ITEM: Apparently that also goes for pictures.
ITEM: I am back at work, and my lower back, hip, and the right knee which I have rested my weight on for probably 46 of my 51 years know it. Other than that, normal day. Except when they shut my power off without telling me as they examined a buss bar at 6:30 AM.
ITEM: I have so many examples of utter stupidity out there in the world, we're going to launch they first (perhaps weekly) Aaron Hernandez stupidity award!
|Chose brawn (and ink) over brains. Boy, did he!|
ITEM: Contestant #2 , Matthew Zeno, 30, of Brooklyn, whose "forgot to consider" moment was p.p.ing on the subway's third rail. Not surprisingly, alcohol was a factor. Surprisingly, alcohol does nothing for one's electrical resistance.
ITEM: I have a couple of contestants of which, in fairness to the bloggers who first reported them, you'll have to follow the links. At Bobby G.s place, you will see the story of a Philly copper stealer who shoulda oughta of checked to see if the gas was still on; and at Fort Wayne Media Maven, you'll meet someone having a hard time with the concept of "before and after".
ITEM: Just how many idiots are there in Philly these days? Our next contestant is (former) real estate agent Andrea Straub.
ITEM: That's our five contestants for today! Go to comments and pick which one gets the A-H award this week (hey that's funny, Hernandez has the same initials as... uh....)
ITEM: Here's our AIHL update. Two games each day, And we start off with Adelaide edging Canberra 5-4 in a shootout. Adelaide has struggled since the Ouellette brothers returned to Canada ( and if I ever find out why, I'll let you in on it), but they get a win when Matthew Haywood, who had scored late to give the Ads a 4-3 lead, got the third goal of the OT for the winners. Haywood comes to the Ads to fill in one of the now empty Ouellette spots from Braehead in the UK Elite league, where he's put up identical 10 goal, 30, point seasons the last 2 years. In the other Saturday game, Perth broke open a tight game with the Mustangs by outshooting them 23-9 and outscoring them 4-1 in a 5-2 win. Brian Berger's two goals led the winners there.
Sunday, the 'Stangs took the second game out west from Perth 4-2. A 3-goal first put it away for the Melbourne team, with Pat O'Kane bagging two scores. In the meantime, the game between the Ads and the Sydney Ice Doggies was also a third period decision. Adelaide rattled off 18 shots at Anthony Kimlin and scored twice; Sydney managed only 8 shots, but beat Rick Parry 3 times, as the Doggies get a 6-3 win. Sydney scored three of the game's four short handed goals, with Simon Barg accounting for one of his 2 goals and both of his assists on those plays. In the meantime, a real blowout occurred between the Dogs' David Dunwoodie and the Ads' Darren Corstens; Dunwoodie got a 2-minute check-from-behind, a 5-minute rough, a ten-minute misconduct, and a game, while Corstens got a 5 and a game.
Sydney's win gets them into a tie in points (9-4-4, 34 pts) with Newcastle (10-4-2); Melbourne's Ice are 2 points back, Perth 7, the 'Stangs 8, the Ads 12, the Bears 18, and Canberra now 27 points south of first. Back to a full schedule next week, with Adelaide getting two more shots at 2-14-1 Canberra, and the big three getting one game each.
ITEM: Finally, I was going to set aside some space to apologize for mocking the Yankees fall into fourth place, as they got hot early in the week and moved up, threatening even second place Baltimore. But, as I checked out the standings today, I see the charge has subsided and they're back in fourth. Sucks to be them.
