In an era where politicians happily take bribe money from special interests in the form of campaign contributions (or in the form of bribes) and in an era where no media source, mainstream or otherwise, can be trusted more than any blog on the internet, there is a serious need for serious people to get serious about where they get their news.
In a world where facts have been put aside in the interest of being the first to break a story or where career journalists sacrifice major stories because their employer won’t run them or because it …continue reading
With the Saints having defeated the Jets, the matchup for this year’s Super Bowl has been set and it is exactly what fans expected it to be all year: the 14-2 Colts taking on the 13-3 Saints in Miami.

With so much of the country in rubble, officials cannot give a good estimate of how many people have died (the estimate had previously …continue reading
The Colts, Vikings, and Saints all have great quarterbacks and phenomenal offenses so it obviously stands to reason that the Jets are the underdog among the four remaining playoff teams. Perhaps, but in the past decade the playoffs have become a perfect venue for a defensive based team that no one takes as a serious threat.
A look at the teams that have made it to the Super Bowl in the past decade shows that 15 of the 20 teams that have made it to the Super Bowl in the past 10 years did so because their defense …continue reading
