Babbling With The Beeze And Other Ramblings

THE BEEZE has one of the great blogs on the net!

I look forward to each of his thoughts put down on digital paper.

Today I decided to take a break from posting crap that no one reads to play one of THE BEEZE's great ideas.

A game called The Interview Game.

Here goes :

1. If you had the power to put any one player in the Football Hall of Fame, Who would it be?

Chris Hanburger. He is my first CCC profilee.
SO MANY deserve it! The politics involved with the voters is frustrating, but I doubt there is a solution to appease all. This upcoming H.O.F. Class typifies the process. You see Derrick Thomas get in, though he is deserving, and wonder why others haven't been yet.

2. What would you want for your last meal?

I would probably have a hard time picking this. Maybe to try to stall? Ahhh, to keep it simple...maybe Fettuccine Alfredo?

3. Would you like to know the precise time of your death?

To quote the great Tommy Chong: No thanks man, I'm not into time.

4. If you could ask the President one question, what would it be?

"Would you say the route to an improved ecology is through better education first, or to try to improve the ecology along with trying to improve our educational system?" The reason is because the USA is now 3rd from last on earth in education...yet our planet is in need of some tlc.

5. In your profile, Under favorite music, the first two listed are...Flock of Seagulls, and Jimi Hendrix...If they could have performed together, what would it have sounded like?

Mike Score, the founder of AFOS, is a good guitarist. He started out as one on another band. In fact, he created (with AFOS guitarist Paul Reynolds) that guitar wash sound some may have heard the Edge of U2 use the past few decades.
Jimi was an inventor and innovator. We know he started distortion and feedback. If only those paramedics hadn't laid him down...who knows? I could see him having fun with all the toys that have come along in well as ones he probably would have invented.

Both men have one common theme = experimentation. You listen to Jimi's Third Stone From The Sun (the inspiration for my blog name) to 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be).... or AFOS' The Last Flight Of Yuri Gagarin to Tanglimara, and you see both men searching for sound.

I imagine it could work if they had gotten together. I see the theme being other wordly..outer space and such. Jimi would front the song most likely, which I'm sure Mike would have no problem with. Mike is a very nice man, and has always been very kind to me in all of the years that I have known him. The thought of those two men in a studio made me delve further than I thought I would as I began to answer this question.

Again, much thanks to THE BEEZE for allowing me to play the game.

Since this is the day of the big game for the NFL....

I know the Steelers look pretty damn unbeatable.

Still, I root for the underdog!

The Cardinals have had a long, strange trip as a franchise.

They have not won any championships in over 60 years!

Their last victory photo

They have had MANY GREAT players since then:

Hall Of Fame Safety Larry Wilson

Hall Of Fame Tight End Jackie Smith

Hall Of Fame Offensive Tackle Dan Dierdorf

Hall Of Fame Cornerback Roger Wehrli

American Hero Pat Tillman

I'll be posting an Almost All Time Cardinals Team soon, but those are just a few of their franchise legends.

I won't be upset if the Steelers win. We all know they had their own hard times as a franchise until the 1970's. But the Cardinals are an unusual franchise alike no other. The number of cities they have played in is astounding. They truly define the term vagabond franchise.

I am pulling for them. I guess it is because they were part of the NFC East back in their days in Saint Louis. I'd like to see them get a new trophy.

No other franchise in the NFL deserves one more than them.

If they pull it off, then my next under dog team may either be the Chargers, Saints, Titans, Eagles, Browns, or Bengals.

That is, of course, my Redskins don't make it back to the big game!

Great stuff. Glad BEEZE tagged you for this. I read your last blog entry, but to be honest, I haven't read as many in the last week around the net because of having to switch templates and put everything back in place.

I'm still puzzled by the Cris Carter snub on the HOF, but I really get the feeling with number of players at the position coming in that he could wait like Art Monk had to.

Anyway, glad we see eye to eye on No. 3. I don't want to know either.

I think AFOS and Hendrix would have blown the roof off the entertainment business teaming up together.

Nice job by you both!

Thanks for playing 3rd...Seems like most everyone I ask doesn't want to know when they'll die...I don't either!

But the one question I really wanted to know your answer for was #5...Great answer...That combination could have been something special...

Great job.

Cool interview.

Mo Morrissey said...

I really enjoyed this. Well done, both of you!

You know, I can appreciate the perspective of Seagulls and Hendrix...but...I'm not guying just yet.
