I had my ass handed to my on a silver platter. I will have cole slaw and fries with that. I lost 83-48. It was all because of matchups. My players had harder matchups compared to the Krushers. We will have a rematch in week 10. The Intimidators look to bounce back against an 0-3 team. It would be nice to hand my ex-boss his fourth loss of the season. He gloated when he whooped on me the past two seasons. Time for payback.
A Duke family of basketball supporters headed out one Saturday to shop for the youngest boy's birthday. While in the sports shop the son picks up a Kentucky jersey and says to his older sister, "I've decided to become a Wildcat fan and I would like this Kentucky jersey for my birthday".
His big sister is outraged by this and promptly whacks him round the head and says, "Go talk to mother".
Off goes the little lad with the jersey in hand and finds his mother. "Mom?" "Yes son?" "I've decided I'm going to be a Wildcat fan and I would like this jersey for my birthday". The mother is outraged at this, promptly whacks him around the head and says, "Go talk to your father!"
Off he goes with the Kentucky jersey in hand and finds his father. "Dad?" "Yes son?" "I've decided I'm going to be a Wildcat fan and I would like this jersey for my birthday". The father is outraged and promptly whacks his son around the head and says, "No son of mine is ever going to be seen in THAT!" About half an hour later they're all back in the car and heading towards home.
The father turns to his son and says "Son, I hope you've learned something today?" The son says, "Yes, Dad, I have." "Good son, what is it?" The son replies, "I've only been a Kentucky fan for an hour and I already hate you Duke bastards."
With a totally dominating performance, I won my fantasy football game 71-43. There is only three undefeated teams left in the league. Next week we take on Kaiser's Krushers. I am not going to take this team easy. I am favored already by 11. Should be an interesting game. 3-0 would be a nice way to start the season.
With the Chase finally beginning with next week's race at New Hampshire, I just want to put out (again) that I am pulling for Tony Stewart. All five of Roush's cars will be out there, this is going to be a tough challenge. GO TONY!!!
1. 20 - Tony Stewart - 5050 - Will hold on to the lead and win a second championship 2. 16 - Greg Biffle - 5045 - Good charge at the end of the regular season 3. 2 - Rusty Wallace - 5040 - Rusty's Last Call, could a championship be served with that? 4. 48 - Jimmie Johnson - 5035 - JACKASS 5. 97 - Kurt Busch - 5030 - The Ferret-brother will not repeat 6. 6 - Mark Martin - 5025 - Would be nice to see him get one before he retires...NEXT YEAR 7. 19 - Jeremy Marfield - 5020 - Hey Jer-e-my! 8. 99 - Carl Edwards - 5015 - Can't wait to see him land on his head one of these times 8. 17 - Matt Kenseth - 5015 - Ok, you kept Gordan out, time to hit the wall 10. 12 - Ryan Newman - 5005 - Same as Kenseth, maybe Jarrett can help you with that
After the conclusion of Sunday's games, KYI won their season opener 36-28. There is a still a long season to go. There may be a few changes to the team come later this week. Look for Kyle Boller to be cut. The problem will come with finding a decent QB to use for a back up (ie Favre's bye week). Speaking of Favre, hopefully this week was an off week. May be dressing more than four receivers could help. How can you have and depth/rotation with only four WRs in GB?
They just can't leave well enough alone. The greatest man in bicycle racing retires and the French want to piss him off. This once again shows how dumb they can be. Finally someone from France or even that, another county, could have a chance to win the tour. So what do they do? Attack him! Put a black spot on his legacy! How dare they? Now he might come out of retirement to get his eighth Tour in a row and REVENGE. You all know me, I like the number 8.
With the passing of Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, the Katrina Relief story gets to stop at a rest stop. This is really big news because now GWB gets to name two Court Justices within a year's time. The battle for John Roberts will be very interesting with another appointment around the corner and possibly a third before the end of Bush's term. I am sure John Roberts will get through, no problem. This next one, I am sure, will be considered an "extreme circumstance" to Democrats. It will be extreme because they are loosing more grip of the government. I wonder what psycho-babble will come flying out from the left.
I have to say, President Bush has a huge plate. The war in Iraq, the war on terror, the confirmation of John Roberts, selecting another Justice, Sheehan (but I think Bush is done with her), and finally Katrina.
New Orleans is definitly going to take some time, a long time. New Orleans will be up and running efficiently by the time Bush it out of office. He will go down in history known for many things. Just take a look at the small list above.
Unfortunately, Mayor "I don't give a fuck" and Govornor "Oh, was I supposed to do something?" did very little for the people of the New Orleans area. It takes a person that will go the extra mile. GWB has started the clean up of someone else's mess. Actually looking back on past Natural Disasters, he about right on time for federal response.
I have read a lot on the internet the past couple of days. I know hind sight is 20/20, but there was so much that they could have done.
When they tell you that is a Manditory Evacuation, that means...
You have about one hour to get as many belongings that you can fit in one duffle bag (one bag per person). A bus is sent to each block to fill up with CIVILIANS (you know, the people that the mayor and govornor are sworn to protect?).
There are many cities that would be able to shelter all of these people. If you have common sense, I don't need to list all of the types of buildings that could be used as a sleep over (that is what the Superdome was intended to be). This way they are not in the crosshairs.
There was plenty of time to evacuate the entire city. There would have not been one death, unless it was natural causes. How can that mayor sleep at night, knowing he had all the resources to save so many lives?
I cannot believe it is now Thursday and Nascar has not fined Dale Jarrett for causing an intentional caution. That is against Nascar rules.
Section 12-4 (N)of the 2005 Nextel Cup Rulebook says, "Any driver who in the judgment of NASCAR officials intentionally causes or attempts to cause a caution condition by stopping or spinning out or any other action [shall suffer]: a fine, and/or loss of points, and/or loss of finishing.
I am not a Ryan Newman fan, but what he did was not intentional. What Jarrett did was. Going into turn three, he slowed down so Newman would go high. When they got into the middle of the turn, Jarrett turn RIGHT to clip Newman's back fender spinning both of them. It also gave Kevin Harvick a DNF.
I remember a race when JR was loosing laps and spun out going into a turn with no one around him. He was slapped with a $10,000 fine. Why aren't the same rules applied here? Was it because Jarrett is a past champion? No, that can't be it. SR used to get away with all the time. Sorry Mr. Jarrett, the bad boy image doesn't work for you. There is one other scenario. Maybe Nascar is saying that the two lap penalty was enough. Come on Nascar. Obviously you were saying that wreck was intentional. So next time you want you attempt to put your balls on the table and penalize a driver to taking out another in retaliation, how about holding that driver until the other driver's car is repaired, then accessing the two lap penalty?
