Some Things Should Not Be

And this is one of them. Why this company would pay $9 million for this spot? Maybe they will only show the best 30 seconds and pay $4.5 million, but even that. Crazy.

Sitting in an Airport

Watching time fly by
being very thankful
thatI'm not flying standby

Okay, enough of my attempts to rhyme, I mean yes it rhymes, but I don't think it counts when it is essentially the same word. Oh well, I'm not a poet and I do know it.

I am currently sitting  in an airport in northern Kentucky, also know as the Cincinnati International Airport. Cincinnati, of course, being in the state of Ohio, not Kentucky. Okay, technically it is the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, lovingly known as CVG, because it is based in Covington, Kentucky, although some argue it is more in Hebron, Kentucky than Covington, but, I really don't care.

Now, I grew up in the Denver area, for the most part. My dad was in the Air Force and we did have to move around a bit, but we were lucky enough to call the Denver metropolitan are home for a great majority of my school years, ten of twelve to be exact.

Anyway, growing up I followed the Denver Broncos and to a degree the Denver Nuggets, I also liked the Colorado Rockies of NHL fame and while I was growing up we didn't have a MLB team, instead we had the Denver Bears, a AAA affiliate of various teams throughout its history. Growing up I needed a baseball team to root for and the Cincinnati Reds filled that need greatly, I mean who wouldn't want to root for the 'Big Red Machine' in all their glory, right? So, I like coming to Cincinnati to work, for the most part. I say fo the most part because I have never actually worked in the city itself, just used it's airport and then driven my happy self, south to Lexington, Kentucky, home of the Wildcats.

And now for a dramatic pause.

And that's my story, the end.

Sorry, I just got distracted by a dude cleaning the windows here at the airport and my train of thought totally derailed. Once that bad boy gets off the tracks, it's hard to get it back on. For that I apologize, actually what I apologize for is the fact that I am still posting this, with the hopes of maybe returning to it at some future date to clarify and give it an UPDATE.

Just don't hold your breath.

Side side note, someone just let go of the loudest fart in the history of farts, or at least they amplified it over the sound system.

Gotta love Cincin... Kentucky.

Addicted to Crack

Yes, I admit that I have an addiction, and addiction to crack.

Now I have only had this addiction for about a month, but I guess I am a little weaker than others, because once I tried this crack, I was hooked.

The spinning wheel, the multiple colors, the inanely simple questions.

It gets the competitive juices flowing.

Yes, I am talking about Trivia Crack, the trivia game that has taken the world by storm!

By world, I mean my own little part of it, of course. Some of you may have never even heard of it until now, so... You're welcome!

Gotta go, I have sixteen turns waiting now.

Thin Skin

We live in a world full of sarcastic people and I may be one of them.

Okay, truth be told, I am one. Am I proud of it? Well, I do relish in bringing bits of humor to everyone, but unfortunately, not everyone seems to appreciate said humor and takes what I say or write in a manner that is completely different from what the intended words were all about.

I also say that I don't care about people that are thin-skinned and may get upset by a misinterpretation of what I say.

Not entirely true.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I think people should be able to take as much as they give, and usually don't start giving until I have taken, understand?

So, Mr. thick-skin what are you really trying to say?

Not really sure. I think it was starting to be a rant about whiny people but then I lost my train of thought so now I'm just going to ramble on about the state of things in the world until something better comes along.

SQUIRREL!

Yeah, I went there.

Fox Hunt

My favorite sports team is the Denver Broncos, although I will admit that the Chicago Blackhawks seem to be gaining on them. No matter what though, the Denver Broncos will always be my favorite professional football team. Not to mistaken with one of my other favorite football teams Real Madrid or Manchester United.

Anyway.

So the Broncos have won the AFC West four years in a row, and for the last three it's been pretty much a cakewalk since we have one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, although I still think John Elway is better. :)

Pretty good, right?

Yeah, but....

Knew there was a yeah but didn't you?

Let's look at what that means, shall we?

  • 2011 - finish 8-8 wins AFC West (with Tim Tebow), they then beat Pittsburgh in OT at home and get shellacked by New England in Foxboro.
  • 2012 - finish 13-3, wins AFC West, lose the first playoff game (divisional)
  • 2013 - finish 13-3, wins AFC West, lose Super Bowl 48 (XLVIII if you insist)
  • 2014 - finish 12-4, wins AFC West, lose the first playoff game (divisional)
Both divisional losses were at home. Denver rarely, if ever loses at home.They went 8-0 at home this season, well 8-1 since they lost yesterday.

So, what to do?

I was thinking, as well as many of my fellow Broncos fans, that a coaching change was in order. Maybe get a coach that isn't afraid to take a chance, with one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the NFL under center. I am referencing Coach Fox's decision to kneel on the ball with 31 seconds left in that playoff loss in 2012 to Baltimore (Super Bowl champions that year). I mean Peyton Freaking Manning  THRIVES on occasions like that. When I saw it live, I couldn't believe that we did it, in fact, no one did. We also had one of the best field goal kickers of 50+ yards on the team at the time, so Manning only had to get them 50 yards, in 31 seconds, with all three timeouts remaining. Yeah, that game still doesn't sit well with me.

Anyway, as I got on my plane for my trip to Kentucky (hi y'all), I was thinking that there would be no way the Broncos get rid of Fox.

I was wrong.

Fox is gone, Del Rio (Defensive Coordinator) is gone, in fact, the entire coaching staff is gone. Personally, I would have kept Studesville (RBs coach) and who knows, maybe the new guy will bring him back - he did have some excellent running backs working for him.

So, what does this mean? It means that John Elway the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) gets to pick the next coach (true, he did pick Fox), that will help get the franchise over this hump, while (hopefully) keeping Manning playing, and takes them to the ultimate and win Super Bowl 50. 

What can I say, I'm a dreamer.
