So Now We Know The Saga Of The Summer For Arsenal

So Now We Know The Saga Of The Summer For Arsenal

Yesterday, The Daily Telegraph posted a story from Paul Heyward that Paris Saint-Germain’s “most senior figures” had revealed to other club officials that they had managed to convince Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal to take over for Carlo Ancelotti at the Parisian club.  The story goes to imply that Wenger, who has never broken a […]

Postscript on the 2013 NFL Draft (And Some Thoughts on the Saints)

Postscript on the 2013 NFL Draft (And Some Thoughts on the Saints)

As I said on the Mock Draft post, things were wide open.  And with no franchise-caliber QB out in the open, the run on offensive tackles kicked things off.  Eric Fisher, Luke Joeckel and Lane Johnson went 1, 2 and 4 in quick succession, with the big surprise that Miami traded up to the 3rd […]

Game of Thrones: Judgments & “Kissed by Fire”

Game of Thrones: Judgments & “Kissed by Fire”

Halfway through Season 3.  This season is flying by.  After this, things should ratchet up fast for all the characters involved in this tale.  This episode pushed the story while giving us various methods of judging others.  Judgment speaks to more than just a verdict.  It’s about having a keenness; an insight into the truth […]

I was going to call this piece a review, but I realized that, by now, everyone’s played the game and they don’t need another review heaping even more praise on this game.  Suffice it to say, if you have not played it, stop what you’re doing, go buy it (or borrow it from a friend), […]

2013 NFL Mock Draft

OK, before I begin, let me just say: THIS is for entertainment purposes only.  In short, don’t take any of this seriously.  Unless I get it most of it right.  Then expect me to print it out and hand it out to total strangers on the streets to prove my capacities as a Prognostidamus. Also, […]

Game of Thrones: Redefinitions of Self & “And Now His Watch Is Ended”

Game of Thrones: Redefinitions of Self & “And Now His Watch Is Ended”

What defines you?  What makes you you?  If you lost it, would you still be you? Last week’s episode ended in the swift and brutal severing of Jaime Lannister’s sword hand.  For a man renowned throughout the Kingdoms as the greatest swordsman, this is a tough loss – as we get to see this week […]

Game of Thrones: Strategies & “Walk of Punishment”

Game of Thrones: Strategies & “Walk of Punishment”

If you want to survive, you better have a plan.  If you want to keep your subjugated crowds subjugated, you better have a plan.  If you want to destroy your enemies, you better have a plan.  If you want to be king, you better have a plan.  Unfortunately, for many of the characters in Game […]
