Christmas Fever

Do you have the Xmas Fever? Are you caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season? Me, I'm just anxious to be done with it.

Bowl season kicks off tonight. Navy and Utah square off in the Poinsettia Bowl. This of course if the first of 125 bowl games to be played between now and I believe July 4th. My how things have changed from the good old days of college football when every bowl that mattered was on New Years Day. I still don't see why bowl season can't be wrapped up on January 1st. Doesn't seem right that games go on for an additional week. I don't think the world would be a lesser place without the pageantry of the Meineke Car Care bowl.

I'm willing to bet less than 10 percent of Americans will give or receive porn movies for Christmas gifts this year.

I bet more people are getting smut then Kindles this year. I'm a tech guy yet I really have no interest in the latest toy to download books. Isn't it really just as easy to carry a real book around?

Was a bad week for Sci Fi TV fans...first it was the airing of the last eps of Journeyman and now yesterday USA announced the cancellation of the 4400 and the Dead Zone. Anthony Michael Hall shouldn't have to file for unemployment at Christmas. Its just wrong!

No foolin'....REM's next bad record comes out on April Fools Day:http://www.gigwise.com/news/39550/rem-to-release-new-album-next-april?loc=interstitialskip

Before he was an opinionated giant douche, Curt Schilling was a big time fan of hair metal:http://www.bostonmagazine.com/blogs/boston/2007/12/18/curt-schilling-rocks-like-a-hurricane/

I always hated Stinger, the disgraced mascot of your Columbus Blue Jackets, but after reading this, he ain't so bad compared to the other mascots of the NHL:http://melroserocks.blogspot.com/2007/12/true-life-i-am-nhl-mascot.html

Meet Darrell Mack...he'll be playing in the Poinsettia Bowl tonight....he's been thru more crap than humans should be allowed...:http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/college_football/20071218-9999-lz1s18running.html

Somewhere a tv producer is realizing that a reality show on the mascots of the NHL would make fine viewing....

Count me in the 10th percentile. Dennis gave me an issue of Juggs for xmas, Kyle got the latest issue of Hawk.

re: yesterday's Plant/Krauss lp. I've been threatening bodily harm upon people if they don't give this disc a spin. A charming, wonderful vinyl opus (Andy Secher, represent!!) and I normally don't throw around words as pleasant as "charming" but I will for this release.

Well, leave it to Dennis to stimulate the economy by giving gifts that stimulate.

I'm telling everyone I come in contact with how great the Plant/Krauss record is. I'm dropping off copies of it instead of change in the buckets of the Salvation Army bell ringers this year. Just an amazing and "charming" record.

Plant hasn't sounded this good in 30 years.
