Sunday! Sunday! The NFL Football Championships! Two Winners go to the Super Bowl.

Kansas City Chiefs v. New England Patriots – Los Angeles Rams v. New Orleans Saints

As a kid, I watched Pat Haden, Roman Gabriel & Joe Namath quarterback for the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. And after 22 years without a local football team, three years ago, the Rams came back! And then two years ago the San Diego Chargers announced they would be relocating to Los Angeles. NOW THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND THE SUPER BOWL ARE ONLY ONE GAME AWAY! GO RAMS!

The Rams Win in Overtime is SWEET!
Pulling victory from the jaws of defeat, a lucky interception and a long field goal,
the Los Angeles Rams are going to the Super Bowl! GO RAMS!
Los Angeles Rams 26
– New Orleans Saints 23 (Final – Overtime)
NOTE: YES, the refs blew the pass interference call that would have changed the game.

And the New England Patriots also win in overtime, with a little help from the refs….
New England Patriots 37 – Kansas City Chiefs 31 (Final- Overtime)
NOTE: WE HATE CHEATIN’ TOM BRADY AND THE PATRIOTS.

“Enjoyin’ My Coffee”

Chinese New Year 2019 is February 3rd-4th in the USA!
Happy Year of the Yin Brown Female Earth Pig!
newyear-pig300

The Pig is the twelfth of the Chinese zodiac animals. According to myth, the Jade Emperor decided the zodiac by the order in which each animal arrived to a party. The Pig was late because he overslept, arrived last and ended up number twelve.

The Pig is yin. The Pig is associated with the Earth element and the hours 9–11 at night.
Pigs are a symbol of wealth. Fat faces and big ears are also signs of good fortune.

The Ides of March – March 15th

“Et tu Brute?”

Thanks to William Shakespeare and the play “Julius Caesar” we’ve all heard of The Ides of March. The story goes, in 44 BC a seer told Julius Caesar that his downfall would come no later than the Ides of March (March 15th). Caesar ignored him and later joked with the seer “The Ides of March have come.” The seer replied, “aye, Caesar; but not gone.” Caesar then attended the meeting of the Senate at the Theatre of Pompey, and was murdered by as many as 60 conspirators.

Gaius Julius Caeser (July 13, 100 BC – March 15, 44 BC)

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me? 
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, Cry ‘Caesar!’ 
Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the Ides of March.
– Shakespeare

St. Patrick’s Day – March 17th

“Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”

March Madness!

NOTE: We don’t like college basketball. We don’t like college sports.
Student athletes are taken advantage of by the university system.
College sports are a distraction and school rivalries cause division.
Corruption, payoffs and bribery are just 3 of the problems.
(see “pointshaving”, “Cheating” and “academic fraud” for more)
REMEMBER “THE FIX IS IN!”
