I Got Older, Carl Pohlad Didn't

Quick, name one other famous person who died on January 5th, no fair looking at Wikipedia. One hint, it was on the day I was born and there is a slight relation to tobacco.

I have a birthday, go to California for a little more than a day and big stuff happens….

Vikings Lose a Playoff Game. Sorry, that’s not a surprise or big news. But to some folks it’s a big deal. As someone who was a kid when the Vikings lost four superbowls; was in my 20’s when Darrin Nelson dropped a NFC Championship-clinching pass in the endzone; and my 30’s when the ’98 Vikings choked, I just can’t get that worked up about another disappointing season. I’m not impressed by Brad Childress’ game planning, QB developing, or game management skills so don’t look for a huge improvement next year either. Sorry.

Carl Pohlad Dies. He was worth $3.8 billion, lived to 93, sired Madonna and Bono… dude lived a long, successful, and productive life. He saved the Twins from perennial cheapness of the Griffith years (for which I am eternally grateful) only to employ his own brand of cheapness (for which I am not). His efforts to contract the Twins, while probably a stunt, forever harmed my opinion of what he meant to the Twins, but the guy could sure make money. And unlike the bandits who fashion themselves as businessmen today, he did it the old fashioned way -- by outworking everyone else in the room.

Al Franken U.S. Senator. Thank God, I am not sure we could have handled another 6 years of Norm Coleman and his smile that was more fake than his principles. Al Franken might surprise some people about the seriousness he will bring to his new job. In one way it will be easy as his standing among most Minnesotans is pretty low. On the other hand a lot of people are just going to be ready to pounce on any Franken screw up.

i like your article about I Got Older, Carl Pohlad Didn't - Lost Forest After Dark Very goood.

Would that we could trade the greatest leaders of our time for ONE that held reverence and respect for our Constitution, the ideals, and propositions it set forth. It was not set up to be interpreted, ignored, and twisted to meet the desires and whims of whatever lack-wit decides to abuse that great work for their own gain. As Mr. Crocketts eyes were opened, I hope that, before it is too late,many others will open. Maybe our current leadership will cause this to happen?

Awesome post! I've been trying to come up with a good internet business idea for a while. Instead, I have come up with a great non-internet business idea, which kind of sucks in a way because this idea requires a lot of money, as opposed to a full internet-based business that might not require that much to get it started. I'm not giving up though. I recently started a blog where I plan to document my steps for starting my company. I figured it would keep me motivated and force me to keep at it. I also hope it will motivate the readers to keep trying to accomplish their goals. By the way, I love your site. I'll be adding it to my list of interesting blogs.

After reading some of the comments on this blog, I'd have to say I'm in agreement with the majority.

What is the hardest thing in the world To think.

My friend and I were just talking about this specific subject, she actually is normally attempting to prove me completely wrong! I am about to show her this blog post and rub it in a little!

I disagree, this really isn't all that great, I've got no idea why so many people think this is good.

Why is everyone saying this is good? It's boring and really not that exciting or inciteful, there's a million other people saying exactly the same thing.

@Sam I know what your mean. In todays economy its difficult to find a job that pays good enough to live on and is stable. I have discovered that if you just work hard and are consistent you can go places. Look at the author of this page, they are obviously a hard worker and have just been consistent over time and are now enjoying at least what would appear as somewhat of a success. I would encourage everyone to just keep hustling and moving forward.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

SC: FYI, there ARE LAWS that govern the agendas you speak of while there are no laws at this moment that govern same-sex marriages or civil unions. There are 5 or fewer States that permit same-sex marriages or civil unions, but what is that to you on a personal level? These individuals have not invaded your life-style nor invited you into their bedroom; quite frankly, you have no beef with them other than the fact that their belief opposes yours and your ideal of Utopia. If indeed a same-sex relationship is against God, then leave it to God to deal with; otherwise, as a believer in Biblical Scriptures, you are violating Gods admonishment Judge not, lest ye be judged.
