Tuesday Ramblings

Quick Hits on a rainy Tuesday in the city…..

This would be the definition of getting “owned” by your professor. I don’t care if the professor is a jerk all the time, a typically nice guy who lost it, or a guy who likes to dress like an ice dancer every Friday night. He absolutely dominated this student email where the student thought he was entitled to being rude and disrespectful. Awesome.


Is there a more classic 80’s jam than “Don’t You Want Me Baby” by the Human League? Swinging through the The Westside Market to grab dinner last night, and the song is blasting over the speakers in the grocery store. Awesome. People throughout the store are mouthing the words and bobbing their heads as they dig through the produce. I go to the grocery store probably 3-4 times a week (when your refrigerator is too small to stock up on food, you just go each day for that night’s dinner), and Westside never disappoints with its music. In the past I’ve heard songs from “Baby Got Back” to “Nuthin’ But A G Thang” to REO Speedwagon’s “Keep On Loving You” while picking up my dinner. It’s always an interesting surprise to see what song will be playing when the after-work crowd comes through to pick up dinner.


Why did they even bother with all the games leading up to the USA-Canada women’s hockey gold medal game? The US Women’s team has been blowing their opponents away in every game, including a 9-1 thrashing of Sweden in the semi-final. And just to help out my story from yesterday about going out with a women’s hockey player, here’s Kelli Stack. Not the girl I went out with obviously, but proof that not all of the women’s hockey players are bigger and tougher than the men’s team.


The Chargers released LaDainian Tomlinson yesterday rather than pay him and his eroding skills. The guy is among the best running backs to have played the game. He was a complete player with the ability to make someone miss, stiff arm a guy, or catch a swing pass and turn it into points. While it’s a shame that he can’t stay with the Chargers his entire career, it is the typical path for running backs when they turn that corner from stardom to just a breather for the next running back. It happened to Marcus Allen, Emmitt Smith and Edgerin James. Tomlinson was no longer as effective as he had been and the Chargers have Super Bowl caliber talent, so they can’t afford to blow too much cap space on an aging running back that can’t carry the load anymore. And then there’s this dance video………
