September is Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month. Show your support by wearing burgundy and I am not too clear on the AVM Awareness month but we are going to talk about it any way. You can also show your support by wearing a green butterfly.
I would first like to express my gratitude to those who came so far away to attend our 3rd Annual Brain Aneurysm/AVM Walk for Life Event in Sacramento, California. We appreciate all of the volunteers and the family and friends who came out to join us. OH and the DJ always keeps us moving and grooving. And I would also like to thank Barry for always sharing and showing up with me every week. Thanks Barry!
Please join us for sharing awareness!
Soooo remember when we told you this was the last cypher?? Yeah Sike Naw....

The fixtures are coming hot and heavy right now for Orlando City as we sweat through the dog days of late June and dread the even more extreme days to come in July and August. As such, there is so much to talk about. In this week's episode, we recap the 4-4 draw in Charleston in which the Lions advanced on penalties, as well as the 2-0 loss at Montreal on Saturday. We surprisingly agreed on our Man of the Match for both games.
We also look ahead at next week's U.S. Open Cup match against Columbus Crew SC and bring in special guest John Rosch, managing editor of Burgundy Wave to preview tomorrow night's big MLS match against the Colorado Rapids. The game will mark the season's halfway point for Orlando City and another three points to take into the weekend off would be most welcome.
And, as usual, we give you our soon-to-be-ridiculed predictions on Wednesday's score against Colorado!
Here's the breakdown:
0:23- Michael and Austin D discuss the exhausting 4-4 draw and 8-7 PK shootout at Charleston,look ahead to the Crew (again) next Tuesday, and recap a loss at Montreal, in which our Lions just didn't have it.
28:13- John Rosch hops on to give us the lowdown on what we can expect out of the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night at the Citrus Bowl.
43:41- We wrap things up with our predictions and invite you to throw them back in our faces after they turn out to be hilariously wrong.
That'll do it for this week. We'll be back to do it all again!

Well, this show was supposed to be the glorious return of the Colorado Rapids Thugcast, previewing the 2015 season for the Burgundy Boys. Apparently that might not be happening, though. So... hey, let's talk about the MLS CBA battle between the players and the owners for a while as well! I'm sure Bulldog Ben and myself will find plenty to talk about, unless we've lost our touch or something. (Something tells me we probably haven't. You and I both know that the two of us can talk for hours.)
Before we start condemning Brian Williams, let’s look at ourselves.
Whether NBC News fires or demotes Williams, I don’t care. It is their business. Frankly, ratings will decide his fate. If people stop watching NBC News and advertisers stop advertising, then Williams will probably be a talk show host and not a news anchor anymore.
But the Brian Williams story goes deeper into our media, our politics, and our culture. And it is – well – kind of embarrassing.
It’s called Victimhood.
And we all do it.
Brian Williams portrayed himself as a victim. He told us that he was in a chopper that was under fire in a war zone. Why? It made him look good. He wasn’t just a talking head sitting behind the desk. He was a reporter in the field. Trust me, every news anchor wants to prove that. Every news anchor doesn’t want to look like Ted Baxter or Ron Burgundy.
Haven’t we all done that at some point? I am sure I have. But I just don’t remember at the moment
We want to be thought of as someone who is heroic or who has done good – for people.
Is Brian Williams victimhood horrible? Maybe not. He was doing his job in some respects. He was making himself look good for ratings. I am not saying that is right. He should be more in-tune to the truth. But he’s making 10-million a year to keep that image.
The worst faux victims are people like al Qaeda and ISIS and other extremists. Osama bin Laden felt victimized – and he used it. ISIS feels the world is a horrible place because there is no caliphate. Really? No, they want the power -- they can’t have -- because the mullahs in Iran and the royal family in Saudi Arabia have it.
