Blogger Blend Review #1

So Boca Java, this neat little online coffee shop (think Gevalia, but way cooler) offered to send me some free coffee if I'd review at least one of them in my blog. I'm hoping, just out of sheer gratitude, to review all 6 blends they sent me, I mean, c'mon, they even sent me a hat and this really cool lookin' mug.

So the only one I've tried so far is call Blogger's Boot Up Blend. I have to say, this coffee is MILD. This is what you give to your 12 year old when he has his first cup. That, or your pregnant wife when all other coffee is starting to make her gag.

I have to admit, it was nice to not drown my taste buds, but at the same time, I'm a cream and sugar kinda guy, so I didn't get a whole lot out of this particular cup.

My advice, save this for when junior wakes early on Sunday morning with you and wants to be all grown-up. That, or wait til you have a cold and can't taste anything anyhow.

So it's over for the season, the Wild have packed up and headed home from Dallas on Sat. with an impressive OT loss in another season finisher with Dallas, this year in Dallas.

It was a very exciting game and it didn't stay close at all until the 3rd period. But these guys were all playing their hearts our. Dallas wanted to build steam heading into the playoffs, the Wild wanted to stop them up a bit and remind them there's still next season (let's hope that MN has Mitchell back by then).

I think that both teams did what they set out too, Minnesota scoring two goals in eleven seconds to tie the game and take it into OT. And for all of us fans, MN and TX alike, we were cheated of a shootout by a lousy 37 seconds (not even), though I doubt Dallas minds that nearly as much as we do here in the Twin Cities.

Anyway, the Stars get to keep shining, and they'll remember next season is still out there when they start reviewing tape. I doubt 2 goals in 11 seconds are going to sit well with any of the Dallas coaches.
So as the song goes "I'll see you in September."

Are you freakin' kiddin' me?!

CKX buys Muhammed Ali's commercial name and likeness rights for $50,000,000, and not only does the price of the company drop on Wall Street, but they don't even get 100% of the rights.

Ali is still holding a 20% interest in himself. At least he should be able to maintain dignified commercialization that way, but how the hell does buying the Greatest of All Time rights, and naming a subsidiary company after him, encourage people to sell your stock?

I have but one question...

What's up with that?!

Government Unofficials

Has anyone else just had edamnnough? I mean, seriously, what's up in D.C? Don't those lackeys make their living with my money?
As my dad used to say, "I don't pay 'em to think."

So why do we let them waste our tax dollars punching cops who don't recognize them? Why do we allow them to use our mass media as a public outcry against crimes that haven't been committed against them? Why? Why? Why?

If you've noticed the pictures here then you've probably wondered who these people are. Well, they're Cynthia McKinney D Rep.-Ga. She's pissed because the cops at the House in D.C. didn't recognize her and wouldn't let her through without her special lapel pin. She also thinks that the best use of your money is to make these cops memorize the names and faces of all 600 representatives in D.C. so well that they can recognize them no matter what. Sound like a victim of inappropriate touching to you?

But if you don't wanna take my word for it, go ahead, read it from The Conservative Voice and CBS News instead:

As a final note, I'd just like to say that I've heard her comments on the Wolf Blitzer show and in about 10 minutes she stated both that the issue was racial profiling and that she'd never said anything about racial profiling. If you don't believe me, call Wolf and him, 202-408-4821 or 1-888-CNN-0561.

Now on to our next genius of the week; Here is Brian J. Doyle, a deputy press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, has been arrested on allegations of committing child sex crimes. Wow, I really want him protecting our country from terrorists now!

Read all about it:

And you too Frank Figueroa, kudos to you. And I though Bush's spending was out of control before. Now he's got 'em wasting our law enforcement money too. Way to go GOP!!!
