About bittersportspills

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.

Washing your Vehicle

The Interstate Highway System

I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned the Interstate Highway System. When I joined the military, I think I had been on three Interstates: I-75, I-85 and the only one that truly mattered, I-95. That’s changed. I’ve been stationed on both … Continue reading

Clear Source water filters

Many of you use water filters with your RVs. Typically you go camping and you aren’t sure of the water quality at the camping location. Most campers I see use those Camco filters from WalMart. I’ve viewed the numbers on … Continue reading
