Goodbye 2008!!!

Happy New Year to everyone except Hembitch

and his gorilla!!


2008 was a great year for me and 2009 is going to be better year.

Minnesota sucks big time!

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP)—As night fell in the desert, the haunting Rock Chalk Chant filled Sun Devil Stadium.

It was the perfect way for Kansas to celebrate a decisive 42-21 victory over Minnesota in the Insight Bowl on Wednesday.

“Our program is a work in progress, and every day it seems to get better and better,” KU coach Mark Mangino said as he accepted the game trophy.

Indeed, the Jayhawks (8-5) have won three straight bowl games, a first for a school renowned for its hoops prowess. The Insight Bowl also marked Kansas’ first back-to-back bowl appearances.

Kansas sliced up the Golden Gophers (7-6) with a precision passing attack directed by quarterback Todd Reesing, who threw for four scores.

Reesing’s favorite target was Dezmon Briscoe, who caught a game-record 14 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns on his way to game MVP honors.

Kerry Meier also had 10 catches for 113 yards, and he caught one touchdown pass and threw another one.

Reesing said KU’s plan was simple.

“See, here’s what happens: they call a play, and Briscoe gets open, and if I can throw it to him, then it works out,” Reesing said. “And it seemed to work out a whole lot of times, and the same thing with Kerry. So we just kept doing it. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

Reesing completed 27 of 35 passes, hitting on a school-record 14 straight passes in the first half. He threw for 313 yards and was intercepted once.

Reesing, a junior from Austin, Texas, has one year left to add to his legacy as the most prolific passer in KU history. He improved to 20-6 as a starter.

“Todd’s a great quarterback,” Briscoe said. “He eludes pressure and just finds the open guy. It’s a pleasure to have him.”

Eric Decker caught eight passes for 149 yards and a touchdown for the Golden Gophers (7-6), who finished the season on a five-game losing streak and have lost their last three bowl games.

“Unfortunately, we got beat by a better football team today. that was the name of the story,” Minnesota coach Tim Brewster said. “There’s no consolation for us. We came here to win the football game.”

But the Gophers can take consolation in earning a bowl invitation one year after a 1-11 season. They started this season 7-1 and cracked The Associated Press Top 25 before a last-second Homecoming loss to Northwestern sent them into a tailspin.

“This year was kind of a good year for us,” Decker said. “We started out strong. We’ve got to learn how to finish.”

Minnesota came to Tempe hoping to erase memories of its last Insight trip, two years ago. The Gophers led Texas Tech 38-7 midway through the third quarter, only to watch the Red Raiders rally for a 44-41 overtime victory—the biggest comeback in major-college bowl history.

This time, Minnesota found itself down by a touchdown after 11 seconds on a sparkling 73-degree afternoon. On the game’s first snap, Reesing rolled away from pressure and found Briscoe down the left sideline for a 60-yard scoring play.

“I don’t know if that’s the way we scripted it, but that’s the way it worked out,” Reesing said.

The Golden Gophers responded quickly to the early deficit. On their first offensive snap, receiver David Pittman hit Decker for a 75-yard pass to the KU 12, and three plays later Jon Hoese bulled over from a yard out to tie it at 7.

It was the first collegiate carry for Hoese, a sophomore. Nine minutes later, he scored again, on a 2-yard run, to give Minnesota a 14-7 lead.

Mangino said the Gophers surprised KU with some formations they hadn’t used during the season. But KU adjusted quickly and throttled Minnesota for most of the last three quarters, even stuffing them on fourth-and-goal at the 1 in the third quarter.

“Our defensive coaches got them settled down after the first quarter and made the adjustments that were needed at the time,” Mangino said.

KU tied it at 14 on a 4-yard pass from Reesing to Meier late in the first quarter. Reesing added two more touchdown passes—a 6-yarder to Briscoe and a 4-yarder to Johnathan Wilson—to give Kansas a commanding 28-14 halftime lead.

Minnesota cut it to 35-21 on a 6-yard pass from Adam Weber to Decker early in the fourth quarter, but the Gophers’ offense stalled after that. Weber was 19-of-34 for 176 yards and a touchdown.

Minnesota’s loss dropped the Big Ten to 0-3 in bowls, while the Big 12 improved to 2-1, with both victories coming against Big Ten schools.

No more Comedy Central!! NOOOOOOO!!!!!!

This is from the AP and Yahoo news.



WASHINGTON (AFP) – Millions of subscribers to the Time Warner Cable television network risked losing some of their favorite shows on Thursday amid a bitter dispute with entertainment giant Viacom Inc. over rights fees.

Viacom has threatened to pull Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1 and 15 other channels from Time Warner and its 13.3 million subscribers at 12:01 am (0501 GMT) on Thursday if a new fees deal is not reached by then.

Viacom published a full-page advertisement in The New York Times and other newspapers on Wednesday showing "Dora the Explorer," the star of its popular Nickelodeon cartoon, shedding a tear.

"Why is Dora crying?" the ad asked before answering its own question. "Time Warner Cable is taking Dora off the air tonight!"

Glenn Britt, president and chief executive of Time Warner Cable, the second largest US cable network, shot back with a statement of his own on Wednesday.

"Christmas is over, but Viacom is still playing Scrooge, threatening to pull its MTV Networks off of Time Warner Cable at midnight tonight unless we ask our customers to pay exorbitant price increases," he said.

Britt accused Viacom of "trying to extort another 39 million dollars annually" from Time Warner customers.

"Demanding that our customers pay so much more for these few networks would be unreasonable in any economy, but it is particularly outrageous given the current economic conditions," he said.

"We sympathize with the fact that Viacom's advertising business is suffering and that their networks' ratings have largely been declining," Britt said. "However, we can't abide their attempt to make up their lost revenue on the backs of Time Warner Cable customers."

"We implore them to join with us to reach a fair resolution or grant an extension, and we hope they won't carry through with their threat to take their networks away from our customers tonight," the Time Warner CEO said.

Viacom laid the blame on Time Warner.

"The move by Time Warner Cable to force such channels as Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and MTV off the air is another example of a cable company overreaching for profit at the expense of its viewers," it said in a statement.

"The renewal we are seeking is reasonable and modest relative to the profits Time Warner Cable enjoys from our networks," Viacom said. "We have asked for an increase of less than 25 cents per month, per subscriber, which adds up to less than a penny per day for all 19 of MTV Networks' channels.

"We make this request because Time Warner Cable has so greatly undervalued our channels for so long," Viacom said. "Americans spend more than 20 percent of their TV viewing time watching our networks, yet our fees amount to less than 2.5 percent of what Time Warner generates from their average customer."

WWE VERSUS The Wrestler




According to Lost Colony Entertainment , Vince McMahon got his special viewing of The Wrestler, and he wasn't pleased. McMahon was said to be unhappy with the film, and since McMahon has the ability to veto "wrestling related advertising" on MyNetworkTV, during Smackdown, it has made things difficult for Fox (who owns MyNetworkTV) to advertise the film to the key demographic. Writer/Director Richard O'Sullivan, who was working on wrestling based sitcom entitled "Citizen Pain", was not surprised at McMahon, stating: "Vince McMahon is a wrestling promoter. His wrestling company, which his father left to him, is the only thing that's ever been successful for him. His boxing events failed. His restaurant failed. Evel Knievel jumping the Snake River Canyon failed. He bought the Debbie Reynolds Hotel…that failed. He started a football league and a bodybuilding league and he's made a bunch of movies, which get horrible reviews and don't turn a profit. The only one of his guys who actually did turn into an a-list star was Dwayne Johnson and that was only after he broke away from Vince, got out of 'the wrestling vacuum,' and took control of his own career. So I can see how Vince would be really pissed that a movie about 'his' industry—which thematically is out of step with his vision of the business—is getting great reviews and winning awards."



Aronofsky has also been discussing a topic McMahon doesn't want any part of, unionizing wrestling. Recently Aronofsky stated the following…"There's really no reason why these guys are not in SAG, they're in front of a camera performing and doing stunts, and they should have that protection. They should have health insurance and they should be protected. When I won the Golden Lion, I dedicated the film to all the wrestlers; I kind of shared their stories. They're a unique lot. They're not organized, they have no pension, no health care, so many of them are tragically dying at a young age. I was talking to Mickey, 'Why aren't wrestlers in SAG?' If you really think about it, the Screen Actors Guild should organize them…they're performing in front of a camera, and stuntmen are SAG.

Hitman

I just got back home from the bar and I got this video posted on my facebook. It makes me so sad but it makes remember my childhood. Read his book. The Hitman.



I hope someday they make a movie, a good movie with a good director about his book. The Hitman. The best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.

Mir vs Lesnar

It is official the unification of the Heavy Weight title will take place in a couple of months. Brock Lesnar versus Frank Mir. Mir won the first fight but I think Brock will win the second fight. Also it should be Rampage Jackson versus Rashad Evans for the light heavyweight title. UFC is so much better than the WWE right now is kind of sad.

I am drunk

Yes I am drunk right now. I know it is really early for me to be drunk but I have the night off and I wanted to start early. I am really nervous about graduation because I have known school for most of my life and when it's over I am not quite sure what to do. I love my job right now but when school is done with I will have a degree. I don't know what to do right now and is pissing me off. I could get a corporate job but the money I would make in corporation is not going to be much more than I make right now because being a bartender in Las Vegas is a gold mine. You are always making money especially on fight night. Thank you Oscar and Manny! I made four times more than I usually make because of you two.



I can pay three months worth of my mortage. But the reason I am typing this blog because I am not sure if I want to be a grown up. Some of my friends are married and have kids now which I am happy for them but sometimes I feel that they should have waited until they were older. Your 20's are suppose to be a fun decade where you fuck around and have a good time. But then this morning I watching G4TV and they were showing one of the greatest television programs of all time.



I am Desmond. I need to join the military and become a good man or I need sail around the world and shipwreck into a mysterious island where I have to push a button every 108 minute in order to save every person in the world. I came close to going to Iraq but I didn't have the balls. I am rethinking my decision but maybe this time I will be an officer and help save the world by pushing some kind of button on a computer. To my love I am sorry for being me. I know we belong together but right now I need to save the world but I will be back to marry you. I love you and I am sorry if my decision pains you.

Hembitch hates Latinos

I got this email from Dustin and I could not believe what I read. Hembitch has been spewing his hate on his blog which I do not read and will never read because if I wanted to read something moronic I would read Jay Marriotti. But his hate speech and it is hate speech is despicable. It doesn't matter if you are the nicest person in the world get out of your country. If people don't look like you they must leave your country. If people speak Spanish they must leave your country. This is not your country fat boy. My Spanish speaking brothers and sisters have the right to live in this country, you racist motherfucker. I have forwarded the email and I will make sure everybody knows what a racist piece of shit you are. Viva mi amigos Latino!



Si se puede! Like Antonio Banderas says"Go Fuck yourself Hembitch."





God Bless this Spanish Nation of America.
