Have a Coke and a smile

It appears that the dextrosphere is panicking over the fact that an iconic worldwide brand closely associated with a nation of immigrants uses immigrants to sell its product.   For the record, as an immigrant to the U.S., I thought this Coke commercial was pretty neat. It’s a good reminder that people come to this country • Read More »

You stay classy, Seattle

Remember, we’re the hate-filled mysgonists racist homphobes who pre-judge people by where they live. Liberal Democrats never, ever do that.  What, never? Well, hardly ever.  A Washington state lawmaker said Sunday he was just engaging in some sports trash talk when he called the state of Arizona a “racist wasteland.” Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon made • Read More »

Yes We Klan

December 4, 2012 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Culture, Current Events, Guns, Kevin, Law, MSM and New Media, Politics, Sports.

In 2007, Washington Redskins free safety Sean Taylor was shot to death in his own home by five burglars. At the time, Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock wrote this about his needless, senseless death.  No disrespect to Taylor, but he controlled the way he would be remembered by the way he lived. His immature, undisciplined behavior • Read More »

Memo to Dan Patrick’s former sidekick

This is what violence towards women really looks like. Who, exactly, is it the misogyny-frenzied brutes in charge of administering “justice” to the Saudi distaff side are protecting—and from what? When they condemn a woman who’s been gang-raped to 200 lashes for “having sex outside marriage,” or give a destitute 75-year-old widow 40 lashes for • Read More »

You can take the player out of U of A, but you can’t take U of A out of the player.

“Ow! Thinking is hard!” This might be the craziest sports story I’ve ever come across. Needless to say, it involves a graduate from North Nogales Tech. NEW YORK (AP) — Washington Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other during a Christmas Eve locker room argument over a gambling debt, according • Read More »

Infested Bowl

December 18, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Infested Bowl | Filed in: Arizona, Football, Kevin, Politics, Sports.

Good to see that the NBA isn’t the only sport that has to worry about under-the-table deals and illegal payoffs. Past and present Fiesta Bowl employees have told The Arizona Republic they were encouraged to write checks to specific candidates and were reimbursed by the bowl. Such reimbursement would violate state and federal laws that • Read More »

Top Gun

Caleb asks “What kind of a shooting show would interest the general public?” and The History Channel may have an answer (Via Say Uncle). If you are skilled with a pistol, rifle or any other firearm, you could win $100,000 in prizes on TV’s biggest marksmanship competition show. The History Channel and the producers of • Read More »

So just what is this “Practical Pistol” sport you seem so taken, with, Kevin? Glad you asked. Here’s a quick diagram of the stage I worked on at the Rio match last month. Which looked like this in real life: Everyone shoots a stage slightly differently. Here’s how some of the best shooters (i.e. not • Read More »

No future for (AS)U

November 23, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 2 Comments | Filed in: Arizona, Football, Kevin, Sports.

If this were a normal year, right about now, I’d start talking up ASU football and talking smack about U of A football. But it’s not a normal year, because the Sun Devils absolutely suck, and the Mildcats are playing pretty good. Even the Brits (known for heroic stands against overwhelming odds) know when it’s • Read More »

Bang bang, bye bye

I’ll be absent with leave for the next few days from the blog, as once again I’ll be missing everything I shoot at competing in and RO’ing for the Rio Salado Desert Classic. ExJon, you have the conn. If I’m not back on Monday, execute General Order 24. Update: Back from shooting, and I didn’t • Read More »

And so it begins

November 12, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on And so it begins | Filed in: Arizona, Football, Kevin, Sports.

What? A player on a Dennis Erickson-coached football team getting in trouble with the law? I’m shocked, shocked, I say to hear of such things! Arizona State’s Terell Carr has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules coach Dennis Erickson announced Tuesday after practice. Carr was arrested on suspicion of three misdemeanors and booked into • Read More »

The Outdoor Channel is coming to Cox Cable

November 6, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on The Outdoor Channel is coming to Cox Cable | Filed in: Guns, Kevin, Sports, Television.

For sure this time! I get channel updates on my TiVo before the channels actually go live, and my TiVo told me yesterday that channel 161 will soon be The Outdoor Channel. Of course, my TiVo also told me to take the Phillies in seven, so you can’t always trust your TiVo.

My primers came in! And I only had to wait 3 months more than I was expecting! And here is the fruits of my labour: My very first reloaded ammo (the one the left, that’s a factory load on the right). Now to test them on the range and see how they work.

NFL to Conservatives: We don’t want your money.

October 14, 2009 | By admindude | 10 Comments | Filed in: Jon, Politics, Sports.

The NFL declared war on conservatives this week, loudly scuttling Limbaugh’s bid for the woeful St. Louis Rams. Bow the knee to Obama or pay the consequences: Two NFL sources said Wednesday afternoon that the Dave Checketts-led group bidding to buy the St. Louis Rams has dropped controversial radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh from • Read More »

I’m shooting my first-ever 3 gun match tomorrow morning up at Rio with my CZ, AR and new scattergun. If you live in in East Mesa, you’ll probably hear a couple of my wildly-aimed shots whiz over your head. Sorry ’bout that.

Death of a Sales Pitch

October 4, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin, Politics, Sports.

C. Edmund Wright points out the elephant in the room: How could two people with no experience with capitalism make a successful sales pitch to International Olympic Committee? Of course Barack and Michelle Obama failed in Copenhagen.  Their strategy could not possibly succeed.  In their academic arrogance, they thought they could sell a product they • Read More »

Pyrrhic Olympics

So what if the Celebrity-In-Chief is successful, and Chicago gets the 2016 Summer Olympics? Odds are, it’s going to be a massive PR failure for both Chicago and the U.S. Let’s review the most-recent Olympic Games in North America: 2002 Winter Olympics, Salt Lake City – Went so poorly that Mitt Romney launched his political • Read More »

President Barack Obama is temporarily shelving his efforts on economic recovery, the war in Afghanistan, Iranian nukes, record unemployment and health care reform to concentrate on bringing the Olympics to his home town. The Celebrity-in-Chief will jet with wife Michelle and Oprah Winfrey to Copenhagen, Denmark, where the power trio will kowtow to the corrupt • Read More »

Mind frame

September 20, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 2 Comments | Filed in: Guns, Kevin, Sports.

I was a commercial photographer for 15 years, and once someone found out what I did for a living (usually guys) the next question would inevitably be, “Hey, what’s a good camera for me” or “How do I take better pictures?” My answers to these questions were true, but rarely pleasing.
