** Only 82 degrees this morning as I left for work. Kept the top down on the drive home as it was only 95. Am I the only one that drives with the top down when it is that hot? Saw a lot of convertibles with the tops and windows up, no doubt with the AC blasting. Pussies!
** So if Fidel Castro dies, will all the Cubans in Miami that have been celebrating in the street go back to the island? If not, why are they celebrating? That is like bragging that your high school football team beat their rival and you haven't been to a game in 20 years.
** So Mel Gibson got drunk, busted for DUI, and made some bad comments. And everyone has their undies in a bunch. People, he is just an actor! It is not like he is the governor. Actors are not and should not be considered role models. If you don't like what he did/said, don't buy his movies. Simple as that.
** Brett Favre has been taken to task for some comments he made. Most Packer fans are probably pumped up for this season because Favre claims the Packers have more talent on this team than any other he has been on. He must be back on the Vicadin to make a comment like that. The guys on PTI had a good point to make on this comment. They point out that the talent level isn't near what they had in the Super Bowl years. Maybe Favre is just slower and the younger players faster than what he is accustomed to. So it isn't the team is better, it is that Favre just isn't as good. Oh yeah, he threw like 5 picks in camp yesterday. Doh!
** I enjoyed a nice cold Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat last night (see I take my own advice) after playing some basically break even poker. Getting no where fast lately playing. Not winning but not losing. Something has to change for the better there.
** The Milwaukee Admirals changed their logo yesterday to the pirate looking think on the left. Is it me or does it look like some cheap graphic from the old Atari 2600? The color scheme of black and teal? Ugly! Usually when you make a logo change, it is for the better. This one certainly got worse.
Plus, "Never Say Die"??? It is a skull. It is dead. Who is the marketing genius who came up with this one? Why is one eye bigger than the other? Was this a pirate that got beat up a lot? Or was it retarded?
** Being the glutton for punishment that I am, I watched Rock Star again last night. I think part of it is that I am waiting to hear someone sing some hard rock/heavy metal just once. Just once, that is all I am asking for. Instead, I watched a bunch of bad songs, but got to hear the people get ripped on. That was worth it.
** What am I thinking right now? Yeah, I could use a drink. Long day of work ahead, more stuff to do tonight. Still need to figure out what I am doing this weekend.
