Nominal Me

I'm falling in love with my camera and taking photos everywhere I go. That, combined with my passions for politics, sports, religion and other things we all agree on, makes this blog persist.

Well I guess I've been excused from this assignment since you did it for me. Happy new year!

Thanks for the props, Nominal. As I said before, you're knowledge of blogs is simply staggering. You cover a helluva lotta ground. Impressive.

Happy New Year.

PS: Hope the Bills make you a happy man on Sunday. Unfortunately, with Bledsoe under center your boys have zero shot in the tournament.

Thanks Jackie and Janet, my two loyal readers (there's Angry Dan and Dr. Stangelove too, so if I ever had to sell ads on this site for a living, I could guarantee four viewers).

Happy New Year.

I don't expect the Bills for go far, but it beats what they were giving me the first half of the year.

Sorry 'bout the misfortune, Nominal. Looks like your boy Bledsoe decided to crap the bed a week early. Awful nice of him to hand the Steelers "d" a touchdown like that. Especially nice since the Jets are doing their best to piss away this Rams game. But, thanks to Drew's generosity, Gang Green will be in the tournament either way.

If I'm a Bills fan, the J.P. Losman era can not start soon enough.

Hang in there.
