The nicest church I have ever been to - St. Stanislauis, Modesto, Calif.

These blog photos don't do the church justice, click on the pix to get a nice blow-up view of each photo.

Raiders bounce back, smash Broncos 59-14

In the words of the late, great Bill King: HOLY TOLEDO!

Wow. I know the Raiders have a penchant for sucking really bad, then putting together one awesome, complete game in all phases of the game ... then go promptly back to sucking for the rest of the season. This was that game. I hope the sucking doesn't commence right away, as it would be nice to win 2 or 3 in a row for the first time in forever.

Game ball to RUN DMC and his 4 touchdowns. He is officially not a bust.

The Raiders just plain suck

I am so embarrassed that my Raiders lost to the hapless 49ers. My passion for football is fading by the day ... it just hurts too much to invest so many emotions into a dead end - a brick wall that doesn't love you back. Too much pain for no reciprocation ... for goodness sakes, share in the pain with me.

I feel like crying, like the kid in this video, when his Chargers lost to the Raiders. Who do the Raiders think they are, collecting a jar of silver and black hearts and breaking them all, leaving scars so deep they may never heal?

Happy Birthday ... to me

It's been a fun week of celebrating my son's birthday, which rolls right into mine a week later. Lots of presents, lots of cake. Next stop: Disneyland!

Today got off to a great start with breakfast out with my parents and family. The french toast was awesome, and the syrup got all up in my sausage and scrambled eggs. Yummmmmmmm.

Best of all, the Raiders beat the hated Chargers for the first time in 6 or 7 years. That took the sting off Michigan's loss against the MSU Spartans, but at least Cal won. Stanford won. Hell, even the Lions won today. Let's see what the Niners do against the Eagles - I kind of hope they win and come into next week way over-confident against my Raiders.

All I want for my birthday now is more Captain America movie news and spoilers.

Take care, true believers - may your significant days be full of syrupy sweetness and delicious memories.

Happy Birthday, Bubber

You are the light of my life and you make me so happy. You bring joy to every day, so I hope you enjoy your special day.

The origin of Captain America ... nice!

More Cap movie/game concept art!

It gets better, true believers!

SEGA to release Captain America Videogame


SEGA announced today it is developing video game Captain America: Super Soldier for release in 2011:

SEGA® of America, Inc and SEGA®, Europe Ltd. today announced they will bring Marvel Entertainment’s famed Super Hero franchise Captain America™ to video game systems in an original WWII adventure, Captain America: Super Soldier. The title is scheduled for release in 2011 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP®(PlayStation® Portable) system, Wii™ and Nintendo DS™.

“Videogame players the world over can now become Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Captain America,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “Captain America: Super Soldier puts players in the boots of the ultimate Super-Soldier, wielding Captain America’s legendary shield. Working closely with Marvel ensures we’re delivering the calibre product that gamers and comic fans deserve and it’s a partnership we’re proud of here at SEGA.”

Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in an epic third- person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.

Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world’s first Super-Soldier at their fingertips—and they’ll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that’s both an acrobatic playground for the Captain’s physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.
