It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

Goodbye Johnny.


Oh, and to quickly change comments, YAY for McNabb and the Eagles for FINALLY winning the NFC Championship game. Speaking of that game, I think my favorite part, other than the end, was the Star Spangled Banner, sung by Timmy Kelly, who is blind (when he was born, both retinas were detached) and suffers from cerebral palsy. He was the first blind student mainstreamed in kindergarten in the School District of Philadelphia. How touching is that? Everyone was crying. OK, just the servicemen were crying; most of the athletes didn't seem as if they were moved all all. One was, but the rest were stony faced. Either way. *I* found it touching.

    dude... i can appreciate your being 'touched' by the singing boy. but no one else was emotional about it...
    understand that there were 35 mile per hour winds in the stadium and people's eyes were tearing because there was a freezing cold constant air being blown into them...
    emotional tears come from the inner corner of our eyes.. all others: irritation, yawning, colds - all come from the outside corner.
    Sorry to bust your emotional bubble, but no one knew that boys story and the atmosphere was far to pumped for it to have that kind of emotion effect on those involved.
    cheers
