I Know How to Hate

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

Kenny G is from Seattle. I said before I couldn’t think of a reason to hate Seattle. I stand corrected. Here it comes…yes…I feel it rising…the rage…all those hours stuck in elevators and waiting rooms listening to that goddam noodling saxophone…and he’s made millions…tens of millions of dollars…travesty…catastrophe…bad noise…fear and loathing…both a symptom and an…

Stirring the Pot

Monday, January 30th, 2006

It’s bad enough that we’re still six days away from the Super Bowl, meaning six more days of anxiety waiting for kickoff. I thought about going to the pep rally down at Heinz Field on Friday, but I decided against walking down. I wish I had–there were 30,000 people there, and it would’ve been fun…

Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

I don’t watch much network TV, there aren’t many shows I can even imagine myself watching. One of those shows is 24. I was a big fan of La Femme Nikita, and the producers of that show went on to do 24. But I never watched it, I don’t know if I was busy the…

Nothing To Say

Friday, January 27th, 2006

No football this weekend…I imagine myself frantically channel-surfing this weekend looking for an overlooked playoff game. My heart could use the rest after the last three weeks, believe me. There’s a pep rally down at Heinz Field at 5PM, but I think I’ll pass. I need to store up my pep (and vim) for the…

Mean Gene Sees the Future…But Not the Good Stuff

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

Mario Lemieux retired today, this time for good. The greatest talent in hockey history gave us an treasure trove of great memories, 2 Stanley Cups, and, hell, he saved the team from extinction. He’s the greatest athlete in Pittsburgh sports history, bar none. And this is a guy who had serious back and hip problems,…

Wow. Wowie wow wow

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

A little astonishment now and then adds spice to life. In our jaded, ironic, snarky world it’s almost embarassing to admit that one was astonished by something one saw or heard or did. I try my best to put on a front as a world-weary poseur, but there’s still too much of the romantic in…

One More

Sunday, January 22nd, 2006

What a game. In the title games the Steelers have lost over the years, they’ve made huge mistakes that killed their chances to win. They didn’t make those mistakes today. The pass that Champ Bailey missed, which Ward caught on the rebound, was a huge play. It could’ve been 7-0 Denver. Then Parker fumbles…but he’s…

Already a roller-coaster of a weekend, and the Steeler game still awaits. Firstly, congrats to Ryan, who, like, WON the first event at the L.A. Poker Classic. A tidy little six-figure cash. Bloggers have been making kills left and right lately. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that one (or all) of the G-Vegas crew…

Save Up the Luck

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

Last night was not a good one for me at the tables. I played in Wil’s tournament and played about as badly as one can play. First of all I was seated at CJ’s table, so I would’ve been wise to just fold until he sucked out a few players and one of us got…
