Wonderful tribute by my wife

A Tribute to My Mom!

Mom and I, June 2014, Two months prior to her passing Mom and I, June 2014, Two months prior to her passing

As I mentioned in my last blog, my mom passed away suddenly and unexpected. We do not know what happened yet and it has been over 3 weeks. I wanted to take some time to write about my mom and step away from the business posts for a minute.

My mom was a strong woman. She battled Multiple Sclerosis for over 15yrs. She never wanted anyone to know she had it. In those 15yrs she was a RN.

Roger Goodell Potential Replacements: Who Could, or Should, Be Considered?

Jon Taffer All the Way!

The Big Lead

Roger Goodell attempts to pull his own finger as he farts in the face of the league's coaches

Roger Goodell is under fire, and it keeps getting warmer. I would have never thought it was a possibility, and I think that it would not be if he and the NFL offices would have just come out and acknowledged what is likely the truth: as Ty Duffy laid out, the stance on domestic violence in the league has never been particularly strong (relative to other off-the-field incidents or even those on it), and the league was caught off guard by the Ray Rice reaction–and the power of video.

Instead, we now await a Deep Throat from the NFL offices, as there have been anonymous owner statements about Goodell’s deference to Janay, other anonymous sources saying that Ray Rice did tell Goodell that he hit Janay in the elevator, and an anonymous AP source saying he sent video of the incident to the NFL offices in April.

Porter, Trembley relieved of duties by Astros

Really suprising and I’m really starting to question Luhnow’s decisions…….

Tag's Lines

Astros manager Bo Porter and bench coach Dave Trembley were relieved of their duties Monday, the team announced. Tom Lawless was named interim manager through the remainder of the season.

Porter had been the Astros manager since the start of the 2013 season after being named to the position on Sept. 27, 2012 while serving as third base coach for the Washington Nationals. Adam Everett will join the coaching staff, replacing Trembley as bench coach. The remaining coaches will continue in their current roles.

The search for a new manager will begin immediately, the team said in a statement.

The Astros are 59-79 in Porter’s second full season as manager and have already surpassed their win total of their previous three seasons. They went 51-111 last year, finishing with the worst record in baseball for the third year in a row.

Lawless, who has close to 35 years of experience…
