New Home on the Market, Name the Owner?

A low per month mortgage payment of only $23,206 could buy you this lovely $4,500,000, 7 Bed, 8.5 Bath home
located near Sugar Loaf golf course in suburban Atlanta.

Amenities include the following:


Here is the google map location of the mansion.

Why is such a lovely home just built in 2004 on the market in such a short time? The owner is having some money problems.

The answer: Ron Mexico.

Who knew that herpes, weed in a water bottle, flipping off your own fans, a posse member stealing a watch in an airport, and the inability to hit open receivers on a consistent basis would be the best possible problems that he could have right now.

Tree's Trip of Thoughts

I decided on a weekly post about my friend Joe's pictures and words about his kick A$$ job as a vital crew member for ESPN College Game Day. He informed me of his elated disbelief on last Friday of making both the USA today and Mac Gs World in the same day.

To recap that makes: Gannett Corporation 1, Poor blogger with a drinking/sports habit 1, BRING IT FISHWRAP!

Here is his rant about MLB playoffs and Husker football. I would email him for his take on Norman last week but he is in Lexington, KY right now setting up for tomorrow. First trip ever to UK for Gameday. He did run into Tim Couch last night and he was accompanied by some serious eye candy. Awesome.

While half the country wonders when Colorado got a baseball team.....What a story the 2007 Colorado Rockies are. Just to close out the regular season on that streak wasn't enough, how about the Monday night game against the Padres to get into the playoffs? Knocking off Jake Peavy and then Trevor Hoffman? Going 7-0 the first two rounds sweeping the Phillies and now the Diamondbacks.

And Kaz Matsui. KAZ MATSIU!!! This guy came to the Mets and looked like he had never played baseball before. He couldn't hit or field any position. Now, he's played a pivotal role for the Rockies on their run to the Series. I don't even think the Rockies were selling out games a month ago. Now, the middle of October, the Broncos suck and the Rockies are going to the World Series.

Everyone in Colorado will now tell you they've always been a die hard Rockies fan and even remember the three games Todd Helton started in '94 for the Tennessee Volunteers or Matt Holliday calling the signals for Oklahoma St. Maybe the worst thing that could of happened to the Rockies was sweeping the NLCS.

Now they have 8 days off before the Series Starts! They can kill a team's momentum. Can you imagine Cleveland/Colorado in the Word Series? All the snowed out games? Maybe the series gets over before pitchers/catchers report.

Just like the Oakland Raiders, the Nebraska Cornhuskers and finally, it's fans and boosters have quit on Bill Callahan. Looking at the remaining schedule, the Huskers probably won't win another game this year. How's this gonna look for recruiting? Probably the only thing to save Nebraska football will be T.O. They need his name more than ever.

Osborne is Nebraska. He is the typical Nebraska personality, work ethic, and attitude. I know he retired because he had a great and long career and wanted to ride out in the sunset and be able to spend more time with his family.

He'll come back to help, but not full time. He cares about Nebraska and it's people too much. I'm sure he doesn't want to go back to working 18 hour days, seven days a week. He'll restore the order. It's a tough task, right now, there are many more football programs more dominant than Nebraska.

Thanks Steve Pederson and Bill Callahan for totally screwing up the best program in college football.

GET OUT!!!!!!

Speaking of Nebraska, I heard that at Boondocker's they give free shots out for Hukser Touchdowns. Now they started giving them out for field goals!

Dude! Kenny.....Maaaaaaan. Just Chill Out Bro.

Check out the vocal skirmish between Josh Beckett and Kenny Lofton. Some funny audio on the 2nd video. The audio that I wanted to hear was what Beckett had to say in the dugout to his boys about his ex-chick, Danielle Peck, singing the national anthem. I have never heard of this country singer but Spankalicious! Videos are from Awful Announcing.

Today's Question

Real or Fake?

I lied and somehow got sucked back in to watching the Real World Sydney again last night. I am done with the show for the second time. Memo to MTV: girls sobbing on the phone to their boyfriends back home is NOT entertaining. An episode with 2 girls doing it? Awful.

Anyway, the Isaac dude just cracks me up. I can not find video of his great apology from earlier this season but it is classic. I did find the recap.

It started innocently enough with the roommates enjoying cocktails and playing Twister. During the game, Shauvon appeared to have a few too many and went to sit on Isaac's lap.

In rapid succession, she fell off Isaac's lap -- a foot and a half to a carpeted floor, not even spilling the bottle of water she was holding -- and started screaming and insisting she was bleeding. (If so, it was a teeny-tiny scrape. No gore was shown, and you know if there had been gore they would have shown it.)

The girls attempted to tape Shauvon up with a tissue-sized bandage, but she's too busy shrieking that Isaac dropped her on purpose for them to finish the job. She confronted Isaac, throwing a plate of chips and demanding an apology.

To which Isaac classically responded: "I apologize that gravity works in your disfavor."

And Shauvon lost her damn mind. She dumped her bottle of water on him and ran off. He threw his beer and baseball cap at her and called her a whole panoply of bad names. KellyAnne convinced Isaac to apologize, saying that even though Shauvon was drunk, he should have expressed some sort of concern that she was hurt.

Isaac went to Shauvon to apologize and uttered the night's classic speech No. 2: "Shauvon, I apologize for calling you a slut. I shouldn't have done that ... and I didn't mean you were a slut like that. When I get up and start yelling at a girl, that's one of the first words that comes out."

He went on from there, discussing other terms he uses when he's ticked off at a lady, but "slut" is pretty much the only one that can be printed on a family website. Even MTV bleeped out some of the alternatives. Use your imagination. Needless to say, Shauvon continued to sob on the couch.

He is the man!

Here is Isaac's note left on some porn for his guy roommate Dunbar so he would go rub one out and not be so uptight. Hilarious.

Here is a video of Isaac talking to Trisha after she was getting emotional on the street listening to these guys play some music that reminded her of home. He needs his own show.

All of these girls on the show are completely NUTS! I will not break them down in more detail because in 3 months they will be after thoughts and the only thing they will have is to make paid appearances at night clubs or get a lucky selection on one of MTV's challenge shows.

I should not post this video because Viacom loves to pull their stuff off of Youtube but this is a good short visual summary of how crazy these chicks really are.

"So Mac G, if this Real World sucks so bad and you have mostly negative things to say about it, why do you keep watching?"

Great Question. Here are some reasons why down below and would you please put the show in DC? Mac G would befriend them and dominate that house.

Oh, the consensus was fake and fabulous.

Thanks to my man, TV Tan Line, for the screen shots.

What Happened to the Huskers?

This picture says it all as to what has happened in 2007 to the Cornhuskers team and unfortunately, symbolizes the current dismal state of the Nebraska football program. Two of their starting senior linebackers(Ruud&McKeon) look better at "bump, set, spike" than they do at "fill, shed, wrap up."

I normally would not pile on my home state college football squad but after laying down(38-0!) in the first half against an average Okie State team, with the 97 national title team being honored and looking on, this team deserves this picture to be posted. Maybe this humiliation will get them to "man up" and play with some fire/passion on Saturday.

And if this post happens to make the eyes of Father Flannagan wannabee Cowpoke head coach Mike Gundy, I am not 40, I do not have kids, and being called a man would be genuine flattery.

Only to save face for Husker fans everywhere, here are some pictures of Husker QB Sam Keller with some smoking hot poon. If you think this team is bad now, without Keller, they would be 1-11 or 2-10. Keller must have lit up the Tempe poon night life like the 07 Husker opponents do the scoreboard.

At least Slick Stevie Pederson is finally GONE!

Kiss the Mountain Air We Breathe!

My favorite band is Widespread Panic and a have few shows(you do not want to know the number!) under my belt. Without boring everyone with the details of my past travels, I just want to show you these 2 videos. The first is a guy driving in the hills of Cali, listening to Panic's song, "Surprise Valley." The next video is girl on violin, absolutely nailing the Surprise Valley guitar rift. AWESOME! I am ready for New Year's already.

This video is killa, brah. The introduction just gave me serious MUSIC flashbacks.

Panic still has some dates on their fall tour left and they will be hitting up Atlanta's Phillips Arena for their annual New Year's Eve shows. Check it out. Here are the best fan sites out there.

I think this is my first post about Panic on this blog. Damn, I must have really sold out to the Blogger Man.

Oh, kiss the mountain air we breathe
Good-bye it's time to fly.
Sparrow climb, the air is thinner,
Open wings cast this valley in the shade.

Fires dance the shadows

Winds whisper the trees
Mamas talk in the waters
Spirit moves in all things.

Spirit that moves through all things ...

Cheney's Law

I watched one of the best documentaries that I have seen in awhile last night in the PBS Frontline special, "Cheney's Law." I did not really learn anything new but it did put whole the puzzle of this Administration's covert actions together quite nicely.

CIA secret interrogation facilities, spying on Americans without a court order, ignoring the Geneva Convention, warrantless wiretaps, holding detainees at Guantanamo Bay forever, the ridding of Habeas Corpus, narrowing the definition of torture, politicization of US attorneys and the gutting of the 4th amendment of unreasonable search and seizure. This video touches on the formations of all of these key topics.

My favorite is explaining signing statements by the president, where Congress passes a law and when the president signs it into law, he puts exceptions in there which basically means that he does not have to follow the law he just signed. I think the normal citizen still believes we live in a republic of checks and balances. The exorbitant use of these signing statements by Bush proves that we do not.

Regardless, if you hate Hilary or Rudy, love Ron Paul or Obama, you must watch this documentary. It is fascinating examination of how Cheney, with the help from his legal hit man/aide David Addington, have empowered the executive branch to unprecedented levels.

I Heart Lara Logan

CBS journalist and super hottie, Lara Logan went on the Tonight Show and told Jay Leno about her experience with reporting in Iraq/Afghanistan. I have loved Lara forever(I am a sucker for accents!) and she goes right to the point about the lack of humanizing coverage of the Iraq occupation.

Go to 2:42 left in the video below to see how she thinks things are going very badly in Iraq or you can find a condensed clip of her comments here.

It turns out hottie Lara is married to former European professional basketball player, Steve Simon. I was going to take some pot shots at him but it turns out he was Power Forward and looks pretty ripped.

Plus, Simon has some Iowa ties of being born in my boy Scooter's hometown of Spirit Lake. Scooter has a graduate degree from Okoboji University in beverage making and the best 3 months of my life were spent one summer up at the Lake Resort of Okoboji.

Tom Osborne will be named the school's interim athletic director at a 6:15pm est, Tuesday press conference.

Osborne met with Perlman this morning to discuss the interim post and Osborne agreed to serve, on an open-ended arrangement, until Perlman finds a permanent athletics director.

Osborne said he looks forward to the challenge.

"I've spent the majority of my life working with the Athletic Department at the university and I want to do what I can at this point to continue in the pursuit of excellence that has been previously established," he said.

Osborne will take over the job right away. AWESOME!

I will continue take credit for this historic expedient upheaval by starting the Fire Steve Pederson Blog, hours after the Missouri debacle.

Husker Nation, you are welcome. I think it is the first time as a sports fans that what I proposed doing, actually happened. I wanted the AD fired and replaced by Dr. Tom. A fresh cleansing of the Callahan staff would be my winning trifecta ticket!

Now if I could only finally end the Iraq occupation, have people stop believing the distortions spewed daily at them by Fox News and stop the government from spying on us without warrants. Oh well.

Here is link for KETV's live coverage of the Osborne press conference at 6:15est.

Mother Teresa, F HER!

Al Gore won the Nobel peace prize last week for his work raising environmental awareness around the world. Check out the above 2 videos for the coverage. Of course this means that the right/Fox News goes absolutely ape shit over his deserved prize(Hey Neil Cavuto, you are not skinny yourself, fat A$$) and columnist Paul Krugman correctly labels their outrage: Gore Derangement Syndrome.

Either love him or hate him, Gore's goal of cleaner air and water are not bad ambitions. Whether you want to pick apart his movie's conclusions, there is no denying that man is warming the planet. I put my faith for global warming stats in the overwhelming majority of scientists that tell me global warming exists and not in the small minority who tell me it does not.

Not surprisingly, the scientists in denial are on the pay roll of the big polluters. Shocker? Plus, when it comes to a cleaner climate and earth for future generations, I would rather error on the side of caution for people's health, instead of being on the other side, arguing to protect the profit margins of global corporations.

Furthermore, it is nice to see a former public official actually have conviction on something other than blowing things up or killing people. Krugman illustrates the syndrome with excerpts from his column:

The worst thing about Mr. Gore, from the conservative point of view, is that he keeps being right. In 1992, George H. W. Bush mocked him as the “ozone man,” but three years later the scientists who discovered the threat to the ozone layer won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. In 2002 he warned that if we invaded Iraq, “the resulting chaos could easily pose a far greater danger to the United States than we presently face from Saddam.” And so it has proved.

But Gore hatred is more than personal. When National Review decided to name its anti-environmental blog Planet Gore, it was trying to discredit the message as well as the messenger. For the truth Mr. Gore has been telling about how human activities are changing the climate isn’t just inconvenient. For conservatives, it’s deeply threatening.

The sulfuric acid in America’s lakes mainly comes from coal burned in U.S. power plants, but the carbon dioxide in America’s air comes from coal and oil burned around the planet — and a ton of coal burned in China has the same effect on the future climate as a ton of coal burned here. So dealing with climate change not only requires new taxes or their equivalent; it also requires international negotiations in which the United States will have to give as well as get.

Everything I’ve just said should be uncontroversial — but imagine the reception a Republican candidate for president would receive if he acknowledged these truths at the next debate. Today, being a good Republican means believing that taxes should always be cut, never raised. It also means believing that we should bomb and bully foreigners, not negotiate with them.

Which brings us to the biggest reason the right hates Mr. Gore: in his case the smear campaign has failed. He’s taken everything they could throw at him, and emerged more respected, and more credible, than ever. And it drives them crazy.Climate change is, however, harder to deal with than acid rain, because the causes are global.

Husker AD Steve Pedseron has been FIRED!

Various Nebraska media outlets are reporting that embattled Nebraska Cornhusker AD, Steve Pederson has been fired. A press conference is scheduled in a few hours to announce the decision. Pederson met with University of Nebraska at Lincoln Chancellor, Harvey Perlman earlier today.

Speculation is swirling that legendary coach Dr. Tom Osborne will be replacing Pederson as new athletic director and Osborne's son has stated that he will accept the position if asked.
No word yet on the status of the Husker coaching staff.

I would like to take credit and pat myself on the back for starting this blog(Fire Steve Pederson)less than 10 days ago and having the mission of the blog come to fruition in such a short time period. This has to be a blogosphere record for the sites and thank You Fire Ron for starting it all.

Husker Nation is rejoicing and BRING IN TO!!!


"I guess that means he was fired!" Great quote by UNL Chancellor Perlman answering the question of whether or not Pederson accepted his resignation request. Pederson gets a 2.2 million buy out of his existing contract. Perlman will not make any staff changes and leave that up to new AD. He will seek out Osborne's advice but he is not named AD. (At least not yet.) Perlman just mentioned that he does not read blogs but he gets stuff sent to him. More proof of the impact of Awesome.

Perlman is getting testy when constantly asked about Osborne and he just quoted head coach Bill Callahan about his upcoming decision of finding a new AD. He just muttered something about going back to being a law school professor if he needs to. Perlman summed up the events of today by referencing how Nebraska Statehood was more important? HUH?

The press conference ended and people started clapping, another bizarre occurrence.

I will never try attempt to live blog a press conference like this again. I am not even sure this Perlman guy should be running the University of Nebraska. At least he admitted his mistake of hiring Pederson and is cutting his losses to move on, which is more than can said about the Bush administration's failed Iraq policy.

Can I start with the speculation? Bill Parcells. Just Kidding. Get a young AD with no Nebraska ties and have him hire a Defensive minded head coach. Then raid the staff of Florida or West Virginia for an offensive coordinator who knows the spread offense.

Husker fans would love the ability to see QB running again but still have the ability to pick up 3rd and longs through the air. The spread is the progressive way to go offensively in college football.

Or throw a boatload of money at Cal's head coach Jeff Tefford as he is struggling to get state of the art facilities built because some crazy hippies will not get down from some trees on Berkley's campus. I am not even making this up.

Hiring TO as an interim AD would ease the transition to a new staff and not completely devastate recruiting. The last thing Nebraska needs is a lame duck coaching staff until late January and getting TO would not completely tear everything down.

Thank YOU Perlman for getting some BALLS and ridding the state of its number one egotistical fiend. Now, 2007 Husker squad can you go play some inspired, "us against the world, F the media, the fans" football on Saturday?

Not the Chicago ones, but the South Florida Bulls! The BCS rankings came out yesterday with Ohio St, South Florida, and Boston College claiming the top 3 spots. How many preseason mags, college football fans or talking heads predicted those 3 teams? Absolutely no one!

In honor of the South Florida Bulls being in the drivers seat for a BCS national title game, I have found some cool tailgating videos from USF's demolition of UCF on Saturday.

Poon Salsa Dancing makes me crave tequila and salt.

Start this video at 39 seconds remaining and you will love Mac G's World forever. You might start liking the Bulls because I know that I am super smitten for some USF Bull poon right now.

Happy Munday!
