I left this message on my phone today:

"Hi, this is David. I am gone for Tax Season and won't be back until late April. I'm off to look for the missing billion dollars. Monday, I will check under the seats at Met Life Stadium. After that, who knows where. Good luck, all, but don't try to follow me. I'm packing."

Drumming up some estate work?

These obnoxious ads keep popping up on The Food Network that my wife watches every afternoon. No, that bald guy is not me.

You gotta admit that ad will catch them some customers. Naive taxpayer thinks HR has some magic that gets them "their share" of government $ sitting on the stadium seats. I assume the ad will cease running once The Big Game is over.

I think we can all acknowledge that their target - turbo tax - probably does cause many taxpayers to leave money on the table (or take money they shouldn't). Any tax preparer worth their salt should be able to beat TT (this includes about 50% of tax preparers, including HRB).

Do I take it that David is really retiring or did he leave this message as a result of a depressive episode brought on by the winter weather? If you retire, the biggest problem you're likely to run into is dodging the wife (though I can't judge everyone's relationships by my own). Find a good ladder to climb out the window if you can. Romeo was ardent to climb up the ladder or the vine or the wall to woo Juliet, but had they ended up married and with some age on them, he'd be looking for the same old ladder to make his discreet getaways, as needed.

No sugar cane is sweet at both ends, as the old Chinese saying goes, so if your life has been miserable up to this point, you can look forward to a happy retirement. Try to get your wife interested in soap making to keep her busy, and for yourself, look into a duck carving course. I can recommend no better pursuit than to take up the study of the I Ching. Get the copy where Jung writes the forward...it's still in print. If you ever need part-time work, talk to your son about getting yourself a part-time job as an American-based drone pilot (most, but not all, of your kills will be overseas)....it's like playing video games and it pays well.

Damn snow today is making it hard to find the money left on the seats at Met Life.

I think it was all the Bronco's hyperbole left on the seats.

I just looked at the score for the first time today (no kidding). 43-8. This explains why I didn't watch at all last night, and paid no attention to the Bowl at all except that I used it as an excuse to snack heavily on things last evening that I normally don't eat.

I have been turned off by professional football for some time, and it's just made me sick to see the infection spread so badly through the college ranks. All about money today and nothing but money. Money and hype and of course it will never change but only get worse from here on.

I did read the book "Moneyball" (Michael Lewis) and got a bit interested in professional baseball again, and I note that Billy Beane did win Baseball Almanac's manager of the year this year (he's probably won it before) and he seems to be able to keep adapting his system to make it work for the times.

I left football years ago. I got tired of the "look at me" by the players. AKA touchdown celebrations. For pete's sake...act like you've been there before! Baseball's my game
