NFL Films: Al Davis :Raiders of The Lost 1990's

The 1990s was for the Oakland Raiders, what the 1990s was for the Japanese economy, a lost decade. There was really only one year that the Raiders were any type of Super Bowl contender, which was 1990. And had RB Bo Jackson not of gotten hurt in the AFC Divisional Playoff against the Cincinnati Bengals, the AFC Final against the Buffalo Bills would've been a lot different but most of. The rest of the 1990s, the Raiders either barely made the AFC Playoffs or barely missed the AFC Playoffs but they were no longer a dominant team in the AFC or AFC West where they are a Super Bowl. Contender practically every year like they were in the early and mid 1980s or the 1970s or the late 1960s, mediocrity had sunk into Los Angeles for the Raiders and is one reason why they moved. To Oakland where they belong but a franchise thats as great with the history of the Oakland Raiders, should never have a lost decade.

Fox Sports: Video: Coach Speak: Brian Billick: Redskins-Steelers Preview

I believe the Redskins defense is going to have a hard time holding the Pittsburgh Steelers under thirty points. Which means the Redskins offense is really going to have to have a good game and not turn the ball over and make dumb penalties for the Redskins to win.

This is exactly why I love football, motto a motto two men coming after each other and bringing their best. Two teams coming right after each, the team that wins is the winner, the team that loses is the loser, two teams against each other playing to be the best.

Funny or Die: Cooking with Christopher Walken- Richard Belzer

Source: Funny or Die: Cooking With Christopher Walken- Richard Belzer

I don't know if I want to eat a meal thats prepared by someone who could star in the Walken Dead. Maybe if I was on death row and I knew I was guilty and that the Governor of whatever wanted to expand the death penalty for jaywalkers, which in the real-life is the most serious crime that I've ever been guilty of ( or willing to admit to ) than sure! I would consider having my good buddy Chris Walken ( who I've never even met before ) come to the prison and prepare my last meal for me. Assuming the warden would allow it and I couldn't afford to pay him off.

A least my last meal from Walken might save me a little pain from the actual execution itself. Other than that because Walken is so believable both as an actor but comedian as well, you almost have to take him seriously in any role he's ever done. Perhaps especially when he's playing murderers or like in True Romance where he played an Italian mobster ( even though he's not Italian and doesn't look Italian at all ) but that is just one example of why he's such a great actor because he can make people believe he's Santa Clause who travels on a flying sled to avoid Los Angeles rush hour. He's literally that great at what he does.

Fox Sports: Video: Coach Speak: Brian Billick: Redskins-Giants Preview

A great and longtime rivalry, Redskins-Giants, I've been around for thirty years of this rivalry, as. Far as seeing all of the games in this period, if the Redskins beat the Giants this week, then they probably are for real, if they don't suffer any more key injuries. If the Giants win, then they'll take control of the NFC East and still be the team to beat.

Tenth Amendment Center: The Great Lie of The Nanny State

Source: The Tenth Amendment Center-
Source: Tenth Amendment Center: The Great Lie of The Nanny State

Damn! I found something that I agree with Alex Jones on. One of my goals in life was to never agree with Alex Jones on anything because he's so conspiratorial and which makes that worst is that he says he does that for entertainment value. So asking what Alex Jones really thinks about those conspiracy theories, would be like asking someone who is not a physic who is going to win the Super Bowl 2025. Who is going to be President of the United States in 2040. If Alex Jones said its a sonny day in Phoenix in July, I would check the local weather report there. He told me it was snowing in Minnesota in January, I would check the local weather there.

But on one issue where Alex Jones sort of sounds like he's not a salesman trying to sell snowmobiles in Los Angeles in August or trying to convince an alcoholic that they need to drink more scotch, or an escaped mental patient, has to do with the big government nanny state.  The nanny state wants to run our lives. The thing that I would add to that, is that both Socialists and Neo-Communists on the Far-Left  and Christian-Theocrats on Far Right, run and support the Nanny State.

Imagine if Socialists and Communists were running America. I know its a nightmare for anyone who is not a Socialist or Communist, but you might have to worry about doing jai time for eating too many potato chips. Have to get permission from the central government and perhaps wait months after filling out a dictionary worth of paperwork, to get permission to buy a home or buy cheeseburgers. Because the nanny statists would want to first check the collective value of allowing people to own homes or eat food that is not necessarily good for them.

Now imagine if the Christian-Right took over America and were successful in turing America into a Western Christian version of Iran. I know,  might as well imagine doing time in solitary confinement at a superman prison in Alaska or some place, perhaps Siberia. A nightmare you would only want for your best enemies. We again would have to fill out a year's supply of paperwork in order to see some movie that Christian-Conservatives view as immoral. Or listen to music, or worry about law enforcement breaking into our homes because we're hanging out with someone other than our spouses.

The only people in the world who need a big government nanny state, are mentally retarded people and mental patients, who simply don't have the mental capability to make their own personal decisions. So what happens is that those decisions get left up to the state or their families, to make those decisions for them. But that is a tiny percentage of the country and just because Americans voters seem to have this addiction to voting for people who don't represent their best interests, doesn't mean they can make the most basic fundamental decisions about their everyday lives. It just means they're dumb voters.

FOX Sports: Video: Coach Speak: Brian Billick: Losing Lewis Means More Offense

I'm not sure the Ravens will get past the losses of Ray Lewis and LeDarious Webb. The defense was already struggling and they've given 200 yards rushing in now back to back weeks, with Lewis and Webb. Now they'll have to get even more out of the offense and someone is going to have to step up defensively or the Ravens can forget about the Super Bowl in 2012.

My favorite U2 song and I'm not a huge U2 fan but I love this song because of the candor it. About someone who hasn't found what they are looking for in life, not completely satisfied with their life. And still looking for it, whatever it is to make their lives complete.

New York Post: Video: Yankees Face Orioles: ALDS Preview Starting Sunday

I'm looking forward to the New York Yankees, Orioles Division Series for several reasons. For one as someone whose been an Orioles fan since 1983, this is my 30th season as an Orioles fan. I remember when the Orioles-Yankees Rivalry was a real thing, never as big as the Yankees-Red Sox Rivalry. But historically the second best rivalry in the American League, at least in the last forty years, they were involved in several AL East races in the the 1970s and 80s, from 1976-82. Or 83, the Yankees won five AL East Championships during this period, 76,77,78, 80 and 81, the Orioles. Won the AL East in 1979 and 83, the Yankees won four American League Championships, the Orioles won two, 79 and 83, the Yankees won two World Series in this period, 77 and 78, the Orioles. Won one in 1983, even after both franchises took a step back in the late 80s, the rivalry was still good and both were involved the AL East race in 1989, these teams have played a lot of great. Games over the years with great players, Hall of Fame players on both teams, Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken for the Orioles, as well as Jim Palmer, the Yankees with Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield. Rickey Henderson and Don Mattingly who I believe should be in the Hall of Fame and the rivalry remerges in the mid and late 1990s, when both teams were good again and being involved in the AL East race in 1996 and 97, each team winning the division.

Another great thing about the Yankees-Orioles Rivalry, is that both teams are fairly close by, about a three hour train ride. Or even drive and fans of both teams go to each others games, now in the last fifteen years, the Orioles have been horrible at least record wise, so we've seen about. As many Yankees fans at Yankee Orioles games in Baltimore, then we see Orioles fans but hopefully thats changing now, with the Orioles having a great year, the Orioles are going to be good. For a while and are built for last and have the manager in Buck Showwalter to take them all the way, so the Orioles are going to around a while, especially if they lockup their young talent. They'll have a very good pitching staff for a long time as well and a good defense, especially since. They've picked up Nate McCloth and have him of left field and brought up 3B Manny Machado whose only twenty and moved Mark Reynolds to first base, where he could. End up winning a Gold Glove there, with the way he's played this year.

The last fourteen years, the Yankees have killed the Orioles record wise but they've won a lot of close. Games against them in this period as well, in 2012 they split the season series and the Orioles I believe have figured out how to play the Yankees, with solid starting pitching, not. Making mistakes and hanging pitches, getting up early and then turning it over to their great bullpen, this is why I believe the Orioles have a very good shot in this series and with the. First two games being at home, Oriole Park will be crazy and the Orioles will have an opportunity, to take a lot of momentum to New York, especially if they win the first two.

Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears were missing out on a lot by not having Devin Hester play a bigger role in the Bears offense. He's a threat score whenever he has the ball, running, receiving, or returning.
