27 Hours of Action

I like it when I have some different stories to write in here. I should have a nice selection this week to pick from. First off, it's always interesting when some random person I haven't talked to in ages sees me and mentions something about my blog. That cracks me up for reason. I also like how I'm just rambling along, everything is true, but I'm never doing anything too out of the ordinary and people think Shinnston is booming. However, whatever I write, some people take it for granted and it can ruin their day if they read something here they don't like. Just be laid back people. If you don't like it, don't read it, but you know you can't stay away. Again, you know how I am. If something is on my mind, I'm going to say it. That's the fun about it.

Movie time on Tuesday. I rolled to Fairmont with my boys Cork and Spank to watch Crank. I'm a huge Jason Statham fan as his work in both the Transporter movies have me hooked. There were 5 people in the theather counting our crew, you can't beat that. Also, Fairmont is my favorite place to go for a movie. $6 to get in, they sell Gatorade, and they have rocking old school seats. What else can a guy ask for other than some dirty chick bouncing around in there at the same time? We didn't get a dirty chick, but some days you can't get everything in your favor. Go see this movie, it's straight action the entire way with no dead spots. It also has some spots that are downright hilarious and that surprised me. Amy Smart isn't looking bad in this one at all. She reminds me of a regular chick, something you could actually see in real life instead of some uber celebrity who has all fake parts and gets airbrushed.

I'm going to bounce around with my week here, just to keep everyone on their toes. I'm moving along to Friday night where there was some good times to be had for all. I wake up that day at 5:45 AM for work. I come home around 3:30. I get online for a bit and then me and Spank get some Chinese while sitting around the house playing Madden and watching BET. It doesn't get much more relaxed than that. I'm in my own little world up here in my part of the house. On the Madden scene, we were bored and used a few teams from NFL Europe just for the fun of it. How'd that go? These teams are crazy slow, the QBs can't throw their patterns, and it's a mess. It's worth checking out though, just because it's teams rated low, so you have to really work for your yardage.. Then we move to later in the night..

Our crew was due to go out and eat. Ozzie, Matt, Kari, Spank, Sweet Pea, Fortney, Abbey, Sarah Stru, Sarah Stru's dude, Stevie Buck, Sims, and myself were along for the festivities. We ended up going to Outback. I'm not into Outback as much as everyone else and their brother, but I'll eat anywhere, I'm not picky. We had two round tables for the action. At my table it was Buck, Spank, Sweet Pea, Sims, Ozzie, and myself. We were joking how our table was the outcast, mostly single guys, and were loud all night as you just say what's on your mind. Our waitress was a total mess. She actually told us they were out of sweet tea and to be easy on the amount she gave us. You serious now? This set us off, but being that I always tip nice like an idiot, I still give her a nice tip at the end of the night. Go figure. I ended up getting the boomerang shrimp meal. $16 or something it was for that and a thing of fries, I thought it was expensive compared to most other places similar to that. Sweet Pea got like 3 bites worth of pasta and chicken for like $13, crazy. Good eating though.

After that, we roll to Fortney's house to get our gaming on. How's that? Everyone but Buck and Sims goes back to Shinnston for that. From around 11:30-3:00, we battled in 90s style Trivial Pursuit. Count me in for games like that at any time as there's trash talking going on and just people being idiots. We had three teams and I was paired up with Spank, Abbey, and Sarah Stru. Sarah's dude didn't seem to have a clue that we just act like a bunch of idiots. I think dude said 2 words all night, so I guess he's a good guy, but I can't tell you one thing about him. I can get along with anyone though, so he gets the benefit of the doubt, but I didn't even get the guy's name. Is it Pedro? Osama? Billy Jack? Chuck Norris? Who knows. These and many other unanswered questions in Shinnston, gotta love it. Big shout outs to Fortney and Abbey for letting our crew hang there, even if we probably stayed too long I'm sure.

I had to roll out a bit before 3:00. Everyone else was leaving since they were falling asleep, but I was just starting the night. I went to the chapel (the locals will know what I mean there) from 3:00-4:00 AM for Sarah Stru's Dad. Then I get home and I'm online till 8:45 AM. Not bad. 27 hours straight I was up, feeling good when I went to bed, but I needed a little sleep before the Notre Dame game at 3:30. Yep, I'm an idiot I know. I'm too addicted to being online, but I'm a machine when it comes to staying up late for whatever that's worth.

Last Sunday was another big thing for the crew. We had the first annual Shinnston Fantasy League, our NFL money league draft at Sweet Pea's house. Who all is in the league? Sweet Pea (The Commish), Ozzie, Matt, Maul, Bart, Salentro, Pill, Fortney, Jimmy Mills, and myself. It doesn't get better than having a live fantasy draft. Not even some chick could top that action and I'm being serious. Don't get me wrong there, but you can always find that in Shinnston if you want, but you can't always have a live fantasy draft. I got the 7th pick and drafted Edgerrin James as my franchise. Here's my team:

QB: Tom Brady: NE
Chris Simms: TB
Joey Harrington: MIA

RB: Edgerrin James: ARI
Reggie Bush: NO
Julius Jones: DAL
Kevan Barlow: NYJ

WR: Joe Horn: NO
Michael Jenkins: ATL
Troy Williamson: MIN
Antonio Bryant: SF
Marty Booker: MIA

TE: Todd Heap: BAL
Vernon Davis: SF

K: Neil Rackers: ARI
Nate Kaeding: SD

D: Washington

In a short wrestling note: The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter came out with it's biggest issue of the year, the Hall of Fame edition. I won't explain this to the non-wrestling fans, so I'll make it quick. Five new members were added to the HOF this year. They are Eddie Guerrero, Paul Bowser (promoter of Boston in the 30s), Hiroshi Hase, Masakatsu Funaki, and Aja Kong. Meltzer started his HOF in 1996.

Since a lot reading always tell me they like the dirty thug ho chicks and things of the like, I'll let my boys Corndog and The_Freak help me out in this next section. First, thanks to The_Freak for finding this next pic. It has me rolling, well, just because. You know it's funny when you see it too, just admit it. And that pic doesn't seem too far fetched because we know anything can and will happen online, even someone getting punished as Ozzie would famously say. After the pic, I'm pasting a thing Corndog said about his MySpace adventures the other day. He always has something interesting to say and this one had me laughing. I'm easy to make laugh though, but still:

Corndog says:
So im just lookin around on myspace a lil bit tonight/this morning..just checkin out friends of friends, and im lookin at this girls page, who is from around williamson for the wv people.
so im checkin out this girls pictures and picture comments and BAM! right there is a picture comment from the one and only Bird33.
I had the feeling that he was an internet legend, and that proves it.

Pick a random girl on myspace and birdman is probably talking to her online at that very moment!

Bird's Dirty Thug Ho of the Week:

3 Quick Thangs:

1. Notre Dame with a huge win this week against Penn State. What I liked was that my boys stepped up against PSU's supposed mean defense. It was 3-0 after the 1st quarter and I was expecting it to stay low scoring. However, the ND offense came to life and rolled.

2. Beach Bum Boxing: A great 10 minute clip that you'll enjoy. These bums fight for a bottle of Jim Beam:

3. Just got some info through MySpace of all places, relayed through Wes and then to Klem. I'll paste the big happenings, congrats Clark and Carrie! "From Wes:
OUR friend Mr. Clark Riley and his wife Carrie gave birth today to a healthy baby girl. I was wanting to let everyone on here that might know Clark and has not received a phone call that it was a baby girl. 6lbs 10oz 20" Miss Peyton Elizabeth Riley! Congratulations Clark and Carrie........."
