Tiger Woods, ambassador of sports (except for hockey)

“I don’t think anyone really watches hockey anymore.” – Tiger Woods

Allow us, for a moment, to point out the subtle difference between hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and golf superstar Tiger Woods, pictured here with an even bigger icon, Diamond David Lee Roth. Gretzky was asked in a press conference back in March about Woods, and said that he never thought he’d see an athlete dominate like Michael Jordan did — until Tiger hit his stride.

“He’s the greatest athlete I’ve ever seen,” he said. And when pressed by a cynical reporter that golfers may not exactly fit the mold of an athlete like, say, even the most physically maligned hockey player does, Gretzky rushed to the defense of an entire sport whose participants range from senior citizens on a Saturday morning in South Florida to children trying to get a ball into a clown’s mouth. “You ever tried to golf? You better be a good athlete if you try to golf.”

How does Tiger choose to repay that respect, during the NHL’s moment in the spotlight?

“I don’t think anyone really watches hockey anymore.”

The full quote came from a news conference at Oakland Hills Country Club in Michigan yesterday, where Tiger appeared via satellite. He was asked his thoughts about Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals. He chuckled, and then answered:

 

“I don’t really care,” he said with an impish smile. “It’s all about the Dodgers. I don’t think anyone really watches hockey anymore.”

 

What’s rather amusing is that this wasn’t a hard-hitting question from a Detroit sports reporter; it was a softball lobbed by Julius Mason, the PGA of America’s senior director of communications. When it appeared Tiger would be less than gracious to the sport currently capturing the imagination of a place called Hockeytown, Mason tried to end the answer by saying Woods was “politically correct as always and that’s what we …” before Tiger added his candid assessment of hockey’s popularity.

Not even PR flackery could curb Tiger’s hunger to diss the game.

The NHL addressed his comments in a general way. Our first inclination was to label this as some clever NIKE brainwashing: Convincing one of its biggest brand names to ignore how awesome hockey really is in order to go after the NHL and Reebok. But wouldn’t the EA Sports brainwashing counteract that?

Perhaps Tiger is still bitter about the demise of the All-Star Café with Gretzky.

The bottom line is that Tiger Woods downgraded a sport that’s been good to him, from charity appearances at golf tournaments to fans asking about when “hockey’s Tiger Woods” will arrive. As they say among champions: Act like you’ve been there, Tiger. You’re already the guy who gets bigger headlines for not playing in a tournament than the NHL gets for playing an all-star game. No need to rub it in.

As for you, Gretzky: Time to get Tiger in the arena for a playoff game, so the puckhead conversion can begin and we can put this all behind us.

“PR experience” does not mean “Foreign policy experience!”

Just because you travel to a foreign country and schmooze with the big wigs in said country, their children, take photos of the schmoozing, and write a book about it, does NOT mean that you have foreign policy experience. It means you have ass-kissing experience. Talking with a foreign minister’s wife about where you got your dress, or where she shops with her kids is not outlining how the US Government will be interacting with said country.


What’s worse is that this photo is undoctored

It wouldn’t bother me so much except that Hillary is using that to say “look what I have that Obama and McCain don’t.” Then, to top it off, she lies about how it happened? How did she think her little embellishment of the truth wouldn’t get out?

By saying what she did: “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” She would have us believe that the US Military put the first lady, and US citizens at risk of being killed just for a PR opportunity? Wouldn’t it make more sense to, oh, I don’t know, LAND SOMEWHERE ELSE? or if there was “sniper fire,” turn around and head back to the base you came from? It’s the first lady, not an Army unit, or a food chopper. They can cancel a PR trip. “No, no” says Hillary “We HAD to land and take photos. Many, many photos even at the risk of bullets zipping past.”


“Seriously Barak, the bullets were like PEEOOOOM!”

Do you realize that if she is citing that event as an example of her “foreign policy” experience, then Sinbad can also claim that he has foreign policy experience? (He was riding in the same chopper.) She’s saying that Sinbad risked getting killed to negotiate financial, social, and/or military interaction between Bosnia and the US?

Now she’s trying to backpedal from her little faux pa by saying: (this is EXACTLY what she said by the way) “I went to 80 countries, you know. I gave contemporaneous accounts, I wrote about a lot of this in my book. You know, I think that, a minor blip, you know, if I said something that, you know, I say a lot of things – millions of words a day – so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement.”

You know? You know?. . . Well, I know she has a lot of staff members looking over her speeches. You’re telling me she just blurted that out? You’re telling me that all her statements aren’t carefully choreographed for the media?

Hey look, the sun… I have turned my pillow over 37 and one half times I have gotten up to drink a glass of water 7 times and due to that I have gotten up another 4 times to take a piss. I look in the mirror every time I go to the bathroom and it is like I can actually see myself falling apart. 3 hours until I have to be at work… I think I might have fallen asleep for a moment at around 5 am or so I cant be sure but one second I was lying there on the fresh cold side of the pillow and the next  moment my pillow was hot and my arm was asleep. 7:53am… UGH… 8:37am SHIT, I better get up If I somehow did manage to fall asleep right now I am absolutely positive that my alarm could not wake me. 1 hour until work… Where the hell is my other sock, this is freakin bullshit every last one of my socks is dirty minus one?

Stingray jumps out of water in Florida Keys, hitting and killing Michigan boater


Like something out of a Sci-fi story!

I think the photo shows it all. the thing is HUGE. you have something that big jumping out of the water at your head, I’m not surprised the poor lady is dead!

I like the comment in the last part of the article:
“Rays jump to escape a predator, give birth and shake off parasites,”said Lynn Gear, supervisor of fishes and reptiles at Theater of the Sea in Islamorada. “They do not attack people.”

I don’t know about THAT!

Gray Haired Beauties

OK, I think I’m having an Oprah moment here.
Time magazine featured an article last month or so about gray haired women and how there is a large majority of women who are secure and happy with their gray hair. I guess even the fashion world is taking notice and have given us sound-bytes saying “Gray is chic”


Would she seem as gorgeous without her gray?

There are a few women around the office who take care of themselves, some have their curves, some don’t; who have gray hair. I didn’t think much of it at first but after a while I noticed that it does give them a certain character and maybe it’s the whole “older woman” thing but to be honest, I don’t think they would be as sexy without their gray hair. I’m not trying to degrade them or belittle them by calling them “sexy.” I use the term with extreme reverence to their age, (young or old, yes some are prematurely gray, how hot is that?!) gender and for some of them, their life experience. Indeed, a few of them are in various levels of management and when they’re spoken of, it’s in the highest respect/regard, they just also happen to be VERY handsome women.


Young Woman with Gray Hair
(Check out the link; interesting story about this pic)

Now, I realize that there are ladies and some guys out there who freak out when they see gray. Let me tell you from an admirer’s perspective; it’s not a big deal. In fact, to me, it’s a little disappointing when one day you see someone with some gray, and the next day it’s a completely different color. For example: one of the ladies in the office I was talking about has this really naturally curly hair. She parts it on the side and has it a little longer than shoulder length. She wears these small frame glasses that fit the shape of her face well, and maybe this is a guy thing with the glasses, but they make her look really cute. Where she parts it, she has this gray shock that only makes the front part of her hair gray. (and only halfway down the total length) The rest of her hair is a light brown to blond. It looks really cool the way her gray seems to frame the top part of her face. She had it this way for as long as I can remember. Then, one day it was ALL light brown. It completely changed the dynamic of her appearance! The color looked natural and matched the rest of her hair, but she really didn’t look the same! I happened to be working on her computer at the time (I’m in I.T. at the office) and overheard her telling a co-worker that a “Friend” of hers told her that she should do something about it so she decided to dye it. Thankfully she didn’t like the way it looked and she reverted back to what I described above. Her female co-workers agreed that she looked cuter with her gray. I would show you some pictures of these lovely ladies, but I can’t think of a way to get said pictures without seeming like a perv or having HR called over to my cubicle. I suppose I could claim I’m writing a book on the subject, but I’m not. I’m just blogging about it!


Someone already tackled this subject anyway.

This becomes almost like the breast implant argument: (Disclaimer: I’m not trying to woo anyone out there, I’m just being honest. Besides, I have a girlfriend!) for me, I’d rather see women how they are naturally, how God intended them. I get turned off knowing that even a part of the girl is fake. If a guy needs you to have bigger breasts, maybe you don’t need the guy. Looks are fleeting. That’s why most old men go after young women; because the men are shallow, self centered, and can’t appreciate a good personality. At the risk of sounding like a “Curves” commercial; If you want implants, get them for YOURSELF, not some guy. Dye your hair for YOU, not for how people see you.

On the fence about going gray? check out this gallery of Gray sirens.

Stephen Horner is a bastard

Either that or he’s flaming gay.*
This guy got his panties in a wad because he was denied a voucher for a free Colorado Rockies ladies night game. Now the hippies at the Colorado Civil Rights Division say there’s probable cause for gender discrimination. Next, there’s going to be state-ordered mediation between the Rockies and this douche bag.


The Colorado Civil Rights Division

Can’t someone explain to him what “Ladies Night” means instead? Do we really have to waste time on this loser who has no idea what having his civil rights violated means?

*He’s supposedly an Anti-feminist, but is likely a flaming gay. Now, I’m not judging him for being gay, I don’t hate gay people, it’s just a lifestyle that is against my PERSONAL beliefs. I don’t try to shove them down people’s throats (that often.) Live and let live, I say. Except when he starts scaring the women away with his self-righteous-pompus-ass-hole-who-has-nothing-better-to-do attitude.  There’s an article on The Tribune about it and the guy who commented on it put it best: “Does he not know they do ladies nights so more women go, which attracts men? It’s sort of like cutting off your nose to spite your face.”

He won a similar ruling against night clubs in Denver because they had a ladies night. The guy needs to find a girlfriend or get his ass kicked by feminists.

He’s probably the reason they got rid of the ladies programs for the Rockies, the Nuggets, The Avalanche and the Broncos. Programs that were set up to show women how the various sports work, so they can enjoy it like most men do. Does he not want women watching sports? Wouldn’t it be nice if both sexes could enjoy something on a common level? Not to Stephen Horner, he was turned down one too many times by women and crying himself to sleep one night decided to make them all pay. The problem is, he’s pissing off the men too.

I think we should turn him into a black person or a hispanic person and time warp him back to early 1950’s America in the south so he can see first-hand what it means to have his civil rights violated. Not getting a Ladies night voucher because he’s a GUY is not a violation.

Turkey Launches Ground Operation in Iraq

I saw this headline on The Tribune’s website and the first image that came to my mind was something like this:


You don’t want none of this!

I realized however that the headline didn’t say “A” Turkey Launches Ground Operation in Iraq. My mistake. . .

Almost like a canary in a coal mine; a turkey in a tank? No?

Why the hell did this drop off the radar?

Bird Flu totally hasn’t gone away, and I don’t think anyone is really looking into it too well. It sounds dumb to say but there is the chance that this disease could turn into a pandemic everyday. The way Bush handled Katrina, I hope that shit happens after we have a new president (and that that person is competent).

You want to know how serious it still is. Click me.

“This is so unusual, and I don’t know whether or not it’s a lesson from God,” Karim said.

It snowed in Baghad today.  And people took a snow day, a chance to play and have fun, and for a brief moment be children.  Such a simple thing, and it brings so much joy.  A part of that makes me really happy, because it shows how resiliant people are.  In spite of all the war and all the fighting and all the bloodshed, they can still find joy in a snowball fight.  One the other hand it makes me sad, because tomorrow there will be a bomb, or a shooting, or something that will destroy that joy. 

“I don’t know whether or not it’s a lesson from God”

I think it would be.  Take joy where you can find it and don’t let go of that no matter what.

Let’s end this fucking war now.

Virtual Dogfighting

I think that there are very few people who would openly condone dogfighting.  The sport takes place behind closed doors, owners consenting to the brutality and the reverence that is taken for the fallen soldier.  We act like there is a minor subset of the population that is as viscous as these animals.  Yet we are drwn to the carnage, like flies to shit.  As long as we didn’t participate in it then it is ok to view it.  We play video games where we simulate murder and terrorism.  Why not dog fighting.  I want to feed my virtual dog, reminiscent of a tomagotchi; ball bearings, and gunpowder.  Have him wear a 50 lb. chain around its neck and then pit it against a friends dog on x box live.  People need to realize that it is their fascination with such connoted subcultural phenomenon, that keeps people fighting animals and putting it on you tube.  You would have thought that the worst thing that happened to Michael Vick aka Ron Mexico was a case of herepes.  Hopefully the prison he is sent to has a very low percentage of herpes patients, because if its high…you know the motto, you cant get herpes twice. FUCK THAT

Iranians have boats?

After seeing the footage of the speedboats whirling around in water, i though that perhaps i was at sea world. I mean they do have speedboats but do Iranians. I am only thankful that there are smarter people around the dumb one who actually makes the decisions. If we had not checked all sources there would have been a recurrence of the Gulf of Tonkin. It sucks that a guy like Amenijad; gotcha. Thank heavens he didnt get us so good which would probably have thrown us into a full scale world war. But where the fuck did they get those boats. Possibly Master Craft and Ameninijad made and an alliance so that after the US Blew the fuck out of the continent, they would divide up the resorts among themselves surrounding the crater left behind.

Oil hit’s $100 a barrel.

So Gold and Oil destroyed their record high’s today.  So as a consequence the stock market is throwing up all over the place in a kind of new years hangover.  What irritates me the most about this is that gas prices are going to continue to go up now (after a small downward trend) and honestly I wouldn’t be surprised to see $4 a gallon gas this summer.  All the oil companies will still be making money hand over fist, the govenment will still be stalled on forcing higher gas milage for cars and finding more sources of renewable energy, and I will still live in a city with horrible public transportation.  Blah!

Benazir Bhutto

Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated today.  A suicide bomber shot her then detonated himself.  Though it is sad for her friends, family and followers, I have very little pity for her.  As a leader of an opposition party in a country that is currently in a state of martial law she has done nothing but flaunt herself in a way that effectively begs people to try and kill her.

First example, on the eve of her return these preparations were made:

More than 20,000 police have been assigned to protect Bhutto and her entourage as she makes her way from the Karachi airport to the mausoleum of Pakistan’s founder on Thursday. Snipers will occupy rooftops and flyovers, and bomb disposal units have already started sweeping the route. It’s a journey that usually takes less than an hour. Police and party organizers are expecting an ordeal that could last up to eighteen hours, as fans coming as far away as Kashmir, in the country’s northeast, block her passage in an attempt to get a glimpse of their rehabilitated leader. Bhutto, who was greeted by a million-strong crowd when she returned from exile in 1986 to take up her father’s position as party leader, will be riding in a specially designed bulletproof glass container mounted on a trailer. It’s kind of like the pope-mobile, says PPP information secretary Sherry Rehman, “only without a top.”

  –TIME

So when she gets to Pakistan she spends hours in a crawling motorcade until a bomb goes off.  Her response:

Bhutto also wanted the government to focus on identifying the “sponsors and financers” of the terrorists who carried out the strike on October 19 that left 140 persons dead.

“It is my responsibility to take risks for the country. To save Pakistan, we need to protect democracy,” she said while addressing her second press conference since the attack at her home–Bilawal House. Bhutto said nothing will prevent her from reaching out to the people.   – Access My Library

An admirable sentiment, but holy crap, it doesn’t get much dumber than that.  I understand wanting to be in touch with “your people,” but you can’t single out “your people” from the people that want to assassinate you.  And why give them the extra time to plan.  For example when she first arrived in Pakistan, she was in the motorcade moving through the city for so long (literally hours), moving at a snails pace, that someone could have taken the time to build, strap on and detonate the bomb.  The bomber didn’t need to have a plan, he could have made the plan as he went and not run out to time.  The only thing that stopped the procession was the bomb.

BhuttoSo with that in mind she takes even more risks.  I understand that she wants to be this figure of dissent and vocal opposition.  But there is a smart way and a dumb way to do that.  She takes the dumb way.  Standing on top of cars, walking into throngs of people.  And now, that has gotten her dead.  Honestly it was only a matter of time.  And in a lot of ways she is no different than the suicide bomber.  She is willing to die for her cause and in a lot of ways it almost seemed like she wanted to die for her cause.

So now what remains to be seen is what effect her Martyrdom will have on the political climate of Pakistan.  The place is already a hot bed of political and religious riots.  What I wonder now, is how the Bush administration, who has sunk billions into Pakistan, is going to respond.  My guess is another war.

The part that really gets me in this whole situation is all of the people surrounding these situation that have been killed, just for supporting Bhutto.  In the first bombing when she got to Pakistan, there were 140 other people that died, in the bombing that led to her death today they are reporting that at least another dozen people died.  Seems a little sad that people who just want to support a political cause, have to take the same risks Bhutto did, whether they wanted to or not.

Nice one Hilary

Comments were closed on this blog that I lifted this story from, but once again, some evedince that Hilary would be the same thing as Bush but with a bush, savvy.  Hilary sent out pledge cards that said, “I, [blank], pledge to support Hilary Clinton at my precinct caucus on January 14th, 2008.”  Sucks that the caucus is on the 3rd.  What a dope!

Man of the Year.

So time magazin nominated Vladamir Putin “Man of the Year.”  And man are they catching a ton of shit for it.  Mitt Romney said that it “disgusted” him.  Here is the thing, “Person of the Year,” acording to Richard Stengel the managing editor of Time, isn’t a prize or an aweard, it is just a recognition of someone that has done something very significant in the world, that will effect the course of history.  Joseph Stalin has been person of the year, Bill Clinton and Kenneth Starr shared it during the Monica Lewenski thing, so was the Ayatollah Khomeini, and a guy you may have heard of before, Adolph Hitler.  At the very least Putin has some redeming value, in that he has restructured Russia into a country that is actually functioning on a global scale again.

Terrorism Insurance

The Federal Terrorism Insurance plan has been extended for seven more years.  First of all, this is something that I totally didn’t even know existed.  But now it is being extended for 7 more years.  The jyst of the the insurance is that if your building gets blown up by terrorists, this insurance covers that loss.  Why is this necessary you ask?  Because in the wake of 9/11 insurance companies decided that they will no longer cover losses caused by terrorist attacks, it costs to much money.  So the government picked up the job of insuring for this (much like they do for flood insurance, just ask the people in New Orleans). 

Now originally the bill that was voted on would have extended the insurance for 15 more years and lowered the threshold for the amount of damage that a claim would be paid on, but Bush said he would veto the bill if it included those terms (big surprise there, what doesn’t he veto).  But the reasoning is my favorite, he thinks that terrorism insurance should be moved into the private market.

I think this, I think flood insurance should be given back to the private market.  Because a flood doesn’t target anyone, it is an indiscriminate act of God, just like the other things that insurance should cover, like a fire, or a tornado.  That kind of stuff.  But terrorism has a target, our country.

The target of the World Trade Center attacks, America.  Why?  Because the policies of our government have turned the world against us.  People don’t like America because we are meddling, pushy and rude when it comes to foreign polic.  We want things our way, and if you don’t like it, tough, we’ll wipe you off the face of the earth.  So we become a target for terror attacks.  Doesn’t it stand to reason that the government, the people that dictate foregin policy, should pick up the tab for the terror attacks that their foregin polcy causes.  I think so, what do you think?

White House Fire.

A building that houses the offices of the vice presedient is on fire this morning.  It is one of those things that really makes you wonder about the current administration.  The last time there was a fire at the white house  was during the war of 1812, and somehow the idiot that is in there now allowed it to happen again.  Sure Bush probably isn’t directly responsible, but I just have a hard time reconciling the fact that he is such an idiot with the fact that there is a fire there for the first time in almost 200 years.

Proud Mary

So Ike Turner died. So I dug into my CD collection and found a live version of Proud Mary that I haven’t listened to in a long time. Mother fucking brilliant. So it got me thinking about how people are really judged.

If you don’t know, Ike Turner was an amazing songwriter and producer in the really early days of rock and roll and R&B. But what is he really remembered for, “I only beat you because I love you.” He may or may not have been a “good man,” but should one time period in his life really define him. I guess that is really sad to me, and really disheartening. I have a past full of shit like this (not wife beating, but dig deep enough, and there is some bad shit back there), and I really hope that when I die, I’m remembered for doing some good, instead of the evil that I threw into the world.

What do you think? Should people be judged for the good or the bad? Or can you only find the real heart of a person by looking at the whole?

Just thinking about this a lot today. Also if you like Tina Turner, James Brown, that kind of hyped up rythym and blues review shows, ala Blues Brothers. Then you have to check out Sharon Jones.

You have to love the nanny state.

Weapons of Mass (Steak) DestructionSo seriously a 10 year old girl was arrested and faces a felony for bringing a steak knife to school for lunch.  I mean seriously the school officals even said that she didn’t brandish it or threatean anyone with it.  And yet they still felt the need to call the cops, and since they couldn’t get a hold of her parents, the police took her to jail.  And even though they talked a lot about how they treated her nicely, and didn’t treat her like a criminal, she is still suspended from school for ten days and facing a felony weapons charge.

What the hell!  Is common sense really dead in this nation.  She had a steak, and a steak knife, seems kind of like a no brainer to me.  But nope, it is weapon, because all ten year old girls weaponize silverware.  A ten year old boy, I can see a problem there, maybe.  Just fucking dumb.  If my daughter ever gets arrested for something like this, I’m going to flip the hell out.
