Today I read a very enlightening article by Jon Carroll of the San Francisco Chronicle (Inside the Job Creation Scam). It touches on the marriage of corporations to government while shedding light on unemployment and the recession/depression.

As I write this, friends are texting Raiders condolences to me. One Raiders fan I overhead saying that Warren Sapp must've been right; the Raiders aren't good enough for the playoffs. Another one said he'd rather watch a blow-out instead of being teased and tortured through a game like this.

He Jumps, He Catches and He Runs like few others playing the game today. His name you've heard before, but the phenomenal plays he continues to make reminds us fans of just how "Sick" this receiver's skills are.
Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) won the annual award for most outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity.

So why am I posting on a sports blog about this beautiful Top Model competitor? And she's not even wearing her bathing suit? I'm still asking myself that exact question.
America's Next Top Model finalist Angelea Preston was on the brink of being crowned a champion when after commercial, the show aired an unexpected announcement. The judgment on Angelea was cold, calculated and swift as it was announced, without her being present, that the contestant had been disqualified from the competition.
As the judge Nigel put it: “It turns out that after shooting was wrapped, our production team and the network learned information from Angelea that disqualifies her from the competition.”
The winner would be Lisa D'Amato, who it appears has all the personality one needs to be a top model. Lisa said that her confidence comes from a very vulnerable place inside of her. I thought that comment better than the average Miss Universe canned response to pageant questions.
I'm sure Lisa will do America's Next Top Model proud. But as with top athletes who are punished for off the field actions, enquiring internet minds are twittered-out trying to learn just what the heck Angelea did to cause her disqualification at the last moment. Nobody seems to know for sure.
Eventually we'll get pieces of what actually transpired, if we even care that much to know.

Golf legend Tiger Woods won the Chevron World Challenge, his first tournament win in two years.
This is how I expect the Oakland Raiders will look on the sidelines next week when they visit the frozen tundra to take on the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. Frozen Zombies! What else can you expect when the Raiders were outplayed in all phases this week in sunny Miami.
Congratulations Miguel Cotto on your Middleweight Championship Title Defense!

"It sure ain't Christian," Dean Harville said. "It ain't nothing but the old devil working."
As for the Dog story, let's just say that rover did more than roll over when his owner's 12-gauge shotgun was left within paws reach,locked, loaded and .............unmanned.
For all the things hunters ask of and reward their dogs for, has it ever occurred to elmer fudd that just once the Dog would like to stand in his master's boots, pull the trigger and give the order to go fetch a clean kill?
Problem with this story is that the dog now standing in master's shoes has been trained by former vice-president Dick Cheney's School of Hunting, and we know what the second-in-command's idea of safety first and a clean kill were.
Shoot anything foreign that moves within your perimeter, collateral damage is unavoidable.
The moral to this story is never turn your back on a hunting dog with aspirations of being a master, he'll treat you like a dog and shoot you down at the first given opportunity.

Almost every team this time of the season is pretty banged up. It was apparent today with the Raiders running game sputtering and the Chicago Bears passing game limited much of the day. The game would be dominated mostly by defense and special teams.

At some point in your life you wished it, thought about it, and you may have dreamed that it actually happened to you. Well, after seeing what people who live past 100 years (Centenarians) have in common, you may not wanna live a day past 65.

Yes, a Cutler-less (7-3) Chicago Bears team is coming to the Coliseum to take on the (6-4) Oakland Raiders. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who was a former Raiders rival with the Denver Broncos, broke his thumb yesterday in a win over San Diego.

Today on the road, the Oakland Raiders scored 27 points in three quarters to the Minnesota Vikings 7. QB Carson Palmer and RB Michael Bush led the way for Oakland. Then came the fourth quarter and a scary injury to wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Who knew during the NFL lockout that our San Francisco-Oakland bay area would field playoff potential teams, much less Super Bowl contenders.
