As if Things Aren't Bad Enough for the Thrashers

Check out this youtube clip.
This is the Thrashers minor league team, the Chicago Wolves playing the Manitoba Moose (Vancouver's minor league team). The game was in overtime. A penalty is called and the Wolves pull their goalie. Usually this is a risk free decision. Well, not this time. An errant pass goes all the way from one end of the ice into the empty net. Since the Moose goaltender was the last Moose player to touch the puck, he actually gets credited with a game winning goal!

Green Day Reborn????

Most of you probably know that Green Day has been my favorite band since I first heard of them in 1994 (holy shit I'm old! I was a freshman in college!!!!!! 18 years ago!!!!!!)

Ok, that took a sudden turn for the worse. Must focus...

The last couple of years, I've used the internet to learn about new music. I've found a website (of course its blocked at work so i can't find it right now) that shows the top 40 (or so) most played songs on "alternative" radio. This list seems pretty constant with music I like, so once a month or so I go through it and make sure all of those songs are on my j-pod (with the exception of put-me-to-sleep Jack Johnson type songs). So this is how I learned of a band called Foxboro Hot Tubs. I listened to song once, without knowing who it was and I just assumed it was a Green Day song. I know that they're working on a new album, but it's not supposed to be released until July. Seems weird to have a new song debut almost 5 months before the album comes out, but I was excited. I found out it's not actually Green Day. Wikipedia, here I come! Turns out nothing is official, but it says this:

While the band's history is, as yet, unknown, they are believed to be comprised
of the members of Green Day who are, according to rumors, performing "garage"
music under a nom de plume.

Interesting. You can download music from the bands' website for free, but of course...blocked at work. Actually, the website isn't blocked, just when you actually try and download a song...DENIED! Oh well, I can wait a few hours til I get home. But I'm very excited to hear the rest of these songs. And Billy Joe (lead singer) says he's got about 45 songs written for the new album. Holy crap!!!!!!

EDIT - apparently 1994 was only 14 years ago...thanks Stacey! :)

Cleaning a Bathtub in 5 Minutes

Got your attention yet? Thought so! I don't know what got into me tonight, but I decided it was time to clean the ole bath tub. I've lived here for about 6 months now, and as a typical guy, never cleaned it. It was definitely time. A couple years ago, someone (Tara???) introduced me into the world of the Magic Eraser. So, I sprayed the tub down with some blee-ach and then just scrubbed away with the Magic Eraser. Before I knew it...clean bathtub!!!! It took Lauren (my roommate) more time to get a load of laundry together than it did for me to clean that thing!

So whaddya know? That was easy! I should do that more oft....NAHHHH!!!!

Super Bowl XLII CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!

The N.Y. Giants just pulled off one of the most unbelievable upsets in Super Bowl history!!!!! I still can't believe it!!!!!!

Earlier this week, Pacheatriots quarterback Tom Brady said, "We're only gonna score 17 points? haha okay". Who's laughing now you cocky piece of sh!t!?!???!?????

The Pacheatriots won their first 18 games but couldn't finish their dreams of a perfect season.

At the Super Bowl party I was at, while I was wearing my Giants jersey, no one else wore any Giants gear, but EVERY single person there (40+ people) were rooting for the Giants. It was AWESOME. And again, I STILL cannot believe the Giants just won the SUPER BOWL!!!!! Hope everyone else enjoyed it. Enjoy the pictures I found!
