Today’s View From the Bull Pen
Putin and His Preciousssss
Some days you just have to go with silly. Really silly. Of course, the whole story of Vladimir Putin stealing Robert Kraft's Super Bowl Ring is pretty silly. And, I might add, a bit bizarre. This along with the recent news about Putin's divorce and supposed affair with a 20 something is clear evidence that somebody named Vladimir is having a mid-life crisis.

Quotes & Quips“The basic thing is that everyone wants happiness, no one wants suffering. And happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors. If your own mental attitude is correct, even if you remain in a hostile atmosphere, you feel happy.”- H.H. The Dalai Lama

When Pigs Fly, Chickens have teeth, Frogs have hair, and the Cows come home…
That’s pretty much the mindset these days in New Orleans. They’ve already renamed Mardi Gras, Lombardi Gras. It brings back memories of Denver in 1977. No one believed the Broncos could do it then, much like the Saints now. Oh, that first championship does amazing things in the community.
Olympics to come
I’ll start cranking out Olympic toons soon, but I might wait til after a Danica at Daytona cartoon. Not sure yet. You pick. Which one do want me to draw for Friday?
High School sports
Maybe it’s just me, or the market I live in (Denver) but it pains me to see so little importance and air time given to high school sports. I wish, sometimes, the coverage was the other way around.
Comments and critiques
I realize I have foisted a tremendous amount of new stuff here on the site all at once. But it’s been almost a year since the loss of the Rocky Mountain News and almost that long for this blog. I felt like it needed some refreshing here. Feel free to let me know what you like and don’t like about the changes here. I want to make this place a blast for you to come to!
As you can see I changed the site over the weekend. I’ve added some fun features, the biggest one being Mingle. I hope you’ll join the community. To sign up just go to the header and hit the signup button. Just think of it as Facebook for sports fans! Let me know what you think of the new look. I want a great reader experience here on the site. A place where you can go during the day to have a little fun. I’ll be adding some more things in the coming days.
Super Bowl Week
Here’s another cartoon that kind of sums up the way I feel about the Super Bowl. It’s bittersweet. Just knowing that when the game is over, so is the season. I’ve always tried to convince my wife to let me keep the Christmas lights and tree up until after the Super Bowl. Tis the season ya know. But then I would have two things end at the same time so it’s probably better to go ahead and put one away before the other.
The metaphor of the roller coaster is one of the most used in all of cartooning ( next to the guy on the desert island.) I’d never done one though with the thing just ending in mid air. I kind of like that. It’s certainly the way I feel after the game is over. Be sure to check back on Thursday for our Super Bowl poll and another cartoon.
One of my favorite days of the year! Old Punxsutawney Phil pops up to see just whose shadow he sees. These days it could totally be anybodies. I narrowed it to Bud Selig, Tiger Woods, and Josh McDaniels. I finally settled on Selig. He’s so much fun to draw.
The End is Near!
The season can’t be almost over already. I don’t know about you but the worst funk of the winter for me is always right after the Super Bowl. I don’t ski, it’s still cold outside and there isn’t any football left. Now if they played those lousy bowl games we have to endure in December in February they might be on to something.
