We had my sister down from Orlando, over the weekend...so i only saw some of the hockey...Barry Melrose said Crawford is a very underrated goalie, and that Chicago's speed is something LA needs to figure out...Swear, looks like Blackhawks could win it all again....Blysmea getting fired? or just GM....I like Pen's coach....I really want Montreal to make it a series....Sister is a snowbird...here and Michigan...it's both appealing and not, to me.....She's a Tiger though, just her and her little SUV...lol....Bet your friends looking forward to World Cup...alotta bargirls in Brazil are...lol....No, Obama will never get the credit for being the guy, during this recovery...I just get uncomfortable when any area starts heating too fast....that was the early sign before.....If Europe was a bit more stable, this situation in Ukraine, might be different...Obama is wise to let them take the lead on reacting to Putin...it's their direct neighbor, they are the ones with the fuel deals.........

Obama has to let the europeans lead on the crimea... for so many reasons that a McCain cant understand...If we were going to go beyond what they are ready to support we would find our selfs on our own... then if we cut and ran..the Eurpeans would pay the price...But ... Putin doesnt want a war if he did we would have seen it.. his countries economy needs to catch up for the moomentuem the crimea situaion has cost them his next move is to exchange 'peace' for normalized relations... The Pens GM Fred Shero's son was canned...my bet is next GM wants his own coach...I am sure bobby is looking forward to the orld cup...The kid is not National team material. so he will be playing here but every fan or player world wide is looking forward...his step dad was not a big fan of the game..until recently... BTW USA has a chance to make an impression.. nice run... but we are not , Brazil or England rather like UB a good mid - major Article about the Miami U. tackle the Bills took.. suspensions were from multiple failed drug tests.. included is one at the combine ...hmmm ok

Yes, i agree that Obama is watching, how the Europeans and NATO want to proceed....Too bad we could'nt work out some deal, where we hand over Sarah Palin, in leiu of exiting Ukraine...I'd bet he would like to govern her......So, that means, Blysmea is gonna get fired?....He won two cups, did'nt he?....Pens look older, and others are gonna pay for it....Tonight, Montreal better be big....Robert Mathis screwed up...all he had to do was call the drug name, in to the league to check....Seem's that eventually he would get smarter...you know, beyond just football smart?.....Here is a shocker from last weekend....Sister leaves condofor FOUR MONTHS....with the ceiling fans going.....i could'nt believe it....She said the fan guys said it kept the place fresher and eliminated mildew, or some such BS....What up wit dat?.........

you really think that Putin is dumb enough to take Palin....I thnk he is a tad cagier than that....but on the other hand maybe if we turn a blind eye and give him the rest of the Ukraine...there may be an old gulag camp that he could reopen..enouugh space for the whole 4th reich...Putun knows where those camps all are...Blysmea may get fired. sportts is un sentimental about these things almost everyone gets fired eventually... montreal actual played a decent game beating Lundquist is almost impossible...The sister and the fan is funny the electric power company loved it too...Keep some lights on and the tv running too...The kid from Miami we got who keeps melting drug test cups was the #1 OL prospect comming out of HS...And he is 6'7 330 if he can pass his tests he has a chance but how often does that work..I wonder if Whaley is to lax about character

You're right....Russia already has enough tunas....Plus Palin is old, and likely dried out.....It is a good excuse for swallowing up Ukraine..though......Heat-Pace rs should be interesting tonight....Have you seen some of the pundits are kinda down on Manziel acting like the Savior and making the money sign at the draft?....He's our first white/black guy...lol....Montreal looks outclassed to me, they made mistakes on at least one goal, i saw.....Melrose said one more loss, and it's over....Kinda miss Gauguan and Ratface now...lol....Fact of Life : University of Miami get's some of the shiniest, Diamonds in the Rough, as anybody....Now, the Bill's know their mission.....Bet he needs pot, in order to maintain that 330?.....They are probably gonna ease up on pot, with those kids....it's such a nothing.....See Jameis Winston is back in the news, for pleading the 5th with police, when two of his teamates got in some crap.....lol...

Don't believe you can call a kid who was #1 OL recruit out of HS a diamond in the rough...There are other kids who had failed drug tests and turned out fine... What drug was it that Hernandez was positive on...Yes Miami U has diamonds in the rough like Gaines the middle LB the Bills got as an un drafted free agent...Great productivity and he played his hs ball in buffalo he was sign sealed and delivered but Turner Gil left and Quinn the current coach never cemented a relationship with the kid...Melrose is right .In game #2 the Canadiens out shot the rangers by 10 shots If lundquist is ordinary ...Tonight Chicago v L.A. The kings need to keep playing that same steady game.. and their problem is what the Canadians is...L.A. has to figure a way past the hot goalie...The hardest thing in hockey is to be in a series where you simply can not beat the goalie

There is just too much young talent down here, and most of it is big and black....plus they can play in extreme heat....alway's thought the Canes, Gators and Dolphins had a real edge in early home games....Gainesville is a horridly hot place, with zero breeze....Your right, Lundquist is playing fantastic, plus with Price hurt, that may signal the end of that series...My wife likes Lundquist, since he was in a segment we saw about him modeling suits in NY.....Lebron and Dwayne Wade took over the end of their game, last night....Pacers are #1 seed, which means 2 home, 3 away, 2 home....The Heat are smart, they split the first two, taking the home field away....I think it will be Heat-Spurs in the final again....Blackhawks could easily win another Cup, the way this is setting up....See the GOP beating up the teaparty candidates, in many of these primarys....The House might be quite different, if the teaparty faction lost power to the other republicans.....Question?....I f the Phoenix Vet Hospital is the epicenter of this scheduling issue, why has'nt John McCain spoken up before??? He loves attacking this President....And, i can guarantee veterans would have been contacting his office in droves....Curious?.....

The tea party isn't ended as a force but it may have seen its peak...But that saiid they have dragged the GOP so far to the right that guys who were tea party favorites will be call RINO's by others inside the tea....The question about the Vets hospital in Phoenix is easy to answer they lose interest in things that might not embarrass the president You are right about the edge that the southern teams have in the early part of the season...offsetting the advantage that northern teams have in the late season and playoffs and if you had pick where to place your advantage ,late in the season and playoffs would be my pick....What you guys get is the northern guys who want to come down for the year round beach action...The beach at Beaver island, smack dab in the middle of the Niagara hasn't the same allure

I would guess that Bud Grant thinks the Vikings new indoor stadium is a mistake...He was right, years ago when he built teams that played well outside in Minnesota, in freezing cold....it was an edge....many teams could'nt take it....Buffalo is like that....N.E. too...Denver, and plus the no oxygen deal....Almost puked last night, after watching wife's show, then turning back to the game....2-1 Chicago to 5-2 L.A.....Brutal.....I like freshwater fishing, so your area and Michigan are more preferable...i am edgy on local, because it never freezes.....You're right about the beach though....You can go in the water, all year.....Lake Michigan and the Pacific aren't like that....That pill, daliresp...took me from 240-214 in 6 weeks....kinda scary?

The Bud Grant Viking teams didn't allow heaters on the sideline....There were playoff games in Green Bay annd Minnesota that the Cowboys remember to this day...Jerry Jones is pushing for Bon Jovi to become he new Bills owner Jones logic...Bon Jovi is 'open' to moving the team to Toronto and Jones says that opening Canada is for more important for the NFL....
The Kings showed that they aren't anywhere near dead yet....They have the type of team this is tough to play...They have nice physical players who contribute like Dustin Brown, getting his nose smashed early in the game last night stuff 1\2 a roll of guaze up there and don't mss a shift... gotta love hockey players...
I want that pill up to 225 feel like a min sumo...or a prego - middle aged guy...I have never had jiggle in the md-drift...Maybe the cardio doc needs to up the diruretic....

In the football movie, North Dallas Forty...the opening scene is Nick Nolte waking up after the game and going through all kind of stuff....one is using tweezers to take the bloody gauze outta his nose....just like Dustin Brown....Looked to me like Crawford's defense let him down a bit....Yeah, it looks like we may get a real series after all.....On Cowherd, Tony Basilli and Kyle Turley are on opposite ends of this new NFL Drug suit....Tony says no one forced anything on him,,,He stood in line for his shots, and that everyone knew the dangers.....Bull, you gotta know, the NFL is chomping at the bit, to get a foreign team.....Doc went okay, more diet pills...lol....my problem is years of bench presses, then gaining weight, creates a unique anatomical chest feature.....confusing the children at the beach.....lol....

If you go to the right beaches down there you wont need to frighten any children...The NFL could use a foreign presence...also mentioned is the need for a developmental league... Kill two birds with one stone.. The NFL buys out the CFL instant developmental if each NFL team pitches in 7 players half the league is stocked...the other 1\2 are reserved for Canadians...Giving more of them an NFL shot. After a few years you might have enough talent to be able put two teams in Canada...Many years ago I had taken a stick across the nose stuffed toilet paper up my nostrils ... It is damn hard to play an oxygen sucking game like hockey with out being able to breathe....Tony is full of fertilizer in this way...maybe no coach said you must...But if you see the guys who dont lose jobs...You get in line...Also we saw in the incognito/ Martin affair according to Incognito a coach encouraging him to pressure Martin....it s not inconceivable to assume that his kind of pressure was used...Kyle is maybe also self pitying We knew Sayres and Butkus have no knees... did he think football was safe...or even capable of becoming safe....being a college guy he should have been bright enough to retire after his firs major injury?

Don't despair...the NFL might still put one of the developmental mixed teams in Buffalo.....Bon Jovi could play at the season opener.....lol.....WE alway's put waded anything up between front teeth and upper lip, to stop nosebleeds....Bull, the problem with these "history of" type lawsuits is, where do you stop the Looking Back Machine?....Beautiful women in my family dies in 1959, in a horrid car crash, cut off by another car and rolling down an elevated part of I-95 in Miami, thrown from the car....Too late to sue Buick for the convertible with no seatbelts, whatsoever?.....I think alot of the issue is also about taking personal responsibility....mixed in with some likely less than scrupulous team doctors....Butkus, Sayres....I also wonder about Mike Ditka, Mike Webster and Jim Otto.....BTW, has anyone picked up Incognito?

Just for giggles i looked it up no one has picked up Ritchie incognito but Mark Davis attempted to prove that the chestnut didn't roll far from the tree said the Raiders would be interested in signing Incogito...You know the NFL would prefer the Raiders left him be...The big question is why hasn't professional wrasslin' picked him up??? Not to beltle anything can't sue Buick...statute of limitations...you also know with zero ability to sue for fraudulent practices and faulty products us old guys would be up to our flappiing nipples in fraudullent practuices and faulty products...Or do you think that the same nice people who made millions selling us out to China would behave only because we ask nice..? The pendulem does swing too far and lawyers are as eager as corporate heads to screw us all for fun and profit...But how do you see getting any justice ever with no leverage?
That said we both know evil when we smell it and We would agree to put evii greed heads of all professions on a one way trip to antartica to babysit glaciers ...

The Raider's M.O. has always been, to take the lepers and castoffs...Oakland is a perfect town for them too.....Bullying aside, the guy is an animal at Guard....I think MMA has kicked pro wrestling to the curb, and if it has'nt it should....lol....You do understand, my Buick scenario, was in connection to the Oldies vs. NFL issue...?....Suing for something that happened waaay back, seem's too weasel lawyer-motivated....As for the whole horizon, gotta wonder if they will ever deal with the greed, in our lifetime.....Glad Mark Cuban said what he did....everyone has a varying degree of prejudice, within us......but, can our American social system, so void of common sense, handle that debate?.....Watched some of hockey...wanted to puke, when Rangers scored with 28 seconds left....Glad Montreal won, and only 73 seconds into overtime.....

What amazes me always had...is how many passionate wrestling fans there are...When my son was 12 we got ring side seats and the bad guyy who's name i cant recall had is Buddy "hide" in the crowd sitting next to us...they did the old double team the good guy bit right at our feet ..got my son some prime time face time...and make him a 8th grade legend...If your older than that and your into it... get checked out...I understoood what you were saying about the Buick... I agree with you which is why i was soft in pointing out the limits that exist...You do understand that many businessmen need to have a threat hanging over thier heads to curb thier greed and compensate their victims... as inefficient as that is....mark Cuban is riight we all have varying degrees of prejudice in us...We can't get it all out, of ourselves and our system.. that shouldn't even be a goal... if it is there would be no one left innocent...Gov't action against racism is like product liability we will never be free of racism or flawed products.. You just want to limit the public's exposure and damage..and if the expression of racially questionable conduct is private...f*ck it

In 1974, Girlfriend and i went to see Dusty Rhodes, Jack Briscoe and others at Ft. Lauderdale Armory.....Saw Buddy Rogers and Hatstacks Calhoun as a kid.....And Sailor Art Thomas, whose biceps had gotten so big, they ruptured, giving him a second set of biceps...like Popeye in the cartoon.....That was a great memory for your boy....What is fascinating about the Cuban interview is watching, just how media and ESPN's black talking heads react to it.....Really show's just where they are at....Nobody can ever use the term, "hoodie" in any description again, because of Trayvon...What BS......Like the local TV news, not giving out descriptions anymore.....Chris Rock does a routine about the most racist of all.....Old black men, because they can still recall the old days....Cracker ass cracker.....lol.....Isn't it good, that no 80 year old black guys own an NBA team?......

That night of wrestling was a great memory for the kid making it memorable for me...When i said i was suprised about whois passionate about wrestling...I wasn't talking about the kids who got a kick out of it ...What was creepy was the 1,000 adults dressed up as Macho man Savage and were unescorted by a kid... We were all kids once and i was a the Aud to see Haystacks calhoon, Ernie Ladd and the Magnificent Muraco.. i remember the forklift to get Calhoon in the ring and his tag team parter was Little abner who could of hid in Haystacks Bellyroll.Could wade into the way the media handles race, sex and religeon agendas issues...Instead here are a few rules of thumb...1) Everyone has an agenda, 2) most of all the guy who says he doesn't have an agenda 3) "Fair" and "truth' exist only in storys for Children and the kids are too cynical to believe in them anymore... 4) The guy who says "just leave well enough alone" clearly has it pretty good..

Yeah, pro wrestling really attracts an interesting crowd...we only ever went that once, as grownups....Polo was the opposite, but once was enough.....Did you see, The Wrestler?...the Mickey Rourke movie....pretty brutal....Wife and i watched, Coming Home...last night, with Jon Voight and Jane Fonda....she had never seen it, and it brings back alotta memories of that Vietnam-era period......You are right about individual agendas and everyone has their own version of Fair and Truth....I'm shocked at the reichsters that get on here, with a fictional version of reality...It's getting tougher for them to deny this economy....i love it.....lol....The hand of God, has lightened up on Jim Irsay's charges....It's a Miracle....

Mickey rourke played in a lot of movies that have been called brutal by various people for various reasons ...When I find my self liking something that he is in it is usually for a reason that has little to do with him... some of his co-stars perhaps...Yes every one has hier own version of fair and truth....Some closer to objettive than others... to be shocked by the crap that dizzles out of the 4th Reichs stormtroopers...maybe they've spoiled me but i am no longer amazed....Not that the fictional scenarios were ever plausable but now it has a more desperate bouquet...it has been mostly good economic news nows the time to launch into a co-ordinated national campaign ever bit as sacchrine and optimistic as ron Reagans "morning in America" ads for his re-elecion....There has been a lot accomplished and now is the time to sell your accomplishments
