FootBall ~ The Greatest Sport of them All!!
Ahhh...The Great George Carlin, doing nothing less than ushering in the legendary Greatness of Saturday Night Live, in front of a live, late night audience, mind you, on the very dawn ~ as it were ~ if its glorious, inaugural season, on October 11th, 1975, with one of the greatest skits ever performed. I haven't been a Fan of current SNL Crews for more than 30 years, but the original one, with Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Bill Murray, et cetera, was magnificent.
October 11th, 1975, ironically, was the same day that kicked off the 1975 World Series, one of the best ever played, between the Big Red Machine and those colossal underdogs, my beloved Red Sox, who came within an ace of pulling off a miracle upset. And of course the 1975 World Series featured Game 6 and Fisk's Home Run, one of the most epic, legendary moments in Sports History...Baseball was still a great game in 1975, and I was obsessed with it for many years, all the way until those scum betrayed us by murdering the 1994 season in August.
Baseball lost its Soul, that year.
Yet until 1994, it was a great game.
But everything that Carlin said was true: FootBall speaks to America's Soul.
Working together to achieve measurable goals.
And there's something else: Advancing down field, using power, speed, tactics, and teamwork, in direct combat with one's foe, employing a combination of Trench Warfare, Combat Skills, Fire Power, BlitzKrieg, and Air Assault, simulates actual Warfare in a savage, satisfying way.
FootBall ~ American FootBall, not to be confused with what I prefer to call European FootBall, as "Association" FootBall or "Soccer", for short, are odd names ~ is the greatest Sport of all!
Food!! Lobster Newburg!!
Many Earthlings are aware that Lobster is the greatest food of them all.
But many are ~ as I for many years was ~ unaware of the best Lobster dish of'm all!
Sitting down with Lobster and drawn butter is awesome, of course.
But nothing captures the rich possibilities of Lobster like this rich, creamy, savory dish:
Here's the Recipe, from A Family Feast, a truly great Site!
Find it. Try it. I beg'f you.
Random Political Thought of the Day
America, this week ~ today ~ is fighting for its very Soul.
The vast majority of Democratic voters are good people who care about others.
The people that Democratic voters put into Power care about nobody.
They manipulate voters. They tell lies ~ outrageous lies.
And now they are trying to murder the truth. Joe Biden is an evil, corrupt Traitor.
Everybody knows it. A vote for him is a vote for Tyranny.
FaceBook and Twitter are his staunch allies.
But there is hope: They're being called out.
