Last week I went wild and had 3 posts, but I figured I’d calm down some this week and get caught up on some lost sleep. To start off the week, I ended up getting less than 4 hours of sleep on Sunday night going into work on Monday. Yes, only my own fault, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I usually try to make it up on the weekends as everyone knows by now. Last Thursday, I went to bed at 2:30 AM and woke up at 6:00 AM for work on Friday. I didn’t go to bed until 7:00 the next morning, so I was pumped about that. Needless to say, I was out quick when my head hit the pillow. If it’s like this now, what kind of bum am I going to be in the summer? Should be fun.
First I’d like to give some big props to a buddy of mine who sent me some Bobby “The Brain” Heenan action. In one of my recent posts, I had a pic of Heenan in there and his opinion on the Angle/HBK match from WrestleMania. The buddy in question here is Robbie and as soon as he saw that he gave me a pretty good story about how he met The Brain in person and still has the autographed pic. I’ll even post that one right in this very Blog for your enjoyment. I’ve seen and met a good bit of wrestlers over the years, but Heenan I’ve never seen before, so Robbie has me beat on that legend. Anyways, here is the pic:
It seems pretty weird now that my Celtics are done for the season. They got waxed by the Pacers in Game 7 to the tune of a 27-point loss at HOME. It was so bad that the Celts’ home fans booed the team off the court and deservedly so. We were playing bad in the 1st half, but still were only down 3 at halftime. That’s when the wheels came off the boat. What happens now? Walker is a free agent and he’s my boy, but I doubt they give him the crazy money he’s after. We’ll see on that one. I want him back though. Also, our leader as far as handling the ball, Gary Payton is a free agent. He’s older, but he surprised me a lot with his play this year. He was able to calm Pierce down from being a huge gunner. I still think Pierce is overrated, but maybe I’m wrong on that. He’s good though, don’t get me wrong. I figure we have a good bit of changes to make, but I’m real excited to see the emergence of stud-to-be Big Al Jefferson. Some of the prettiest post moves I’ve seen in quite a while and he’s still just a kid. Not to mention he loves to rebound. Imagine that concept.
So me and Cork roll to Denny’s on Saturday night. After rolling around at Wal-Mart before that, getting some stuff for Mother’s Day, we debated whether or not to hit up Denny’s. I was craving McDonald’s and Cork wasn’t really hungry. Denny’s and McD’s are across from each other, so I just whipped it into Denny’s. Good choice, because I was in the mood for about 3 of those greasy cheeseburgers that would haunt me the next day. Denny’s though, you talk about madness. We get there around 3:30 or so and it’s just insane. The bars closed up for the night, so the drunk crowd shows up and it’s really packed. Me and Cork were the only ones of the bunch not mangled. After being around this group, I now see why I never go out and hit up the bars, just not my idea of fun. Anyways, the restaurant seemed to be split. You had your group of diehard rednecks to where I said it looks like we got there real early in the morning before they all went hunting. Then you had your group of thugs and their gangsta chicks. This one fatty redneck fired up some thug and it was on. Everyone was cussing each other, one of the waitresses was telling people off, people complaining about service even though it wasn’t bad, and whatever else. One thug was jealous that these thug chicks were talking to this whitey redneck so he tried to get them to go back to their seats. That didn’t work, so he goes back to the booth and puts on his bling bling jewelry then comes walking back like a tough guy, no joke. This was hilarious. So he rolls over there and they end up talking a bunch of junk and nothing gets accomplished. I was telling Cork how it seemed like we were in Bizarro World. It was that much excitement. Something to see every now and then, but nothing I want to be part of. The drunk crowd isn’t for me at all.
At “work” this week I have it made. I have like 4 kids tops in my biggest class and a few I have 2 or 3. In the class, they have a Nintendo 64 setup and of course I’m getting in on that action. I played a bunch of Mario Kart 64 today and got paid for it. That’s what I’m talking about. Gotta love it.
On RAW, it was the Semifinals of the Gold Rush Tournament to show who is the #1 Contender to Batista’s World Title. This week Kane went against Benoit and beat him. Why do this? Maybe I’m missing something here. Our other match was the main event and that was HBK against Edge, which was a pretty good match. Edge ends up getting the pin by using his briefcase. We all see what’s going on, in that we could have Lita turning on Kane to join Edge. Get Kane a new character or get him off TV. He can be funny if they let him do something, but not with Lita ruining things, plus he has about 3 moves total. Next week we’ll have a good one in Christian facing off against the legendary Ric Flair. We also have the Finals of the Gold Rush and also Jericho and Benjamin team up to face Hassan and Daivari.
I just finished up the Dusty Rhodes book and it was great. It was hard to put down and I finished that one in no time. Highly recommended for the wrestling fans. I’ve already got a new book and this one is on Wilt Chamberlain from 2004. It’s titled Wilt: Larger Than Life. I started this one on Monday and it’s a 400 page book. I’m already through about 140, so it’s that good. Some of the stories in this one are just mind boggling. Wilt couldn’t have been a real person. He was like a superhero.
A few new CDs this week. One I’ve listened to already and another I haven’t. The first is Common’s new one, simply titled Be. This is the one I haven’t listened to, but Common has a smooth flow and he’s labeled as intellectual rap if you’re into that. He’s not what you’re thinking of as far as being rap, but he’s worth checking out. The other one is Memphis Bleek’s new one, 534. This one isn’t bad, but it’s not great either. Just decent is what I’ll say on that. For the Jay-Z fans, he has a song all to himself on there, but I’m not a fan of his. M.O.P. is on there though as well as Young Gunz (new CD soon too), so you can’t really go wrong with that.
3 Quick Thangs:
1. I’m drooling over the ECW One Night Stand Pay Per View commercial. God himself, Paul Heyman, uses one of my favorite lines of his that he used to hype up ECW PPVs back in the day: “The rudest.., the lewdest.., the crudest!”
2. Thanks to Kasher of #basketball for finding this and posting it on Lobstah’s porn board. Here’s a page of a quality Latin chick with all kinds of gangsta in her. The bigger the better back there. Girls like this don’t exist. I feel strongly on this. Anyways, check this girl out at: http://perso.wanadoo.es/fotos_keyra/culo01.htm
3. 84 degrees today? Ugh. Too hot for me already.
