Thoughts of Randomness

Hola mi amigos or something. Everybody doing ok out there? First off, I got a crazy amount of comments sent to me while chatting about The_Freak's idea of the Dirty Thug Ho of the Week. Not many comments in here this time for some reason, but it was one of the most comments I've gotten in a normal chat after someone has read that. With that in mind, we might as well keep that idea going strong and see what happens next.

Saturday night was interesting. Cork "was" done working at A's Pizza after a solid 8 years he put in. Now he's baaack, Bobby Brown style. So one of his bosses had a little party for him at the place. Earlier in the day, they were at Mule's wedding and the night was just starting. Me and Spank were at my place watching the UFC fights and Cork calls around 11:15. He asks if I have any ping pong balls. Of course, I have a zillion out here since we're back into playing. Anyways, he wanted me to bring a few down to A's so they could battle in beer pong.

We get down there and we see Bri, Nuzum, Zo, and one of Bri's buddies running circles in front of the restaurant on the highway. Then we go inside and you name it and that type of drink was being consumed. We got in some great stories, watched those guys play beer pong, and I had about enough after an hour. The whole party scene isn't for me at all, but I made the rare appearance, so big ups there. Weird when you're the only guy there basically not drinking, but it was fun.

Here's a shocker to most reading who haven't heard yet. It looks like I'm out of the single world. After almost 4 years of being single and being happy with that, I might as well give the whole dating scene a try. With as picky as I am, I think I found a keeper. Her name is Ashley. She's short (5'0"), Italian, Catholic, dark hair, doesn't smoke, doesn't drink, likes sports.. That's about as good as it gets for me, huge bonus points. Yesterday we hung out in Fairmont for a while, then it was off to Morgantown. Get this, I woke up at 7:00 in the morning for a date. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, that's not like me, hah. Anyways, it was definitely worth it. We hit up the Morgantown Mall for a bit until the movies opened. Then we watched The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Funny thing is we were the only two people in the entire theater, but you won't hear me complaining. Pretty good movie too I thought. After that, we hit up the new Cheddar's restaurant up there which was pretty decent and then our first trip to Cooper's Rock, a state park with a nice overlook for the people who don't know of that. So all in all, a quality time. I won't bore you anymore with that, but that's a story that you didn't expect to read for a while. Now everyone and their brother can stop trying to set me up with dirties that I'm not interested in, hah.

Aside from the date, yesterday also marks the biggest day of the year for me. Yep, the NBA Draft. As usual, I write down every pick from beginning to end with the team, player, height and weight, school, and position. Then I also keep track of all the trades too, so it's very busy, yet I love it. Cork was here for the festivities. My Celts did rather well I thought. They had the #7 pick and traded it away to Portland along with Raef Fear LaFrentz and the worst defensive player in the league (worse than Nash if that's possible) in Dan Dickau for streetball legend Sebastian Telfair and Theo Ratliff. My guys also swung a deal with the Suns where we ended up with Rajon Rando of Kentucky. He needs to put on some pounds. I don't like that we gave up a future 1st Round pick with that though, but we'll see.

I won't write a bunch of wrestling stuff this week. But I will go over Vengeance real quick and see how bad my predictions were. My overall record? 5-3, nothing to write home about. However, the three-way of Nitro, Benjamin, and Carlito was one of the best WWE matches I've seen all year. I still rank Angle against Undertaker higher and that right there shows how awesome Angle is. Benoit and Finlay are also a candidate for match of the year too in WWE. The DX stuff on RAW is going strong and they're doing a nice job of it so far. ECW is getting a bit better, but there's still a LOT they need to work on and I'm getting worried.

Bird's Dirty Thug Ho of the Week:

3 Quick Thangs:

1. Birthdays for the last day of June (June 30th): Comedian David Alan Grier turns 50, wow. Actor Laurence Fishburne goes for 45. Former NBA baller Mitch Richmond is 41. My favorite boxer of all time, Mike Tyson, hits 40. Tom Green, wish him a Happy 35th. Baseballer Chan Ho Park celebrates his 33rd. American Idol chick Fantasia Barrino is 22.

2. Have dogs always been allowed in a mall? I must be sheltered, but I saw a few dogs yesterday while I was shopping. I never see that.

3. ESPN2 has been showing the World Domino Tournament. They can put anything on TV I guess, but for some reason, I'm sitting here watching. It sucks you in.
