WAKE UP! Let’s get today goin’ with three must-see videos:
You only need the first 30 seconds or so of this next one. A “fake robbery” prank gone wrong… I love how shady the guy is after, like “nothing to see here…”:
Have you seen “Jersey Shore” yet? God I hope not. Unfortunately, some of us live with east coast girls who think reality TV is hilarious, and I’ll admit, this one is tough to turn away from for all the wrong reasons. For my Canadian friends, here’s a sneak peek at the high-quality television MTV is running these days (by the way, a million thanks to the news anchors for their insightful commentary on the show.)
(*high-pitched* WHAT GUY DOES THAT??)
I understand how some things are tough for countries to change, like for the US, it would be expensive to switch to the reasonable system of measurement, metric. What I don’t get, is why it would be a huge, raging difficulty for both Canada and the US to simply change our national sports to what our countries national sports actually are.
Really, Canada? Lacrosse? At least Americans can debate over a couple stupid loopholes, like the word “pasttime”. What’s our excuse for ignoring the obvious? And not to sound like Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler, but REALLY, USA? Baseball? Can you be proud of yourselves being represented by A NON-CONTACT sport? That doesn’t seem very American to me. What gets better ratings, the Superbowl or MLB playoff “action”?
Jose Theodore spent two months sabotaging my fantasy hockey team from the inside, like a double agent. After the discovery of his bad intentions and his subsequent release, he went back to his true owner, whoever it is I’m playing this week (I believe that’s you, AiH).
Theodore nearly put up a shutout for my opponent (head-to-head league) in a 6-1 win with a huge save percentage. I wanted to like you, Jose, I really did. In the prime of your career, you wore a toque on your helmet for an outdoor game. And now, all you have are reservations for one at Justin Bourne’s Sports Hate Bar and Grill.
Isn’t having “divisions” in sports just a generally horrible idea? In all seriousness, why do we need them, just to lower travel expenses? What would be so bad about just having two conferences and the top teams making it?
It just makes no sense to me that you can get the three seed in playoffs when you don’t have the third best record in your conference. It also make no sense to me that good teams like the Toronto Blue Jays routinely have to take the no-jock crotch-kick of being in the same division with the Yankees and Red Sox, while teams like the Washington Capitals get 20-some night-off-free-W’s a year by being good enough to coast past Carolina, Florida, Tampa Bay or Atlanta once every few games.
Happy humpday. Time to start holiday shopping?
