Green Bay Packers (11) at Detroit Lions (35) 12 31 2017

Green Bay Packers (11) at Detroit Lions (35) 12 31 2017

They got to play indoors for their last game of the season when the temperature outside today is about 10 degrees.


A very aggressive start by the Green Bay Packers. They won the toss and decided to kick it and do an on-sides kick, which they recovered.

Detroit's Ebers (sp?) Sky Stepping after a reception was pure athleticism! It was like he sprouted wings and flew over two Packers.

GB Number 44, when the ball is in the air you always have an awareness of where it is and where it is going to be when you are on the field. You should have the mental ability to immediately determine that by a glance at its initial speed and arc. In other words you don't let it hit you in the head.

I looks like that aggressive initial attack by the Packers got the fury in the Lions going.

Time check 2:20 seconds left in the second quarter.

Hundley don't run the ball if you don't know how to hold onto it. A quaterback often wants to be brave and run the ball when the yards aren't coming. However you got to be able to hold onto that ball and not have it fumbled from you. Likely happens more when the QB runs up the center. I haven't seen anyone run through the center for a touchdown in a long time.

Hundley? The name reminds me of Hunley. The Confederate Submarine that was sank three times.

And that article there is actually more interesting than the football game.

Another interesting submarine.

What makes this all the more of a loss is that McCarthy boldly stated that he wasn't going to throw this game he wasn't that kind of guy, he was going to fight as hard as he could to win it, even though it didn't matter because the season was over.

Loved it when Matthew Stafford (sp?) tossed that touchdown ball straight up high into the fans seats back of the endzone.

So if I am a Land Owning Farmer and it is Muzzle Loader only Gun Deer season 11 26 2017

So if I am a Land Owning Farmer and it is Muzzle Loader only Gun Deer season  11 26 2017

Am I going to use that potentially dangerous Muzzle Loader, essentially a relic, an antique, outdated technology or am I going to get out my cartridge rifle and say, there is no way anyone is ever going to know the difference?

"I have a wife and family to support, I am not going to be potentially blinded by antique firearms technology?"

Oddly enough they want to take away the modern guns don't they!  It is like we have Southerners that want to refight the Civil War against us?  Gee Whiz could that be the hillbilly white trash voices I am hearing in my head all day long?

Invention Needed: A DSLR aiming peep hole sight that attaches to the hot shoe of your DSLR Camera 11 22 2017

Invention Needed: A DSLR aiming peep hole sight that attaches to the hot shoe of your DSLR Camera 11 22 2017

This would allow you to take pictures of birds flying in the sky and not fall down while doing so.  Because you would not have to hold the camera up to your eye to aim, you could hold it away from your face and align the peep hole with the bird and push the shutter button.

The hot shoe of the camera is on top of the camera and can be used to attach accessories.  But I have never seen a remote aiming peep hole or rod hole on the top of one.

I would patent this if my mind was distraction free of voices and I was therefore able to.

Green Bay Packers loss to New Orleans Saints (17 to 26) 10 22 2017

Green Bay Packers loss to New Orleans Saints (17 to 26) 10 22 2017

Brief commentary.

It looked to me like one of our running backs game out of the pile up and wasn't as fast as his own feet! You have to be faster than your own feet to be in the game. So all players should be forced to practice this next maneuver that I learned by accident.

I like to run up the Bradford Beach hill sometimes. But one time I decided to not use the stairs coming down it but instead jog right down the hill. What happened next is something I should have expected from a lifetime of experience but didn't.

I started to pick up speed coming down that hill. All of a sudden I was coming down it so fast that I was almost not able to get my legs out in front of me fast enough to keep from tripping on my own feet. Luckily I was though! But the hill was very steep. And it seemed to get steeper at the base as I was going down. But I didn't fall! And boy was my adrenaline pumping at the bottom of the hill.

A gal that was there looked pale white after witnessing what she just saw, me flying down that hill!

So they should indeed practice that!

Also the back up QB in Brett Hundley #7 looks to be a good runner! In fact he looks a lot better at it than many running backs in the league.

His long bomb during the first half that resulted in an in-completion looked like pass interference by the defense to me, but the refs seemed to be sleeping?

A tall quarterback does have a height advantage in the game, and to me it doesn't look to me like Hundley is tall. (The ability to better see open players as well as pass over the arms coming up to knock down the ball.) Correction, he is 6'3” but somehow doesn't seem it?

Whenever I see two strong teams coming into a matchup, one with the record of 3 and 2 and the other with 4 and 1 I often think that at the end of the game those records will have evened out? I wonder what the statistical odds say about it? Have casino ops ran those odds.

Short unrelated story. I had to move some boxes out to the car today for a Halloween event. It is raining outside and the linoleum got wet in the house. I decided to go downstairs to try and find a rain coat for a family member. I bought a pair of waterproof Converse quilted leather shoes this fall. As I was going down the stairs, which are linoleum with a metal tip I slipped.

People often say pick up this, pick up that, get rid of this get rid of that.

I do a specific type of exercise every morning when I get up. Maybe it is 50 reps altogether. And I am 50 years old.

As I was falling on the stairs my right hand grabbed the right railing. I had also installed a railing on the other side of the stairwell too as a safety measure for my aging parents.

Did I ever mention that I am tormented with infantile like voices that mock my every thought and movement?

There is a shelf on the left side of the stairwell. On it are some things I don't know where to go with. A large plastic jar of old floor wax. A plastic jar of leather wipes for the car etc. Some insect repellent. Some caulk tubes.

When I worked out at the YMCA and hit the punching bag there someone commented that my arms were hitting so fast that they couldn't see them move.

As I was falling my left elbow came out to the side of me. Aiming for the railing. It went past the railing to the shelf. It came down on the plastic jar of floor wax and the plastic jar of leather wipes. It completely crushed them. And leather wipe liquid flew everywhere. Even around corners where you wouldn't think it would be able to go.

I lie there stationary on the stairs. The falling movement was over. The jars broke my fall. I sense where my body is. My lower back is resting 1 inch above one of the metal steps. And I am holding my body stationary like that. My head held taught by my neck muscles to about 20 degrees forward. My head never hit the stairs.

I was unharmed. Not even my arm that broke my fall was bruised. I would say that 90% of people my age who would fall like that would have ended up with a broken back.

I am still reeling from the adrenaline rush of not being injured!

On Professional Boxing:

On Professional Boxing:

Should a boxer that intentionally twists his fist at the end of a punch for the purpose of:

1. Cutting the face.
2. Making a cut on the face, such as near the eye bigger and worse.
3. Causing scars, which are harder and therefore easier cut, to open up anew.

Should a boxer like that be allowed to win the match? I say no! I say that isn't what boxing is supposed to be about. To me boxing is about, speed, footwork, attack and yes knock out. It isn't about tearing someone face up so that it scars over and is therefore more likely to bleed in the next fight, again because the scar tissue is harder.

I remember decades ago watching a boxer avoid a cut eye on his opponent out of sport?

Illegal Performance Enhancing Drug use in Professional Sports 09 27 2017

Illegal Performance Enhancing Drug use in Professional Sports 09 27 2017
I don't see any difference between someone that uses Illegal performance enhancing substances and street drugs like heroin. Let's see if you can follow my logic proof.
The person who uses street drugs uses them to achieve a False Psychoactive Effect (FPE for short).
Heroin= FPE
The person who uses illegal performance enhancing substances (steroids) does so for two reasons.
A. To achieve more strength leading to better athletic performance.
B. The false psychoactive effect the drug has on mood.
Let's break down "A" above a little.
What does the falsely achieved better athletic performance only lead to? Perhaps more falsely achieved wins. And therefore a Falsely achieved Psychoactive Effect (FPE) again for short. So there is no difference. So Illegal Performance enhancing substances =FPE.
Hence there is no difference between the two. I don't see how you could ever look at the players who used them and see them any differently than that. The truth is that you have a disfigured brain due to parents drinking alcohol preconception or the mother while pregnant, from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome with no outward physical signs.
No legitimate coach would ever support that kind of winning!
Donald Trump stated that the NFL "Business" would got to h3ll if they did not salute the flag. Given the above prevalence it already is h3ll! Just as much as that freaked out junkie on the street corner is! Not only can you not be a legitimate coach, team manager or player to support that activity...more importantly a person like that could NEVER even be a good father to children.
Did you ever see the mean defiant look of a child that did something wrong and knows that you know and knows that you can't do anything to punish them? That is exactly the look on the face of the steroid user.

Green Bay Packers Versus Atlanta Falcons 09 17 2017

Green Bay Packers Versus Atlanta Falcons 09 17 2017

My Supreme right to Free Speech allows me to comment on anything that they say on that television no matter how much they want to object to it.

Started watching this game during the second half.

The touchdown in the Fourth Quarter was interesting.  The announcers said that if you touch the pylon it doesn't negate the touchdown.  But is that really what happened?  Didn't his left foot hook that pylon?  And in hooking it that left foot was out of bounds?  Did the right foot break the plane of the endzone?  Is stepping halfway on the white line of the endzone mean its a touchdown today?

When you look at all the instant replay checks don't you have to ask yourself a few questions?  How come the professionals hired to ref the game can't see that fast?  But more importantly should it really matter in a game if a referree makes a bad call?  Why does it matter?  It matters because a lot of money is involved.  But should it matter?  I say it shouldn't matter because it is a game and not work.  So how do we make it not matter?  We take the money out of professional sports!

Let me ask you this.  A monkey picks bananas all day long is that work?  Do we say a monkey is working because it is picking its bananas for the day?  Of course we don't.  Is it fair to say that animals don't work?  I think that is very fair to say that work can only be done by those who have a human conscience?

Do you want to know what the real difference between man and beast is?  Beast picks rotten fruit that is fermented with alcohol and has mentally retarded offspring and man doesn't.  Hence beast isn't working when it is picking bananas.

But the better question is why is any of this important?  Because there is a lot of money involved.

The filming of this game didn't look to be in a high enough frame rate video.  In the age of big screen televisions it doesn't seem right that costs are saved in some manner in some part of that business in that way.  It is a business and a game at the same time?  What implications are there?

The score is GB 16 ATL 34 with 6:51 minutes left in the fourth, can Green Bay win?  Very interesting thing about Aron Rodges is that he can put himself at a winning pace and make points back without being frantic.  And soon enough we get tied and ahead again?  Does it make for a better game or a worse game?  Sometimes we like it when the protagonist is nervous and wins?  But Arron is methodical and the points seem to rack up to a win at the end.  Perhaps that makes the game less stressful for the viewing audience?  You never really get to feeling like the team is down so much that they can't come back because they get on a streak and steadily score points.  I will give them credit for that.  They just scored a touchdown.  The score is now GB 23 ATL 34 an 11 point game.

So they can come back in game after game during the regular season, but they loose that ability in the play offs?  Which means what?

If I can't write about the game then that hypothyroid eyed guy in the fish market or tavern can't say a word about it either.

I think that the officiating crew has as much ability to adjudicate a game as an empty stack of beer bottles made into a sculpture by a drunkard does.  How could they?  Their work is based on play.  No integrity there.

Okay so why take it seriously?  Because it is ruining our educations system!  If I were President of this nation you would not have one dolt as a physical education teaching allowed in ANY school in our nation.  The most subjective and hateful morons you will ever meet in your life!  Make the emphasis of education sports instead of academic ability.  Enough of glamorizing the jar heads!  Act like they are the big strong men that would save our nation in a war?  It isn't true.  They go into basic training in the army and they are the first ones to cry like sissies and go home.  That or they proliferate the use of drugs in the military.  Which is another place for massive cost cutting in our country.  In fact we have a Constitutional mandate to do that!  We are not to have an Army in times of peace per our Constitution.  A lot of these problem people should be million man marched out of here, whether they are black or white.  No matter how angry acting like their momma they can get at you.

The army has a dress code.  Cut that hair short.  So how come the not the NFL?  Because people sued because it violated their ability to practice religion?  It is a little known fact that our Country was founded on the fact that we were not going to put up with the practice of some religions on us, specifically the Wiccan religion.  In true righteousness we hung them.  So why don't people sue to have long hair in the army?  Because in that case we are able to just put our foot down and say NO! The reason being it is unhealthy and also encumbers ones movement and sight.  Now you would think reasons like that would apply in the NFL too.  But why not?  Because it is a wiccan money controlled nation.  So how come we can't put our foot down and say no with regard to the NFL?

Don't like that I am commenting on television programs?  You can put that television on your shoulders and million man march it out of my country.  Most valuable possession that you have isn't it!

36 seconds left and the score is GB 23 ATL 34 and right now what I am thinking is that I would hate for a tie because I don't want to end up staying up late tonight to see who will win.

Did I mention that I hear a little slur in Al Michaels mouth.  It is either indicative of an angry old  curmudgeon or denture cream that ain't holding its own.

Atlanta wins 34 to GB 23.

When I buy a Wisconsin Hunting License aren't I really just putting a Deer or Turkey on a Farmers Table? 03 19 2017

When I buy a Wisconsin Hunting License aren't I really just putting a Deer or Turkey on a Farmers Table?  03 19 2017

What is the percentage of game taken by farmers on their property or adjacent public land to their property versus the hunter who owns no hunting land and must use public lands?

I will assert that it amounts to just putting a Deer or Turkey on a Farmers table.

And I have bee out on Public lands and have had drunks come up to me with guns and threaten that if I crossed over a non fenced fence line the owner of that property would come after me with a shotgun.

So how do we get around this?  Different rates for hunting licences for Farmers versus non land owners.

It is the same thing with up North Fishing in Wisconsin, when I buy a fishing license I am really just putting another DNR fish hatchery fish on the spear of a Native American and on his table.

We have had about enough of that!

Do you think Trump will do anything about it?  Do you think his sons ever hunted public lands?  We all watchted those Mutual of Omaha shows and know how that Safari Hunting works.  The white man who for some reason controls Africa through money drives the hunter out there in a truck with an arial platform to about 20 feet away from whatever it is he wants to shoot.
