Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Hey everyone. Later today or tomorrow I'm going to post something about the Philadelphia Eagles, 2003 Super Bowl Champions to be. Now, I know some of you couldn't care less and that's cool. I'll provide ample warning whenever these sports-heavy posts come up and you can just skip 'em.

HOWEVER, for those of you from home who enjoy reading about the Birds and enjoy the postings, please tell all your Philly friends to check it out and let me know you have an interest. I'm thinking about starting an Eagles 2003 blog for all my die-hard Philly brethren but I don't want to do it if no one is going to read it.

Speaking of die-hard Iggles fans, my friend in L.A., Baron von Stuttgart, tells me he has stumbled upon an all-Eagles/Philly sports bar in Santa Monica called The Shack that is apparently packed on Sundays. They've got multiple teevees, but if anyone comes in on a Sunday and asks them to tune one of the sets to another game, they are told in true Philly fashion to go fuck themselves.
