Unfortunate end for Outlaws

It seems that Billings/Yellowstone County is unwilling to support a professional sports team beyond the Mustangs. Our fine county commisioners fumbled in their treatment of the Outlaws and now they have folded. I guess commisioners felt it would be better for the Metra to be empty a few more dates after it is repaired. No blasted football, pro basketball or hockey in there please! Maybe they plan on lots of concerts since they are finally doing some acoustic work? I doubt they have good plans going forward.
Billings has enjoyed having the Outlaws. They were always a good team and are league champs. The Mustangs have been mediocre of late, but since my old boss, Jon Dehler, donated $1M toward the sweet new ballpark, the government won't likely be killing that team soon.
We need new blood in the county commision. We need someone with a little vision for our city/county and an ability to plan. I'm too busy for the job. How about you?

Celebrities ususally die in groups of three

Recently, Ed McMahon died after a long bout of illness. Today, I heard that Farrah Fawcett (yes, I had that poster as a kid) passed as well. Moments ago I found out that Michael Jackson died from heart trouble. I can't recall them all, but this isn't the first time I have noticed stars dropping as trio.
I guess many young boys can feel a bit safer, but I'll miss Farrah.

It's so quiet out there!

I have noticed that many of our beloved Montana blogs have had little in new content lately. I can't point fingers since my postings have been rare as well. Many of my favorite reads have had zero posts while some others have added sparingly. I see the Montana Netroots was temporarily eaten up by a worm and is only recently back (and welcome back guys) along with Shane's personal site. I'll have to say this is mostly due to the elections being over. Thank God! All those political ads were driving me nuts!

On a personal note: I get to be a bachelor over the last week of February since my beloved is going to Copenhagen and Amsterdam on a trip her sister won. Lots of time for me to do whatever strikes me as fun I guess. I will miss her anyway. (hate sleeping alone after 25 years of marriage)

Happy new year

Let's hope '09 is better than '08 was. I'm not too hopeful though. Hamas and Israel are hammering each other. We get a new President soon (whoopie!) and the economy is looking bleak. If aliens came and offered to take me to a nice, uninhabited world, I'd have to consider it!

Chargers defense looks weak

The Carolina Panthers moved the ball well against them last week- well enough to pull off an upset win. The Chargers travel to division rival Denver this week. I don't like their chances for a win if they play like they did last week. Denver has a fair offense and plays well at Invesco field. I will obviously root for the Bolts to get things on track. LT has turf toe, but will still play. Merriman looks to be done for quite a while with his bad knee. Maybe having a HEALTHY guy playing end will improve the D. I hope so!

Kelleher wins state Republican primary for senate

Okay! Who among you voted for the eyebrows? It certainly wasn't me. I voted for Bushman.
This sure backs up my opinion that many voters go to the polls uninformed and unprepared. I can't find one person who will admit to voting for Bob. Fess up. Who was it?

I guess Max can save his money for the 2014 run.

Operation Chaos supported by Hammond report

Andy Hammond has tempted the ire of the left by coming out in support of Rush Limbaugh's "Operation Chaos". There have been many venomous comments left in response to his post. While I don't intend to participate myself (someone needs to chose OUR candidates for other offices), I must remind leftists that they have employed these tactics as well. Some liberal voters have been encouraged to vote for Romney before our Presidential contest was decided.

I don't feel great about the ethics of such maneuvers, but those who threaten legal action over this have little to go on. Montana has an open primary. I get both ballots before going into the booth to vote. Are you going to follow me in to see how I vote? Try it! We'll see who gets arrested.
