NFL Pro Bowl-Vote Today

So apparently, at the NFL owners’ meeting, the team representatives are discussing adding some more benefits to the NFL Pro Bowl, the lamest All Star event in all of professional sports.

As you guys probably recall, I wrote a blog a couple months ago about my opinions on the Big 4 All Star celebrations. I illustrated the four events, and how I think they all stack up. NBA and NHL sport very strong All Star celebrations. MLB does a solid job making the game have some playoff ramifications.

The NFL has nothing. It’s just a scrimmage. There is nothing making it any more fun except like the other three leagues, fans have a say in who plays in the game.

Today, the team reps are going to discuss adding a fantasy draft to the Pro Bowl. Allow me to explain.

In the NHL, rather than having an East and West team, the league elects two captains who alternate choosing players that they want to have on their rosters. They used to have an East-West matchup but they found this to be more entertaining. They were completely accurate. I love the fantasy draft.

The NFL, MLB and NBA play conference games (games pitting one half against the other half). MLB has AL and NL, NBA has East-West and NFL has AFC-NFC.

The NFL may be the next team to adopt the NHL’s alignment.

Apparently, we may see two captains choosing teams regardless of conference. I think that could make the game a little more interesting. At some point, there must be some sort of benefit for winning. The linemen don’t even block. It’s a disgraceful game. But, they are keeping it around for one more year.

They gotta do something. The Pro Bowl is in danger.

I am With You.

I Am With You

At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.”

I need you like I need the air to breathe

Love is more than a word
it says so much.
This is only happened since
I fell in love with you.

as I am with you
Why this word does this
I haven’t got a clue.

I miss you all day just all the time
My day is your night
My dark is your bright.
When I look at the moon
When I talk on the phone
When I write this poem
I am always be with you.

I hope you’re as happy being with me
as I am with you.

Bankers and the Peril of Humans

sdw

A bank.

Some would say a symbol of prosperity.

Or a symbol of capitalism.

Or even greed.

The trouble is not the banking institution.

No, no, it is the humans that run it.

The bankers are the problem.

Humans are greedy creatures naturally.

If  given access to wealth, nature will take its due course.

The course of nature is to exploit weaker creatures.

Governments pretend to be surprised.

They pretend to prosecute all in the name of economic freedom.

Capitalism however leaves no room for this freedom.

An uncorrupt system does not base a human’s value off worthless paper.

One day the people will have enough and the system will cease to exist.
