The First Post

Inspired by mainly reading some rants and raves of some other bloggers (some very good, some not so very good, some really not so very good), email chains that get way to "off topic", but mostly needing a bigger forum than my Fantasy Sports trash talking message boards, The Peoples Champ decided to go mainstream and post his thoughts for the not so calling for public.
While I may post on anything my heart desires, the main focus is to take things that people take WAAAAAAAAAY to seriously and have some fun, whether religion, sports, politics, etc. While some topics might get serious (like the current so called Yankee demise), in no way does this mean I take myself seriously.
For the record (and more importantly to understand where this all comes from) I'm a "tryinghardtoaspiretogreaterthings" Orthodox Jew living in a "Picandchoosejew" Orthodox Jewish community. I have two wonderful children and a great wife. I'm an avid sports fan, primarily NY Rangers Hockey, Yankee Baseball, The Oakl-a-n-d Raidahs, and Boston Celtics.
For leisure I practice Mixed Martial Arts (I'm pretty good, so I can probably kick your .......) and love playing golf. I can listen to anything from The Grateful Dead to the Sex Pistols, Reb Shlomo to Pink Floyd and pretty much anything in between that doesn't hip or hop.

I am not a cynic. I'm an observer. As one astute individual wrote many years ago "a cynic is someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing". Although I might know the former, I surely know the latter. Many of lifes problems, both in the "Picandchoosejew" Orthodox Jewish community and the secular world at large would be non issues if our value systems were in the right place.

Oh yeah, I also write "teh" instead of "the" a lot so deal with it.

I hope you enjoy your stay and I look forward to the banter.

dabish,

I apreciate your comments, but comment to the right post!

As for the G.O.A.T Tag team, the competition was Tony atlas and Rocky Johnson, The Moon Dogs, The Strongbows, British Bulldogs and Mr. Fuji and Mr. Saito.
Degeneration-X and The Four Horseman do not qualify as they had more than 2 members.

steve,

you should start off a rant and rave about how most people are morons...

like when you are in the subway and some jerk off is standing in the doorway and then gives the look of" oh i didnt realize i was blocking the door and that people would actually want to get off"

or the fat guy who sits right next to you when there is a whole row empty right across from you...

Youre just proving over and over again how "normal" your family is.
