HERE WE ARE!!!!

Image

i can only WISH that the following was true for this weekend!!!

Image

 

your blog is sponsored by PIERSON FORD in ABERDEEN….the end of the month is here…hard to believe that FALL is upon us…..(and dare i say the four letter word that starts with “s”?)  i just want to remind you that you can make it easily thru the winter months with a brand new FORD F-150 pickup…..and right now, the lease specials are incredibly cool…but they could change on Tuesday…..FORD usually makes changes at the end of the month, so we’re waiting to see…but you still have Saturday and Monday to take advantage of incredible leases on FORD F-150’S and our great lineup of cars and SUV’S….and with discounts of $10,000 to $13,000 dollars on new trucks, you CANNOT go wrong……

Image

YES WE DO!!!! come on in to PIERSON FORD in the auto plaza in ABERDEEN….check out our inventory at piersonford.com

 

1.  HOW ABOUT SOME WEEKEND FUNNIES!!!

 

does this mean that milk prices are falling?

Image

 

wow…if this doesn’t get to the students, NOTHING WILL…all i can say is “WOW.”

Image

 

i wonder just how many accidents happen in this area?

Image

 

poor old THOMAS THE TRAIN….

Image

 

and now a little FOWL language……

Image

 

i think this next one is such a CROC…..

Image

 

2.  okay…will someone please do me a favor?  GRAB MILEY CYRUS AND GET HER DOGGONE TONGUE BACK IN HER MOUTH….

Image

 

it seems like every single picture, and every single moment on tv recently has MILEY with her tongue sticking out….gross….heck, it’s even on a magazine cover…..

Image

 

enough is enough…this “clean cut” child star turned almost adult is in for some rocky days, i’m afraid to say….the kids who start out rich when they are little tend to have some troubles……(i could name a dozen of them right now)…GOOD LUCK MILEY…remember what MAMA said?  “your face might freeze like that.”

 

3.  OUR GAMES OF “CORNHOLE” JUST GOT A LOT MORE FUN!!! by the way, i HATE the name of that game…..anyway, my good friend KORY made these for my boys and me……TYLER loves the TENNESSEE TITANS, and my son MITCHELL and I love our beloved WASHINGTON REDSKINS….cool, aren’t they?

Image

i don’t know what MITCHELL is doing, but TYLER is improvising….he and his roommate TAYLOR moved their furniture around to be able to play these in their apartment……he is SO his dad…..

 

4.  did you hear the latest O.J. SIMPSON rumor?  well, apparently he is STEALING COOKIES in prison….yeah…that’s according to the “NATIONAL ENQUIRER,” and when have they ever stretched the truth?  right?  anyway, O.J. is rotting away in a prison in NEVADA….i was shocked to find out he is serving 33 years for armed robbery……so, let me get this straight…he gets off from murder charges, but goes to prison for three decades for robbery?  OKAY………………..anyway, judging from this recent photo, “THE JUICE” may be cramming a few extra cookies down…..and i hear he’s always “running back” for more…….uummm…yeah…..(a little football joke for you.)

Image

 

5.  did you see that “odd” moment in the WNBA playoffs the other night?  the PHOENIX MERCURY were playing my favorite team, our MINNESOTA LYNX, and the LYNX were blowing them out……at one point, PHOENIX star DIANA TAURASI started pushing and shoving LYNX star SEIMONE AUGUSTUS…..keep in mind they have been friends for decades…..well, after a little pushing, THIS HAPPENED…..

Image

 

that’s right, THEY STOPPED AND KISSED…and to add a little to this already odd story, THEY WERE BOTH GIVEN PERSONAL FOULS for their action….yeah, seriously……wow..if this were real life, it’s no wonder i keep fouling out…..

 

6.  WHAT IN THE WORLD HAS EVER HAPPENED TO KURT RUSSELL AND GOLDIE HAWN?  well, you’re about to find out…..KURT RUSSELL has just been tapped to co-star in the movie “FAST AND FURIOUS 7″…yeah, for those of you counting at home, there are now SEVEN of these movies that i’ve never seen…..so, being he’s getting a little resurgence in his career, let’s feature KURT RUSSELL first….

 

KURT RUSSELL was a child star, who apparently is the ONLY ONE that has never self imploded after being a child star…(i say that with heavy sarcasm….today’s idiot stars should pay attention to KURT.)  anyway, KURT got his start in the 1963-1964 tv show “THE TRAVELS OF JAIMIE MCPHEETERS.”  here he is, the little cutie….

Image

Image

 

KURT RUSSELL went on to do a slew of movies for “WALT DISNEY.”  these are just a very few of them…see how many you remember?

Image

Image

Image

 

one of my favorite roles from KURT was in the classic horror movie “THE THING.”

Image

 

GOLDIE HAWN, of course, got her start on the hit tv show “LAUGH-IN.”

Image

Image

 

GOLDIE HAWN has had some pretty impressive movies as well….these are just a couple of them….

Image

Image

 

and, KURT AND GOLDIE starred together in one of my wife’s all time favorite movies…..

Image

 

it’s great to see HOLLYWOOD couples stay together…KURT RUSSELL AND GOLDIE HAWN are still together…i love that…KURT RUSSELL is now 62, and GOLDIE HAWN is now 67….here they are just a few days ago……

Image

Image

Image

 

7.  if my 0-3 WASHINGTON REDSKINS lose to the OAKLAND RAIDERS this Sunday, i might be pulling out whatever hair i have left….actually, it’s not bothering me at all….i just told someone the other day that it’s crazy how you mature as you get older…….15-20 years ago i would scream at the tv, yell obscenities at the players, throw my shoes and pillows at the tv and so much more….and now today, when the game is over, i move on to something else…seriously, i do…i still have the same passion and love for my team, but i realize that it’s only a game, and the outcome doesn’t affect my day, and the sun will still come out the next morning……unless we lose……..

 

8.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

three pieces of string walk into a bar….(stay with me here)….the first string walks up to the bar and says, “bartender, give me a beer.”  the bartender says “no, we don’t serve strings in this bar.”  the second string gets ticked off and goes to the bar and with even more authority in his voice says, “bartender, GIVE US THREE BEERS.”  the bartender says, “i just told your friend, we DO NOT serve strings in this bar.”  so, the third string gets super angry…..he grab himself from top to bottom and ruffles himself to look meaner….he then walks up to the bar and boldly says, “BARTENDER, GIVE US THREE BEERS NOW.”  the bartender looks at him and says, “hey, aren’t you one of those strings?”  and the third string says, “NO, I’M A FRAYED KNOT.”

 

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT…JAY’S SENSE OF HUMOR…..HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND…

JAY DEAN

SOMEBODY WAKE UP THE CAMEL…IT’S JUST ABOUT TIME FOR HIM AGAIN!!!!

LET’S CRANK OUT SOME TUESDAY FUNNIES….

 

A MAJOR BUTTKICKING IN 3….2…..1……

Image

 

now THIS is an amazing tattoo….

Image

 

i am SO going to get this in my bathroom…I’LL BE SHOOTING 3’S ALL DAY LONG….

Image

 

hmmm..i wonder what this rhino’s problem is….

Image

 

okay…i have to admit…i completely laughed out loud when i saw this….

Image

 

well, you can’t argue with logic….OR YOUR STOMACH….

Image

 

DANG IT…..SO, THIS IS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS!!!!!!!!!!

Image

 

2.  I WAS SO SO SO EXCITED TODAY…..i was coming home tonight from work and i was listening to the “DENNIS MILLER SHOW” on the radio….he said that his next guest was impressionist RICH LITTLE….and he said that RICH was on the show to promote something that COMES OUT TODAY…..guess what it is?  it’s something i have been WAITING for YEARS to add to my collection……

Image

 

that’s right….all of the famous “DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS” all on six DVD’S…..you can relive great moments with LUCILLE BALL, RICH LITTLE, FOSTER BROOKS, JOHNNY CARSON, and, of course, one of the greatest entertainers this world has ever seen…DEAN MARTIN himself…….by the time you read this, i will have ordered it from amazon.com…..and when it comes in, i’m going into a DEAN MARTIN coma….can’t wait….

 

3.  i also ordered something else…..my cubicle neighbor by the name of CHAD…i mean, BRAD, was talking to me the other day about tv shows….and i mentioned that the one show that i’m sick about that only made one season was called “OUTSOURCED.”  we came close to saying the name in unison….that’s right, we BOTH loved “OUTSOURCED.”  so, not only my wife, my sister KRISTA and myself loved the show…….

Image

 

we seriously laughed our tails off watching this show.  and when we found out that it was cancelled after one season, we were heartbroken….oh well, now we’ll have the DVD of the entire season…….

 

4.  JAY’S MINI SERMON…..

please read this….

Image

 

i saw this the other day and had to post it on my church site on FACEBOOK…it hit home, because we always seem to criticize people for the way they act or talk or whatever….but in reality, EVERY SINGLE PERSON is carrying some kind of burden……there’s not a person in this world who isn’t struggling with some issue in their lives……we need to be nicer….we need to be more caring…..we need to be more patient……WE NEED TO BE MORE LOVING…….can you imagine what this world would be like if we all did that?  it’s mind boggling…..

 

5.  I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HECK I’M GOING TO DO ON SUNDAY NIGHTS NOW…..

Image

 

one of our favorite shows, “DEXTER” is done….the finale was this past Sunday night….my review?  AWESOME….I won’t tell you the plot, because maybe you haven’t watched it yet….but i will say this….everything that happened in the finale HAD to happen…..truthfully, i was a little bit disappointed in the very last scene of the show….i had hoped for different results….but, the bottom line is this….”DEXTER” is done…..it’s been a great run……another great show has run it’s course, and has passed on into tv heaven…..

 

6.  yesterday we had a couple of big birthdays………first of all, the legendary MICKEY ROONEY turned 93 years old…and yes, he’s still making public appearances…….here’s an early picture of MICKEY ROONEY, and one with the sensational and beautiful JUDY GARLAND, with who he starred in a few movies with…..

Image

Image

 

here’s MICKEY ROONEY today at 93….one of the photos is MICKEY with MITZI GAYNOR and comedian NORM CROSBY….

Image

Image

 

7.  and, we had a milestone birthday yesterday….sexy singer, and many women’s fantasy man, JULIO IGLESIAS turned 70 years old….how about that?  remember this hunk?

Image

you probably remember a number one country song that he had with WILLIE NELSON….

Image

 

here’s JULIO IGLESIAS today at 70….still looking pretty dapper……

Image

Image

Image

 

8.  okay…i’m going to share a little secret about myself….i think pregnancy is extremely sexy…..i find pregnant women very sexy…..there is something so incredible about a woman carrying a live baby inside of them…..the process of birth is no doubt one of the greatest miracles in this entire world…….

with that said….there are proper ways to announce you are adding to your family, and their are horrible ways of announcing  that you’re expecting…..THESE THREE ARE HORRIBLE….announcing, the top three most horrible ways to announce a pregnancy…….

NUMBER THREE:

Image

 

NUMBER TWO:

Image

 

and, NUMBER ONE:

Image

 

9. is it just me, or is it everyman?  I HATE FIXING THE BED…seriously, i do…my wife has been gone for the past five days, and i DID NOT ONCE fix the bed…..and then when i came home from work last night i had to wash the sheets and get the house back in order…..and, of course, after drying them i had to fix the bed…HATE IT….i just dread doing it, even though it only takes about two minutes of my life…….to me, when you wake up in the morning and get ready for work, why fix the bed?  i mean, both of us are at work all day long……we come home, have supper and crawl back into bed…..it’s just as easy just to pull the covers back up from the pile we left them in, as to fix the stupid sheets every morning…..our rule is: “the last one out of the bed fixes it.”  well, my wife gets up at 5:30am to work out…i get up around 7:00am, because after 24 years in radio, i can finally sleep in…..but, with that “rule”, i’m doggone tempted to start getting up at 5am and just head to couch to sleep to avoid fixing the bed…..(see how guys do that?  we create MORE work to get out of LESS work.)

 

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them
wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked
sarcastically, “Relatives of yours?”
“Yep,” the wife replied , “in-laws!

OR HOW ABOUT THIS ONE…..

A turtle is crossing the road when he’s mugged by two snails. When the police show up, they ask him what happened. The shaken turtle replies, “I don’t know. It all happened so fast.”

OKAY…ONE MORE…..(tasteless..but hilarious…ha ha)

A man is walking in a graveyard when he hears the Third Symphony played backward. When it’s over, the Second Symphony starts playing, also backward, and then the First. “What’s going on?” he asks a cemetery worker.

“It’s Beethoven,” says the worker. “He’s decomposing.”

 

HAVE A MOST AWESOME DAY MY FRIENDS….

524062_411754982257984_1033086767_n

2.  HAIL, HAIL, GO AWAY…COME AGAIN…..NEVER!!!!

our area seemed to be rocked with wind and hail last night….reports are coming in for hail the size of golf balls and bigger…..THAT will leave a mark…..hopefully the damage was minimal…..its’ funny how we can go almost the whole summer without a big storm, and then a couple of days before FALL…..

3.  a legendary boxer has passed away……KEN NORTON was 70….he had a series of strokes in recent years and had been in failing health according to a family member….KEN NORTON will best be remembered for being the second man to beat MUHAMMAD ALI…he also broke ALI’S jaw……here’s KEN back in his glory days…..

ADAM WEST also has a very hilarious role on the cartoon show “FAMILY GUY.”  he plays “MAYOR ADAM WEST.”  kind of a bumbling, fumbling type character…..

5.  also celebrating a birthday today is SCOTTISH actor DAVID MCCALLUM…he has a milestone today…80…….I remember DAVID mostly from the 1975 tv show “THE INVISIBLE MAN”….I don’t think I missed an episode of that show…..

InvisibleMan75_Complete_DVD_rev

he also starred in the 60’s massive hit “THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.”

I seriously didn’t know that DAVID MCCALLUM was a singer, too….

6.  if you know me well, you know that I HATE CLOWNS…..have since I was a kid……I hated going to the circus because those stupid clowns were there…..and even now when the GYPSY DAY parade is held in ABERDEEN, I freak a bit when the SHRINER CLOWNS come by……so, it comes as no surprise to tell you that I would be terrified to be in NORTHAMPTON, ENGLAND….there’s a scary clown terrorizing the town…..mostly scaring people by just standing around looking horribly frightening……I think he is taking after one of the most hideous clowns in tv history….PENNYWISE THE CLOWN from STEPHEN KING’S “IT.”

The-Clown-Of-Northhampton-600x450

7.  BIG SHOCK IN THE NFL YESTERDAY….the CLEVELAND BROWNS rocked the football world by trading their stud running back TRENT RICHARDSON to the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS….the good news is that they will receive a first round pick from INDY next year…..the BROWNS are said to be wanting to build from the bottom up, and if their season continues like it is, they would get a pretty good pick in the draft next year…rumor has it that they are looking for a franchise quarterback…..even though they have BRANDON WEEDEN, who is injured right now….so, the BROWNS will be heading to MINNESOTA this sunday with a quarterback nobody has ever heard of, and a running back that probably thought he wasn’t going to play much…….DO NOT be surprised if they upset the VIKINGS…it all depends on how CHRISTIAN PONDER decides to play for the VIKES….

8.  my darling wife leaves for LAS VEGAS today for a few days with some of her girlfriends…..(why can girls have girlfriends, but guys can’t have boyfriends?…well, I guess they could….)  anyway, four days alone for JAY…know what that means?  bowling tonight, and then my butt plastered to the couch every night after work…..I enjoy taking a quick nap when I get home…..just don’t dare taken an hour because then I won’t sleep at night….I may take in a movie, but it’s highly unlikely……

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A blonde has sharp pains in her side. The doctor examines her and says, “You have acute appendicitis.”

The blonde says, “That’s sweet, doc, but I came here to get medical help.”

OR HOW ABOUT THIS ONE….

A blonde sees a posting on a bulletin board that says, “Cruise — Only $5.”

She goes to the address on the back and hands the receptionist $5. The receptionist nods to a burly man reading a newspaper. He walks over to the blonde and knocks her unconscious.

The blonde wakes up tied to a log floating down river. To her right, she sees one of her blonde friends. “Do you think they’re going to serve food on this trip?” she asks.

The other blonde replies, “They didn’t last year.”

HAVE AN AWESOME DAY….

JAY DEAN

399278_549150821781548_1289674361_n

 

2.  well, our GREEN BAY trip was a big success……other than the FOOTBALL GAME….wow…my WASHINGTON REDSKINS got smoked by the GREEN BAY PACKERS…..it was something like 31-0 in the first half….we made it respectable with a 38-20 loss, but it still looked ugly……we made the PACKERS look like a SUPER BOWL team…..but, we truly had fun…I don’t think we could have put a better group of five together for the trip….well, other than my friend Sara……..and my brother TREVOR……anyway, here’s the gang……that’s my baby sister to my left…..I have my arm on her shoulder……

 

1074720_10151832042266904_717725899_o

 

one of the cool things was the fact that OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER star KEVIN DURANT was there…he’s a huge REDSKINS fan….he hung out for awhile over by where we sat……

1186673_10151946369109574_1441446894_n

 

even thought we got our butts kicked, and it rained from early morning until halftime, we had a blast….and one of the cool things was the fact that we sat right above where my favorite team came out……TIFF and my sister KRISTA about wet their pants when RYAN KERRIGAN came out…..in fact, my sister KRISTA screamed after she touched him…..and, we got to see the man….ROBERT GRIFFIN III, or “RG3.”

559674_10151832047101904_193707956_n

 

our friend TIFFANIE reached over the side and almost touched him…she said “I WAS TWO FEET FROM RG3.”

here’s a picture of the PACKERS getting ready for the mauling……

and, we had a guy sitting by us with a horse head on….why?  we didn’t ask…were afraid to ask…and still don’t know…….

1187203_10151832046756904_1236822932_n

 

3.  HERE ARE SOME QUICKIES FROM GREEN BAY…..

 

***I continue to be in awe of how nice people in GREEN BAY are….we must have had quite a few dozen people tell us “thanks for coming”, “hope you enjoyed our town”, “make sure to come back again.”  trust me…that doesn’t happen in MINNEAPOLIS after VIKINGS games…….

***here’s another blast of kindness….we were walking into a sports bar after the game to get something to eat….when we walked in, a girl shouted “hey redskins fans..you suck…go home…”  almost immediately, the girl next to her clapped her hands over her mouth and started shaking her finger at her……..a little while later, our waitress comes over with a round of drinks for us, compliments of the manager because of the way the girl acted…..crazy, huh?

***when we were leaving our hotel in WITTENBERG to come home, we stopped at a convenience store….when we walked out, some guy hollered at us.  he walked up and said “you guys had a pretty tough day yesterday. here’s something for you.”  and he gave us a big package of cheese curds….seriously?  these people are amazing…….

***in case you’ve never been to GREEN BAY, it’s awesome…I’ve been told it’s smaller than SIOUX FALLS and has a legendary stadium and legendary team…how about that?  when you enter the town it’s like driving into any town in SOUTH DAKOTA that has around 10,000 people in it…..it’s crazy…..and a beautiful town, too….

***the legendary LAMBEAU FIELD is right smack in the middle of a residential area……all of the neighbors make a killing by having people park on their lawns…yeah, ON THEIR LAWNS…they usher people to the back yard and start filling up……just think, a person could make a few hundred dollars eight sundays a year just for letting people park in your yard…..

***the tailgating was fun….other than the constant rain….we met REDSKINS fans from all over the country….great people…we even sang the fight song “HAIL TO THE REDSKINS” a few times…..

 

4.  I WAS ON TV….that’s right, I was interviewed before the game on the REDSKINS name controversy…..it was FOX 11 out of GREEN BAY if you want to go to their website and watch the video…I don’t want to post it here, because it’s such a “HOT TOPIC.”  I don’t want to alienate anybody with my views, and I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable who disagrees with me…..just feel free to go to their website and find the video…..

 

5.  another cool thing….we got to see GREEN BAY PACKERS legendary quarterback BART STARR….yep…he was there with some of the other members of the 1967 team…..he stood right below us…he looks great, by the way….BART STARR is now  79…he will be 80 in January…..

6.  I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS SUNDAY NIGHT….it will be the series finale for “DEXTER” on SHOWTIME….I couldn’t sleep last night, so I got up around 1am and watched the second to last episode from this past sunday night…AWESOME…and it completely sets it up for an incredible finale this sunday night…..i’m going to miss “DEXTER”, but the show ending will save us some money…..after this sunday, we have no reason to keep SHOWTIME on DIRECTV…..ha ha……

7.  if you know anything about me, you will know that HANK WILLIAMS, SR. is my all time favorite singer and entertainer….yeah, I know…he died way before I was born….but I LOVE his music…I LOVE the fact that he wrote all of those songs with an 8th grade education….I LOVE the fact that he accomplished incredible amounts of success and then died at 29…..29!!!!  all of HANK’S songs were about his life….the real life events going on for him…that’s what makes him so special…..

 

well, I found out that my guy would have been 90 today…NINETY….which means, he could have still been alive today and maybe possibly performing yet if it hadn’t been for his alcohol problem……love this guy….

I cannot even tell you what I would do for an “authentic” HANK WILLIAMS autograph……

Most-popular-country-singer-Hank-Williams

 

let’s listen to a couple of songs by HANK WILLIAMS….here’s the ultra classic song “YOUR CHEATIN’ HEART.”

http://youtu.be/Jg2oR91_r5I

 

my brothers and I used to sing this great song….”I SAW THE LIGHT.”

http://youtu.be/xtolv9kM1qk

 

and, if you’re wondering what my all time favorite HANK WILLIAMS song is, here it is….”MANSION ON THE HILL.”

8.  teen idol FRANKIE AVALON turns 73 tomorrow…(Wednesday)  i’m sure you remember him….I know all you women do….

and, how about singing along to his classic song “VENUS.”

http://youtu.be/kqGwixEOshA

 

here he is singing it “live” recently….

http://youtu.be/iqrmRsL3U-4

 

9.  also tomorrow we have a milestone…actor ROBERT BLAKE turns 80…..at this point you probably either love or hate the guy…he was acquitted in 2001 for the murder of his wife BONNIE BAKELY….then in 2005 he was found liable for her death……..

 

however, his earlier life was filled with lots of memorable characters that people loved…ROBERT BLAKE played “MICKEY” on “THE LITTLE RASCALS” and “OUR GANG.”….

and, of course, everybody remembers his 70’s tv program with his bird………it was called “BARETTA.”

he’s probably best known for the 1967 AWESOME movie “IN COLD BLOOD.”

here’s ROBERT BLAKE today at 80……I had trouble finding any recent photos of him without sunglasses…I did find one, though….

he sure likes his cowboy hat….

 

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 
A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Sheriffs Deputy. He
thinks that he is smarter than the Deputy because he is sure that he has
a better education. He decides to prove this to himself and have some
fun at the deputies expense.

Deputy says, “License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says, “What for?”

Deputy says, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign”

Lawyer says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”

Deputy says, “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says, “What’s the difference?”

Deputy says, “The difference is you have to come to a complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!”

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 no ticket.”

Deputy says, “Exit your vehicle, sir.”

At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating
the ever-loving snot out of the lawyer and says “Do you want me to stop
or just slow down?”

 

HAVE A MOST EXCELLENT WEEK…

 

JAY DEAN

 

 

 

 

THIS IS HOW I FEEL……

hC5AD690B

 

I don’t usually get excited about the weekend because I usually work Saturday and Sunday…but, this weekend I don’t…and i’ll tell you about it shortly….

***by the way, sorry I’ve been so lazy and haven’t done a blog all week….i’ll try to add an extra dose of love to this one….(corny)

 

your blog, as always, is sponsored by PIERSON FORD in ABERDEEN…..okay….you need to come into PIERSON FORD today….our F-150’S are still $10,000 to $12,000 dollars off the MSRP….unreal…the people who are buying them are floored by the savings…..plus we have great deals on the other new FORD’S like the EDGE, THE FOCUS, THE FUSION, THE ESCAPE and more……..and if you’re looking for quality pre-owned vehicles, go no further than PIERSON FORD…we carry every make and model….about every color, too……to see our inventory go to the following address:  http://piersonford.com/   or call us at 1-800-627-1237….or, the best thing to do is come in and see us in the auto plaza in ABERDEEN, SOUTH DAKOTA….we’re located on north highway 281 across from SHOPKO….

 

1.  why am I so excited?   five of us leave early Saturday morning for GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN…..we’re going to see our beloved WASHINGTON REDSKINS take on the always tough GREEN BAY PACKERS…..truthfully, my positive feelings for the game have weakened a bit after I saw my REDSKINS play Monday night….but, they’ll be alright…they looked much better in the second half than the first half……..

 

we leave Saturday morning and we’re staying about an hour out of GREEN BAY…a town called WITTENBERG….and then, early Sunday morning, we head to the legendary LAMBEAU FIELD for tailgating….that’s right, we are meeting a whole slew of REDSKINS fans from all over the country…THAT SHOULD BE A BLAST……I’ve never tailgated before…i’m super excited about it…..

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

 

this will be my second trip to LAMBEAU FIELD…..truthfully, if you’re a football fan, you need to go to a game in this legendary stadium….even if your team isn’t playing or you’re not a PACKERS fan…it’s an awesome field, and the fans are incredibly nice…..seriously…I’ve never met nicer fans in any sporting event…….

and then, at noon, IT’S GAME TIME, BABY….by the way, if you’re watching the game, we’re eleven rows up in the end zone…don’t know which end zone, but we’ll be five REDSKINS fans in a row, all dressed up in our favorite team’s gear……..i’ll report on the event next Tuesday….

 

2.  HOW ABOUT SOME FUNNIES?

 

seriously?  there’s a sign like this?  INVINCEABLE? 

14f51a693a684a68b82f3343f3efe7fa

 

this one cracks me up…..

524492_410459839059903_1925910927_n

 

I am SO going to do this on my last night in our hotel room…..

537787_402929976479556_669492460_n

 

I know some firemen…I can see them doing this…ha ha…..

I hope this couple always keeps their flame going for each other…..

1157420_408949115877642_1243172947_n

 

a lot of things define me…this is definetly one of them…..

1173742_393092680818249_364140226_n

 

3.  okay…I don’t want to get “political”…..they always say that there are two subjects you never talk about in public….religion and politics….I just want to say one thing, though…..all this bombing SYRIA talk is bothering me…..what bothers me the most is the fact that it’s on the news CONSTANTLY….good gravy, WHY DON’T WE JUST TELL THEM EXACTLY WHEN WE’RE GOING TO DO IT?  if we do…….this is one of the bad things about 24 hour cable news networks……..by now, EVERYONE in SYRIA knows this could be happening….I always thought that when we do this there should be an “element of surprise.” 

 

anyway, with all the talk, I just want to say one thing…AND I MEAN THIS…..

1175323_10151879618468767_2094099647_n

 

I have never been a fan of sending trillions of dollars to other countries who have no intention of paying it back…..WE CAN’T EVEN KEEP OUR OWN CITIZENS OFF THE STREETS…..it’s time we keep our time, money, and talents home….of course, it won’t happen, but it’s a nice thought…..

 

4.  with well over a month until HALLOWEEN, I’ve done something I have never done this early….I’VE PICKED OUT MY COSTUME….

Ray'n%20Rachel

 

I won’t take the time to do this, but ISN’T IT AWESOME?  man, that had to take some serious time to get ready…..

 

5.  happy birthday wishes are going out to “SUE ELLEN” from “DALLAS”…i’m talking about actress LINDA GRAY….believe it or not, she’s a stunning 73 today…….i’m sure you remember her from the show…..

6.  here’s a little PATRICK DUFFY trivia…….do you remember the tv show that he was on for two years from 1977-1978….we never missed watching this show……

 

ManFromAtlantis_CompleteTVMovies

 

do you remember that he had those “fish eyes?”

patrick-duffy

 

7.  also celebrating a birthday today is actor PETER SCOLARI….you probably best remember him for playing the annoying character “MICHAEL” on “NEWHART.”  but, earlier than that, he appeared on a tv show with TOM HANKS…remember the name?  “BOSOM BUDDIES.”

 

tumblr_lpumdvvD9S1qir6s9o1_400

 

on “NEWHART” he played the loving sidekick of bumbling “STEPHANIE” played by JULIA DUFFY….(no relation to PATRICK.)

8.  I love when a horror movies comes out on FRIDAY THE 13TH…well, tomorrow happens to be that date, and the long awaited sequel to “INSIDEOUS” comes out…it is appropriately called “INSIDEOUS CHAPTER 2″….

Insidious_Chapter_2_Trailer_Quad_1_6_4_13

 

the previews look scary as all get out……

 

maxresdefault

 

the first one terrified me, but the ending was rather stupid….the only chance i’ll have to see it on opening weekend is opening night…the night before we head to GREEN BAY…I seriously doubt that I will be able to talk my wife into going….but, i’ll try……if not, i’d probably better spend the night at home with her, being i’m gone for the next three days….I can always see the movie when I get back……

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

The elderly Italian man went to his parish priest and asked if the priest would hear his confession.
“Of course, my son,” said the priest.
“Well, Father, at the beginning of World War Two, a beautiful woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the Germans; I hid her in my attic, and they never found her.”
“That’s a wonderful thing, my son, and nothing that you need to confess,” said… the priest.
“It’s worse, Father; I was weak, and told her that she had to pay for rent of the attic with her “intimacy” favors,” continued the old man.
“Well, it was a very difficult time, and you took a large risk – you would have suffered terribly at their hands if the Germans had found you hiding her; I know that God, in his wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and the evil, and judge you kindly,” said the priest.
“Thanks, Father,” said the old man. “That’s a load off of my mind. Can I ask another question?”
“Of course, my son,” said the priest.
The old man asked, “Do I need to tell her that the war is over?”:)
ENJOY YOUR DAY….ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND…CHEER FOR MY REDSKINS…ha ha…

THE NFL DEBUTS TONIGHT with a classic matchup between the BALTIMORE RAVENS and the DENVER BRONCOS…..

can’t wait to see football again…unfortunately, i’ll be bowling, but i’ll be checking the tv…….it’s the night all football fans have been waiting months for……

 

as football fans we have to say this……the season is awesome…the SUPER BOWL is awesome…but those LONG LONG LONG LONG months between the SUPER BOWL and the start of the season just drag……but, nowdays is better because of one thing……

nfl_network-logo

my wife asked me one day how I can sit there and watch an NFL game that was played months ago…she said “you already know the outcome.”  I told her that “it’s no different than us watching reruns of tv shows and movies…we know the outcome.”  THANK GOODNESS FOR THE NFL NETWORK…it’s been fun watching all of the TOP TEN SHOWS, plus I love the series called “A FOOTBALL LIFE.”  it makes those long nights feel shorter until the season starts……..

 

SO…..HERE WE GO…..

 

2.  LET HAVE SOME FUN FIRST…WITH SOME FOOTBALL FUNNIES…..

 

this one is hilarious…..

this next one is sad, but probably true in some cases……NOT IN MINE, HOWEVER….

AND……how could I possibly do a salute to football, without RIPPING APART “AMERICA’S TEAM.”  my most hated team in sports….THE DALLAS COWBOYS….by the way, did you know that they gave THEMSELVES the nickname “AMERICA’S TEAM?”  it’s true…..yet another reason to dislike them….

3.  the NFL season is another time for me to “regroup” my REDSKINS room at home….I have so many items in there and I keep adding to them….much to my wife’s dismay….anyway, here are two of my favorite things in my REDSKINS room….autographed jerseys from legendary quarterbacks BILLY KILMER AND JOE THEISMANN…..

1233360_10201795907236218_665781323_n

AUTOGRAPHED…ENCASED…..AND READY FOR VIEWING, BABY….

 

4.  everybody knows who i’m going to be cheering for……..

hi-res-157493734_crop_650x440

 

that’s right, it’s my beloved WASHINGTON REDSKINS….can’t wait until Monday night when they take on the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES….and it marks the triumphant return of one, ROBERT GRIFFIN III…or “RG3.”

washington-redskins-griffin-III

rg3-wp

in case you’ve been living under a rock, RG3 had a devastating knee injury at the end of last season…….and he’s ready to go, kind of like ADRIAN PETERSON speed…..if you watched ADRIAN PETERSON last year, you marveled at how quickly he got over that knee surgery….RG3 is going to set out to be the next miracle case….I cant’ wait to see how it turns out…..

 

5.  I get asked constantly the question, “how did you become a WASHINGTON REDSKINS fan?”  well, let me tell you…..since I was small, I was always a MINNESOTA VIKINGS fan…used to love watching FRAN TARKENTON, ALLAN PAGE, PAUL KRAUSE…ROY WINSTON…..CHUCK FOREMAN…..JOHN GILLIAM……and, of course, their incredible head coach BUD GRANT….I will always cheer for the VIKINGS, unless they play my REDSKINS…well, here’s what happened…I believe it was in the early 70’s when the VIKINGS went to WASHINGTON to play the REDSKINS…I had never seen the SKINS play before…….the very first thing that turned me on to them was their quarterback, BILLY KILMER….I loved his “single bar helmet”, and that fact that he lumbered around like an old man behind the running back, and threw kind of SIDE ARM….he was fun to watch…and, as a young boy, I fell in love with the colors of the team, too….but probably the main thing that got me turned on was the fan base…they were absolutely breathing REDSKINS football….after that game, I became a diehard WASHINGTON REDSKINS fan…I think I was like 7 or 8 years old…..and as I mentioned, I still cheer for the VIKINGS every single week…unless they are playing my team…….

 

6.  okay…here’s my quick take on the NFL teams this year………(please don’t hold me to any of my comments by the end of the season…)

 

ARIZONA CARDINALS:  they are going to struggle….they have a long way to go…I feel sorry for LARRY FITZGERALD having to go thru this….I wish he could play with a team that could get him a championship…he’s a great player….maybe CARSON PALMER can change things up, but it looks like a long season coming up….

ATLANTA FALCONS:  lots of people are picking them to be SUPER BOWL favorites…..I can’t disagree, other than they are coming from one of the toughest divisions in football….MATT RYAN will again, be the glue that holds the team together…i’m not worried about their passing game with the likes of JULIO JONES running down the field…what i’m waiting for is to see how their new running back STEVEN JACKSON will do….

BALTIMORE RAVENS:  last year’s SUPER BOWL winner….tough team….JOE FLACCO doesn’t seem to get the respect that he deserves……it will be fun seeing what they do this year without bigmouth RAY LEWIS playing with them…..don’t be surprised if they are right in the thick of it come playoff time…..

BUFFALO BILLS:  I don’t know…I also see a long season for them….rookie quarterback E. J. MANUEL is getting the nod here…..i’m surprised they got rid of quarterback RYAN FITZPATRICK….he seemed to finally get his game together and now he’s with the TITANS….the injury to KEVIN KOLB could be a career ender….that’s sad….and, it’s going to have to be showtime for C. J. SPILLER…time will tell….

CAROLINA PANTHERS:  i’m not completely sold on CAM NEWTON….my relatives in LANCASTER, SOUTH CAROLINA would disagree, but I was disappointed to see how immature he acted a few times last year when he lost…..he needs to be a solid leader for this team to win….and who doesn’t like perennial wide receiver STEVE SMITH…he’s like the Duracell bunny…he just keeps going…and going…and going…..

CHICAGO BEARS:  new coach…new direction…..which direction will it be? hopefully up….BRIAN URLACHER isn’t playing anymore….will that change the defense?  they’re going to be playing in a division that I think, Is up for grabs……

CINCINNATI BENGALS:  I continue to be a big fan of wide receiver A. J. GREEN…I like him so much that I picked him up on my fantasy football team……and, ANDY DALTON continues to amaze at quarterback…..this could be the year that the BUNGULS….I mean, BENGALS go deep in the playoffs….

CLEVELAND BROWNS:  I feel sorry for them….they seem to be a disaster every single year…just when they get some momentum, something screws it up…my uncle DENNIS has been a diehard BROWNS fan for decades….I feel for him….and I feel for their fans…hopefully, the “DOGPOUND” will be howling this year in CLEVELAND….

DALLAS COWBOYS:  i’m going to TRY and be objective for a few minutes…..ooops…just threw up in my mouth….oh well..here goes……truthfully, I feel sorry for TONY ROMO…he just can’t seem to get a break….and now he’s playing with INCREDIBLE STRESS after that huge new contract……COWBOY’S owner, JERRY JONES, who makes me sick to my stomach, wants to win NOW…..the BOYS are also in a very tough division this year with PHILADELPHIA, WASHINGTON, AND NEW YORK GIANTS….any one of these teams can win that division…for JASON GARRETT’S sake, it had better be DALLAS….

DENVER BRONCOS:  all signs point to the SUPER BOWL…seriously, a lot of people are picking them……how can you go wrong with PEYTON MANNING at the helm?  the guys a legend….and he’s playing for JOHN ELWAY…another legend…..i’m waiting to see what their new running back MONTEE BALL can do….this rookie from WISCONSIN has the power to become a big star quickly…..will it happen?  let’s find out…starting tonight…

DETROIT LIONS:  my pick to win the NFC NORTH….seriously…..the “MOTOR CITY KITTIES” are sitting right there, waiting to pounce…..I think the one cog missing was a solid running game….and now, enter REGGIE BUSH…yeah, that REGGIE BUSH….with REGGIE in the backfield, CALVIN JOHNSON screaming down the sidelines and MATTHEW STAFFORD throwing to him, things could click…if they do, WATCH OUT……

GREEN BAY PACKERS:  they too, could easily win the division again…how can you root against AARON RODGERS?  the guy is amazing……the problem is, yet ANOTHER PACKERS player has gone to the VIKINGS….i’m talking about GREGG JENNINGS….plus, DONALD DRIVER retired….a lot of this success could be riding on their headcase JERMICHAEL FINLEY…if he can manage his game, and the running backs can compliment the passing game, the PACKERS could do well…unfortunately, their defense could struggle, too….

HOUSTON TEXANS:  MATT SCHAUB….ARIAN FOSTER……ANDRE JOHNSON….OWEN DANIELS….all the key components are there……but, not a lot of people are picking them….MATT SCHAUB was the 23rd ranked quarterback  in my NFL fantasy league…that’s a huge drop…of course, if any team from TEXAS has to win, i’ll take these guys……

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS:  with any “LUCK” they will be much better…ANDREW LUCK is just plain good….he’s solid…he’s a great replacement for PEYTON MANNING…if he can stay healthy, they can be good…if he gets chased around and banged up, look out……

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS:  one word….UGH…..it’s going to be a super long season in JACKSONVILLE…..

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS:  if anybody can turn this team around it’s their new head coach ANDY REID….but, will quarterback ALEX SMITH show up?  can the running game stay healthy?  they can’t do much worse than last year….coach REID will make sure of that….

MIAMI DOLPHINS:  what will RYAN TANNEHILL’S second season be like?  well, it had better be on the upswing…DOLPHIN’S owners put a lot of money and stock into wide receiver MIKE WALLACE who came over from PITTSBURGH…my projection?  mediocre….8-8…..just can’t decide on this team…..

MINNESOTA VIKINGS:  I have a few comments on my second favorite team…first of all, I am not sold at all on CHRISTIAN PONDER….I think that the VIKINGS would be better off if MATT CASSEL is playing…which he will, by week four in my estimation…….and to VIKING’S fans?   YOU’RE WELCOME…I say that because of your new receiver CORDARRELLE PATTERSON coming over from my TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS….I loved watching him on my VOLS…and you VIKINGS fans are going to grow to love this kid……I can’t figure out this team…they had a good record last year, but can they do it again?  can they win the division?  I don’t think so..I HOPE SO, but I don’t think so……..

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS:  once again, the most well-oiled team in the NFL….every single year, in and out, they are in contention…..and with TOM BRADY at the helm, again, it’s going to be solid again…..most teams would have destructed after the off field crap the PATRIOTS had to deal with over AARON HERNANDEZ…but the PATRIOTS staff and management kept mum….they didn’t comment every day…they just did it the proper way…the cut his butt……got rid of him…and once he was gone, no more talking about him……whether you like them or not, the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS are the “classy team of the NFL.”  and trust me…they’ll once again be right there at the end…..

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS:  well, their head coach is back…SEAN PAYTON is back from his suspension and ready to fight…..and fight he will….he’ll be standing on the sidelines making that frumpy face that I cannot stand to watch…..but he wins…he’s successful…and anytime you have DREW BREES on your team, you stand the chance of going deep in the playoffs……PAYTON, i’m sure, feels like he has something to prove to NFL commissioner ROGER GOODELL…and if PAYTON has his way, it will be GOODELL having to hand over the LOMBARDI trophy to him……

NEW YORK GIANTS:  once again, they are going to be super tough….ELI MANNING continues to get better…TOM COUGHLIN, although possibly the crankiest man in the NFL, is one of the better coaches in the NFL….the GIANTS could easily win the division…and, they could easily implode………it’s a watch, wait and see with the “G-MEN.”

NEW YORK JETS:  the laughing stock of football…REX RYAN needs to go….their offseason shenanigans have been hilarious……RYAN sells out his rookie quarterback to the media after a preseason game….RYAN throws SANCHEZ to the wolves in the fourth quarter of a preseason game AND HE GETS HURT…..this team is a disaster…if they win six games they’ll be darn lucky…..

OAKLAND RAIDERS:  they are starting TERRELL PRYOR as their quarterback…..that pretty much sums it up……

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES:  new coach CHIP KELLY comes into the NFL as a high powered offensive guy….he has MIKE VICK to throw the ball downfield…he has some pretty good targets and a pretty stellar defense…..this could be the EAGLE’S year to rebound…it should be fun watching them……except for week one when they play my SKINS…they MUST lose that game…….

PITTSBURGH STEELERS:  this is the favorite team of my boss…so, I have to respect them….maybe…ha ha….BIG BEN is a perennial great quarterback…will it be enough?  losing MIKE WALLACE had to hurt this offense, and the defense is getting older…..my guess?  9-7…or maybe 8-8…but never doubt MIKE TOMLIN…he may completely show me wrong….

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS:  new coach…new motivation…probably same outcome……their quarterback PHILLIP RIVERS just can’t get over the hump….NORV TURNER didn’t do him any favors…..CHARGER’S fans are sick of waiting…it’s “poop or get off the pot” time in SAN DIEGO…….

SAN FRANCISCO 49’ERS:  tough tough tough tough team….love their coach…..great quarterback…..great running game…excellent wide receivers….great defense……what am I saying?  DON’T BE SUPRISED IF THEY WIN IT ALL…they just about did it last year…..

ST. LOUIS RAMS:  mediocre at best….i’m not a SAM BRADFORD fan….I think they could have done much better in that position….and losing DANNY AMENDOLA to the PATRIOTS hurt the passing game…and oh yeah, STEVEN JACKSON isn’t there either…..could be a long season for RAM’S fans….

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS:  I completely love their running back DOUG MARTIN…this guy could be the top running back in the game if it  weren’t for ADRIAN PETERSON…..JOSH FREEMAN is a good quarterback….this is one team that wouldn’t surprise me if they won their division….SUPER BOWL champs?  probably not…but the potential to be a super good team….

TENNESSEE TITANS:  my son TYLER’S favorite team……running back CHRIS JOHNSON drives me nuts…I’ve picked him up twice to be my fantasy starting running back and he HAS SUCKED….and the years I don’t pick him up, he rocks….well, TITANS’ fans, I didn’t pick him up this year…..so, we’ll see….and by the way, JAKE LOCKER is not your answer at quarterback…it’s RYAN FITZPATRICK, who you paid a ton of money to get…LOCKER had better start fast, or he’ll be carrying a clipboard…..

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS:  probably the scariest team in the NFL…..RUSSELL WILSON is a fantastic quarterback…he can throw…he can run..he can block……this team could easily waltz into the SUPER BOWL…..for a couple of years running….don’t be shocked…..I just don’t like their arrogant player RICHARD SHERMAN….he’s got a mouth that never shuts up….and i’m not a fan of their coach PETE CARROLL…he got out of the college scene right before his program crashed….he should have been held accountable….oh well, his punishment will probably be hoisting up the LOMBARDI trophy……

AND FINALLY….

MY WASHINGTON REDSKINS:  I know I sound like a homer, but this team is tough….they have the right core of players that could put them in the running for a deep playoff run…..quarterback RG3 must play smarter…he’s an incredible talent…he just needs to not get hit…..their backup quarterback KIRK COUSINS could quarterback about 24 of the other teams……our second year running back ALFRED MORRIS is coming off a record setting season….he will be fun to watch……for my team, I say 10-6 and a divisional championship for the second year….once again, time will tell….

 

WELL, I’M EXHAUSTED…hope you liked it…..if you want to talk to me about your team, just e-mail me at:  jayhaaland64@yahoo.com
