Hey Orlando

Okay, I have something in the works that, if I get it done in time, should be at least mildly amusing. So please check back either later today or tomorrow morning. Here’s a hint: this will combine my love for the Patriots and junky whores.

That might have been too much of a hint. 🙂

UPDATE: This will be posted first thing tomorrow morning. I want to take the day and night to make it right. I hope you guys come back to read it tomorrow, I think it’ll be okay.

Good news…I guess?

Well, I just got a call from my mom and my grandfather is out of surgery and sleeping off his medication at the moment down in Sarasota Florida. He went in this morning for a double bypass surgery – or whatever it is called – and ended up having a triple bypass, not to mention his surgery that was scheduled for this morning was pushed back to this afternoon. So good news, right? I guess. When the doctor came out, he said that the surgery went “okay.” Not great, not bad. OK.

What the hell does that mean? Anyway, the good news is that he is out of surgery. I really hope that his recovery is quick and without complications or, God forbid, infections. But my grandpa is young and stubborn so I’m sure he’ll be better than ok. Geesh.

BWAH!!!

SPOILER ALERT: If you didn’t watch last night’s Colbert Report and care about not knowing what happened in the second segment, don’t continue reading.

Okay, how completely unexpected was that? Colbert was talking about his ongoing fued with Conan O’Brien over which host “made” Huckabee when a lady from the audience screams loudly and the camera cuts over to…Jon Stewart! He hasn’t been seen on the show since the infamous Geraldo saga back in the summer of 2006. Even though I was sick, I still got all giddy. Honestly, I can’t really even remember what was said but Jon and Stephen were very giggly and Jon made some claim that he “made” Conan because O’Brien appeared on Stewart’s MTV show back in the 90s.  I certainly hope all three hosts have discussed this fued off camera because I was always under the impression that there was a real-life fued (might be too strong a word) between O’Brien and Stewart. I guess not. You should check it out if you didn’t see it.

I hate it when TV shows make me cry because I always feel so silly getting so emotional over a television program. That being said, this episode of Biggest Loser made me cry real bad at the end. That was so sad. I was rooting for the underdogs and they didn’t make it and someone had to go home. It was sad.

I like this new twist in the game, black team vs. blue team because I think the focus will become more about weight loss and less about playing the game – in that teams would throw off the weigh in on purpose like what happened last week.

It is so nice to have a TV show to watch every week. Lost starting on Thursday will help with that too as will Jericho which starts in a few weeks. C’mon guys, this strike needs to end!

ETA: While watching this two hour program tonight, I went from feeling really good and not sick to almost throwing up towards the end. Not because of the show, but still. When is this going to go away? 😦

Yet again

Still sick. Had to completely stay home from work today and spent most of the day feeling crappy in bed. I have no idea what this sickness is. It isn’t a head cold as I’m not in any way congested. I think it is some kind of stomach virus or something like that but it is also causing me to have a fever which is making me miserable. It’d be nice to think I could get better so that I can go to work on Wednesday as there is so much going on there but who knows.

Blah

I’m sick. I don’t really have much more than that to say.

I think Tad is misbehaving in the living room while I’m in bed. Shame on you Tad. If only I had a digital camera I could do more Tad stories.

And I’m going to pretend I didn’t say that.

The Super Bowl is one week from tomorrow. Definitely expect to see lots of articles, interviews, photos, and other random things related to the Super Bowl on here in the coming week.

Right now, I’d like to focus on what has to be the biggest mystery to have hit New England since <enter big New England mystery here, I’m not big on NE history>: Where the hell is Tom Brady? Let’s go through this past week. Sunday’s game, he limps off the field in the second half. Monday, Brady is seen (by everybody thanks to TMZ) wearing a boot on his right foot. He doesn’t deny an injury on Boston’s WEEI Sports Radio that morning but says he will be ready for the Super Bowl. Family members say the high ankle sprain is not serious. Tuesday, New York erupted with insulting headlines against Brady, calling him a pansey and all that. He then disappears from all public. Thursday, he does not participate in practice, Friday he does not participate in practice that the media could see.

Interesting side bits to this. Bill Belichick teases reporters at the press conference on Thursday, playing coy about Brady’s participation in practice. He actually says he does not know if he’ll be there. Yeah right. Almost all of the Patriots questioned about Brady have had a comical or smart-ass response to give. Apparently there is now a quarterback controversy going on between the two likely candidates: Wes Welker and Donte Stallworth. See this Globe article: Brady Takes a Pass for their comments. Perhaps the most interesting of all is this picture from the same article of Brady’s locker on Friday.

Brady’s pants and shoes are right there, implying that he could be somewhere in the stadium – without his pants on. 🙂

So here’s my theory on all this and it is a pretty obvious one. Brady has a legitimate high ankle sprain that might have been a little sore on Sunday. Bill Belichick pulls Brady aside and says “Hey, as long as you’re going to New York, why don’t you wear this boot on your foot so that New York will think something is wrong?” His motivation for this? He has an excuse to keep Brady out of the media-available practices. This would mean they could work on top-secret plays and what not. Brady is obviously practicing with the Pats when the media is not around. Whether he was injured or not, he would still be at the stadium/practice field watching on and studying film and so forth. Plus, Belichick and the other players would not be cracking jokes, especially not with reporters, if it was more serious than a little ouchy that Brady’s smoking hot girlfriend probably made feel better real fast. This also causes distraction for New York.

Either that, or Brady is trapped beneath a huge pile of Wriststrong bracelets that Colbert Nation has flooded him with. Extremely possible as we’re those people are crazy.
