Oh well, the Pistons can't win em' all can they? Utah embarrassed the Stones last night by 14. After coasting to a comfy 13 point lead at the half, everything fell apart for the Pistons in the 2nd half. Billups, Sheed and RIP all had technical fouls called against them from arguing calls, etc. More or less, they were just frustrated. Ex-Piston Memo and AK-47 were all over the place last night, it seemed like one or the other was in the right spot at the right time on every single rebound. They dominated the boards in the game and the Pistons came out in the second half flat. At least they have some time to regroup before Sactown comes to The Palace.

Who didn't see a return of Pat Riley coming this year? I find it quite funny actually. I'm sure almost everyone knew it was coming and what better time to make that comeback, than right now, with Shaq making his return to the lineup. I really hope they nosedive. And LMAO at Ron Artest, who's going to want that loser? Sure he can play "D", score and rebound, but the guy is a nutcase.

How about Kobe and that sick layup he had last night? He hit some big shots at the end to put away Dallas. What's with Webber and his 27 pts. and 21 rebs.? I thought those days were well past him, good for him! I've always like C-Webb.

Looks like Vick got hurt late in the game last night in their win against the Saints, hopefully he'll be OK. It's going to be a very interesting 3 weeks in the NFL, plenty of teams are still in the thick of things. Go Cowboys!

Thanks for news of the Movies patch.

I'm just working on Physics, and Spanish, and AP Lit.

Argh I hate procrastination. I thought we weren't going to have school though. Oh well, more singing.

WAAAAAAAAAAAZUP!

So last night I went to the library and borrowed the original version of the upcoming movie FUN WITH DICK AND JANE. I also borrowed a couple books

1) THE YEARS OF RICE AND SALT by Kim Stanley Robinson which is an alternative history novel that sees the point of divergence being the Plague wiping out 99% of Europe. I've heard of this book for a long time so it'll be good to finally read it.

2) IN THE OCEAN OF NIGHT by Gregory Benford Apparently this is the first of a series. The concept of the novel seems interesting so i'll read it. My library doesn't have all the volumes in the series but since it's only an inter-connected series I shouldn't have a HUGE problem figuring things out if I decide to get the other books.

Man, it's been a long time since I've sat down and read a book. Actually, it's been a VERY long time. Well, I have read books to my daughter, so that counts as something, I suppose.

That first book sounds interesting.

How's the chest? When is the appt?

It's feeling a bit better. I still get a little pain but it's not in the heart area so i'm thankful for that. I should go to the doctor sometime this week. It kinda sucks when I can't drive as I would've gone myself.
 
# 10 Steve_OS @ 12/13/05 08:59 AM
Man, seriously... Somehow, someway, you should get to the doc today bro.

Ugh, what a miserable night. I had an 8 am exam today, and hit the hay early last night to try to get some sleep. I ended up getting about none. Tossed and turned all night. Just as I was about to get some serious sleep my alarm went off and I had to trudge off through the snow to the other end of campus to try to pass some exam. Needless to say I'm about ready for a nap.

On a positive note I held off Acid in our fantasy playoff game. Beat him by a solid 2 points. I need to say thanks to Micheal Vick for not looking at Alge Crumpler at all in the red zone.

LOL, doesn't it always seem to be that way? Everytime I go to sleep, it seems as though I've slept for about 2 seconds. I shut my eyes and I'm already slamming my snooze button. I can't stand waking up in the mornings.

I can't believe Crump didn't get him the points, LOL.

Sorry I didn't get to post yesterday on Guitar Hero I have been real busy at work.

I have had about 6 people come over and play that game instead of my 360. One couple even went out and bought a Ps2 just for that game, the wife played more than the husband. You might not think it is your type of game, but it is one of the funnest games I have played in a long time. It is definatley my GOTY.

I work in IT and we have our annual Christmas lunch on Thursday and I have to do a skit. I wrote something about the plight of the IS worker and how we are misunderstood. I hope it goes well but I will probably make an idiot of myself.

Haha, that's pretty wild, I'm was in the exact same situation. I'm in a ten-man league on ESPN.com and only four teams make the playoffs, so each round spans two weeks. I was down 69-43 going into last night cause me team has been destroyed by injuries, but tied it up at 76 after a great game from Vick and a suprise outting from Antawon Smith (my top three drafted RB's were Preist, Curtis Martin and Stephen Davis ).

And the kid I'm playing had Crumpler, so it was nice that he didn't get himself a 10 point cushion going into our second week.


I had two adult league games last night, the first one was at 8pm in the tough league and we were playing the supposed best team in it. They had two kids my around age who were both all-state in HS. One played at Rhode Island and the other played at some small DI school in the midwest, I can't remember. Maybe Youngstown State?

So these kids were cocky as hell all game and talking an insane amount of trash, but we played them tough as hell and beat their press all night long. We were up by 2 with :05 left on the clock and the kid who went to URI took the ball the length of the court and got fouled with no time left on the clock. First FT, swish. Then everyone on our team gave him a little "good luck wish" before his second FT, which he rimmed out and we won 72-71!! Haha, friggen crazy game. I'm sure we'll meet them in the finals and they'll be talking more trash then ever. Even people in the stands were talking trash for them, I think everyone was pissy cause we're the only white team in the league and we're 3-0 and knocked off the #1 team.

The second game was back in my hometown against a new team. I got there w. like 6 minutes left in the first half and we were up a disgusting 14-6. Yeah....real Loyola-Marymount offense we've got. So anyway I came in and 24 points in the last 5 minutes of the first half and first 10 of the second half before taking the rest of the night off, we won 73-22. Haha, it was a badass feeling. I love the looks on the faces of the wives in the crowd of the guys on the other team. Oh, and Steve I had 5 dunks for ya in this one.

Playing in the second league against 35 year old white guys was like playing against 4th grades after playing against a couple of former DI players.

Enough tootin' my own horn for now. How's everyone else doin???????

Yeah, I read up on that guitar yesterday. While it does sound interesting, I don't know if I'm going to get one. It would probably be a good party game tho. I'll keep it on the radar, but you gotta sell it to me, lol.

A skit? LOL, that's pretty cool. Have fun w/ it. IT guys never get any credit, I know how ya feel, lol.

Well, I missed my zero period English class because I was up super late watching the Tookie Williams coverage.

I had a sub anyways, so it's all good.

Usually the class periods go 1-6, but I chose to get a 0 period, so I start an hour earlier but I get out at lunch everyday.

Yeah, the founder of the Crips. I was watching the interviews and Q&A's of the witnesses, it took TWELVE minutes to find the vein in his left arm (this guy was massive).
 
# 20 SPTO @ 12/13/05 11:02 AM
Just an update on my situation: i'm going to the Doc on Friday. I know it's a while from now but it's the best I can do.
