To many, automobiles are simply transportation to get from point A to point B.  To me, they represent so much more than just steel, chrome, paint and rubber.  Cars have been my true love since I was very young.  They define us as individuals and say so much about who we are or wi...

Learning Something New This Summer!

When I was on vacation last month, I took a golf lesson. I never played golf, but many of my friends do, so I thought I’d check it out. I worked with a terrific pro named Matt. Lucky for me, Matt was a very patient instructor. Hitting a golf ball is a lot harder than it looks. But in the... Continue Reading

NFL: Thanksgiving Week

In Sports, Hosts & Personalities

The Atlanta Falcons hopes for a perfect season went down the drain last week when the New Orleans Saints defeated them 31-27 at the Super dome.  The Saints may have saved their season but the Atlanta Falcons are still very much in control of their destiny with an 8-1 record.  This week the Saints will face the Raiders and the Falcons take on the Arizona Cardinals. Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts continue to overachieve.  Not only did Luck set the new single game record for most passing yards by a rookie quarterback with 433 on November 4th he is on par to set the season ...

NFL Week 9: More Than a Game

Last Reply by Woodstock 1352739399.857 | in Health & Fitness, Sports, Hosts & Personalities

WEEK 9      One of the most intriguing and inspiring stories of this NFL season is the Indianapolis Colts.  They were the doormat of the NFL last season, finishing with the worst record in the league, they changed coaches and quarterbacks.  Not many people expected much of them this season.  Early in this year, their head coach, Chuck Pagano, was diagnosed with leukemia and had to take an extended leave.  As of my writing this, the Colts are in second place in the AFC South division with a 5-3 record and are riding a three- game winning streak.  Qu...

The Atlanta Falcons stand alone as the only unbeaten team in the NFL after Week 7 of the 2012 season.  However, they need to be on upset alert as they put their perfect 6-0 record on the line against the Philadelphia Eagles this week in the “Battle of the Birds.” The Eagles offense can soar high on the wings of Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson.  Of course, the Falcons have been flying high all season behind quarterback Matt Ryan and receivers Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. The Houston Texans have the second best record in the league at 6-1.  After putti... Continue Reading

NFL Week 5: Celebrating The Past and Future

Week five of the NFL season brought us history and a glimpse into the future. Drew Brees passed his way past the late, great Johnny Unitas in the record books by throwing a touchdown pass to Devery Hendersen with two minutes and fifty-eight seconds to go in the first quarter against the San Diego Chargers.  That marked 48 consecutive games in which Mr. Brees has thrown a touchdown pass thereby setting a new record.  He threw two more touchdown passes in that game and led his Saints to their first victory of the season.  I was happy for Drew and the Saints (and relieved since I ...

As a little girl I remember Sundays as the one day each week where the TV's blared in every room, windows were open wide to let in the cool fall air and every once in a while you'd hear my dad shout: "GO GO GO!! TOUCHDOWN BABY!!!" Even the neighbors would call out from across the street to find out which game we had tuned in so they could join in the excitement.

You Are What You Eat: 10 Ways to Maintain a Healthy Diet

"85% of it is diet." Astounding. That's what a trainer told me once about the exercise to diet ratio, and the older I get, the more I'm sure that it's true. I think we all overestimate the calories we burn, and underestimate the calories we eat, so let's talk about the eating. There are so many different eating programs out there it can make your head spin. So which one is right for you? The one you can live with! If it's unhealthy, you can't live with it.

Hey, NFL fans! The season is in high gear and each game becomes increasingly important as we move into the second half. One of the biggest games this weekend will be Detroit at Denver. Lions’ fans are hoping that quarterback Matthew Stafford will be good to go following an injury he suffered late in the game last Sunday against the Falcons.

The quarterback carousel is in full swing as we head into Week 7 of the NFL season. It looks like the Vikings are scrapping their plans to have veteran Donovan McNabb lead their team. This week, rookie Christian Ponder takes over as signal-caller and the team prepares for a visit from defending Super Bowl champions, the Green Bay Packers. When Washington visits Carolina on Sunday, John Beck will be under center replacing Rex Grossman. Finally, Tim Tebow gets his big chance to start in place of Kyle Orton when the Broncos visit the Dolphins on Sunday...

OK, here are my big “surprises” as we head into Week 6 of the NFL.

Week 4 of the NFL

In Sports, Hosts & Personalities

The NFL season gets more exciting with every week! The word “parity” is thrown around a lot this year when referring to the NFL. Parity basically means that the league in general is more competitive. Every game is a battle. With only three undefeated teams going into this weekend, parity is “alive and well” in the NFL. From my view,  the most interesting matchups this week are the Lions at the Cowboys, the Steelers at the Texans, the Jets at the Ravens, and the Patriots at the Raiders. I’m a huge Lions fan, but this week they are in for a battle in Dallas.&n... Continue Reading

Big questions linger about the status of Tony Romo and Michael Vick as we head into Week 3 of the NFL season. Romo actually broke a rib in the Cowboys game against the San Francisco 49ers, but came back to lead his team to an important win in overtime. It was a very gutsy performance. Vick, on the other hand, suffered a pretty serious concussion when he collided with a teammate late in the Eagles battle against the Atlanta Falcons. Both quarterbacks showed up for practice this past Thursday, but neither actually practiced. There's no doubt that both teams will be... Continue Reading

Week 1 of the NFL was filled with all the excitement and drama that we, as fans, have come to expect. This early in the season, the defenses are usually way ahead of the offenses. With this year's lockout delaying summer camps, I really expected low-scoring games and less yardage on offense. Yet, the Green Bay Packers exploded with 42 points against the New Orleans Saints, and behind Tom Brady, the New England Patriots' offense rolled up big points and big yardage. Brady threw over 500 yards while Chad Henne (a former Michigan quarterback like Brady) passed over 4... Continue Reading

The first NFL pre-season game for the 2011 season is scheduled for August 7.  If the NFL Players’ Union and the NFL owners do not hammer out a deal this week then the first week of pre-season probably will be canceled.  In my opinion,  this crazy lock-out has gone on way too long.  It is the first work stoppage since 1987.  If the first week of pre-season is canceled it will cost the NFL a total of $250 million in revenues.  Because of that I’m betting this is the week that a tentative agreement in principle is FINALLY put in place.  If that happe...

So it all comes down to the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Big Dance at the Cowboys new stadium on Sunday, February 6, 2011.  It’s interesting that two teams that are used to playing outside, on grass and in cold weather will face each other in a warm, comfortable dome in Arlington, TX.  So, the big question is who will play better on the Cowboys’ new turf?

This NFL season is shaping up to be the “Year of the Quarterback.”  Obviously, the quarterback is the most important player on any NFL team because he is the leader.  Great leaders “fire up” their troops on and off the field. Brett Favre achieved NFL immortality “on the field” this week throwing his 500th career touchdown pass to fellow hall-of-famer Randy Moss (please see last week’s blog as I mentioned this as a great possibility.)  Even more impressively Favre passed the 70,000 yards passing plateau to put himself in a stratosphere t...

There are now only five undefeated teams in the NFL as we head into a huge Monday night match-up between the 3-0 Minnesota Vikings and the 2-1 Green Bay Packers. This match up is particularly intriguing because Brett Favre goes head to head against his former team for the first time. He also starts against the quarterback that he mentored for four years in Green Bay, Mr. Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers is a solid starter with good arm strength and accuracy. Needless to say, this will be the biggest game of his career. Favre is quickly approaching 40 years of age but he showed us last Sunday that h... Continue Reading
