Labor Of Love

leave a comment »

And finally, on Super Bowl Sunday, here’s another example of why Steeler fans are different from me and you.

An expecting area Steelers fan was worried she would be in labor during Super Bowl weekend and asked her doctor to induce her labor early.

“As soon as he told me my due date, I said, ‘No, that’s not possible. That’s the weekend of the Super Bowl, that’s not going to work,'” said Carrie Welling, the expectant mother.

One Hell Of A Freezer Burn

leave a comment »

I’ve had steaks languish in the freezer for a few months before; I’d shudder to think what this 20-year old meat would have looked like. Also, how exactly was this meat discovered after 20 years anyway?

Preemptive Candy Caution

leave a comment »

Two of Britain’s candy makers are now putting warning labels on their products that tell consumers these products should be part of a balanced diet.

Two of Britain’s top sweet-makers are to put warning labels on their chocolate bars and other products advising consumers how their favourite treats should be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet.

Cadbury Trebor Bassett and Masterfoods UK, the makers of confectionery such as Dairy Milk and Mars chocolate bars, said today they will include a “Be treatwise” message on millions of their products in future.

The logo informs the consumer about guideline daily amounts (GDAs) ? how much of each nutrient the government recommends people should eat ? and advises the consumer to “Be active for 30 minutes”.

This of course means these warning labels will be appearing soon across the Pond in the United States. That is if lawsuits by 500-lb. plantiffs who didn’t know eating a dozen Hershey bars per day was bad for them don’t sprout up first.

Bush/Hitler v 2093489203

leave a comment »

Well, it’s nice to know Bush is no longer being compared to Hitler. According to Hugo Chavez, he’s now worse than old Adolf. Oh, and speaking of Hitler, not only did he want to kill those people in New Orleans affected by Hurricane Katrinia, he also wants them to stay in jail.

Rich, Cuba-Style

leave a comment »

Castro is going after the “new rich” in his communist utopia. In other words, those who can afford microwave popcorn and peanut butter. That’s some crazy stuff; I didn’t even know they had microwaves in Havanna.

Eminent Stupidity

leave a comment »

For all you New Hampshire bitches that voted against taking Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s house in order to build a hotel that would bring in more revenue for “the greater good” of your area, don’t start whining when the State confiscates your land to give to some developer wanting to build condos or a strip mall. Maybe Souter could rent you out a room at his place.

NFL HOF 2006 Class

leave a comment »

The 2006 NFL Hall of Fame inductee class includes quarterbacks Troy Aikman and Warren Moon, along with the now-deceased defensive end Reggie White. One quote I found funny regarding this story was from White’s wife, Sara, who said, “Every city embraced Reggie as a player and as a person.” I’m not so sure San Francisco took Reggie in with open arms…

I was driving home from Patriots country early Sunday morning when the news came through: Reggie White was dead. And I wasn’t sad in the slightest.

White was part of the team that beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. As a football fan, I can never forgive him for that.

Off the field, he was an unapologetic homophobe who stood as an anti-gay icon for gay-hating people everywhere.

Take a look at these comments from Reggie White – just a sampling of what he said in his life:

* “Let me explain something when I’m talking about sin, and I’m talking about all sin. One of the biggest ones that has been talked about that has really become a debate in America is homosexuality.”

* “I’ve often had people ask me, would you allow a homosexual to be your friend. Yes, I will. And the reason I will is because I know that that person has problems, and if I can minister to those problems, I will.”

* “But the Bible strictly speaks against it, and because the Bible speaks against it, we allow rampant sin including homosexuality and lying, and to me lying is just as bad as homosexuality, we’ve allowed this sin to run rampant in our nation, and because it has run rampant in our nation, our nation is in the condition it is today.”

* “I’m offended that homosexuals will say that homosexuals deserve rights.”

* “Homosexuality is a decision, it’s not a race. People from all different ethnic backgrounds live in this lifestyle. But people from all different ethnic backgrounds also are liars and cheaters and malicious and back-stabbing.”

Stories are now coming out that he had regretted making those statements. These stories always come out after someone is gone. But, if he regretted them, why did he not make them right? Why didn’t he go to colleges and high schools and state legislatures – where he made those terrible comments – and correct them?

…but who am I to question a grieving widow?

Another person elected to this year’s hall of fame class was John Madden. Among his accomplishments include an extremely short-lived NFL career (he got hurt in his first pre-season as a Philadelphia Eagle and never laced up for another game), a successful coaching career with the Oakland Raiders that saw him as the winningest coach of the 1970s, a broadcasting stint that never seems to end, and a dominant video game franchise to his name. Madden is one of those people you either love or hate, and while his best days in the broadcasting booth are long behind him, I’m still a fan. It’s true his insights aren’t that, well, insightful, but let the man do his thing until he decides to call it quits.
