09/24/2012: A night that will live in infamy

via the blog, Acme Packing Company:

If any good comes out of this play -- which was only the worst call in what was almost certainly the most poorly officiated professional sporting event I've ever watched -- it will be the event that forces Roger Goodell to pick up the phone to the professional referees and ask them to name their price. If the Packers had to lose to save the integrity of the NFL going forward, at least this nonsensical game did some good for sport."

via the ESPN NFC North Blog:

I'm sure Packers president Mark Murphy will address the league in some way. But for regional pride, if nothing else, I would love to see the NFL's offices swarmed by Packers shareholders who live in New York City. And how great would it be if 360,000 or so people jammed the phone lines and had their collective voices heard? Wouldn't it be awesome if local ratings in and around Green Bay plummeted Thursday night, the next time the NFL is shown on TV?"

For one of the first times in my life, I'm at a loss of words.

Dear Future Wife

DISCLAIMER: THIS ARTICLE IS DEDICATED TO THE WOMAN WHO DECIDES TO BEAR MY CHILD(REN).

I'm going to keep this short and concise. If we have a son, you might as well stop thinking up names right now. His name is GOING to be Ezekiel Zakshesky...Zeke for short. This is not negotiable.

You may be wondering to yourself, why? 

via Wikipedia

In JudaismChristianity and Islam, Ezekiel is acknowledged as a Hebrew prophet. In Judaism and Christianity, he is also viewed as the author of the Book of Ezekiel that reveals prophecies regarding the destruction of Jerusalem and the Millennia Temple visions, or the Third Temple."

Badassery.

Furthermore, in case you didn't realize by now, I'm slightly in love with the Green Bay Packers. During the Lombardi Dynasty, there was a respected quarterback who isn't as well known simply because of the fact that he had the unfortunate position of playing behind Bart Starr...which ultimately meant he never played. However, during the few occasions (garbage time, or when Starr was hurt) in which Zeke Bratkowsi was given the chance to prove himself, he did so with honor.

FYI: If our son even contemplates being anything but a Packer fan, I'm going to beat him.So there you have it. As a token of my appreciation to you for your understanding and commitment, I'll relent and allow you some creative control over the middle name.

Also, please don't divorce me.
