I've Been Tagged...

So I've been tagged for another little game...I often act annoyed by these, but I secretly love them...That's why I keep doing them...This one comes from ~P~ at

I have been tagged to share 6 unimportant things about me...What the hell!

1. I rub one out everyday...Even if Mrs. Beeze gives it up...I still find time to squeeze one off...I enjoy my me time!

2. I liked Van Halen with Sammy Hagar more then David Lee Roth...Gary Cherone wasn't awful...But didn't have the charism...And he seemed gay on stage...Eddie doesn't let that sh!t fly!

3. I often have angry thoughts...Thoughts about punching my boss, or fliiping over peoples table as they eat...These thoughts make me laugh...Which I think is what keeps me from actually knocking somebody the f*ck out...And keeps me out of jail!

4. I often say change is good...And I'd like to change things in my life...Example: i have lived in the Cleveland area my entire life...I always say how it sucks, and I want to move...I'd love to live in Boston...But that same though scares the hell out of me...I hate change!

5. I think organized religion seriously f*cked up....Yet somehow, I believe there is a God...Or some higher power responsible for this world...And I'm sure he laughs at us often!

6. My freshmen year of high school I learned an important lesson...As I fell from a catwalk, 20 feet above a stage...I realized, I'm not afraid of hieghts...I'm afraid of hitting the ground...As most things in my life I found a laugh in it all...A guy a few years older that I looked up to immediately said..."Oh get up you pussy! Quit acting like you just fell 20 feet!"

I'm gonn a throw in a bonus one...

7. I love porn!

Here's the rules....

1.) Put the link of the person who tagged you on your blog..
2.) Write the rules
3.) Mention 6 things or habits of no real importance about you.

That's it...

Later, The Beeze.

Monday Moaning

Another weekend has come and gone...Just as my hangover has come and gone...The Beeze needs to hop on the wagon...Gotta get my shit together for D&T Baseball....Have to be able to back up all my shit talking...

This week I'm gonna mix it up...I'm gonna start with the Notre Dame Hockey News....

Friday the Irish took on Northern Michigan in the CCHA playoffs...Sophomore Ben Ryan scored 1 minute left in the game to give the Fighting Irish a 2-1 victory...Kyle Lawson had the other Irish goal...Goalie Jordan Pearce made 21 saves in the victory...

This sent Notre Dame to the Championship game against rival Michigan...I'm not gonna lie...My c*ck was hard for this one...(it's a joke)...

After two periods the Wolverines were up 2-1...But the Irish said f*ck that sh!t...

They came back strong in the third and put up 4 goals to win their second CCHA Championship in three years....The Goal scores for the Irish were...Billy Maday, Calle Ridderwall with 2, Ben Ryan, and Christiaan Minella...Pearce made 28 saves in the win...

Four Notre Dame players were named to the all-tournament team...Defensman Ian Cole...Forwards Calle Ridderwall, and Ben Ryan....And Goalie Jordan Pearce...Pearce was also named the Tournament MVP...
The Irish have been selected as the #1 seed in the Grand Dapids Regional of the NCAA Tournament...Their first game will be against Bemidji State on March 28th at 7:30 PM...
Now I have some sad news for New York Rangers fans like myself....Former Ranger, Walt Poddubny died this weekend at age 49...

Rest in Peace Walt...

Now let's get to the big joke that has had the You Gab Sports gang laughing all week....Now I always fill out some March Madness Brackets every year...A couple through a bar I go to...Some here some there...And I traditionally suck...This year the Gab did a Bracket Challenge...So what the hell! Who's kickin' ass...That's right...The Beeze...Who had Cleveland State winning their first round game against Wake Forest...The Beeze....

Who, in the confusion of doing too many brackets at once...And an alcoholic haze, forgot to put in their Final Four teams....That's right...The Beeze!

Everyone Point and Laugh!
Now I'm getting off of the sports topics...As I often do...I'm dedicating this week's Monday Moaning to my wife...That's right...This one is for Mrs. Beeze...
Friday night the wife went out with the girls after work...They've all been working like crazy and needed to get out...The Mrs. needed bad...She doesn't get out much between work, and trying to get some quality time with the kids...Then she has me constantly trying to have sex with her...Seriously...I'm all over her, all the time!
She had a great time, and by the drunken calls her friends kept making to me, they seemed to be having a great time also...When she came home though I decided to take a sh!t all over her good time...I jump on her case for driving...Especially because I offered to pick them up if they needed...That and because she use to get on my case for drinking and driving...So then the sh!t hit the fan...It was a quality fight...She cried, so I felt I had won...But as I walked away hearing her cry...I realized I'm about to lose...Nothing hurts more then hearing someone you love cry...
I went back in and held her...We apologized to each other...Then we started to laugh...Why? Because Mrs. Beeze said..."I love you...You F**king Idiot!" It was the best thing I had heard since I realized I screwed up my bracket...We continued to talk about everything and laugh...The we had some good old fashioned make up sex...Maybe I did win!
That's how I know she's perfect for me...We can yell and scream and say mean sh!t to each other, and still find a way to laugh...
I don't know how I tricked this woman into falling for me, and putting up with me, and having my children...Maybe this helped....
A divorced friend reminded Saturday, that I am truly lucky...I really am...Wow sorry if your not use to the Beeze being so Cheezey...
Thanks to the girls who went out with Mrs. Beeze...You're great friends...And thanks for trying to dye her hair red for me...Maybe one day!
That's it for now...Have a good week...
Later, The Beeze

Getting to Know Christian Hanson

Now right off the bat, people who don't follow hockey closely, or at least college hockey, ask...Is he related to the Hanson Brothers? (of Slap Shot fame) YES!

Notre Dame senior Christian Hanson is the son of Dave Hanson...Best know for his role in Slap Shot...Now just because your dad was a thumper doesn't mean you have to be...But Christian's 6-foot-4, 228 pound frame would initially make you think that...

When Hanson first came to Notre Dame he was a checker...In his time there he has improved in all areas of the game, and flourished under coach Jeff Jackson...Hanson, who is an alternate captain this season...Is an excellent two-way player...A solid face man...He's a strong forechecker who likes to use his size and reach to pester his opponents...He plays physical in the corners, and is strong in front of the net...Christian has shown an outstanding work ethic, and great determination...
This season in 34 games, the Notre Dame center has put up...16 goals...14 assists...for 30 points...He's a +10...with 6 power play goals...1 short handed goal...and 5 Game winners...
Another interesting thing about Hanson...His draft eligibility has expired...So when this season is done....Hopefully after a Fighting Irish National Championship...Hanson will be a free agent...

There are a few other college players in the same situation...The Hockey News points out University of Denver center Tyler Bozak...Who will have to that even at 5-foot-9, he can play with the big boys...Goaltenders Brad Thiessen from Northeastern, and Ben Scrivens from Cornell...But the big name on the list is Boston University defenseman Matt Gilroy...He's got NHL caliber hands, size, and skating ability...

I'm biased, but I'll take Hanson...I think he'll develop into a quality power forward...

Happy St. Patrick's Day...A History Lesson...

I'll start simply by saying Happy St. Patrick's Day...Get your green on...Find some place that is doing' kegs and eggs...And don't forget the corned beef and Guinness for lunch!

So what's the deal with this St. Patrick cat anyway...Well let's have a little history lesson...

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, and is one of the most well known figures in Christianity....His life remains a mystery....Most of the stories traditionally associated with St. Patrick including the famous account of him banishing all the snakes from Ireland...Even though there were no snakes...Are false, but have become well known because blarney....Or years, and years of exaggerated storytelling....No Irishman would ever do such a thing!

St. Patrick was born in Britain to wealthy parents near the end of the fourth century....It is believed to have died on March 17, around 460 A.D.....His father was a Christian deacon...It has been suggested that he probably took on the role because of tax incentives....There is no evidence that Patrick came from a religious family....At sixteen Patrick was taken prisoner by a group of Irish raiders while they were attacking his family's estate....They took him to Ireland where he was held captive for six years....There has been a dispute whether he was kept in County Antrim, or County Mayo...

He worked as a shepherd...afraid, and lonely he turned to his faith....And began dreaming about converting the Irish people to Christianity....

After six years as a prisoner, Patrick escaped....According to his writings...A voice, which he believed to be God's, spoke to him in a dream...Telling him it was time to leave Ireland....The stories say he walked 200 miles from County Mayo, to the Irish coast....Once back in Britain, Patrick reports that he experienced a second revelation....An angel tells him to return to Ireland as a missionary...He begins his religious training...After being ordained he is sent back to Ireland to minister to the Christians living there, and to convert the Irish...This is funny because it has often been said that St. Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland...

Most Irish practiced a nature based pagan religion....Having known their culture and language...Patrick chose to incorporate traditional rituals into his lessons of Christianity, instead of attempting to eradicate native Irish beliefs...The Irish were used to honoring their gods with fire...So Patrick used bonfires to celebrate Easter...The sun was a powerful Irish symbol...So he superimposed the sun onto the Christian cross...Creating what is now known as the Celtic Cross...
The Irish culture has always had a rich tradition of oral legend and myth....It is no surprise that the tales of St. Patrick, and his life have been exaggerated...

For me...Someone who has long questioned his faith...When I celebrate St. Patrick's...It's not so much about him...It's about family, and our heritage...And about those who struggled...Those who fought...And those who died...Many of them simply because they were Irish...

This is a little Graphic....

Monday Moaning

What a weekend....I'm surprised I even remeber much, if not any of it...The Rock & Roll is done...My ears have stopped buzzing, and well...So have I.

Lets start with Friday night...Got to dive...Dives are great...Lot of people there...Lot that I knew...That always freaks me out...How do ya fix that...BEER! JAGER! Good to go! We did a good set...The originals went over well...My acoustic set went well...The covers went well...Afterwards somebody said..."Wow that was really good. I never heard of some of those song!" While I thanked them for the compliment, I was also annoyed...Of course you hadn't heard some of those songs...Would I be playing here if you had? NO! Also, you're over 40 so you may not be hip to the Deftones...But I was polite and simply said..."Thanks, now you're better of for having geard them." What a dick! (me not him)

After that...well you know...I was playing rock star, so I had to have some rock star sex with Mrs. Beeze...Hey, when you're rockin' a solid Jager dick...You can't waste that sh!t....The morning after I was getting some dirty looks...I believe the one phrase I heard was..."I can't believe you had me doing that in my mothers bed...When she was right in the next room."

The Punishment was harsh...She went into work for awhile to get some OT...I had to take the kids to the park...Two kids, other peoples kids, hangover....Bad combo! Then the grocery store....

After that was a family party...BIG CRAZY IRISH PARTY..."Beeze play a couple songs!" The thought in my head was...'F*ck you drunks!' But who am I to judge...I just had 4 beers, 7 green jello shots, 7 orange jello shots, and a shot of my old friend Jameson....So I did a couple Irish tunes, and I broke off Sunday Bloody Sunday also...
The wife was tired...I was tired and ripped...The kids needed to get to bed...So we got outta there and went home...The Mrs. and kids were asleep by 8:30...I took a snooze...and checked out some porn...And I hated on the new Facebook home page...

I got to take the kids to the park again today...But then I got to go see The Watchmen....I really liked it...It dragged at some points, and there was some unnessary sh!t in it, but I think they did a good job with it...Plus it had a great soundtrack, and Malin Ackerman is f*cking hot!

Christ I haven't said a word about sports yet...

Let's start with the New York Rangers...F*CK WADE REDDEN!!! This guy blows...The Rangers lost Saturday to the hated Flyers 4-2...douchebag Redden was a big reason why...Not to take anything away from Martin Biron's 39 save performance....I know I beat on Redden, but look...I'm not alone....

BTW...The Manic Ranger does good stuff...Check him out!

Sunday things turned out a little better...The Rangers beat the Flyers 4-1, Thanks in large part to Sean Avery's two power play goals...

I was all geared up tonight for the You Gab Sports D & T Fantasy Baseball draft...Then I realized I got a little more time to get my sh!t together...Good thing since I was talking some smack...

It's bracket time...This is the rare time of the year that I actually pat attention to Basketball...I'm pulling for the Cleveland State Viking!!!

Next up...Notre Dame Hockey...The Irish took on Nebraska-Omaha this weekend in the CCHA playoffs...Friday night The Fighting Irish beat the Mavericks 5-0...The Goal scorers were...Calle Ridderwall, Ben Ryan, Billy Maday, Ryan Thang, and Ryan Guentzel...Jordan Pearce made 30 saves in the shutout victory...

Saturday night Jordan Pearce did it again...Making another 30 saves in a 1-0 Notre Dame victory...Justin White was the lone goal scorer...The Irish now move on to Joe Louis Arena, March 20-21, for the CCHA Playoff Title...

In other Notre Dame hockey news...The All-CCHA team was announced this week...Ian Cole earned 1st team honors...Erik Condra, Christian Hanson, and Kyle Lawson were named to the second team...Calle Ridderwall, and Jordan Pearce were given honorable mention...That's just bulsh!t...Pearce should have at least gotten 2nd team, if not 1st team...

Pearce was named as one of twelve candidates for the CCHA Scholastic Athlete of the Year Award...He also is a finalist for the RBC Financial Group CCHA Player of the Year

Irish coach Jeff Jackson is a finalist for CCHA Coach of the Year...

Kyle Lawson is up for the CCHA top defensive defensman...

Erik Condra is a finalist for the CCHA top defensive forward...

and Billy Maday is up for the CCHA Rookie of the Year Award...

That's it for me now...Have a good week...

One last thing....Tuesday is St. Patrick's Day...Have fun...Drink green beer...Find a Red headed gal and give her a kiss...And be safe...

Later, The Beeze.

Monday Moaning

That's another week down, and another week closer to St. Patrick's day...Some of you may not care about that...Piss off! I'm partying...And most of you non-Irish knuckle heads that dump on it, are the first to call off of work and get you Irish on for a day...So GO SCREW!!!
Moving on to sports...My weekend started with a fun little family outing Friday night to the Lake Erie Monsters hockey game...(dollar dog night)...They are the minor league affiliate for the Colorado Avalanche...They beat the Rochester Americans 4-3 in a good physical game...Monsters goalie Jason Bacashua is without a doubt the star of the team...

Another big hit was the mascot...Now The team nickname is the Monsters...So why the f*ck is there a big eagle walking around as the mascot...He was taunted all night by my kids who kept calling him..."Chicken" The dummy responded to...My son said "hey chicken!" and he came over and gave both my monsters five...Dolt!

Now there are two topics in sports I hate...There's more, but two in particular...T.O. and A-Rod...Two first class douches...But I'm gonna give them a minute of my time this week....First T. douche O. I can't believe the Buffalo Bills signed this guy...I hope they apologized in advance to Trent Edwards...Poor bastard is in for a rough year!-

Next...A-Douche...I really hope he recovers from that bad case of whatever the hell that cum dumpster Madonna gave him...I want to see him back on the field getting booed, and shitting the bed in key situations...

Lets talk some NHL...This past we we had the BIG trade deadline...Who were winners...
The Bruins adding Mark Recchi...He'll be a nice fit on either of the top two lines...Hell he's the winner...He went from a shit team to the Bruins...

I hate to say this...But the Penguins did well...Adding Bill Guerin fills a hole that has been there since they lost Ryan Malone...But even better was trading Ryan Whitney, and getting Chris Kunitz...Kunitz has had an immediate impact...

The Maple Leafs are trying to do their best at rebuilding...F*ck Burke!

The Columbus Blue Jackets finally weren't a seller....They Traded former #1 goalie Pascal LeClaire to Ottawa for forward Antoine Vermette...Vermette could possibly be that center that Rick Nash has been missing...The trade also showed the teams confidence in rookie goalie Steve Mason, who has been amazing this season....

Calgary made a big splash getting center Olli Jokinen, and defenseman Jordan Leopold....Jokinen, who it seems some team always wants to get rid of him will center the top line...Every year there is talk of this guy moving and helping a team win...Every year it doesn't workout...We shall see...

Jokinen who had been with the Coyotes, wasn't the only salary that was dumped in Phoenix...They also traded defenseman Derek Morris to the Rangers...For Petr Pruca, Nigel Dawes, and Dmitri Kalinin...Kalinin was another pussy Rangers defensemen...Morris is a little better...Hopefully he has more balls than Wade Redden, who the Blueshirts couldn't have traded for a bag of pucks...The Rangers also added Nik Antropov from Toronto...Great another underachiever...

(Morris and Antropov)

The Coyotes come out a winner in my book....Dumping loads of salary and picking up plenty of young talent and draft picks...

Just a couple loser...The Panthers will regret not trading Jay Bouwmeester...They aren't gonna do anything if they make the playoffs, and he'll be gone after the season...Minnesota should have moved Marian Gaborik...He's an amazing player...When his weak ass isn't hurt...They should have gotten something for him...Anything...(just my big mouth opinion here)

Back to the Rangers...Sean Avery is back with the Rangers, and I'm happy about it...The guy is an asshole, but....He's got great speed, good skills, and he pisses people off...Not on my team: He's a douche, and I hate him...On my team: He's a douche, and I love him...

The World Baseball Classic has started...I couldn't care less...I think this thing is stupid...It's the wrong time of the year to do it, and if the genius that I am was a manager...(wait for laughs)...I wouldn't let my players participate in it...

The Notre Dame Hockey news will be brief this week...The CCHA playoffs started this weekend...The Irish had a first round bye....Next weekend The Irish will take on the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks in a best of three series in South Bend...

So far The Notre Dame Baseball team is 5-4 in the early season tournaments...

That's it for now...Have a great week...

What Athletes Inspired You?

This is something I posted quite a while back at Sporting News....

I use to post a sports related question on Fridays...I'd give a little backround about the topic...Give my answer...And wait for the responses...This was originally posted in August...I've chopped out the weekend references...
The first person to get me interested in sports was my Father. I'm sure that's true for many of you. This question is about the athletes that inspired us. The guys or gals, that made you say to yourself "I want to do that", or "that's how I'm gonna play." So simply, what athlete(s) influenced you growing up?

Here's mine......

I think Hockey is an easy one to figure out....JOHN VANBIESBROUCK The first NHL game I watched the Beezer won, and I was hooked....The fact that he wasn't a big guy helped too....I am also vertically challenged....

With Football the whole mystique of Notre Dame got me at a young age, but not one player....

With the pros, there was one guy who stood out to me when I was a kid....

Tony Dorsett I just loved the way he ran. Again not a huge guy. I wore #33 all through grade school football. (I didn't run as well)

Baseball, it was Ryne Sandberg....I loved watching Sandberg field....I would make my Dad hit me grounders all the time...When he couldn't, I was fielding them just like Ryno off the garage door....

I showed you mine...Now show me yours....

Monday Moaning

Another weekend behind us, but plenty to talk about...I'll start this week with the big news in Cleveland...The Browns traded TE Kellen Winslow Jr. to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers....

So far the opinions on this are mixed...Some think the Browns should have gotten more than a 2nd round pick this year, and a 5th rounder next year...With his history of injuries, and being a pain in the ass...I think it's a good deal...

(didn't you know...he's a soldier....Soldier my ass K-2...You're a douche!)

The Browns seem to be re-building on the fly...But they haven't done much other than getting this dolt outta here...I hope there are more moves to come....

In other NFL news The Chiefs pulled off a hell of a deal, snagging Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel from the Patriots, for their 2nd round pick...

The Denver Broncos starting improving their defense,(adding Brian Dawkins) and then pissed off their quarterback Jay Cutler by talking to Tampa Bay about a possible 3 team trade that would send him there, and bring Cassel to Denver...All I can say is what the f*ck were they thinking!

Moving onto Hockey...The New York Rangers lost their first two games under new coach John Tortorella...They played tough...Tougher then they had most of the season...But they still couldn't score...Then the Colorado Avalanche came to Madison Square Garden Saturday night...The Rangers nutted up and looked like a different team...Thumping the Avs 6-1....

Everyone stepped up in this game (except that pussy Redden) including Drury and Gomez....Then it got fun...With less then 5 minutes left in the game their were 66 minutes in penalties...Apparently the Avalanche don't like getting their asses kicked...First was a little scuffle where Ian Laperriere was being his typical punk ass self trying to throw in some cheap shots from behind...Who was the free Ranger on the ice...That candy ass Redden...Everyone else had a hold of somebody...Hey Wade, drop your gloves and grab the f*cker...

Laperriere later got himself a misconduct penalty along with teammate Cody McLeod, and Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky....Then Colton Orr pounded some Colorado punk (Chris Stewart)....That was followed by Darcy Tucker going after Paul Mara...Mara Immediately put his ass on the ice....

The best part of this may have been NHL security having to get between Avs coach Tony Granato, and Rangers assistant Jim Schoenfeld....

The worst part was having to explain why everyone was fighting at the end of the game to my daughter....She's been watching hockey with me since she was a baby...I've never had to explain it before, and I have to say it was hard...I'm all for fighting in hockey...I've never had a problem with it...But I have to say I was stumped...I tried to tell her how it's a physical game and sometimes players get upset...But for some kids that may not make sense...She went along with me, but I could tell that she didn't like the fighting...This has bothered me since I put her to bed that night...I have to say I'm okay that she didn't like the fighting she didn't like the fighting...But I hope it doesn't turn her off to the game...I also think it's bothering me because she's questioning things now...A sure sign that she's growing up....

I've got nothing good from the little Beeze this week...He was sick all weekend...If you want to find out about his weekend, read this.... ...

Next up...Notre Dame Hockey!

Friday night was the last regular season home game for the Fighting Irish and they did not disappoint, as they beat the shit out of the Michigan State Spartans 5-0....The Irish goal scorers were...Captain Erik Condra with 2...Justin White...Billy Maday...and Christiaan Minella....Goalie Jordan Pearce made 15 saves in the shutout victory.

Saturday night the Irish went to Michigan State and beat them 2-1...This was the first time Notre Dame has swept the Spartans since the 1978-79 season...The Goal scorers were...Erik Condra, and Christian Hanson....Pearce made 19 saves while earning his 26th victory of the season....

The Fighting Irish finish the regular season with a overall record of 27-5-3...Their conference record is 21-4-3-3...

I'm calling it right now...The Irish are taking the National Championship this year!

Now one last thing before I get outta here...I've been slowly puuting together a new site...I guess you could call it The Beezewax 2.0...My hope is that it will be just something fun...A place top talk shit about whatever...I have a few forums set up, and I'll be posting something new on the home page Monday night to maybe get some shit started...If you hover over the HOME link a link to YOU GAB will pop up also....I hope you'll check it out, and let me know what you think....

And don't forget to stop by the GAB...

That's all for now...Have a good week...

Later, The Beeze.
