The Morning After – December 19, 2011 edition

Hello and I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and other holidays that come at this time of the year.

Allow me to once again take things seriously as the Motherland, specifically its southern portion, was battered by Tropical Storm Washi (locally known as Sendong) over the weekend. I am fine, but after personally enduring the wrath two years ago, it surely is not alright down there.

Relief efforts are already underway. If you so choose to help, you can check here & here for details on how you can chip in. You may also check the website of the Philippine Red Cross.

The Filipino spirit remains undaunted. Unfazed. We will rise up again. And Again.

  1. They truly are the World Champions. (c/o New York Times)

    Or are they? They didn’t win the Champions League

  2. The versatile Cuddyer is off for some Coors. (c/o Southside Showdown)

    At 10 mil a year? I dunno…

  3. Baron Davis is an upgrade to Mike Bibby. (c/o Study of Sports)

    In some sort of seniors league. Sure

  4. Cycledan feeling good, but kwsn not thrilled.

    Yup, nice to be ranked #1. I have no delusions though. Syracuse will lose a few games and go up and down a bit in the standings. Key thing is to be at least a #2 seed in the NCAA tournament and then have a deep run.

    Nice to have Syracuse winning when the Jets and Giants were so awful yesterday.

  5. Needs more Colts.

    Yeah, I was more surprised by the Colts win than the GB loss. I really thought the Colts were going 0-16. Just a strange day in the NFL yesterday.

  6. You spent $75M for someone to get sentenced to house arrest.

    This is a very relevant argument. Whether or not Barry Bonds goes to jail or not doesn’t make me or any other person in this country safer or better. Just a waste of resources that could have otherwise been used to prosecute people who really hurt us.

    Now they are going after Lance Armstrong. I am pretty sure he was doping. I am also pretty sure that it occurred over in Europe and in European events and that every other major player was also doping. So what does that have to do with the US justice department? Nothing. Just wastes our tax money so that prosecutors can make a name for themselves by going after famous athletes.
