Brian Williams Is A Spam Man
Posted on 03.07.13 by Danny Glover @ 12:55 am

Newsflash! Newsman Brian Williams has a touch of redneck in him. The “NBC Nightly News” anchor is a spam-eater from way back and still likes Ramen noodles.

My mother’s goulash was one can Spaghettios and 1/4-pound ground beef. We had Spam. We had what everybody else had.

You know, I was a working poor. I’m on television in this market in Kansas, going home and making an art form of slicing, and if you’ve ever done this, you know. You take one can of Spam. If you fry an egg in that pan, you can make a Spam steak in a frying pan, and you can get four or five slices out of one can of Spam. With some toast, it’s a meal at night.

To this day, I like Ramen noodles. I do. … I like Ramen noodles … Hebrew National hot dogs and Spaghettios. My big three.

Spam and eggs, now that’s a meal. I’m not so sure about the Spam sushi Savannah Guthrie of NBC’s “Today” admitted to eating, but I’d probably be willing to give it or any other number of Spam recipes a try.

That’s what being enlightened is all about.

Joe Manchin, Then And Now
Posted on 03.06.13 by Danny Glover @ 11:02 pm

Washington changes politicians. No matter how much they may want to stay true to their roots, they start thinking like the people they spend most of their time with inside the Beltway instead of those they represent back home.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., illustrates this unfortunate phenomenon perfectly. The redneck who did this in his first Senate campaign …

… is now guilty of this very Washingtonian attempt at message control:

Manchin’s regression toward “typical Washington politician” has been gradual. He first started going weak in the knees about gun control after then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., was shot in 2011. Manchin voiced second thoughts about the “Dead Aim” campaign ad he had run a few months earlier.

There’s Only One Tavon Austin
Posted on 03.02.13 by Danny Glover @ 12:14 am

And he had a spectacular football career for the West Virginia University Mountaineers.

Here are two videos that capture the essence of Tavon’s senior year in 2012 — the first being the biggest game of his career and one of the best individual performances in college football history, and the second being a recap of great clips from the whole season:

We Mountaineers salute you, Tavon! Thanks for the memories.
