Even though:

there is a God
…Notre Dame is sucking hind tit this year, here is proof that there is a God.

Ode of a Traveling Man

(a candid shot of an HOV lane I was in recently)

I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place.
Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they
have always a nostalgia for a home they know not.

They are strangers in their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have
known from childhood or the populous streets in which they
have played, remain but a place of passage.

They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof
among the only scenes they have ever known. Perhaps it is
this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the
search for something permanent, to which they may attach

Perhaps some deeprooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands
which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history.

Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs.

Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never
seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were
familiar to him from his birth.

Here at last he finds rest.

Moon and Sixpence, by Somerset Maugham

Yes, I still live and lots to share...

More Manly Rugby:

The Haka - New Zealand Vs Tonga. These fuckers scare the shit out of me and I am (as a rule) a fearless man.

World Cup or Homoerotic Male Combat:

gay rugby

Start of the Rugby World Cup
Friday 7th September
France v Argentina 11am and 6pm
Saturday 8th September
ENGLAND v USA 3pm and 6pm
Sunday 9th September
New Zealand v Italy 11am
Wales v Canada 3pm
Scotland v Portugal 5pm

(all times mountain)

You decide! Granted like all deities I am asexual, meaning I would be willing to have sex with letters of the alphabet. However, I should note the Phoenix has its own gay rugby team and those Nancy-Boys are some bad asses.

...and ND under Penn by two touchdowns at the half. Joe Pa smells an easy win.

I remain, an ambiguous ideal in the hearts and minds of easily lead:
