Chicken Wars Continue!

I had intended to blog primarily about politics, economic theory, and religious commentary chok full of polemic dialectics and angry diatribes, but I found that it’s more fun to blog about pool. So dammit, here we go. My mortal enemy Dave Marion took a 3-1 lead in the chicken wars the other day (I didn’t […]

Introversion, Materialism, and the Existentialist Dilemma

I’m not opposed to materialism. I’ve just never been one for wanting to have all kinds of stuff (nice car, fly gear, etc.) Therefore I’ve never had a 20 year financial plan, a five year plan, or even a one month plan. As long as I had enough money to do the things I wanted […]

Mexi Changeover

The MexiMuslim is undergoing a metamorphasis. Beer drinking mode is set to ‘off’. Cue stick attatchment will not be enabled. Exercising and reading of computer manuals and literature classics is set to full steam ahead. Negativity vanishing, replaced with Truth, Justice, and the Pursuit of. . . . of. . .. .. damn. Here’s where […]

Bucket’a Chicken Wars!

The Bucket’a Chicken Wars have begun! Last night, unbeknownst to the rest of the free world, but beknownst to those of us at Leroy’s, my sworn enemy Dave Marion and I began a marathon race to 100 game pool contest for the highest of stakes: a bucket of Popeye’s Chicken (Dave, if you’re reading this, […]

Feed the Homeless?

I have a question. Why is it that whenever some corporation or multi zillionaire individual decides to invest in some megabucks business venture, you’ve always got some clown on the sidelines saying ‘oh with that kind of money you could have set up a soup kitchen to feed the homeless!’ ? Two issues actually. I’m […]

Child Support

Supporting children? That sounds like a good thing, doesn’t it? That’s one way of putting it. Or you could call it “Government sponsored stealing to encourage divorce and reward people who break up families by giving them money they didn’t earn in order to subsidize single parenthood because apparantly there aren’t enough children who are […]

Victory

Evil Leroy’s team has been vanquished. Good Leroy’s team (my team) prevailed 3 rounds to 1 settling once and for all who is the better team. That is unless we play them on position night in which case it will be settled once and for all again. My team’s female player wore the “Nice Rack” […]

Game Day

It is grudge match day as my pool team, Leroy’s team 12 plays againt the evil Leroy’s team for our only scheduled match against each other this season. A lot is at stake, not only because our teams are right next to each other in the league standings but also bragging rights and my own […]

Mixing Pot

Lansing Michigan must be the Mixed People Capitol of the World. I’ve spent the past week hanging out with this biracial girl (black and white). The other night we were hanging out and ran into my half brother’s half sister Marissa (black and Mexican). Then things started going kind of wrong so I was commiserating […]

Immoral

This lesbian couple was just married Thursday in San Fransisco, the first time that gay couples were ever issued marriage licenses. This marriage is just wrong. They’re too old to be married.
