Miss Universe 2007

Did you guys hear that Miss USA fell down in the Miss Universe competition (this is the same contest where Miss Puerto Rico, the winner, passed out last year)? If you didn't there's a clip here. Although I'm not sure how you didn't hear about it - it was everywhere. In any case, we all know the real reason people watch those competitions is for the bikinis (what do you think, NSFW).

What you may have missed in all of the coverage of the trip was that my boy Tony Romo was a judge. First, he bangs Carrie Underwood (she cleaned up nicely, huh), now he gets this. Dallas should be thanking God everyday that they have him because here is a video of Dallas' other mega-sports star:



One of those men was the NBA MVP last year. No wonder ratings are at an all-time low. By the way, did you guys here that Miss USA fell down at the Miss Universe competition?

Anyway, apparently the Miss Universe contest was tainted as Miss Sweden pulled out saying that these contests don't represent the modern woman (prolly NSFW). What in the hell did you think you were doing? You clearly had to win a few contests to get to this point - you waited until now to pull out? Don't you think that is a little late at this point? I mean once you get this far, it doesn't really hurt anymore to finish does it?

So, after the Miss Sweden pull out, Miss Japan (her job is: "dancer!") ended up wining the thing. Since when did we start letting the Asians beat us at anything. This is Miss Universe damnit. How do we not win this? Oh, you mean we've won the most all-time. Well, ok then, I guess.

Sadly, I didn't have the privelege of watching get to watch the Miss Universe pageant. Although, I wish I would have - did you guys hear that Miss USA tripped? My favorite part is always the Q&A (and why is it A.C. Slater not Zach Morris hosting this?), which rival the interviews given by the gladiators on American Gladiators.



Make sure you make it to the interview at the end of that clip. Outside of the interview, the best part of the clip may be the rare appearance by a backup gladiator, Bronco, who promptly gets his ass-kicked. Good times. Almost as good as Miss USA falling down - did you guys hear about that?

National Anthem Disasters

Happy Memorial Day everybody. I love Memorial Day because its not a busy holiday and no one really ever makes plans so it turns into a real day off. So, since its a holiday, I'll keep it short today.

Anyway, what better way to celebrate Memorial Day than by taking a look at people who have butchered the Star-Spangled Banner. Some of these are real trainwrecks. To help avopid them in the future, I have created a few key rules that you should follow when singing/preparing to sing The National Anthem.

Rule #1: Don't Be Canadian.

This one should be pretty straight-forward. I don't sing your, you don't sing mine. Perhaps a video will help explain (make sure you make it to the end).



That was God/karma attack. Don't screw with The Anthem.

Rule #2: Know the f---ing words.

I'm looking at you, Michael Bolton. You were born in America - how do you mess this up? Its not that hard. Holy nuts.



Rule #3: Just sing the Anthem.

This one is a tough rule. I understand that you want to add your own flair to the song. That's fine. Just don't go overboard. I'll let Carl Lewis (sorry no video) explain this one for us.



Honestly, people. It isn't that hard. If you want a good example, watch this from Whitney Houston (sorry, anytime I mention her, I have to show that video...its a rule). Of course, I'll make an exception for non-professional minors. I'll end the today's post with mistake that has a heart-warming ending thanks to a save by Mo' Cheeks.



Have a good holiday.

Week In Recap: Under the Radar

Apparently in the mess of TV that ended last week, Dancing with the Stars ended. I have no clue since I haven't followed DWTS since Shandi was voted off. Anyway, apparently Apollo Anton Ohno (there is nothing funny in that video except for his shirt that says "The Real Thing") won the thing. This is not important. What is important? His partner, Julianne Hough, is smoking hot. I have heard no leass than 4 girls say that they would "eat her box." That is impressive my friends.

Wanna see her? Of course you do.



My goodness - I forgot that Salt N' Peper sang Push It. That stripper pole grind dance by Julianne was pretty impressive. You know what else is impressive? The amount of clothing (or lack thereof) that she is wearing in this clip.

Julianne is flying under the radar because not a lot of dudes watched DWTS. I hope she doesn't just walk away from this show and disappear into thin air...

On to the recap:

On Monday, 24 ended and I discussed my plans to pick up Sopranos (spoiler alert).

I discussed the glory of 80's music on Wednesday.

Friday's post was written just so I could show you a clip where someone says "Double Penetration"

Also, as a follow up to last week", formatting has been rolled back. There will now be three link types: Normal, Must See and Internal. I may include a craptastic link style every now and then, but only for the most ridiculous links. To be fair, that last link wasn't craptasitc, but Curt Schilling called his outing craptastic and I thought that was funny.

Have a good week.

Casual Dress Friday: Vas o No Vas

Its a casual dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower and if you haven't figured it out yet, I watch a lot of video on the Internets. Of course, sometimes the videos are boring, sometimes they are NSFW (ironically that link is SFW), but, no matter what, the videos are always crazier/funnier when they are in another language.

For instance, I commented on Wheezy's blog about Michael Moore that Oprah showed this video which I didn't laugh at; however, when I saw it in Spanish, I laughed pretty hard. On a completely unrelated side-note, I read this on a sports blog and I'm pretty sure it describes me failry well:

"Though we’re still relatively new to this genre, it appears as if the best way to become part of the blogging community is to link to other bloggers. It’s kind of like we’re all on this immensely gay basketball team, going around giving each other high-fives and pats on the back."

But I digress - What is it about the production value from Mexico that catches my attention? Why do I always look to see what is on the Univision when I'm scrolling through the channels on my DVR (and why do I always laugh at a show named Infarto)? Finally, why do I find myself consistently watching Spanish Deal or No Deal Vas o No Vas (which literally means "you go or do not go")?

I have no answers to any of those questions. Its definitely not the dialog (you know I don't speak Spanish). It's not the quailty, which rivals Catwoman. It might be because I get to see the banker on Vas o No Vas. Ok, lets be honest, its because of the Mexican Hat Dance.

Yes, foreign language videos always rank right up there with videos from the 50's or 60's that make me say "That's what she said" (there are so many ridiculous things in that video: He had to find things out by talking to a zookeeper! Why are people clapping (on a sub-side note here - try searching slow clap on YouTube. Now go to the 2nd set of results. Not what I was expecting...) and shaking his hand? No way anything that happened in that video could ever happen...). But, I don't think they top catching someone saying something obscene on TV.



Ay, ay, ay, PenetraciĆ³n doble. Nothing like some good sideline reporting.

Yes, this entire post was written just so I could show that video.

Have a good weekend.

The Glory of the 80's

The 80's were an awesome time. Mainly because I was born then, but there are some other good reasons to love the 80's as well. For instance, who didn't love Reagan? But my favorite part of the 80's is the classic music (not including this crap).

I have a soft spot in my heart for certain 80's bands such as Hall and Oats, Chicago and Journey. In fact, I love the Journey video for Seperate Ways so much that I rewrote the post so I could embed it here. Watch and enjoy.



That's a classic music video. The air keyboard is prolly my favorite part.

Anyway, why am I bringing this up? Because I watched parts of two movies last weekend: Catwoman and Karate Kid, Part II. Catwoman was a trainwreck and I couldn't look away. Honestly, I don't know much about cinematography, but whatever lenses they used to make that film made it look like Cinemax porn (SFW).

Karate Kid, however, is a timeless movie (unfortunately, it wasn't the first movie with the cheap shots and "Sweep the Leg"). The final battle isn't nearly as cool either, although they do "fight to death." On a side note, what in the hell are those drum things that Miyagi and everyone else has? I tried to find a video of them but I couldn't. Do they have a name? Are they just the noisemakers of the 80's?

At this point, you're still wondering how in the hell this relates back to 80's music? Well, Peter Cetera (an original member of Chicago) sang the theme song for Karate Kid, Part II "The Glory of Love."



First of all, how was that the theme song for a karate movie? Shouldn't it be something about ass-kicking or ninjas? Second, why do they have to add the title "Peter Cetera" at the three minute mark? Isn't this his video? In any case, I picture him singing it just like this in the studio. He gets so into it.

To summarize: Karate Kid, Part II was good. Catwoman was awful. 80's music* rocks.

And with that I brought you two classic music videos in one post. Hope you enjoyed.

In other news, the red formatting has now been replaced with gray. I'm still not sure how I feel about the formatting. Let me know what you think...

* Most 80's music, some of it is atrocious

End of 24 = The Start of Sopranos

Tonight is bittersweet for me. I love 24, especially Bauer, and so a 2-hour season finale should put me over the top. That said, it does signal the end of TV for the summer. We already said goodbye to The Office last week and this week we are losing 24 and Lost (not to mention countless other shows I watch but am too lazy to find links for).

If you haven't figured it out, I love TV. So the summer (good Jenna Fischer there) is always an interesting time for me because I have to find something to do (God forbid I go outside...). Basically, I like to use this time to catch up on older TV shows (previously, I've used this time to catch up on older seasons of 24). I've kind of mentioned this before, but I like to watch shows on DVD - no weeks off, no commercials, no BS - you can knock out an entire season in a week.

Anyway, the show I'm picking up this summer? The Sopranos. I apparently fall for dominating male-leads with questionable antics, so this seems like a pretty easy transition. I also have the first 5 seasons on DVD, so that makes it pretty easy. Plus, there's a guy on there named Paulie Walnuts that brings us marvelous scenes like this:



I haven't watched any more than a YouTube.com clip or an occasional episode of The Sopranos, but I'm pretty sure he's gonna be my favorite character. Although that might just be because we used to call one of our friends Sarah Pecans based on the name Paulie Walnuts (and even that was a Real World Key West reference, not a Sopranos one).

Of course, if you have any other suggestions for TV shows - I'm always game. I've been told I should start watching The Wire as well because it plays to my hip-hop roots (just like Phil Collins).

I guess I could become a WNBA fan...sorry, that's not even a funny joke. On a side note, how in the hell can a WNBA team have a "Jam Cam?" Do they not know there needs to be jams to have a Jam Cam?

Goodbye Jack. See you next season.

Week In Recap: Ross' Return

It was a good weekend for me. My Spurs won twice this weekend, beating the Suns on Friday and the Jazz on Sunday, and my friend Ross returned from his three week excursion to Panama on Saturday (I'm just impressed he took the time to visit the Skeet Thrower while in Panama). Plus I got some sno-cones.

At this time, you may be wondering why some of the links in that last paragraph are different. Well, I should inform you that (thanks to a genious suggestion from Wheezy) I'm going to try a new link format here on the Skeet Thrower.

As I've said before, I put some of my best stuff in the links but since I throw a lot of links at you, I'm going to try and help you decipher what you're getting before you click on them.

So, here is a list of link styles for your reference:

So, hopefully those will help you out (of course, I may get lazy and not use those tags...we'll see). In other news, there are two new blogs you should check out: The first is a genious Hot or Not discussion at Da Skinny and the second is...well, I haven't quite figured it out yet but the blog's title is In a Crowded Room, Pants Down and Music Up. They, of course, will be added to the links on the side.

Isn't this just supposed to be a recap post? On to the recap...

On Monday we went Ghost Riding. You have no idea how many times I heard "Ghost Ride Your Whip" this week - it just fits into everyday situations. So, in honor of the popularity of Ghost Ridin', here's another video.



I posted some interesting pictures and a couple of funny videos on Wednesday.

Friday was Shorty's day as she revealed her BCS Top 5 Cod Pieces Dudes.

Have a good week.

Casual Dress Friday: Shorty's BCS Top 5

Its a casual dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower and today is a weird day because it is the first time in the history of the Skeet Thrower that I am going to allow a ghost guest writer to actually write something on the blizog. But before I do that, allow me to tell you a little story.

About two weeks ago, I came home from work and was greeted by something strange. Usually, I come home, my dog goes nuts and my wife usually says something to the extent of "Hi, dear." Instead, this day I was greeted with "Salma Hayek, huh? And why did you post that same Vanessa Marcil video again?" If you couldn't figure it out, my wife found the BCS Top 5. Fortunately, I wasn't trying to hide anything from her, so it wasn't like I was in trouble or anything - she was just curious. Anyway, not to be left out, she immediately began working on her list. About a week ago, she asked me when I was going to post her list. My reply: "When you do all of the hard work. I'm not looking up any cod pieces on the Internets...Google already thinks I'm gay enough."

To my surprise, Shorty spent the next hour evaluating pictures, watching videos and writing the summaries. So, since you already know the rules, here is Shorty's (unadultered by me except for some formatting) BCS Top 5.

Shorty's BCS Top 5

5. John Krasinski
John Krasinski (The Office) is my most loveable! He’s just got that fantastic personality, plus he is funny has hell! Go Team Pam!

4. Most Obtainable: Bryan Greenberg
Bryan Greenberg is my most obtainable. Plus he was born in Omaha! I began to like him on One Tree Hill (yes, my favorite girly show) and now enjoy the new series October Road (yes another girly show)!!!

3. Taye Diggs
Taye Diggs is my “nice to look at.” He’s got a killer smile, plus I got to see his butt in How Stella Got Her Groove Back!

2. Andy Roddick
Andy is my “tennis instructor.” I’m sure I could learn a few things from him!! Plus, he lives in Austin, well at least one month a year!!

1. Dwayne Wade
First of all, Dwayne is my “grrr!” That man is just telling me to “come and get it!” Plus, I would put Dwayne Wade in my “fave 5” way before I would ever put Charles Barkley in my fave 5!

Injured Reserve: Chad Michael Murray is the guy I should hate, but just can’t! He’s just too damn hot. However, I did decide to switch him with John Krasinski because he is engaged after already being divored (bad move, he was married to Sophia Bush (NSFW)) to an 18 year-old chick!!

Ok, that's her list. Let's be honest, there are more exclamation points in that list than there than there have been on the Skeet Thrower in the previous 147(!) posts combined. That's impressive. Also, I'm not sure why she gets to sneak an injured reserve in there. Anyway, hope you enjoyed her list.

Now, you know I can't leave you without a video, so here is a video of ridiculous movie death scenes (starting with Shark Attack 3: Megalodon!) to slingshot you into the weekend.



Have a good weekend.

Who Doesn't Want It That Way?

Do you remember when I when I wrote a post showing you all of those ridiculous Association videos? Well I haven't forgotten about it...but its been delayed indefinitely. Anyway, in that post I said that Dirk Nowitzki was the probable MVP - turns out he got the award yesterday (and Mark Cuban cried). Well, after losing in the first round (thanks to moments like this, where Avery Johnson tags his player in the nuts - yes, I know that's from last year) Dirk has pretty much taken a beating in the press, so to help cheer him up, here's a little video (thanks TSims).



I used to freestyle a lot (my wife doesn't like me to anymore), but I sure hope I didn't look like that. There's something very awkward/crazy about that guy - he's on the edge of his seat, he's a little behind the beat and he's got the headband pulled down too far so it makes his ears stick out. That said, he did say his team "pooped themselves." Alright, let's be honest, that guy is about two-cans short of a six-pack. Still funny though (and Dirk-a-licious is way better than the damn song Ferg-a-licious).

Speaking of slightly crazy people, here is a Backstreet Boys groupie. This is a long video (5 minutes) but worth every second.



I don't even know what to say after that video. I'm gonna be straight with you: there was probably no bigger fan of "I Want It That Way" then me. I used to rock out to that song in the car, at parties...pretty much everywhere. But this guy is over the top. In fact, he kind of scares me mainly because the last time I was in Vegas I took pictures like this and this. I hope he doesn't confuse me with them...

On a side note, you may be asking yourself who is more gay (yes, that is Brady Quinn), the guy in that video or me (because of those pics and having a BCS Man-Crush list). I have no defense. Except for this and this and this (those last two will be pretty good for quite a few of you).

Ghost Ride Your Whip

Here at the Skeet Thrower, I like to keep my ear to the streets. The benefits are two-fold:

  1. I keep my connections to the hood

  2. I feel like I can provide something "educational" to all my readers
I then take my knowledge from the streets and give the important things to the 'burbs. Why am I bringing this up? Because a sensation is starting to get legs in the steets (as evidenced by getting a few references in some hip-hop songs) and may cross-over into mainstream rather soon. The phrase is "Ghost Ride the Whip" (not to be confused with the Ghost Rider). I've linked the Urban Dictionary if you want the "Official" description, but effectively, you throw your car in neutral, get out of your car and dance like an idiot.

Still confused? This video should help out. I call it Ghost Ride the Short Bus:



I'm not sure what's more ridiculous, the tricked out bus or the ghost riding. Also, if you did not laugh at anypoint during the video (specifically, at the dude that has just his legs hanging out of the window or the fact that they have multiple camera men), please leave the site now.

Assuming that you are still reading, you enjoyed the video and you probably want to see more. Well you are in luck - I dug through a lot of video (I might have too much time on my hands) and found some of the best. My favorite two are shown below.

First, this is apparently what happens if your a white-boy an idiot that tries to show-off your ghost riding talents too many times in a row.



I want to punch that guy in the face. Also, I hope that isn't fake because that is hilarious. I wonder what the theif was thinking:

"What an idiot! He's just standing on his car yelling...wait...there's no one in that car. I am going to straight jack it.

My other favorite is this video. I'm not going to say anything other than this one should be renamed "Ghost Ride the Whip 10-year Old Girl's Bike."



I don't think I laughed harder at any other video when I was doing my research. I don't own a bike, but I might buy one just so I can replicate that video.

You may have thought those two guys were idiots, but trust me, there's more. Want proof? Here are some examples (don't try to go to the blog in that video - it's a trap). Now, if only we can get Bauer to do some Ghost Riding the next time he rides a vehicle...

Hope you learned something today.

Week in Recap: Baron Davis Dunk

Let me start of today by saying Happy Mother's Day to my two moms who I hope never read this blog.

I watch a lot of basketball. A lot. It got to the point last week where my wife asked me if I was putting basketball ahead of her. I'm gonna be honest with you, when the 2nd round of the playoffs roll around, I get pretty distracted every night (and its not because of Charles Barkley's sweet ass). Sometimes the games suck, and I drift in and out, but the benefit of watching all of the basketball? Seeing dunks like this.



That was nasty. Nothing like a good facial (especially in the face of a Russian - you commie bastards). You know its a good dunk when it leads to reactions like this and Stephen Jackson doing who knows what here. I'm not going to tell you to watch any games because everytime I have, its been followed up with a blowout, but this has been one of the best playoffs in recent memory.

On to the recap...

On Monday, we took a look back at Stephen Colbert's early TV moments. Also, there was a funny clip recently on The Colbert Show where Stephen made his own Korean Music Video. I've embedded it in a non-YouTube.com format because damn Viacom keeps taking down Comedy Central clips.



We took a look at characters named Skeeter from Nickelodeon on Wednesday.

On Friday I asked "What in the hell happened to Luke Wilson?". This post also featured a comment from Ross who is hanging out in Panama.

Have a good week.

Casual Dress Friday: What the Hell Happened to Luke Wilson?

It's a casual dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower and around here its a fairly common thing for me to ask "What the hell happened to fill in celebrity name here?". For examples, see here, here and here. But today I'm asking what in the hell happened to Luke Wilson.

I used to love L-Dub. Old School, Blue Streak, a cameo in Anchorman, The Royal Tenenbaums...he used to be awesome.

Luke Wilson, what in the hell happened to you? Did you get kicked out of the cool club or do you just keeping gettin lost in movie studios that are filming horrible movies that feature the word "Blonde"?

Wait...you don't know what I'm talking about? Luke Wilson is filming a new movie called Blonde Ambition.



You realize this movie features Jessica Simpson, right? Her last two movies were Employee of the Month and The Dukes of Hazzard. You don't see a pattern here? Don't be duped by her bresticles, Jessica Simpson is not a good actress (although I guess she had a lot of people convinced that she was actually married to Nick Lachey).

I don't know what you did to the "New Rat Pack" but please get back on their good side because, apparently, when you make movie decisions on your own, you fail miserably.

On the plus side, maybe he'll have to follow the path of Jason Lee. He was in all kinds of movies but had to take a trip back to TV land for one of my favorite shows "My Name is Earl" (which ended its 3rd season last night), which has brought us clips like this.



So, maybe it won't all be a bad thing, Luke. Maybe you can turn it around after all.

Have a good weekend.

Nickelodeon Slips One Past Us

Every once in a while, I do a little research for a post or the blog itself. For instance, sometimes I go to Google or YouTube.com and type in variations of Skeet Throwin' to see how it turns out. Just to give you an update:

Search Term            Number
Skeet Throwin'              1st
Skeet Thrower               3rd
Skeet Throwing             7th

I really have no reason for doing this other than curiosity. One of the added benefits of doing research is that I often stumble upon ridiculous links or videos (why only one eye!). For instance, here's a video for show on Nickelodeon about a puppet named Cousin Skeeter.



You may have missed it, but that video included the lines "Skeeter's the one for me" and "Skeeter's what I want, Skeeter's what I ne-e-e-ed." On a side note, that song was apparently sung by 702, a group famous for the high school hit Where My Girls At?.

While those lines are funny, to me, the most interesting thing may be the fact that Nickelodeon has now had two characters named Skeeter, the other being Skeeter Valentine from the show Doug. I'm not sure whether they knew what skeet meant or not, but I think this clip might shed some light onto things.



Skeet face! I'll give Nickelodeon the Doug character, but they slid one right by us their viewers (I would have put the Chappelle Show clip here...damn you Viacom, bastards) with the Cousin Skeeter show. Not only did they name the main character Skeeter, but they put it in the title. Well played, Nickelodeon.

Colbert: The Beginnings

I watched a small amount of SNL in the 90's last night. It was OK, but it just made me sad to remember what we had (on a side note, a lot of the alums looked really, really bad. Just awful). On the plus side, it allowed me to think about all of the good spin-offs SNL created. One of my favorites was the Dana Carvey Show (not to be confused with the Drew Carey Show - which I hated). I don't think the Dana Carvey Show lasted very long but it did have some awesome clips like this one:



When I was in middle school, that was the funniest thing ever. Anyway, one of the best parts of the DCS is that is featured Stephen Colbert (who, on a side note has an awesome Wiki: Wikiality.com featuring an article entitled Obamamamamia!). He seemed to be in most of the skits that made me laugh like Skinheads from Maine or him acting as a news reporter (as a precursor to his Daily Show days - I would normally have a clip there, but damn Viacom won't let their clips stay on the YouTube.Com...bastards).

Anyway, my favorite clip from that show was probably Stephen Colbert doing the NBC prologue for game 3 of the 1997 Eastern Conference Finals between the Bulls and Heat.




Those damn NBC Prologues were the best. Its prolly the combo of the music and the Bob Costas and Marv Albert (if you ever wanted to hear Marv Albert say "sloppy ball" watch the beginning of that clip...that's the only reason it is there) voice-overs.

Speaking of the NBA, did you watch the Spurs/Suns game yesterday? This is gonna be a good series - probably just as good as the Mavs/Warriors one. You have Nash, Stoudamire, Marion, Barbosa, Duncan, Parker, Ginobli and Big Shot Rob. It is gonna be awesome.

If nothing else, it led to this photograph. Here's a video of the accident.

Steve Nash should just be happy he ran into Tony Parker and not Jack Bauer.

Week In Recap: Cinco De Mayo

Yesterday was Cinco De Mayo. Big time day that HBO decided to celebrate with the Maywheather/De La Hoya fight and Hollywood decided to celebrate by releasing Spiderman 3. I celebrated by going downtown and drinking Red Bull. Good times.

Anyway, to help bring together the wonders of Mexican heritage, fighting and Spiderman, I bring to you a Lucha Libre fight between Spiderman and Venom (exercise caution after the fight ends because there is some male body painting...).



On to the recap...

On Tuesday, I realized I was getting old.

I told you about how I was going to nag at the airline industry on Wednesday. Turns out that paid off - I got two free flights.

Friday's post forced me to do some research on the Internets. I uncovered that the Japanese Spiderman is really weird. On a side note, I am always privileged when I make it to Wheezy's Interesting Internets - and this post made it. Good times.

Have a good week.

Casual Dress Friday: Spiderman or Supaidaaman

It's a casual dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower and as you already know Spiderman 3 comes out today.

You all know how much I love TMNT, but Spiderman was also a cartoon I watched growing up (despite the weird theme song).

Anyway, I started doing some investigation for this post and found out that Power Rangers may actually be a Spiderman ripoff.

Want some proof? Here's Spiderman fighting what appears to be The Thing.



Right now you're saying, "So what. He has a car and the bad guy got huge." That's what she said. My response: Watch this clip.



How is that not Power Rangers? Spiderman doesn't have a big freaking robot! Turns out, that the Japanese call this guy Supaidaaman and he fights bad guys or boy bands (seriously!). This may be the most ridiculous show on TV. Honestly, that last clip (the one on ridiculous) is the best one (featuring a half-Shredder/half-Dr. Doom guy) - you need to watch that. I have no clue what is going on there.

After a little more research, Spiderman (along with some mix of the Avengers) apparently spawned the original Power Rangers, Battle Fever J.

Thank god we make the movies.

A Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That...

Let me start off by saying, I don't know if you watched the Warriors/Mavericks game last night, but it was a great game. The Warriors should have won, but went away from their offense in the last two minutes which cost them the game. If you have a chance, I'd watch the game on Thursday. It will be a good one - I promise.




I was going to talk some more about my BCS Top 5 Chicas today, but I think all I really need to say is Christina Milian (NSFW) is my wild card. Also, my wife finally decided to read my list, and, of course, immediately began constructing her list by looking up Andy Roddick's cod piece on the Internets. I guess that's prolly fair. I guess she has gotta flex her vagina box power.

Also, if you didn't check the comments, my boy Adam posted his BCS Top 5 which included: 5) Melissa Theuriau 4) Marisa Miller (NSFW), 3) Elizabeth Hasselbeck, 2) Erin (NSFW) Andrews and 1) Stacey "Dancing With The Stars Made Me" Keibler (who is now longer on WWE anymore, I believe - none of those links are particularly SFW by the way). For my money, I would replace Elizabeth Hasselbeck with Kelly Ripa.



Good list, Adam. Also, happy birthday (a day early). Anyway, the only thing I really wanted to talk about today, was my flight from Omaha to Austin this weekend. I wrote a long blurb about it here, but then I sounded like a whiny little bitch. Suffice it to say that the gate attendants in Memphis suck ass. Instead of complaining about it, I'll leave you with a ridiculous South Park clip that explains the situation.



That's right I'm going to nag at them until I get what I want. What were you thinking.

May 1 = I'm Getting Old

Last year about this time I was finishing up college a second time. I had no finals (grad school is awesome), so I was all done except for the ceremony and the party.

Anyway, I feel like I'm a lot older this May than I did last May. Maybe that's what working does to you (how smart does Wheezy seem now...). I don't know. Now I'm rambling like Bruce Willis.



In any case, I've picked myself in the Death Pool this week. I'm predicting that this may be the week that my luck runs out and my age catches up to me (or my wife finally kills me, its a toss up).

So, if you don't see any posts from me over the next week or so, I'm probably dead. Or just really busy. But probably dead (they really stepped up the violence in those things. That escalated quickly.).

But I digress, the whole point of today's column was to show you this video which you may/may not have seen. It is Will Ferrell working as a trainer for USC football player.



Is it his best work? No. Is it funny? Absolutley. Is it better than this David Hasslehoff lightsaber fight? You tell me. On a side note, Will Ferrell's new video site that is supposed to compete with YouTube.com could be cool except it is like watching porn videos on a freaking modem. Too Damn Slow.




In other news, I hope you enjoyed Testosterone week. Sorry about the lack of a recap and post on Sunday/Monday. I was traveling again this weekend and I arrived in Austin fairly late Sunday, forcing me to play catch up all day Monday. I will fill you in to the details of my trip this week.

Anyway, here's the closing recap of Testosterone Week (I'm including last week's recap because that Shannon Elizabeth post was awesome).

Last Sunday, I kicked off Testosterone Week with a clip of Shannon Elizabeth taking down a banana.

Monday was the first official post of the week told women to know their role.

Wednesday had, among other things, a Get Some Nuts commercial and an old-school karate fight.

Friday was the last post of the week and brought the BCS Top 5 Chicas. The comments on that post should be examined and will be addressed soon...

Have a good week.
