It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a very early Wednesday morning in beautiful Corfu Greece. I just finished recording a great interview for my sports show and figured I may as well write this blog post while my eyes are still open…

When I say early I mean 5am….

The other day someone sent me a message through the tab at the top of the site…..it simply stated; Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a rather dreary Wednesday morning here in otherwise beautiful Corfu Greece. The weather sucks and one of my favorite places in Corfu is about to shut down for the winter….

Starbucks is closing for the winter on Sunday….

I was never a big fan of Starbucks when I lived in the states. There are just far too many other options and since I’m not much of a coffee drinker hanging out at Starbucks just didn’t make sense…

Pizza Hut and me are a different issue. Back home I would probably not order a pie from there because quite frankly the pies don’t taste that good and there are a plethora of other options available….

McDonalds tastes the same wherever you go and fortunately for me they have a store in Corfu….and it’s open all year long. I prefer In and Out and would rarely if ever cruise into a Mickey D’s…..

Living away from America as long as I have tends to make one start to change their tune so to speak….

Speaking of changing ones tune I’m starting to rethink the entire Tim Tebow sucks campaign and starting to become a believer. I still don’t think he can hit the broadside of a barn but he does know how to win and winning is all that matters in professional sports.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in America…..everywhere else is just another work day.

I think tomorrow I will order a XL Meat Lovers Pizza with extra cheese, drink a Lipton iced tea from Starbucks with a couple XL orders of fries from McDonalds while watching a replay of the Jets getting “Tebowed”……

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

It’s Wednesday!

It’s a cold day in beautiful Corfu Greece. It’s been the sort of day where your nose starts running and you can see your breath. It’s also tough to hold onto the racquet but we made it through the morning tennis session as well as the afternoon session and after eight straight hours of tennis here I am!

Happy Hump day everyone!

You know what I like about the game of chess? Most really good players resign when they make a major blunder rather than hanging around wasting their time fighting a lost cause.

You know what else I like about the game of chess? Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!! A Tale of Two Joe’s

It’s a gloomy Wednesday morning here in usually beautiful Corfu Greece. I think it’s going to rain today and I really don’t care if it does.

Joe Frazier died on Monday which made me sad. I still remember watching the “Thrilla in Manilla” and had his corner not thrown in the towel he would have won that legendary fight with Cassius Clay. (source)

I’m sure Joe Paterno is wishing he were dead after his longtime assistant Jerry Sandusky was indicted and charged with over forty counts of felony child abuse. (online video)

What makes matters worse is that Paterno was informed by another assistant that he witnessed Sandusky in a compromising position in the Penn State locker room showers with a naked 10 year old boy.

One Joe loved children and the other one didn’t love them enough to protect them from an alleged pedophile. Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a crisp Wednesday morning in beautiful Corfu Greece. I’m sitting in my usual spot at the most beautiful Starbucks in the world staring out at the Ionian Sea sipping on Lipton iced tea.

It doesn’t get any better than that my friends.

For those of us living in Greece today marks the beginning of a 48 hour National Strike which means there will be a LOT of yelling and screaming, maybe a riot or two and possibly a couple of businesses burned.

And what will all of this ruckus accomplish? Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!!

I was up early working getting ready to do this posting as well as one for my tennis site and for no apparent reason the electricity went out.

The skies were clear. There wasn’t any wind or any other reason to cause the lights to go out but they still did.

After about 30 minutes or so the lights were back on and it was business as usual once again around here.

Fortunately I’m prepared for these things. I have candles located darn near everywhere around the villa and of course the resort has a generator that works like a charm in these situations so no one was put off for too long.

Being prepared for the unexpected is a good thing.

1Thessalonians 5:2-3

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

 

This day is not unexpected.

His Word tells us that day is coming.

What His Word doesn’t tell us is exactly when that day will be coming.

So many people focus on when that day will be but I have to wonder if they are truly prepared for that day.

Are you prepared?

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a funny looking Wednesday in beautiful Corfu Greece. It really looks like it’s going to rain today and to be quite honest I really don’t care if it does. This morning’s session was a good one so maybe a little break is in order…

Greece is imploding. Greeks in search of greener pastures are leaving here in droves and I can’t say as I blame them. There really is nothing here for them at the moment and families need to be fed.

Maybe this is my cue to skiddo…..

The other night I watched an ESPN documentary called “Catching Hell”. It is the story about a young man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was made the scapegoat for the Chicago Cubs not going to the 2003 World Series. Continue reading
