Well, it's sad, but he needs all the help he can get, and I think he would make a much better president than Hillary Clinton or Ron Paul, to name 2. :) His foreign policy is more open as well, and I think he might actually look to the problems the nation has right now, specifically, the urban community, rather than lining his own pockets or making himself look good.

Here's hoping. I'm somewhat pessimistic, but I would be thrilled if he won the election.

So Would I. Hes so much more down to earth than anyone ive ever seen before. If he survives the primaries, which is now looking somewhat likely, he should be in.

I do think he is a bit of an idealist, but hes down to earth, he knows what real people need, and hes smart.

After a guy like bush hes just what the doctor ordered, hes Black, hes likable, and hes not afraid to let people know what he really thinks.

...Early update this week and it's all because I am awake now due to being stuffed up with a cold an sore throat. That and along with not being able to sleep that good with my knee after surgery does not allow me to sleep well these days. :shrug:

...If anyone gets a chance to watch it, that Caribbean series is something to see.

...Since there's no better way to spend the summer anyhow, what do you say we play the games first before we hand the New York Mets the World Series title for 2008?

...It was nice to see former Syracuse star Art Monk be elected to Football's Hall of Fame. That guy was one of the best receivers in the NFL in the 80's. Now, when will it be time for Cliff Branch?

...The New York Knicks are the Oakland Raiders of the NBA in that every time you think they can't get any worse they end up proving you wrong.

...Hey NYM buddy! They're selling Santana jerseys on the Mets website! Time to break open the piggy bank and get one, but it's going to cost you. The cheapest is $90. 8O

...The NHL Network really isn't that bad to watch.

...We had high winds around here the other day. You know, the kind that shake your house? Well, I was home and I was looking out the window watching stuff fly around and the next thing I see is some kid's summer plastic pool flung down the street by the wind. It must of had a successful escape since I did not see anyone come and chase it down. :)

...It seems that sometime this week I will be watching a movie called "Wargames" for the very first time. :D

...We all know what next week brings, right? Spring training starts!

...Go Giants.

-Y4L I'm way ahead of you. I'm paying for the full authentic jersey. Washing cars in the summer finally pays off! I'm going with the classic pinstripe.

-I'm a Jets fan but I'm going for the Giants in this one. I really cannot stand the Patriots.

- Hockey team had a bad season. We're 1-11-2. It was all fun for the seniors last year. They won a championship, got us moved up a division and then left us for dead by graduating. O well, we'll get moved down next year and compete again.

- HS baseball starts officially in less than a month!!! I'm looking for a city championship and it is very possible with the squad we have this year. If we're going to do anything, this is the year.

- I did it. I finally reached my goal. I ran a mile under 7 minutes. 6:58 seconds! Just think, a year ago, or if you want to be extreme, six months ago I was running a 12 minute mile.

- I hope the new feature in MLB 2k8 is either create-a-stadium, create-a-team, or a "Road to the Show" type mode.

...I'm playing NBA Live 07, and it's not quite as bad as the critics made it out to be, in the sense that it's nothing special and not very original, but it's solid, like NBA 06, 07, and 08. It just annoys the hell out of me at how many stupid little bugs there are in there, from gameplay problems to the game simply having a history of crashing with no known reason. That game got released with a huge bug in it that was never fixed, not to mention numerous others. I hate the pure laziness of the games more than anything. The only reason I stick with it is because the 2k series doesn't run on PC.

...I am watching perhaps five minutes of the superbowl, if that much at all. As you probably know, I hate football. It stole baseball from America. Now it seems that more and more people dismiss baseball as "slow and boring" which really pisses me off.

You make sense in what you are saying and believe me, I'm not arguing with you on this. I'm a baseball person first and always will be. But baseball is not blameless in having football overtake them. Football's never had their Super Bowl championship game canceled due to a strike and baseball has back in 1994. Plus with the black eye that is steroids, it turns off the casual fan.

...I really really hope the Giants pull off the upset tonight and beat New England.

...I'm so glad it's almost Spring Training..I miss baseball.

...I was supposed to go and get my Drivers License Friday, but it had to snow 8 inches. Grr.

...I think something may be wrong with my MVP, no way Mark Mulder should be 4-0 with a 0.53 ERA after 4 starts.

It's Super Bowl Sunday and I'm wondering two .... make that three things

1. How much money can I make if I bet $1000 on the Giants?

2. Is it too late to bet on the Giants?

3. I forgot what the third thing was ... I guess looking at all those women at the Super Bowl Pre-game party in AZ destroyed my train of thought

I just got a 360 and there's already a problem with the graphics card - now there's only blues, greens, browns, blacks, whites, and grays. Like playing in a friggin sewer sometimes.

One of the games I got was NCAA March Madness 08. I hate it. Yeah, it's a huge upgrade from 06 on the PS2. The graphics are awesome and the presentation is great (love the menus). However, my biggest pet peeve about the game is how many times shots within about three feet are made. I can have an opponent jump up, get whacked, and do this weird flip thing with the ball and it goes in, without a foul. This must happen 15 times during online play. Defenders almost never block shots, even when all they have to do is stick a finger up.

Xbox Live is pretty cool, though I hate paying $8 a month to use it. I like on the box how it says "FREE SILVER MEMBERSHIP INCLUDED!" when silver memberships are already free.

Go Giants!!

... We've finally made it, Spring training starts this week! Just reading that should make everyone feel good about this upcoming week.

...And I still got a smile on my face because of the Super Bowl. I don't know what I was most happiest about last Sunday, watching the Patriots lose or watching Belicheat look like a total idiot after the game. :p

...The Pro Bowl is today. Wake me when it's over. This game gets no ratings year after year. Even when I was in Hawaii no one there paid attention to it except for the occasional article in the paper about some player. Other than that, it was "oh well."

...I'm still home trying to get this knee healed so I can stay up later at night and I got to tell you the best stuff on TV is on after 11 pm. And I have no idea why.

...Been using the X-box also too. Haven't turned that on in months too. I've forgotten how much I enjoyed playing the All Star Baseball series by Acclaim and the NCAA 06 game by EA. Especially ASB, which I thought was underrated.

...I really found it humorous that Roger Clemens' wife is now being accused of injecting steroids. I expect that this week we will find out that Clemens' paperboy took them too.

...I've played about five or six games of Compmaniac's softball mod this week and I really enjoyed it. I sure wish he'd come back and finish it. He was really on to something.

...There is no better theme song for any TV show than the one for Hawaii Five-O. Period.

...For my own good I have to stop playing those search-and-find games from here on out. You know the ones I mean, where you got to find stuff in a picture and they are hidden in the photo? Those are the games. I get so involved that I turn the light off in the room, get close as I can to the screen and stare at it until I find every one of them. After awhile I get a headache because of this. But do I learn?? Noooo.

...In four days it will be Valentine's Day. That's the day you HAVE TO go out and buy that special girl in your life something because this is the day that Hallmark and the jewelry stores invented for you to spend more of your money because they decided they didn't get enough of it over Christmas. I hate this made up holiday.

...Call of duty is sweet so far.

....I finally thought I was getting good at it because last night I played and went 18-5,15-1,24-4, and I think 17-8. I play this morning, same settings, and are only getting 10-12 kills and anywhere from 9 to 15 deaths.

....yesterday I bought a product called PowerPump250. I got a good workout in after taking it and it did what it promised. That was one 1 scoop. Today, i took 2 scoops. Big mistake. Not to be too discriptive or disgusting, but if I had a theme song for the day Im having so far, it would be, "When the levee breaks"

....might play some COD4 later tonight. I played yesterday a lot in between playing Nascar 2003 on the PC. I can't believe how awesome that game is when you get the right settings down and get the right mods for it. Also, Links 2003 is back on the rotation.

.....OSU is going down to Indiana. Oh well, I dont really like basketball that much.

....Pryor should just go to Penn St. Give JoePa a chance to go out in style.

....the mlb2k8 demo is MIA along with the COD4 patch. Should I really be surprised? I thought the demo would be released around the start of spring training but Brinkman said early Feb. IW said the patch was coming out in Jan. (I think) I personally dont have problems with the sniper hit detection. Im just hoping for a ton of maps to drop. Like 20+

...just got back from a weekend of team building activities with my company and all of our European offices. We spent several hours out in the forests of northern Sweden playing games in the snow competing in teams. We also spent serveral hours drinking beer and partyin :)

...travelin' by train is widely underrated (at least here in Sweden). It's cheap, good for the environment and if you look at the time it takes to travel from door-to-door, train seems to be able to give the flights a good battle cuz you don't have the check-in time, security checks etc.

...only a month to go 'til I travel to the States for a 3 1/2 long vacation which include stops in SF, LA, SD, PHX and Vegas along with many more.

-Licey won the Caribbean Series this year, congratulations, but hey, Obregon beated them once. Now the caribbean baseball flame has been extinguished, it's your turn MLB...

-Almost a year ago on February 11th, 2007 MVP Caribe started as a little AAA project, now it has evolved a lot. It wouldn't have been possible without the MVPmods' admins and moderators since they didn't say "I don't care about this thing" and helped us with the mod :)

...so just when i thought rafael palmeiro had disappeared off the face of the earth, he showed up to his son's high school baseball scrimmage against my high school. even though he isolated himself from the rest of the fans, you could definitely tell he had not gotten out of shape (he had to be a good 220-230 lbs and this weight was definitely not fat). anyways, we beaned his son (lol) and then we picked him off first base, which got the "i dont believe it" reaction from palmeiro. oh yeah, he also drove an $80,000+ convertible rolls royce and his son was a good 6'5" 230 lbs.

...That Clemens Congressional hearing last week was interesting. I didn't get to watch all four hours of it but from what I watched, Clemens looks like he's done. I can still hear Waxman saying "It is not your time to argue with me" and all Clemens did was take it. What a way to end it.

...Now it makes me wonder, what's the next step? Is there another hearing?

...Of all the articles that covered this hearing, this one here is really the best. ESPN's Howard Bryant really wrote a gem.

...Joe Girardi says he has faith in Kyle Farnsworthless. Yikes. :nay:

...I still can not watch the movie Continental Divide even after all these years without getting depressed.

...I figure I got another few more weeks at home and then I got to go back to work. Trouble is, my knee is still sore from this surgery. :hmph:

...Robitussin may work pretty good for coughs and colds, but why the hell does it taste so bad?

...I had a nightmare last night that I lost the installations CD's to Mvp 05. That's why I woke up early today. And yes, I did take a quick glance to see if they were still there. :)

...It's 30 degrees outside right now. That makes it hard to think about anything to do with baseball.

...I've got the Sportsline photo site pretty much figured out right now since that's where I do most of my photo collecting. But for anyone who wants their own hi-res photos just be aware that any photo that starts out with the date on the caption and then the description will not be in hi-res. And that's too bad, because today there's a lot of photos of the Tigers in Spring Training, none of which are in hi-res.

...I don't know about you, but there hasn't been a good movie released since Christmas.

...Actress Kate Hudson is right up there on the annoying scale.

...The Paulie Walnuts commercials for Denny's crack me up.

Away I go:

I have found myself wanting to play MVP Baseball, less and less, recently. It's a damn shame too, 'cause for the past few years, I have gotten a lot of fun out of it. But, with my purchase of an XBox 360, and my impending purchase of a PS3, I feel it may be dead for me. Sure, I'll check Kraw's fantastic '08 Mod out, but I am 99% sure my copy is going to be retired.

...Of course, I say this all now, then the season will start up, and I will be itching to play a great baseball game again....and if MLB: The Show and MLB 2K8 blow....then it's back to the PC I go.

I have to agree with Y4L, there hasn't been very much in the way of movies recently, although I loved Rambo for what it was, 90 minutes of action filled gore. I ennjoyed Cloverfield, but other then that, I have spent my time catching up on some GREAT movies of '07.

Burnett has the opportunity to opt out of his contract at the end of the season, here's hoping he does.

Watched the slam dunk contest last night....it was great fun! I am not familiar with the Greene fellow from the Timberwolves, as I haven't watched much NBA since the Jordan-Era, but I found the guy far to cocky, and unimaginative, other then his "Birthday Cake" dunk. Dwight Howard on the other hand, was AMAZING!

That's about it, see you later...
