The War of the Public Enemies
I’m a huge Johnny Depp fan and can’t wait to see his newest movie “Public Enemies”. I was, of course, particularly fond of the films title because it plays right into baseball’s ugliest family feud, the Yankees vs. the Red Sox. So here’s a cartoon that goes out to the boys of summer.

The Rockies have a Hurdle to climb
Somehow, someway the Rockies will have to find a way either through, over or around the dodgers if they hope to continue their June Boom and make a real run at a playoff spot.
Question of the day?
Are the Rockies better in the long run without Matt Holliday?
The Real MJ
Baryshnikov. Fred Astaire. Sammy Davis Jr. Michael Jackson.
Each the epitome of Poetry in Motion. Each athletes capable of footwork that Gale Sayers and Barry Sanders could only dream about. Despite the complexity that was the life of Michael Jackson there is no denying his athletic ability on the stage. Unmatched. Original. Artistic. Breathtaking.

Question: Are you as tired of the constant focus on steroids in baseball as I am? If I don’t draw another cartoon about it all, I’m more than fine. Admittedly I am conflicted. It makes for good cartoon material. On the other hand I relate to the guy in the chair in this cartoon. Do you feel the same way? Let me know by offering your comments.
I attended Andrew Hudson’s Reinvent Event yesterday. It was kind of a Networking program. I’ll be telling you more about it soon here on the blog. Stay tooned.
You know the economy is bad when…
All of us by now are just a wee bit tired of bad economic news. How bad is it? Well, that’s where this idea came from. These are my favorite kinds of sports cartoons to do, ones that a large segment of people can relate to. Hopefully they go where every cartoonist dreams a good cartoon will go…the refrigerator, the office cubicle or break room or taped to someones cash register or the wall behind a deli. I once had some routine blood work done at one of those diagnostics places. When I sat down I faced an entire wall of my cartoon clippings. It was strange, to say the least, but it did make me feel like I was in good hands.
Another tainted talent
I miss those days when a guy put on a uniform and did everything they could to help their team win. Call me old fashioned, but there is something incredible about watching, say, the movie “Miracle”, a story based on the 1980 USA Hockey team putting aside their differences to upset the Soviets and win a gold medal. Even watching LeBron James on 60 minutes last night, reminded me of the selfish exploits of Brandon Marshall. LeBron said his whole focus is about team. Making everyone around him better and striving for the one goal he wants most, an NBA title. I only wish Brandon Marshall was more like that.
