Back in Black

Did everyone hear the boo-birds after the first series last night? and then after the Rams TD it must have been deafening.. What a great way to introduce the new look offense to the nation (3 f'in field goals).. What an absolute embarrassment!! and people wonder why I'm trying to raise David to be a Packers fan!!

Last game

Time to go to the old ball park for my last lunch time hooky session.. Zito v Maroth.. Lets hope Maroth can keep the ball in the park today (unlike Bonderman last night)
-- OUT

update: bottom 9th, A's 11 - Tigers 1... OUCH. and of course the only run was scored after we left.. I was commenting to a co-worker 'the least they could have done is give Zito a no hitter to make it exciting'.. oh well, off to my exit interview..

Wings Ink Howard

Detroit signs blue-chip netminder to entry level contract..
The Wings signed GT Jimmy Howard to an entry level contract today. Howard comes to the wings from UMaine after appearing in 82 games with an impressive 1.84GAA and pitching a school record 15 shutouts.
This is the future for the wings in net.. Now I just wish they would have let him finish his collegiate career at UMaine and play for another national title.. Instead Jimmy Ho is going to play back up to Joey MacDonald on a bad Grand Rapids Griffins team before MAYBE starting in GR next year..
Another disappointing decision made by Kenny H

Google Talk

A couple days after launching the Google Desktop Search2 in beta (I am using now and its very cool - http://blog.searchenginewatch.com/blog/050822-070418) Google has announced their new IM service called Google Talk.. The announcement was made yesterday and it went live today. Like its sisters, Desktop Search 2 and gmail, Google Talk is currently and will be for the foreseeable future in beta..
2 main upsides: using voice to talk on IM and the use of Jabber technology (which allows GTalk to connect with established IM services like AOL's ICQ and I will assume in the future, Trillian).. I have it downloaded and running here at work.. I am Aheer22. sign up so I can test this bad boy!!

If the NCAA thinks that FSU's relationship with the Seminole Indian tribe is a positive one, they had best look into there decision regarding my beloved chip's!!

hockey news:
As far as the OLN Broadcast Team goes, many names are currently getting thrown around. I have heard Bill Clement will be a part of it for certain and that Barry Melrose is a good possibility as well. The
play-by-play positions are being widely speculated on. Mike "Doc" Emrick, who is one of the best people in hockey, looks to be the guy who will cover the Monday Night Games (OLN's Hockey Night in America). For the other OLN games the play-by-play guys are still being determined.

and yet another marketing snafu by the NHL.. "monday night in america'!!?? yeah thats smart.. lets go head to head with americas top rated prime time show (sports or not) Monday Night Football..

WHAT is THAT!!???

to the left you see the new Canadian Olympic jersey made by Nike.. (long pause).. WHAT THE HELL!!??? it looks like dude is wearing his younger brothers jersey.. this is supposed to make players FASTER, COOLER and LIGHTER!!!??? all I can say is "wwhhhaaaaaaaaa, huh"? this is hockey, not flippin cycling. that has got to be the GAYEST look I have ever seen.. the socks aren't much better.. I've seen better designs in the EPL.. seriously.. this is why Nike does not have an NHL contract.. the R&D cost is reported at 6 figures.. hell, give me the six figures and I'll have my 2 year old come up with a better jersey.. reports also say the replica will cost around $100 for fans..
Maybe they made a mistake.. Maybe they delivered the women's team jerseys?



just found this.. this site will give you an alternate login to sites that make you register to view content (ie Miami Herald, or other newspapers and magazines)... try it, you'll like it..

I also just discovered that its works with annoying photo sharing sites that MY FAMILY insists on using instead of the Flikr account I set up for them..
