Thanks to the pissing match between the NFL and the large cable companies, including Comcast, this is what I was able to enjoy of the matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. In an effort to sway the vote to the side of the NFL in this debate, was showing the […]

Since Easton Ellsworth provided me with 12 tips to improve my blog, I have been looking through the suggestions and decided to make a few changes. Lose the duplicate feed buttons. In place of the RSS feed links that I had on the sidebar, I am now offering the opportunity to subscribe to Derek Semmler […]


Yes, I know it is juvenile, but I had a good laugh when I saw the typo of asshares in the above headline while browsing the latest news at Yahoo! News earlier tonight. I came across this headline just before leaving work and I just had to grab a screen shot. The headline has since […]
