GG Eden: Video: NBC Sports: NFL 1980-AFC Divisional: Oakland Raiders @ Cleveland Browns: Full Game

.

Especially if you consider the playing conditions of this playoff game between the Raiders and Browns, this is one of the best playoff games of all-time in NFL history. Cleveland, Ohio just from Lake Erie in January with snow on the ground, even though it didn’t snow in this game. Frigid conditions, Cleveland Municipal Stadium that wasn’t just an outdoor stadium, but an open air stadium as well. Where the lake was just off of the stadium and the end zone by the lake only had one deck of seats. So there wasn’t any protection from that part of the field from the cold air and wind. So you literally felt the frigid wind coming off of the lake in that stadium from that end zone.

Which meant this game was a defensive oriented ball control power run short throwing football game. And even though the Raiders were the road team and from Oakland and Northern California and the Browns were the home team from Cleveland, the style of football for this game favored the Raiders. Because they were a big strong physical team on both sides of the ball. That ran the ball and stuffed the run. Attacked the quarterback and protected the quarterback. The Browns were a finesse pass first team that was questionable on defense and prone to getting beat by big physical teams that ran the ball very well.

The Browns of the late 1970s were called the Cardiac Kids for a very good reason. Even though they were a good football team back then and had pretty if not very good players on both sides of the ball, they weren’t great back then. And didn’t overwhelm good teams because of how good they were. They didn’t blow good teams out because they gave up a lot of yards and sometimes points as well. And were also behind a lot late in games and having to come back. The Raiders on the other hand when they were in the playoffs, they tended to win and hammer their opponents and put them away convincingly.

The Onion: Politics: Candidate Profile: Hillary Clinton

HRC
The Onion: Politics: Candidate Profile: Hillary Clinton

Here are I guess what would be the worst and perhaps the bluntest and downright most honest campaign themes for Hillary Clinton for president.

1. “Vote for me, because I’m a women! And it’s about time we had a female president.”

2. “Vote for me, because I can win. Because of my name, you like my husband. Oh by the way, remember the 1990s? Well my last name is Clinton too.”

3. For the Far-Left in the Democratic Party. “Vote for me, because even though I’m an Anglo-Saxon Caucasian and most of our president’s have been either Caucasian or Anglo-Saxon and most cases both actually, Caucasian women are good, unless they’re Republicans. And we aren’t as bad as Caucasian men.”

4. For the radical Feminists in the Democratic Party. “Vote for me, because I’m a women and I want to be President of the United States. Oh be the way, I’m a female Democrat and I can get elected. Because of my last name and who my husband is. And we were President in the 1990s, I mean Bill was President in the 1990s. And things were so good back then under our watch. I mean his watch.”

Now, of course none of these themes will be Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign theme. I mean she would have to suffer a stroke and become brain-dead or something for any of this to come true. Along with just about everyone who works for her, or informally advises her. But what his Hillary’s reason for running for president other than potentially becoming the first female President of the United States. And giving that to the Democratic Party. What does she want to do as President. When you have a paper-thin resume as she does and since George W. Bush, both he and now President Barack Obama have had that, it makes to tough to figure out what type of President the candidate would be. Especially when she hasn’t offered much in policy positions and vision to let people know what she wants to do as President of the United States.

The Onion: Sports: Report: New NFL Stadium in Los Angeles Could Create Thousands of Local Law Enforcement Jobs

LA Stadium
The Onion: Sports: Report: New NFL Stadium In Los Angeles Could Create Thousands Of Local Law Enforcement Jobs

This is probably the best and most accurate report I’ve seen so far about the NFL coming back to Los Angeles via the Oakland Raiders or San Diego Chargers, St. Louis Rams. Or some other club that doesn’t play in one of the big NFL glam markets, lets say. Meaning they are not in Washington, New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, to use as examples. Even though this report comes from The Onion. But keep in mind, The Onion’s reporting is just as accurate as Fox News. For all of you right-wingers who think The Onion makes things up.

Putting the NFL back in Los Angeles, even though it is the second biggest city in America and the second largest market in America and the biggest county in America, is about one thing and one thing only. The color green, meaning money of course. Commissioner Money Bags otherwise known as Roger Goodell sees a market of fifteen-million people and a city of four-million people. That currently doesn’t have an NFL franchise and hasn’t had one for twenty-years now. And sees all the potential for network TV money if there’s a franchise in Los Angeles. Thinking if LA has a team all the people there, or a lot of them will watch the team or teams there, plus the other football game there on Sundays.

What Commissioner Money Bags doesn’t understand is, is that Los Angeles is not exactly crying or even asking for another NFL franchise. Especially someone else’s that isn’t doing very well right now. Like the Raiders or Rams, two clubs that use to be in Los Angeles and Anaheim before they moved to Oakland and St. Louis twenty-years ago. Los Angeles, already has the NBA Lakers, MLB Dodgers, NHL Kings, that won the Stanley Cup a couple of years ago. They have both USC and UCLA football that is very popular there. So why would Los Angeles want to build a new seventy-eighty-thousand seat football stadium with hopes of drawing 40-50 thousand people a game and seeing the people shut out from watching their team on TV. Which is what happened to both the Raiders and Rams the whole time they were in the LA area.

If Commissioner Money Bags and the NFL was truly interested in making the NFL succeed in Los Angeles, they would think and act small and build on the progress that they make.

Start with preseason games in LA, neutral site regular season games between other teams like with the regular season kickoff or something.

Play the Super Bowl there again before LA gets another team.

Put a USFL spring team there and see how that club does there in the spring and summer.

And the last two things that are just as important as everything else. Put an expansion franchise in Los Angeles after everything else goes well. Instead of taking someone else’s team. So the people there can grow up with the new team and call it their own.

And only put one NFL franchise in Los Angeles. Because LA has never been a two-team NFL market and probably will never be one.

Los Angeles is Los Angeles and not New York. The cultures and people there are very different. LA is not as sports-crazed as New York or even Philadelphia and Chicago. And has a hell of a lot other things to do and keep them occupied outside of sports. Similar to San Francisco and Las Vegas. So for sports to work there, you have to think outside of how big and wealthy the market is. You have to plan and market sports very well there for them to succeed.

Jeff Eeee: Video: WB’s Charmed: Shannen Doherty in Leather Jeans and Boots

.

More reasons why Shannen Doherty should’ve been on Charmed longer than she was. To go along with being the very beautiful and adorable, sexy wonderful actress that she is. She was clearly the best actress on that show. And even though that show never had a great actress on it, they at least the original women on the show were all very good. Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs to go along with Shannen are all very good, but Shannen was the best. And she also looked great on it and took chances with her wardrobe that unfortunately a lot of other sexy American actress’s wouldn’t have. Like in this video with the leather jeans and boots and wearing that outfit to work on the show.

Charmed, might have been the only prime time drama/comedy soap opera, that had their actress’s in leather jeans on a regular basis in the late 1990s and early 2000s in America. The show went on the air in 1998 and this episode is from the first season. Leather jeans on women at least, had a little run during this time. But the low-rise designer denim jeans for women came out in during this period. And those denim jeans just got tighter by to the point in the mid 2000s sexy American women were now wearing skinny denims and skin-tight denims. And fell in love with them and wore those jeans everywhere, including to the office and out to dinner and everywhere else practically.

But on Charmed, you got to see beautiful sexy women in tight leather jeans. Skinny and skin-tight, at least in Shannen Doherty’s case. Because she has the body to pull the look and look great in them. And not have to worry about looking too thin or overweight in them. With her butt looking flabby, or belly sticking out. Or her crack sticking out when she sits down or stands up, because her body fit so well in those leather jeans. And she looked great in those jeans as a result. And it would just be nice if other shows like Charmed had the same sense of style for their actress’s as Charmed did. Because leather jeans when they fit right, look great on sexy women.

Harrie: Video: Dutch TV: Elle Van Rign in Leather Jeans: Second Edition

.

I don’t have a clue what Elle Van Rign or the other actors on this show were saying. I speak very little German and at best only enough to have an idea what people are saying when they’re speaking German. Let alone speak any Dutch other than Neder and Nederland, which translates into Dutch and Netherlands. Those damn English! Taking beautiful German and Dutch words and turning them into words that sound almost nothing like what they sound in their native languages. And completely anglicizing Germanic words. Whether they are German or Dutch. And I’m half-joking here, but that is a bit of an annoyance that I have with the English as a Germanic person of German descent.

But the Dutch actors on this show especially Elle Van Rign sounded very good whatever they were saying. But to be completely honest, I’m not posting this because I’m interested in learning Neder or Dutch. But because of Elle Van Rign and how she looked. As I said yesterday, leather jeans are fairly common at least with European women in Europe. Especially in Germany and France and Italy and perhaps Holland or Nederland as well. Maybe the women over there have better curves or better bodies, than they do in America. I doubt that, but they do seem to be more confident in their own bodies and how they present themselves in public, like on national TV. And this show is an example of that.

The thing or issue with leather jeans, especially skinny leathers, or skin-tight leathers, is that they’re more revealing than even skin-tight denim jeans or skinny denims. They highlight one’s physical attributes or flaws even more. That is why they’re probably not that popular in America. Because Americans tend to be somewhat sensitive with their private parts and it is harder to find the right leather jeans for one’s body. There’s also a cultural aspect to them where in America leather jeans seemed to only be for rockers or bikers male or female. And perhaps for Western culture. But in Europe, they’re considered mainstream trousers at least for sexy men and women. Like Elle Van Rign who has a great body for either leather or denim jeans.

Harrie: Video: Dutch Soap Opera: Elle Van Rign in Leather Jeans

.

It’s rare that you’ll see American women on TV and even in movies unless they are musical artists like rocker chicks, or biker chicks, wearing tight leather jeans, or leather pants in general. European women I guess are just more liberal when it comes to their wardrobes. Especially in public and perhaps more confident in how they look in leather. American women, especially sexy women, love seeing themselves in denim jeans of course and tight denims, skinny denims and skin-tight denims.

American women have made the tight skinny denim look not just popular in America, but around the world in general. But again its rare outside of rock and roll culture and biker culture to see women in tight leather jeans. Rocker women, tend to be more rebellious and more risk-taking than American women in general. But with European women on TV and in their movies, leather jeans probably not as popular as denim jeans in Germany, to use as an example, but they’re fairly common over there. Like with what see in this video with the hot baby-faced, but sexy actress Elle Van Rign. Who looks great in leather jeans.

There have been exceptions to this rule in America. Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the prime time soap opera Charmed had their women in tight leather jeans on a regular basis. Both Shannon Doherty and Holly Marie Combs wore them on that show and looked great in them. Because they’re both beautiful, but they also have nice legs and a nice butt. Which you must have to pull leather jeans off. Because they are more revealing than denim. And if you’re really overweight or, rail-thin, you’ll look even worst in leather jeans than even denim jeans or regular trousers. But leather jeans have never been very popular in America, as they are in Europe.

PBS: Video: Brooks and Marcus on Recording The Police, Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Launch

.

As far as cameras for police officers, I think it is commonsense. And would be a great way and perhaps the only way to separate the abusive and bad cops who go too far and as a result innocent people die, even if it is by accident, from the good police officers. Who do their jobs very well regardless of where they’re working and the community they work with. Because they know they’re being watched and can’t afford big obvious mistakes. And as far as cameras being too intrusive, that is part of being a law enforcement officer. They’re public servants and deserve to be held accountable like everyone else.

As far as Hillary Clinton for president, still early in 2015 and I’m already tired of talking about it. And I’m a Democrat, but I agree with David Brooks that there’s a market for a Center-Left, perhaps not Far-Left, but certainly a Center-Left Democrat to emerge and become Hillary’s alternative. To at the very least bring Hillary out of her closet and force her to run a real campaign. And let Democrats and other voters in to what a Hillary Clinton presidency and administration would look like and where she is on the issues. And can she bring in enough of the Far-Left of the party to win the general election. While still holding Center-Left Democrats and Independents.
