Why the U.S. win against Algeria is the most important moment in American soccer history
I’ve needed to settle down for awhile after that riveting soccer game that saw Landon Donovan score the game winner in stoppage time before writing this post. I’ve done that, now let me tell why this game (and win) were so important to the popularity of soccer in the U.S.A. There’s basically three camps in…
Solving a problem Kevin Costner style
I’m a firm believer in conservation. However, I’m also a capitalist. I have always had disdain for the folks who carry on about “globalwarmingcoolingclimatechange” and then brag about driving their ’68 Volkswagon Bus cross-country, or those that fly privately to far off countries to complain about various climate issues. You know the ones. The “Enviro-scolds.”…
Why I’m glad I’m not living in Iceland at the moment
Volcano? What Volcano? It’s amazing how the most dangerous things can also be the most beautiful.
Venezuela, a non-expert analysis

Broncos v Steelers
I’m at the game but not very interested. I’m watching baseball and hockey….I can’t believe I just typed that but it’s true….anyway it’s 7 – 0 Steelers. Let’s see if the Broncos show some fight. UPDATE: Oh my God a touchdown!!!!! 15 yards to Brandon Stokley. Wow, I’m in shock, not Rockies win the pennant…
A bad day, made worse
It’s been a tough day today that still has several hours remaining, but this hurts the worst. I never talked with Cathy or Maia, but they’re certainly in my thoughts tonight.
I worked with this guy…. A veteran Denver-area radio personality was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of using the Internet to lure a child into a sexual relationship. Scott Eller Cortelyou, 53, of Conifer, was taken into custody at a KRCN-AM (1060) facility in Lakewood, where he co-hosts the morning Business for Breakfast show. The show…
