We want you, we want you, we want you as a new recruit

It's Labor Day. If you have the day off, thank a union member.

I was raised by a mostly single father who was fortunate enough to have the security of a Union job. I capitalized that on purpose. For all of the crap that came with being in a Union, and there was a lot, the good far outweighed the bad. Chiefly, that Union job made it possible for me to grow up with some sense of security.

You're welcome, ladies.

Okay, I'm writing this as I am watching the Navy lose (I hope) to THE Ohio State University.

Why all the reverence for an Ohio school, Rudy?

Well, person, TGB happens to be a rabid Buckeyes fan and, as someone who enjoys marital bliss, I have adopted them as the-team-I-like-who-isn't-USC. Also, as someone who got lucky enough to find a smoking hot woman who also knows and loves football... shit, I would cheer for UCLA (if USC wasn't on) if she asked.

Of course, I will leave her ass if she ever cheers for the Raiders.
