Got Cake? We’re Gonna Live Blog It

Look.  Richard Harris was "A Man Called Horse".  Have you seen it? You should.  He was a bad, bad man. A tough man.  So, why then--in 1968--did he feel the need to sing a song like MacArthur Park?

It's an age-old mystery, rivaled only now by this question:

Why would Ryan Suter and his BFF Zach Parise go to Minnesota where they'll never win anything more than a division crown (if that) when they could have gone to Detroit or Chicago or Pittsburgh, where Cups would have been guaranteed?

Someone left the cake out in the rain

I don't think that I can take it

'Cause it took so long to bake it

And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no

He left his frigging cake out in the rain.  And he can't take it.  Why? Because it took so damn long to bake it.  And now the Ingalls sisters are in Walnut Grove with the barn dances and the one-room schools and that little bitch Nellie Olson running roughshod over the whole damn town.  No Cups, but plenty of family and love and cake.

And now they're here (in Detroyet) tonite, where they could have been all along. 

Confusion rules the day when it comes to Dick Harris, Horse, horrible songs and the Ingalls sisters. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW.

That is funny.  I think they are going to downgrade their video game medal for launching missiles from 8000 miles away,, hopefully.
The Indian Springs policeman finally drove up and asked me what I was doing, standing their next to the elementary school with a camera.

I saw a spoof e-mail shooting around of proposed UAV operator medals…one of them was a PS3 controller hanging from a ribbon.

Indian Springs sure has grown.  I went there once in June 92 when we had a jet divert in there while TDY to Nellis.  Went back the summer of 05 and didn’t recognize the place.

So Detroit “doesn’t look right” now?  Dipshits.  Maybe it has to do with them having to play 7 on 5.

Don’t know if I mentioned but my retirement was approved so this June I’ll be heading back to the motherland.  Hoping to make it to Detroit for my first wings game in person next fall and am going to try like hell to make it to as many Griffins games as possible since I’ll only be like 30 min away.

Hell…three weeks ago our AMBIENT temp was -28. I think the windchill was like -50 or some such silliness.

They closed the flightline because there’s limits to how cold we can allow the guys to go outside during peacetime.

Yeah they’ve played fairly well most of the time, but a few horrible moments outweighed the rest of the game.

There are games like this during any season, but with only 18 games left in this Pee Wee season it has exaggerated signficance with so few home games remaining.

I wonder if the Wings are experiencing a fall off in ticket sales.  Ken Kal just said they are offering prizes for renewing season tickets.  Flat screen TVs, entertainment centers - some guy won $10,000 today!  Hell, I’ll buy a season ticket if they’ll give me $10,000.  What’s up with that?

What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time it was in the 80’s in northern Mi causing the apple trees to blossom and of corse the frosts came and killed whole apple and cherry crop.

Probably a bit more than mine did.  We had actually looked at it last February when I was initially looking at retiring but somebody snagged it up before we could get the financng set up.  I was on the phone with my dad on fathers day last summer and he drove by the place “Hey, that place on M82 has a for sale sign in front of it”  A couple seconds later I hear the tires screeching and my mom screaming in the background “KEN WHAT THE FUCH ARE YOU DOING”

WIthin a few minutes I started getting texts with pictures in it…the guy who bought it from under us was a contracter and REALLY done some work to the place.  smile
