I feel like that sometimes....

I'm thinking....

that, when I'm a billionaire; I'm going to buy a professional basketball team, a cable network, and a 24,000 square foot home. But, just to ensure I have enough money; I'm going to do a little insider trading. Because I can. Who's gonna know? I'll feel really terrible about the money I lost in fines to the NBA for criticizing the league and the refs. I gotta make my money back somehow!

Cuban is a joke. The SEC has been investigating him for two years and have now filed charges. I'm assuming they've got their "ducks in a row". Why else would they wait this long to file charges? Cuban denying all charges and saying the investigation was "a product of gross abuse of prosecutorial discretion" is an insult to, well, EVERYONE'S intelligence. That's just fancy talk for, "I think the SEC is being mean to me for no reason."


Being a sports lover, I have to say that I do enjoy having sports news at my finger-tips 24/7. But, I want to hear viable news. I don't want to hear trivial bull shit. I understand that there are umpteen different sports channels that need to find stuff to report 24 hours a day. And they may have to fill in the gaps with speculation.

With that being said; does anyone REALLY care that McNabb wasn't aware of the NFL overtime rules? I have to admit that I find it a little weird. Like me not knowing, as a bartender, that serving someone alot of drinks may get them drunk. But, it's really apples & oranges because it's not like the out-come of the game would have been any different. They both sucked. It just drove me crazy that ESPN was all over his interview when he admitted not being aware. Ala Vince Young leaving his cell phone at home. I actually saw a tag-line on ESPN1 (not 2, News, or U) before I left work that said, "Are we making too much of McNabb not knowing?" That tells me they know they're making too much of it.


I'm very happy my Tigers posted against Duke. I'm happy the 3rd-string and the Water-boys got to play. I'm happy we're still bowl-eligible. I'm just plain happy. Here's hoping we can pull it out against Virginia & USC.

"So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice. "

It's an acronym. If you are in-the-know; you know that this is a very happy day for me! The expansion for WOW came out at 12am. And I pre-bought.

So...........I show up at Best Buy this evening to cash in my pre-bought receipt for WOW. The Xpac. All the displays are empty. I'm actually behind the game because I was not at Best Buy last night for their Grand Sale. At midnight.

I couldn't find what I was looking for; so, I tackled a guy with a Best Buy uniform and asked him, "What's up? No WOW WOTLK?" I am waving around my receipt like a crazy person. "I Have Dibs, Goddamnit!!"

This man is Tired.....He is SO tired.

He has been dealing with crazy-ass WOW freaks all day. He has nothing left for me. Except that little WOW xpac in the box underneath the display case. Which I snatched out of his hands like it was on FIRE!

Thank You God......'s OVER!

I am so fucking happy the election is over. If you live in the DC area; I'm sure you can relate. And if you work in a bar in the DC area; I'm sure you can read my mind.

I have suffered through 2 years of people trying to bait me. Trying to get me involved in political discussions that I did not want to be in. I have made it very clear that I do not discuss politics over my bar. Yet, people still tried. And it drove me crazy! I knew that as soon as I gave any idea to someone about which side I was on; it was going to cost me. Cost me money. Someone that doesn't agree with my political views is not going to tip me. That's why I just don't discuss it.

And it's been funny. My regulars have been trying to find out how I voted. Every time someone asks, I tell them I "wrote in" someone. And I give a different name each time: Axl Rose, Hunter Thompson, Joe Perry, Cecil Mills, Jack Kerouac. I'm thinking they'll eventually stop asking.
