Wednesday was the last update, so we’re at it again, working the long hours in here to give you a decent post. Now that I’m in my summer, I can hardly keep my days straight. I don’t know if it’s Tuesday or Sunday. They’re all the same in the summer, but that’s fine and dandy by me. It’s nice not having a job in the summer though, I can handle that for sure.
Swedish Fish. Yep, the candy. I’m hooked on these things. I put a 1 pound bag down in a day and have another big bag waiting on me. No wonder I have to go to the dentist all the time. I can’t give up my candy though, that’d be bad times. At least my teeth are all white, but I guess the candy and junk gives me cavities on the inside.
Another trip to scenic PNC Park in Pittsburgh is scheduled for this Tuesday night. Cork is rolling up there with me as usual. This will be our third game of the year and it’s against the Expos. I don’t care if they are sitting in 1st Place in that division, they’re still the Expos to me. We got free tickets though, so you can’t go wrong. The seats aren’t down close, but I’m the type that isn’t picky on where I sit at when I go to games. PNC is a small stadium anyways, so there’s not a bad seat in the house.
On the wrestling scene, no pay per view shows this weekend. I did however load up on one of the newer WWE DVDs. That one is Road Warriors: The Life & Death of the Most Dominant Tag Team in Wrestling History and it’s a 2-disc set. I’ve watched the documentary part of this so far and it’s about 2 hours long. That alone has been worth it and features some great stories from the beginning of the Legion of Doom to the end. I haven’t even begun to watch the actual matches on these discs, so that should deliver. If you’re reading and have some wrestling DVDs you don’t want anymore, let me know and I might buy those off of ya.
I got three new CDs since our last update and I got these last night. As usual, hit me up on AOL Instant Messenger (DruDown894) if you want to see my lists. Go into my profile and it’s there. If you’re not using that, I could always email you my list. It’s always updated, so it wouldn’t be a big deal at all. Anyways, what did I end up getting this time? In alphabetical order as usual, let’s unveil the happenings: Baby, a.k.a. Birdman has one out called Fast Money. He’s already released Neck of the Woods featuring Lil Wayne. A quality song there and the chorus of Lil Wayne mumbling is classic and catchy. Not a huge amount of big names on this one, but you do get Mannie Fresh, Bun-B, Lil Mo, and of course Lil Wayne as mentioned. Next I load up Master P’s latest, Ghetto Bill. A fitting name for an album since he’s the self-proclaimed Ghetto Bill Gates. Lil Romeo, Silkk The Shocker, Slim Thug, and Young Buck on this 20-track CD. Lastly, we get some Bay Area rap, my favorite kind. This one is from Spice 1 and it’s called Dyin’ 2 Ball. I expect big things from that one.
I’ve been mixing up the video game playing lately. I’m going from old school Nintendo to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I was battling in some Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out last night and this has to be the best boxing game ever. Sure, you don’t have real guys other than Tyson. Sure, you don’t have incredible graphics. The graphics are nice for their time though and the play still holds up till this day. The music is unforgettable and the characters are great. Where else can you be a little 17-year old dude named Little Mac who weighs 100 pounds soaking wet to bust on guys twice his size? And for what it’s worth, my favorite character on the game is Soda Popinski and I think that Super Macho Man is harder fight than Tyson.
No big drama or anything majorly exciting in this post, but you’ll have that. It’s always something different in here. I figure the next update will be on Wednesday or Thursday. In that I’ll have the talk about Monday Night RAW, the trip to Pittsburgh, possible more CDs, and whatever else you guys have an idea you want me to chat it up about. Until then, here’s our traditional ending..
3 Quick Thangs:
1. Still no release date set yet, but the new Zelda game, Twilight Princess has me drooling based on the pictures and what I’ve read about it so far.
2. All sports fans have been there, but in case you live under a rock, the definitive baseball site out there is http://www.baseball-reference.com. No others can compare if you’re after stats. They also have a basketball and football site too which goes by the same style.
3. They’re easy to get now, but if anyone out there still needs a G-Mail account, let me know. It’s unlimited email space basically.
