  • Charlie Sheen

    ...You know what I like about Charlie Sheen?.....it's not his tendencies to go on three day binges....nor is it his affiliations with porn stars....nor is it necessarily his lavish parties that he loves to host/partake in......(not that these are necessarily bad things it's just that there have been many before him who have done all that and there will be many after...).....it's his way of having no sense of apologetic mannerisms when attempting to answer for it....i mean most of the time when a Hollywood star goes off the deep end they end up in rehab...then they run i into the waiting arms of Oprah and pull the classic..."that wasn't the real me"...card........not Charlie....he goes quickly into the opposite direction......he basically hits it from the ..."yeah i'm bats^&t crazy and i live for a good party....but hey....I am who I am".....angle......and that's what you gotta love about him....I mean even if you don't like any of his work....even if you think he is a complete idiot....you have to admit the dude has some cajoneys.....thanks for checking in as always!!! Rick

  • The N F L

    .....In just two days....unless something completely unpredictable occurs (which is not completely out of the question...you never know)..there will be a work stoppage in the National Football League.....seems rather harmless right now considering its only March and training camps at this poing aren't even close to being open...nor are we even close to opening day in the NFL....unfortunately, howver, it looks as though if it happens....it will be an extended stoppage that will not be over any time remotely soon....and the funny thing to me about all of this is simply that I have yet to totally figure out for sure what exactly both sides are in such a snit over.....don't get me wrong....it is obviously about money....it always is.....but at what point do both sides look themselves in the mirror and say.....HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH?.......my beloved sport of baseball went through a lockout in 1994 that ended up costing us the World Series.....and I honestly do not think baseball has fully recovered since...let's just hope that come opening day for the NFL in 2011 that the main source of noise in stadiums acroos America isn't crickets........thanks for checking in as always! Rick

  • The Ballpark

    .....Another day closer to opening day! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......I am so jonesing for America's national past time right now it is killing me!!!!! I can not wait to hit the ballpark!!!!!! Give me a seat on third base line.....a couple cold ones and some crackerjacks and I will experience the closest thing to heaven....I don't even care who is playing......it's BASEBALL!!! Don't get me wrong....I am and always will be a diehard true blue solid to the core Yankees fan......but at this point just give me some baseball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks for checking in as always.......Rick

    ....I am kinda torn.....actually very torn.....am planning on going to Memphis sometime in May....the first weekend of May they have their world famous Memphis in May music festival which will draw incredible artists from all over the world.....and the second weekend or so they are hosting the World Championships of BBQ....would love to hit both but can only do one of them......decisions......hmmm thanks for checking in,,,,,Rick

  • Ever seen a ghost?

    ...Have you ever seen a ghost?....or at least something you thought might be one?....I believe in em....I don't care what anyone says....there absolutely has to be something other than what we know right?.....I used to never buy into the concept at all...had to see it to believe it......and quite frankly I did recently have an experience that made me do a 180 on the subject.....freaked both me and Ozzie (my Boxer) out.........and let me tell you.....it takes something serious to get Ozzie freaked out.....anyways as a result I am definitely a believer.......are you? Thanks for stopping in Rick

  • Fat Tuesday!!!!!

    ....Mardi Gras came to this country in 1699 with French explorers....however it's festivities can be traced all the way back to the ancient Romans....the French explorer Iberville held the first organized celebration of Mardi Gras on our soil in 1699 at a location that was 60 miles south of where New Orleans is today.....he actually named the site...he labeled it "Point du Mardi Gras"....When New Orleans fell under Spanish rule the customs of Mardi Gras were banned....it wasn't until 1827 when New Orleans was under U.S. rule that they legalized the wearing of masks to celebrate Mardi Gras again....happy Fat Tuesday!!!!! thank you as always for checking in,,,,,,,,Rick

  • Beavis and Butthead!!!

    ...They are on their way back!!!..maybe you already knew about this or have known for some time....but I just found out and I am stoked!!!....Beavis And Butthead make their triumphant return to MTV this year!!!...I fully realize they are juvenile...shallow.....incapable of complete sentences most of the time....borderline braind dead on occasion......and for lack of better terminology....stupid.....but I don't care.....I think they are also FUNNY AS H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS!!!!!!!!....and i have sorely missed them......i think the beauty of what they bring to the table is simply the fact that they are so shallow/stupid..etc......when you watch them you don't have to overanalyze or over think things.....they are just funny...its that simple and that packaged.....they make you laugh....period....and I think MTV realizes what a commodity that type of simplicity is and therefore decided to bring back Beavis and Butthead!!!! I can not wait...huh huh....huh huh huh......Rick

  • Entourage!!!

    ....Welcome to Thursday, March 10th, 2011.....one more day closer to the return of HBO's Entourage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....rumor has it this will be the last season of Entourage.....which makes sense....they are on their 7th season or so.....I am a huge fan of the show and will miss it tremendously when it's gone....but I also understand it being time for HBO to move on...one thing that absolutely kills a great series like Entourage is keeping it around even one season longer than it should be......always go out on a high is what I always say!...Johnny Drama to me is one of the greatest tv characters ever created.....everything about what Kevin Dillon does with that character is nothing short of hysterical.....I mean who doesn't know someone who just takes themselves way too seriously?....and of course the fact that Entourage is oozing with hot...and i mean HOT chicks every week certainly doesnt harm it's case to be the best thirty min of tv!...any ways thank you for checking in as always.....and as Johnny Drama would say....."Victoryyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!" Rick

  • the Madness

    ....Just a couple three days till the madness begins!!!! any true sports fan loooooooooooooves this time of year!...who will be the underdog....the Cinderella???....who will be the giant who gets slayed by David early on?.......who will make it to the dance and celebrate by taking the entire enchilada????.....we will soon find out....and I can not wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rick

  • Words

    One of the most important lessons in life I ever learned was taught to me by Todd Conklin....he was my IPC (Innerpersonal communications) instructor my freshman year of college.....I will never forget it....the first day of class he walked in without saying a word and wrote F U (only spelled out) in huge all caps on the chalk board.....he then turned around and pointed at me and said.....what do you think of that?.....I said something to the extent of it not being expected and rather rude to say the least......He then proceeded to ask several other students and got basically the same response....at which point he said.......these are just words....nothing more....it is we who apply the meaning to them and it is up to us to determine the depth of that meaning based upon how we individually perceive their delivery.......in other words....it's not the words themselves that determine their true meaning....it's how you say them......if you hold a puppy in your lap and softley pet him and whisper those same to words soothingly to him over and over he will respond positively....yet if you scream at the top of your lungs the words "you are the greatest dog alive!!!!" over and over he will respond in a negative and frightened way.........they are just words........I will never forget that day. Thank you as always for checking in! Rick

  • S L A S H

  • Sweetness!

    ..Kansas has done it again!...they are the sole representatives of the Big Twelve as we head into the Sweet 16!!!....Let's just hope they can continue....as we all know the last thing KU needs to do is look past anyone....and I mean anyone...in this tournament.....Even though I am a true blue rock chalk Jayhawk fan, I was still saddened to see K State lose....as well as Texas.....as far as I am concerned when it comes to this time of year, I am for any and all Big 12 representation.....am keeping my fingers crossed as Kansas prepares for the Richmond Spiders!!!!...Thanks for checking in as always!.......Rick

  • night owls

    I have always been a night owl...even when I was a kid....I simply can not go to sleep until 3 or 4am most of the time....maybe i totally comprehend what James Dean meant when he once said he was always up most of the night because as he put it....he was afraid he might miss something.....I don't know.....Don't get me wrong...I am definietly not complaining...I mean Dean was right to some degree....a lot of cool stuff goes on late at night.....sometimes i will step out onto my porch and just soak things in at 3am....what I mean by that is....it's kinda like finding some level of spiritual peace so to speak.....everything is quiet....unmoving....no hustle and bustle....no pressure whatsoever to be anywhere or do anything that very second.....it's as if the world...or at least your little section/part of it....is completely yours and yours alone.....sometimes i will sit out on my porch at 3 or 3:30 am and before i know it 20...30 minutes have passed.....have i lost my mind??? Try it sometime when you are up that late......and get back to me on it by all means.......thank you as always for stopping by! Rick

  • Pink Floyd

    Pink Floyd Experience tonight at the Cotillion!...Pink Floyd is one of those bands that I never got to go see live.....and it kills me!!!! I love Pink Floyd.....very rarely if ever does a band come along that really.....really.....really hits something deep inside of me......don't get me wrong by any means.....there are a ton of bands who i can and often do listen to as often as possible because I absolutely love their work....(Alice In Chains/Seether/Shinedown/Stone Sour/many more too numerous to mention)....but Pink Floyd simply takes things to a level very few do for me....Its almost as if whenever i listen to them they sort of like just,,,I don't know how to explain....they just become a part of whatever it is i am going through....if that makes any sense at all......like I said...other bands do that as well,,,,but not like Pink Floyd does......I so wish I would have had the chance to see them!!!!!! anyways thank you as always for checking in!!! RIck
