It’s time for a weekend post. I last left off on Wednesday, so it wasn’t that long of a break, but I know you’re due to hear some of the new action. I’ll try to make it sound like I did something exciting as usual, so we’ll see how that goes. I’m officially on summer break now, so that means I get to be a bum. I’m like that anyways, but this will take it to the next level of bumness if that is even a word. It will be for this space though. I don’t have any big trips planned this summer, but that doesn’t bother me. I’ll be hitting up a lot of baseball games, playing a lot of basketball, working out, video games, taking a few Masters classes, and whatever else goes on other than me being an internet junkie 24/7.
When I put something in italics on my new page style, it looks a little different and scrunched up. Oh well, I'll keep doing it that way.
On Thursday at work, it was most of the kids’ last day of school unless they had to take exams. So what that means is basically the entire school is running around the halls and doing whatever they want since there is no point to be there, but they’re required to anyways. In one class a kid brought in a bootleg copy of The Longest Yard, so of course I was interested in seeing this. I haven’t seen the first one before, but I liked this one. Maybe a little too much comedy involved. I’m usually huge on comedy movies, but in a sports movie, I think a little realism should come into mind as well. The actors in this movie is a long list of big time names as a mix of veterans and first timers: Sandler, Chris Rock, Burt Reynolds, Nelly, Michael Irvin, Stone Cold, Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Bob Sapp, James Cromwell (Mr. Skolnick in Revenge of the Nerds is what I best remember him in), Bill Romanowski, The Boz, Tracy Morgan, and I’m sure I’m missing a lot. Out of the cameo guys, Michael Irvin in my opinion did the best. He hit his role and really impressed me. Stone Cold and Nelly also did pretty good too. Goldberg I wasn’t as big on.
I’ve written in here before that I’m hooked on a lot of dating shows. I’ve even wrote about MTV Next. I spent another night watching hours of this. I didn’t have anything going on, but this is one addicting show. Some of these people have to be put on the show to act like they are. People really can’t act or dress like that out in the open can they? The trash talking and people acting cocky makes the show great. One episode had this dude who looked like Screech except he was all tatted up and had his nipples pierced. Needless to say, he was nexted in 1 minute, so he took home $1 to his name. In another, this amazon chick was acting like she gets all of these guys and gave us her tip on how to get a guy to kiss her. She gives them the line for them to smell her nose. I know, that seems weird already. Then when the guy supposedly goes to smell her nose, she reaches down and kisses them. Uhh.. I’m guessing this giant beast of a girl hasn’t had many kisses. And yet another had Sergio from Rio as the dude the chicks would date. Not the real Sergio from Rio, but every Sergio now has to be called Sergio from Rio or it wouldn’t seem right. If you’re lost on that old commercial, I’m sorry.
Last night me and Cork hit up Pittsburgh to see the Braves battle the Pirates at beautiful PNC Park. Yet again, we had another Bobblehead Night and this one was for Craig Wilson. I was shocked though that this one wasn’t a sellout. First, the Braves have a ton of fans in our area and usually are a sellout alone. And second, Bobblehead Night is what I thought was a guaranteed sellout. Nope. Anyways, it was a near sellout and we got to see an awesome pitching duel. I’d personally rather see a mean pitching duel than a homer fest. It was 0-0 going into the 9th inning and I was getting all kinds of jacked up that we’d get extra innings. Almost happened. 72-year old Julio Franco hits in the winning run in the Top of the 9th for the Braves to win. My only complaint on the trip was getting crushed in the backseat the entire trip up and down. 3 people in the back with one of them being Cork’s little cousin in a booster seat. I was all sore when I was done, but it was worth it to see baseball. For the locals, as soon as we parked at Station Square, right beside us parked was Fleece. Always good for stories, we rode the boat over and back with Fleece and his crew.
Here’s the latest 3 CDs to the collection before I wrap this piece up. The first is the latest from B.G. and it’s titled The Heart of Tha Streetz. I’ve always been into B.G. and this one is worthy of the get. Not a huge list of names on this one, but that’s fine by me. The names on this one are 5th Ward Weebie and Chopper from Da Band (or formerly Da Band). The second CD of the list is Gangsta Crunk by Daz Dillinger. Yep, the same Daz from Tha Dogg Pound. This one was a big disappointment to me. I expect more from you Daz. The third of the list is Naked from Marques Houston. A great CD here if you’re into the pimpin R&B type stuff. He even has an advisory sticker on this thing, dang. I guess he’s grown up from his Immature days. This one is the best of the three latest ones I have.
3 Quick Thangs:
1. 1 week away till ECW One Night Stand. I can barely contain myself. I’m sure it’ll be watered down by WWE, but still should be nice to see a lot of the old ECW crew.
2. I didn’t quite go with the CT look on the haircut yesterday, but it’s definitely the shortest cut I’ve ever had. I like it.
3. High of 87 today? Ugh. Give me colder weather anyday.
