Up In SmokeShareThis
Alrighty-o. My newest entry for The Hockey News is up at http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/27298-Justin-Bournes-Blog-The-summertime-grind.html if you’d like to take a look at that. A little explanation of why this is the time of the year hockey players really start the grind for next season.
But first, a couple thoughts!
Anyone else watch the ESPY’s?
If I was sick of Debbie Phelps after the Olympics (and I was), I need some Ginger Ale and Pepto again after that awards show. This broad gets more airtime than Amelia Earhardt (though a “was never heard from again” ending wouldn’t be quite so tragic in this case).
The only known antidote to a Debbie Phelps sighting is Marissa Miller. Thankfully, she was in attendance as well.
I’m calling for the head of the next person I hear use the expression “you know what they say here, if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes”.
It’s weather. It changes quickly everywhere, not just in your town.
At least come up with your own expression, like “You know what they say, if you don’t like the weather, there’s absolutely f***ing nothing anybody can do about it, so stay indoors.”
Plus, in Kelowna we have very little sympathy for all these places with intermittent rain, largely because every few years now I can here Nero fiddling away while our lovely summer city goes up in smoke like a Snoop Dogg/Dre tour. Apparently, consecutive months with no rain isn’t cool if you live amongst a quatrillion pine trees. Who knew?
We’re up to 11,000 evacuated as of yesterday, and The Cove – the resort home of our Fantasy Camp in two weeks – is currently evacuated too. Awesome.
That’s not too far from where Heatley lives – maybe he’ll be smoked out of his own home and have to talk to the media soon. We can only hope!
