Pirates & Cowboys

For any who did not know...pirates are alive and well on the high seas around the world. Yes, I mean like on ships kidnapping people or stealing from other ships. We routinely capture them when we go out on our deployments. It mostly happens around the Straits of Malacca - it is a choke point for a vast amount of the world's sea traffic and it is easy for pirates to see what comes thru and then follow for a few days. Also off the coast of Africa. Case in point - currently we have pirates who have taken a ship full of Russian tanks and are demanding millions in ransom. I am sure that will turn out well for them.

And closer to home...My Cowboys lost in a disgusting display off poor offensive and defensive play calling. But I guess I can't complain too much about being 3-1 right now. That said, only an NFL record 6th Superbowl win this year will satisfy this fan.
