but the Dianne Wilkerson story has made us all want to take a shower and elect new leaders to run our state.

5 Things I Am Looking Forward To

I love the fall and this time of year.  The only problem is that winter is right around the corner.  But don’t be upset about the days getting shorter and frost on your car and no more golf.  There is lots to look forward to.  Here are 5 things I am looking forward to in the next few weeks.

BC/Notre Dame on November 8th – This is one of the most under rated rivalries in college football. It means a lot to both teams. These teams seem pretty evenly matched and I have no doubt Charlie Weis would love to come back to Boston and show everyone he is not just another product of Bill Belichick’s coaching tree.

The Collapse of the Dallas Cowboys – It’s coming folks. Jerry Jones is 2 loses away from firing Wade Wilson. The ‘Boys are moving into a new stadium next year and not making the playoffs is unacceptable to Jones. If Dallas loses 2 more games before the middle of December T.O. will have a meltdown of epic proportion.

The Hot Stove – There is not way Theo sits and does nothing. John Henry loves to make a splash in free agency, especially when the Yankees are going to make several. The Sox are in good shape for 2009, but adding a big fish or 2 would not only make the Sox the favorite next year, but would be sure to steal the headlines in Boston and NY for a few weeks in December.

The Pats Down the Stretch – I have not been this excited about a second half of an NFL season since the Patriots first Super Bowl run in 2001. Seeing Matt Cassel mature every week and watching guys like Ben Jarvis Green Ellis and Brandon Meriweather turn into big time players for a playoff team is what makes being a fan fun. Last year was amazing to watch the Patriots roll every week. But until the Super Bowl there was no drama. The Pats should steal TNT’s slogan, “Drama Lives Here.”

Election Night – Forget that my guy is going to win, it’s a night when all the networks are trying to beat the other in breaking news and getting the top guests. Everyone, Democrats and Republicans and even the deadbeats who don’t vote, are all watching to see what will happen next. When will John McCain give his concession speech? Will there be 1 million people at Barack Obama’s rally? Will Keith Olberman openly weep? What will that sack of s-t Dick Morris say?
