Merry Christmas, Everyone!

I hope everybody had a great Christmas. I love me some Christmas. You know, where we celebrate the birth of Christ by buying gifts and accepting them? I buy lots of gifts for the ones I love. My sister, I bought her a new laptop computer. I had to stand in line on Black Friday to get it. Celebrating the birth of Christ requires extreme sacrifices.

Like I mentioned, we celebrate the birth of Christ. Except we’re not celebrating the birth of Christ. Christ wasn’t born on December 25th; it’s some pagan celebration early Christians hijacked. Christ was actually born sometime in the springtime.

But here’s the deal: Christians might have hijacked it but secular America has embraced Christmas with all the grace of a hijacking. There’s a crapload of people celebrating Christmas who aren’t even Christians. Walmart celebrates the hell out of Christmas, because they are selling decorations in July. Did you forget, corporations are people too! Another example of non-Christians celebrating Christmas is Barack Obama. And no, Mr. Obama isn’t a Muslim; that’s pure idiocy. He drinks, smokes and eats bacon. If he’s a Muslim, he’s one of the worst ones ever. I’m not sure what he is; or even if it matters. Who wants a President, whom at a difficult moment says “we have to pray about this?” Maybe we should, but just as likely, we’ll get someone who imagines he/she is hearing God but instead is making up some ridiculous crap that fits their own selfish agenda. I’m not saying who that is, but it should be easy to figure out.

My ex is a Buddhist, but she certainly didn’t mind gifts on Christmas. She certainly didn’t mind insulting or mocking Christians either. Oh well, that’s how an ex gets on the road to being an ex.

I thought about working at a homeless shelter, serving food on Christmas Day. After giving it careful consideration, I said “NO.” Because it looks and is lame. You’re going to leave the comfort of your own home to feed the needy, then go right back to it and stuff yourself. Seriously, if you’re going to do that, why not do it on January 5? Or March 6th? Some day at random where your help is actually needed would be a fine gesture. How about doing it more than one day while we’re at it?

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
