Get The Clipboard Ready!

As some of you know the NFL Draft was this past weekend. Following the Draft Football fans across America are generally very happy, upset or on the fence with what their team did. Then there is the talk about which of the top 10 picks will actually be star players, who the late round gem might be and the trades.

As a Redskins fan the Pre-Draft talk certainly peaked my interests. What talk you say? The possibility of the Skins trading for Cinco-Ocho....Other wise known as the talented but overly chatty Bengal’s Wide Receiver Chad Johnson. This trade of course did not happen, which in my opinion is a good thing.

So that left the Redskins needing to go the route of the Draft to fulfill their Wide Receiver needs. They ended up picking up two of the top rated receivers in the draft, Devin Thomas out of Michigan State and Malcolm Kelly out of Oklahoma State. They also made some picks to help out their Secondary. But they had one pick that will forever change the history of clipboards in our Nations Capital....Yes my friends....I’m talking about The University of Colt Brennan!

Now I know what some of you are thinking…..Colt Brennan…..Isn’t he the guy that died is hair to look like the island of Hawaii? Yes it is. Now don’t get me wrong but I would love to see The U of C.B. be the future of the Redskins and lead them to the Big Game. But lets face it….The only thing in his future is clipboards and head set.

Now this is where some would argue with the numbers he put up in college. No need to….I’m aware that he passed for 14,193 Yards and 131 Touchdowns in 3 years. But he also played for the University of Hawaii in the WAC Division. There is nothing wrong with either of these, but he put those stats up against teams like Charleston State, Idaho and Double Directional Schools. He also made a lot of people question his potential ability to play with talent on next level based upon his performance against Georgia in the Sugar Bowl this past year. I’m not trying to put down his career, because without a doubt he had a great college career. But Andre Ware, David Klingler, Ty Detmer and Kliff Klingsbury also had great college careers. Who? Exactly!

My plea……Turn this small school big numbers theme around Colt. Die your hair to look like the District of Columbia and take the Redskins to the Super Bowl!

NHL Playoffs

As some of you know the NHL Playoffs second round has kicked off, which is cool. It would have been alot cooler if the Caps were able to beat the Flyers. What makes it suck even more was...that it was the F'n Flyers! As a Caps fan it's in your blood to hate the Flyers. But at the same time the Caps had a great season and show alot of promise for next year.

So since the Caps are out and the Canucks didn't even make the playoffs Im going to be cheering for the Canadians and hope they can pull it off. That's right, Go Canada!

Unusual Pet?

What's going on boys and girls! So today I was tooling away on the old information highway and found an article that totally annoyed me. Granted I understand that it is a typical AOL Article and the subject is by no means ground shaking. But it is the type of article / subject that annoys me.

The article was "Do You Own An Unusual Pet." The results were F*^%'n typical. Snakes numero uno. Now I totally understand that there are a lot of people out there that think that snakes are weird, evil, slimy and dangerous. Im also sure that these poeple have little to no knowledge of snakes.

I then realized after going through this stupid list that either myself or someone in my immediate family has owned or currently has 5 of these 10 pets (Snakes, Turtles, Guinea Pig, Rabbits and Tarantula). And I have come very close to getting 2 of the others (Scorpion & Bearded Dragon).

Clearly my family and I like "unusual pets." I however like to think that we are just original. Mom, Dad, Matt & Todd.....this is one of the many reasons I love you guys so much!

If anyone wants to read this article written by what I am guessing is a dog lover click here. Just so you know this is not a shot to those that like dogs, this topic just really pisses me off.

End of Days

As some of you know anything having to do with natural catastrophes and end of the world theories not only interest me from a scientific (not that I'm a scientist or even close to it) but also disturbs the F*#@ out of me.

With that some of you may have or may not have heard of the end of the world otherwise known as 12/21/12. If you want to read about it click here.

It's a pretty crazy article. I've read it two or three times. It generally gives me a headache, confuses me and turns me into Debbie Downer for a good 30 minutes. But at the same time its pretty amazing that someone is able to gather information and come up with this crazy hypothesis.
