The NFL Is In The Air

August 8, 2005

ColtSketchFinish

I can always tell when a new NFL football season is around the corner because football players start magically showing up in my sketchbooks.

The two teams I root for seem to be mirror images of each other.

The Indianapolis Colts and the Kansas City Chiefs both have great offenses and not so great defenses. The Chiefs addressed their problem this off season by acquiring new defensive players. Dungy and the Colts have been addressing their defensive woes for the past several seasons by drafting young talent. One is a short term fix, the other a long term fix. It will be interesting to see what this season brings for both teams.

One of the best things about living this far north is right around the corner… snow on the ground, a big fire in the fire place, and a NFL football game on TV.

The Comments

Don Jones

With the fire, snow and football game you’ve got the trappings of one awesome nap. I might suggest a warm mug of cocoa. (not to be confused with hot chocolate which sounds cheap and fattening.)

Banshee

The Colts will be able to find some of that snow up in New England… We’ll leave a light on for ya’. FOWA: week of 4-10-05 “Sometimes I forget what I am doing. When I come back to consciousness, I find the Colts still can’t beat the Patriots. 😉 Seriously: Here’s looking forward to some good games between the two [notice I say “games” because I get the feeling we will play more than once this year.]

Dennis Jones

New England lost some key players and coaches this off season… of course, they lost almost their entire secondary last season and the Colts still couldnt beat them… so… should make for some interesting football when the two teams meet again this year…

Dennis Jones

my favorite team is the bengals

Dennis Jones

…that last comment came from my youngest son Pete…

…it reminds me of way back when my boys were little… before the NFL season got started that year we made a pilgrimage to Canton, Ohio and the Pro Football Hall of Fame… after touring the place we were all getting stuff in the souvenir shop and Pete proclaimed he was not a Chiefs fan like us… he was a Bengals fan… (the Bengals were, of course, a terrible team), so we all had a good laugh and let him buy a Bengals hat…

…that very season the Bengals got good and ended up in the Super Bowl playing the 49ers…

..so if Pete is bringing the Bengals up outa the blue… ya might want to keep your eyes on them this season…

Don Jones

That rattles the old memory banks- there seems like in the Shepherd of the Hills book and outdoor drama in Branson… there was a character named Pete who ran around loose in the woods and spoke of himself in third person- Pete knows. Obviously Pete knows the NFL with these premonishunz…

marcelo from Brazil!!!

Hey Mr jonnes!!!!! its been a while since the last time i check your website! but hey ,this fooball player is really funny…you know what ? i would like to see how you would draw some of our “footbal” players..hehehe…what you guys call football we call it ” futebol”( soccer)…but soccer is not that popular in the US anyway .But the spirit is just the same: sunday afternoon , beer and barbecue at the backyard , and soccer game on TV!!!!

Dennis Jones

…but probably no snow on the ground during
game time in Brazil, right Marcelo?

Banshee

Maybe a soccer player juggling a Gourd on his foot… I’m looking forward to the Chiefs – Patriots game too. I like the Chiefs [nowhere near as much as I like the Patriots,] and really enjoyed being at their Monday Night match-up last year. Chiefs fans are very nice and now how to “do” football. One of these days I hope to get to a game at The Razor. FOWA: week of 4-10-05

Dennis Jones

…yes, we are very nice fans… last Christmas we went to the Chiefs/Raiders game and very politely watched a drunken Raiders fan fall into the row in front of him… it was almost as entertaining as the football game…

Championship Mojo

August 16, 2005

ChampMOJO

What you have heard is true… NFL Championships follow me wherever I go. It doesn’t seem to matter how bad the team is when I arrive in the state, it becomes good when I get there… and then it wins the Super Bowl.

I grew up in the Missouri Ozarks and during that time the Kansas City Chiefs went to two Super Bowls, thanks, (of course), to the fact that I grew up in the state during that time. As you can see, the Dennis Jones Championship Mojo was kicking in even at this early age. I left the state and the Chiefs have never returned to the big game. Sorry Chiefs.

I moved to the Dallas/Ft Worth area the year the Cowboys fired Tom Landry. During my first season in Texas, that team won only one game and lost fifteen. Three Super Bowl wins later I decided it was time for me to move on. I had done about all I could do for the Cowboys. The team fell apart when I left the state. Sorry Dallas.

When we moved to Indiana, the Colts were another one win, fifteen loss team. Anyone that pays attention to football knows how much I have improved the team since moving into the state. Is this the year the Colts move past New England to claim the Vince Lombardi Trophy?

I believe my track record speaks for itself.

The Comments

Don Jones

I was all pumped for some Monday Night Preseason football last night… but to no avail. I ended up watching The Titans movie deal. I took a straw vote and you’re out of the Hall of Fame. Did you notice our draft is set for a week after the season starts?

Dennis Jones

hmmm… no I didn’t… thats different… but I still like the way there is a playoff at the end…

Doug Jones

I need some help… can one of you send me a cheat sheet? I need to climb outta the cellar this year…

Dennis Jones

Hey… I already told you Rex Grossman would be a great pick up for your team THIS season… he’s supposed to be the next Brett Favre…

Don Jones

I believe you can just let the AUTO DRAFTER kick in for you Douger and you’ll get the best players available according to their cheat sheets… I’m going with it. No use wasting any brain power on this… Dennis always wins anyhow. NFL Football is his Jones.

Dennis Jones

I’m using the Auto-Drafter… all I ever do is take the next highest guy on the list anyway… why not let the computer do all the work and then we can gripe, complain and blame the darn computer for our inevitable upcoming league failures…

Don Jones

It’s sort of an auto fantasy football league… no cost, no thinkin’, no problem. What fun!

Dennis Jones

…pretty much the same reasons I watch tv…

Doug Jones

I was going to auto draft all along… just trying to get some chatter going…. We could just flip a coin and see who wins the season. That’d be even more better!

Go Weasels!

October 20, 2005

WeaselSketch

One of the biggest games of the year takes place in cyberspace this weekend.

My beloved Sheboygan Wild Weasels (2 and 3) take on their arch rivals, (little brother Don’s) Sedro Wooley Phlegm (3 and 2) in what is destined to be a game for the ages. It’s big… it’s a grudge match… and it’s for all the marbles… whatever all that means.

Due to the Weasels slow start this season, disgusted fans have been lobbying for the team to change it’s name from the Weasels to the Possums since they always seem to play dead at home and get killed on the road.

Team owner Dennis Jones states with resolve and conviction that the team will absolutely NOT change it’s name to the Possums… probably…

The Comments

Don Jones

The Brothers Jones indecisive? Well, yes and no. The Phlegm will be fielding the one-legged Michael Vick this weekend seeing as how our back-up and past 2-week loser QB Brian Griese has taken his ACL into the shop for a makeover. Weasel Possoms are going down…

Dennis Jones

…the Weasels quarterbacking duties are up in the air, too… not sure if Dante Culpepper and the Vikings have returned from their Love Boat excursion yet or not… might have to start the Burger King at QB this week…

Don Jones

If you field the Burger King we aren’t showing. That is one creepy mascot.

Dennis Jones

…he’s no mascot… he’s a playmaker! …just watch his commercials…

Don Jones

He appears to have a real consistent self-serving non-team attitude with a botox’d face to match. Overdosed on Whoppers no doubt…

Dennis Jones

…maybe youre right… ok, were not starting the Burger King at QB this week… were starting the Pepsi machine instead… the Pepsi machines got good hands…

Don Jones

He’s not quite as heavy as the Pepsi machine but I hear the Subway’s Jared’s got game.

Dennis Jones

…yes, but he wears glasses… I need perfect vision from my starting quarterback…

Don Jones

Get old Jared one of them tinted face guards… that way my team won’t have to look at his face… plus, I’ve heard his breath is a killer. His breath gets him an additional 10 yards on every run.

Dennis Jones

ok… enough of this nonsense… ARE YOU READY TO MAKE THIS GAME INTERESTING?… HUH?… WELL… ARE YA?… THATS RIGHT… I’M YELLING…

I am so confidant that I am going to win this weekend that, if I should lose, I will let you pick ANY player from my team and trade for him with a scrub sitting on your bench…

and if I win… I get to trade for any one of your players for a scrub from my bench…

Whataya think about that, PhlegmBoy?

Don Jones

OH YEA!! I’ll take that little wager even though it means I will be DOWNGRADin’ by selecting from your scrub Weasel buffet. I believe my 20+ preview edge should hold up… Colts against the Texans… that’s should be about 40 points by itself. CHIEFS TONIGHT!… no t.v. coverage though.

Dennis Jones

Ha Ha… Don you have foolishly fallen into my evil trap… there is not a player on my team that is better than one of the scrubs sitting on your bench… so win or lose, if I can trade one of my loser guys for one of yours, I will have upgraded my team… HOO HOO! GO WEASELS! WIN! LOSE! WHO CARES! I WIN!

Don Jones

I’d like to up the ante with a dozen Krispy Kremes.

Dennis Jones

ok yer on… if I win I will go out and buy myself a dozen glazed… if you win you go out and buy yourself a dozen glazed…

Don Jones

That is such a deal. Cause you know… buy a dozen get a dozen FREE. Is it true that one donut has the equivalent of a pound of bacon grease? I sure hope so.

Don Jones

The Chief’s kicker Sir Lawrence KILLED US! Who ever heard of a kicker scoring 17 or so points? Who? Tines was on fire kicking a couple 50+ yard field goals in the Friday night Miami win. The radio reception was one step above poor but nevertheless… it was a NFL football game.

Dennis Jones

…well Don… sorry to do that to you, but I went ahead and unsheathed my top secret weapon on you which I said I had earlier over on your journal page.

Hey, there might still be some hope for you tonight… perhaps Michael Vick will score you 33 points in the Monday Night Football Game… but I wouldn’t hold my breath…

…in the mean time I will go ahead and start shopping the Phlegm roster for my new player…

Banshee

A few quick comments: 1) Chiefs fans around here were robed by the fact that they couldn’t watch the game, but I could vent for them for a few pages on that, so we’ll cut it here. 2) I thought the biggest game on the Weasels schedule was the one against the “Whoops, we managed to play a few guys on a BYE” Banshees that takes place next week… Banshee -FOWA: week of 4-10-05- Sometimes I forget what I am doing. When I come back to consciousness I find a couple of my players are on the Bye Week.

Banshee

Or “robbed”… either way, I guess…

Dennis Jones

Banshee, I believe fielding players which arent actually even playing that week is a true sign of confidence… and very intimidating to the opposing team you are playing… I DONT NEED ALL MY PLAYERS TO BEAT YOUR CRUMMY TEAM… you know, that sort of thing… I would strongly suggest you do the same thing next week against whoever your next opponent might be…

Don Jones

PHLEGM UPDATE I am enjoying my dozen KK donuts for this weeks unpredictable loss to those wicked conniving Weasels. I can’t seem to get the Lawrence Tines bitter loss after taste outta my mouth…

The Joy Of Painting Episode 3

March 15, 2006

JOP3

…with Bob Ross lookalike, Dennis Jones…

JOP3pic1

…this seemed like such a good idea before I did it…

JOP3pic2

…painting myself out of trouble…

To recap yesterdays exciting episode; …my client has given me the go ahead on my pencil sketch, so I am now ready to paint the illustration.

Using a light table I re-pencil the sketch onto a piece of watercolor paper. I get out my palette of gouache, some fresh water and try to determine what the best approach will be to get color onto this picture. I decide to lay down a wash of cool colors over the entire page first, and then come back and “paint up” the detail. That will be my game plan on this one.

It is fun throwing caution to the wind and slopping paint all over the paper (first picture) but as I try to “paint up” the detail I begin to struggle. This is a little different than my normal approach and I begin to wonder if I have made a big mistake doing it this way. I also begin to sweat bullets. This must be the same feeling a cowboy has when trying to break a bucking bronco. At first he probably wonders why he ever climbed onto its back, but after the horse calms down he must feel a great sense of accomplishment. After about thirty minutes of riding this illustration I find a painting groove, fall into it and get the job painted out. (second picture)

I now need to scan the artwork into my computer to finish the poster. I have a large format scanner, but the illustration is larger than my scanner bed, so I take two scans of the picture (the top and the bottom) and then piece them together in Photoshop.

There were some really tense moments during the painting process, but nothing to compare with the anxiety that was waiting for me as I started working in Photoshop. Tune in tomorrow for the next exciting episode of The Joy Of Painting!

The Comments

Thomas M.

Whew! … It’s like watching your team down by 6 with 5 seconds to go and the ball is on the 40 yard line. The “Hail Mary” is called. Then the play begins to develop … The quarterback, looking very similar to Brett Favre, has good protection, but the pocket is quickly collapsing. He heaves the ball down the field, towards the end zone… Right now the ball is in the air and descending towards the huddled receivers and cornerbacks, both of whom are sweating bullets. Will it end with triumph or disappointment for our team?!?

Dennis Jones

…well, just so you know, my teams are the Colts and the Chiefs… and they never win the big game…

Don Jones

Thomas, You hit that metaphor right on the head. After reading Dennis’ first paragraph and his quick summary of a “BIG MISTAKE” I thought to myself “just trash it and start another one ” But this is the difference between professional illustrators and kindergarten sketchin’ hacks. Hacks call a time-out… the pros throw “the bomb.”

Thomas M.

Yes, I’ve got this visual in my head…

8Brett

…that just fits with the story line… I too have been burnt by the Chiefs (Lived in KC from 79-01) and keep pulling for Manning and the Colts since moving to SW Michigan … So, I knew I couldn’t use either Green or Manning as visuals – just wouldn’t work 😉

Thomas M.

Don, thanks! (rummaging through the trash for yesterday’s sketch) … It just hit me … No Real (drat, gum’s on the paper) big deal. Heh … Yeah (hmm, I think I can (rip) … drat)…. So, anyway … GO TEAM!! (note to self … don’t write anymore good, positive, metaphors after giving up on something).

Doug Jones

This reminds me of the old PBS Julia Child trick, Dennis. First you show all the ingredients thrown into a pan… place the pan in the oven… and pull out a DONE cake! (or whatever) Presto! Note to Nick Jones Everybody… I think there is a market here for a DVD…

Dennis Jones

…NickJonesEverybody is vacationing… I mean… working… in Mexico this week…

Chris Norman

I haven’t had this much fun reading a blog in a while. I look forward to returning to the website the next day to see the next adventure in the joy of painting. But, I have a question: What color do you use to outline your drawings or do you use a dark pen to give it definition after painting? Thank you so much, I look forward to tomorrows blog.

megan

I love what that cool wash has done for the feeling of your illustration

Doug Jones

Dennis loves the feeling of a cool wash too…

Bucky Jones

Dennis, totally cool. Love seeing and reading your process…and literally seeing the sweat beads on your forehead. I had the same question as Chris about how you color the outline of your drawing/painting? I hesitate to ask how long the process took you from transferring the pencil sketch to the completed painting. Amazing.

Dennis Jones

…ok Chris and Bucky… 99.5% of the line work in one of my pictures is just painted line done with a brush in the process of painting the picture… I try to completely “paint” a picture to the finish… but at the end I always darken up some of the lines with various things… a fine tip pen, a brush marker, whatever is laying around that will do the job… but my favorite thing to add those final touches with is just a plain old colored pencil…

Bucky Jones

Thanks, Dennis. It’s always curious and interesting to learn how other illustrators work. Thanks again for sharing. Oh, and keep these Step-By-Steps coming!—- Okay, I’m heading back to the playground for some kickball. Maybe this time you guys will ACTUALLY show up….pleasssssse.

Travis Jackson

Greetings from NWArkansas….Great work Dennis…I’m enjoying the transformation of this little work of art….fun stuff…keep it up…you and your brothers are an encouragement. (ah shucks…tear drop).

Travis Jackson

One other note…I love the little details throughout…fun to look at and feel the textures….for example the chairs…just the little touches of highlights and shape of cushion makes me feel like I have sat in a chair like that before. Great stuff…

Official Draft Day Report Card

May 1, 2006

BenRothlesburger

…2004 Draft Day Bust Ben Roethlisberger…

Every year I enjoy listening to the “experts” predict what players will be drafted by different NFL teams. It’s fun on draft day to listen to these same “experts” analyze why the NFL teams took different players than the ones they said they would.

What I find most interesting is seeing the “experts” post report cards afterwards on how the draft went. They give each team a letter grade on how well they drafted. I suppose this letter grade is contingent on how closely the team picked in relation to the “experts” predictions for them.

Well, not to be outdone, I now give you the Official Brother Jones Report Card grade… B- …maybe a C+…

..I base this grade on absolutely nothing…

…just like the “experts”.

The Comments

Don Jones

The NFL excitement was in the air on Saturday. I tuned in to my five local antennae stations but no DRAFT DAY coverage. I give the K.C. Chiefs a solid B for going out and rounding up some DE by the name of Tamba Hali. I like the name and believe this boy can play.

Dennis Jones

I’ll have to give Tamba Hali a B+ for being drafted… but I am afraid I will have to give him a D- for having a hard name for me to pronounce…

I also give Dons comment a C+…

…and Doug a D- just for fun…

Don Jones

Doug’s D- is for desertion. He’s been a no-show since last Friday. I give you an “R” for this awesome Rothslithburger drawing.

Dennis Jones

…well …sorry to say, Don, I have to give you a D- for not being able to spell Roethlisberger… but I give Roethlisberger an F for having an impossible name to spell…

Doug Jones

D- Doug reporting in…. The Teen Titans and all of Nashville seem to be THRILLED with their new draft pick, Vince Young. Word on the street is McNair is trying to get a deal with the Ravens… it’s a weird world…

Doug Jones

I’m boycotting BrotherJones today to support my fellow Hickspanics.

Dennis Jones

…oh, I see… you walked off the Brother Jones job site today… I’m afraid I’m going to have to change your grade from a D- to an F for that… sorry…

Doug Jones

F? …. F? …. that’s Fantastic!

Don Jones

I was thinking Vince Young used to be in Pure Prairie League and married Amy Grant a few years back. Now he’s been drafted!!??? I give him a grade of V for versatile. Had dinner with Michael Card last night… O.K. I was just in the back of the room and saw him at a distance. I did get a door prize of his new C.D.

Roballoo

The stunned look on the player’s face looks like he was hit in the helmet with a football.

Roballoo

Michael Card ~ He’s a talented little chap. Recently, I wrote some new words to his song “So little time…” Whole lotta food. So little time. It’s a church potluck, and there’s a long line.

Don Jones

I’m sure if Michael heard this rendition he would incorporate it in his concerts I give this comment a strong B+…

Dennis Jones

…I think that lyric would have worked much better if it were switched around…

It’s a church potluck, and there’s a long line…
Whole lotta food, so little time…

…so I am going to have to grade him down a bit for that… B-

Don Jones

Second verse… I know it’s wrong, and certainly a sin- But Uncle Roy’s up front, So I’m cuttin’ in.

Roballoo

Good one. maybe Mr. card will hire us to work on his next album!

bernardfromtheyard

Hey guys, What a cool site… I give myself a D- for not being named Jones but I love football almost as much as Dennis’ art! How much to buy a Big Ben Parody design for our T-Shirt store?

Doug Jones

Darn!!! what’s going on with LOST? I am still in shock over last nights episode!

Regional Football Coverage

September 18, 2006

PainterTestRod

…a 30 minute color sketch…

NFL regional football coverage is great IF you like the team in your area. If you don’t like the team in your area… well… too bad… you’re going to watch your regional team play every Sunday anyway.

Doug lives in Nashville and gets to watch the Titans game each week. So far they have scored a grand total of 23 points in their two games and are currently 0-2.

Don lives in Missouri and gets to watch the Chiefs play each week. So far this year they have accumulated a whopping 16 points and are currently 0-2.

I live in Indiana and get to watch the Colts play each week. So far they have racked up almost 70 points in their two games and are currently 2-0.

This is about the only time of the year when it’s really good to live in Indiana.

The Comments

Doug Jones

Go ahead… rub it in… say… is this a digital doodle Denny? it’s nice and loosey goosey…

Keegan Jones

The Colts are the most exciting team in football to watch these days. Gotta call it now, Colts in the Superbowl.

Don Jones

Let’s not forget those San Diego Chargers… They just might give Peyton a run for his money.

Doug Jones

au contraire… The Titans are even MORE exciting! At the end of 3 quarters of play, they had racked up 2 (yes, TWO!) first downs! And one of those was the result of a 15 yard penalty on the Chargers. What a team!

Dennis Jones

…watching the Colts play live is a lot like watching the Colts play on the Madden Video Football Game… everything seems to work for them…

Don Jones

I think Coach Jeff may want to look into a greeter job at a local Nashville Wal-Mart. “Welcome to Wal-Mart. You may recognize me… I’m the former Titan’s coach. Enjoy your shopping experience… the milk and eggs are located about 30 yards deep, corner slant.”

Dennis Jones

HEY HEY HEY… BIG NEWS IN HUNTINGTON INDIANA… we have a brand new Walmart Super Center opening here THIS WEEK… now we have a McDonalds AND a Walmart Super Center…

…we has arrived!

Roballoo!

I think you’re right Don – it does have that bit o’ digital look to it. What I’m wondering is how’d Dennis get that football player to sit stil long enough on a Sunday to sketch him?

Doug Jones

yeah… answer the pressing question, Den… what media is this?

Dennis Jones

…digital …definitely digital …Wopner …time for Wopner …definitely time for Wopner…

Doug Jones

digital Whoppers? Whaaaaaat?

Don Jones

Den, last week at our local Wal-Marts they had Fritos or Cheetos for a buck a bag. You many want to look for that up there at your grand Super Center Opener.

Dennis Jones

…well… you can bet I’ll be there when the doors open… and probably have orange Cheetos crumbs strung down the front of my shirt a few hours after…

Don Jones

For me it’s the orange fingertips that gives me away… and the orange ring around my mouth… not that I inhale these processed pieces of cheese flavored fabricated cardboard or anything.

Doug Jones

I believe that the correct term for the orange stuff left on your fingers is cheedle… mr trivia….

Dennis Jones

…hmm …you can learn something new every time you visit Brother Jones… it doesn’t amount to much, but it’s new…

Don Jones

That is one word I am adding to my vokabularry.

Doug Jones

ARRRRGH!

Aviator Sketch

Aviatorhead

My home state NFL football Colts won this week. So did Doug’s home state football Titans. Don… looks like a long year for you and your home state football Chefs… I mean Chiefs. At least they had a really good HBO special this year.

The Comments

Jason Bourne

Great moustashe. My team, the Cowboys won last night also… And no one was chasing me (whew).

Don Jones

I was fortunate enough to see the Chiefs HBO show while I was in Indianapolis. Apparently, that was the high point for the season. I am sorry to report that I watched the FedEx Cup golf tourney and only switched to the Chief’s game on commercial breaks. It was more than I wanted to see of Coach Herm’s foncused football project.

Doug Jones

What are you sayin’… has the football season already started?

Don Jones

My prediction for the Chiefs… it’s already come and gone.

Dennis Jones

…well, I’d say the Chiefs will be at least as good as Cleveland this year…

Doug Jones

I enjoyed watching that old #4 cheesehead out there on the field. I find myself rooting for the old guys more and more…. dunno why…

Don Jones

I think the CHiefs will have their hands full with the dreaded Oakland Raidaaazzz. San Diego on the other hand… yeow. Tough.

Dennis Jones

…in that Green Bay game… did you see the Eagles fan in the crowd that had a big square chunk of aluminum foil on his head labeled Philadelphia Cream Cheese?

Doug Jones

missed seeing that…. dang!

Don Jones

I just heard someone say the Chiefs need to get Bill Cower back… Great idear.

Dennis Jones

…I say get Jerry Clower instead… remember that guy?

Don Jones

“Shoot up here amongst us!! One of us just has’ta get some relief!!!”

Doug Jones

Woo… knock him out, John!

This weekend the 1933 version of King Kong with Fay Wray was on TV so I watched it. What a hoot! The claymation special effects are great and those close up shots of Kong’s face are priceless.

The Comments

Don Jones

I checked my local listings and apparently King Kong was only on Kable. I can’t quite stomach watching the CHiefs anymore. What are we looking at up there in the illustration and inset? Blues first and then a colored rendition?

Doug Jones

Hey… how do you like the way our (Titans) field kicks up as you run on it. It’s like special effects.

Dennis Jones

1) …yes, King Kong was on the classic movie channel…
2) …and, yes, the Chiefs stink…
3) …I’m still just experimenting, trying to find my voice in the computer coloring world…
4) …yes, that is one fine, special effects field the Titans have… they always play Indie a good game…

Doug Jones

We came close… but no cigar.

Jason Bourne

Tubular! He would make a great Star Fox character. And I wish Pixar would make it into a movie.

Roballoo

Looks like it’s easy to add the colors when the image is only 112×146. I like the smiling determination on his face.

Doug Jones

I always liked the original KK. It was state of the art movie making at the time. It was the favorite movie of Bill Gaines, publisher of Mad magazine. For his birthday one year, the artists made a life-sized Kong head and put it outside his window (lookin in) in his NYC office. He loved it.

Dennis Jones

…oops …I was just looking at this picture and realized I forgot to put the other ear on this bear…

Chiefs Numero Uno!

October 22, 2007

GoChiefsI would have never thought it a month ago, but our very own, home state, Kansas City Chiefs are NUMBER ONE in the Western Division of the National Tackle Football League! I’m not sure how long this will last, so I say celebrate now!

The Comments

Jason Bourne

Congrats KC. My team, Cowboys, are #1 in the NFC. Yeehaww. Im looking forward to the Colts vs Patriots game. GO COLTS…

Don Jones

Even though it was a low scoring affair yesterday, the Chiefs vs. Raiders was pretty entertaining. I enjoy the camera pans into the “black hole.”

Dennis Jones

…I didn’t get to see the game… how did Priest Holmes look?

Don Jones

He was in there for about 3 or 4 plays. Just not enough action for me to get a clear picture of his status.

Dennis Jones

…did you see the highlight of Randy Moss catching the pass with his shoulder? …very impressive…

Doug Jones

Titans couldn’t get into the end zone… but Rob Bironas fired in 8 field goals. Whoever had him on their fantasy football team really hit the jackpot last week.

Dennis Jones

…since the Colts played on Monday night this week, they showed the Titans game here on Sunday… Bironas has a pretty interesting story…

Jason Bourne

I really don’t like the new rule against spiking the ball… Its going too far. What next?

Roballoo

Oh, I guess it’s time for Football season isn’t it. Go Niners!

Don Jones

Since you didn’t ask, I will go ahead and give the AWFFL status… PHLEGM WIN! But, we did take a major hit with the Numero Uno RB Ronnie Brown tearing his ACL. Loser. He still has one good leg to run on.

Roballoo

How many responses do we have to get before we get a new blog entry? At least 10 by my count.

Jason Bourne

Here is 11. I can’t believe it will be November. Where does the time go?

A Quick Digital Color

I have a little free time once again and this is a quick digital color sketch I did tonight.

The Comments

Jason Bourne

Swizanki! I like the highlights.

Don Jones

Looks like the Chiefs have hung it up for the season.

Dennis Jones

…I wonder what long suffering Chiefs fans would rather have… an exciting, high scoring Dick Vermeil style offense that breaks your heart year after year… or a low scoring, boring Herm Edwards style offense that breaks your heart year after year…

Jason Bourne

And Miami with no wins…

Don Jones

I had the opportunity to purchase end zone tickets for yesterday’s Chargers game. I concluded, why buy tickets to sit in the frigid stadium and watch the Chiefs crash and burn when I could do the same… laying on my couch, sipping Swiss Miss and snoozing as I so desired? Huh?

Doug Jones

I’m with the Donz. When they install recliners at the stadium… I’ll buy a ticket…

Dennis Jones

…I suspect it will be pretty easy to score Chiefs tickets the rest of this season…

Don Jones

I talked to Vendor David this morning who attended the game yesterday. His wife purchased tickets for his birthday. He did not say ONE THING about the game except how stinkin’ cold he was.

Dennis Jones

…high praise for the Chiefs stellar performance…
