2010...A Beeze Odyssey? I Hope!


I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years...If not...Oh well!
Did you watch the Ball drop? Did you hear Dick Clark struggle to count it down again? Please Dick, stop...Give it up already...And can we Stop calling it New Year"s Rockin' Eve...None of those acts are rockin'!
-
In the last few years I have found myself watching ESPN on New Year's Eve...There's something about watching a guy put his life on the line that's more exciting then a flashing ball being slowly lowered down a pole...This was last night's big stunt...



That was pretty damn cool...But I don't think it was as bad ass as Robbie Madison's jump last year!




Either way...It's a cool way to bring in the New Year...I hope 2010 is better then 2009...

As a matter of fact...I've got a few things I'm hoping for in this new year, and new decade...Let's make a list!

I hope to lose the weight required, so that I may ultimate prize...Love ya honey!
Deep frying chocolate cover Oreos isn't gonna help that goal...But I had to try something new...

I hope to finish the book I'm working on...And it brings me great wealth and enough notoriety to get me into some cool parties!

I hope to win the Mega Millions...Quit my job...Blog all I want...Move to Boston...Take a trip to Toronto and Vancouver...

I'm sure once I move The Cleveland Browns will win a "Super Bowl."

I'd like to see Brian Kelly turn around Notre Dame and bring it back to some bit of greatness that it once was...

I'd like to see the New York Rangers pull their collective heads out of their asses and win the Stanley Cup...1994 was great, and us Rangers fans don't want to do that whole waiting 60 years crap again!

Lastly, I hope that my family and friends all have happy and healthy years...With very limited hardships...2009 had some highs, but it has felt like a lot more lows...I'm a very lucky man, but I wouldn't mind more luck...How about you?

It's January now, which is when I really get into hockey season...Football is almost done, and of course New Year's Day brings the "Winter Classic." It's become a tradition on New Year's Day, and I love it...This year it was in Fenway Park...Bruins vs Flyers...It was great game...Not filled with all kinds of scoring as some would like...But it was filled with lots of old time hockey...Plenty of physical...Lots of defense...And the first fight in "Winter Classic" history...



Late in the third period the Bruins tie the game up at 1-1 on a power play goal by Mark Recchi...The game went to overtime, and we had to keep hearing the announcers repeatedly call it extra innings...Get it...'Cause they were playing in Fenway...Douches!

In OT Bruins winger Marco Sturm scored the game winner on a feed from Patrice Bergeron...

This was a great way to sell the game...Good non-stop action...Good defense...Physical play the entire game...And a thrilling finish...The NHL has to continue this tradition...I just hope the don't ruin it y having ten of these a year...Commissioner Bettman has a way of screwing things up...I hope he doesn't mess this up too!

Here's a New Year's resolution for the readers out there...If you're not really much of a hockey fan...This year, go checkout a game live...In person...It doesn't have to be NHL...the minors will do...Or College...Give it a shot and let us know what you think...

That's it for now...I gotta go deep fry something, and eat on the exrcise bike...

Best wishes to all in the new year...

Later, The Beeze.

Beeze, I wish you luck on your conquest. I have been shooting for the same hole (I mean goal) for many years with my wonderful wife. She is slowly starting to crack and we too have a challenge that may have me screaming goalllllllllllllllllllllllllll very soon.

Here's to a safe and happy 2010 to you and yours along with all the readers/visitors here at The Beezewax.

Once that book gets finished I want an autographed copy.

Good luck with your conquest my friend!

My new years resolution is to win the mega millions so you can't have that one. Let's face it I have more bills than you do. If I do win I will share with you. I truly hope 10 is better than 09. We still have some things to over come but I am hoping life will start to be normal by February. I wish you all the luck in the world and here's to losing weight in the new year. My goal is just to look good for my sister-in-law's wedding. Keep up the good work.

The BEEZE said...

Thanks, 3rd...

-A, right back at ya!

aking, I'm willing to split it with ya...I don't know about the more bills thing...We still have some debt from when the little beeze was a baby...Good luck, and thanks!
