New treat: Low-carb doggie ice cream
WHL finals, baby!
Your 20 something years old and playing in the NFL. Your considered a very good player and it looks like your going to get a nice payday when your current contract runs out. Then one day, Sept 11,2001... The World Trade Towers are attacked by terrorists. Everything you believe in comes crashing down on you. You make up your mind right there and then you are going to serve your country and become an Army Ranger. You pass up a 3.6 million dollar offer to play another year for the Arizona Cardinals.
Typically I'm not one who forward jokes and stuff around the internet, but I thought this one was too funny to pass up:
This e-mail just came down from my corporate office. Be wary of fake e-mails & scams!
Ok all you low-carb freaks, the New coca-Cola product C2 is here. That's right, A low-carb Coke! A Coca-Cola spokesman would not give specific dates for the roll-out of the new drink, but told Reuters it would appear in stores across the United States before the planned late summer launch of Pepsi Edge, PepsiCo Inc.'s low calorie cola.
Truely a sad story here: BRICK, New Jersey (AP) -- A woman gave birth in the back of a car on the way to a hospital, but the vehicle then left the road and struck a utility pole, killing her husband. The newborn boy was in critical condition Thursday, and the mother, 22-year-old Atara Sasoon, was listed as fair.
Interesting story about the issue of "color" in the inner circles of the two presidential hopefuls...it may surprise you to know that: Seizing on the nation's diversity -- the country is almost one-third non-white -- Bush has appointed African-Americans, Asians, Latinos and women to senior and non-stereotypical roles: Secretary of State, national security adviser, Transportation Secretary, White House Counsel.
Marysville's NASCAR dreams inch closer: Marysville and Snohomish County officials announced Tuesday that two Marysville-area sites are the front-runners in the race to land a National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing track.
I don't want to hear about Steroids. I don't want to hear about "performance enhancing drugs." Until there is absolute proof of wrongdoing, Barry Bonds deserves our respect. It doesn't matter if he is a nice guy. He's not paid to be a nice guy. It doesn't matter if he is "media-friendly," he's not paid to be warm and fuzzy to the media. Barry Bonds is played to hit the baseball & the fact is he does that better than anyone in my lifetime. As a Dodger fan I hate him. As a baseball fan I beleive he is the greatest player I have ever seen play the game.
In just another amazing story of the human survival instinct, A 5-year-old girl is in stable condition Wednesday, a day after she was discovered by highway workers near the scene of a car crash that killed her mother about 10 days ago, according to police and hospital officials. According to this story on cnn.com, Ruby Bustamante survived by drinking Gatorade and eating dried noodles found in the car, according to family members.
There's a lot of talk lately about misery indexes. Jim Caple on ESPN.com issues his own misery index of all the Major League Baseball teams. What it says about my beloved Dodgers is so true :( ....And he absolutely nails the Mariners.
By the way, the British man I wrote about a couple days ago who sold everything to put it all on the line on one spin of the roulette wheel...he won! He Bet it all on RED and took home $270K.
Gawd what I wouldn't give to be a sportswriter. I often wonder what would have happened had I actually got a job out of college in the field in which I earned my degree (Journalism). you think it's too late?
Silvertips Take Out Giants in Second Round:
Make your voice heard. To defend the definition of marriage & defend the family structure. At least that's the message in this "MayDay For Marriage" flyer sent to me this past weekend. flyer_color.pdf
As if she really needed it: Jennifer Lopez's mom won 2.4 million dollars on a $3 bet at a slot machine in Atlantic City at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Guadalupe Lopez, 58, hit it big off a $3 bet on a "Wheel of Fortune" slot machine
Putting it all on the line. A British man has sold all his possessions, including his clothes, to come up with about 138K to bet on one spin of the roulette wheel. He plans to bet either Red or Black so he comes out with truely, Double or Nothing!
I tried this and it really works. It is such a good deal for baseball fans, I just can't beleive it. I first heard about it from reading a post by an old friend of mine David at the USS Mariner Blog. I'm going to post his article here:
A few weeks ago I wrote about the Everett Silvertips...The expansion WHL hockey team I have season tickets to. Well, they made it through the first round of the playoffs, sweeping the Spokane Chiefs. They begam the first expansion team in the WHL to ever win a playoff series in this year of many firsts and mosts. the team begins it's second round in Canada...home of the Vancouver Giants. According to the Vancouver Sun:
Research at the University of California, San Diego indicates that when people pick a dog, they look for one that, at some level, bears some resemblance to them. And when they get a purebred dog, they get what they want.
How can the smart be so stupid? A harvard prefessor, who swindled friends and collegues out of $600,000, fell for the SPAM e-mail about the nigerian bank con and lost all the money he had taken. Sometimes, there is justice!
At some point you just have to question the morality left in America. A man in San Diego pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and will spend a year in jail because he broke into the wrong house. You see, he was supposed to break into the house of a woman he met online in a "rape fantasy" chat room. He was acting on the information he was provided when he broke into the wrong house. How did he realize he was in the wrong place? The woman didn't own a computer!
So what to do with $239 million. One month after the drawing of the winning numbers, a retired truck driver has come forward to claim sole-possession of the prize. This begs the question...What were you doing for the past month? According to the truck driver of the payout "It didn't excite me all that much. It's no big thing to me." Well heck, since it is no big deal....I'll take it off your hands! The winner would be allowed to take the $239 million in 26 annual payments of $9.19 million before taxes or a lump sum of $141.5 million before taxes. GULP!
