For those of you who haven't seen Cheap Seats on ESPN Classic yet, there will be a marathon on Thanksgiving Day. You will find out what "Here's what to look for" means and what the "Cheapies" are, not to mention who Ron Parker is.

It's also on it's normal time tonight at 10 and 10:30.

I find it a bit humorous that over the last few days, I have had a bunch of hits for people searching for some variation of "Terrell Owens Nicollette Sheridan Monday Night Football Intro Towel nudity MNF" or something along those lines. I haven't really posted anything on the topic yet, but apparently I have mentioned all those words at some point.... well, this might be the first time I have mentioned Nicollette Sheridan (is there one l or two in nicolette sheridan?).

For those of you who came to look for it, I don't have it, but I think you can find it at ifilm.

As an update to my post last Monday regarding teams that are in/out of the playoffs, we still don't have a mathematically eliminated team yet (at least I don't think so, maybe the way the schedules play out there is, but I'm not going to do that much researching).

Of the 3-win teams that I had as still alive last week, if they lost, I added them to the list. That puts KC, Tennessee, and Tampa Bay on the list. So the list is up to 12, with 20 still alive.

Analyzing the standings a bit more this week, some of the NFC teams might have to come off the list, but I'm sticking to my guns for now ... being that there is only 7-1 Philadelphia and 7-2 Atlanta leading the way, with 9 teams at 5-4 or 4-5, it really makes the 3-win teams very much alive, especially if Dallas can win tonight, and become one of those 4-5 teams. I guess what I am saying is that if I'm wrong about the teams I've put on the list premature, I'm guessing that it would be Dallas or Tampa Bay. That's it for now.... more next week.

I thought it was dumb when 1130 was using the slogan, but now, for some reason, 1270 felt it was a good idea to use "Remember the time you spent listening to "

So not only did someone come up with this line, someone else approved it, recorded it, and aired it. Then, someone else thought it was a good enough line to steal. I just don't get it.

To me, advertising is mostly for name recognition, so wouldn't it be better to just spend your thirty seconds saying your company name? Sure it would be boring, but wouldn't it be just as effective to hear "AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, AM 1270, ...." for 30 seconds?

Which reminds me, how many times during an interview do we have to hear, "We're talking to here on SportsRadio 1130 WDFN." I can kind of understand this type of thing back in the day when you had to scroll back and forth to find the radio station, and you weren't sure which station it was actually on (I know, there are still radios like that out, but most radios (especially car) are now digital), but now, I just don't see the point.
As I stated on the tag board over to the right, when I wanted to post this yesterday, blogger wasn't allowing me to post. so here it is..

Thank you

To those who served.

Happy Veterans Day (Belated).

I have been informed that it is Diwali. I don't know much about the holiday, sometimes known as the "Festival of Lights", but I do know that in college when Mo was dancing in a Diwali show, Bill liked to respond to phone calls for Mo saying that "he was out dancing."
Wow, very strange.... While I was clicking through "Next Blog" to get a random blog, I came across this post, which is the second reference that I've seen to "Donna Martin Graduates" in a week. Whilst watching "Cheap Seats" recently, they made a reference to it, too.
Picture of the Pistons in Fros (Larry Brown included) in an upcoming issue of GQ

The other day, this line from a song popped in my head... "Today you tell me something, y manana otra cosa"

I sit at my desk to eat my lunch and do a little surfing. Twice this week, the same person has come up to me, and started with, "I hate to bug you at lunch, but....." Well, if you hate to do it, then DON'T!!!!

I can understand if it's some type of an emergency, but both times it was minor things that were of no big deal. Furthermore, it could have been summarized in about 30 seconds, but it took this person about 5 minutes repeating stuff over and over, even after I answered the question.

What's even worse is that I have a cube with a half wall (only goes up about 3-4 feet or so) and am on an aisle, so the person could just stand in front of me and talk, but she came around the side, and stared at my screen. Not that I was surfing any improper sites, but I hate when people do that.

UPDATE: She just asked someone else the exact same question, and it looks like she just went over to a third person to ask the same question. So (1) if it wasn't so important that it didn't have to be answered during lunch, why did you bug me in the first place, and (2) If you are going to ask someone else's opinion, don't ask me in the first place.

OK, I'm done venting for now. Enjoy the show.

There are many times where I think of things to blog, and then forget to blog them when it comes time to blog. Here's another one of those.

Many months ago, I tried the new Crest toothpaste flavors. The three flavors were Cinnamon, Herbal Mint, and Citrus (they had cooler names, but I forget what they were). The Cinnamon was good, the Herbal Mint was good, but the Citrus, not so good. At first, I thought, why citrus? Orange Juice (or any citrus juice) and toothpaste do not mix.... don't we already know that? Although that awful taste was not the taste of the Citrus flavored toothpaste, it wasn't that good.

More recently, I ventured into the newer flavor, Vanilla Mint. MMmmmmm.... this is a good flavor. It's not overpowering, but the vanilla is definitely there. Very good. I like it.

I wonder why the sudden kick with Vanilla? I've always liked vanilla. When many people think of vanilla as plain, I've always enjoyed it. I've been known to go to a Baskin-Robbins/31 Flavors type place, and have a vanilla ice cream, with all the other options available to me. But in the past few years, it seems that many things are coming out in vanilla flavors.... vodka, cola, toothpaste. Don't get me wrong, I like it, I'm just curious why all of a sudden.

Here is a good time killer. You pick a sit-com character, and then answer yes/no questions (answer 'no' if you don't know the answer), and it will guess who you are. I've done it a few times, and sometimes it got it in about 10 questions, some took longer.... I didn't count, but it seemed to be around 30 or so. So far it guessed right when I picked Joey Tribianni(sp?), Kelly Kaposki(sp?), Molly Hudson, and Frank Dreben. Put in the comments who you were, and if it got it right or wrong.... I'm still trying to stump it without picking a real obscure character.
Will you be as glad as I am when the bye weeks will be done after next week?
Now that there are no longer any undefeated or defeated teams left, and we are halfway through the season, we can start eliminating teams from the playoffs. Now I don't believe any team is mathimatically out of it just yet (Miami is awfully close), but I think we can put the the one-win teams on the "out of the playoffs" list. So good-bye to SF, Carolina, and Miami.

Can a three-win team still make it in? Of course they can mathematically. 9-7 can make it in, so they would need to go 6-2 the rest of the way to make it. As Oakland hasn't had their bye week yet, they are 3-6, and would have to go 6-1 the rest of the way. I just don't see it. Oakland is now on the list. So we're down to 28.

Of other three-win teams, Dallas, Washington, Cleveland, Cincinatti, and Buffalo are all 4 games out of first place in their respective divisions. I know their are two wild card spots, but I don't see these teams making it with so many other teams in the wild card mix. You are all on the list. We're down to 23.

The other 3-win teams are only two or three games out of first place in their division (Arizona-2, TB-3, NO-3, Chicago-2, KC-3, Tennessee-2), which puts them well in reach of the playoffs.

If you are .500 or above, you are obviously in playoff contention. So I see 23 still in it, and 9 are out.

I saw the beginning of the Miami/Cleveland game last night, and when they were doing the player introductions, the announcer at the stadium said that the introductions were brought to you by Florida Light and Power, or something like that, which I am assuming is the power company in that area. What I found humorous is that when they started the Miami Heat introductions, they turned the lights out.

I need to go to the post office and get me some of these....

I find these maps interesting..... there was a similar one after the 2000 election. It's amazing how close the race was with the amount of red on this map.

My obligatory election day post:

I was surprised when I went to the polls yesterday after work, and was in and out in about 10 minutes. Barely any wait at all. Woo-hoo
I know I'm not the first to say it, but the championship belts the Pistons wore for the ring ceremony last night were pretty goofy.
CBS has put dr vegas on hiatus. I've watched 3 of the 5 (or has it been 6) episodes. It's been decent. Nothing spectacular, but enough to keep me watching. I wonder if its timeslot had anything to do with it. They should try moving it to another night.
Blogger is finally letting me post

Is Father of the Pride on its way out? This article states that NBC has pulled it for November sweeps. Has any of the new fall shows (for any network) been cancelled yet? I'm not counting Last Comic Standing. I just haven't been following TV like I used to.
I don't understand why people encourage other people to vote. If less people vote, your vote is worth more. Seriously though, I don't like the encouraging of voting just for the sake of voting. You should only vote if you have educated yourself on the candidates and know why you are voting for or against any particular candidate. So go and vote..... if you know what you are doing.
How would you like to come home to this message on your machine:

“Dave, this is Ben Wallace of the Detroit Pistons. Just wanted to let you know that you won the lucky fan drawing and you will get a championship ring (tonight). Holler back.”
Last night, I was reviewing some information for the election. I was looking at responses to a survey done for the candidate for the US House in the 10th district of Michigan. I found this article which shows the response from the Natural Law Party candidate Anthony America. Something tells me that wasn't his given name at birth. Maybe he's related to Johnny Spirit. Anyway, here are the questions and the responses:

1. Please state your position on the war in Iraq and explain what role you believe the United States should play over the next several months. Should we maintain a substantial level of troops there and should the U.S. military continue to provide national security for the Iraqis?

2. What economic policies do you advocate to create new jobs and to slow the movement of American jobs being outsourced overseas? Should President Bush's tax cuts be made permanent?

3. What changes should be made to our health care system to make health care more accessible to the uninsured and more affordable for employers and their workers?

ANTHONY AMERICA, Natural Law Party

Personal: 62, Port Huron

Education: Self-educated.

Occupation: Real estate broker.

Background: Life-long "Democrat" running on the Natural Law Party ballot. A political activist for the rights of all Americans.

1. Bullfeathers. Saudi Arabia is responsible for 9/11. Leave Iraq and take back our money. Four thousand dead Americans, more than 1,000 soldiers dead, and Osama bin Nasty is still alive. Iraq is Pappy Bush's war. What a waste, what a crime.

2. Unite Canada, Mexico and the U.S.A. as one nation. From the North Pole to the Equator - this will be our motto. Invest our money and corporations in the Russian economy for this could be our new frontier. Build a trans-Siberian railroad linked to Alaska. Tax help for the working man, not crooks and the wealthy.

3. A Canadian-type health system would be fair to everyone. Regulate doctors, hospitals and all medical treatments due to all the greed, malpractice and harm and death caused by uncaring, careless and ignorant personnel and crooked doctors who give people operations they don't need, so they (the doctors) become wealthy.

I almost want to vote for him for the humor value.

As I click on "next blog" and look at random blogs, I am reminded of the old Saturday Night Live skit with Mike Myers on Sprockets. I read through a post or two, and then think... "Your story has become tiresome", which then triggers other lines, such as "touch my monkey" and "now is the time on Sprockets when we dance" although I am able to control myself and not dance, mostly because I am at work.
Phily is the last of the unbeatens. So much for my Super Bowl of Unbeatens.
Is anyone else getting a bagillion election related calls on their phone? Maybe it's time we got caller ID.

One year, three months, seven days

In the 1995 NBA Draft, Detroit drafted Theo Ratliff at #18. What I find interesting is that Detroit has had on their roster the first 4 picks from that draft (Joe Smith, Antonio Mcdyess, Jerry Stackhouse, and Rasheed Wallace). They have also had on their roster #13 pick Corliss Williamson and #17 pick Bob Sura.
Is the nation really divided by the election, or is it that neither candidate is all that appealing (to swing/independent voters) that people are "settling" on both sides?

While watching the end of The West Wing last night (don't worry, Russ, I won't spoil it in case you haven't seen it yet), I had this feeling that I was envisioning a motorcycle and a tank of sharks.
Wednesday, October 27, 2004
I've been clicking that "Next Blog" thingy at the top right of blogs, and reading some random blogs. What I don't understand is the mixed-case thing. Is there anything more annoying than trying to read something with random capital/lowercase letters. in cAsE YoU doN't KnOw wHAt i'M tALkiNg aBouT, It lOOkS soMEtHiNg lIkE tHIs. i jUsT doN't gET iT bECauSe iT taKeS mUCh loNgEr tO tYpE, aNd is A PaIn iN thE aRse tO rEaD.
I was looking at some of my posts, and I posted a bunch of words in hope to get some hits on people searching for those topics. I don't think any of them worked. Oh well.

Also, I asked for someone to convince me who I should vote for, and no one has even attempted yet. I guess I have to make my decision on my own.

Tuesday, October 26, 2004
The phrase "I'll tell you what...." really doesn't make much sense when you look at just those words.
I find this story a bit humorous.... well, not the story itself. It's about the oldest man alive and how he's a Red Sox fan. The part I find humorous is that it states that he "retired as a railway postal clerk in 1957." He retired almost 50 years ago, and he was 67 at the time. For some reason, that makes me laugh.

I'm still rooting for the undefeated Philly/NE Superbowl. I wonder if it has ever happened in sport, where two teams have gone into the championship game undefeated. Anyone? Anyone?
I like the new look, but it's basically the template that I used. I need to put my own stamp on it, but I just haven't figure out what that is yet. I will probably try a few things out in the next few weeks... not that you give a rip.

I find it humorous when watching baseball games on tv when a pitch is thrown, and the ump calls it a ball or strike (whichever is the opposite of what the home town fans want) and the crowd boos at the call. True there are some seats where one my have a good angle to tell whether the pitch was a ball or strike, but I would have to guess that in 95% (maybe more) of the seats, there is no way of telling if any single pitch is a ball or strike (unless it's way off). It just makes me laugh when thousands of people start booing about something they have no clue about. Then again, I comment all the time on things I have no clue about.
This product should be illegal, and people who use them should be sent to prison for life. I can see this getting way out of hand. Why would anyone want to turn it off?!?!?!?

Trade deadline day in the NFL.... Usually comes and goes without too much mention. Mid season moves in the NFL aren't all that common, but for some reason there are many potential moves being talked about. Jerry Rice to Seattle has already happened (barring something happening with his physical), Keenan McCardell, Brad Johnson, Larry Johnson, Quinten Griffith, Chris Hovan.... all big names being talked about in trade. I wonder why so much this year, or maybe I've just been oblivious to it in past years.

As they continue to tweak the BCS formula, is it just me, or does it keep getting closer and closer to the way we had it before.....the average of the two polls.
We now have our last team without a win... Miami. Still three undefeateds.... I wonder if we'll have two going into the Super Bowl. That would be pretty impressive, and would have to be the most watched Super Bowl ever... even without Janet Jackson. That's what I'm rooting for the rest of the season.

Random thought of the day:

I've never been on a cruise. I've never seen a cruise ship in person. I know they are massive structures, but for some reason, I can't grasp the concept of how large it is. I know what I am picturing is too small, because I know that they contain pools, basketball courts, tennis courts, movie theaters, etc. But for some reason, I just can't picture the size of it.
My wife and I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things that were needed prior to our weekly shopping trip. With about 5 items in hand, we went to the UScan, or wait, it was Farmer Jack, I think they are called "Express yourself" or something like that. Anyway, after scanning all our items, one of them being chocolate soy milk, our receipt spit out of the receipt printer, and something spit out of the coupon printer. It wasn't a coupon at all. It was an advertisement for soy milk (not sure if it was the one we purchased or a different brand). My wife looked at it, looked at me and said, "A crummy commercial?.... Son of a bitch!"
I heard who won the Last Comic Standing. It will air on Comedy Central Saturday night. If you want to know who won the big prize, email me, and I will think about letting you know. I read it on the Internet, so it must be true (it was on the good internets, not the bad ones).
I got a sunburn at the football game last weekend. I was looking online for suggestions to dealing with the inconvenience, even though it's almost gone, just some peeling that needs to go, but I'm resisting the urge to pick at it (what is with the urge to pick at stuff like sunburns and scabs... or am I just strange that way.... I know I'm strange, but does this make it worse?)

Anywho, I came across this one article with the following suggestions:

- Resist the temptation and don't pick at the skin. Allow the dead skin sheets to detach on their own.
- Remove detached skin carefully and slowly. Don't rip skin sheets off or you risk removing more skin than you intended.
- Apply antiseptic cream to the newly revealed skin to reduce the risk of infection.
- Consider covering up with clothing to stop other people from picking at your peeling skin.

OK, so according the the first suggestion, I'm not supposed to peel away the dead skin, and let it come off on it's own. Then the second suggestion tells me to remove it carefully.... Huh?

But the one that really gets me is the last one. Now I can't really cover my forehead that easily, but who goes up to other people and picks there sunburnt skin?!?!?!
From an article regarding University of Pitt's football coach:

Pitt athletic director Jeff Long neither defended football coach Walt Harris yesterday nor gave him a vote confidence despite rampant reports and speculation that Harris' job is in jeopardy.

ummm..... what's the difference between giving a vote of confidence and defending him? Isn't that the same thing? Isn't that like saying, "He didn't say no, nor give a negative response"? Maybe it was just a typo.

There is a street a few miles from where I live called Atkins. I've been wanting to go and hang a loaf of bread from the sign.
On "The Big Show" yesterday, Art and Doug were talking about whether or not they were rooting for the Red Sox. Art was arguing that he's sick and tired of all the press that the Red Sox get, and their history and tradition. I think that the Red Sox get the most publicity by the fact that it has been so long since they have won a championship, and the "curse". I think that if they do in fact win the World Series, in the long run would help Art's case of them getting publicity than it would if they continued to lose.
I had predicted that Father of the Pride would be the first new show to be cancelled this year. Apparently I was wrong. Last Comic Standing has been sort of cancelled with just one episode left (the final episode will air on Comedy Central). Instead of showing the results show of the final voting, NBC last night had a Father of the Pride "marathon" (since when is 3 episodes a marathon?). This season of Last Comic Standing wasn't the greatest, but I thought it was decent enough. One would have thought they could have at least made a half hour show to let us know the final results.

"non-star card with one left over"

If anyone has played a game where they have said that, please let me know. I think my family might be the only family who has this game.
If you know the answer to the following, please email me or use the tagboard, because I'm curious.

If you donate blood, will that lower your cholesterol? My first thought was no, but then as I thought about it, you are taking blood (with cholesterol) out of your body, and your body is going to produce new blood to replace it. Won't that new blood be free of cholesterol? Now granted, if you continue the same eating habits, the cholesterol would become the same, but say you were starting to reduce the amount of cholesterol that you took into your body. Wouldn't the net result of donating blood and producing new blood result in having lower cholesterol without the donation?

I need to make a correction to a previous post about Zingers. I wrote that they were a Hostess product, but they are actually Dolly Madison. But I think they are the same company or are sister companies. How come it's never brother companies, it's always sister companies, or sister stations.

When I typed Hostess, I was reminded of the "Hoster" story (ok, so only Bill might remember that one).
Note to self: You can get sunburn in October.
So long, Superman.
I saw an Art Van commercial this morning, advertising their "Factory Authorized" mattress sale. Why would one care if a sale is Factory Authorized? If I'm getting $100 off, am I not going to accept it if it isn't factory authorized? Or am I going to be more likely to get $100 off from a factory authorized sale rather than $100 off a non-factory authorized sale?
We're down to 3 undefeateds, and 2 defeateds. I'm sticking with my original choice of Philly for the last of the undefeateds, one reason being that I'm sticking with my original so I'm not considered a flip-flopper. The other reason is that NE and NYJ will play each other soon, so one of them will drop (or I suppose they could tie). My choice of SF to be the last team to win has won, so I'm wrong there, and I shall move to my second choice of Miami. We will know that result next week, as the last to winless team face off against each other.

NBC just announced that they will be adding a 5 second delay on their NASCAR broadcast (I think that was the first time I mentioned NASCAR on this blog, and I hope it's the last, except for me mentioning it again in this sentence). There have been delays added to many sporting events recently since certain things have been seen or heard, that shouldn't have been.

I always thought that live TV was on a time delay. And what's the big deal? What does it matter if you see something 5 seconds after it happens? Is it really that big of a deal?
Well, it took me 12 years, 4 months, and 25 days since I've been eligble, but I finally did it. I gave blood today. I have meant to give blood ever since I turned 18 and became eligible to give. And I've always come up with some excuse to avoid doing it. A few weeks ago, a sign up sheet went around work, and I signed up, thinking, "if I sign up, I won't back out this time." Even though that little reminder card didn't hold me to it, and I could have backed out at any time.

So I remembered and forgot about it on and off this past week, and then totally forgot about it today until I went to lunch (my appointment was at 1:45) and saw the blood drive stuff in the cafeteria, and thought to myself, "oh crap, I have less than 2 hours to worry about this." I was a bit nervous going in, but what made it worse is that while waiting to take my questionairre, someone at the cookies and juice table fainted. Well that made me a little more nervous. I know nothing about blood pressures, but mine was 120/96, and she asked if I was nervous, cuz it was a bit high. I'm not sure how high that is. The last time I had a physical (about 5 or 6 years ago) I was told it was on the high side. That reminds me, I need to get a physical one of these days.

Anyway, I know it's not a huge (or as Donald would say..."Uuuuge") thing that I did it, since people do it everyday... well, not the same person everyday, because you have to wait 56 days inbetween. But I'm glad that I've done it, know that I can do it, and will do it again.... hopefully every 2 months or so.

But I'm happy, I got my sticker, so be nice.
My "Last Comic Standing" post of the week.... I think it will be either Dave Morell or Alonzo Bolden. I haven't decided which. What I like about each of them is that I don't think either of them has repeated any jokes throughout the competition.

Is it the weekend yet?

Zingers don't get the credit they deserve. Usually when one thinks of Hostess, they think of Twinkies and King Don (formerly Ding Dongs). Ho-Hos and Cupcakes, and fruit pies. One item that rarely gets mentioned with the rest is Zingers.

If you haven't had a Zinger before, they come in a few different varieties, but my favorite are the yellow ones. It's basically a twinkie with icing on top. I had forgotten about Zingers until recently, and I had to think to myself, why would you want a Twinkie if you could have this? It's a twinkie with icing. What's not good with icing??

If you haven't had a zinger before, go out and reward yourself and have one.
Last night, during the debate, John Edwards said, "The American people saw John Kerry on Thursday night. They don't need the vice president or the president to tell them what they saw." and then proceeded to tell us what we saw.

I give credit to the Vice President. When he was done sharing his thoughts, he stopped talking. He didn't continue blabbing until his time was up. Most times, he did use all of his alloted time, but there were a few instances where he was done saying what he needed to answer the question, and stopped.

I still don't know who I am voting for yet.

Maybe i'm not watching enough tv lately, but I can't recall seeing any 10 10 220 commercials recently. Or 10 10 anything commercials for that matter.
Horatio Sans cracks me up. When he was doing Elton John on Weekend Update, for some reason, I couldn't stop laughing when he pointed to the camera with one hand, and then pretended to keep playing the piano with the other hand. I guess you had to see it.

I thought this was funny.
Being a numbers guy, one would think that I would be totally into baseball, with all the statistical numbers it seems to have. Moreso than any other sport, it seems like baseball has statistical numbers coming out of its ears (does a baseball have ears?).

What's odd, is not only do I have a hard time getting into baseball (don't get me wrong, I follow how the local team is doing, and watch parts of games to catch the score), but all the statistics seem to drive me away more. Sometimes it seems like they make up more statistics just to have more numbers to throw at you. Can you imagine if they had the same stats in other sports? We would know the completion percentage of every QB against a 3-4 vs 4-3, when the defense blitzes, when the defense is in a zone, QBs INTs when throwing Hail Mary's at the end of a half/game, # of receptions of a WR when facing a left-handed corner, stats vs a corner that is 1-3/4-5/6+ inches shorter, number of yards the RB gets when he has a full back blocking, number of yards gained when in a 3 WR set, the number of times a WR/RB was tackled by a "touchdown saving tackle" (that's for you, Russ)....

I'm glad there aren't all those stats, or else I would overthink my fantasy team every week. Although I do wish I knew how many points Chauncey Billips would score if he took all the shots, during day games, on courts that are on top of Ice Rinks vs left-handed defenders. As strange as that sounds, is it any different than knowing the RC27, during night games, on turf, vs LHP? (all stats that are kept track of for baseball).

OK, I'm done...... for now.
I know I've complained about this many of times, but I still hear it over and over again. News anchors continue to refer to the President as "Mr. Bush" instead of "President Bush". I've have yet to hear Senator Kerry referred to as "Mr. Kerry". I'm not saying it hasn't happened, but I haven't heard it. Someone please explain this to me.
I was watching the news last night, and they were talking about Mount Saint Helens, and they said, "Experts predict that it could erupt at any time."

Is that really a prediction? The only way they are going to be wrong is that if it doesn't erupt ever again for the rest of time. Are there people out there getting paid for making these predictions? I find out once again that I am in the wrong business.
Jax fell from the list of unbeatens. KC has a chance to get out of the beatens tonight. I'm sticking with my original choices of Philadelphia and SF as the last of the unbeatens and beatens. My second place choices are NE and Miami.

Not that my posts were great before, but they have seemed to be pretty lame lately. I'm not sure what I'm going for in my posts, but there's not much to them. Oh well, you're still reading.... all two of you, and the occasional person who comes hear searching for Patricia Heaton nude, or Jennifer Garner nude, or Christopher Walken Cowbell skit, or even Spongebob nude or clothed. To those people, I'm sorry to disappoint you.
I've never been a fish person.... that is eating fish. I have some weird foods that I don't like, mostly because it's not the taste that bothers me as much as the texture. Fish is one of them. I haven't tried a lot of fish, but pretty much every time I do try it, I don't really enjoy it. In an effort to be healthier, I thought that I should try to start eating fish occasionally. Even if I didn't like it, I knew it was good for me.

A few months ago, we had fish sticks, and breaded fillets (the kind you buy frozen in a box from Gorton's or some brand like that). It wasn't bad, but my wife has told me that it's not really eating fish.... better than I was before, but not really getting the benefits.

I haven't hand anything fish related since, until this week, we tried tuna steaks. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed it. Not that I would choose it over beef, but it was good. I think most of my surprise was the texture. The meat was more meaty than fishy in texture.

I think tuna is now going to make it into the rotation. I'll have to try salmon now, and see if that is any good.
