2 down, 4 to go!

Game 2 is in the books and it's another defeat for the Sens.

Game 1 I was giving them because of the week and a half of time off between series but game 2, they were just never really in it. With the possible exception of the last 3 minutes, this game had the sad look of a professional hockey team playing the Tim Bits, and sadly, Ottawa was not the former. If it wasn't for Ray Emery the game could have easily been 5, 6 or 7 to nothing.

Here's hoping they smarten up and get back some spirit when they return to town this weekend for game 3. The fans will stick with them but if they play a period on Saturday like period 1 or 2 tonight then there's no telling what could happen.

Go SENS Go!!!

Talk about two birds with one stone.

Not only are these guys raising funds to send thousands of pounds of nuts to CBS in an attempt to revive Jericho (yet another series killed off before given a real chance) but now they've confirmed that CBS is not just discarding the nuts but is instead sending them off to troops overseas and possible donating them to local food programs.

So if you're a fan of the show or just want to donate to a good cause head on over to NutsOnline and drop them a small donation.

P.S. Is anyone besides me surprised that was even available as a domain name?

Elizabeth strikes back

... and in a big way.

For reference sake, here's the show they were talking about and much like the latest episode Rosie seems to have an issue answering anyone's question, even her own. Her ability to open her mouth and shout down everyone without a single coherent thought coming out is truly astounding.

And for the record when someone poses the quest "Who are the real terrorists?" with the preface that 650,000 civilians are dead in Iraq after the US invaded (a number throughly debunked on many sites across the blogosphere including here and Iraq Body Count) it hardly takes a great leap of logic or a conservative bias to link the two. They were part of the same sentence for crying out loud.

Well if one good thing could be said about Rosie's tenure on The View, besides the fact that it is coming to a end, it's that somehow in all her shouting, mud slinging, anti conservative ranting she's managed to push Elizabeth to speak out in a much stronger voice.

Lines in the sand

I can't find video of Hannity and Colmes from last night but I was mildly shocked to see that finally Alan Colmes had found a topic that he considers taboo for discussion on collage campuses.
So far I've have seen him support the importing of terrorists/terrorists sympathizers to talk to large college crowds, antisemitc professors praising Hezbollah, and a myriad of other extremists who regularly appear all over university campuses across America to help broaden young students minds but finally he has found a group of people too extreme to permit on campus; dissenters of the Goreacle and his "we are the problem" Global Warming crusade.

In a story that should frighten any open minded person, a professor in Roger Williams University made the movie, "An Inconvenient Truth" a required part of the curriculum and to add insult to injury, did not allow for any opposing opinions to be presented. This is attempted indoctrination at it's most obvious and as Alan made clear last night, it's working. His attempt to defend the professor's actions basically came down to, since everyone agrees with Gore's take on global warming there is no reason to debate it, a stance that was disproven by his own guests who provided names of several well respected researchers and scientists who disagree with Gore's theories.

The idea that "An Inconvenient Truth" stands as an undisputed work is something that many on the dedicated left have taken up as a cause and the MSM always wanting to help out their ideological comrades have done their best to help. But even when they're trying to help they do slip up a little. Take this AP story for example. Although it touts that a consensus of scientists agree the movie is accurate as it's main headline (a grand total of 19 who all appear to be in the global warming field which stands to lose several billion dollars if it is determined no crisis exists) even within the article itself there is disagreement with the movie. My favorite quote, which has been repeated in one form or another by several scientists when praising Al Gore's :
The tiny errors scientists found weren't a big deal, "far, far fewer and less significant than the shortcoming in speeches by the typical politician explaining an issue,"
So in other words, "we'll just ignore the inaccuracies for the greater good".

A perfect example of a insignificant error was Gore's linking of global warming to hurricanes such as Katrina. Some of the most respected hurricane experts in the world have publicly stated that Global Warming has little or no impact on the number or veracity of hurricanes but yet that is one of the main images used to push Gore's agenda.

I'm a bit surprised that a theory with such an overwhelming consensus as to be determined fact according to so many on the left, including Mr. Colmes (and a growing number of people on the right but with less religious furor), has such a long list of highly qualified doubters. But of course, for those poor student at RWU, those opposing viewpoints are of so much "less significant" weight than a failed Presidential hopefuls as not to even warrant discussion, and Alan's just fine with that.

Not your father's Rambo

One of the little know side affects of excessive HGH abuse, an uncontrollable urge to kill Burmese soldiers in the most gory way possible.

Who knew.


It's been a good weekend

First the Senators win game 5 of the Eastern Conference championships to clinch the title and earn a spot in the Stanley Cup finals and then I get a call from Bill with the news of the birth of his bouncing baby girl, Ariane Émilie.

She's pretty cute, with her mothers eyes and her fathers hair (do they make baseball hats in size 0?).

Just kidding Bill, congrats!

The FOX RNC Debate

What a difference a host station makes.

Unlike their Democratic counterparts, the RNC Presidential hopefuls can now make the claim they've taken part in a real debate.

The man knows no bounds

Is there nothing Edwards won't do to cuddle up to the far far left?

Apparently not!

1 more to go

Another shut out for Emery.

A 3-0 stranglehold on the series.

I think it's time to put a down payment on some tickets to the finals.

GO Sens GO!!!

Or as the French call it, Sunday

Possibly the funniest/saddest paragraph ever written with a straight face in a AP news story:
"On election night, scattered violence was reported across France. Police reported that 270 people were taken in for questioning and that 367 parked vehicles had been torched. On a typical night in France, about 100 cars are burned."
And of course, like most AP/Reuters stories they got their facts wrong (but sadly not the 100 cars/night stat). So 730 cars set ablaze in one night followed by another 500 or so the next night and no one seems to care.

I know of all the jokes about French military prowess but this is just ridiculous.

Right Hand Girl ...

... takes on Spicoli.

Poor guy, he didn't have a chance.

Right on Target

Sens take the series 4-1 with a 3-2 win over New Jersey last night.

I really wish I had put money on this series but I could only find one person who was betting on the Devils and that was mostly because his beloved Canadiens were already out, so not a lot of cash to be made there.

So now on to round 3 for only the second time in the modern Senators history. Looking at the possible opponents I'm still predicting a Sens win, just not sure if it will be 5 games or 6.

3 - 1 Senators lead the series.

My series prediction is still right on track. If I'm right Friday's game should be the final nail in the New Jersey coffin and then we're off to the next round.

Am I alone in this..

.. or has anyone else noticed that 24 is looking less and less like a spy show and more and more like an episode of "One Tree Hill", just with less gun play.

In the last episode alone you had the jock find out his girlfriend is sleeping around, the street smart hero told to stay away from his girlfriend by the protective dad and a couple of auxiliary characters get into a nonsensical fight and breakup.

But still I watch it every week. Go figure.

Public Enemy #1

I'm not the biggest union fan at the best of times but if CUPE goes forward with their plans for strike action next week, you may just see the end of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.

This is Canada and if yet another union is responsible for preventing the Stanley Cup playoffs from going through on schedule, their may be blood spilled in the streets.

I actually see the unions side on the issue of pay and benefits but that won't stop me joining the angry mob marching on Scotiabank Place with the tar and feathers to break the lines if they try and stop game 6 (which according to my prediction, which is still looking good, will not be needed).
