Man, that sucks.


Several people may have various opinions as it relates to politics and the government, and several people (like yours truly) have no opinion and aren't on either side.  Mr. Powell was probably a man that lacked much, if any controversy.  A true hero IMO.  He served his country, fought for the USA, and put America first.  No bias from Colin.

Veteran NFL official Carl Madsen passes away

Mr. Madsen died on the way home following his work at Music City working the Chiefs/Titans game.  While not as known as guys like Mike Pereira, Ed Hochuli, and Gene Steratore, he was very-well respected.  One of the best in terms of replay; earlier in life, Carl served in the military.  To be more accurate, he was part of the US Air Force in the 70s.

Neumeier was on WBZ, not WNZ(which , I believe, doesn't exist).
