"Ketchup" and "Trivia"

I just don't have the time to concoct forays into the infantile like I once did. We misses it we do. It's me precious. Or something like that.

Anyhoo. The Falcons play against the Rams today. Looking for our first victory of the season-including the preseason. Methinks we do it.

Johnny Football was unable to pull a hare out of his butt-rabbit out of his hat-in losing to the Tide yesterday. I'm waiting with baited breath for the SEC championship game where the Dawgs demolish the Crimson.

My pick for the Super Bowl. The NY Jets, of course. Maybe we should rethink this one.

Forays into the infantile was coined by yours truly. Speaking of coinage, my son reminded me that he once worked with me on a Rowdy Kids Nite at Hell Whole back in the day. And it was definitely rowdy every Thursday nite. And whatever happened to Briggs, my dm. A man's got to know his limitations.

Speaking of Briggs, here's an old story from back in the day-written by yours truly while helping out  Alan Smithee, who happened to be an alias of mine.
