Colin Kaepernick is Saying Things We’d Prefer not to Hear

The NFL preseason just doesn’t do it for me. I don’t watch the games, I don’t enjoy the highlights, and, unlike with some other sports, I just find it difficult to get invested in positional battles to see who will make the final roster. As we say in New England, “In Bill We Trust,” and…

The Most Fun I Never Want to Have Again, Part 2

Catch Part 1 here in case you missed it. “FIRE FIRE FIRE!!! GET OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW!!!!!” Yelled an irate Petty Officer Garza. We all were in a daze and extremely confused as to what was happened but all repeated in unison, “FIRE FIRE FRE!” as we scrabbled to get our go fasters (sneakers) on and…

Gambling: Sports Betting & Dostoevsky

A couple months ago, James created this website and I drafted my biography in the “About” section before writing my first piece. These few paragraphs describe us to an extent, but it’s much easier to go for humor when you’re introducing yourself to an audience that doesn’t really know you and, in practice at least,…

The Most Fun I Never Want to have Again, Part 1

I spent the weekend moving fellow Aardvarkian, James, to NYC to begin a new and exciting chapter in his life when something hit me. His mother was doing her usual “last minute” motherly things, like making his bed for the final time, when I looked that and thought, “It is a wonder that we use…

The Dangers of Hillary

The other night, while the boys were out, politics came up, and how dangerous that was! We at the Aardvark, for the most part, are like minded people. However we can stray a bit and here goes Uncle Doogs!! Our dangerous topics of politics is not nearly as dangerous as who I think the Democratic…

The Curious Case of the Neoconservative Revival

In recent days, the Hillary Clinton campaign has sought to reach out to Independents and Republicans to build an anti-Trump coalition that reaches across party lines. It strategically makes sense. Polling suggest she has Democrats secured—and any holdouts that haven’t been swayed yet aren’t all that likely to come around in the next 3 months….

Eavesdropping: Big Brother & Daytime Television

So today I was pondering my prolonged absence from the Aardvark and why it may have come about and then it hit me: Big Brother. For those unfamiliar with the show, it consists of maybe 16 or so mid-twenty-somethings moving into a house next to a studio in LA (I presume it’s LA) for the…

A Man and his Thoughts on Martha’s Vineyard

Uncle Doogs, tuning back in from One Aardvark World Headquarters. This time I do not share the pleasure of being flanked by James or Pat, for I am here alone. It is a sobering experience spending some time away alone without some of your closest friends around. Hell they aren’t even on the same landmass…

My Love Affair with Sunsets

“I dont get it, I just don’t get it!” exclamed a confused fellow coastie (who will remain namelss). “Bub I just don’t get why you loves sunsets so much.” The debate continues on our 29 foot Response Boat Small – II (RBS-II). I think he is maybe too small minded to enjoy sunsets, but really…

Night Time Listening with the NAD C316 BEE

As my bio says, I am a big lover of America, but also a big lover of music. Shocking, since I have never really written anything pertaining to music until the other day when I saw Coldplay. My other big passion that is mated with music is the fact I am becoming more and more…

It’s Official!!

Quick post everyone! We have finally made things official! This morning, while drinking mimosas enjoying a lovely breakfast at our World Headquarters in Edgartown, MA, we bought the URL!!!! It should be live instantly, but may be a bit spotty so bear with us for about 72 hours until everything gets ironed out. Appreciate all of…

My Vote against DJT

Well folks, there was a point in time where I would proudly say I was going to vote for Donald J. Trump. I remember James’ dad pulling me aside one day saying, “You aren’t serious are you?” To which I replied, “No.” That was about six months ago, when I wasn’t serious about voting for…
