Never Take Points Off The Board

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Football Rule #1:  Never take points off the board. Once the #Saints scored the early field goal on Sunday, Coach Sean Payton should not have decided to erase the points and go for the touchdown after the penalty (especially running with Mark Ingram). Keep those 3 points on the board, and come back to fight another day. It was those 3 points which almost cost the Saints the game.  However, the #WhoDats were good enough on Sunday to overcome that early mistake.

Here below is a movie clip from TERROR NIGHTS based on my book THE TERROR SCROLLS.

Looking at the below picture might make up my mind to buy season tickets for the basketball New Orleans Pelicans.


Below is a clip of the movie Meet the Girls that I am promoting from my book Drive Women Crazy.

We Bury the Hatchet

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — In my blog today, I will attempt to answer my brother’s charges that I treat him badly because I graduated from Jesuit High School in New Orleans and he graduated from the nearby public high school Kennedy High.

I have more space to answer his charges on my blog. Here is Carl’s gripe.
from: Carl Delery. Re: Ferdie & his #JesuitHighNewOrleans experience.

To: Tevis (our life-long friend). There’s a fault in Ferd’s game plan, a braggadosious attitude. For some time now my big brother has found it fit to impolitely interject, with unsolicited criticismn my mastery of the English language. While I ‘playfully’ admonish his unwarranted criticism of my use of ponctuations and occasional spelling error. This so called Jesuit Boy was not taught humility along with his studies. I have taken it upon myself to give him his just accolades, while at the same time I feel compelled to throw darts at his attempt at educational superiority. This Jesuit Boy can bragg about Jesuit experience. Ask him about being first trumpet, or drowning attempts, or Lieutenant strips, etc. Please send me to Kennedy High where we were able to address the adversary and still learn, if you were so compelled. Goo Jesuit.

From: Ferdie Yes, Carl. However, I admire the many things that you have learned and are good at. You know karate. You know how to beat up and badly injure people. You know how to torture and lay heavy pain on people. You know how to break people’s necks and break bones. You know how to make people scream & holler, and run down the street in fear. You know how to choke people. Carl, these are all lovely and wonderful things to know. Don’t you know that I wish that I could do all those things instead of living my life in total fear. I wish that I could beat up people and strike fear in people like you do. I often think about moving up to New Jersey with you in order to learn from you, but I am afraid of coming back to New Orleans all bruised up with broken bones, etc.

Spell Well vs. Fight Well

a RePOST: @ Carl Delery Re: My knowing a lot of big words, and how to spell a lot of stuff. >>I wish that I knew karate and all the stuff that you know, Carl. You have the knowledge to beat me up. That is truly something to be happy about. All I can do is spell a lot of stuff, and say some big words. So what if I questioned your spelling? Who is the winner if you ever get your hands on me?
Also, in further/other news:

Note about link below: I am trying to link a post below. They make this stuff so complicated. Should be fixed soon.

Love, A Many-Splendored Thing

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Recently, I experienced a fine example of male-female communications. UPDATE: There are two sides to every story. The following is only my side of the story. Someone reminded me of such. Thus, I make this note and correction here. Also, I must note here that there was a third party and witness to the following. Now to continue, on September 1, I listened to a young lady happily talk about her lovely day. I was receptive with fairly, undivided attention. Finally, God forbid, I had a single, 5-word sentence to say; and was not allowed a few seconds to say it. Then, after I kept repeating the sentence over-and-over ad nauseam to get it heard in the conversation, the young lady narrowly focused in; but misinterpreted the 5 words I was trying to say. A heated exchange ensued in which I almost accidentally drove off the side of the cliff on the highway. I am sorry, but sometimes allow me only a few seconds to say 5 words w/o talking over me. Then, I will shut up again for the next 7 hours. I had promised myself to be a good boy on Sunday, but I had only 5 words that I needed to get in edgewise; and was never given the few uninterrupted seconds I needed. This is a pet peeve of mine: at least give me ONE turn in a conversation.

P.S. There are actually no cliffs in southeastern Louisiana :). Sorry! I meant that I drove up the wrong ramp on the highway, and almost got killed. I used cliff to be brief and to emphasize the danger.

Love is a many-splendored thing.

A Favorite Vacation Locale

Yes! Fun in the sun.

Yes! Fun in the sun.

Lockheed used to fly me into FLA to Cape Kennedy to work on the Shuttle.

@Tim Daniels >>I realized today that this is my 1st time in Florida since I retired. One of my favorite things about working at Lockheed was going to Cape Kennedy. I must have been vacationing in other spots and forgot about how much I like Florida.

P.S. @Tim Daniels >>I took more pics that I want you to see. I will post more today or Saturday… There is plenty “wild game” lying out here on the beach with their “toes” all out. Some of ’em have more than just their “toes” out. haha …I won’t show you those kinds of “feet” pictures. By the way, the wildest animal out here right now is ME!!!

Now that I am a truly wholesome guy I only look at the ladies’ feet. I do not allow my eyes to travel any higher than that because …well, let’s just say that I do not want people to think that I am an animal. If my eyes do wander any higher than that in the next few days, I will try to keep my mind as pure as “the driven snow.”

Plus, by the way, Hurricane Andrea crossed Florida as I vacationed to the west. I was beaching more westerly, and did not feel any effects of the Hurricane. It was beautiful where I am.

My Dreams of #SanaaLathan

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — If actress Sanaa Lathan would stand straight up and walk right off of this page into my arms I would fall to pieces. Yes, I’d be all shook up. You never know when my door bell or my phone might ring. I do not say that I’d drink her bath water b/c I never could understand that. But, I’d blankity, blankity, blank her. Of course, I cannot say what I’d do to/with her because I do not kiss-and-tell. ONE DAY!! Yes, one day I might get that call or that knock at the door. Don’t they always tell you to DREAM BIG?

A. Peterson vs. #GayMarriage

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Mixing sports with politics (the gay-marriage issue & the coming-out issue) is once again in the news. Top NFL #runningback voices opposition. Vikings’ Adrian Peterson is probably the best r/b in the league. He has now come out on the side of not liking gay-marriage. I looked up the definition of marriage. There are 2 definitions now in dictionary.com: a) union between a man & woman; b) gay marriage.

Adrian Peterson says he’s ‘not with’ gay marriage – NFL – SI.com

sportsillustrated.cnn.com

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – NFL MVP Adrian Peterson says he has family members who are gay whom he loves and respects. But on gay marriage, the Minnesota Vikings running back says “that’s not something I believe in.”Read More at Sport Illustrated: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2013/football/nfl/wires/05/27/2020.ap.fbn.vikings.peterson.gay.marriage.0158/index.html#ixzz2UVsBLJfK
My readers are probably looking for a clearer opinion from me. I must admit that I have to study the issue further. That is why I looked up the definition of marriage. I thought that looking up the definition would give me a clear-cut, black-and-white answer. However, now-a-days even vaunted institutions like our dictionary have changed to reflect modern mores/customs. Which, I must say, is actually the definition of a dictionary. Our dictionaries change, mend and bend with time.
The encyclopedia, however,  tells a different story. I subsequently looked up the word “marriage” in the encyclopedia. This definition is it my friends. This encyclopedia definition is how I roll! haha: MARRIAGE; socially sanctioned union that reproduces the family. END OF SUBJECT. CASE CLOSED! Adrian Peterson seems to be CORRECT.

NBA Playoff Bracket

(Delery Gazette) New Orleans — SORRY! There were errors in transposing the bracket to my website. I posted YAHOO’s bracket, but there must be some kind of lock or encryption on the HTML. So, meanwhile, I will leave here what survived the translation. If I can figure things out I will try again to post the bracket here. SORRY!!

My money tonight is on San Antonio. I predict that San Antonio will meet Miami Heat in the championship series. DUH!!!
