It's time to call it quits...
I know I've messed around with this idea before, but now after 3,605 posts, I really feel like this blog has run its natural course.
Since I started The Donnybrook back in December 2003, I've had some of the greatest experiences of my life.
My amazing wife and I had two incredible kids and have watched them grow into the smartest, funniest people in the world.
I finally got to watch one of my favorite sports teams reach the top of the mountain and bring a championship home to Philadelphia.
I've met and/or reconnected with some very cool people thanks to this blog, and I'm sure I'll still be talking to all of you on Facebook and elsewhere in the future.
Thanks for listening to what I've had to say and for continuing to read even at times when my level of creativity was almost non-existent.
It's been a real pleasure, everyone. It really has. Even when we've fought about politics, sports or whatever, it's always been fun.
Thanks also to everyone who contributed to the site. Especially john, who brought a very clear-headed voice to a website run by a dope like me.
Thanks once again to all of you. I'm really gonna miss this...

Fuck, shit, god damn it, fuck, damn it, damn it, DAMN IT, SHIT, FUCK, GOD DAMN IT!!!
This is how it feels to be a Phillies fan right now.
But I'm ok now.
UPDATE: Some needed perspective about the Phillies current woes:
Phillies record after 81 games in 2008: 43-38 (Went on to win World Series)
Phillies record after 81 games in 2009: 43-38 (Went on to win NL pennant)
Phillies record after 81 games in 2010: 43-38 (Go figure...)

Great Judgment, Great Timing...
Why do this? What is the point...to keep it real? to show that you can have a party without any gunplay?
Whomever is advising Mike Vick is not serving him well.
DOD Feeds BP...
- In fiscal 2009, BP was the department's largest single supplier of fuel, providing 11.7 percent of the total purchased, and in 2010, its contracts amount to roughly the same percentage, according to DLA spokeswoman Mimi Schirmacher...... the agency could not meet its requirements without BP fuel.

The head of the Republican party thinks Obama started the war in Afghanistan...
No wonder he got the gig. He's as ill-informed as the rest of these mouthbreathers...
"Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama's choosing. This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."And it's certainly not something the U.S. has been engaged in since October 2001...

Is Vick done?
With the Eagles for a few games due to suspension?
With the Eagles for good?
With the NFL for good?
As blind as Andy Reid and the Eagles front office tend to be when it comes to conduct issues the Eagles are not the Bengals. I don't think they'll be dumb enough to keep this congenital liar-thug around. This story is gaining legs and Vick has been less than truthful, a trait Arthur Blank and Roger Goodell are familiar with. Now Vick's parole officer can get to know this side of him. I think it's about even money right now that he is gone from the league.
"Louie" is friggin' brilliant...
Like Louis CK, the comedian, "Louie" the TV show is downright brutal...and hilarious.
It's on at 11pm on Tuesdays on FX. You've gotta see it...
