Sesame Street Never Rocked So Hard

Not before Stevie, and certainly not after.

Low Caliber Entertainment

Desperate to shake a wicked case of full-blown cabin fever and having recently purchased a new pistol, I did what most people hope to do when the mercury rises above 30 degrees...send some lead. Fellow firearm enthusiast Scott accompanied me to the range where we proceeded to open a can on a variety of targets. This was my first opportunity to heat up the barrel on the new Ruger Mark III 22/45, and I must report that I was satisfied with its performance. Aside from performance, it was just nice to get out and do some much needed plinkin'.

Pre-Bowl Mega Flush

The day we've all been waiting for is here, and the showdown between the St. Louis Cardinals and the New England Patriots is about to get underway. I can't deny the electricity I feel in the air just sitting in my living room. Maybe I need to think about running a humidifier. There's an eerie stillness in our home today....the calm before the storm. I'm pretty sure it's just because the tv's off, keeping my ears Keyshawn Johnson-free.

Obviously I'm the kind of guy who knows a lot about football, and I'm also the kind of guy who'll put his reputation on the line, so call your bookie because I'm gonna give you a free Vegas-style prediction that will surely give you the inside track on tonight's game.

Here's a beautiful picture of a male cardinal.

Here's how it's going to play out...

Kurt Warner will open the game by leading a three-play drive into the end zone. He'll then decide to go for two right off the bat to get the fans into it. Then, on the following kick off, a Steeler special team dude will run the ball through the back of his end zone on accident, resulting in a safety. Warner will jump in on special teams for the next kickoff, and yep, you guessed it, he'll receive the kick and return it for a touchdown. Anyway, things will go like this for most of the game, and to make a long story, short the Cardinals will bring home the trophy to Chippewa Falls.

Cards 30

Steelers 17

You can take that to the bank.
