And I seem to remember that Billy Packer said something about this being 34 years he has done the final.... After listening to him and his sidekick emote about free throws and pressure..... Well, let me just say that it is time for him to retire. We don't need that shit. These, after all, are just kids who are doing something they will remember forever..... I mean no pressure there, right Billy P??
Hmmm, where did I learn "pissy mood...?" I think it was from a Brit bud in Dallas who said on 9/11. "Well, that puts me in a pissy mood." A masterful understatement, but then this was a guy who described WWII as a "bit of a go..." He also referred to Canada as that "Great Theme Park Up North" and said that Canada got its name because a bunch of guys were saying, "C, eh, N, eh, D, eh..." We had a branch in Montreal. I will leave out his descriptions of that group....
It continued Tuesday while listening to Glen Beck complain about loony conspiracy theorists and scare tactics and then telling us the economy is going into a depression and then telling us to buy gold.... Hey Glen! Love you bro, but don't you think that is somewhat of a conflict of interest??
It continued with finding out that the BBC's environmental reporter, see my post, couldn't stand up to some one who's chief claim to fame appears to be that he is a commentator on a Global Warming comment board on Yahoo.
I have several phrases that the reporter's actions bring to mind. Hero. Nerves of steel.... none of these are among them.
Then we had the handlers of Hussein's wife moving minorities around so that whites may be seen....... About 50 years later and blacks are still being pushed to the back of the bus...Man, that is just so wrong...so dishonest...
And then we had the standard insult to McCain, and our miliatry:
“McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit,” Rockefeller told the newspaper, which published the article on the interview Tuesday.
“What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues,” he is quoted saying.
Leaving aside that attack bombers don't attack from 35,000 feet and laser guided weapons weren't around, I can't help but opine:
Jay, as someone who once had to sign an agreement that I would participate in using nuclear weapons if they were ordered used.... well trust me. I knew what would happen if that occurred and McCain knew that people were being killed. Jay good buddy, it just happens in war. The issue is, do you want Americans killed or the other side's citizens killed. Take your time, Jay. It isn't a trick question.
Rockefeller offered an apology today to McCain. Note he doesn't include any other military people. Guess he didn't want to be one upped by Dick Durbin.
“While we differ a great deal on policy issues, I profoundly respect and appreciate his dedication to our country, and I regret my very poor choice of words,” he said.
And West Virginia has elected him how many times??? Gesh.
I think the expression was "West By God Virgina." It has now become. "Good God, West Virgina."
Of course Hussein remains silent. That's what old line Chicago mob bosses do.
And we have SF doing what they do best.
SAN FRANCISCO — The city of San Francisco has started an advertising push with a very specific target market: illegal immigrants. And while the advertisements will come in a bundle of languages — English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Vietnamese — they all carry the same message: you are safe here.
I must remember to never visit them again. Besides, the poker and Mexican food is better in LA.
Of course the Lady Vols won number 8, and rather easily. Stanford was supposed to be poised to administer the coup de grace. Oh well, ESPN, disappointment is part of life...
And on the garden front my onions, cabbages and bell pepper plants are thriving. I have planted nothing else since Pope Algore's Global Warming is still fleeing from Global Cooling and rain, rain, rain..
Later dear chums.
