Countdown To NCAA Football: 80 Days

Hope springs forth for every football team, their coaches and players at this time of year. The grind begins in earnest in a little over a month, so for now the coaches are recruiting for next year and the next, while the players are running and lifting.

Every team is undefeated and, realistic or not, all have the same goal of winning the national championship.

Personally, I ache in anticipation. I love the thrills and spills, the bands and the exuberant fans. I have been an Oklahoma Sooner football fan since 1955, I loved Coach Wilkinson(one of the finest gentleman to have ever lived), I loved and still love the Crimson and Cream colors, and I became a loyal fan in the midst of the historic 47 game winning streak.

Us Sooner fans don’t respond well to a disappointing 8-5 season and we fully expect to return to the top tier of college football this season.

BOOMER S00NER!

Reagan: “A Black Belt in Bad-Assery”

Brad Meltzer, writing in the NYDN

I was in Secret Service headquarters when they told me about former President Ronald Reagan’s biggest secret. …..

Ronald Reagan BadassWe were talking about Reagan and that day he was shot. Then one of the agents offered this secret: When Reagan was President, he carried his own gun.

“It’s true,” they said. A .38. Reagan used to hide it in his briefcase and take it on Air Force One.

Whatever you think of Reagan, you have to admit, he had a black belt in badassery.

The Rolling Stones “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” released on their album Sticky Fingers April 23, 1971 on Rolling Stones Records. The album peaked at #1 both in the UK and US and remained there for several weeks. The photos ~’69-’73 in the video represent the time post-Brian Jones and pre-Ron Wood. The Rolling Stone magazine cover w/ Mick & Keith is 1975 and Ronnie joined by then. Mick Taylor’s work was on Let It Bleed ’69, Sticky Fingers ’71, E

Execution Watch: Lester Bower, Texas

He’s Dead, Jim

Running a few days behind is pretty normal for our blog.  Running a few decades behind is pretty unusual, however for the Great State of Texas.  This time, justice delayed was not justice denied, as cop-killer Lester Bower’s day of reckoning arrived after his 1983 conviction for a quadruple murder involving an ultralight airplane.

From the Associated Press:

He was found guilty of killing contractor Bob Tate, former police officer Ronald Mayes, sheriff’s deputy Philip Good and interior designer Jerry Brown in a deal for a $4,000 ultra-light airplane that went bad.

Prosecutors said Bower killed Tate to steal the airplane Tate was selling and then killed the other three when they unexpectedly showed up at the hangar.

Investigators said they found parts from Tate’s airplane at Bower’s residence and that he had made calls to Tate. They said Bower, who also sold firearms, had acquired a gun and exotic ammunition similar to what was used in the killings.

Bower was pronounced dead at 6:36 p.m. CDT
