The Ravens successfully jumped all the hurdles to reach the AFC championship game by beating the Houston Texans in the divisional playoff game on Sunday. Their win wasn’t pretty, but it was still a win and it was their first home playoff victory since 2000. The game featured two defensive powerhouses and the Texans started their 3rd string QB T.J. Yates in lieu of injured...

Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell almost lasted with that title after a 2 and 14 season, and just one year after the Indianapolis Colts lost to the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami. But after Colts Owner Jim Irsay fired General Manager Bill Polian and his son Chris Polian, who was the team’s president, then hired Ryan Grigson as the new GM, the handwriting...

Now, the Oscar race is heating up with George Clooney’s The Descendants winning for Best Motion Picture Drama, and Meryl Streep accepting the Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture, and George Clooney getting Best Performance By An Actor for The Descendants. But before we get to the Golden Globe Award Winners List, here’s an interesting video...

Talk about being party to an extortion. This blogger saw a Chevron Ecuador-related post on Kerry Kennedy and thought “Man, never saw her name involved in all this much until recently.” Now, I know why. According to The New York Post, the environmental ambulance-chasing, ceviche-eating-while-planning-fraud-on-video, self-described “lawyer for the plaintiffs”...

Baltimore @ New England These two teams met in the playoffs last year, the Patriots were 8-0 at home but the Ravens literally ran all over the them on their way to a 33-14 victory. That day Ravens QB, Joe Flacco who was struggling with injury completed only 4 passes for 34 yards but you can guarantee that won’t happen again if the Ravens want to advance to the Superbowl...

The shocking 2010 video of an obviously deranged psychotic by the name of Clay Duke walking into a Panama City, Florida School Board meeting and opening fire on its board members, makes everyone, especially school board members, ask if that can happen to them. The scary answer is “yes,” if you consider how it seems we’re at a place in our society where our very...

The City of Oakland and Alameda County must reject AEG, the Anschutz Entertainment Group, from being even considered as stadium manager for the Oakland Coliseum, and for one reason: AEG does not have the best interest of the Oakland Coliseum in mind. Why would an organization openly court the Oakland Raiders to move to Los Angeles, work to buy a portion of the team at...

Mayor Quan with friends at Chabot event It’s an old cliché that almost everyone who writes about Oakland feels they must use. You know, it’s a gritty city. The latest one was the New York Times article that touted our new restaurants, which are great, don’t get me wrong. But the writer still felt he had to refer to our “grit.” I’ve never quite figured out...

This posting is a tribute to my friend Stuart Guskind, who passed away after an unexpected death this week. The video below gives us a window to remember Stewie by. Well, here the rest, but Stewie’s in Heaven now. The Dallas / Arlington Ft.Worth – but let’s just say “Dallas Super Bowl” – was marred by weather, bad planning, and a ticket fiasco so...

A lot of off-camera and mic and newspaper gossip flying around at the Consumer Electronic’s Show 2012. This is Friday the 13th here in Las Vegas, so I’m sure this day will reveal more interesting items, but for now, here’s what I’ve got. According to MySpace representatives, the new music oriented MySpace’s platform design will be redone for...

Any doubt about how California Governor Jerry Brown feels about Oakland, where he was Mayor of Oakland from 1999 to 2007, should be erased after his action to eliminate local redevelopment agencies state wide, one that will have a dramatic impact on Oakland, unless it’s blocked. To understand why, consider that the City of Oakland’s main developed area,...

I did wonder if the first question in Mike Mularkey’s head coaching interview in Jacksonville may have been something like, so what happened to your offense in New York on Sunday? But apparently Mularkey’s relationship with Jaguars General Manger Gene Smith runs a little deeper than that and thankfully for the Falcons their offensive co-ordinator is now the Jaguars...

Sony Bloggie Live, RCA HD, Flip Video – Camcorder Comparison, a photo by zennie62 on Flickr. This blog post started as an accident. Just before interviewing USA Women’s Soccer Stars Heather O’Reilly, Alex Morgan, and Brandy Chastain, blogger’s trusty Flip Video Camera (or really camcorder) was stepped on by someone in the crowded Panasonic / My...

CES 2012 Las Vegas is a (white and Asian) male-dominated consumer electronics industry environment. So much so that an organization like “Women In CE” – which serves as a networking and mentorship platform for women in the business, was needed some time ago. As a member of the San Francisco Chapter of Women In Sports And Events (WISE), I jumped at the...

It is an exciting time to be a Baltimore Ravens fan. Still celebrating their AFC North championship, Baltimore will host the divisional playoff game against the Houston Texans on Sunday. It is their fourth consecutive trip to the playoffs and their first home playoff game under head coach John Harbaugh. The Ravens beat the Texans on October 16 by an impressive score of...

Wie auch schon im vergangen Jahr, wurde die offizielle Keynote auf der CES von Microsofts CEO Steve Ballmer gehalten. Dieser Mann ist eine wahre Quelle der Inspiration, hält mitreißende Reden und versteht das Publikum zu begeistern und auf seine Seite zu ziehen! Noch dazu, dass Microsoft Highlight an Highlight reihte! Das Publikum staunte, Ballmer freute sich. So wäre...

At the CES, so announced are lots of celebrities showing up to present products at several booths. Many times it is not only a one hour show but they talk and present then more than three or four times. I bet for an American point of view, all the stars are huge celebrities, well known and loved by their fans. ...

Verizon’s "Borderless Life" at CES 2012, a photo by zennie62 on Flickr. Verizon has a front-row seat for press coverage. The setup is in the CES Press Room, and where this blogger met a number of representatives of the communications firm (and watched the Steelers v. Broncos NFL Wildcard Playoff Game too). Verizon is showing its amazing home, work, life...
