Blogging from Da Caribbean

So I've blogged from South America, Europe, Africa, now da Caribbean. What's left? Asia? Australia? Da South Pole? Outta Space?

Fung's already made his mark - he managed to clog da toilet. Seems to be taking quite a while to unclog too. Now perhaps it's time to go out and mingle with the locals. But dinner first perhaps.

Go Catz! Destroy the 'Cuse!

Speaking of Solchers Fielt...

Payton's family wants to donate statue at Soldier Field

According to a Payton family spokeswoman, park district officials explained that Soldier Field and the area surrounding it is to be preserved strictly as a memorial to war veterans. There also is concern a Payton statue outside of Soldier Field might diminish the stature of other former Bears Hall of Famers.

I think we can all agree that Payton is a veteran of many wars, of the gridiron type. Can't we find a way to compromise?

The bronze statue, being constructed in Wasilla, Alaska,

So that Payton can turn his steely gaze towards Russia, and they will know that they can't phokk with the USA! I'm also having trouble remembering why I should know this town name...

One former Bears Hall of Famer whose likeness is not on the sculpture (currently in Solchers Fielt - ed) is Mike Ditka, who had feuded with the McCaskey family.

Dikka vs Halas - who wins dat one?
