Monday Moaning

I've had a number of things I've wanted to write about this week, but I found myself being lazy and searching out new and strange porn...I'll try to hit a few of those other topics today...But I have to start with this...


Thirty years ago the greatest moment in sports history, at least in my life time, and my opinion, happened...The 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey team beat the powerhouse Soviet Union team...It was something that wasn't suppose to happen...But it did...It was one of those moments that showed us how great and inspiring sports can be...A group of College kids, beat Russia's pros...The team that was the best in the world...

My Father didn't make me go to bed...Hell, he made me stay up...And I'm so grateful for that...I was only 4 years old, and knew nothing about hockey...But I knew this was big...As the game moved on, and I saw the crowds reactions...The tension, and excitement building...My Dad sitting on the edge of his seat...I'd never seen this or felt this before...

When it was over, and I had to go to bed, I couldn't sleep...I was up half the night replaying the game in my head...With myself starring as Jim Craig...

From that moment on, I was hooked on the game of Hockey...The U.S. went on to beat Finland for the Gold Medal...And we haven't had another moment like...And honestly, I don't think we ever will...

Now all the teams have pros...So even though other teams are favored to win...It wouldn't shock the world if the U.S. team, made up of All-Star caliber NHL players won the gold...As a matter of fact, the U.S. took it to Canada Sunday night, beating them 5-3...Ryan Miller was amazing between the pipes...


And 36 year old Brian Rafalski scored 2 goals and added an assist...

I have to give Canada's Rick Nash (Columbus Blue Jackets) some serious credit...he's busted his ass in every game, and has been a non-stop energy guy...He was nailing U.S. players all night, and setup the 3rd Canadian goal...

Now, to move on to some other topics...F**K Curling! 11 out of the 14 days of the Olympics, Curling is on...Holy boring ass game...NOT Sport...Game...Freaking shuffleboard on ice! I don't get it...I don't want to get it...And I'd like NBC and all their other networks to get it off my TV already...

Next...Tiger Woods did what so many wanted him to do...He apologized...So many of these talking heads on TV and Radio said he needed to apologize to people...No he didn't...He needed to apologize to his family...Not the douche on "The Insider" who said, "He owes me an apology." He doesn't owe you shit...So he does, and you dolts blast for that too...This is what he should have said...http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/a4820e5cbc/i-am-tiger-woods
Moving right along...Since I mentioned the douche on "The Insider"...Here's Gary Coleman blowing up on that stupid show...



Of course the little guy blew up...She was being a c**t and trying to make him blow up...All those people involved are ass-hats, and should be beaten...Watching that show, "I can see how a hand becomes fist."

Now I try to avoid politics, but this isn't really politics...I mean this person quit her job as a governor, so I guess that makes this not political...I personally think Sarah Palin is a dolt...You may feel otherwise...In my opinion, it was going to be hard to stop the Obama train, and putting her on the ticket with McCain sealed the deal...We can get into that stuff later though...Recently Sarah Palin has been taking on the use of the word retard...That is unless big, fat, Rush says it...

I understand that she has a developmentally challenged child...Or whatever watered down term you like...But when I grew up...The word was retarded...As the world got more politically correct, you weren't aloud to call retarded people retarded...So the word retard started getting used in a 7th grade mentality way...'Dude I can't believe you did that...You're such a retard!' Just as gay started getting used in that 7th grade way...'Dude, playing Farmville is gay.'

Now Mrs. Palin is mad at the show "Family Guy" for poking fun at her, and using the word retard...Listen gash, you put yourself in the spotlight...You're gonna have to take sh!t like everyone else...You're gonna need thicker skin if you really want a job in politics...Although you quit one job already, so I'm guessing you don't have what it takes...I'll end this topic with this...




If this offends you, too bad! Write your own blog!

On we go to my weekend...Saturday night the Mrs. and I went out to The Melting Pot with our friends...I got a rock solid Conway's Irish Ale buzz on...Then later that night, the little Beeze woke up after a nightmare...I was up...Drunk...And watching "Casino." So I let him hang out with me...I put on cartoons or something...It was 4:00 AM and he was still up...I finally passed out...He went into my bed...I was up at 7:00 AM Sunday...kicked everyone out of my bed, and got a couple hours of sleep...

I knew this was going to be along day...So I made a deal with the kids...I'll take you to Build-A-Bear, but after that you have to behave, and behave quietly...Well they both also scored a cap at LIDS...I scored 2...She got a pink Cleveland Browns cap...One with the dog on it...He got a SpongeBob one...I got a old school Cubs cab, and a new Cleveland State cap...$160 later they stuck to the deal...That's right, I bought my hangover some peace and quiet...Thank God!

Have a great week...

Later, The Beeze.

First I was pretty disappointed in that game last night. As my husband says they should have had it on NBC not MSNBC which not everyone gets. If their trying to push hockey then they have not clue how to do it. Second I think the people on the "insider" or what ever its called are "retarded". He said flat out that there is no abuse that goes on in his house. And that "doctor" if it continued he would have hit someone. What an ass. Third Sara Palin is dumber than a box of rocks. My husband and I both said that if she hadn't of come out and said anything about the family guy episode than no one would have remembered it. It was a short to the point joke that they overshadowed right away. She is just giving them more press. I can only assume that is what they were going for. Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

1980 hockey team was awesome. Extra special for me considering I watched 2 BGSU players in college.

The NBC tribute (hour at 5 pm Sunday) was awesome ... and capable of choking must of us at some time.
