HURRICANES should NOT be named after PEOPLE – its EMBARRASSING and INSULTING. HOW ABOUT GREEK LETTERS INSTEAD?

At first I was amused about a hurricane named Sandy.  Maybe the hurricane could clean up DC or and there might be an amusing headline. But it is completely out of hand.  I am embarrassed more than amused.  It is enough to make me go back to my given name:  Elwood.  I like Elwood for […]

OLYMPIC OPENING CEREMONIES: MIXED BAG: Some POLITICS; NOT ENOUGH ABRAHAMS/LIDDELL and the REPUBLIC OF CHINA gets hosed (again!)BUT JERUSALEM was PLAYED!

The Olympic opening ceremonies are winding down and I did not want a nasty letter from NBC saying I violated copyright or something, so I did not live blog the event.  Here are my observations: Started out with a FABULOUS hymn – Jerusalem!  They sang it in such as way asfor many of us Yanks […]

MOVIE MUSINGS…OCTOBER (BABY) SURPRISE…the HUNGER GAMES and CHARIOTS OF FIRE remastered!

This sort of snuck up on me with all the election stuff and other things that take precedence over blogging but it is exciting and it’s better late than never. While a libertarian blockbuster (The Hunger Games) set all sorts of box office records or near records (about $150,000,000 in its first week in USA […]

THIS ARTICLE IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT TIM TEBOW!

Sometimes I read a article and it says exactly what I would have said.  Here is one of them – by Jen Floyd Engel at Fox Sports about Tim Tebow: I do not know if Tim Tebow is going to be a great quarterback. What I do know is I am not willing to bet […]

THE ROYAL WEDDING, JERUSALEM and UKIP

I was watching the Royal Wedding this morning and caught the very end of it.  It was a wonderful ceremony and my prayers for eternal happiness go out to Prince William and Princess Kate.  But there was a song – a hymn – at the very end of the ceremony, part of the recessional, that […]

I MIGHT GET IN TROUBLE, BUT HERE IT GOES…

I was not going to blog on the male wrestler who defaulted rather than wrestle a female.  Too risky.  But I felt it was right thing to do.  To paraphrase my favorite sports hero, Eric Liddell, in Chariots of Fire, if I blog, I blog for God.  (Any reader who wants to know more or […]

TIM TEBOW: AN ERIC LIDDELL FOR OUR TIMES – AND MAYBE FIRST ROUND AFTER ALL!

Jay Mariotti at Fanhouse came to the same conclusion:  Tebow in the First Round of NFL draft is great for the league.  I hope we’re right.  Remember, you heard it here at Virginia Right!   Tim Tebow may well be the Eric Liddell for our times.  Liddell is the 1924 British runner who refused to race on Sunday […]

TIM TEBOW, THE BYU WOMEN’S RUGBY TEAM AND BRIAN DAVIS

I wonder if the surge of interest in Tim Tebow in the NFL draft is a response to the Ben Roethlisberger saga.  In fairness to the Steelers QB, it might be an attempt to set up a famous person – or it could be as reported to the police.  But it’s certainly true that unless […]

BEST PART OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS HAS ALREADY OCCURRED!

By Elwood “Sandy” Sanders The best part of any Olympics (I wait for it every Olympics!) is the opening ceremonies. Each nation comes into the stadium with their athletes, one (sometimes the only one) carrying the flag of their nation, except for Taiwan, the Republic of China, our old ally in WWII until President Nixon […]
