What I'm Thinking About Today

Tournament Selection Picksjrswift

Sun, 14 Mar 2010 21:52:49 +0000

OK, as usual, I am down to the wire but I’m going to get these in before 5 and post just to prove how much (or little) I know.   So here we go.  I’m not doing any fancy who won what conference nonsense, I’m just giving you the teams. Kansas, Duke, Kentucky, Syracuse, West […](image)

Vegas thoughts…not a trip reportjrswift

Fri, 26 Feb 2010 13:56:13 +0000

OK,  just a quick summation and a number of fairly random thought on my trip and Vegas in general.  Spent four nights (Saturday through Tuesday) in town, 2 at the Palms and 2 at the Gold Coast.  Flight was on SW.  Gambled quite a bit for me and probably played more slots on this trip […](image)

Should I be disilluisoned at 46?jrswift

Mon, 14 Dec 2009 04:30:40 +0000

Has been a bit of a rough year for some of my personal heroes.    In just the last 6 months or so, three people I held in very high esteem have experienced quite a fall from grace.   I guess I should speak to the Tiger Woods thing first.  I’m not really sure how to feel […](image)

Gloating and the obligatory bracketjrswift

Thu, 19 Mar 2009 03:27:25 +0000

Well, I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.  As you can clearly see by viewing the post directly beneath this one, I successfully predicted/guessed the entire field of 65.  I’ve been trying to pull this off for 15 years and always miss like 2 teams.  But not this time.  […](image)

2009 NCAA Tournament Predictionsjrswift

Sun, 15 Mar 2009 20:29:43 +0000

OK, so I never blog anymore but I did want to post (for posterity’s sake) my projections for the field of 65 for this year’s NCAA Tournament.  I really didn’t spend as much time staring at the numbers this year and I think this is an easier job of picking than any recent year.  So […](image)

Aftermathjrswift

Thu, 06 Nov 2008 01:58:41 +0000

I really try to be a rational, objective person and not “fall for” politicians and speeches but, whether I like it or not, I still (kinda) do.  I have to say that I was quite impressed with both McCain and Obama’s speeches last night.  I can’t remember a better concession speech or a better “I […](image)

The Fat Lady Singsjrswift

It was essentially over when Ohio went to Obama and Virginia locked it up.  It would’ve taken a miracle after that and no miracle was forthcoming.  As expected, California was an easy win and that put our President-elect over the top.  I think there is a chance that Obama wins all of the outstanding states […](image)

All But Overjrswift

Wed, 05 Nov 2008 02:48:56 +0000

Well, if things continue as projected, you have a new President and his name is Barack Obama.  There is now a consensus that Ohio will go for the Democrats.  I can see no scenario that gives McCain the Presidency if he loses Ohio.  The low end for Obama is now probably 338-200 and he may […](image)

Waiting for Godotjrswift

Wed, 05 Nov 2008 02:17:29 +0000

It isn’t not yet over and some people probably thought it would be.  I’m not sure that I was one of them though it appears the results that things may be a bit tighter than I expected.  Most of the close states are still up for grabs though several sources have now called Georgia for […](image)

Frankly, this is pretty boring…so farjrswift

ABC has called Pennsylvania for Obama which, if it turns out to be true, is very bad news for McCain. Pennsylvania and NH were the best chances for McCain to win a state that went for Kerry last time around. It appears he will win neither one of them. That path to 270 votes now […](image)
