Today’s View From the Bull Pen
Growing up in the late 60's and early 70's, I was a huge NBA fan. From Wilt the Stilt to Jerry West to Nate Archibald to my personal favorite, Pete Maravich, I loved the game and watched it as often as I could. Somewhere along the way, sometime after Magic and Bird, I lost that loving feeling, and, unless I just have to watch it for work purposes, I avoid The NBA at all costs.
This cartoon is as clear a comment about those feelings as I can make in less than 100 words. Inspired by the Eagles song "Wasted Time" which I recently heard while watching the History of the Eagles DVD, I think it is my definitive statement about how I really feel about the NBA. It all seems like a colossal waste of time. Don't you agree?
As always, your readership and your comments help to make the world go round, so please continue to add them. I will try to do a better job of responding.
There isn't a way to leave comments in the Bull Pen so please feel free to leave your comments under the latest cartoon that I post.

Two old Geezers, standing by the bleachers, chewing their players out all day. They’re pouting and sulking, snarling and hulking, Two Asses who grimace and bray. They can’t stand to…
Time for some Floyd Fame.
He was, after all, the foundation of the entire Broncos franchise. Isn’t putting Floyd in the hall of fame long over due. You can click on the Floyd Little cartoon and it will take you to the Floyd Little Hall of Fame page where you can join the cause. Todays cartoon sums up my feelings about the whole thing. Enjoy the Super Bowl and check out the blog on Monday for the cartoon. My prediction? Saints 34, Colts 31. OT.

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.
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.
