This may be a silly question but do you think Hextall as assistant GM of the Kings or GM of the Monarchs ever tries to help in the training of goalies? I'm guessing not though that would be pretty awesome.

I'm actually surprised we weren't higher.


Goin' back to the BMI, raisin' your kid thing. You guys will love this. Keep in mind, I've NEVER been the "skinny" girl. Always chubby (or whatever)...although athletic in school.

So my Mom breaks out all my old baby crap in anticipation for my kid. So she shows me a book that she got when I was born that is basically like an album where you can document all the little milestones.

I open it up and read it and it says that I was off formula and eating a rice mixture at 2 WEEKS old. Then there's another entry that I "graduated" to (pureed) MEAT and POTATOES AT 6 FRIGGIN' WEEKS OLD!! Later in the book, she writes that the Dr. wanted me on a diet at 2 yrs old! I'm like, "YA THINK MOM???" Christ, it's not like I was making myself ice cream sundaes at 2 ****ing years old!?!?!

I know things were different 35 yrs ago, but jeesh!!!

College football series -- Rutgers and UCLA...

http://www.nj.com/rutgersfootball/in...lay_twoga.html
Quote:

Continuing the trend of improving its non-conference schedule for the future, Rutgers announced Thursday afternoon that it will play a home-and-home series with Pac-10 power UCLA.

The series will start in the 2016 season at Rutgers Stadium and then conclude the following year, as the Scarlet Knights will travel out to Los Angeles.

"We are excited for our football program and especially for our fans to be playing UCLA," Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti said in a statement. "This series will have tremendous national appeal anchored in the two largest media markets in the country."

The two schools have never played in their long histories. But by the time that they meet in 2016, Rutgers will be in its 147th year of football and UCLA will be in its 97th.

Definitely eat to live for me. If I had the choice, I would never eat again.

I disagree. Eating and sleeping are the best parts of life (waking up is easily the worst, though).

EDIT: Before anyone asks: I'm 160 lbs, thank you very much.

Sleeping is nice, but I don't like that my body needs 8 hours of it to be completely rested (I usually sleep about 6-7). I forget the totals, but don't we spend like over a third of our whole lives sleeping? Seems like an awful big waste to me. If we only needed like 1-2 hours to be fully rested, I'd like that a lot more.

If you take HGH you'll find that you need a good deal less.

This was a great read...

Dany Heatley: like Stalin, but with a slightly better one-timer
Quote:
To live in Ottawa, to read the sports pages, to listen to the talk radio – it is to be exposed daily to the view that hockey player Dany Heatley ranks among history’s greatest monsters, right up there with Pol Pot and Betty White (she knows why).

Once one of the most popular people in the nation’s capital, along with Daniel Alfredsson and the city worker who finally plows your street three days after the blizzard, Heatley is now thoroughly despised, profanely assailed by the community as a quitter and a traitor. To be fair, a small number of Ottawa residents are still keen to give him the key to the city, though only if he agrees to accept it rectally.

This in itself is not surprising. Heatley only recently signed a long-term contract with the Ottawa Senators, at a salary that averages out to $7.5-million per year (or roughly $2.5-million per great game he had in 2008-09). Then, abruptly and unexpectedly during this off-season, he sent word that he wanted to be traded out of Ottawa for sucky-baby-based reasons. Not enough ice time. Too much criticism from the coach. Bedtime bottle of formula not warmed to correct temperature. That kind of thing.

What’s truly fascinating in all this is the utter ham-handedness with which Heatley has “managed” this situation. You’d think a guy who’s raking in millions might be willing to part with $10,000 or $20,000 for some top-notch strategic advice. Nothing fancy – just the basics: precondition the fans to expect an ultimatum, praise the community for its past support (…but golly, I’m an elite player in this league and want to go somewhere where the coaching staff sees me as such, etc. etc.), sit down with a sympathetic reporter and lay out the reasons for wanting out, enlist a teammate or two to speak out as a third-party supporter, maybe visit Ottawa and do a charity thing to emphasize the It’s Nothing Personal aspect of it all.

But nooooooooo. Heatley has done none of that. His trade request was crude and insulting and not couched by any (genuine or manufactured) love for Ottawa and its fans. He’s remained silent for weeks now, allowing the Senators to portray him as a total ****** and giving reporters and columnists nothing to write about except those douchey musings. And now, having demanded out, he’s gone and vetoed the only decent trade the Senators could come up with – naturally, without so much as a word as to why.

Would most Ottawa fans be down on Heatley no matter what right now? Absolutely. But the level of hatred in the city could have been diminished, and the degree to which he’s now viewed as a Problem Child in cities around the league could have been avoided entirely. Whoever is counseling this guy is giving the worst advice since an executive said to the head of NBC programming: “Here’s an idea – how about we revive Knight Rider?”

How great is it when you get an email from your boss at 2:00 on Friday telling you to take off the rest of the afternoon?

Heh. The media hype around him during his university days was the joke, though his professional career has been nothing short of hilarious.

He's the CFL equivalent to Lindros. Lumsden used his immense size to bowl his way into the record book against undersized Canadian university players only to find himself against oversized (former) American university players in the CFL. He'll never play a full season in his pro career.

The schools are to blame for obesity as well, they can't do anything that might hurt them at recess when they are in elementary school. I'm 21 and when I was in elementary school we were playing tackle football, they can't even play tag. Then you have all this crap about coming up with gym sports where nobody loses so their feelings don't get hurt. What a ****in joke.
