CuJo Calls It A Career

leave a comment »

Damn. CuJo never played in the Stanley Cup?

Joseph eventually clawed his way into the NHL as an undrafted free agent, en route to becoming an all-star, playoff hero and the fourth- leading winner among all goaltenders in league history. And on Tuesday, the 42-year-old brought the unlikely journey to a close…

Pundits have already begun debating Joseph’s candidacy for the Hockey Hall of Fame. Joseph earned 454 regular-season wins through his remarkable 19-year career, leaving him behind only Martin Brodeur (585, heading into play Tuesday night), Patrick Roy (551) and Ed Belfour (484) for the all-time lead.

The flip side is Joseph is also the winningest goaltender never to have won the Stanley Cup. And, thanks to a career that hop-scotched through St. Louis, Edmonton, Toronto, Detroit, Phoenix and Calgary, no one fan base can truly claim him as its own.

I don’t follow hockey enough to say he’s worthy to get into the Hockey Hall of Fame, but he was a favorite of mine for years. Didn’t know he was still around.

Watching Where You Pee Should Be Priority Number One

with one comment

Not a very remarkable story, but the last line made me laugh.

A student at a northeastern Pennsylvania Roman Catholic college has apologized for urinating on a public nativity scene. The student, 22, said Monday he “was being a drunken idiot” a day earlier when he urinated on the nativity scene in Wilkes-Barre’s public square.

He was charged with public drunkenness, indecent exposure, open lewdness and desecration of venerated objects. He said he plans to plead guilty at a Jan. 20 preliminary hearing.

The student met with officials King’s College in Wilkes-Barre on Monday. A school spokesman said he faces punishment ranging from a warning to expulsion.

He has vowed to quit drinking.

I have to say that I can’t stand college students. And by college students I mean the drunk assholes who start up shit only to come back with, “Oh I’m sorry I was drunk. You can’t fault me for *insert name of crime/action.*” All I have to say is I wish there was a mosque near where this moron lives and he chose to relieve himself on that property. And it’s not because I want him to pee on holy Muslim ground. It’s because I would probably approve of what will be done to this young man afterward. Jihads for everyone.

And damn. Punishment ranges from a warning to expulsion. That’s a pretty big gap there.

Uh-Oh, It’s Magic

I never heard about this until now…

Federal prosecutors have closed a two-year investigation into rape allegations against magician David Copperfield without filing charges.

The notice came in a brief court document filed Tuesday by Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan Roe.

The woman who made the complaint, a former Miss Washington contestant, said in a related civil lawsuit against Copperfield, whose real name is David Kotkin, that she met him during a performance in Kennewick and was invited to visit his private island in the Bahamas in July 2007.

The woman claimed that once she arrived, Copperfield sexually assaulted her.

The illusionist’s lawyers said he denied the allegations and called lawsuit “extortion for money, plain and simple.”

…and I can’t resist.

David Copperfield can make ANYTHING disappear.

I saw him years ago when he made a stop in Shittsburgh. Don’t remember much about the show except that he had a really long videotaped segment of him going through the Great Wall of China, or something like that. Was rather lame. What I did like was this one act where he tried to get out of bondage while a saw was descending on him. He failed. The saw chopped him in two and then was put back together. It reminded me of the scene in “Deep Blue Sea” where Samuel L. Jackson gets eaten by a shark early on in the movie. You don’t expect it so you can’t help but applaud.

What has this got to do with David’s rape allegations? No clue.

Having A Case Of The Avatar Blues

leave a comment »

So there’s this story about how a bunch of loons who watched “Avatar” are now depressed/suicidal because their planet isn’t a happy place with pretty meadows and hawt blue aliens.

James Cameron’s completely immersive spectacle “Avatar” may have been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora.

On the fan forum site “Avatar Forums,” a topic thread entitled “Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible,” has received more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans trying to help them cope. The topic became so popular last month that forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about the movie…

…A user named Mike wrote on the fan Web site “Naviblue” that he contemplated suicide after seeing the movie.

“Ever since I went to see ‘Avatar’ I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na’vi made me want to be one of them. I can’t stop thinking about all the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I got from it,” Mike posted. “I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the everything is the same as in ‘Avatar.’ “

I’m sure these are the same people who went into therapy (literally) after W. got re-elected in 2004; no big deal. Good God, look at the freaks that come out whenever a nutjob celebrity goes into court or some other facility. (Michael Jackson was a prime example.) But why am I talking about this story?

Because the photo that accompanied this story was awesome.

I don’t know what’s funnier. The person in front who looks like he’s about to cry or the guy behind him eating a pizza right out of the box.
