HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY EVERYONE!

“We tend to think of St. Patrick’s Day as one big Irish party. However, St. Patrick’s Day means something special to Irish people around the world. There is much that pulls the world apart today, but St. Patrick’s Day is a time to start all over again and celebrate the positive things we all share in life!” – Dr. Sam Speron

Have a safe and wonderful St. Patrick’s Day Frisk A Liberal fans!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Orlando, Florida on New Years day?

Answer: My Michigan State Spartans will take on Alabama Crimson Tide!

Yahoo Sports reports:

When Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio suffered a mild heart attack in September, Nick Saban called his former assistant to wish him a speedy recovery.

The close friends will face each other for the first time when the No. 7 Spartans take on 15th-ranked Alabama in the Capital One Bowl at Orlando, Fla., on New Year’s Day.

Dantonio served as Saban’s assistant at Michigan State from 1995-99 until Saban left for LSU, and they have remained close through the years. Dantonio said his time as an assistant gave him the chance to coach the Spartans, and he credits Saban for making him part of the Michigan State program.

[…]

A share of its first conference championship in 20 years and a school record for wins didn’t help Michigan State (11-1) earn the program’s first BCS invitation, finishing behind fellow Big Ten champions Ohio State and Wisconsin.

The Spartans feel a matchup with the preseason No. 1 and 2009 national champion Crimson Tide will be a good measuring stick in determining if they were worthy of competing at that level.

This is an epic matchup for Michigan State! Although the Spartans should be playing in the Rose Bowl this year, this game will truly be a great game.

I will post updates on here and on my Twitter account.

GO GREEN!

*UPDATE* – January 1, 2011 – 1:18 PM.

Alabama scored the first points of the game. Ingram rushed to the right for 1 yard touchdown… Lame.

  • Alabama: 7 – Michigan State: 0 with 8:20 remaining in the first quarter.

*UPDATE* – January 1, 2011 – 1:45 PM.

After Kirk Cousins threw an interception near the red zone, Alabama marched down the field and Richardson rushed to the right for 8 yard touchdown.

  • Alabama: 14 – Michigan State: 0 with 14:33 remaining in the second quarter.

*UPDATE* – January 1, 2011 – 2:12 PM.

Michigan State is shooting themselves in the foot. Ingram rushed to the left for 6 yard touchdown.

  • Alabama: 21 – Michigan State: 0 with 6:46 remaining in the second quarter.

*UPDATE* – January 1, 2011 – 2:24 PM.

At this point, Michigan State will need an enormous miracle if they want to win this football game. Julio Jones rushed to the right for 35 yard touchdown.

  • Alabama: 28 – Michigan State: 0 with 3:56 remaining in the second quarter.

*UPDATE* – January 1, 2011 – 3:04 PM.

Please stop scoring Alabama, because I am sick and tired of updating this blog post with Alabama scoring updates. McElroy passed to Maze down the middle for 36 yard touchdown. Ugh… This is just embarrassing.

  • Alabama: 35 – Michigan State: 0 with 12 minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter.

*UPDATE* – January 1, 2011 – 3:54 PM.

Yeah… This game is over. I am no longer going to update this…

  • Alabama: 42 – Michigan State: 0 with 11 minutes remaining in the game.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked all of the political highlights from 2010?

Answer: Quite a lot happened!

Haha! Props to Jib-Jab for putting together this video.

Although I think 2009’s video was better, this year’s was still pretty good.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful New Years Eve!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE

Be safe and responsible… Even if a TSA agent is trying to “touch your junk” at the airport.

It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor. – George Washington.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY FRISK A LIBERAL FANS!

July 4, 1776:

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain and its king. The declaration came 442 days after the first volleys of the American Revolution were fired at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts and marked an ideological expansion of the conflict that would eventually encourage France’s intervention on behalf of the Patriots.

[…]

The Declaration of Independence was largely the work of Virginian Thomas Jefferson. In justifying American independence, Jefferson drew generously from the political philosophy of John Locke, an advocate of natural rights, and from the work of other English theorists. The first section features the famous lines, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The second part presents a long list of grievances that provided the rationale for rebellion.

On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted to approve a Virginia motion calling for separation from Britain. The dramatic words of this resolution were added to the closing of the Declaration of Independence. Two days later, on July 4, the declaration was formally adopted by 12 colonies after minor revision. New York approved it on July 19. On August 2, the declaration was signed.

I am definitely wearing my “Don’t Tread On Me” shirt today… Lookout America! Also, I believe today is deserving of more than one quote:

Where liberty dwells, there is my country.Benjamin Franklin

My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!Thomas Jefferson

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.Abraham Lincoln

It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. … I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.John Adams

There, I guess King George will be able to read that.John Hancock, after signing the Declaration of Independence

Good God… Our founding fathers were awesome.

Hey there Frisk A Liberal fans!

I am currently headed down to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina where I will be blogging from for the next week. Don’t worry though… I will be hitting up the beaches, enjoying the July 4th fireworks, dining out constantly, golfing, making my excellent margaritas, strolling through Harbor Town, and whatever chaos I’m able to get myself into. 😆

A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in. – Robert Orben
