thursday's funnies

the news today makes me laugh. first from the detroit free press, news that the swedish olympic hockey committee is pissed, because Red Wing JOHAN FRANZEN plans on playing 9 february. FRANZEN is a power forward, and one of the NHL's premier players. FRANZEN has been out 4 months after sustaining a torn ACL that required surgery. apparently team sweden is being criticized because they have left FRANZEN off the roster, and according to FRANZEN have not even contacted him. in addition, FRANZEN feels he would not be at 100% for the olympics and therefore does not want to play in them. team sweden is directing it's ire at the Red Wing organization, saying that the team is bringing FRANZEN back too soon due to fluctuating between 7th and 9th in the western conference. to this i say, maybe. but when has team sweden's doctors evaluated FRANZEN, and just how much of FRANZEN's $43 million dollar contract are they on the hook for? until you start paying the bills, shut it and be glad the guy was honest enough to not take up a roster spot and give someone else a chance.

come on, anders, you can't find another swede to fill the roster?

next, i see SCOTT BROWN was sworn in today to the senate. the guy he is replacing, Paul Kirk, said the the division in the senate needs to end, "there needs to be a climate change in the senate." what the fuck, over? i thought climate change was bad. rising oceans, dead polie bears, drought, famine, all the other bullshit. hey paul, look outside and get the shovel ready, cause DC is fixin' to get up to 2 feet of snow. also, please explain again why it is important for us all to get along when during W's administration all your party did was obstruct?

and finally, i could not make this shit up. NBC's cafeteria is honoring black history month with a special menu that includes; fried chicken, collard greens, smoked turkey, white rice, black eyed peas, jalapeno cornbread and who knows what to drink. got to love the diversity over a 1 rockefeller center. if you don't believe me, go check out the article in the new york magazine:

  1. What's most interesting about the NBC 'Black History Month' menu story is that it was not at all intended to be what it turned into.

    The woman who created the menu is Black, and she was sincere in her efforts. What happened after that, though, is the good part.. one of the members of Jimmy Fallon's house band (The Roots), a Black man, posted the pic on Twitter with the comment "hmm, HR?"

    Of course he didn't know the whole story, and therefore he pretty much made an ass of himself in his effort to be overly PC, as so many liberally-minded people do.

    I'll bet had he been a Conservative, he'd have just laughed.


your thoughts on what you see and read are welcome here. be advised, try to hurt my feelings and i will hurt yours.
