… Great and Simple Ad , Scarlett !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 1st,2014

.. I caught this ad , even though I am not exactly a Scarlett Johannson fan . Well , I am still not , but I am open to the possibility , now . She is unquestionably beautiful , no doubt about it . Also , a great ad . Simple , Dignified . Classy . Emerging Company . Known Company .

.. [h/t — BleacherReport]

.. [link] to the commercial .

.. I caught up with this because Sodastream is a good product , but more so is because it is an Israeli company , with operations in part in the West Bank [Judea & Sumeria] . Johannson has , until recently , had charitable food group Oxfam as one of her good works . She broke ties with Oxfam because of calls of her to split with Sodastream , and over their ops in the West Bank .

.. from what I know , Johannson is not Jewish , but has family that is . So , she is no dimb bulb . She evidently did her homework before she took up the ad campaign for Sodastream . She pretty well understood what she was getting into . Not the boycott calls , though .

.. this one is the ” uncensored ” version . The ad will run on FOX on the Super Bowl broadcast , but the last part of the ad , about Coke and Pepsi , will be edited out ..

= = = =     = = = =

.. yea , I am a football fan . If you are wondering , I am a longtime and lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns . So , you can say that I am a glutton for punishment [Ha!Ha!Ha!] …

.. yea , I am going to watch the Super Bowl . I am pulling for Denver to win . The big difference will be Seattle ‘ s offence against Denver ‘ s defence . Peyton Manning will find a way to move the ball . Moreno & Ball will help , some , maybe enough . The difference maker will be MarShawn Lynch & Co against Denver ‘ s run defence …

.. If Seattle runs the ball well , then Denver is in trouble . I do not think that Seattle will , unless they bring back the read option and use it a lot .

.. Denver 28 , Seattle 24 ..

… O.K. , Dummies , Now What ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 29th,2013

.. being from NorthEast Ohio , you would think that I would be a Cleveland Browns fan  …

.. if you would guess that , you would be right ! …

.. I have been a Browns fan [and , yes , an Indians fan , and a Cavaliers fan ] since I was a little kid . It did not seem like that was all that long a time ago . Except that I am 49 years old . It makes me feel older , not old .

.. Well , it seems like the Brownies [sarcasm included] have made another smooth move … they have fired their head coach , Rob Chudzinski . Why ?

.. You think that they would give the guy a fair shake ? Yes ? No . I believe that they did not do so . Well , it is time to move on .

.. they were 4 & 12 this year , which sucks , but 5 Pro Bowlers … 4 on offense , with 2 on the offensive line .. there is something to work with …

.. A new QB in the draft is a must [the #4 draft slot helps] , and there will plenty of them in the draft . Also ,  the Browns have 12 draft picks … 2 in each round , except rounds 2 and 5 [i think] … so do not be surprised if the Browns draft more than one QB in the draft . It would be unusual , but not unheard of .

.. Also , the Brownies [there is that sarcasm , again] have tons of salary cap space to ” carryover ” [yes , it sometimes pays to save , and not blow it all] , and added to the salary cap , will give them loads of $$$ to spend next year , if they want]..

.. forget about a QB in free agency , ditto most WRs and RBs … the good ones are either locked up already , or are franchised or transitioned by their current teams , or can be , if their deal is up …

.. ironically , you can pick up somebody good … if you do your homework .

.. in free agency , hit the O – Line . They have 2 Pro – Bowlers already . Even one more would help a ton . More quality would help , greatly . It would give a boost to the running offense , which , to be honest , is pathetic .

.. Another big stud or 2 WR would help alot . Giving Cameron and Gordon some friendlies would help everybody … and give defenses nightmares …

.. the Browns have an excellent defense .. but it can be better .

.. BOLO a stud pass rusher [LBs are preferable , but a DE would work] ..

.. what do you think ? …

… Regrettably , Steven A. , It is What Happens [to Black Conservatives] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 19th,2013

.. these days liberals , especially Black liberals , are the height of intolerant . Why ?

.. [link] to Steven A. Smith ‘ s commentary …

.. to most folks , black conservatives help contribute to the intellectual fabric , by helping contribute to and feed the debate . With black liberals ,however , it is most definitely not the case . They feel threatened by black conservatives . They feel that black conservatives are a grievous threat to their power and their influence .

.. So , what happens ? They are mocked and ostracized , sent to the never – land of the black community , not to be dealt with . They are that afraid of them . While that happens , the black conservative community continues to grow in size and influence …

.. Sooner or later , the black community will have to take note of these folks . They cannot ignore them . These conservatives are among the most vigorous intellectuals , creative artists , athletes , and thinkers , no matter what the skin color . They cannot and will not be ignored , Steven A. Smith …

… Meet the DePressed is Really Bad …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. I knew it had slid downhill , but not this far .

.. I caught the audio for it on Sunday from another room when I was watching my favourite N.F.L. team (yea , the Browns)

Russert's last book, Wisdom of Our Fathers

lose another game . I did not pay attention to it that much , but yes , I did hear enough of it .

.. Yeech !! David Gregory is a terrible host , and an even worse questioner . He does not push his guests at all , whether they be newsmakers or the media . Tim Russert has to be turning over and over in his grave , watching this from up on high with the Big Guy .
