My Favorite Over Advertised , Money Grubbing Time of the Year
Well, its come to my attention that its Christmas time once again. I've been told that I'm supposed to make merry and joyful, but all the advertising and asking me to spend more of my hard earned bucks on things that shouldn't matter but always seem to, is starting to piss me right off. This will be my 22nd Christmas and people let me tell you something, I'm getting quite tired of the meaning of Christmas being buying more gifts and going to more parties rather than concentrating on the things that truly matter. You may be asking yourself at this very moment.......What things really matter? I'm going to tell you. It's going to church and celebrating the birth of the savior of the world and spending time with family and friends. The thing is, this whole holiday was started about 2000 years ago when the birth of a man started this holiday. I know the gifts we give today represent the gifts given by the three wise guys, but I don't think Jesus ever got a "Tickle me Elmo" or anything like that. I'm pretty sure a lot of people need to rethink their reasons for giving and exactly what they give because most of these companies that do all of this advertising for seasons greetings and most other things are giving very little and receiving a lot more. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying stop giving cause Lord knows I do it too, but when you buy something for someone make it meaningful don't make it what's cool because as I think about how a lot of the toys that I thought were so cool back in the day, how many of those toys and things are cool now........not very many I guarantee. Enough of cynicism.......Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Jason Giambi, Hows your Testicles Daaahh?
This post goes out to all the baseball players who have small testicles, a huge cranium, and oversized muscles (this means steroids to you lay persons out there). What are you all thinking? Now I know that to keep up with all of the other players in the league you might actually have to put in some extra hard work in the offseason and do the extra things to make you better, but if I recall correctly that's pretty much a part of every job. To get the added bonuses, to get the better positions, to move up "the corporate ladder" you have to go the extra mile and do the extra work and that never involved taking shortcuts. Some people might think its easier to sleep their way to the top or backstab and suck-up, but these are the same people who are not respected in their profession. I now no longer respect most baseball players for this reason. Instead of working hard in the offseason to make themselves better for their team and family they take shortcuts called untraceable steroids. I hope if Steinbriner, ever does one thing that I respect, it will be to get rid of Giambi and any other players in his evil empire that are steroid users. The same goes out to my beloved Atlanta Braves and any other teams in the league. Also to the players, what kind of a message are you sending to kids. Well its a pretty crappy one if you didn't know. Kids today idolize the players in the big leagues of many different sports and you are teaching them all of the wrong things. Well I'll leave you with this one thought, When your 55 and your testicles are the size of BB's and you have Bitch tits, and a number of tumors eating away at your body you might regret the whole thing about getting the extra edge.

What a Bunch of BCAssssssssss!!!!!!
Well Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a bone to pick to with the BCS. Auburn wins the SEC, goes undefeated during the regular season in the hardest conference in the nation and still doesn't get a shot at playing for the national championship. Now I do understand that USC played some of the perennial powerhouses such as Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona State and Arizona, and Oklahoma finding their best competitive match up in their conference championship being the 6-5 Colorado Buffaloes. Well all that being said I couldn't be happier with the Sugar Bowl. I just don't understand how we get the privaledge of playing a 10-2 Virginia Tech team since there are two other note worthy teams that are undefeated this season. All right let me get down to the heart of the matter.......Screw the BCS, Screw the Bowl system, and give me playoffs or give me death. All of that being said, Auburn is getting shafted.
