Just had an exchange on Facebook with a lady from Texas who believes that Wendy Davis is going to be the next governor. As both of you are based in Texas, what are your assessments?

Denizens, maybe tonight I’ll have a football story on which to rant. Right now, there’s not time to do diddly-squat.
For now, we have Arlington Heights-Western Hills (I’ll take Heights, you can have Hills & 6, based on common games vs. Aledo (/snark)); TCU hosts the TU Shortdicks; Liberty is at Gardner-Webb; Dallas is at Detroit, and Houston is guaranteed not to lose this week – for the obvious reason.
Recap’s Monday or so; I’ll have more tonight.

Denizens, as you may (or may not) know, I’ve pretty much eschewed Halloween for several years now. Yeah, giving kiddies candy ‘n treats ‘n stuff is all cool ‘n all (when they bother even showing up) – but I’ve been fairly down on the goblins & spooks and general darkness October Thirty-Oneth has turned into in recent years.
That said…Great Honkin’ Cthulhu, check out this costume:
It’s been a heck of a day for bizarre and captivating Halloween costumes. But the first prize definitely goes to California photographer Royce Hutain who designed a LED Halloween costume for his daughter that created a startling effect in which the toddler appears to be an animated stick figure.
“She is 22 months old and loves wearing the suit,” Hutain writes on his YouTube page. “I’ll be uploading a video of her in different locations running around and doing her usual funny stuff.”
Is that effin’ cool, or what?

Fox News’ Juan Williams said earlier today that it’s Republicans’ fault that the Bambicare websites utterly failed like they did.
Yes, he really said that.
Yes, he really said that.
He also said that two-thirds of Americans want Republicans to ease up on criticizing Bambi & the Demoscum.
Why the hell did Roger Ailes ever think it was a good idea to bring this asshat aboard?

My apologies this morning, Denizens, for not posting this yesterday. Wasn’t time yesterday morning, and (as usual) once my avoirdupois ass hit the chair last night…zzzzzzz.
Anyway, I had promised that I was going to talk about Bob Costas and the “Redskins” controversy. And may do that in the next couple of days, if there’s time.
But there isn’t right now, so let’s hit the football. Arlington Heights trampled OD Wyatt last night, 54-21 (dammit, where was this group against Paschal?), so that’s one for me.
Today, TCU is at 21st-ranked Okie State (for the second straight year – grrrrr), and OSU is a 7½-point favorite; they should cover easily.
15th-ranked Georgia is a Vanderbilt today – and if the Dawgs know what’s good for ‘em, they’ll more than cover their own 7-point spread.
Liberty hosts Coastal Carolina in a Big South matchup – and, given how CC manhandled the Flames last year, the SpatulaLine is set at 50.
Houston…well, I know I shouldn’t do this, but since they tapped Case Keenum to start at Kansas Shitty (fuck you, Fatassed Andy Reid, you had no business beating Dallas), they’re back in the PFW this week, even though they’ll likely get their heads handed to them.
As for the Cowboys, they’re up in Phuckadelphia this week, where Mikey “Woof!” Vick is going to take a back seat to Nick Foles, who will probably shred the Girlz’ secondary a la Peyton Manning.
We’re back Monday for the recap. Now, if you’ll excuse me…I have to go work up a rant for Widdle Roberta Costas…

NFL coaching legend for the Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints, Bum Phillips, passed away Friday at age 90.
Prayers and condolences go out to his family, especially the six children including son Wade Phillips.
The rain and colder weather here at the Southern Command add a certain exclamation point to this sullen time. You will be missed Coach Phillips!

Seems that the cupid stunts over at Moron.org have clamored up something possibly resembling a set of soap-bubble cajones and are pushing forth this petition.
An online petition posted this week to Moron.org (edited for clarification – SGR) calling for President Barack Obama to “arrest and try House GOP leadership for sedition” has generated thousands of signatures.
Well, if you spineless weasels insist on going there then you best be watching your own bulbous backsides cause that just opens the floor! I had a worthy retort all lined up and ready to go, but I found this already penned.
I could not care less if they arrest Boehner and Cantor. But, that will not solve the problem. By these pigs saying ‘arrest GOP’, that is like saying; “Arrest ALL Republicans” I told you this would happen and it is.
The fact remains that the only person who needs to be arrested for treason and sedition is Barack Hussein Obama, born in Kenya-his father not legit, making HIM not our president…
Yup, that is it in a nutshell denizens. And don’t forget, Al-Obambi has more than TRIPLED our national debt in just over fieve years to where now it is about to go over $17T. Folks, that “T” for TRILLION. As in the number seventeen followed by TWELVE zeroes, aka 17,000,000,000,000.00. That fact alone is enough to call for treason proceedings in my book. Then add in all of the scandals like Benghazi, EPA, IRS, NSA, Fannie, Freddie, the Gaffmaster, and the flat out lies and utterly complete contempt for the US Constitution by the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, you get to the same conclusion rather quickly and easily as well. Not to mention, Al-Obambi is still actively trying to cram the so-called “Affordable” Care Act on us and all the while still not listening to WE THE PEOPLE when we say HELL NO!
Deniznes, the call for action has gone out time and time again. This time though, more are responding…like those from “The Greatest Generation”, our WWII veterans. Men and women who understand the difference between right and wrong, and what true justice looks like. Stay vigilant.

Item: Bambi today blamed the recent partial governmental shutdown on “meddling bloggers and ‘activists who profit from conflict’”.
Reaction: Where’s my paycheck?

I really have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand I never really expected this to end any other way than the way that it has, but at the same time the eternal optimist in me keeps hoping that our elected leaders will see the handwriting on the wall and actually fix our fiscal house. More and more I fear that the day when our entire government and society implodes is not far off.

Y’know, when I added Houston to the PFW, I should have realized that Wade Phillips was a coach on a staff of a team that was starting a backup quarterback.
And didn’t I just leave that party?
Arlington Heights 40, South Hills 16
at TCU 27, Kansas 17
at #7 Georgia 26, #25 Missouri 41
#12 Oklahoma 20, TU Shortdicks 36 (at Dallas)

at Dallas 31, Washington REDSKINS!!!!!! 16

Denizens, every once in a while I venture out of my little mac-and-cheese Comfort Zone here to partake of the Blogosphere. One of the sites I frequent is Twitchy, which follows stuff going on in the Twittersphere.
And, every once in a while, I will (ahem) partake in some of the discussions.
(You just know where this is going, don’t you?)

Denizens, as we start this very late edition of the Perfect Football Weekend (late because I said I was gonna do it last night, and fell asleep in my Comfy Chair again), I am reminded of this story about which the Vicar posted about three weeks ago or so.
(mock glare at the Vicar)
Anyway, he posted about it thusly:
The issue here is not homosexuality, it is the inability of a group of students to conduct themselves in a civil manner at a university event.
(This all ties into the PFW because there were Ole Miss football players in the audience.)
I’m going to play Devil’s Advocate and respond in kind:
In fact, it is about
homosexuality heterophobia. Or, to be a little more blunt about it, the constant shoving thereof into the faces of those – yours truly included – who don’t want a damned fucking thing to do with it.
I mean, really. As I have said time, and time, and time again – the issue with the sodomites isn’t that they want tolerance – I tolerate them sufficiently in that I’ve never given any of them the ass-whipping of their miserable lives.
Leave me be, I leave you be.
No, what they want is for you & me & everyone else on God’s Green Earth to say that what they do is okay. Just fine & fucking dandy – in fact, even preferred in some cases. Otherwise, why all the parades, the rallies, the beatdowns (sometimes even physically) on people who don’t subscribe whole hog to the blatant heterophobia?
And, as they themselves say in their little “NOH8″ screechings…silence is consent.
Now, as I understand it, the Ole Miss footballers were forced, as part of their curriculum, to attend this
indoctrination play. In other words, this was nothing more than “thenthitivity twaining”.
I would have disrupted the damned thing, too. Hell – I’d've kicked the ass of the bastard who assigned it to me.
On to the football. Phil Young’s Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets got their second win in a row last night, beating the South Hills Scorpions, 40-16. One for me.
Saturday, Gary Patterson’s TCU Horned Frogs should – I said should – get a gimme game at home against the U. of Kansas. As we know, Rock Chalk has been spinning its wheels for a few years now, which cost Turner Gill his job. (Frankly, I was hoping Turner could hang on long enough to coach this game; I was looking forward to going and possibly getting to say hello. C’est la vie).
Anyway, TCU has this pull-your-hair-out-annoying habit of playing down to its competition. And Vegas has the Frogs as a near-solid 25-point favorite, so Jaden Overkrom will have to win this one at the gun with his foot.
Also Saturday, seventh-ranked Georgia (See what you guys get for nearly letting Tennessee beat you?) is a 7½-point home favorite vs, 25th-ranked Mizzou. I like the Dawgs’ chances here, but not by too much.
UPDATE: And just for this one week only, we’re gonna follow the Red River
Shootout Rivalry Pink Taffeta Ballet Shootout. It is, of course, OU-Texas weekend, and since 12th-ranked OU is a former PFW team…and since I hate Mack Brown & TU with the purplest of passions…
Sunday, the Houston Tex-annes should – again, I say should – end their losing streak against the St. Louis
Ewes Rams Ewes. Hell, Gary Kubiak – if the Cowgirlz can whip them and you can’t, what’ll that say for you…?
Speaking of the Cowgirlz, they get one more chance to stay in this little soiree against the Washington REDSKINS!!!!! (see what I did there, you politically correct bastards? Suck it.) and Robert Griffin III.
(Yeah, I would go into the Second Coming bit – but as long as the pussies on the Left insist on making the Redskin name an issue, ARRRRRRR GEEEEEEE THREEEEEEEEEE!!!!! gets something of a pass.
They say Griffin’s still a bit gimpy. Yeah? So was it the case for the last game last season, and how’d that work out for the Cowgirlz?
We’re back Monday or so with the recap. In the meantime, my question for the Vicar is…what am I paying you for, anyway?

After many years, we’ve finally found the fatal error in Firefox.
Mack Swaringen @mswaringen
Not sure why, but http://healthcare.gov only works with Firefox for me. On Chrome, IE, & Safari, it’s stuck on the waiting page. #obamacare
3:11 PM – 7 Oct 2013
I anticipate a patch no later than Firefox 26.0 Beta 3. Which, come to think of it, should be just right around the corner…
