I’m back after a little bit of…well, more like a six month layoff. Since the last post, all hell has broken loose in Trump Land. He continues to run through White House Staff like an escort (or porn star) at The Bunny Ranch and has also picked fights with the REAL corrupt midget, Kim Jong-un.
Speaking of all hell breaking loose, Hollywood perverts are being exposed left and right as recently as last week with the scandal that rocked Nickelodeon. You can probably say they have lot of slime on their hands. Being a guy, am I permitted to use “that” hashtag or should I just stick with #IALSO when referencing the social media movement that was born from it?
Speaking of Hollywood, we found out that Ben Affleck’s awful tattoo is REAL! WTF! Maybe he’s just a huge fan of Game of Thrones and Cersei’s dinosaurs? Maybe he lost a bet to Matt Damon? Maybe J-Lo told him that he’d be a bad ass with it and if he got it she would never leave him? Who knows? What we do know is that he had a lot of time on his hands while Matt and Casey were being cast in and making movies. Poor Ben. Live By Night is a really good book by Dennis Lehane (B.C. High alum) that picked up a few years after the end of The Given Day. Unfortunately, the movie didn’t live up to the book. I’m not going to say it was a total flop, but I can see why it didn’t receive any Oscar nominations. I haven’t read World Gone By, the 3rd book in the Coughlin series, but I have downloaded it and probably will this summer.
Billions is back, baby! “Greed is Good!” – Gordon Gekko, 1987. It’s natural for shows to have “filler” episodes where not much happens and don’t further the overarching storyline, but I can’t say this has happened in Billions…or Game of Thrones for that matter. My theory is the series will end (whenever that may be…hopefully not soon) with both Axe and Chuck ending up in the same Federal prison. One thing for sure is that we’re in for a fun ride!
What else? OH! The Pats made it to Super Bowl LII but were screwed because the NFL now admit the TD pass to Corey Clement would not be a catch this season. For those who will say the Pats would not have made it because the Jesse James catch would’ve forced the Pats to go to Pittsburgh for the AFC Championship, I say “Bollacks!”. The GOAT, B.B., and Matty P. would’ve waltzed in and proven their dominance. I fully admit that I’ve been spoiled over the past two decades living in Boston with all the Super Bowls, World Series, Stanley Cup, and NBA championships but all sports fans are greedy.
The fall saw a few minor windy rain showers that impacted a few miles of Texas, the Caribbean, and the South. Seriously, though…even though those hurricanes are no longer in the headlines there are a great deal of people in Puerto Rico who still don’t have power and people all across the impacted areas whose lives were turned upside down and still have not fully recovered.

Even though it is a hot topic, I’m not going to comment on the mass shootings that have occurred since the last post because I believe our country/society is so toxic right now between guns, Trump, taxes, etc. This site is meant to be some sort of relief from that, at least most of the time.
So, what’s the plan, Stan? Well, the NCAA Final Four is this weekend and the Frozen Four is next weekend, the MLB season just started, and the NFL Draft is later this month. The World Cup is also this summer and may not be as big of a deal in the U.S. this year because the effin’ U.S. Men’s National Team failed to qualify. Most importantly, the Bs are a legitimate contender and the Cs will hopefully make a run in the playoffs as well.
Who knows what news will happen this year that will cause me to comment. What IS known is winter is NOT coming this summer. That sucks. Oh well!
I hope to be more active in posting blogs and also will try to get Sween Dog, and others to contribute as well. If you are interested in writing for the site, we offer no compensation and the hope of maybe a few people reading these posts but only if YOU like, share, retweet, print and drop-off at train stations, airports, doctors’ offices, etc. please DM us via Twitter or message us in Facebook.
That’s all for now! See ya!
