I have been gone for a while and I probably will be for another three weeks. This has got to have been the worst two months of my life.

First, while at work, I get a phone call from my sister telling me that mom has fallen and they called 911. They told me which hospital they were taking her too so I told my supervisor and they let me off the night. Got to the hospital before the ambulance showed up and it took me 35 minutes to get there. They show up 10 minutes later. We got my mom checked in and they started tests. Turns out she had a heart attack.

Okay mom is taken care of, and the next day (Sunday) my wife starts complaining about stomach pain. She says she will call the doctor on Monday. Monday she calls the doctor and he has appointments available. I tell her to go to the hospital. She wants to go to the doctor so I tell her if the doctor has no appointments when she calls on Tuesday we go to the satellite emergency room (the hospital has a 10 bed emergency room right next to my developmenty). Calls doctor tuesday and there is nothing available. We go to the emergency room and they take e-rays and blood work. The emergency room calls the hospital and they get a room available for critical care. They have to wait about 20 minutes for the room to be ready. I leave my wife and head home to feed and walk the dog and then put him in his room. I get to her room at the hospital just as is being set in bed. Doctor comes in and tells us she has a blockage in her stomach. She goes the operating room and I go to the waiting area. After a couple of hours the doctor comes out and tells my son and I that they found 7 large objects in her stomach as large as walnuts. We can't figure out how that could possibly have happen. Try putting a large walnut down your throat would cause a gag reflex. Okay, so who is going to dispute a doctor.

Things look like its going well and then my wife is starting to complain about her stomach. She is still bleeding internally. They go in again and find a small tear in her small intestines. So she finally gets out of the hospital and goes to a rehab center and guess what...they find she is still bleeding. She goes back to the hospital and they run more tests. Turns out she has hemmoroids..They figure that can wait for another time and they send her back to the rehab center except they can't because there are no rooms available. So after three extra days in the hospital she finally goes back to the rehab center  where she is still at.

During all this I end up with a huge ulcer which took two operations to fix. I am now out of the hospital and completed rehab. Now I have in-house rehab which I'm doing at my mom and sister's house for anothetr two weeks.

I do want to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Before I start, I want to remind the Gabbers that I don't like Notre Dame. I am just stating what I saw. The offense pass interference call against the Irish was bullshit!! It was the same play that FSU used for most of the game against Syracuse and they were not call for for pass interference at all.

The Blake Bortles Era has Begun!!!!
Category: NFL
Tags: Jacksonville Jaguars Blake Bortles Chad Henne

Yesterday, the fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars have spoken…60,601 of them. It started after the first offensive series, 3 and out (run, run, pass). The same old stale start the game football that the Jaguars offense has used for the past 4 years. You could hear a small rumbling of boos as the offense went off the field. Then as the offense could do nothing the chanting started from the North End Zone. Softly…We want Bortles..We want Bortles..By the time the team walked off the field all the fans were chanting We want Bortles…

When Jacksonville got the ball in the second half and Bortles ran on the field we all gave Blake a standing ovation.

The Blake Bortles era has begun!! Yes! Yes!

He was far from perfect. 14 of 24 for 223 yards with 2 touchdowns and two interceptions. He even had 30 yards rushing. But when Bortles threw an interception the fans gave him a standing ovation and I will explain why.

There seemed to be a big difference between Bortles and Henne. Bortles moves out of the pocket well, he wasn’t afraid to throw into double coverage something Henne never does, and Blake is not afraid to improvise when needed. The offensive line played way better under Bortles. Now I know its one game but its there for all to see.

I’m not going to say we will win 4 games like last year, not even six. But, I will be happier if the offense scores more points. It might take a little longer to start fighting for a playoff spot as I was hoping for next year, but by 2016 we better be fighting for a playoff sport. You know what? If we spend some $$$ on offensive lineman next year, we might been in the running for a playoff spot. Ooops, Forgot one thing. Jacksonville’s defensive has to remember how to tackle. You can’t play extra $$$ for that.

I'm Just Saying.....Don't Beat Me, Or Should You??

I'm Just Saying.....

Now that I have your attention…

I want to say thank you mom. Thanks for all the beatings you gave me growing up. Some I know I deserved and some, at the time, I didn’t think I deserved. But, in the end, I knew that everything I received was worth every strike of the belt to my ass.

This is the belt my mom used. Though I am 59, the belt is over 80 years old. I'm told is was used on my dad and aunt when they were kids. But, the missing colors of the belt can be found on my butt cheeks. I never bled, and I don’t think my mom tried to hurt me, at least that is what she says today. Love ya mom. In fact, the ass was the only place you hit me. Never on the legs, never in the face or any other part of my body.

I know that all my “punishments” were done to “put me in-line” so I would not go on the wrong path in life. For that I am internally grateful.

I am also grateful that you did not abuse me. You only punished me when I did something wrong, which seemed to be a lot. For someone who looked innocent when I was young, I was actually a devil of a child. Today I’m no Saint, but God only knows what I would have turned out to be.

To Mr. Peterson, there is no crime in punishing a child. The crime comes into play when there is physical harm to the child.

I’m Just Saying…..

Oh No Batman, Baseball in November……

The MLB regular season is scheduled to end October 4, 2015. The World Series is to start on October 28th.

I thought that football was meant for the outdoors in November..


Coaches, Coach and Athletic Directors Direct. Or so they should. AD’s should be somewhere inside the stadium minding their own business regardless what there coaches want.


Okay, he has won more Super Bowls than his more famous brother, but I think it is time to let Eli take a back seat and give Ryan Nassib s chance to prove himself. This way the G-Men will find out once and for all if Ryan is the man for the team in the future.


I was excited at halftime of the Jaguars-Eagles game. Allen Hurns 2 TD’s from Henne propelling them to a 17-0 lead. Then what the hell happened in the second half?? The Eagle’s score 37 unanswered points. Now technically there is no such thing is unanswered points. All the points were accounted for when the game was over. Was it the real Henne? Or did the Jaguars go soft all of a sudden?? The team lacks depth at linebacker. But our 3rd string safety, Chris Prosinski, got burnt. What about our running game? Only 62 yards. Gee how are ya going to win like that.

The only good thing about this game is they scored more points Sunday then they did against the Chiefs in last years opener (only 2 points).

The phone lines were busy at 1010XL the sports radio station. Most of the people who called in wanted Blake Bortles in the 4th quarter. But, he will start soon. Hopefully by the first home game in two weeks.


I am glad that Ray Rice finally got what was coming to him. Now if his wife was smart she should dump his ass.


Til next time

Scott
