Deaths come in threes

25th: James Brown
26th: Gerald Ford
27th: UCLA football

as someone on a fanboard optly pointed out.

After bringing down the Goliath of college football just four weeks ago, the Bruins rolled over and played dead as the Florida State Sooners went on a rampage in the 4th quarter to rack up 21 points to a come-from-behind-win.

Reasons were many, the biggest of which was Florida State's secret weapon which nobody from our team anticipated.

How can you expect our players to stay focused and concentrate on the tasks at hand when one of the star players on the opponent team has a name like this?

By the time I was able to breath again after seeing his name scrawled across the big giant TV screen at the Newport Beach sports bar, Florida State had scored 17 unanswered points over a short span of 6 minutes never to look back.

Do you see this as a sign of immaturity on my part? I once met a minister of Korean decent named Reverend Sin, but this Florida State player takes the cake. God bless him.

That's all I have to say about that.

Have a Happy New Year.

That's pretty funny :) But I wouldn't make fun of him to his face.

I would change my name if I were him. That's just horrible.

David, I am so very sorry for your loss, I know this meant a lot to you.

Just before I opened your blog I heard the news abut the execution of Saddam Husein - could that have been number 3?

Well, when they say deaths come in threes, they are usually natural deaths, not executions.

Is there a stupider expression on earth than "death comes in threes"? People die all the time.

I think they are referring to famous people.

It's still highly stupid. Famous people die all the time too.

Things only happen in threes if you count to three, then stop counting.

Oh my goodness!! I would have changed my name as well!

I hope you have a great and happy New Year, David!!!

At least Mr. Fagg is good looking; that makes up for the name. he he he.

Around where I live it seems as though death comes in fives or sixes. It has been horrible as far as death is concerned.

Oh I forgot to wish you a happy holiday and may the new year be full of many blessings.

Happy New Year, David!! Hope it is a great one!

My sister was telling me that she recently went to a minor-league hockey game, where one player was surnamed "Pecker". As could be predicted, jokes were flying everywhere.

Is it any wonder that he is a football player gigantic size? I would dare place a bet that nobody says anything to his face for fear of their own life! It is all about survival of the fitest and he looks to be close to the top of the food chain!

You said, "God bless him," so it's okay. You're not from the south are you? That's what we say down here about pitiful people. You know, 'cause you can talk crap about someone all you want as long as you say something to the order of "Bless his heart!" With a name like Fagg I think I'd make a special trip to the social security office real quick like.

David, you have the greatest sense of humor. Happy New Year.

Is that right? No, I have never been to the South. Does Dallas count?

I thought when you said, "you are not from the South, are you," I anticipated something like, "we have a lot of Faggs here."

No, I didn't know that is how people in the South use that expression.

I certainly wouldn't say Mr. Fagg is a pitiful person. His game performance was spectuacular with touchdown catch to turn the game around in his team's favor.

Heather - Happy new year to you too.

Brian - Likewise

Gig - I know it was a difficult year for you with several deaths. I loved your postings expressing some raw feelings

Thinker - My goodness, that is horrible.

JRA - No, I would never do that in front of him, but I just cannot see how you can keep a straight face.

Buck - thanks. Happy new year to you too.
