DOG PHILOSOPHY: For a lil old chiweenie dog…thoughts about “cosmic convergence things” are a bit too deep…..but in a funny sort of way, I kind of understand. As time goes by, you will see that my stories of BD’s collection will document a wonderful indomitable attitude which was spawned by the folks that were brought…Details
Howdy all ya’ll (plural for ya’ll in Texas where I come from)….for my name is L E….and I am a dog of the Chiweenie kind….which means that I’m half Chihuahua and half Weiner dog…..and talk about an interesting mix….with the heat of the Latin blood mixed in equal portions with the calculative of the Arian race…as that creates a dog who outside of those HUMANS that I love is called La Diabla by most other HUMANS that I know….cuz they perceive me as one seriously devilish bitch (as in female dog) with attitude….who has a daily moniker for all unsuspecting HUMANS who cross my path of ”I’ll bite um” ….but that’s a story for another day.
The first thing that you need to understand before you go any further into this site is that I am a Sportsphile…..visa vie the name of this web page….as I made up the word Sportsphile after having lived with one for 115 years (dog years)….for a Sportsphile is a person (HUMANS and dogs included….and probably many otherr animals) who loves…lives…eats…breathes…and probably dreams about sports…and I mean all the time.
This web page and all of its content is the result of my recent inheritance stemming from the lifetime that I have spent with my all time favorite HUMAN….my very own Bone Daddy…the original Sportsphile in my life. So, I can share any piece of sports memorabilia in our extensive sports collection…..or any vintage video of sports, music, comedy, tv ads, tv specials and news in our video content of some 10,000 plus vintage video library that I choose to add to the stories I tell in my L E’s Stories section….just like these authentic framed pictures depicting major sporting events prior to 1920….which are on display in this page herewith.
Bone Daddy was my very own special gift from God Dog on the day I was born…..cuz all I can say is “I just love that man”. The reason for this entire endeavor is because it was Bone Daddy’s last wish (he’s not dead…it was just his last wish expressed directly to me) that I be the SHOWDOG and STORY TELLER for this site….for I have been given the responsibility of figuring out a way to share his entire sports memorabilia collection consisting of some 15,000 individual souvenir pieces….along with his 2,300 hour video collection (10,000+ separate videos) of sports, comedy, music, tv specials, tv ads and news library with anyone who might have an interest in viewing all or part of it. While viewing our site, keep in mind that dang near every picture of sports memorabilia appearing within these pages are actual pieces in Bone Daddy’s collection.
Every page in every section of this museum will provide a good laugh when it is needed to lift ones spirits….great music when it is needed to soothe ones soul. After all, God Dog (same a God to HUMANS) knows that all HUMANS need to laugh more….for my nickel they need to laugh a lot more….and we haven’t even begun to talk about soothing and enriching their souls. By the way, music doesn’t just soothe HUMAN souls…but also the souls of all us dogs and many of our animal friends. When you top all of that off with some of the sporting events and athletes playing and competing in the greatest games of all time with highlights and history….that’s what you will see from this accredited Sportsphile as I share some of the greatest achievements and highlights of participants and fans from the entire spectrum of sports.
From my perspective after observing HUMANS for all my 115 years on this Earth…there is nothing that moves HUMAN emotions in more directions than music…while there is nothing that heals the heart, the head and the soul of all HUMANS like a good ole belly laugh…and there is nothing that provides the best of all human emotions and endeavors like sports competition. Within the universes of MUSIC, COMEDY and SPORTS is a place where all participants have to follow the same rules of the game….from the fans to the athletes, trainers, managers, coaches, nutritionists, therapists, doctors, judges, referees, team owners and so on in between.
I hope that the cornucopia of stories stemming from bits and pieces of memories picked up by Bone Daddy in places he visited all over the world while compiling this collection….in hopes that the content will stimulate similar memories in my visitors to the site. Bone Daddy was such a unique HUMAN that I made up Sportsphile to describe him. He has passionately loved, lived and breathed sports his entire life…..and since he likes the way I write…..he asked me to write about his experiences surrounding those events he has attended over the past six (6) decades…using my own style and words like Sportsphile. He asked me to tell as many of the stories that surrounded the times, places and events that he had attended while giving a good understanding of what it took just to acquire the vast amount of content which will all eventually be presented within this site herewith. Dang folks….it took him over 60 years to compile it all…so I have literally 1000’s of stories to tell…and God Dog knows I’ve heard them all more than once. So, L E’s Stories section of the web page will be a compilation of my finest works as a true Sportsphile raconteur. This is my gift to Bone Daddy and the world….as I will continue to post new stories, pictures and videos until I have no more to share.
I strongly suggest that you read my Dog Philosophy and Dog Commentary pieces when they appear…cuz even though I am small in stature…I am “un grandote” in food for thought for all you HUMANS.
Also, I intend on not only finding….but also interconnecting any and al Sportsphiles out there…cuz we know there are “tons and tons of Sportsphiles” out there…..so, I am going to come up with a “qualifying exam” so when another possible Sportsphile shows up….that person can take our “Imasportsphile Exam” to see if they are indeed qualified to go by the moniker ImaSportsphile….and if so, we will be happily willing to post pictures of their ImaSportsphile collection of photos, memorabilia and videos here on our site….for I am really interested in any and all the stories surrounding your love of sports…..for who knows….you just might be able to say…..Ima Sportsphile !!!!
Why Humans Love Sports + Why Dogs Are Man’s Best Friend Quite honestly, although I was at BD’s side for every game and every sports program that he watched over the past 112 dog years that I’ve been with him…..which adds up to thousands of games…..it has only been within the last couple of years…Details
DOG COMMENTARY: Bone Daddy and I were watching the World Series Game 4 the evening of Halloween night, October 31, 2010….when during the opening ceremonies the network cameramen were focusing their lenses while panning the crowd of those fans who had come to the game in their Halloween costumes. Bone Daddy commented that for Halloween…all…Details
