NFL Week 2

Filed in Sports

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is are the Eagles, who were up 17 points in the 4th quarter and go down in overtime. Also taking an ‘L’ is my vow not to get all upset about them dudes. See this is why I root for Pittsburgh and any other team I think of [...]

Ain’t Gonna Bump No More…

Filed in Everwhatever

Ain’t Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman) is probably one of the more important songs in my life, in the sense that it’s been around for a long time, and at very different stages. I was first aware of the song back in the 70′s when it came out. I was very [...]

Eli Whitney Ain’t Black

Filed in Everwhatever

Every once in a while, something comes along that just flat-out surprises me. This most recent surprise comes courtesy of the fact that there seem to be a whole lot of people who think Eli Whitney was Black.  Frankly, I don’t understand how anybody could have that misconception.  Or maybe put a little milder, I [...]

NFL Week 1

Filed in Sports

Happy NFL Day. Well actually, NFL day was Thursday, but today the Eagles chalked up their first win. Granted, it was against the Texans, so there’s no way to really gauge the quality of the win, but I will say that Donovan looked good. I didn’t see the interception, but he obviously has to limit [...]

Sellout

Filed in Everwhatever

Well, after years of holding out and refusing to buy an ipod, I finally broke down and got one.  Once I went through all those rounds of trouble with the iriver, I decided I didn’t really have any choice.  It was just better to go with the industry leader so if I lose a part, I [...]

Thinkin About School

Filed in Everwhatever

Black America Web reports some early findings on a study done by Thomas Dee, an economics professor at Swarthmore, that seem to suggest that the gender of the teacher can have some influence on the performance of the student. At first glance, this makes sense. Not necessarily a whole, whole lot of sense, as in [...]

Football Traveling

Filed in Sports

I’ve been planning to go to some NFL city other than Philadelphia (or any other city in the NFC East) and act like I’m a fan of their team for quite some time, now.  On Columbus Day weekend, I actually plan to do it.  My original idea was to do the AFC West, but we [...]
