The Genius of Bob Hope....

From DA to President?

There is a lot of buzz developing around Fred Thompson in the blogosphere. He is raising his profile in the conservative ecosystem with new radio segments and a column in the National Review. At a time in which the probable candidates are so unattractive to the majority of Republicans, (they remind me of the field in 1996 when Sen. Dole ended up being the default candidate) he is becoming more and more attractive. I prefer him to anybody who has entered the race so far. It'll be interesting to see what happens this fall if none of the current candidates have established themselves. Thompson could bring enormous energy to the party.

Thompson/Rice in 2008!

HDTV and Football

The difference in picture between an analog signal and HDTV (especially 1080) is really dramatic. In the Phili/NY game for instance, on analog, the field looks bad. However with HDTV you can see how really awful it is. The center of the field is basically bare dirt. As HD takes over, groundskeepers are going to have to really get their act together to keep their fields presentable.

Beware the Dangers of HDTV!

I was watching Battlestar Galactica on my new HDTV today, and had a horrible experience. I'm scarred for life. Take my advice, and be extremely careful with HDTV. Today I was presented with a close of Edward James Olmos in HD. Not a pretty sight!

Fiesta Bowl 2007

Now that was a great game. It looked like that game was over at least four different times. The Boise State coach played to win, and not tie in overtime. That game was what college football should be all about. I was literally speechless the last 3:00 of regulation and through overtime. The house could have burned down around me.

The BCS game next week is going to have a tough job of living up to the Rose Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl today. Hopefully it won't seem like an anti-climax.

Tony Blair One Ups Bill Clinton!

Who needs a saxophone?

Fight On 2007!

Woo Hoo! USC wins the Rose Bowl! 32-18! USC has to be the pre-season #1 for next year (especially if they can convince Jarrett to come back) The defense played great, and the offensive line redeemed themselves. Remember folks, this was supposed to be a re-building year.

Tommy Flanagan Returns....

There are two new Taco Bell commercials out that are homages (with a twist) to Lovitz's SNL character. Instead of Morgan Fairchild the woman has been updated to Carmen Electra. The twist is, his friends think he's lying, but Carmen shows up to show he's telling the truth. Pretty good idea if you are trying to appeal to the 30 to 40 year old crowd.
