No Hockey....

I am a hockey fan. By fan, I mean fanatic. Semi-pro, Pro, Street, I'll watch it all. My team..... The Dallas Stars. I was born there, I was raised there, I am a Rangers fan, Cowboys Fan, but my passion is hockey. I even paid several hundred dollars to rent a car, drive to Canada, and see Dallas beat the Vancouver Canucks. I still have the ticket.
Then, the players union and the owners started in the typical bullshit. I figure, no prob. Then it escalated. No worries. Then the lock-out. I was soooo sure they would resolve this whole lockout thing before the start of the season. I am now on 2 months of no hockey.

Dallas Stars Mike Modano goes for the puck in a 5 -1 victory against the Calgary Flames on 3/05/2004.

No more hockey. What the FUCK PEOPLE?!?!? All the star players are going to Europe to play. Can you blame them? They get paid there! It's not much, but it is enough to keep up the payments on the 9000 sf house and the Jaguar, and the Hummer, and the Escalade, and the......

I don't have a solution, other than take both party's out and KICK THEM IN THE BALLS! It's not about you guys, it's about the fans damnit!

PLAYERS: Get of the pity pots, and get on the ice! Take the millions that you get and stop bitching!
OWNERS: JESUS CHRIST IN A DRESS! Isn't it enough you guys make 140 million on us? Lower the ticket cost, and quit fucking with players salaries!



So I am rummaging through Yahoo News, and I come across this...

Allow me to introduce Elaine Davidson, the most pierced woman in the world. Here she shows off some of her 2,520 piercings at the 50th anniversary of the Guiness World Records in London .
Jeez, some people will do anything to be unique. No offense Michelle C! Don't get me wrong, I have a tattoo, my ear was pierced when I was younger, (am I old enough to say that?) and my tongue is pierced now. But Jesus, how the hell can that woman go through a metal detector?

OK, what can I say.... I suck. I have been soooooo busy. For a stay at home dad, I have been gone more than I have been home. So, my blogging has suffered. Please Forgive... I am back, I have lots of bitching to do.

Well, the little wifey picked up her new "Tool" today, so it is off to the range for a bit. When we get back, I'll give you the range report, and post the newest "PIG" picture!
In the mean time, go here! I am still in shock. Washington is going to have a Republican Governor. Democraps have said that they will pay for the hand recount, but it's just typical poor sportsmanship on their part. Try again in 4 years! Not. This. Time.

Goblin Count..

I get all goose-pimply at times like this!

"We had a homeowner report that he heard noises in his garage," said Officer Ron Stevens with the Vancouver Police Department. "He went to investigate those noises and when he went into the garage, he was confronted by a male subject who was armed. The homeowner shot the subject and the subject died at the scene as a result of his injuries."

Police say that although the suspected burglar was armed with a handgun, the homeowner was not injured in the incident.

Now that's what I'm talking about! This is only about 6 miles from my house!



ALRIGHT! I BACK!! After spending more time away than at home, and getting sick, and work, I AM BACK!!!
Man, I leave you kids alone for like 5 freakin' minutes, and the whole place goes to shit! What the hell is up with this?

Vang said he removed the scope from his rifle and began firing, continuing to shoot as the group scattered. He said one of the victims, Joey Crotteau, tried to run away, but Vang chased him, got within 20 feet and shot him in the back. Crotteau, 20, was killed. Willers was wounded and was listed in fair condition Tuesday.

Authorities have said there was only one gun among the eight hunters.

Ummm, only one gun among the hunters? OK, I don't buy either story. What pisses me off, is the Hmong people are trying to turn this into a race thing. It's not. It's a trespassers thing. It's illegal, GET FUCKING USED TO IT! This ain't the jungles of Laos. You can't hunt wherever you want! I lived in New Mexico, The Land of Public Lands Enchantment, and I ALWAYS knew where I was when I was hunting. ALWAYS! Jesus, I guess the bad guy gets away this time.
Welcome back Mike...

Building stuff

I'm off today helping finish construction on a friend's new house and tomorrow I am at the fire station so blogging will be light, if at all.

Weekly Pin-up

OK, so it has now been established that I have a thing for the Pin-Up model girl. I fully believe that I was born 50 years late. The 30's, 40's and 50's were a time a look back to, and think about how times were different.
ENOUGH whining! Our Pin-up pic was shamelessly stolen borrowed from Kate over at Kate's Pin-Ups. Did you knowtice that Kate is a beautiful vuluptuous angel, and the devil chick is skinny?

Holy Cow! That girl is er...well.. Damn Near PERFECT! Even the wife said "Wow, check her out!"
