random thoughts for monday november 22nd, 2010



1.  tennis great BILLIE JEAN KING turns 67 today…..she, of course, is one of the greatest players to ever step on the court….here’s a couple of older picture of BILLIE JEAN KING…

remember the “BATTLE OF THE SEXES?”  tennis star BOBBY RIGGS said that women couldn’t play tennis as good as men, because they didn’t have the right attributes….well, BILLIE JEAN KING showed him…she beat him in THREE STRAIGHT GAMES….

and here’s BILLIE JEAN KING today on her 67th birthday…

2.  speaking of tennis greats, this also made me think about CHRIS EVERT….i used to have a mild crush on her when i watched her play tennis…..here’s CHRISSY back in the day…

here’s CHRIS EVERT today…she’s now 55…and did you know that she’s dating golfer GREG NORMAN?

3.  AND speaking of CHRIS EVERT, it also jarred my memory about the butthead sports announcer JIM ROME,  who picked an on screen fight with football quarterback JIM EVERETT, when he kept calling him “CHRIS EVERT.”  JIM ROME is a complete jerk, and really showed his true colors in this flashback…


4.  well, i have to be honest, i didn’t see ONE PLAY of NFL FOOTBALL yesterday on tv…including my WASHINGTON REDSKINS win over the TENNESSEE TITANS… (my son TYLER is not happy..he’s a TITANS fan….)  anyway, i did see pictures of the game, and I LOVE THE REDSKINS UNIFORMS YESTERDAY….love the gold pants and the “retro look” from 1970…

here’s a shot of SKINS kicker GRAHAM GANO after his game winning overtime field goal….


5.  well, my WARNER MONARCHS just about did it…they lost their FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON saturday night to the ARLINGTON CARDINALS in the STATE ‘B’ CHAMPIONSHIP GAME in HURON….it’s really too bad to see a team lose like this, but that’s the way it goes…i am super impressed as to how classy the team is in handling their defeat….but i did find out something yesterday that makes this season even more amazing….

not only did the WARNER MONARCHS  “A” team end up the regular season undefeated, but the “B” and “C” teams also were undefeated…THAT’S IMPRESSIVE….ALL THREE TEAMS WERE UNDEFEATED…looks good for the future….nice job coach JUNG and girls…


7.  HILLARY CLINTON says that there is NO WAY she would submit to a groping by the TSA at an airport….hear that noise?  that’s the sound of sincere disappointment coming from all the male TSA members…

8.  an eighty six year BROOKLYN woman won a beauty pageant for grannies in NEW YORK CITY over the weekend….i turned the tv off during the swimsuit competition….

9.  the world’s longest snake, a 24 foot python named “FLUFFY”, has died at a zoo in COLUMBUS, OHIO…..the python probably died of embarrassment from being named “FLUFFY.”

10.  the producers of a movie about porn star LINDA LOVELACE have dropped LINDSAY LOHAN from the title role, because they can no longer deal with her problems….man, you know you’re in trouble when you’ve become too doped up and undependable to play a PORN STAR…


A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy. He thinks that he is smarter than the deputy because he is a lawyer from New York and is certain that he has a better education then any cop from Houston, Texas. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Texas deputy’s expense.
    The deputy says,” License and registration, please.”
    “What for?” says the lawyer.
    The deputy says, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”
    Then the lawyer says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”
    “You still didn’t come to a complete stop, Says the deputy. License and registration, please.”
    The lawyer says, “What’s the difference?”
    “The difference is you have to come to complete stop, that’s the law License and registration, please!” the Deputy says.
    Lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration; and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.”
    “That sounds fair. Please exit your vehicle, sir,” the deputy says.
    At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the daylights out of the lawyer and says, “Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?”
