Favre Retires ... Again

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 18, 2011

Brett Favre has filed his retirement papers with the NFL...again. He did this the last time he retired as well and we all know how that ended up. I am in the camp of people who will not believe Favre is retired until the first regular season game of 2011 is played. Filing of papers means nothing....in the Favre world of being anyway. Besides, if he retires half of the sports media will need to get new jobs as he has been their only job for years now.

Favre also stated that he thinks the Packers will go to the Super Bowl and win it. He stated he thinks that Green Bay is by far the... (more)

A Date Whether You Want One Or Not

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 17, 2011

Gotham Dating Partners, an online dating site with outlets such as Dons and Divas and Marry Me First, intends to use public information on sites such as Facebook to create new dating profiles for non-registered users.

Who To Cheer For

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 17, 2011

Well, all of my teams are now out of the playoffs. After having absolutely outstanding seasons, two of the best in the NFL, the Falcons and Patriots are both eliminated on their first game of the playoffs. It was beyond disappointing to say the least. Now, I am left with 4 teams in the championship round and none of them are teams I want to cheer for.

The Packers are the team that put my Falcons out of the playoffs. I've never been a Packers fan as they are direct competition for my team. I admire Aaron Rogers and think he's one of the best QBs in the game. But I just can't see... (more)

Sticks And Stones

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 17, 2011

In a comment on my article about blaming someone else other than yourself when something goes wrong in a relationship, words were pointed out to be one of the more hurtful things that can occur in a relationship. No, they don't leave marks on the body, but they leave marks on the soul and the heart, on the spirit and the mind.

In relationships, especially in times of argument or disagreement, words tend to become heated and keeping control of one's tongue can become a monumental task. For some people, they deliberately use words to hurt others. For some, it is just something that... (more)

What Went Wrong

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 17, 2011

Just about everything - for the Falcons that is. They did every possible thing wrong that a team can do. While the Packers played very well, they had help from the Falcons to win the game, and lots of it. After a winning season, a 1st place post season seed, the Falcons come out of the playoffs beaten down by the Packers to the tune of 48 to 21.

The Falcons had the week bye and some people will put the loss on the fact that they were "rusty." That's just not the case. Any team that gets to the playoffs is not going to be rusty if they have the first week bye. They aren't sitting... (more)

Love On The Brain

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 15, 2011

In a new study published by the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience that involved 17 study participants who were part of couples married on average 21 years who claimed to be just as in love, just as passionate about their partner as when they first fell in love, might not just be saying it. Their brain scans show that it is true and that this kind of love can last and not become companionate love over time.

The study had the participants gaze at photos of their spouses, whom they had been married to for 10 years or more, and while doing so an MRI of their brain was... (more)

Follow The Yellow Brick Road

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 15, 2011

Cam Newton you've just won the National Championship what are you going to do now? I'm going into the NFL draft. Well of course he is, there's little reason for him to wait and some good ones for him to go now. A lot of NFL teams need a QB, but how high will he be drafted and how long will it take for him to be an NFL ready QB?

Newton is smart to go into the draft now. Before all the information about his "pay for play" story comes out, and come out it will. It may take months, it may take years, but it will come out. Go in now while his performance on the field this season is fresh... (more)

The Blame Game

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 13, 2011

In relationships, we often times find it easier to assess blame than to get to the truth of the matter, any matter. It's so much easier to say, this is your fault or this caused this to happen, rather than to examine ourselves to find out why and if the blame should reside in us and not going outward.

Blame is easy because it moves responsibility for any situation to someone or something else. Therefore, we don't have to feel guilt. We don't have to take responsibility. The fault lies elsewhere. We are free from having to look inward. Blame is quick. It resolves the situation,... (more)

Talk Is Cheap

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 13, 2011

The Jets continue to talk, talk, talk in the lead up to the game versus the Patriots this weekend. Their coach talks. Their players talk. But they did this the last time the two teams met and the outcome on the field did not benefit the Jets. I don't think it's going to help them this time either.

The Jets have made a career of talking. They started the season off talking on HBO. They gained a reputation as a team that talks trash and profanities. They kept building this reputation throughout the season. Their meeting with the Patriots in December was proceeded by much talk.... (more)
