The butterfly effect

I never thought I would say this about butterflies ... but what a buncha straight-up hoes!

Bacteria Make Female Butterflies Promiscuous, Scientists Say

This gives a whole new meaning to the term "butterfly kisses."

We the Knights, baby

Please tell me that I am not the only one who watches Knights of Prosperity.

I cannot have another show that I have become interested in this season become canceled.

It's true, this KP is probably more likely appeals to dudes.

But how can you go wrong with a show that features a culturally diverse cast, kick-ass 80s tunes, Mick Jagger's hats (which are, of course, kept in an environmentally-controlled closet), and Dustin "Dirty Sanchez" Diamond as a guest star?

You can't!

Plus, it's some funny sh*t (pun intended - see dirty sanchez).

How fitting ...

... that the Purple One ended the Super Bowl halftime show with "Purple Rain" during a torrential downpour?

Priceless.

P.S. - I am not ashamed to admit, I got a little misty during the spectacle that is Prince.

Super Bowl XLI

It seems it's a foregone conclusion that Peyton Manning will win Super Bowl XLI tomorrow.

Notice I said Peyton Manning, not the Indianapolis Colts.

Every time I hear a discussion about the Super Bowl, the talk usually centers around the fact that Chicago Bears quarterback Rex Grossman sucks in comparison to Manning.

This may be true.

Let's face it.

Manning has gotten the Colts through some tough games, only never to have won the big game.

But it takes a team to get to the big one. I understand that the quarterback is seen by most as the most important person on the team.

This may also be true.

But let's keep in mind that if the receiver doesn't catch the quarterback pass, the pass is useless.
If the offensive line doesn't block well enough to give a quarterback more time to make a great decision, then the decision he does make can sometimes be the wrong one.

And if the defense doesn't do it's job in keeping the opposing team's point total to a minimum, then the quarterback can often be in a position to have to play catch up.

Which I guess is why all of the talk focuses on Peyton Manning. And what makes him great.

The "king of the comebacks," he has shown that he can step up during the most harrowing of games.

No easy feat in the NFL.

So, I guess I have just folded and have to lean to the Indianapolis Colts to win the Super Bowl.

But I'm not putting money on it.

Prince of the Super Bowl

I loves me some Prince.

However I am a little surprised that he is providing this year's Super Bowl entertainment. It just doesn't seem like a venue he would be interested in playing.

I have to say, though.

As much as I live his music, I truly hope he doesn't have a wardrobe malfunction.

No one wants to see that.

Nice work, Punxsutawney!

According to my friend Phil, an early spring is on its way.

Thank God!

Listen up, Punxsutawney!

Please.

I beg of you.

Deliver us from the evil that is the snow and ice.

We need some good news tomorrow.

No pressure here, but we're counting on you to put an end this treachery.

If I wanted to live in Antarctica ... oh, who am I kidding? I wouldn't want to live in Antarctica.

So, come on, Phil!

Hook a sista up and make sure you avoid that proverbial shadow tomorrow!
