Pause Ponder and Pun


I know they drafted him as a place kicker but I guess they didn't tell him which place to kick.  Okay, that's my effort.  What's yours?

Give it a go and we'll see you back here Saturday with our honourable mentions and a winner.

In between time, why don't you drift on over to Margo at the Screaming Me-Me.  She's an upright kinda gal and always has a great pic to take a kick at.

Good luck!

They don't call them Longhorn steers for nothing.

Oh, so that's what they mean by a "dead ball".

After years of ridicule, Fred Crotchblaster's day of glory had finally come.

Regret at the idea of rushing the kicker was the SECOND strongest feeling Jimmy experienced that day.

Everything's bigger in Texas, usually because of the swelling.

They didn't cover this in the two-minute warning.

This was the day that Josh Richardson's nickname changed from "Mad Dog" to "Squeaks McGee".

Oh crap! I stepped in a pile of lineman. Dude, can you help me get it off my shoe?

But besides that, he did set the all-time NFL record for kicking an opposing player the farthest.

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…

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…
