Want to play ninja turtles or just ninjas?

Kids sometimes ask the most awesome questions.

I watched the steeplechase race on  I had no idea such a race existed. I was hoping that the "unmovable" barriers would catch the pack of runners but alas, no such luck. 

Does it seem to anyone else that they started making up events while drunk?  "Let's have a hurdle race where one of the hurdles has a puddle of water!"

Favre, you are so hosed

Mr. Favre, Brett.. Perhaps you should thing about retiring again.  Things were already going to be bad for you this season. You made the cover of Maddon '09.  I know what you were thinking.  You were thinking "Madden isn't in this version, I can break the curse." 

And then you found a nice little loop hole.  The Favre on the cover is wearing a Packers jersey.  Certainly that Favre will have a bad season, but if you played for a different team the curse wouldn't haunt you.  Unfortunately, Sams Club and Walmart have both annouced they will print new covers with you in a Jets uniform right in the store. 

This can only end poorly for you.  Perhaps you should walk away while you still can..  Barry did and he seems pretty happy.

I just finished watching the openeing of the Olympics.  Watching the olympics in general is something my family has always kind of done.  Shayna's family never really got into them.  Since we've been together though, I've gotten her hooked.

I love the idea of the olympics..that for at least a little time the nations come together to compete.  The politics, while still present, are mostly left at home. 

The cermonies for this games were particularly interesting.  Most enjoyable parts:
  • Light drums
  • Fireworks
  • the scroll
Does anybody else watch them?  What were your favorite parts?

I just discovered Hulu which is kind of like youtube only it contains material from major networks. It's ad supported so it's free for me..and they have movies which is also kind of neat.

I hadn't seen this clip before but it's funny..not Lazy Sunday funny..but funny
