Amazing Things I've Seen This Week...

1) A guy at Wal-Mart wearing a zip up jacket that wasn't zipped up. Why is this a big deal? Well, he was wearing no shirt underneath. While Sacramento is definitely not that cold during the winter, it's definitely not a place where you can just do that and be comfortable, so the obvious connection is that "The Situation" is now influencing teenagers on the opposite side of the US.

2) The Bears winning in overtime against the Vikings on Monday Night Football. By far my best experience all year as a fan. Unfortunately, this game is meaningless and only gives me hope that Jay Cutler can be better next year along with the Bears (bad news: The Packers are going to be very good for a long time.)

3) I've tried to see Avatar three times, and still haven't seen it. Granted, they have been lackluster efforts, but I didn't figure that "Titanic for Nerds" would be selling out for weeks after it's release. I guess I was wrong.

4) Mario Kart Wii is one cheating-ass video game. Seriously. Why am I always in first going into the last turn of any track then get hit with a Blue Shell, then a lightning, then a Pow, then a Red Shell and all of a sudden I'm in 11th. Some good ol' controller throwing is definitely in order when playing this game.

That's it. There might be a few more average blog entries, but I'm not promising anything. Remember, I'm playing NEW YEARS EVE at THE BOXING DONKEY IN ROSEVILLE. No cover, so if you don't have extravagant plans and want to hang out in Roseville, then make sure you come out!

That was a pretty entertaining game last night. I can't be the only one that hates Favre even more when he is wearing that ridiculously think stocking cap that is way too big. I hate that man so much.

there was a guy on my bus wearing a leather jacket, holding onto the overhead handrail. Which lifted his jacket to reveal no shirt and a gaping gut. it was unsettling, but hard to look away...

G$- if you want to start an Anti-Favre Fan Club, I'll be one of the founding members.

Rae- your post made me throw up in my mouth a little.
