  • Parrothead hanging his head again!

    Brett Favre made one more impossible throw, zinging a touchdown pass in the fading seconds. Too bad for the Minnesota Vikings, that merely put them into overtime.

    The Vikings lost again Monday night, beaten by the Chicago Bears 36-30 when Jay Cutler tossed a 39-yard strike to Devin Aromashodu. Minnesota fell for the third time in four games, and the defeat gave the New Orleans Saints homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

    I know that Scott Wagner is very happy with this news and is walking around proudly sporting his Chicago Bears T-Shirt.  As a Vikings fan, this concerns me.  I also wonder how much sleep I have lost over the years because of this football team.  Why do I continue to put up with this year after year?

  • Christmas!

    My mom and I


    I hope you had a very merry Christmas and had a chance to spend time with your family.  2009 has been an interesting year for me to say the least.  In March of 2009, I was admitted to the hospital and spent the better part of two months in and out of there.  This was a very scary time and being sick surely puts life in perspective for you.  I couldn't have made it through the ordeal without my family and especially my sister in Kentucky.  I stayed with them for nearly 6 months this year as I worked on getting better.  So, it was extra special this year to spend Christmas with them in Kentucky along with my mom from Iowa.  I will be looking forward to this New Years Day more than any before.  The good things that came out of 2009 was a tremendous weight loss and the chance to come back to the great state of Michigan and work with the crew at WIN 98.5 again. I am truly blessed.  Hello 2010 and Happy New Year!!!!!!
