Quick Thoughts

  • That was a pretty sweet finish to the US-Costa Rica soccer match last night. I watched the last 25 minutes, just enough time to watch the US come back from a 2-0 deficit to tie the match. Thanks to Costa Rica's putzing around at the end of regulation, there was 5 minutes of stoppage time and the US scored on a corner kick in the 95th minute. Yah, it was pretty exciting, even for someone who isn't that in to soccer. A lot going on in this match even though the US was already qualified for the World Cup. There was the emotion of playing for their teammate who almost died in a traffic accident on Tuesday and the fact that Costa Rica would have qualified for the WC with a victory. All in all, a pretty exciting 25 minutes of sports right there.
  • In other news, should a top flight US national team lose to Costa Rica in any sport?
  • Last night's episode of South Park was great. Butters becomes a pimp. It was probably a 9 out of 10 on the Miller High Life Watchibility Scale. And yes, I am 32 and still watch South Park.
  • Peal Jam played 4 concerts out in LA last week. At one of the concerts Chris Cornell joined the band on stage for a Temple of the Dog reunion and sang Hunger Strike while Alice in Chains leader Jerry Cantrell came out and played the final guitar solo on Alive. That would most likely be the best concert ever.
  • I really hope we don't have a Phillies-Yankees World Series. Angles-Dodgers is what I am hoping for, but please, just not the Phillies-Yankees.
  • Game of the year for the Badgers on Saturday. If they win, they have a great shot at going 11-1. After Iowa the play at Indiana, vs. Purdue, vs. Michigan, at NW and at Hawaii. A loss and they still have a good shot at going 10-2, but it doesn't mean much when you lost to the only 2 good teams you played.

  1. I don't think there is an age limit for enjoying the aswesomeness of South Park.
