Winter in sun 57

Image your 19 years old, and while most other kids your age are working sweeping up popcorn at the local theater, your playing professional hockey. And more than that, you were drafted high and have serious potential to not just crack the NHL for a cup of coffee, but to become an actual NHL player. Competing at the highest level in the world and with the pay to match.


Now think what it would take for you to wake up one morning and decide that it just wasn't for you anymore.

That's what Columbus prospect Stefan Legein, drafted 37th overall in 2007, did. [ Columbus Dispatch ]

The only logically explanation is that he's throwing it all away to join forces with Patrick Roy's son, Jonathon Roy [ HisSpace ] to create a rap duo that will take the Canadian charts by storm.

We've only just crossed the half way point of the 08 Beijing Olympics, but our favorite event is already in full swing. Olympic Doping.

Thus far 4 athletes, not too mention a couple horses, have tested positive. But our first stripped medals for use of prohibited substance goes to:

North Korean Kim Jung Su.
Bronze in 10m Air Pistol, Silver in 50m Pistol.

Essentially ending the career of an athlete whose expertise is shooting weapons with incredible accuracy is either amazingly ballsy or monumentally stupid.


Following quickly in 2nd, Ukranian silver medalist in the heptathlon, Lyudmila Blonska is under investigation for doping.



Keep in mind though, that it's ultimately not about whose first. And if we've learned anything in these olympics thus far, never count Phelps out.

2 - 1

[ NHL.com RECAP ]

In a perfect world, The Penguins would win the next 25 games of the regular season.
Then they would win 16 straight playoff games, bring the Cup rolling down Grant Street.
And we'd all party all summer on the three rivers.

Realistically, you woke up today.
It was cold.
You were pissed.



That's life. If you can't handle one little loss, what are you really even about?
Come April, you might not even be alive.

Suck it up.
Get yourself together.

See you in Carolina.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
After some jobbing and a Pens power play turning into poop, Gonchar complements his earlier penalty with an egregious giveaway behind the Pens net.
Shot, save, rebound.
Jokelainen puts it home.
1-0.

And then just when you say that the Bruins don't scare you, the Pens lullygag in their own zone while the Bruins were playing hockey.

Puck goes in front. 2-0.



:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
The Pens were able to kill off that penalty.
But that was about it.

Noting remotely interesting happened until Staal pick-pocketed some dude.
He got the puck to Talbot.
Talbot to EC...
Oops.

He gets a pass from Sykora.
Chara screens the goalie. 2-1.

So bored, watched the U.S. get shit-canned by Japan in softball this morning.

Seriously, with a monster like Bustos who is big enough to hit the ball from Beijing back to the U.S., how do we lose...

JOKES.

P.S. - Can't believe I'm typing/pissed about softball...God, end the summer.

Robert Ullman said...

Could the US getting jobbed in softball actually be a good thing? They might keep it around if it's not a foregone conclusion that the 'Mericuns are gonna win gold every time.

Dan said...

i was at that boston game. not fun.

i see more mst3k talk went on after i went to bed. damn. i always liked the movie with the worms.

Anthony said...

I think it's a foregone conclusion that it's going to be canned.

Who knows. Make it October. Hell, I'd even settle for late September.

Dan said...

whoa, this was unexpected

r.i.p. gene upshaw

dying alive said...

Squirm!

J.S. said...

His name was just in the news within the last week for doing something in the league. I had no idea he was sick.

shawnawwwesome said...

Roy has Zac Efron in his top 12 myspace friends. Holy shite, you can't get more legit than that.

Staff is a little premature tossing Phelps under the Straight Job Express. (I'm not even sure there's room for him, what with all the former Pens under that bus.)

Dan said...

that's it d.a.!

j.s. - i don't think he ever went public saying he had cancer. it makes sense that they were looking for a successor now though. please do not hire gary bettman.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

The Pens' center ice design is currently trailing on Icethetics. If you haven't voted already, get your ass over there to spur the comeback.

P.O. said...

http://www.bestweekever.tv/2008/08/19/just-asking-is-michael-phelps-a-douche/

Dan said...

p.o. - i suggest peeping out the rest of that barstool website from yesterday. there's some good, um, talent on there.

Stilly said...

Oh it's gone. IOC doesn't see enough teams involved. I think there were a total of 6 teams for softball or something stupid. I just hope Jennie Finch takes up badminton...

Dan said...

funny you mention jennie fitch. a friend and i were just having a discussion about her, and the word "playboy" came up (pun not intended)

anyone see that picture of the terrible towel at the olympics anywhere?

Maria said...

@p.o.- Awe, I think Michael Phelps might be a douche.

@ Dan, Football=beach volleyball?

P.O. said...

misty may - gold medal for best ass in the olympics


@ dan

went back to the site... so much talent.. makes me wish i would have gone to UHartford instead of the small midwest school i chose

Max Power said...

Holy shit cancer boy died!?

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Yeah, Max. Where have you been?

The Pirates finally killed him.

Dan said...

pops - ouch, too soon

max - did you quit drinking

maria - ya that's it, apparently i'm blind

you know, german olympic athletes did german playboy, why can't the americans?

michael phelps actually has a mental disability, not sure what.

Maria said...

He has ADHD. (Look at me recalling all the facts the swimming commentators repeated over and over every time Phelps was in the pool!)

Max Power said...

pulling out all stops on a 9 day bender some news slips through the cracks. The Pirates killed him => agreed. The only reason he made it so long is that he spent time with 66.

@ dan

Phelp's mumz said that growing up he had severe AD/HD. I'm still pulling for downsyndrome.

shawnawwwesome said...

Why does c-blog hate America?

Max Power said...

I don't hate America, just a poultry few Americans.

Max Power said...

Like everyone one in Filthadelphia, Screw York City, the state of California, Cincinasty (or Ohio in general), New Dirty and Texas. F' Pats fans too. F' em in da A'

dying alive said...

cancer boy

Not nice.

Max Power said...

@ d a

Have you not seen Thank You for Smoking?

dying alive said...

Nope, I haven't yet. And I know the Challis family personally so I'm sensitive about the situation.

Victor Raison said...

I hardly think this guy is in a position to be commenting on douchery.

Although he probably knows quite a lot about being one.

Dan said...

max - i'm with u on the downsyndrome. he kinda looks like geno.

Max Power said...

I think one of the reasons he swims so fast is because of his giant ears. I hypothesize that they have the effect of a stingray and help him glide through the water.

dying alive said...

Phelps is a little goofy looking from the neck up, but my god, he more than makes up for it from the shoulders down. Jesus.

Dan said...

he's no crosby...........

Maria said...

da, Hell yes. His torso looks like it belongs on the statue of a Greek god.

shawnawwwesome said...

The lad had to overcome a chronic sugar high to grow up and swim really fast for his country.

I won't believe there's anything wrong "upstairs" until I see him partying with Kid Rock, Kris Draper and Chris Chelios.

Max Power said...

Don't get wrong. I'm proud he's an American. Yet nobody is safe from my 1st amendment rights.

Dan said...

he's from baltimore, therefore, he is not american

shawnawwwesome said...

Being from Charm City is just another handicap he had to overcome.

Geez, I should get some PR money from Team Phelps for all the work I'm doing here.

Max Power said...

shawn your starting to sound like your a taper for mentally deficient men who swim

RedWings said...

Phelps also has a mouthful of crooked chicklets.

I mean, as long as we're picking nits, here.

Dan said...

pick away.........

5yr/18 million for farrior? he's a bit, um, old.

J.S. said...

dan, according to ESPN, he only found out about teh cancers on Sunday. They also said Mortensen saw him on Sunday and although he looked "sluggish", he didn't look like a man who was going to die from cancer in a few days.

Phelps does kinda look like Geno.

Guy Germaine said...

A few idiotic letters to the editor today in the Trib regarding Mario the Great Deceiver. Bunch of jokers.

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/opinion/letters/

Dan said...

oh wow that's terrible the way that all went down, just found out sunday, man that's horrible

RedWings said...

Pancreatic cancer is one of the very worst and terminal forms of cancer. It is amazing that the end came mere days after finding out, but usually pancreatic cancer patients are giving a "months" diagnosis. He and his family were probably spared a lot of pain and suffering due to his sudden passing.

God rest his soul, and help his loved ones.

Dan said...

if i remember right, that is the same form patrick swayze is suffering from, correct?

dying alive said...

Imagine going into the doctor's office today and finding out that you may not live to see next weekend. Wow.

Max Power said...

Patrick Swayze has the big C? How can there be a Roadhouse 2 without him?

P.O. said...

roadhouse 2 was already made with gary busey's kid

They're even running a live blog from camp.

dying alive said...

A few idiotic letters to the editor today in the Trib regarding Mario the Great Deceiver. Bunch of jokers.

Bunch of yinzer morons is more like it. They're probably all from old people, who do nothing but cry non-stop about any topic they can find to cry about. Seriously, who even reads a newspaper anymore, let alone bothers to write a letter to the editor? Hey, old people...nobody gives a shit about your opinions. I don't cry about my taxes paying for your Medicare, so STFU.

Either that, or they're retarded Stiller fans who think that football is the only game in town and are threatened by the Pens' surge in popularity. I find that sector of the population highly amusing.

dying alive said...

Ha ha, wow. That came off a lot more aggressively than I intended it to.

Beav said...

Best part of the Roadhouse 2 imdb page. Under "goofs"

bng - you may have your way with my sister for that link

shawnawwwesome said...

Mike Neslon and the boys are doing new movies these days, only with less robots. Their take on 300 is well worth the price.

dying alive said...

They're also doing things under the name "The Film Crew." It's the same thing as MST, minus the robots. Netflix has a couple of the movies.

a commentary with richard cheese? SOLD!!!!!!!!!! and they charge more for the shitty movies, that's even funnier. i saw about the new project, wonder if it's gonna pop up on any network?

debrisslide said...

Watching women's handball. In handball, the powerplay doesn't end when the team on PP scores. Kind of badass.

Flyer Hater said...

Imagine if Fleury wore transparent pads, he'd never give up a goal.

Max Power said...

Slow day at work and I'm running out of fule(booze). This is kind of weird

RedWings said...

@ dan, yeah, that's the same kind that Swayze is fighting. I haven't heard anything about his condition since they announced it three or four months ago. Let's hope no news is good news.

@ jefe, I couldn't quite make out the name on that SI subscription. Was it Mark Spitz?

Maria said...

@ max, Uh, ew. Giving birth to your own grandchild? Awkward.

Rossi just gave me a "goodbye hug." My life is now complete. He's going to miss my coffee making skills.

Max Power said...

that was to be fuel. i suck again

Rage said...

@beav: "Cars just don't explode when they are hit by another car."

Ever hear of the Pinto? lol

Joel Hodgson, the creator of MST3k, and the rest of the original crew here:

http://www.cinematictitanic.com/

Mike Nelson...bitter and alone here:

http://www.rifftrax.com/

Seriously dan, you figger out a way for me to get you these episodes, and I'll do so.

Rage said...

Not alone...just saw the other 2 guys...and that they did Roadhouse!!!! woooooooo

BlacknGold66 said...

I seriously hope you aren't trying to get Dan those episodes in hopes of having your way with his sister.

That territory has already been claimed my dear friend.


HUZAAH!

Max Power said...

Has anyone heard if Francois is going to be playing with the Nailers next season?

Rage said...

DAMN YOU bng, damn you to HELLLL!!!! lol

Rage said...

In case anybody's bored....

Interesting

Max Power said...

Its bad enough that all your shit's wet. It sucks when the storm is taking a 3rd swipe at you. Men with bullshit degrees are telling you its going to rain another 30 inches. When you thought it couldn't get any worse you find out its not safe to leave your house

dying alive said...

I vastly prefer Mike to Joel. There, I said it. Mike is a lot meaner than Joel. I like Bill Corbett better than Trace Beaulieu as Crow for the same reason.

@ max - I thought Francois was going to be coaching somewhere?

Rage said...

@d.a.-I think you've got it all backwards imho....just sayin

Maria said...

@ rage, I love Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog. Neil Patrick Harris is the man. I sat through all of Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay just to see this part.

jefe penguino said...

mark spitz, phelps swallows.

woooo.

dying alive said...

Meh, the Mike vs. Joel thing can be argued forever and never settled. I just think Mike is funnier and he hosts all of my top five episodes.

Dan said...

maria - you sure that just wasn't his way of copping a feel?

mst3k bit torrents take FOREVVVVVVVVVVVVVER that website makes it a bit less painful though

redwings - i've heard a few updates on howard stern of all places, it's been a while, but the last i heard so far, so good, he's still working and everything.

Rage said...

@dying alive....that is true, but I get a more laid back "coned up" feeling from Joel, if you know what I mean

@maria: DR. Horrible=strange awesomeness

re: Harold&Kumar 2: I get that same thing every time i see Hershey's kisses...lol

Dan, you're such a hug-ruiner. I don't think Rossi was trying to cop a feel. Like the Turks, he has no use for me.

@d.a.- sweeet link...you don't want my sister, but I'd let you hug my fat black lab for that!!!Thanks!!

Dan said...

he's got "creeper" written all over his forehead. if you need to talk, we're here for ya.

i need to look into this dr. horrible thing.

dying alive said...

I love dogs. I'll take it.

Rage said...

@dan...creeper? who?

Rage said...

@da...gotta be careful...I named her Beano for a good reason

BlacknGold66 said...

I failed to give a kudos to the Staff for the little Chappelle Show joke inserted into today's post.

Solid. (with a fist in the air)

Dan said...

d.a. - thanks! i can really also only offer my dog. it's a bichon, but he weighs like 30 pounds.

i saw the old post maria, you just had to go and change it up.

Maria said...

Dan, I know. I'm a pain. But I couldn't pass up the Turk reference. I believe you're calling Rossi a creeper? You're right. Also, watch Dr. Horrible. You won't regret it. The ending is sad though.

Dan said...

rob rossi, at home

Maria said...

Oh God Dan. I'm glad today is my last day, because otherwise every time I saw Rossi I would see that instead.

Rage said...

@maria-is it just me or does he look like he would lick everything you touched? There's a happy cinematic for your day...

Dan said...

consider it my going away present maria! i've exposed him muhahahahaha!

johnny depp is at it again! he must be stopped!

Maria said...

You guys are really killing my last day as an intern high. Regardless, it looks like I'll be avoiding Big Ross for the rest of the day.

Rage said...

@maria-check your stuff for saliva trails...just sayin'

Dan said...

you're going to see the midget, you'll be high no matter what (get it, hahahahaha ugh nevermind..........)

Maria said...

A for effort, Dan

Max Power said...

Green Jelly is coming to town. Everybody raise your hands in the air 'cause you got free pop and chips today! YeeeaAAAH!

Max Power said...

@ dan

Those are the busted ass pirates. They don't even jack good stuff. They sell ships and what not as scrap metal. They're no better than your neighborhood friendly crack head that breaks into houses to steal the plumbing.

Dan said...

green jelly, as in "little pig, little pig, let me in" green jelly?

Max Power said...

Yes. Green Jelly as in...</a

brndlynn said...

i picked a really bad time to catch up on cblog today. lol.

Dan said...

wow, i am confused now.

Max Power said...

Sorry. I've just about lost my mind. Wrong link. Yes dan its the band your thinking of. They're coming to Mr. Smalls wich I hate but to see them in concert is second only to Gwar. Who I believe is also coming to Mr. Smalls in the near future. Meat Grinder bitches!

Victor Raison said...

WTF.

Victor Raison said...

How do you mix those links up. haha

Dan said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Dan said...

ya, i mean, one link is about a band who made a sweet lil' medley about the 3 lil' pigs. the other one is about shit. literally.

i saw my morning jacket there once, not a bad venue.

Max Power said...

atleast you have all learned a new word today. Again I appologize. Something went terribly wrong in the world of copy n' paste.

shawnawwwesome said...

That's a heck of a thing to have sitting around in the old cliboard for no reason.

brndlynn said...

max i think we all just learned more about you than we ever wanted to. its ok. we all have our little secrets :)

Dan said...

i think that officially makes max a cblog hof'er

Max Power said...

I used that as a faux link when trying to direct some fat cat in the corporate office to a company subsite. Imagine his surprise.

jared said...

Yea, the whole yellow pad issue w/ Fleury goes as follows:

Supposedly, and many of you may have heard this, he got a letter from an optician in Quebec who wrote him telling him that having yellow pads is a bad idea, as humans easily distinguish yellow (school buses, signs, etc) Furthermore, she argued, with these very flashy yellow pads, the human eye can subconsciously spot "holes" and open areas much easier.

We should look up his pre and post yellow pad records.

Victor Raison said...

Ah, cripes. That's going to give me 5 solid minutes of entertainment once I leave work and can actually laugh out loud.

Maria said...

I must have missed the c-blog hof'er discussion. Somebody explain to me what it means.

One hour until I can leave the Trib forever. I was thinking about going out with a bang. Any ideas?

Victor Raison said...

Thanks, max.

brndlynn said...

max im pretty sure it was the same surprise we all just experienced. im with dan - you just made hof in my eyes.

Dan said...

if you planned in advance you could've done the frozen shaving cream in the drawer trick. i guess you could photocopy your butt.

P.O. said...

maria

if you were a guy id tell you to drop your pants and walk out with your hands in the air... that would be hilarious

try doing to rob rossi what elaine did to the germaphobe on seinfeld.. stapler to the arm pit, keyboard across the butt, feet on his desk, etc etc

Max Power said...

Here's the Stillers fan a the olympics

Dan said...

mayhem for the office

brndlynn said...

i would not rec photocopying ur butt. as its been said before I think you'd have a stalker on your hands.

Maria said...

Yeah Brandi, I was just going to say I think Rossi would like that a little too much. He's going to be so depressed when I leave today.

P.O. said...

if the trib uses an advanced scanning solution connected to their MFPs you could scan your butt and then email it to everyone in your department... save some trees and get your point across

Dan said...

just think how much you could job rossi when he's on dve! you could call in and say:
"hi, i was an intern, he touched my butt all the time and drooled when i was by him, and it's not because he's senile!"

i am so smart! s-m-r-t!

Victor Raison said...

A band-aid for boredom:

Just a taste.

Victor Raison said...

I didn't mean for the link to start at page 12 though. Just scroll to the beginning.

Maria said...

Dan, that is such a great idea.

brndlynn said...

Random thought:
since midgets are a common topic of conversation on here who would be up for a cblog invasion of Caseys in the next few weeks?

Rage said...

@maria-if it isn't too late, send rossi and "anti-stalker" email describing his troubles with babydick(etc, etc) and just hit distribution a when sending it to him

Max Power said...

Casey's is always a good idea

Maria said...

Rossi just came to tell me goodbye. He so wants me.

I'm outta here! If you're in the South Side tonight, stop by Casey's. I'll be the short blonde girl at the bar paying Shawn to pour copious amounts of alochol into my mouth and in a very good mood because I AM NOT AN INTERN ANYMORE!

P.O. said...

RE midgets

has anyone ever been to the midget farm? its amazing

brndlynn said...

max: im thinking this is something that needs to be done.

midget farm????

BlacknGold66 said...

Dan...

I actually own a pair of pajamas that have Homer saying the "S-M-R-T!" phrase all over them.








Yeah, I wear pajamas... what of it?

eileenover said...

I was at this game. I told Dan Potash to tell the players to fight someone, so they could get a spark. No fights and we lose. People never listen to me.

eileenover said...

There is an actual midget farm?

P.O. said...

yea theres a section of Carnegie that is basically all midgets, in the area its known as the midget farm.. we used to go up there in high school and walk around and laugh our asses off.. it was unreal... after a while the midgets got wise to what all these normal bodied people were doing and started throwing shit at us as we drove past

Max Power said...

The midget farm is legendary. In my youth my tribe and I used to get baked and go to the midget farm. Police patrol there more ofter now because of midget harassment.

brndlynn said...

oh my. if i ever wandered into the midget farm i think i would just stare in amazement. this is something i may have to do.....after drinking.

eileenover said...

I think a c-blog visit to the midget farm is in order.

Rage said...

Oh c'mon!!!! Eileen is gonna think she killed cblog!!!! Hiya eileen...that may not be a good idea

Rage said...

although....a certain "reptilian" part of my mind sees the appeal of such a trip...lol

eileenover said...

Watching midgets is always a good idea!

Rage said...

but how can one observe without interacting?

Rage said...

and said interaction could end up with less than desirable results, depending on the mindset and demeanor of the cblogger involved

Rage said...

anybody wanna go running?

eileenover said...

I don't plan on interaction. I just plan on laughing harder than I ever have in my life.

Rage said...

i'll take that as a big ol' no then

Rage said...

eileen....."drive by" rudeness is hella weeeeeeeak....lol...see yinz later!

eileenover said...

Well it looks like I really did kill c-blog. Great.

sexymexyjeffy said...

@ dying alive and @ Dan

MTS3k talk? fuck where the hell was I , i live for that show in between penguin games! i watched squirm 2 nights ago, because im a fucking loser who loves mst3k! i gotta say overall that episode doesnt do inbred white trash for me, i'd go with boggy creek II and the legend continues... so wrong, but squirm does have the best short ever
"a case of spring fever"


Where does coily fit into gods plan for us?

RedWings said...

I'm a little unclear on this midget farm.

So you're telling me there's a place there in Pittsburgh that has a bunch of midget animals? You know, cows, horses pigs and whatnot? So what does a midget giraffe look like?

I may need to take that road trip from Michigan.

fleuryous said...

After countless weeks of shitty internet, I am baaaaack.

Hope you didn't miss me.

Just kidding, I know you did.

Go Pens. and I wish Ryan Whitney's foot the best.

fleuryous said...

And I see that midget talk is still embraced.

I love this place. haha

P.O. said...

redwings

its a neighborhood with a bunch of midgets living in it... its just called midget farm, there are no animals unless someone allows midgets to adopt pets

Maria said...

I think a c-blog trip to the midget farm would be a great idea. If we all go to Casey's we'd be leaving the underage kids out...this way everyone gets to partake in midget madness.

RedWings said...

P.O. said...
redwings

LOL!

But I still wanna see a midget giraffe. Preferably one singing "We represent the Lollypop Guild".

RedWings said...

@ maria... "midget madness"

LMFAO!!!

I love this thread.

Maria said...

Do you think if we all went to the midget farm and paid one enough money he/she would pour alcohol into our mouths like Shawn does at Casey's? Maybe after I leave the bar I'll head out to Carnegie and find out.

jefe penguino said...

whitney mustve further injured his foot kicking hossa out the door.

RedWings said...

Thanks, akus. I can see why you guys get liquored up before going there. That place is freaky.







But where's the midget giraffe?

M. Vanderlasser said...

We went to see Springsteen in Hershey Tuesday night and they had a special section (stage right, near the front) filled with midgets. Lots of midgets.

@akus, the garage in the picture has "RW" painted on it. Are the midgets Red Wings fans?

@bng66, be sure to post some photos of yourself in your Homer Simpson pajamas...or maybe that can be your shot for the "Men of Pensblog" calendar...

P.S. I think the guy who plays the hockey coach in the NHLN commercials is pretty funny. Is he famous in Canada or something?

P.P.S. Bruce rocked...and he did a fine encore ("Gloria") with Joe Grushecky.

RUUUUUUTUUUUUUUUU!

TheFandangler said...

I'm probably late on this one but I was up in the mountains for a few days... That comment about Fleury's pads is stupid. He looks so much better now. I use to yell about how gay and french he looked in net. "He wears those yellow homo pads so everyone knows how gay he is." When I found out he was switching to white I was so happy. He actually looked like a professional goaltender and that came with him actually playing like a professional goaltender.

He's still gay though.

Fandangler = gay

KaylaJ said...

they're running at the olympics and one guy didn't acknowledge his introduction so the announcers said "doesn't even look up, he's all business". cool!

KaylaJ said...

all business guy gets silver

eileenover said...

I love that he blew that announcer off. I've been waiting for someone to do that. These announcers are so damn annoying.

KaylaJ said...

me too eileen! they're so mean/stupid, "you've had a dream since you were a child and you've been working on this dream non stop for the past 4 years with all these challenges, yet you LOST, how does that feel?"

eileenover said...

I hate how they act like whoever wins the silver is some kind of loser. He just won a freaking Olympic medal! How about congratulating them first instead of going "What happened? What went wrong? Blah blah blah." They need to learn some tact.

Best Springsteen song ever.

This came out on Springsteen's "Magic" album last Septmeber but for some stupid reason I never bought it. I heard Randy Baumann talk about this song last year a few times, but for some stupid reason never downloaded it or even made it a point to listen to it.

Heard it last Friday on Radio Margaritaville and by the time I realized who it was, the song was more than half over. I downloaded it when I got home, burned it onto a blank disc with some other summer stuff and it hasn't left my CD player since.

2 things come to mind while watching beach volleyball:

a) who picks the music?
b) i hate the ole chant

eileenover said...

The ole chant is driving me nuts. How did all those Brazilians get there?

TheFandangler said...

Stoosh:

Thank you for reaffirming my hatred of the "Boss".
