It was a pretty good game as the Rock came back from behind.

Other than that it was a pretty good time sampling diferent Rickard's brands. For the most part I'm a fan of Rickard's Red, but I tried their White and India Pale Ale. Their White was descent but their IPA was really lacking in flavor. If I would call it anything it would be IPA "Light" since it only gave lip service to that type of beverage.

But other than that I didn't do anything in TO, I just basically hoped back in the car since my Uncle was driving. One of these days I'm just going to book myself a hotel and make a long weekend out of it this summer.

How to wast time and money

This is what was going through my head as I was leaving the Ralph around 4:30PM today


Kickoff!

After the game, these drunk ass people responded to the challenge of "Do the Hill!!!"

Now the NFL has a similar introduction like a Monday Night wrasslin' show

My friend from D.C. Says hot dog vendors down there are not this hot by any stretch of the imagination.

The saddest part of the game was not that they lost, but the 1st and only TD of the game was scored on the Very First possession for either team, with SF going down to score after getting the ball after the coin toss. Seriously, if I could get my money back I would. Playoffs??? Ha, Ha, Ha!

Hateriots Apology

Apology

On Feb. 2, 2008, the Boston Herald reported that a member of the New England Patriots [team stats]' video staff taped the St. Louis Rams' walkthrough on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI. While the Boston Herald based its Feb. 2, 2008, report on sources that it believed to be credible, we now know that this report was false, and that no tape of the walkthrough ever existed.

Prior to the publication of its Feb. 2, 2008, article, the Boston Herald neither possessed nor viewed a tape of the Rams' walkthrough before Super Bowl XXXVI, nor did we speak to anyone who had. We should not have published the allegation in the absence of firmer verification.

The Boston Herald regrets the damage done to the team by publication of the allegation, and sincerely apologizes to its readers and to the New England Patriots [team stats]' owners, players, employees and fans for our error.



Seriously, can we move on with things now? I think that the damage has been done when they lost. Having that hanging over their head with the potential of a congressional investigation most likely distracted them enough were they lost the big game. They lost a draft pick & the big game, that's punishment enough. So they taped the lousy Bills, Browns, Chargers, Chargers [Cheerleaders] and Jets. They really gained a competive advantage from checking out hotties from SoCal do leg kicks.

I just love how these tools on Sports Talk Radio are calling in saying that it is an NFL Conspiracy to protect their product and hence bottom line. These must be the losers that sleep with aluminum foil helmets at night so the government won't read their thoughts. Better yet the egos of former players or fans that just can't stomach that someone is better, smarter and more wealthier than they are. So they attempt to rationalize it through some crazy conspiracy theory.

Personally I am not a Pats fan. I really don't care about them personally. All I wonder is what would have these overweight slobs be saying if say Dick Jouron was caught doing something & the Bills 1st round pick was taken away by the league? The whole "The world is trying to F**k Buffalo" paranoia that overtakes this area would just be freaking insane.

In the end maybe it's just me and my ego isn't out of whack. There are people in this world that are better, smarter, stronger and richer than I am. If someone went to an Ivy league school, drives a BMW, has a hot 6' 100 lb blonde trophy S.O. and a ton of $; I don't secretly begrudge him. I am honest happy for him or her given the circumstances. But for the typical male where status is the measuring standard and everything, you can get his kind of poisonous envy that just has taken a life of it's own for the last 6 years.

Derby Bet

Well I have to get some kind of action in this race. The rain just put a damper on my plans to go to Fort Erie to watch the race. While in all actuality I just didn't want to sit there all afternoon & "unibet" every race track in North America, blowing money before the big race.

So what I just did was bet $50 on the favorite Big Brown to "Show" or place 1st, 2nd or 3rd. I won't win much if it comes in, but it's something to focus on during the run for the roses. The big reason why I'm betting on him is his jockey, Kent Desormeaux.

NHL Playoffs

It does feel kind of empty around here without Buffalo or Toronto in the playoffs. Just for some reason I needed my fix, so I stopped by Buffalo Wild Wings after work tonight to catch some of the Boston/Montreal game. It was pretty cool to see Tim Thomas make his first NHL Playoff start. Ok, it was just being able to see a guy 1 year older than me, my height and weight make his first NHL Playoff start. Too bad that they lost 4-1 but the score did not do his effort any justice.

I guess my the teams that I am actually going to be pulling for are the Washington Capitals, since I did immerse myself into their media when I was down there for a week not too long ago. Also to stay true to my NHL Fantasy team I'm going to go with Calgary in the west, Jerome Iginla did wonders for me this year. Plus it was the team that I watched most often this year in a weird way. For them most part I would catch the nightcap from the west coast on CBC Hockey Night in Canada while I was out somewhere. Being out at a place say like Frizzy's on a Saturday night and watching a live sporting event is just tits ;-) I'm the weird guy that loves it when the baseball playoffs go 14 innings and the game gets decided at 2:20 am!

But Springtime & the NHL Playoffs, it brings a smile to my face...

My Redneck Secret

It's finally here. The signal that spring will come eventually, the start of the NASCAR Season. Really it started last weekend when I actually fell asleep to the Rolex 24 hour race @ Daytona. I had a small ego boost when Mazda won the GT division with their RX-8.

So I'm going to watch the race this afternoon. With the freeview of Hotpass I can watch an isolation cam of Stewart, Earnhardt Jr, Gordon & Harvick.

I've secretely been into racing for about 10 years now. I started out just watching just the "open wheel" cars such as Indy/Champ cars and Formula One. Then for some reason I just got hooked on the popular trend. Having all the good open wheel drivers go over the Nascar helped as well. Especially my driver Tony Stewart who started off in the IRL and has not looked back since. It is kind of scary that this year's Daytona 500 is going to have more former Indy 500 winners starting than the Actually Indy 500 will in May. It just shows how the landscape has changed.

So Yea, that's what I'm going to be doing for the next few hours, watching 43 cars make left hand turns all afternoon...It is the biggest Spectator sport hands down & actually you can make the case that it bumped hockey out of it's place in the "4 Major Pro Sports" just on TV Revenue alone. So Yea I have been sucked in to the phenomena that is NASCAR. Although I did like it back in the day when the sponsors were extremely potent cigarettes [Winston] & low value beer [Busch]; instead of Cellular Phones [Sprint/Nextel] and Insurance[Nationwide]

The other story line is the arrival of Toyota as a competitive
manufacturer. Last year they were almost kicked out for "cheating" but to be honest it was more of a xenophobic thing than anything else & them not knowing the rules. Now Toyota won the Camping World 300 yesterday when Tony Stewart led from Pole to Finish. I just find it ironic as GM tries to shed the last vestiges of the ultimate blue collar job with it's latest buy out package to close the gap on one of the biggest corporate losses last quarter. While at the same time they are losing ground not only in market share in the USA, but the one showcase for it's products where Chevys once dominated.

In all Go #20 in your Joe Gibbs Toyota!!!
