As we all know, 2011 is coming to an end at midnight tonight. Thank god. 2011 saw the United States rack up more debt than in the last 200 years combined, but on the bright side the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. Since 2011 pretty much sucked in my opinion, I am going to give you the top 5 things I am looking forward to in 2012.
5. Season 5 of Mad Men- If you haven’t watched Mad Men before, you are missing out on probably the best show on television. Don Draper is the man, and working in an advertising agency where you drink all day and get paid is awesome. You have a few weeks before the new season starts so go on Netflix and catch up.
4. Summer Olympics in London- I’m not sure why but I was really into the last Summer Olympic games. Maybe it was just because of Michael Phelps but I am excited to watch again this year. Hopefully Jerome Simpson will be representing the USA in gymnastics so we can finally beat those 10 year olds from China. Simpson’s frontflip last week could have cleared ten of those Chinese girls easily. I wonder if Phelps is in the years Olympics? Probably not since he’s been pokin the smot lately.
3. Season 5 of Jersey Shore- I am excited for Jersey Shore to be over. I do enjoy the show but it is embarrassing. The fact that these idiots are making hundreds of thousands of dollars to make a fool of themselves makes me want to throw up/ sign up to be on the next season. Get drunk, fight people, and visit other countries and get paid for it sounds pretty good but thank god it’s the last season. Salud to that.
2. Barak Obama being voted out of Office (fingers crossed)- Come on America. I don’t care who you vote for, I don’t care if Mickey Mouse wins as a write in this year. As long as Obama is not in office I will be happy. That guy has done nothing good for this country and spends all his time filling out college basketball brackets and going to sporting events. How about you do some work and get some people some jobs.
1. December 21, 2012- The Mayans predicted it. It must be true. But thank God. My college loan payments of roughly $80,000 are set to start being paid in December 2012, so lets hope those Mayans were right. What are the Mayans going to do if it doesn’t happen though? Their calendar ends that day, everything they have been living for. Whatever. Plus, if the world ends then Obama certainly can’t run this country for another 4 years regardless of the amount of idiots who vote for him. December 20th will be a night to remember, or probably not remember. And that picture is exactly how I see it happening. All of us just like avatars floating into the sky. Sure, why not.
Happy New Year!
Tonight’s game started off in a unsual way. Two fights in four seconds. Bruins enforcer Lane MacDermid squared off in a disappointing “fight” to start the game, ending almost as soon as it started. The following face-off, Marc Cantin and Monarchs Rob Mignardi dropped the gloves for a good bout. 36 seconds later, Justin Johnson scored his first goal of the season. Coincidence that the Monarchs biggest enforcer scores seconds after two fights? The game quickly settled down, and Linden Vey seemed to be all over the ice for the Monarchs, nearly scoring on a few great chances in the first period. Vey finally found the back of the net on a beautiful set-up pass from Thomas Hickey 6 minutes into the 2nd period, but he was quickly answered by Providence’s Josh Hennessy. It was all Monarchs after that. Robby Czarnick and J.D. Watt added goals in the 2nd to give the Monarchs a nice 4-1 cushion going into the 3rd period.
Lane MacDermid seemed to be out to hit every guy in sight in the 3rd. I guess I would be like that too if half of my ice time was spent in the penalty box. Johnson tried to go after MacDermid after a questionable hit in the corner with the clock winding down, but MacDermid clearly wanted nothing to do with him. The game ended with a scuffle, and it looks like the Monarchs and Bruins will be ringing in the New Year in a good one on Saturday night.
So unfortunately, because I live in New England, I wasn’t able to watch the Broncos game. I like to think of it as a Christmas miracle. But I pretty much got everything completely wrong in my post earlier this week about what would happen this weekend. Denver got blown out, Tebow threw 4 picks. Pretty embarrassing considering Buffalo lost at home to the Dolphins last week. With that being said, I am not surprised. Listen, Tebow’s mojo runs on Jesus’ interest in every game. Would you want to work just hours before you’re two thousand eleventh birthday? I don’t think so. The fact that Jesus doesn’t even have a retirement plan is just beyond me. You have illegal immigrants getting food stamps and social security and Jesus has worked miracles for over two thousand years and the guy still has to work.
With that being said, lets just give Tim a break here. He wasn’t into the game at all. He was probably spending all week getting the final touches ready for his best friends birthday party on Sunday. If Jesus can turn water into wine I have no doubts that he can lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl. If Tebow played flawlessly every week and the Broncos won every week, Jesus’s cover would be blown. It’s kind of like if we all saw Santa, then all would be lost. Have faith. Tebow will win next week and the Broncos will make the playoffs.
Happy Birthday Jesus!
It’s Christmas Eve and I have held it in long enough. I am so sick and tired of hearing Happy Holidays and how people are offended by Merry Christmas. We are in America. 60-75% of our country identify themselves as Christian. On December 25th, our society recognizes the day as Christmas Day. It isn’t Happy Holiday Day, it isn’t any other holiday either. Why is it such a big deal for commercials to recognize Christmas? Like my good friend Obee talked about, some communities are even putting up Christmas trees and calling them Holiday trees so they don’t offend anyone. Um hello. If you are offended by a Christmas tree and people saying Merry Christmas then you are truly ignorant. If someone walked up to me and said Happy Hanukkah I would say “Oh thanks same to you”. I don’t celebrate Hanukkah im not Jewish but that doesn’t mean I have to be offended by another religions holiday. You don’t see the people who are complaining about Christmas complaining that they don’t have to go in to work every year on December 25th. How about if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then you go to work on the 25th. It’s only fair right?
I have nothing against any other religion, but I just can’t understand what this whole fuss is about. Saying Merry Christmas should not offend you. If you don’t celebrate Christmas and someone says hey Merry Christmas, just take it and deal with it. I am offended by the term Happy Holidays. I don’t celebrate multiple holidays. I celebrate Christmas. Bring Christmas back. I think I am going to head down to city hall and put up a nativity scene, say one nation under God, and Tebow the rest of the day. To those celebrating Christmas tomorrow, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Santa is good to you. If you aren’t celebrating Christmas but don’t get offended by our Christian holiday then I hope you have a great day tomorrow. If you are offended by Merry Christmas, wake up tomorrow morning and go to work, and I will be putting in my request for your religions holidays off when I go back to work.
