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.

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!

…riding his trusty Indianapolis Colt…

In a little known sub-story from the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Eomer of Rohan gallops into battle on his trusty Indianapolis Colt to combat the dreaded Bearmen of Chicagohan.

Doug Jones

Where is Elmer’s plaid hat?

Don Jones

Den, I’m thinking this is your Super Bowl prediction. Colts over Bears in a RUNAWAY!!! Pass the Guachamoldie!!

Mark Behm

Hah ha! Great armor.

Dennis Jones

…as it is with all good tales, our hero’s fate was in question throughout most of the story… but with the help of his trustworthy Indianapolis Colt, Rohan galloped on to victory …29 to 17…

Don Jones

Dennis, you need to pack up and move it back to MO and fast. The Chiefs are down but not completely OUT. Your Super Bo-Mo-Jo is just what Coach Herm is needing!

Doug Jones

Yeah… move outta that frozen waste land… OR.. move to Wisconsin and give Farve a little help next year

Dennis Jones

…I bought a brand new bag of hi-priced “On The Border” chips and “On The Border” salsa to munch on during the Super Bowl, got engaged in the drama that was unfolding before me on the tv set and forgot to eat them… rats… the game could have been SO much better if I had just remembered them…

Doug Jones

Those chips and salsa are HORRID! (a little Simon Cowell lingo, there) Why don’t you FedEx them to me and I will dispose of them for you.

Dennis Jones

…I think I will just hang onto them so I will have chips n salsa ready next year as I am watching the Colts win the Super Bowl again…

Doug Jones

that ship has sailed… next year it’ll be Vince Young getting a free Escalade…

Doug Jones

I was just wondering… does this guy strap on a couple of diapers so he doesn’t have to make stops on his journey?

Dennis Jones

…I don’t know about him, but I’m trying it on my next journey to Mtn. Grove… if it’s good enough for Nasa astronauts, it’s good enough for me…

Doug Jones

I bet this makes the postal workers happy. Now instead of going “postal” you can say someone is going “Astro”

Dennis Jones

…or as Astro from the Jetson’s would say… Rastro!

Don Jones

I can’t seem to be able to comment on the recent Sock Monkey Wood Retrieval page. Must be from all that snow you received up there around the Lakes.

What A Super Bowl!

February 4, 2008

Harpooner

OK, that had to be like the best Super Bowl I’ve see… ever! An undefeated team, DEFEATED in the championship game! The underdog team making a last minute drive at the end to win! Wow!

The Comments

Doug Jones

OH NOooo… I thought the game was NEXT week!

Doug Jones

Them goggles make me think this may be a steampunk bear… right?

Dennis Jones

…Doug, I am now a huge fan of steampunk thanks to you …I always liked that “look”, but never new it had a name…

Jason Bourne

Cool gun. Congrats Giants, that was a great Super Bowl. You earned that trophy and know how to play.

Don Jones

I yelled loud on that big corner pass connection between Eli and Plex. Slung Whoppers all over the basement… This illustration has MOXY. Nice.

Dennis Jones

…I added the Giants logo today before I posted this picture in honor of their fabulous win…

Doug Jones

What are the odds that two brothers would win back-to-back Super Bowls? Dennis… you win the Super Bowl next year and then we will see if Don can win it the next… OK?

Dennis Jones

…you’re talking about the big, all you can eat, Super Chili Bowl, right?

Don Jones

The logo in the background is so timely. The Manning brothers are in the record books … the Jones brothers simply have a record. Den, how is that parole deal going?

Jon Slone

Thank God the giants won!! With as much dislike that God gives a person, I’ve placed all mine on the Snobby patriots!!! Long live Manning-Mania! Terry Kath signing out

Dennis Jones

…I’m pretty sure Terry Kath signed out a couple of years ago…

Jason Bourne

First Peyton and now Eli. That is just cool,back to back.

I seem to be falling into an “only draw the Colts” rut… but I don’t have a problem with that since it has been scientifically proven that they are the best team in the league without question… ever. I still can’t believe Peyton won a Super Bowl last year and his little brother Eli won it the next… what a story.

The Comments

Don Jones

best team ever … except for the ‘69 Chiefs. This guy has some major ‘ceps. woah.

Dennis Jones

…no, I’m sorry Don… a team of renowned football scientists who are much, much smarter than us have reached a consensus on this subject and determined the Colts to be the best team ever… who are we to question their conclusions on this subject? …we must simply accept what they say and act on it as fact…

Don Jones

That is merely “the Man” trying to keep us in our place. We must rise up and with one voice and declare that all Hoosiers and Hicks are football lovers too!

Dennis Jones

…Don… how dare you call into question the consensus opinion of football scientists… every single one in the whole world agrees that the Colts are the best team ever, so it must be true… I believe I even saw something about this on the NFL Channel… if it’s on TV it has to be true…

jeff

on the other hand, the Dallas Plowboys, in double blind testing were the only team to choke on a sack of mini marshmallows..

Dennis Jones

…hmm …well, ok Jeff, I guess you cannot argue with the scientificness of the double blind test…

Doug Jones

Colts?… Colts?… that sounds like it should be a team from Kentucky- horse country. The name SHOULD be the Indy Hoosiers. Then you could go to games and yell… “Hoosier Daddy?”

Jason Bourne

I love to draw football players. Can’t wait for the new season!

Jon Slone

The colts are the greatest! The way football should be played. Best coach! Best wide receivers! And lets not forget……the coolest nnames! Peyton, marvin, Dallas and Fern Blanston! Nobody wraps a bum toe or fills a cup like Fern!

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

If Al says it… then it is so. Just remember, he invented the internets.

Dennis Jones

…now yer thinkin’ right…

New England Video Scandal

April 4, 2008

105RedSox

I don’t claim to be much of a baseball fan, but I think it is just outrageous that the Red Sox illegally videotaped the St. Louis Rams workout before they played each other in the Super Bowl a few years back… that just ain’t right.

The Comments

Don Jones

The Royals are undefeated this season (3-0). The world is coming to an end.

Doug Jones

i think he stripped his gears rounding third…

Jason Bourne

Kool cleats…and shading! I think I see the Target logo.

Bullseye!

Go Coats!

ColtHorsie

In honor of the Indinaplits Coats winning their second Super Bowl in four years, I am posting a “How To Paint An Indinaplits Coat” video. Just follow this easy tutorial and in no time, you will be painting Indinaplits Coats with the best of ‘em…

You can see a small version of this video in my comment section below, or a larger, better version on my Vimeo page.

The Comments

Don Jones

This gets me pumped for the big game! Let the Coats Tailgating begin…

Dennis Jones

…need I remind you, Don, of the Dennis Jones Championship Mojo!?

Nik

WOW!I bet if the NFL saw this they would like to make Colts shirts with this on it.

Doug Jones

good videeeO. So Peyton is gonna whup up on those poor, hurricane ravaged Saints? The big bully…

Dan Lietha

Awesome video Dennis! Helps take a bit of the sting away from the Vikings loss … a “bad, bad dream”. GO COLTS!

Dennis Jones

…Dan, I believe I could hear you groaning all the way up here as Favre single handedly yanked a defeat out of a sure victory with that last pass of his career…

Jon Slone

Favre will go down in history as a profesional throw-it-to-the-guy-on-the-other-team kinda quarterback! Go Colts!!!!!

Jeff

I am still saving for my graphics tablet, For now I will have to try one with my airbrush..Overlook the big star on his helmet.

Dennis Jones

…well, it’s out… the long awaited Apple DIGITAL TABLET!!!

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

Steve Jobs could almost pass as a Jones brother…

Dan Lietha

If you haven’t already watched the iPad Keynote presentation from yesterday on the Apple site, go there and zoom ahead in the presentation to 42:22. The app “Brushes” is demonstrated. Very cool!

Dennis Jones

…my problem is that what I was hoping this would be a drawing slate with a touch screen that had about 3000 degrees on sensitivity… in other words a tiny little Cintiq… which this was never going to be…

…the Brushes program is nice, but painting with my fingers frustrates me… I would like to do more with a portable drawing slate than just play around and kill time with it…

…so I guess I will just continue to wait and hope for Wacom to get into this market with an actual PORTABLE Cintiq style computer tablet…

Jeff

I don’t know Dennis, maybe it could help you take your famous “exhaustive” notes during sermons..

Dan Lietha

I agree with your take on the iPad Dennis. Keep in mind this is version 1 and 3rd party manufacturers have come out with a stylus for the iPhone and iPod Touch so the same will likely happen for the iPad. Levels of sensitivity is another issue that hopefully Apple will improve.

Grimwood of Rohan had studied all the Saruman game film and was ready for Super Bowl Sunday…

The Comments

Doug Jones

is that a smoke monster creeping up behind this guy? Time to head for the hatch!

Dennis Jones

…I think it’s a blitzing Saruman linebacker…

Jeff

Watch out for massive ORCfensive linesmen I hear they are trouble.

Doug Jones

this looks to me like Favre in his new job, after another retirement…

Dennis Jones

…ok, I will officially rename this guy Farvwood of Rohan…

Nik

Whoa! Arnold Swarzenager would be running from this guy!

Doug Jones

GO SAINTS!

Dennis Jones

…wha??? …I know what that is. That’s the bitter Colts division rival Titans fan talking there…

Doug Jones

Rachel made me say that…

Dennis Jones

…Super Bowl XLIV …your basic cajun/hoosier steel cage death match…

Bernard Molek

Hey Dennis! Howz iz everyone over herez doing theez dayz? (not whtz going on with the “z’s”) Can I re-post (with credits) your “COATS” video on my blog for some poor circulation? LMK!

Dennis Jones

…hey Bernard, good to hear a shout out from you. …where ya been? Sure, post that video up however you want… I’m hoping that since your Steelers are out you’re now pulling for my Colts…

Bernard Molek

Dennis you remember me? Aghhh! That and 4$ outta get me a good cup-o-joe these days. I think it’s been more than a year or more….Steelers AND Penz won it all. You betcha I’m pullin’ fer the Colts why many a wouldn’t wanna hearz butt back in the day (60’s) every Stiller fan had to have a backup team (cuz o the smell) and the Colts were mine!

Dennis Jones

…I’ve only lived in Indiana for the last 12 years or so, but I’ve noticed a lot of the long timers around these parts root for the Steelers and not the Colts… when I asked why, they told me when they were growing up, Indiana didn’t have an NFL team, so they all just rooted for the Steelers in the AFC and the Bears in the NFC…

Jeff

O.K. Super Bowl Sunday Overlaps with Church and Orchestra Practice. Is it TOTALLY Wrong to fake the flu or does this fall under the forgivable clause?? I need a ruling on the field.

Dennis Jones

…you can do what I do and jump up in the middle of a church service with a cell phone in your hand and run out the door to take the emergency fake phone call you just got… I’m hoping that one falls in the forgivable category, too…

Dennis Jones

…I have, however, discovered that when you use the fake phone call in the middle of church every single week it seems to lose some of its effectiveness…

Doug Jones

you can always do the potty dance as to go out the door…

Jeff

I am watching old re-runs of football and practicing saying “Amen” when a good play happens…Then I just have to wear my ear buds and listen to the game.. I just have to avoid yelling “NO WAY!!!!You GoTTA BE KIddING MEEE!!!

Dennis Jones

…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God… NO WAY!! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!

Jeff

Are YOU BLIND????

Jeff

2 more weeks and I will have my tablet..

Doug Jones

Moses had TWO tablets…

Bernard Molek

Re: Moses Had two tablets…Crack me up! Or, those that have eyes to see, then see…(ear-bud react: ARE YOU BLIND? MY GRANMOTHER COULD SEE THAT!) …aghh itz nice to be back in crazyville. Er, I mean…Jonesville? Jeff, any special pricing for a tablet deals on a 2-fer?

Bernard Molek

Dennis, I like the color brown, but not on my nose. However, I just shamelessly posted a plug about you and your brothers stuff on the most secured, impossible to be found website blog of the world wide web! Get ready for a vacation cuz nobody and I mean nobody goes there!

Bernard Molek

Lol!

Dennis Jones

…HAH! …hey, Dougster, everyone is getting a Cintiq but you… come on now, get with the program… you won’t be sorry… it’s a tax write off… it’s educational and inspirational… I used to throw that last line out when I sold Rainbow Vacuum Sweepers… all one of them…

Nik

Wonder if we can get 100 comments?

Doug Jones

so… Mr. Cheap is telling me to shell out TWO THOUSAND BUCKS on a piece of hardware? It’ll be a cold day in Nashville before I do that… Hey… it IS a cold day in Nashville…

Bernard Molek

Doug! I thought they werte only $1,000 geesh! I need a job working at Dennis’ office!

Dennis Jones

…mr. cheap? …MR.CHEAP?? …just because I never sprung for a map back in the 80’s doesn’t mean I’m cheap… it just means I enjoyed interacting with people as I ask for directions…

Don Jones

RIPOFF! I paid close to $1,000 for my BIG CHIEF tablet and its only a pad of paper….

Jeff

I am Big Chief tablet…Can we stick to the script for once…Jeez.
The xl tablets are less than 500 if you dont mind looking at 1 monitor while drawing on the tablet..

Dennis Jones

…let’s see now… my script for TuhTonkah Fire Engines says Jeff plays the role of Big Chief Tablet, I play the part of medicine man DancesWithWeasels, Doug plays the hapless NoCintiiq and Don plays the part of loyal sidekick StandsToPee…

Jeff

No CintiiQ is weaselfoot indian for .. Cheap Skate right?

Bernard Molek

Aghh! That’s nice….leave me out in the cold. Hey? Can I be a “Cold-Tablet”?

Nik

Wish I knew what to say here,LOL

Doug Jones

GO SAINTS! (just pumping up your comment numbers, Den)

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

I sense some severe internal friction coming from the Brother Jones Oklahoma City Video Annex.

Doug Jones

Dennis Jones

Doug Jones
