Quote of the Day
The Hell's Angels try not to do anything halfway, and anyone who deals in extremes is bound to cause trouble, whether he means to or not. This, along with a belief in total retaliation for any offense or insult, is what makes the Hell's Angels unmanageable for the police and morbidly fascinating to the general public.
Hunter S. Thompson

Justice consists in doing no injury to men; decency in giving them no offense.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Football is a chess game to me. If you move your pawn against my bishop, I'll counter that move to beat you. Football is the same way. I study so much film that I know exactly what teams are going to do. I love knowing what a offense is going to run and stuffing that play.
God pardons like a mother, who kisses the offense into everlasting forgiveness.
Henry Ward Beecher
