Goodbye 2005

I have to say the big upside to this past year was finally being able to buy a house. 2006 should be better now that my van is paid off. Did that last week before Christmas. That was my Christmas present to myself and my wife. So to all that have dropped by to my blog over the past year, I hope you have a safe and healthy New Year.

Happy New Year!!!

This video is funny

This is a very funny video I saw on Ifilm. It tells what the Internet is really for.

Chris Henry charged with STUPIDITY

Well, it looks as if Bengals WR Chris Henry is on Coach Lewis's shit list. What a stupid thing to do!? He was pulled over on Philadelphia in Covington, KY (which is about 5 minutes from down town). He was pulled over for speeding. This area is residential. Bogus charge. Just looking for a reason to pull him over. He was also charged with expired tags, expired driver's license, and no proof of insurance. The tags were enough to pull him over anyway. I got busted a few years back for mine being 3 months past due. The cop let me go, because I was on my way to work. He could have had me towed, but let me go, because I was going to take care of it after work. I work 3rd at the time.

When the police approached the car, the smelled mary jay. There were stems in the ash tray. When the searched him, he had two bags in his shoe. This all totals up to STUPIDITY. You are on one of the best teams in the league, if not THE BEST. Doing things like this is just plain dumb. Don't do stuff like this during the season. We don't need to be reminded of the Bungals. That was a team that would do stupid things to destroy the team. Get your head on straight and cleaned up. I hope Marvin benches your ass this week. Kelly Washington can fill in this week. Another thing, you have MONEY. I am sure you could have that stuff delivered. Duh, you can't afford that chance of getting busted. Oops, too late for that one. DEE DEE DEE!!!

You could have a great career here in Cincinnati. We just don't need that in the team chemistry. Look at Darrell Russell. He chose the drug route and that ended in a deadly crash. I don't think you want that ending. You are here for a ring. You can help make that happen. Just drop the pipe and catch the ball. Marvin said Jump Higher, not Get Higher.

Waiting for next season

My team just didn't perform this week. I lost 81-36. The Krushers always have a big week when I play him. I will need to build a team around Chad Johnson next year to try to beat him. That will be the only player I keep off this team. We are only allowed one. He is the best I've got. The championship is Krushers vs Guts.

Still Healing

The Friday after Thanksgiving, I got off early from work. I got home early enough for lunch, so I decided to take the family out to Wendy's.

When we were leaving, I opened the passenger door on the van. Then I turned to open the sliding door for the kids to get in. All of a sudden, BAM!!! The passenger door slammed shut on my middle finger. This was all happened while my wife was getting in on the driver's side. She reached over and tried to open the door. As she did, I pulled. Guess what? I was still stuck, because the door had locked when it closed. She then unlocked the door and then opened the door. I started jumping up and down and screaming my head off. F**k did it hurt.

The way the tip of my finger swelled up, I thought it was broke. The hospital was just up the road, so Mrs. B took me to the hospital to make sure everything was ok. While checking my vitals, I realized I needed my tetnis shot (only 3 yrs late). Three x-rays showed every was intact. I got my shot. It wasn't too bad. The needles have gotten smaller in 13 years. The nurse put a protective plastic splint on my finger to try to prevent me from banging it into things.

The next day, all under the nail was bruised. A couple of days later, the bruising was disappearing, but there was tremendous pressure. I had to take a pair of scissors and scrap a hole through my nail. No nerves in bone, so it didn't hurt. I felt it when I got through though. After that, I put a needle in the little hole to ream it out to make it bigger. This allowed the fluid build up in the damaged area to start draining. The next day, it also started draining from back by the cuticle. Everyonce in a while when the pressure starting building again, all I had to do was press down on the nail and more fluid would flow. Believe me, it felt so much better after that.

This past Monday, I was able to get the nail off. This has really allowed some further healing and less swelling. It is almost back to normal size. Now I have to wait to see if a new nail will grow back. I hope so. I don't want to tell that story the rest of my life. If it does grow back, it will probably grow in gimped for a while. It will take some time to reshape. Below is what it looked like the first day and now. I didn't get any pictures of it in between. Sorry, I was trying to keep it clean so it wouldn't get infected.

If this is the kind of stuff that happens when you leave work early, let me work overtime.

The Playoffs

I finally made it to the playoffs in my third year of fantasy football (actually playing for money). My team was matched up against a division rival, who I lost to twice during the regular season.

After the second set of games, I was up 27-7. Thank you Miami for hammering away at the Bills Defense on a route to a come back win. The Bills ended up only scoring one point even with their bonuses.

My main concern with the Sunday night game was that ShadowKahn still had LT to play. He racked up 29 points against me last week. He also owns the SD Kicker Nate Kaeding, to add the extra points to LT's TDs. Another key factor was him having Kerry Collins against my WRs of Moss and Porter. Wide Receivers rack up yardage points faster than Quarterback's passing yardage.

Early in the Oakland/San Diego game, there was a key goalline stop against LT when the score of my game was 29-24. That had to be a key moment in this matchup. I would have been behind worrying, needing Westbrook to have a good night. As long as he doesn't come out and fumble and gets some yardage, my team will win. I am up now 32-31.

Next week, I go up against a conference opponent and good friend, Kaiser's Krushers (won 61-55). Looks like I have my work cut out for me again. I lost to him twice during the regular season.

In the other conference, Guts and Glory cruised to a mighty defeat of 76-42. The Big Kahunas upset the Nightmares 44-14.
