  2. Cancer and Sports Part 10 Of Many

    Brett Favre did it - game 4 for the Vikings! Jeff watched from his room - alone and did not manage to stay awake throughout the entire great game. I left Favre on my bench (so much for advice - always play Brees)...

    If you read my last entry you know that Jeff was not interested in the Penn State game.  That was the tip that things had turned south, and he is now quite ill, and suddenly, in Chester County Hospital...

  6. Cancer and Sports Part 6 Of Many

    Interesting picture.  Yesterday I took Jeff to visit a friend whose sports authentication business I am buying.  He had, and I bought, a baseball...one of the last authenticated baseballs signed by members of the old Negro League - including Casey Jones..

  11. Cancer and Sports Part 1 Of Many

    I figured that the experts are telling fans everything they want to know about everyone so why repeat or in some cases argue with the experts.   I want to tell you about the healing properties of professional sports...

  14. I Lost My First Fantasy Match By 1 Point: Thanks TO!

  16. Fantasy Football...Oh My! ANd Vick, Oh No!

    So, I took the old guy...put him as my back up in not one but two fantasy leagues. I guess that is the social worker in me. It is also the social worker in me that makes me angry at Michael Vick and his handlers...

  17. Phillies Get Hosed In Houston and We Were There

    Yes, lucky us...we were in Houston. Had I been able to use the slide show here you might have seen the game for all it is not worth. I should be blogging about my fantasy football picks and my Vick protest on Sunday, but this is just a way better story.

  18. The View From Houston ( MD Anderson) By a Phillies Fan

  25. Guess Who Didn't Meet The Animal People?

    I hate running on about Vick - we give him too much attention but this is more about the (B)Eagles than the player. It is about respect, selling out and a few other choice things. I took the "hit" for Myers yesterday - pretty funny...
