Soundtrack to Start June

Damn it has been awhile since I have put one out so here goes.
Fracking May is over (and Cinco De Mayo will live in infamy)

Lets start June with a positive note.
(also on a side note I wouldnt mind putting the songs on here but dont know how. Any advise will be welcomed)

Without further adio

1. Blister In The Sun - Violent Femmes "I'm high as a kite and I might stop to check you out" I dare you not to tap your toes or fingers to this song. Double Dog Dare

2. Cabo Wabo - Van Halen Nothing needed to be said. Word

3. Fever Dog - Stillwater "Fever dog scratching at your backdoor" Ok so this was the band in the movie "Almost Famous" (top 5 all time movies but more on that later) It just has you move to the drum beat and is the perfect song to crank with the windows down and wind blowing. Try it.

4. Jesus Saves - Rick Springfield "Jesus saves white trash baby like you" The title had you fooled huh?

5. Love On The Rocks - Poison "In the heat of the night is when she comes alive she gonna push until she satisified" Now my 80's Hair love will show form time to time (I have seen all but 2 of the top 10 of VH! top hair bands of all time) Just a rocking song to get your day started. Air guitar curtosy of CC Deville!!!

End Of An Era

Last Sat night I with a few hundred others witnessed an end of an era. It was the last time we saw the Rockford Icehogs in the UHL and the players and the coach.

The Metro Centre has bought an AHL hockey franchise and are basically folding operations under the UHL.

Coaches and players are being sent elsewhere and the only thing that will be the same is just the Icehogs name. I have my thoughts on this and they are not ones of mirth. I feel the players and coaches and fans got screwed by the great Rockford political machine. More on that later.

Anywho, it was a chance to say goodbye to the guys that we have watched make this season the best so far which ended as Colonial Cup Champions!

Now my fellow Leaguers and I have been going to the games since day one. We have been through some of the worst hockey one man shoud be subject to, Dollar Beer Wed (which many a Thurs was PAINFUL) and male bonding the way only hockey can bring.

Some of the players said some words and one player who is retiring after this got choked up. Didnt help that they played the coaches speech from Mircle.

Anyway enough Estrogen. It was a good time saying good travels to the coach and players.

Oh and I got a pic with the Cup

Ok Thanks to Harvey over at Bad Example I have to do this.

"Players start with 8 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts. Players should tag eight other people and notify them that they have been tagged.

Victims may either play by the original rules, my rules, or just make up their own damn rules."

Ok I am going to streamline this to just 3 and send to 3 peoples that I know. (cause I really only know about that many in the Blogging Community.

1. I have a fear of Sea Monsters. Laugh all you want but in the ocean we do not know all the creatures that exist (proven fact) and reaffermed by that show Surface they want to EAT you. I love the ocean and the beach but further out......NO.

2. I LOVE Rhubarb.

3. I was told by a fortune teller back when I was a kid that I was to only live until age 18. Guess the Gods have a sense of humor or I am being punished for someting.

I Got A Game Ball

Now fellow Gothamites last night was our Beloved Raptors home game against the St Louis Craptaculars!! It was a good game and of course we were victorious. COntagion and Grau and Sanders made it a fun night.

Now the big news....after 2 years I got a game ball!!

One of the plays had a ball be drilled to our side and Grau had to deflect it to the floor or have it surgically removed from his head.

Now there is a discrepency on how I got the ball. COntagion seems to thing that I went Captain Caveman on a little girl and told her that her parents hated her to get this ball. Not True

As the ball rolled on the floor it came to rest at this girls feet. She was looking in the opposite direction and I just picked it up form her feet. Nothing was touched or said to her.
Now one of my good friends son was sitting next to Grau and because in so many past games I have given the free things I grabbed to him this was mine after 1 and 1/2 years!

Now I started to find out that with every telling of this story it seemed to grow more and more.
I knocked her from the ledge
I clobbered her in the head and took it
I stood above her and told her that Santa was a lie
and so on.

Not true and I am finding out that this is due to the ramblings of a Necro loving, gun powder sniffing, sunburned freak.

Oh and he craves the pud.

SO bottom line fellow bloggers, I got a game ball though legit means and in the game of play.

Contagion can kiss my.......

Sick Sucks

I hate being sick.

It was so bad at work yesterday at work (which I call the 7th Level of Hell. Not cause of the people, which can be, but because it is SO frackin hot) I had to wear a sweatshirt AND put the hood up.

I looked like the frackin Unibomber. (the poker player not the bad guy)

At least Batmite was able to take care of her poor dad or at least feign interest.

Sick Sucks

True believers the unthinkable happened yesterday.

I got a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt.

NOw you ask "How can you get a ticket if you dont have a car?"

He He I am mobile now. I bought a very worn 1989 Olds Cutless Ciera with no radio and alot of wear. It seems solid enough and I need to have a tune up done on it but I now have a set of wheels!

There are alot of people that are very happy at this announcement and that includes me.
Oh and the ticket? I went to go pick it up last night and of course no plates or insurance yet but all the lights work and it is street legal. COming down Alpine (one of our busiest roads) I was busy listening to the car, checking out how it sounded, anything out of the norm extc then all of a sudden I see the cherries in my rearview.

I have not been pulled over for about 2 years since my Uncle Nicks evening (we will post that story later)

The very nice Winnabeago Sherriff lady was very cool with it all and I explained to her that I just bought the car and no plates etc and she said the reason she pulled me over was no seat belt.

I laughed.

She looked at me funny and I explained that I have been carless for about 2 years now and as soon as I get one it's the seat belt!

NOw dont get me wrong I feel that everyone should wear one. It is proven to save more lives and also winkle that new pimp shirt but I deserved this.

One last funny thing, she asked me how I wanted to take care of the ticket pay the 55 or post my license. I said I would pay it there and if she had change for 60?

I never saw that look on an officer before. Amusement? Shock? Disgust?

She took my license.

Cinco De Mayo Re Revisited

Hells ya!!

The one of my 3 holy hoildays.

1. St Patricks Day

2. Cinco De Mayo

3. Halloween

Now I am not a Druid, nor Scottish, and the closest thing to Mexican is that I made out with Maria after high school.

But now fellow Gothamites one thing that Father Wayne told me before he vanished is that a holiday that you can drink on is ALWAYS a good one.

Now I know the true histories behind each of these but you have to love one that actually has drinking as one of the main componants of it's mythos or culture!!

I will be back tomorrow with a full report and lets hope that Contagion can one again fufill his Wingman duties cause between you and me Gothamites.......The Bat needs some lovin!!!

See ya back here for better or worse and definately hung over tomorrow!!

The Blogless Week

DAmn where this week get to? Between the second job which I am back at (and I frackin swore that I would never go back! The things you do for monies) Batmite needing ALL of my attn this week it has passed.


Guess it's Cinco De May then.

May the gods have mercy on our souls.
