At least Trump did not leak out the Colonel’s special blend

On a glorious overcast day at the edge of Newark Bay, Bayonne would host the final palooza of the Spring 2017 season.  Coming off 2 days with the temperatures prematurely pushing 90, the 60-ish weather was a welcome relief.  Morris and Bayonne would each supplement their sides with members of the Village Lions, Gentlemen of…

Many beautiful women in the Philippines . . . many of whom are female

The weekend did not start well.  A cough that I picked up “working” the the Morristown Brewfest in March materialized into an actual cold on Friday.  I felt like crap.  Standard marathon training calls for carbo-loading before the event.  Treatment of the common cold calls for drinking plenty of fluids.  Hmm.  With a game tomorrow,…

The scions of Babe were no stranger to leadership.  On this glorious sun-splattered day in Denville, these descendants would lead a procession of melted pig fat tendrils up into the atmosphere to waft their ways to the ever hungering crowd.  It was opening day for the 2016-2017 Tri-State Rugby Palooza season.

Why Is My Earwax Black?

WHY IS MY EARWAX BLACK? Going to work this week, I took out my earbuds when I got to the Port Authority, and discovered they were not a golden brown, but a dull black.  Vestiges of our swamp-fest 10 days earlier.  The pitch was so sloppy that the mud got everywhere.  I heard an anecdotal…
