Sports goes to the Dogs
I still can't seem to fathom why all of a sudden stuffing hot dogs down your gullet has become a spectator sport. I thought Poker coverage was bad but the recent barrage of eating contests on TV is just beyond me. I mean really, who cares if some idiot wants to eat 60 some odd tubesteaks in a single sitting. Are we, as a society, really that bored?
I can remember in high school at our annual newspaper staff party one of our photographers responded to a dare by wolfing a jar of whole jalepenos. He spent the rest of the night as green as one, too sick to enjoy the evening (which consisted of one of the greatest steaks on the planet at a place called Cattlemen's just outside of Fabens Texas). Didn't make sense then, doesn't make sense now.
I haven't been blogging much lately, partly because I didn't have much to add to the cartoons and partly because of a personal family medical crisis. I will continue to bring you cartoons as often as is possible in the coming weeks and will blog when I can. I've always thought of the readers of win,lose & Drew as friends of mine so I thought I give you an update as to why I've been in and out of the paper a bit lately and why I haven't been jumping on some obvious topics for cartoons (the Avs signings come to mind). Thanks for reading. It means the world to me.
