Sunday Funnies

This week's look back at highlights from editorial cartoonists focuses on sports. Last weekend, the unexpected happened in the world of golf. Meanwhile in the world of football two quarterbacks made anticipated comebacks. It remains to be seen if their resurrections will be viewed as the second-coming... or, I guess in one instance the third...

Heh, heh, tho' I no longer follow sports, I kept track of these two( I know it doesn't make any sense...I blame the media, of course )...the one cartoon could be Terry Bradshaw-LOL!

The cartoonists always have SOMETHING. I shook my head in seeing Favre in a walker though.
He's such a great guy, but I don't think he should be allowed to go in and out of a contract by retiring and then coming back.

I am very upset with football right now. Favre is an egomaniac, but I'm more upset about Vick being allowed back into the NFL and even more upset that the Eagles signed him.

I am now a FORMER Eagles fan.

subtorp77: I know. Is this pro football or a soap opera?

dizzblnd: I think the cartoons are spot on the money, especially the ones with the walker. Funny stuff.

John: It sure sets a precedent, the Vick case. Who you pulling for now?

Favre, needs to stay in the nursing home. Of course if teams are willing to pay him, who can blame him. I think every time Vick shows his face a tape should play next to him showing dogs fighting for their life. Just as a reminder of who he is.

noname, it must be a soap; why else would Mom scream at the telly( when her team is losin' )?-HA! Come to think of it, she yells at pretty much everything on the telly-LOL!

ettarose: Don't hold back. Tell us how you really feel!

subtorp77: I like your mom, already.

Nooter: Of course. The dog has the upper hand, er, ah, leg.

I feel sorry for Favre. Football is all he knows, but cha know it's gotta be killin' him to be out there. The older we are, the more it hurts when we fall...

I remember when he tried sports announcing. He told them right then and there that he hated it and that he wouldn't be back.

At least most of us have more than one thing we're good at.

Hey, come on, Favre did really well in his debut as a Viking. He completed one pass out of four for four yards. I don't think many senior citizens can do that?
Unless they swam in that swimming pool from the movie Cocoon.

subtorp77: I'll take your word on that.

lotgk: Personally I think the interesting team to watch this year is gonna be Philly.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
