All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


One More Football Post

For weeks the players plotted behind the coach's back.  They made a decision.  They devised a plan to get as close to a touchdown as they could without actually scoring.  Not scoring.  Under no circumstances was the ball carrier to score.  None.  Even if it meant taking a dive on the one yard line.  No one was going to cross the goal line.  No one.  For no reason.  The stakes were too high and the team had a plan.

Strange strategy for a football team.  Did the QB owe some gambling debts he couldn't pay?  What sordid reason did they have for doing something that could easily cost them the game?

Yeah the kids are all right.  More than all right, you just watched the best play in the entire sport of football for the 2013 season.  May God bless those boys for it and may more teams implement it, especially if it does cost them the game.
