Play ball with NFL . . . or else

As the clock ticked down toward a vote, the NFL Network breathlessly reported on the long line of luxury cars idling outside a suburban Houston hotel waiting to whisk the rich and powerful back to their private jets and onto the next important task.

You can’t beat using bear grease

If we put our minds to it, we could learn a lot from the Native Americans who preceded the white man as masters of North America.

The other day while I was reading through some online fishing forums, I came across a picture of a new bass boat that was rigged with a 400 horsepower outboard motor. That's easily a 90 plus mph boat! Most bass boats rigged with an engine over 200 horsepower can run in the 70s. I can't imagine what a boat with 400 horsepower can run.
