The Unauthorized Biography of Rosco P. Coltrane

When it's my moment in the sun, I won't forget that I am blessed, but every hero walks alone, thinking of more things to confess

Little Poppy

So I got a call from John this morning. John never calls me, I almost always call him. Kelly went into labor yesterday and little Porter Owen Pelphrey was born. Congrats to the proud parents.

Porter and Kelly are both doing fine. They will be able to leave the hospital tomorrow. John's parents are already on their way down there. Tom just has to find someone to preach for him on Sunday.

And since this is draft weekend, Mel Kiper Jr. hasn't been able to get any firm number on his measureables and his upside, but I have a feeling he will be in his Steelers jersey soon...

Going Up To 11, For Mother Earth

Spinal Tap is reuniting for global warming...

From the Washington Post...

"They're not that environmentally conscious, but they've heard of global warming," said Reiner, whose other films include "When Harry Met Sally" and "Stand By Me." "Nigel thought it was just because he was wearing too much clothing that if he just took his jacket off it would be cooler."

Spinal Tap has reunited several times since the film, but hasn't for a number of years. For the band whose last album was 1992's "Break like the Wind" the occasion warranted a new single: "Warmer Than Hell."

Reiner provided a sneak peak at the lyrics: "The devil went to Devon, it felt like the fourth degree/ He said, `Is it hot in here, or is it only me?'"
