Bleacher Report: Video: Washington Redskins: 2013 NFL Draft Team Needs



The Redskins aren't I believe a Super Bowl contender yet at least with what they have now. But definitely a playoff team and a contender in the NFC East. But for them to take the next step and be a serious National Football Conference contender where they are not only advancing in. The NFC Playoffs and not losing the wild card game and getting to the NFC Final for the first time since 1991. And of course winning that game and getting back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1991. They need some help in some key areas through either the NFL Draft and perhaps trading up or in. Free agency and they need another corner back to go along with Deangelo Hall someone who locks down. Their man but also a threat to pick off passes and they need a free safety who erases mistakes. And depending on how Brian Orakpo and Adam Charriker come back in 2013. They are going to need another stud pass rusher who consistently beats. Their man one on one and gets to the QB but also. Strong against the run to help out Ryan Kerrigan on the other side.

The Redskins take care of these needs in 2013 and you looking at hopefully a healthy Fred Davis back at H Back. Who would be another weapon for Robert Griffin to throw the ball to. To go along with Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcone and of course Griffin comes back from injury. Successfully and the Redskins will be contenders in the NFC in 2013 and we'll see what happens from there. They are a good football team right now on both sides of the ball with how they finished in 2012. But they are a few players away from being a Super Bowl contender.

USA History Writer: Video: FNC's The O'Reilly Factor: Bill O'Reilly Interviews Fran Tarkenton



I guess I have mixed feelings about Fran Tarkenton who is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time. And probably would be in my top ten, but I like a lot of other people who follow the National Football League I judge QB’s by not only how they play in big games, big regular season games that determine division championships, playoff positioning as well as playoff games, but I also judge QB’s by how they played in the biggest game. Which of course is the Super Bowl and yes you can argue that those Minnesota Vikings teams were the second best team in each Super Bowl that Tarkenton was involved in.

And I’m not looking down on Fran because the Vikings lost all of those games. But I’m looking down on him for the fact that he didn’t do everything that he could to lead the Vikings in winning those games. He had three shots at the Super Bowl and didn’t play very well in any of them, couldn’t even get the Vikings to the end zone in Super Bowl 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. A game where the Vikings defense played very well and kept them in the game the whole way, but where their offense did almost nothing.

So that’s where Fran Tarkenton comes up short with me, but as far as how QB’s have done before the Super Bowl, Fran is one of the best of all-time in games before the Super Bowl, not many better. John Unitas, Joe Montana, John Elway, maybe Roger Staubach. Not necessarily in that order, but Unitas is number one with me at least overall. And if you look at QB’s and what they are able to do with the tools that they work with and the talent they have around them, Fran is one of the best ever.

Fran is one of the best of all time, leading a mediocre New York Giants team in the late 1960s to a winning record. Didn’t have a running game or a very good offensive line to use as an example. Defense came up short as well, but he was a great QB who always knew who to throw the ball to and how to get the ball to the available talent that he had. Like WR Homer Jones and TE Bob Tucker who were good players, but this wasn’t the West Coast San Francisco 49ers or any team like that. But Fran got the most out of what he had to work with.

In defense of Fran Tarkenton, this idea that he had a weak arm. If you look at his highlight films, you see him completing a lot of long passes and he did have good WR’s. Like Sammy White, John Gilliam, Ahmad Rashad, Chuck Foreman was the Roger Craig of his era and like another WR. And you also see Fran drilling some passes into tight coverage. He didn’t have a cannon, but a strong enough arm to make the right throws. And the Vikings of that era were a possession passing team anyway. So he was a great QB, but I don’t have him up higher because he came up short on the biggest stage three times and never came up big.

Once In A Lifetime: Video: New York Cosmos History: TV Coverage of The NASL



When you centralize your TV coverage around one franchise which is what ABC Sports did with the New York Cosmos. You are telling the rest of the country that the rest of the league. The North American Soccer League isn't very good and not worth showing except when they play the Cosmos.

Calvin Klein: Brooke Shields 1980 Calvin Klein Jeans Commercial

Brooke Shields is 15, maybe at the time of this commercial and yet she was as beautiful and sexy as a 21 year old woman. She was just far ahead of her time and someone who developed real fast both physically and personally, which is why her career got off to such a fast start both as an actress and as a model. 1980 America was at the height of the designer jeans revolution when it comes to American fashion and culture. Gone were the baggie hippie jeans of the late 1960s through the mid 1970s. And in came skin-tight perhaps what would be called designer jeans today, of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Jeans that were real tight, yet that sexy women loved wearing, because they showed their bodies so well and looked good. And were actually fairly comfortable. Not just designer jeans, but designer denims with boots. Women were wearing this combo all the time and everywhere in the late 1970s and early 80s. They were all over TV and in the movies, especially on sitcoms like Mork and Mindy, Threes Company, Too Close For Comfort and several others. And why not have Brooke Shields who was already a star at this point, model your designer jeans for you.

Martu Uussia-Televisia: Wounds of a Lover- Sexy Mexican Soap Opera

Source: Martu Uusia-Televisia: Heridas De Amor Capitulo

Here's a Mexican soap opera from Televisia TV taking place on a what at least in America and perhaps in Mexico would be called a Western ranch. What we call in America Western culture is pretty popular in Mexico, but they have their own Western culture that is not that different from what you see in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. But takes place in states in Mexico like Tijuana. If you watch the Spanish soap operas on Telemundo and Univision, a lot of them at least when I was watching them on a regular basis ten-years ago or so took place on ranches.

I love these types of shows because it combines the drama, backstabbing, ulterior motives and humor of a good soap opera. With cowboy and cowgirl culture and you get to see all of these Latin beautiful and sexy cowgirls like you see in this video throughout the show. It is sort of like watching Rodeo Girls on A&E, if you are familiar with that, but it takes place in Mexico or perhaps Argentina or somewhere else in South America. Instead of the Southwest or Mountain West in America.

A very cute and yet sexy girl, in a tight t-shirt, skinny denim jeans, in thigh high boots. In the kitchen (so to speak) acting as if she's washing dishes or something. I don't know of a lot of women who wash dishes in thigh high boots and generally just wear boots like that when they're going to club or something and for obvious reasons. Because these boots are what known as hooker boots. That hookers and prostitutes wear on the street and generally not with jeans, but with short skirts. Or you'll see strippers wearing those boots at strip joints. Musicians on stage and in concert, will wear them from time to time as well. Especially if they're pretty young and sexually provocative. Again as a Liberal I'm a to each his own, live and let live kind of guy. But I'm not interested in women who look like strippers and wouldn't date or go without with a women who dresses like a stripper. I love the jeans in boots look and love that look with tight t-shrts. But it's called jeans in boots, because they're jeans and boots and you're supposed to be able to see the tight denims with the boots. And not just supersize boots over jeans.

CBS: CSI Miami's Rest in Pieces: Raquel Welch Guest Stars

Source: CBS-Raquel Welch-
Source: CBS: CSI Miami- Behind The Scenes: Rest In Pieces

Raquel Welch, not only playing a grandmother, but a bad girl on the same show. Nope! Sorry, not buying it. For one, she’s still too damn hot to be playing a grandmother. Maybe when she turns a hundred will she finally be able to pull off the grandmother. And maybe pigs will be flying and Mississippi will become an Islamic State by them. With Billy Joe and Jimmy Ray, wearing turbans as well. And two, she’s too damn cute to be playing a bad girl. Well actually that works for her, because she would be one of the last women people would assume as a bad girl, because she’s still real hot and has the baby-face going for her when she smiles, or is even pissed off. In all seriousness this looks like a good show and I wish I had watch it. Because Raquel is on it, but it looks like a good episode as well.

Horatio, (played by David Caruso) I guess the lieutenant on this show. Really has his work cut out for him. The lead criminal is a red-hot Latina goddess and his professionalism will really be put to the test on this show. He’s going to have to try to catch a women and put her organization away without falling for the urge to want to bang her. (Good luck Chuck!) Or at the very least get very close with Vina Navarro, (played by the red-hot Raquel Welch) who is the leader of a very powerful crime family in Miami. Responsible for several murders and runs a narcotics operation. Perhaps has politicians in their back pockets. A really bad crew as far as the damage they can bring. And Horatio almost has to do this job blindfolded, at least when he’s around Vina, or has David Caruso put it in the promo for this show, he may fall for her power and sex appeal and be sucked in by her.

David Caruso, I believe at least is a great actor. He plays the tough smart cop very well, as you see on this show and if you’re familiar with the movie Body Count back in 1998, he also plays the wise-cracking funny bad guy stoned killer as well. Someone who knows what they want and won’t let anyone stop him. Who also can make you laugh knows how to put people in their place with humor. Raquel Welch, is still so red-hot that she’s been banned from both the North and South poles, because they don’t want any more ice to melt. Scandinavia, doesn’t want her in the winter either. (Ha, ha) And yet she’s also a hell of an actress who uses her tremendous sex appeal and adorability as an actress to bring viewers in, but has this great charm and credibility as an actress that you believe whatever role she’s playing, because she’s playing it. This looks like a real good show and hopefully I’ll see it on demand, or in syndication.

Hot Girl GoGo Tang: Babe in Tight Leather Miss Sixty Jeans


Source: Leather Honeys-

There are times that I certainly write pieces for the pure pleasure of it. And in this case this would be something that would make me feel good and a lot of other guys would feel good, but if someone from the Christian-Right, Moral Majority and that club ever saw it, they would try to send me to hell. That hell would probably be a prison, because that is the closest that they could get to. But when you post a video of a sexy women in all black, including skin-tight black leather jeans that Jim Morrison The Lizard King would be proud of and she's showing her asset, you're not speaking to a church, or a so-called family values group.

I'm not a fan of what is called hard-core porn. And for me that is basically very sexy naked women, or women who only cover up their boobs and lets say mid-section, leaving their legs and chess bare. But I do like sexy women in tight outfits. Especially women in tight jeans and boots. Love leather jeans models, like you see in this video. Love cowgirls, biker women and athletically built women entertainers and women I just see on the street. You don't have to be pornographic to look sexy. You can look sexy and even where tight outfits. Including with skinny denim and leather with boots and other pants and skirts and look sexy, but not have to look like you work at a sex shop.

Sexy women to me, are stylish women. A porno star, would probably get my attention and I'm sure I would check her out. But a sexy stylish women with a nice body who knows how to show her body without being practically naked will be in my memory. And I'll be thinking about her and want to get to know her, because a women like that probably has more going on for her than just her body. But a women who feels the need to be half-naked on a regular basis, or does that to make a living, probably doesn't have much else going on for her.

David Von Pein: Bedside Interview With Jack Ruby, 12/16/1966

LHO Assassin
David Von Pein: Bedside Interview With Jack Ruby, 12/16/1966

The Jack Ruby episode is a perfect example of why so many conspiracy theories came about after the John F. Kennedy assassination. Because first an American president is assassinated and then the assassin, or at least accused assassin is shot and killed as well. And left many Americans to believe that this is too unreal and can't be natural acts. And that something is up that would explain these crazy activities from happening like forces in the Federal Government working to see that Jack Kennedy and Lee Oswald are killed. Because they saw Jack Kennedy as a threat and that Lee Oswald knew too much about not only the assassination itself, but the all of the powers associated with the JFK assassination. And didn't want their power and control to be threatened.

We'll never know the full story of what Jack Ruby knew about this case, because he died three years after the JFK assassination. And we might already know everything that he knows about this case. But Jack Ruby and his associations with organized crime figures in Dallas and the hatred that the Italian Mafia had for President Kennedy and his administration leave a lot people wondering if they put Ruby up to killing the President, because they didn't want Oswald to talk. The only conspiracy theory that has any credibility whatsoever that leaves intelligent sane people like Robert Blakey who worked for the House Assassinations Committee wondering if someone other than Lee Oswald was involved in the JFK assassination is the possible organized crime connection.

A short but sweet video I guess. I like the women, but it would’ve been nice to of gotten a better look at her face. And even more so I liked her outfit. She basically looked like a rocker or biker chick with the leather jacket and leather jeans. Which is a fairly common look for both rocker and biker chicks, especially biker chicks because leather and leather jeans are so practical with what they do and riding their bikes. Because the leather jeans protect their legs especially from hot bikes. And they look real good on biker chicks on bikes and they are a great way for sexy women to show off their bodies especially their legs and butts. So this women wearing a sexy outfit, but this video was just too short for me and would’ve liked to of seen at least a two-minute video of this women in this outfit.


John Kelly: Lady in Cement: Hot Raquel Welch


Raquel Welch Swimsuit Edition
The Raquel Welch swimsuit edition, at least in a movie from 1968. Lady in Cement is actually a very good movie. Very funny as Frank Sinatra movies tend to be, because he was a very good comedic actor with a very good off the cuff sense of humor. This movie also has a lot of good action scenes in it as well and a hell of a cast. But take Raquel out of this movie and they would have to replace her with another goddess who if she isn't as hot, sexy and adorable as Raquel. She would have to at least be in her ballpark. Someone like Jill St. John who was in the first Tony Rome movie. (Any guesses on what the first Tony Rome movie was called) An actress like Raquel Welch brings guys to movies by herself. Because she's so hot and sexy and adorable and that voice and yet she can also act as well.

Raquel and Frank are twenty-five years apart in real-life and perhaps in this movie as well. And yet the Raquel character Kit, is attracted to Tony Rome, because he's Frank Sinatra. Well actually because Tony Rome is a very charming intelligent funny smartass, who is very good at his job. Rome is attracted to Kit as well, because, as if you don't know the answers to that! But he needs her for the case he's working on and she knows men that might have something to do with the murder he's investigating. If not did the murder themselves and he uses her to get to them, as well as please himself. Kit also tries to use Rome to get him to investigate someone else, with Rome telling her, "when I want it, I'm not going to trade for it." You can tell that they're very attracted to each other in this movie, but that Rome has a job to do and that is what he concentrates on. And its a very entertaining movie.

Rusted Televisione: A&E: Kennedys Don't Cry From 1975: The Story of an American Political Dynasty


The Kennedys-
The Kennedy I have the most admiration for would be John F. Kennedy. Who was our 35th President of the United States, after serving fourteen years in Congress both in the House and Senate. I like him the most for political reasons, because he’s exactly what a Liberal Democrat should be and is. But I probably have more respect for Edward M. Kennedy, Ted Kennedy of course. Just because he never changed, always fought for what he believed in and so-forth. Perhaps the hardest working and most productive person to ever serve in Congress. House or Senate and of course was called the Lion of the Senate a title he definitely earned.

With Robert F. Kennedy, I believe Bobby represented the heart of the family and what his family and Democrats should represent. And be about and I believe was one of the most effective Attorney Generals we’ve ever had in this country. Because of his work of making organize crime a national issue and importance and the people he was able to bring down. Along with his work on civil rights and the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Kennedy family, is the closest thing we’ve ever had to a royal family in America and hopefully the closest we’ll ever come.

The Kennedy’s, are the most successful political family we’ve ever had at one point having the Presidency the Attorney General’s office and a member in Congress. Since 1947, there has been at least one Kennedy serving in Congress House or Senate all the way up until 2009 when Senator Ted Kennedy died and was obviously out of Congress. If you’re last name is Kennedy and you look like you have a future, you’ll always be asked unless you are already in Congress, are you going to run for Congress, or the White House.

The closet thing the Republican Party has probably produced as far as successful political families, is the Bush Family of course. With two members serving in Congress. Senator Prescott Bush in the 1950s and Representative George H.W. Bush in the 1960s. George W. Bush, ran for the House in 1978, but lost, but they have had two president’s. So they’ve been very successful as well politically. I believe these are the reasons why the Kennedy Family is so beloved, or at least respected. Because of everything they’ve accomplished and of course the members of the family themselves.

The Kennedy Family, is a very likable family with very charming people. At times seeming more like a Hollywood family than a Washington family. Weighing in on all the big decisions of the day, which is why they are so famous. They are a story of rags to riches, at least from how Joe Kennedy Sr. started out in life and what he made of his life. And pushed his children so hard that they would never have to live in poverty ever. But it is also a family of tragedy and fortune. Having lost so much as far as life, but have built so much for themselves as well. A truly American family Irish, or otherwise.

Criterion Collection: Primary 1960- The Democratic Race For President


The 1960s elections especially the presidential election between Senator John Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon, were fascinating for several reasons. But it was a fascinating election season before Jack Kennedy and Dick Nixon won their party’s nomination for President. The Democratic primaries had two of the strongest leaders in the Democratic Party competing with each other for the Democratic nomination, in Senator Kennedy and Senator Hubert Humphrey.

The two Senators represented different factions of the Democratic Party and even different generations of the party. Even though they were both from the same generation officially. Hubert Humphrey represented the old guard, or what I call the Old-Left of the Democratic Party, the FDR coalition of Northern Progressives and Southern Conservatives who tended to work together on economic policy and foreign policy, but were different on civil rights obviously.

Senator Humphrey came out in favor of civil rights before it became popular to use as an example. And Senator Kennedy represented what I call the Reformed-Left, people who were called New Democrats in the 1980s, the true Liberal Democrats in the party. The JFK vs HHH Democratic primaries weren’t just about who would try to lead the Democratic Party in the next four years. But who would lead the country and which faction of the Democratic Party would lead the country in the next four years.

And I believe had Jack Kennedy not of been assassinated as President in 1963 and gotten reelected in 1964, the Vietnam War doesn’t happen at least as far as how the United States was involved in it. And that he would’ve realized how big of a mistake it would’ve been for America to try to win that war at least on our own. And what’s called the New-Left that came together in the 1960s because of the Vietnam War and the Great Society, against the war, but strongly in favor of the Great Society.

I don’t believe the New Left emerges that’s become Occupy Wall Street today. Because there wouldn’t of been a need for it and the old FDR/LBJ coalition would’ve stayed in place and the Democratic Party would look different today. Had Senator Humphrey defeated Senator Kennedy in 1960 and somehow gone on to defeat Vice President Nixon in the general election. The Democratic Party would look different today as well because again I don’t believe a President Humphrey would’ve gotten the United States as involved in the Vietnam War as it did.

And the New-Left or Occupy Wall Street isn’t in existence today, because again there wouldn’t of been a need for it. But the Reformed-Left or New Democratic Coalition doesn’t emerge either, or at least not as early as it did. Perhaps Senator Kennedy runs for President in 1968 and gets elected, but a lot of New Democrats of today that came from the Baby Boom Generation that looks up to Jack Kennedy and see him as our leader, I’m not a baby boomer I’m a Gen-Xer, but Jack Kennedy is a big political hero of mine. And I’m a New Democrat as well.

The JFK-HHH primaries was really about the sole or future of the Democratic Party and where we were going as a country. And what the Democratic Party was going to look like in the future. Which is why these primaries were so important and a big reason why people were so fascinated. Because JFK was new as a national leader and spoke differently and had different ideas and a different vision. As far as where he would take the country and Democratic Party. Against HHH who represented the old guard or Old-Left in the Democratic Party that were looking to expand the New Deal.

Very cute leather model. A little petite for men as a tall man over two-hundred pounds, I prefer taller athletic women over little cuties. But she has a great outfit here with the black leather jacket, the leather jeans and black leather boots. Looks like a biker chick, or perhaps a rocker chick. I just wish this combination was more common in America outside of rocker and biker culture than it is. Not many Americans have the confidence to even pull off leather pants, let alone leather jeans, with a leather jacket and boots to go with it. The worry about coming off as too sexy, or perhaps even worst and not having the right body and looking real bad in the. Perhaps they don't have strong legs and a good but and the pants look baggy. Or the pants are too small and they don't fill very well in them. But inside of rocker and biker culture and the occasional sexy celebrity, who does have a lot of confidence in their appearance, you'll see women and men, go out in public in skin-tight leather jeans, that they fit perfectly in and look great in them. Alisha Keys comes to mind and several others.

I wish Leathered Life, was as active now, as it was 4-5 years ago. Because if you love seeing sexy and I mean beautiful well-built women in tight leather jeans and boots as well, Leathered Life was probably the best place find images of women like that. Not that they had a lot of competition, but they're models are curvy with tight curves. And you consistently see them in Miss Sixty black leather jeans, with boots and t-shirts. Lena, one of their models there, is a beautiful baby-faced adorable brunette, with big curves and a very tight body. Looks great in those Miss Sixty jeans.

Unlike with denim jeans of course there not a lot of leather jean brands. Levis, makes leather jeans and so does Wrangler and maybe a few others. But Miss Sixty, specializes in leather jeans and they also make denim jeans. They're great with the skin-tight, or skinny jeans, both leather and denim. And they make them for women and men. What you see with Lara in this video, is a wide-range of Miss Sixty. The leather jeans, leather coat and leather boots. She's one of their better models at Leathered Life.

Leather jeans, especially for women, are pretty common in Europe and I believe in Latin America as well. But they haven't caught on very well in America except for the late 1970s and early 1980s and then came back in the late 1990s and early 2000s. They tend to be seen as very Rock and Roll, or biker and unless you come from that culture, women don't tend to be very comfortable wearing them. Unlike skinny denim jeans, where they wear those jeans everywhere even to work now. To show off their legs and butts. Which is too bad, because if anything leather jeans are a better way for women to show off their bodies.
